Bodyweight bench anyone?
Posted: 10/30/2012 10:18:58 PM
I was happy when I hit my bodyweight using dumbells on an incline bench. I always started my chest with incline bench once I decided to really focus on upper chest.

Planting seeds.
Posted: 5/21/2010 7:21:58 AM

Keep in mind that you need both a female and male fruit trees to have fruit, as pollination must occur


Only with certain types of trees, and as far as I know oranges are pretty much self fertile. However I've been told that trees grown from seed take many years to produce. I've heard numbers from 7-12+ years

Don't use OSB. It tends to swell really bad when it gets wet. How much shade do you expect from your pergola?

As a bow hunter, I'm interested in seeing it simply from an archery point of view. I'll have to wait for reviews before deciding if I'm going to see it in theater or not. Of course I never went to see Avatar in theater and it got great reviews.

I'm losing my lawn to clover!
Posted: 5/10/2010 7:16:58 AM

there must be several types of clover........the stuff we had in the yard when i was a kid was a lush thick green...tough and soft enough to play on......and stayed that way all summer......sure......let it go much more than a week and it flowered.....but if you mowed..........you had a great looking lawn all summer...........whereas the guy up the street who was fanatical about his yard had a nice stiff patch of brown ................i prefer the clover mixed in..........plus.......there was the countless hours of looking for 4 leaf clovers over the years


There are different types of clover. some of it is low lying and forms tight bunches of small clovers and others are more single clovers that grow to be alot bigger. Some can grow to be a couple feet tall. IIRC white clover is the one typically found in yards, at least in my area.

^^^My place was a foreclosure and hasn't been cut in who knows how long. the front lawn is about 3 1/2acres so its been a blast to cut. I need to go buy me a nice zero turn with a 60" deck. I do plan on planting a lot of clover for a variety of reasons, so we'll see how that turns out.

Some people like clover and actually prefer it in their lawns. It stays green, certain kinds stay short to eliminate/drastically reduce mowing, it blooms, it adds nitrogen to the soil, and is low up keep. Do a search and you'll find people who replaced all of their with clover

PROHIBITION
Posted: 5/6/2010 9:19:46 AM

You forgot when noting get rid of ~40% of prisons in the USA, eliminate 100's of 1000's of jobs in the field of corrections and the economies that rely upon them as those people get shuffled to other jobs...hopefully only temporarily in the case of the unemployed guards and prison staff but a major hit to those businesses that rely on the prisons for their livelihood. Major hit to law enforcement budgets...


I wasn't going to reply to this thread since I know its just going to be a useless arguement with those being for drug use not thinking things all of the way through. I will however addess this. You're right about the economic effects that would take place if prisons were to be shut down. When prisons are shut down, not only are the officers out of work, but now you have nurses, doctors, maintenance workers, contractors who install/maintain any speciality equipment, uniform companines, food venders, etc that will all take a hit. People also don't realize how big corrections is in some communities and the effects it would have to have correctional facilities shut down.

Why do so many people seem to hate cops?
Posted: 5/6/2010 9:08:30 AM
I'm glad some of you understand the context in which the statement was made. It's not about abuse, discrimination, or just for fun. I'm also not talking about any time recent, but many years ago. I knew a former Chicago PD officer that served back in the 70's and he said that they didn't make misdemeanor arrests. According to him thats why God invented alleys. He said that the criminals, while they didn't care for it, would rather get a little back alley justice and go about their day instead of being arrested and charged. Back on topic though about the civilians taking matters into their own hands. Civilians used to use their own form of justice. If they caught someone stealing, messing with children, hurting a women, or causing other trouble in society they'd make sure that person was less likely to do it again, at least around them. Society has since gone soft and would rather blame the victim or make excuses for the criminal instead of actually dealing with the problem one way or another.

When it comes to kids being beat, there's a big difference between being spanked and being beat. Being beat may cause problems later on in life. It could create abusive behavior in the person or it may cause them to seek out pain and abuse. Spanking, oth, when done correctly, is very unlikely to cause problems. Words alone aren't always enough to get results. It also works best when children are younger since when they get older a spanking often isn't going to be enough to change the situation.

