Re: Unfluffing

Maybe get a heavy bag or striking dummy and wail on that? Joey Diaz has been saying it's the thing keeping him sane.

Re: Eye of the Goat

Walked to the river and then along the road a little. Thought about some dzogchen but the main pure awareness I had was that I had to piss so it was either walk home or stand there until it was dark enough to duck behind the shed and let it rip. This is an obvious thought but: if you keep doing the ...

Re: Eye of the Goat

BP -- 205 x 2, 2, 185 x 2 I had thought to do ladders but couldn't muster the enthusiasm or discipline. So I thought I would just bang out some doubles with the heaviest weight that felt okay until bar speed or RPE said to drop down, repeat the process then stop. The 185 set felt fine muscularly but...

I ran slam out of steam last night, partly due to the walk I suppose and partly the amount of writing I did. Today I was cooked but wanted to do something so

Re: Eye of the Goat

Oh and one more for tonight's epistle. I also did not think about my state of mind at time x. Most people use a lot of inertial thinking. We think a certain thing and revise our opinions slowly. A single piece of evidence can, should, cause us to rethink things. When I caught my landlord lying point...

Re: COVID-FIT: Survive the Chinese AIDS

I've read on the local bike boards that the drivers have gotten even more aggressive than usual with cyclists and there have been a few muggings as the animals south of the city find easy targets what with single cyclists out alone. My libertarian and conservative biases are in favor of a law, or a...

Re: Eye of the Goat

The other part I realized is that I thought I was thinking but I was really going over the same ground, without re-examining assumptions. So I wasn't actually thinking better or deeper or anything good, I was just rehashing. The example I can use here is chess. I'm not good, barely 1800, but I reali...

Re: Eye of the Goat

Two thoughts on this in case it's of interest - It's annoying that I didn't apply this one: If you have a problem that seems intractable, assess whether it really is, or should be. Meaning, some things do require a lot of calculation and/or knowledge, but should the given problem be this hard to unr...

Re: Eye of the Goat

Walked about two miles. Then did about 20 minutes of dzogchen on the riverbank. For the last year I was saying I don't have a place to meditate and there's the river 15 minutes away. I'm glad I found it. It's annoying how many times I have to learn the same lessons. I also had an idea, not sure if i...

Re: N-95 Masks from Dragon Door

There is this idea people often have that a given person will only be so big a piece of shit. They think that there's only so far someone will go. This is a dangerous idea. If a person is beyond a given point, hard to quantify exactly but I think it's a real line, then there's nothing he won't do.

Re: Eye of the Goat

Without the illusion that I have value and can do things it's harder to do things. With awareness of how much I suck comes a lot of doubt about myself globally, meaning even in areas where I'm not lacking, or nearly as much anyway. Many other people seem to be also consumed with self loathing but th...

Walked to the river. ' I've been writing more. I was about to say I've also been trying to do better thinking but that isn't true. I keep thinking I'll do better thinking but that's just an excuse to not actually do it. I keep neglecting to account for how important things are. My stack does work. T...

Walked to the river. Dzogchen for about ten minutes. 236. So no progress on fat loss. I have to add in some easy cardio and try harder to avoid sneaky cals. I thought I was doing that. So tired of doing the same crap. So tired of being so tired of it, etc., I keep thinking I understand and then . . ...

Re: My State Has Gone Full Fucking Clownship

You could frame it as "letting old people die to save the economy". You could also call it not destroying the economy at the cost of some number of lives. I haven't seen any assessments of economic damage vs. lives lost vs. societal disruption vs. government oppression. The experts on pandemics are ...

Walked to the river. I had an odd interaction with a dog where we each thought the other might be a threat, then I thought, okay, he's just a friendly puppy and scratched him a little. It's funny about how one perception leads to another. If I were some leftist self glorifying knowitall I would wax ...

Ed Coan's idea of "the body will only fight you for long" may apply here. If you stay on the path you will get to where the path leads.

600,000 people died in the Civil War. They didn't make it through anything. And there is no giving up civil liberties "for a bit'. It's a ratchet, it never goes back. Every temporary measure is eventually permanent. Income tax was temporary to pay for the war. The draft was temporary. And it doesn't...

Re: Alright MOFOs, let's get constructive

I don't see it that way. To us, the Depression is history and we can look at how good things were beginning in 1949 or so. For 20 years things sucked, hard. To most people, admittedly including me, the Depression was "people tightened their belts and made do". There had to be all kinds of horrors th...

Re: Alright MOFOs, let's get constructive

Flattening the curve is mostly delaying the inevitable and increasing the cost. We are going to get crushed. When we slow down the production, we are bringing on a lot of other ills. I say it's better to bring on a steep global depression now and get the outbreak and economic collapse over with befo...

Stressful dreams, the one that woke me was this: I was trying to put out a fire in the basement. I was trying to do it but as I am in life I was dazed and moving slowly and was mentally foggy. The dream before that was me realizing how much I had harmed myself in life, which is also something I was ...
