Nah don't worry about it. National Socialist America won't be like Nazi Germany.
User avatar #80511 - marinepenguin (03/16/2015) [-]
I was of the idea that National Socialism usually revolves around having a "pure and superior" race, of which it's citizens are comprised of, while other races are considered guests and 2nd class.

What would a National Socialist US look like?
User avatar #80515 - lulzformalaysiaair (03/16/2015) [-]
In my personal opinion, A National Socialist America god I hate to use the word socialist but I'd rather have Nationalism then classical liberalism, fiscal policy is a discussion for another time would be like this.

So first let me establish the idea that culture in a country is very important. Culture makes us what we are, how we think, our attitudes to certain things, ie- what cultural marxism did in the 60s. So we want to establish and create a better culture in America. Now I wouldn't be slaughtering people on the street or something but I'd work to create a better culture for America.

So what is our goal? To keep America a white majority country with conservative values.

So immigration of course will be far more strict, and with a hint of discrimination, ie- we prefer Europeans to others. Obviously we work to assimilate, not to create a multicultural society. Affirmative action out right off the bat, everyone has equal opportunity to university therefore there is no quote on how many niggers you need. People will shun the LGBTQLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ community, especially anything after LG. Again, I'm not for murdering people, more of a cultural revolution.

It will be illegal to try and change the gender of anyone not 18+. Obese children will be looked at as child abuse (depending on height to age to weight ratio of course). Politicians, senators and above will be American born. Racial profiling is perfectly fine if a reason is given. Obviously pro-gun.

Now onto Mexico, our favorite wittle neighbor (of course not). There will be a good border built next to Mexico because the country and all below it cannot be trusted. As in they are literally invading America. So illegals will not be given status as citizens and will remain illegal as a punishment for illegally coming here, children born from illegals will however be American. Crossing to America is illegal and will be met with some kind of punishment. Employers can no longer higher illegals and will be met with fines. I'm not sure what I would do for the illegals who have lived in America for a long time, I'd have to think about that.

Onto muslims, you swear the oath without the burka crap, you testify without the burka crap, you show up to work with proper clothing, especially businesses that want business stlye clothing. You will not be met with religious accommodation.

Businesses have the right to deny service.

User avatar #80528 - akkere (03/16/2015) [-]
But a number of these aspects directly contradict national socialism as a whole, pro-gun and businesses having the absolute right to deny service especially, because both of these rights alone could be used to oppose the regime.
User avatar #80532 - lulzformalaysiaair (03/16/2015) [-]
That's why I said I hated using the world Socialism. More like National Conservatism?
User avatar #80533 - akkere (03/17/2015) [-]
Sounds like it would fit the bill, though it's more or less an oxymoron. A lot of politicians who fall under United States Conservatism don't exactly like the idea of the larger federal government that a National-anything would require, which would be necessary if Canada was even to be thought of being annexed at all (a silly thought in my opinion because of how much opposition it would be met with from everywhere in-USA, Canada, and the international stage in general).
Also, the degree of conservatives that this sort of structure would require are absolute opponents to illegals regardless of their "tenure" in living here; one year or twenty, they'd be thrown out. (Not a critique, just an observation for the "Not sure what to do for those that lived for a long time"). I'm pretty sure they'd even do away with the "naturalization by birth" bit unless you were born from at least one parent of US citizenship. Hell, I've even heard some wanting to go back to the old model of requiring to own property outright to vote.
User avatar #80534 - lulzformalaysiaair (03/17/2015) [-]
Yeah well my thought is that it would balance out.

Less immigration means we cut funding to all the immigration parts of the gov
No affirmative action means we also cut funding I will use cut funding interchangeably with less government

>It will be illegal to try and change the gender of anyone not 18+. Obese children will be looked at as child abuse (depending on height to age to weight ratio of course).

>Onto muslims, you swear the oath without the burka crap, you testify without the burka crap
No major government addition here. Just some laws.

>especially businesses that want business stlye clothing. You will not be met with religious accommodation.
>Businesses have the right to deny service.
Reduces government too

A lot of this stuff actually reduces government, except the Mexico thing of course. That would be a big project but it is necessary and I would say one of the most important (can't do without). But it would balance out with the others and it will provide many jobs, as well theoretically the problem would go away over time so it would reduce.

Also I don't really care for any annexation of Canada so that won't do anything.

>Also, the degree of conservatives that this sort of structure would require are absolute opponents to illegals regardless of their "tenure" in living here; one year or twenty, they'd be thrown out.

Well I guess it's fine by me, this would probably make a big police state but like I said it would decrease over time. We can also take the funding from the enormous military budget which won't see any major decrease but may lose some percent due to the allocation of that money onto more important projects like the Mexico border.

