I don't see how google is any worse than apple or the other big tech companies. They don't seem to have the our way or the highway policies of apple and microsoft used to have.

I know I'm not a good person. This is horrible and tragic. It should make your heart break, but I busted out laughing when I read it:

Girl ends life to donate eyes to dad
Ashis Poddar, TNN Jul 4, 2011, 12.15am ISTNADIA: For days, Mumpy would listen quietly as the elders discussed how only an eye surgery could save her father's vision and a kidney transplant her brother's life. But both surgeries were beyond the family's meagre means. So, Mumpy hit upon a plan, which to her 12-year-old mind seemed the answer to all troubles. She would kill herself, which would save the dowry, too, and her organs would give her loved ones back their lives.

Mumpy did stick to her plan. But the suicide note in which she had scribbled down her wishes was found the day after she was cremated

I'm so ashamed of myself.

I should hope so. (is there a Darwin award for this?)

I hate it when people who smoke say "You've got to die from something."
Makes me want to smack them in the face and say
"die already, you're using oxygen and we could use some transplants for people who want to live."

Wonder if she's a fan of Desperate Housewives

On a more lighter topic. I've had the FedEx shipping & tracking page up for the past 2 days. My power rack's getting closer and closer by the minute! Perfect timing too, cause the wife is taking the kids with her to her mothers this weekend after we get these two wedding cakes done today. It will give me much needed bachelor time to drink beer, eat pizza, and all around just be me while finishing up the first reading of the SS book. I'm looking for Monday to start the program if everything happens well.
One thing that made me laugh last night while reading SS about the use of gloves in the gym... "And if you insist on using them, make sure they match your purse."

@jlmoss glad to hear I'm not the only one checking the Fedex tracking page when a new toy is on the way :smile:

I don't know what's funnier, the Mumpy story or that $75 belt. Good posts guys!

isn't it great when you realise you're doing something right? Since hurting my back (which I realise I have been whinging about for ages now, just bear with me) I've put a lot more stock in my warm up, deciding every session to start with foam rolling the hell out of my quads/hips, stretching my hip flexor then activating my glutes with hip thrusts.

Just read a t-nation article today that recommends doing pretty much exactly what I've been doing. Only difference is using a dynamic hip mobilisation instead of a static stretch and a single leg thrust instead of double; 2 changes I am going to implement next workout.

I was waiting for him to put the bar through the TV or knock over the bookcase. What a letdown. :twisted:
