@pavel @oleksandr yes I agree. Actually it's really hard to get a thermonuclear weapon to go off right and you have to constantly maintain all the materials and components... this is a good thing :)

But 50% working, or even 10% or even 1% is enough to cause global catastrophe.

At any rate the country's run by thieves, they won't destroy the world as the stuff they stole is _in the world_ :)

It's the fanatics who are the real risk with that stuff.

The big challenge from a psychological perspective is to find way to deal with this and let it go.

As the saying goes, you can't drink poison and expect the other person to die.

I do find humour is helpful here, at the very least you can ridicule these types. A potent weapon for sanity throughout the ages.

One of the hardest things to accept as an adult is just how deep injustice goes in every area of life.

I'm not talking the big injustices, I'm talking the small ones, the petty ones. Ones that might, though in fact, be big in your life.

Sadly those who do you wrong, speak smooth words justifying what they did, using power to lie their way out of it in a way you can't rebut, - they'll get away with it.

Completely. With no come back. And they'll be happy, and won't even think they've done anything wrong. They'll never learn, grow old and die, surrounded by loving family.

Nothing will right the wrong, correct the incorrect.

Liars are believed, rewarded and lauded, truth tellers are more often than not punished and debased.

There are myriad awful shitty people out there who will absolutely fuck you over and absolutely get away with it, thrive and be loved by society.

There's no magical daddy in the sky who'll come fix it.

Truly, really and honestly facing up to that is a fucking hard thing.

I think a lot of people at some level harbour some belief that 'karma' applies or the universe will 'balance' itself or that people will notice the terrible pieces of shit and cast them out.

Nope, sorry, it's the opposite. You'll be punished for pointing it out :)

And everything happens for no reason.

Oh so when Buddha answers questions nonverbally, it's a "koan" and he's "reaching enlightenment" but when I answer questions nonverbally it's "rude" and I ‚ÄĚneed to work on my social skills"

@conor @sven sure, squat aborts are grim anyway, but I'll definitely prefer the squat out of it approach.

Sorry that abort got so squirly like that! Squats be scary man

@conor @sven anyway I found another tool in the arsenal.

Meet Bob! Bob helps me with cardio and also dealing with frustrations in life.

He does this by being punched in the face and body, quite a lot!

@conor @sven lol ok I'll maybe practice doing the deep squat abort instead then.

Wondering if I should go so far as to bolt the fucking thing into the ground... I guess if done slow toppling less likely

@pavel @oleksandr I also think it's time to remove all restrictions on kit. Long range missiles, have them.

Fuck Russia, let them reap what they sowed.

@sven @conor yeah I'm definitely going to practice this!

I've seen a vid of a guy falling back and the thing toppling and it's not nice... and my rack isn't bolted down...

@conor @sven my short height and arms that go up quite high mean the former should be feasible.

The latter i'd worry about hurting my fingers + forearms!

@sven @conor hm I've assumed my abort would be me to squat super low and drop the bar onto the safeties and kind of hobble out, but maybe I've got this all wrong...

I've not had to abort a squat yet thankfully

@conor @sven yeah I know! I hate that! I guess the expect we all go with friend WHAT FOOLS lol.

I specifically got the kit with safety arms on, I started off with some without and thought 'you know what, nah'.

There's power cages with arms often at least.

@pavel @oleksandr yes I agree with this.

I think too many cowards fear something Russia simply won't do unless we nuked the Russian mainland, frankly.

They of course will threaten it but you don't win against bullies by giving in especially when those threats are bullshit.

We need to get a lot more aggressive and end this stalemate, make it clear that no we're not taking this shit.

You want to think there's a conspiracy against you motherfucker? Want to see what that'd ACTUALLY look like?

@conor @sven I have some kit in my car port, concrete floor and one thing I can tell you is that if you fuck around with your bar and the 25kg plate falls off and hits the concrete you can end up with a lovely chunk of it smashed off :P

This may or may not have happened to me this morning