>Hell, I've even heard some wanting to go back to the old model of requiring to own property outright to vote.
Which reminds me, you can't vote if you receive welfare should be one. This also obviously decreases big brotha gobment. And I think death penalty with an efficient system. As in if you are found guilty (and it would be 100% proof guilty of murder or attempted or rape) you cannot repeal your punishment and you will be killed in the next few days with an efficient method like firing squad or cheap poison or electrocution chair. Probably poison, it should be cheap though.

Yeah so it's not exactly National Socialism but it's definitely incorporating a great amount of nationalism.

>this would probably make a big police state but like I said it would decrease over time
What if it didn't? What reason would the police state have to reduce itself in the first place, when it could find new ways to maintain itself? Take for example -
>Obese children will be looked at as child abuse
How else would one enforce this law without the "arrest" of a child, and forced medical examination on them on a large scale, without some kind of police state behind the issue? I'm not even sure if conservatives would advocate this sort of law to begin with for this reason and some others. The proponents to a police state will find a reason to maintain it as such, especially with how easily a place like Boston transformed into such after the Marathon Bombing.
>Which reminds me, you can't vote if you receive welfare should be one
I'd think on top of all this, Welfare as a whole might simply be abolished and done away with as well, as part of a pursuit to reduce the need for a federal government that comes with a good deal of conservative ideals. This could mount quite the opposition.

And that's not even addressing some other issues national conservatism will be met with; Where do we take our end of the war in the middle east? Do we give tax breaks to all religious institutions or just the Christian institutions "our nation was founded on"? Will we eventually end the federal government, akin to Anarcho-capitalism? If so, who stops or continues the immigration; the states? What happens to the eminent domain which is frequently brought up for projects like the Keystone Pipeline XL? Etcetera, etcetera.

>What if it didn't? What reason would the police state have to reduce itself in the first place, when it could find new ways to maintain itself?
Well like I said this is a very necessary part of the resurgence of the nationalistic movement, I can't stress that enough. not that any of this is even remotely likely sadly Yeah police departments will probably be equipped with their own branches just for illegals but when the border is built these programs will naturally have a decrease in funding because statistics will show the amount of illegals are decreasing. Plus it won't really effect natural citizens too much except for the people who hired illegals maybe compensation for them could be in order, idk I don't want to get too deep into this .

>How else would one enforce this law without the "arrest" of a child, and forced medical examination on them on a large scale, without some kind of police state behind the issue?

Maybe we can do away with this idea because of muh freedom but I was really just talking about children that are severely obese and are not being helped. I think people who see this should have the right to call child protective services. Again I don't know about specific numbers but severely obese children. This won't really require much of a police state honestly..

>I'd think on top of all this, Welfare as a whole might simply be abolished and done away with as well, as part of a pursuit to reduce the need for a federal government that comes with a good deal of conservative ideals. This could mount quite the opposition.
Is this your idea as to something you would support or do you think it will just naturally happen? I'm not really about to due away with all welfare, however when I think of a situation like this, I almost feel like the people dont deserve the children and they should be taken away but that is going too far, IDK what you think? --> I mean a single mothers that literally cant provide for her children so she needs welfare to survive. I guess its kinda necessary for ones with too many children? I'm not sure, also tards and shit will of course get welfare for obvious reasons.

>Where do we take our end of the war in the middle east? Do we give tax breaks to all religious institutions or just the Christian institutions "our nation was founded on"?
Well what do you think? (also state if this is your own opinion or what you think would happen with the current system)

>Will we eventually end the federal government, akin to Anarcho-capitalism?
No

>If so, who stops or continues the immigration; the states?
Nope, federal takes care of this.

> What happens to the eminent domain which is frequently brought up for projects like the Keystone Pipeline XL? Etcetera, etcetera.
What do you mean eminent domain? Also give your own opinion because I am interested.
User avatar #80553 - akkere (03/17/2015) [-]
I'm not really supportive of this idea as it just adheres to one end of the spectrum with little consideration to anything else. My personal opinion to the handling of the issues differs from a "National Conservatism" perspective in such a way that I don't think these issues can be handled so simply. Guess I'll just post my idea for solving an issue vs. the way I'd "think" a national conservatism approach would lead to

>Police state: Obesity and child protective services
The thing is, they'd still have to at least take the child to weigh them, measure their height, and so on. They could theoretically do this with a portable digital scale 'n' measuring tape, but they might still ask to enter the home to do so. Not to mention, in a court fight there'd be the question as to what caused a child's obesity, which could be dragged on depending on a school's cafeteria conditions and so on.

