I don't either!

One time someone gave me a chocolate-covered strawberry, and I wanted to eat the strawberry, so I picked the chocolate off of it but there was chocolate stuck in the seed pits and I nearly threw up when I bit into it. My logic was faulty, I'll admit that.

So exercise is not something you have much first hand familiarity with.

edit: or parks, for that matter. What parks are you going to that have a variety of sizes of rocks? The rocks I've seen in parks are typically gravel. Maybe some decorative boulders. You can't just got to a park and be like, OK, where are the 20 pound rocks?

The only gyms near me have like 12 smith machines and 2 squat racks, if they have any at all. Nobody uses the drat Smith machines so there’s always a huge wait for the squat rack. It’s obnoxious.

They're captive in the machine and you use a rod to select the weight you want. You'd have to go at it with a wrench to get them out

I don't think we're talking about the same sort of machine. What you're describing is how most weight machines work and they are loving fine for what they do.

A Smith machine is pretty much a squat rack with a barbell locked into the sides of it. It's "good" in that you can't crush yourself with it, but it locks everyone using it into a single range of movement which is extremely bad. And you'll never actually be working with weights that'd crush you unless you are a huge pro lifter anyway. You can easily, safely fail out of pretty much any lift in a squat rack with a free barbell and some plates. You can lift more in a smith machine maybe but it'll gently caress up your body, physically not aesthetically. It's good for accessory lifts but you really shouldn't do big lifts on it.



That's a Smith machine

There's a scrap iron outdoor gym in the Ukraine where every thing is hand made and the weights and bars are chained to the racks or benches.

There are plenty of songs in Frozen that are better than Let it Go, and I don't just mean after hearing Let it Go for the millionth time and getting sick of it.

The very first time I watched Frozen I thought that "For the First time in Forever" was the better song, and I still do.

Then you haven’t seen the worst Simpsons episodes. I saw one from 2014 and it was easily one of the worst TV episodes I’ve ever seen (the episode of Allen Gregory I hatewatched was worse... but it was a near thing).

It was the Lena Dunham one, so it was this trifecta of over the top cameos (literally the entire main cast of girls), being a terrible “Homer and marge split up” episode, and an “it was all a dream” ending. It was painfully bad.

Intellectual property law is not merely a flawed system but intrinsically bad. There would be literally no negative consequences to getting rid of it entirely, except to large media corporations - and making things worse for them would be good for society in general and particularly for artists/writers/creators of all kinds. The idea that copyright protects an individual's ability to control and profit from their own work is propaganda. It doesn't and it was never designed to.

There was also an episode in which Moe's bar washrag becomes sentient and tells the audience a story, which I haven't seen but it seems almost universally

I watched every episode of Allen Gregory because it was a tire fire I couldn't look away from.

I like the joke where Brian is going on Bill Maher's show (something to do with being a smug rear end in a top hat) and he got mad about the candy bowl because he had told them to get rid of the gray ones. It was a good one-line joke, nobody drew attention to it, and the scene moved on. It was very un-Family Guy, and I think that's why I like it.
