  1. I was recently published online and the damn editor removed ALL of my oxford commas on the first edit and returned my piece back to me for a few things I needed to polish up. I added them back in before re-submitting and he removed them again the second time before publishing. I also found out during that process that even when semi-colons are used properly, they will be removed and replaced with dashes.

    Exercise and Fitness: bro science debunked

    Got 4 workouts in last week, which felt really good, but somehow I managed to put on a pound instead of the opposite. Been sticking to my diet really well, though I haven't resorted to counting calories yet. I think I may need to up my fat intake and cut the little bit of alcohol I do drink out for a while.

    Baby was up at 4am again this morning, so figured I'd hit up a 6am class since I was up. Gonna see if my wife wants to take a kid break this evening so she can go if she wants to. Bought some keto strips too to see how I've been doing. Not super accurate, but tells me I'm in about a medium ketogenic state. Room for improvement, but overall pretty happy with the progress so far and prioritizing 3-4 workouts a week while adding a walk or two during the day.

    US Politics: compromising positions

    Right... so it may have hurt in the short term in order to sell themselves better as the party of family values for over a decade, and was still being used as ammunition as recently as 2016 against Hillary. At best you could say it was a wash, but I'd put the move as clearly benefitting the GOP.

    Exercise and Fitness: bro science debunked

    You should pick up some of this and keep some in your bag at all times since you travel often: https://www.amazon.com/Zarbees-Naturals-Daytime-B-Complex-Elderberry/dp/B01M3URAP2/ref=sr_1_8?crid=1TQQPJCO3GG35&keywords=zarbees+cough+and+mucus&qid=1552307330&s=gateway&sprefix=zarb%2Caps%2C304&sr=8-8 I just mix it in some cold water and chug it down whenever I have a tickle in my throat or a bit of the sniffles. Since I've gotten it early I haven't had a full on cold or flu in over two years. Before I started doing that I'd use it after getting sick and would feel better in a day or two. There's also a nighttime version.

    Athletic Debate: Who Is The Greatest Of All Time?

    Don't watch much baseball, do ya? Today's players are as athletic as any sport out there with a few exceptions that prove the rule. I was in the best shape of my life playing college baseball, training 4+ hours a day with at least an hour more in the weight room.

    Was able to sneak in another 6am workout this morning. Down 3 lbs of water weight Decided to explore some new recipes in my diet this go around and made a delicious cauliflower 'penne' bake that I've been reheating on a bed of chicken. Also made some cauliflower 'mac' and cheese that I've been mixing with jerk chicken. Broccoli cheddar soup was a couple nights ago. And tonight I'm making an asian cabbage stir fry with veggie crumbles instead of meat. It's referred to as crack slaw in the recipe I got. Wife is also loving that I'm making all of this as veggie options for her as well.

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    There's more leeway in those characters (and why I think the MCU has had more success rolling out). Batman and superman fans (and Joker/Lex Luther) expect their characters to be a very certain way and if they don't meet those expectations it is a travesty. Harley, Aquaman, and WW don't really have that problem.

    Popular Book series you’ve tried and failed to get into:

    Lightbringer by Weeks, when I loved is other series despite the childish representations of sex and swearing I read the Long Price Quartet and never got into it. I did finish it, but it was a huge slog. Wheel of Time I've finally read the first book, still have yet to start the 2nd a year later Malazan I read 3 of those behemoths and I didn't really enjoy any of them. Won't be treading any further there.

    US Politics: compromising positions

    What are the chances Trump doesn't leave if he loses? I read an article yesterday about how he's already laying the groundwork for the inevitability, with a tweet about how the democrats can only win if they cheat, then the head of his campaign said that democrats have a 0% chance of winning a fair election, then SHS saying that democrats are only doing their investigations because they know they can't win in a fair election. Trump was already doing this in 2016 when he didn't have power, so how does it play out when he refuses to leave and 35% of voters believe him? Have we ever had a non-peaceful transition of power before?

    US Politics: compromising positions

    Yeah, it seemed to me she was talking about politicians and not all American Jews. Specifically, politicians that are taking lots of money from AIPAC and in turn do things like pass laws making it against the law to criticize Israel.
  13. One show that I remember enjoying a lot and being the first show I was really into that got cancelled was the Black Donnelys. It got canned mid-season and the last 3 episodes were only available online.

    @Iskaral Pust My wife has already lost 1/2 of her weight gain and is feeling really good. She'll get cleared to work out again in ~2 weeks, but so far has done really well in postpartum with just about everything. Also, just want to throw out how much my wife is an absolute badass. She actually taught a barre class the morning she gave birth, and has already taught two yoga classes within the first month after having the baby. It's part of the reason why I'm so motivated to get back into some workout routine. This morning my son was up a 4, bright eyed and bushy tailed. So I ended up going to the 6am class which was great. SUPER tough because I'm out of shape, but it felt good regardless.