>Welfare, abolition or otherwise
I don't think Welfare needs to be abolished but reformatted. A more concerned effort needs to be made to train those who are unemployed to have the skills necessary to enter the work force, rather than just simply provide them checks of money and depend on them finding work with the available skill set they have. Single parents that are struggling are a big exception obviously, but then there's even many more questions regarding the handling of those with many kids, especially those that just keep having children to increase the amount of welfare they receive.
A lot of some more diehard conservatives that might entangle themselves in something like a national conservative movement might seek to remove welfare entirely, for a number reasons including seeing it as something that made America weak and in debt, and so forth. The fact is, in this day and age you need to become more skilled in labor to make more money, and a more ideal welfare program is to train you in such a way you can function in that job market. "Teach a man to fish" and so forth.

>Where do we take our end of the war in the middle east?
I'm not entirely sure, in terms of both personal opinion and how a national conservativism approach would take it. I'd think it would be ideal to maintain outposts to watch for Arab Spring nations that end up falling under militant rule, and so forth. Conservative approach might attempt to influence militants like historical approach in order to de-stabilize major organizations like OPEC, but I'm not entirely sure.

>Do we give tax breaks to all religious institutions or just Christian institutions
Lot of conservative groups tend to focus mostly on Christian institutions moreso than religious institutions in general. Personally? I think any sort of institution that does charity work should be entitled to tax breaks, religious or no. In other words, for the churches, temples, mosques, and so on that actually do work for the community and provide a function, those will receive tax breaks to ensure they'll have as much resources to do so. Otherwise, there's no real reason to allow them such.

>Eminent domain
Eminent domain allows a state/government to claim private property in the name of a development; doing so for non-essential use is illegal, but it's still done unless there's a lot of public attention against it (this part has always been my main complaint towards Keystone XL; we'll obviously need to fall back on it, but we need to construct the development in such a way we're not damaging other people's property or even outright stealing from the people for profit). How would a national conservatism approach this? Abolish it? Keep it? From the way supporters of the Keystone Pipeline haven't been making much effort to ensure private property owners are protected against eminent domain, it seems that this would not only be kept, but used in full force, which is shocking for anyone opposing the Federal/corrupt government in general.
User avatar #80557 - lulzformalaysiaair (03/17/2015) [-]
So it seems that we have entangled ourselves into what National Conservatism would be like and what I would like the government to be. I personally hate playing word games so for now on I will be talking about my preferred government which just so happens to be conservative and nationalistic in nature, I understand that this is kind of an oxymoron when talking about fiscal policy but for that I would take a more free market approach. In today's society you just can't have a globalist economy and thrive

>>Police state: Obesity and child protective services
Good points were made and honestly it's not a big deal in my mind if it wasn't for the fact that SO many people in America are obese and overweight. Now I understand people get overweight 40's+ but there is no excuse for obesity especially in god damn children (unless rare conditions of course). So how can a government help decrease this without intervening in the market too much?

>and a more ideal welfare program is to train you in such a way you can function in that job market. "Teach a man to fish" and so forth.
Easy words but how would you actually do that?

>>Where do we take our end of the war in the middle east?
Agree, America should stay world police

>>Do we give tax breaks to all religious institutions or just Christian institutions
Agree, all charity work gets tax breaks (assholes will find loopholes in this but in lulzutopia loopholes will do not exist, lets imagine it that way)

>>Eminent domain
I guess there should be a good enough compensation in order. Or a "we will pay you if you let us build here" type of thing. Hard question.

I've never heard of a polar bear game. So, that's attacking a lone white person?

User avatar #80482 - marinepenguin (03/16/2015) [-]
I've never personally seen one, but I love in an area with very few blacks. Although St. Louis is only an hour away.

Basically there are a couple variations of the game, but the core remains the same. Harm white people. One variation includes "the knockout game", you run up to an unsuspecting white person and try to KO them in one hit. I've seen videos of it happening to old women and man, pregnant women, and even children. They don't discriminate in age, sex, or condition.

The more common game is to find a white person who is preferably alone and unarmed, gang up on them, and ultimately jump them. They are by definition, hate crimes, yet they're never labeled as such. Usually just assault, if they're caught.

I personally would never subjugate myself to a long distance relationship, UNLESS I physically have been with the person, and get to see them every now and then.

We're by no means encouraging you to halt your attempts, we can only make suggestions - whether or not you take them to heart is up to you. However, I tend to look at things from a more logical perspective, without the advent of sounding like some edgy teenager, I am not that emotionally responsive - so as to why you put yourself in these situations is beyond me. But by all means, if you feel like it is the right thing, do it.