As far as officers using force and it modifying behavior, it can and does work. I've stated on here before that I work in forensic mental health. Everyone at my facility is facing felonies charges or has been NGI on felony charges. Most have mental or behavioral disorders. Now crazy, doesn't mean that they're stupid. Just because someone has an altered state of mind, that doesn't mean that they can't comprehend something. Verbal intervention is tried first unless its a situation where someone is in danger of getting hurt. If force becomes necessary, the least amount needed to gain compliance is used. Usually the ones requiring the most amount of force are those with behavioral disorders or those who are faking. The like to push it to the absolute limits. It usually only takes a time or two of having to deal with us before they understand that they're behavior will no be tolerated. Also, anytime we walk into a dorm to deal with someone everyone else gets locked down. If everyone keeps getting locked down because of one person its going to create a problem. We might go down every time and never come to using force, but if his behavior continues so that the rest of the dorm suffers it won't take log before others on his dorm decide to modify his behavior.

Why are so many unemployeed
Posted: 5/4/2010 11:07:16 AM

looking for a better job ... while doing 60 hr. a week at a min wage crap job that burns your brain .... and still trying to raise a family etc.... yea ... right.
you know so many people capable of doing that?


I worked two different jobs doing 72-80 hrs a week, with one job across town from me and the other in another town going the oppisite direction, while having a family and going through all of the different stuff needed to be hired on by the sheriffs office. It meant be very tired all the time and not having much of a social life, but I did it.

I'm not saying that laziness is the only problem, but its a big one. Usually the lazy ones are the ones making excuses too.

Why are so many unemployeed

If you already know all the answers, then why did you ask the question?

Buy a newspaper that lists job classifieds. Count the number ("Tons" is not a number) of ads. Now call the newspaper's circulation department and ask what their area of circulation is. Some papers will list their areas of circulation on their websites. Take all of the towns/cities that the newspaper circulates to, add up all of their populations, and multiply the sum by 0.12. That's the number (statistically) of people looking for those jobs. Show your math.

(Disclaimers apply, of course. Not everyone is qualified for every job, it doesn't count the people looking for second jobs, and those looking but not filing unemployment - stay-at-home parents and the like.)

I know, math is hard. It's much easier to make snap judgements. But you asked.


I'm asking to start a discussion about it. I thought that was pretty clear and simple to understand. Sorry if it was beyond your comprehension.

You forgot a few key things in your math problem. A larger paper like the FL Times Union will be circulated into outlying smaller towns an hour+ away. However a lot of people from that far away won't make the commute, so while they're in the paper's circulation area, they won't be looking for jobs there and therefore shouldn't be counted in the number. Also the small towns/communities are likely to have their own paper with area jobs listed, but that paper is most likely going to be distributed only in that small community.
Also not all businesses advertise when they're hiring. Sometimes you have to go to places and just put in an application. Only one of the jobs I've ever had was listed in the classifieds. The rest were me hearing that _____ pays $X, and examples of hours work/type of work, and me going and applying, or I just simply inquired and applied.
Getting a job may require more work than just skimming the classifieds. If someone isn't qualified then they need to see what they need to do to get qualified. There's jobs out there that will employ you will you get your training and some will even pay for it. Then theirs the option to start a home business. Its just a matter of doing a bit of work.


I know a guy that fits into the lazy category. It drives me crazy because he's more than capable but just too lazy to hold down a job and would rather drink with welfare money. Kinda makes me annoyed that I pay taxes so other people can drink with my money. I feel bad for people that truly want to work and can't find employment. Some people are picky about what sort of job they will do however


Oh no. You must be mistaken. According to the masses on PoF there aren't any lazy people out there who would rather be a leech than to actually work. As far as being picky about a job, if someone needs the money, than being picky really isn't much of an option. We all have to do something we don't want at some point in out lives. That may mean working at an undesirable job for a few months, or even over a year, until something better is found, but you've gotta do what you've gotta do.

