Chocolate is good with peanuts, hazelnuts, almonds, peanut butter, or espresso.


Yes -- ugly.

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.

Just because tastes are completely subjective is no reason to post lies about the delicious chocolate-raspberry combination.

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?

My old city has fitness trails with outdoor Smith machines. They're great to walk past hungover

there's no good reason for smith machines to exist, and they just take up space in decent gyms that could be occupied by more squat racks

also i really loving miss my gym

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

I'm obviously just being silly and unironically parks having more/better workout equipment would be good.

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.

You'd think that but stupid finds a way.

Chocolate and liquorice is the best combo, not that that's an unpopular opinion.

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.

Moana’s soundtrack is better than that of any other Disney/Pixar movie by a lot.