I better not see you on here later preaching the whole "woe is me." I know it's hard, but learn to be content with your life in times like that. Take the, "not giving a fuck," road if things don't work out. That's my advice, no need to sink into a depressive state. People waste all their time remembering the bad times, (well because that's just how our brain works, because they're perceived to be more painful, almost sickening,) but if things do go south - just remember the good times and move on.

I'll tell you like I told drumandbass, if this shit doesn't work out, and I hope and pray to God that it does, but if it doesn't, then I'll do what I've normally done: Not feel anything for the first few months, let it hit me like a sledgehammer, then grab some glue, and piece myself back together, and keep on truckin'. I just have to take the risk, for what might've been's sake.
User avatar #54 - thatoneiranianguy (03/15/2015) [-]
Well, I certainly think you're insane for doing so, but good luck. Amazon has some fairly good prices on bulk epoxy glue that you might want to consider ordering ahead of time.

The latter is a lazy joke, take it for what it is.

And if I lack the emotional ability to fix myself by myself, I'll go where I always go, and where a lot of people who fall under the mantle that I do go, the vidya. Games have always been a sort of meditation for me, they let me get lost in my own thoughts, and let my heart fix them while my brain is distracted, and then when I finish the session, I can normally take a deep breath, say "alright then", and move on. I've always been able to rebound, I'm not gonna lay in the corner and let the ref count me out, yet.

User avatar #55 - tenaciouslee (03/15/2015) [-]
The reason I don't feel anything about the matter at first is because I block it out, completely, and then, over time, I deal with it, piece by piece. When the above story happened, when she told me we were done, I felt nothing, she had said it before, in fits of rage, and I would be sad, but maybe I'd heard it too many times. I think she was right, in further reflection. The relationship was a facade. There was nothing there. But, fuck her.
#59 - drumandbass (03/15/2015) [-]
well, better, still fuck your image, fuck yourself, nobody cares, the moment you feel like shit let it out instantly, go to a friend, blimp or hooker -> prevents many, many problem.

I catch your drift though. If you feel like discussing it, I've spent mannny many hours talking with different people about these sorts of things/decisions, so I really don't mind talking about it at all. For whatever reason people seem to like talking to me about that stuff. Of course if you don't feel like talking about it, you don't have to.
User avatar #316 to #315 - marinepenguin (03/23/2015) [-]
It's just a ton of different factors really.

I'm leaving for basic training this summer, and I have no plans on marrying her. And once I get back I'll be moving closer to my future college and getting a job there, away from my hometown where she also lives, and I don't want to move in with her.

And on top of that, a girl I've known, liked, and cared for since I was a freshman in high school has recently become single and has shown a lot of interest in me.

And included in all that, hanging out with my gf, and doing really any activity with her feels like a huge chore and I never look forward to it. She's my first serious relationship, and she's convinced we're going to get married. In her eyes everything is perfect and nothing is wrong, so me breaking it off would utterly destroy her.

I already know what I want, and what I should do, but actually doing it is hard. Especially after yesterday was our two year anniversary.

Understandable, it's all good.
User avatar #317 to #316 - studbeefpile (03/23/2015) [-]
That is rough dude. Very rough indeed.

There are a couple things you have to consider.

1. Love is more choice, than emotion. Ask any married couple - there will be times when you don't 'feel' like loving your SO, but you do anyway, because you're committed to them.

So look at the facts of your overall relationship. Does she give you something valuable, and you're just overlooking it at the moment?

2. If she doesn't give you anything, and you really don't have any intention to marry her whatsoever, you absolutely need to cut the relationship off as soon as possible for her sake. If you don't plan on going anywhere, ultimately it's going to end up hurting her down the road faaaar more than if you just break up with her now.

Of course it'll be difficult, but there are good ways to do it. Take your time, and be careful with your wording. If she understands where you're coming from, then that's good, and perhaps you guys can still be decent friends. If she loses it, it's a good thing you got out anyway.

Ultimately this is in your hands, but the worst thing you could do is not do anything about the situation at all. The longer it goes on, the worse it'll be when it ends.
User avatar #319 to #317 - marinepenguin (03/23/2015) [-]
I love her in the idea that I really care for her and want the best for her, but I don't love her in the way that I'd spend my life with her.

She doesn't really give me anything, companionship sure, but I've gotten her a job, a car, got her to go to college, without me she'd be way worse off. So for that she really appreciates me. but I don't get anything from her that I couldn't get from any other girl while having more freedom for myself.