Why are so many unemployed
Posted: 5/1/2010 12:52:17 PM
Ah ignorance at it finest.. I'm sure you have never owned your own business, or even understand overhead. Let alone understand why one would want to keep it local. Of course you can get it cheaper, but it comes at a price... I doubt you would remember, but a lot of the brand names that had a great reputation got swept up in the WW buying and have over seas manufacturing plants. Naw it all became the disposable society, all about saving a buck...

More to the point "Why are so many unemployed?" Because of people like you with this mindset...


I've never owned one, but I've helped run one. I saw a lot of errors in the way the store owner did things, and was able to bring in new products that sold well, while be able to compete with online pricing and the owner still making a nice profit from the sell. For example, if a product that I don't need any help with service on costs me $45 in the store, plus tax (the local rate is 7%), and I can get the exact same product online for $30 +$5 S&H, I'm saving over $10. Those are real numbers for a product that I purchased. The product cost under $20 for the shop to buy. I brought the product into the shop that I was working for and marked it at $35. I basically matching the online price, and the owner is still making money. Now I could have raised the price closer to MSRP, but at the price point of the item it would have greatly reduced sales.
Its examples such as that, that I'm referring too.
Local businesses need to get into the 21st century and realize that online retail has skyrocketed. What they need to do to compete is look at online pricing to see what their competition is selling the goods at, and whats actually selling. Thats another error the shop I worked for made. Buying goods that simply didn't sell without closing them out. Once you figured that out, you need to stay on top of things. When a new product comes out, get it in your store. Even if its a high end item, or hard to get, the fact that you've got one in the store will get people into the store to look at it. They may not buy it right then, or at all, but now that they're in the store they're more likely to buy something. Those people that have to have the latest and the greasest will probably end up buying new assessories for it.
After the store gets the product and pricing figured out (which should be done before the store opens) they need to work on service. Great service allows the shop to command higher prices and get it. The trick is finding the balance. You will still find people who strictly shop price, but a good business can do well by charging slightly more and offering great service.
Me personally, I'd rather spend my money locally. I can't afford however to pay a lot more money for the same product. I definately won't pay more if I don't get good service. A few times, I've even walked out of a shop to go to a different one that charged a little more because of bad service. It all comes down to how things balance out


well actually what I am getting at .... is looking at what you are buying and where it came from .... then..... first off .... do you really need that item?
if not .... then why buy it ... try to satisfy that consumer need with something produced locally .... not just sold locally by some little store.... produced locally. It might even be sold in the big W. but pressure those guys to supply more local products.
go to flea markets ... farmer's markets ... craft shows.
stop buying disposable garbage made in China. Of course its cheap... but will it last? and do you really need it? or could you save that money to be spent on a local theatre production or band?
Maybe spend it on some local beer or wine


Of course if an item isn't needed and isn't in the budget it should be passed on until it can be afforded. As far as where items came from, buying local, or even US made isn't always an option or the smart thing to do. Local foods are great compared to most store bought foods. I recently bought some plants (over $300 worth for 6 of them) form a local nursery, instead of going to a chain store. I bought some jellies at $4 each for a small 6-8ounce jar. Sure I could have gone to the grocery and bought a bigger jar, and probably paid less for it, but I doubt it'd match the taste. As far as US made products go, they aren't always better. Sometimes, Chinese made products are actually equal to higher quality. Don't get me wrong. I love US made products. I enjoy cycling and two of my bikes are Cannondales, which are handmade in the US, and they are very proud of it. Of course they come at a price as well. However when it comes to things such as electronics, Asian products can be hard to beat. I agree with the statement about really needing something. I hear all the time about America being more consumation based and less production based. Until we change as a nation we will continue to have problems.

as for another part of the unemployment .... take the stuff you buy ... then look at where it is made.
If you bought more locally ... your local economy would improve
more local people would be hired to local businesses
your kids might even get part time jobs and learn work ethics.
that simple.


Very true. However that involved the local businesses offering decent products at a reasonable price. If you can get the same product at WW or online for much cheaper, it doesn't make sense to spend the extra money to buy it from the little guy. If its a small difference I think that its worth it, since often times you can get the difference back if you're a regular customer.

Posted: 4/27/2010 9:57:24 AM

Golf IS a sport because its simple: he who puts the ball in the hole in the lest number of strokes wins. As is bowling... sports where a winner is decisive, there is physical proof of who did what and did it better, and rely minimally on outside influences, whether it be a judge or ref... who could have poor judgement or ulterior motives.


So is putt-putt and skeeball sports? After all they're only miniature versions of the "sports" you mentioned.

Of course there's going to be a few nuts out there, but when you concider the fact that there's millions of online disagreements every day, the odds of something coming from it is slim to non, unless the people already know each other in person.

recreational burning in residential neighborhoods

You can put away the "Don't Tread On Me" flag. What those of the anti-regulation teabagger mentality don't seem to appreciate is that Americans actually have a system of taxation WITH representation. It's a beautiful thing!

BIG GOVERNMENT! GOVERNMENT REGULATION! LIONS AND TIGERS AND BEARS, OH MY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you saying you don't approve of America's representative democracy? You're not wearing a Brown Shirt, are you?


Except for the fact that the people aren't being represented as they should. Thats the problem. Regulation is rarely the answer. A quick look in the history books should teach you that.

recreational burning in residential neighborhoods
Posted: 4/17/2010 3:49:22 PM

I know that's right. And what a bummer that is. Think about it ... taking another into consideration probably means you'd never get any sex because doesn't that involve taking your partner into consideration?

It probably also means not being able to do most anything in your life because unless you are able to take others into consideration, you'd probably not even get through the line in the grocery store - probably never even get through the traffic to get to the store.

For those who think it's asking too much to take others into consideration - good that you don't (and will never have) any physical problems or sensitivities and will never need anyone to take your feelings or situation into consideration. We wouldn't want anyone to have go out of their way to be considerate of you all. That'd be asking too much and then those people "won't be able to do things they enjoy".


You're missing the point. Almost everything can be linked to someone else's concideration somehow. If everyone did that all the time, than no one would be able to truly enjoy life. There's almost always a compromise that can be made where one is able to enjoy the activities they enjoy and the other isn't being put out all the time from it. If we can't even enjoy legal activities at a reasonable level on our own property then there's a problem.

When some big guy in your correctional institution gets you in a corner and tells you to open wide you'll just "suck it," right? Good advice. You just do that because we wouldn't want you going around "ruining other peoples recreational activities."


Here we go with personal attacks, because someone doesn't like what someone else has to say. Very mature. I haven't always appreciated some of my neighbors activites when I lived in the city, but because most of them tried to quite things down at a someone decent hour and it wasn'tan often occurance I didn't bother them about it. You should try talking to them again using a different tactic so that you won't be bothered and they are still able to do something that they obviously enjoy doing

I figured that was the case. I've only known her a few weeks, and she's religious, so its not like we've known each other a long time and are super close or she's just looking to get some. I'm unsure about the age thing. I guess the biggest concern is that different discuessions I've found out that we both want a LTR and I'm wondering if there will still be any attraction down the road. I'm just hoping it doesn't cause any conflicts with my co-worker/neighbor since he is her age and was interested in her in the past.

I met a women 14 years older than me through a co-worker. He wasn't trying to set us up or anything, we just both happened to be at his place at the same time. We get along great, but haven't had any conversations about a relationship, so we're just friends. My question is, is that often when we hang out she'll lean up agaisnt me or snuggle up next to me. I'm wondering if this means anything, or if she is just really comfortable with me but there's nothing there. I don't really want to just come out and ask her and make things ackward. She's 39 or 40 so please don't answer unless you're close to her age. I've got a feeling that there's something there, but being so much younger than her I'm not sure. If we were the same age, I'd ask her out in a heartbeat, but the age thing has me wondering

Posted: 4/2/2010 9:25:41 AM
It sounds like mom should be raising him better so stuff wouldn't come up for you to "handle". It really puts you in a tough spot because if he doesn't get punished than that can lead to bigger trouble later on in life. However since you have limited time with him, I agree with your point about spending the time you have together punishing him.

^^^In his defense he did say "MOST". While I can't say most for sure, I'd definately say that a large portion of it is because of the mentioned reason

Explain this to me: Why is it a waste that Ricky Martin is Gay?
Posted: 3/31/2010 7:53:49 AM

First Clay Aiken, now Ricky Martin


You couldn't tell Clay Aiken was gay? I pinned him as being gay back when he was with on Idol. You can just tell with some people

Why are so many men single when all they have to do is go down the local bar and find tons of single women


Maybe they want a relationship and not a booty call

Drunk loud parties when I am trying to sleep

Ok. Most people aren't referring to that rural when they mention country. It seems that to a lot of people country is more than a few minute drive to the nearest store, and lots over 1/2 acre are concidered to be big

You know citizens are demanding too many rights when.....


....when they think they know them. Never heard of a noise ordenance that applied at 2pm before.


I know what you mean....When the housing market gets better i am saling my house and i will be moving in the country...Between the barking dogs/two face neighbors/noisy motorcyles.....I have learned my lesson well....If i sale or lose my home i wll never ever live in another neighborhood....I would live in a shack before i ever live in another neighborhood...People could careless about there neighbors..It is all about them!!!!!Before i bought my house i lived in apartment....That was worse...Never do that again either...I will Live in a single wide moble home in the country before i do that again...At least you have your peace and quiet...People in general could careless...It is All about them...


There's dogs in the country too. There's a better chance that it'll be a hound dog and may bark or howl at anytime it scents something. People also shoot their guns in the country. The love that some have for motorcycles doesn't end when they move to the country. It might actually increase since there's normally better roads to ride on. Farm equiment can be loud. Roosters don't always crow at daybreak. A friend of mine's normally starts about 5am, but 4am isn't uncommon. People who work their land tend to get up early to start work before it gets to hot. Need I go on?


Friday night some new neighbors had a loud party. One of the neighbors called the police & everyone was sent home. Today I woke to find every tree on our block had been tp'd. Every house on the block had a huge penis spray painted on the front. Several of the neighbors had their cars scratched, up one side & down the other.
This was a nice quiet neighborhood until the family of riff raff moved in.

Of course we all will stick together & do what we can. More than likely we will make their lives so miserabe they will move. It really is a shame that some people have no respect for others & just assume they can do whatever they please & the rest of us should just shut up & go along with it. Too bad cause now our quiet neighborhood has become a get even war zone


Thats good if ya'll can stick together, but it may cost several thousand dollars in property damage before they move. If they bought instead of renting, it'll be even harder to get them to move. If they're renting simply get in contact with the landlord.

Something like that, feel free to call the Non-emergency Police line


Non-emergency numbers are great. I've yet to make a 911 call, but have made a decent number of non-emergency calls. I have most of the local counties non-emergency numbers in my phone in case they're needed.

Depends on how well it was put on. I used a spray and on some sections it pulled right off with almost no residue, others it has been an ongoing battle. I think the spray was called WP Chomp.

Why do so many people seem to hate cops?
Posted: 3/25/2010 8:15:41 AM

I'm not so sure its hate....I already wrote a responce. In reality you have a person with a gun and the law backing them...obviously people are going to look at them differently. Some abuse the authority, others don't.

I think some of the problem is that you can't talk to someone like that like a normal person, say something they don't agree with or argue a point, and people feel it will come back to haunt them...others its personal experiences.

I understand, they are only human and what they go thru in a day would surely effect anyone.

My objection these days is if you ever call them, you always hear...sorry I can only write a report...you will have to take it to court.

Over glorified report writers? Maybe not, but it seems that way.


Arguing with an officer really depends on both people involved. If the officer is decent, or at the very least professional things should be fine on his end. If the other person can be decent and respectful with their side of things then there is nothing to worry about. As far as only being able to do a report thats the legal system. If you want it changed then you need to vote for politicians that are hard on criminals and don't bend over to the ACLU.

^^^Polls indicate that a majority of people didn't want this health care bill passed though. While polls can be flawed, I doubt that they're all wrong, and even factoring in a margin of error they still show that American's are agaisnt it.

What to write a prisoner
Posted: 3/22/2010 5:02:05 PM
I wouldn't especially be in federal prison. People get deceived and suckered into stuff all the time.