This other girl that just entered the picture only makes things worse. My parents and all our friends have constantly told me that they think both of us will end up together in the end, and when we're both at work we talk almost nonstop. And now that she left her extremely constricting boyfriend she's started flirting as well. Now I would never stoop so low as to make something of this while with my girlfriend, but the temptation is there and I don't think that's much better.

Like I said, I know what needs to be done, I just find it hard to actually do it, it's like a goddamn massive bandaid I don't want to pull off.
User avatar #321 to #319 - studbeefpile (03/23/2015) [-]
You just gotta be strong and do it dude.

My advice would be to take a whole evening and just set aside time to talk about it. You don't wanna leave anything to question. The sooner the better, you know this.

Besides, if you don't act on this other chick fast, she might get taken by some other dude that's quicker to the draw.
User avatar #322 to #321 - marinepenguin (03/24/2015) [-]
Yeah that's something I really fear. I have liked her for a long time, lot of regrets with that girl. This could be my last chance with her.

User avatar #325 to #324 - studbeefpile (03/24/2015) [-]
The opposite of expression is depression. If you don't express, you get depressed. Venting is necessary.

I often have to vent as well, and you know, there's someone that's always been there for me. Through thick and thin, hot and cold. Depressed. Happy. Sad. Excited. No matter what, they've always been there for me......

That person is Deadlift Day.
User avatar #326 to #325 - marinepenguin (03/24/2015) [-]
For sure, lifting always helps when it comes to really everything. Angry? Squats. Sad? Chest. Teenage angst? Back day. The iron always listens to your problems.
User avatar #327 to #326 - studbeefpile (03/24/2015) [-]
Hahah, teenage angst.

"Nobody understands me, I'm gonna go into my gym and lift to Greenday!"

Is that your set though? For me Deadlifting will help with pretty much any emotion - although especially anger and sadness. Squats are good when I'm just amped up and wanna crush something, and bench is actually pretty chill for me. I find that I typically don't get super duper hyped for bench and that's fine. Bench is just an easy chill day for me.
User avatar #328 to #327 - marinepenguin (03/24/2015) [-]
Nah not really, I just picked random stuff.

I have a ton of volume and high rep work, so while I look forward to stuff like squats and power cleans, my workouts in general are brutal enough to where I'm too wiped to experience any sort of emotion for an hour or two.

But yeah, chest day is probably my least intense day as well.

So how much would you recommend me for calorie intake, so far I've been taking in around 3200. I wanna gain a lot of weight, but I don't wanna fat myself up. 5'11, 136 currently and I workout 6 times a week between 1:30-2hrs. I of course understand that if I actually want abs I would need to cut so I won't be seeing them for a while.
User avatar #295 to #294 - marinepenguin (01/28/2015) [-]
Have you been gaining weight recently at 3200 calories?
User avatar #296 to #295 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/28/2015) [-]
I honestly can't tell because I don't measure in equal intervals (before eating) but I've definitely been eating more then I used to and I can definitely continue. I'm sure I've gained at least 5 pounds.
User avatar #297 to #296 - marinepenguin (01/28/2015) [-]
In how long of a timeframe? If you are wanting to gain extremely lean muscle, you should expect maybe a pound or 2 a month. You can only build about .25 lbs of muscle a week at max. So if you were to gain a pound of fat for every pound of muscle, you'd be doing good.

But considering that you are 136 pounds. You may want to put on some mass in general. I'd say if you aren't gaining a ton of weight, up it to 3500 a day.
User avatar #298 to #297 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/28/2015) [-]

Yeah, my cousin went through a lot of that when he was in combat.
User avatar #280 to #279 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Really? What branch is he in?

I just recently joined the Air National Guard. My unit has a reputation for getting a lot of deployments, so chances are that I'll be in a bad situation at some in my 6 years.
User avatar #281 to #280 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
He was in the Marines. Served from 2004-2007ish. Fought in the harshest situations when **** really hit the fan in Fallujah. Also in Najaf and Baghdad. Got wounded when his hummvee was avoiding an IED. But he's doing well. No signs of PTSD, he's fully mobile and got out in one piece and maintains a great job. So we're all thankful he's doing well. I still remember flying down with my father to Parris Island when he graduated that summer. It gave me a deeper appreciation for our troops.
User avatar #282 to #281 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Well that's awesome. In the movie they are in Fallujah for quite some time. I'm glad to hear he got out in one piece physically and mentally. I haven't even gotten to basic yet, but in my student flight I've already gotten to appreciate the camaraderie and discipline.
User avatar #283 to #282 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
If only more people had that spirit. My brother's in the Navy in near the Florida border and he tells me that some people just don't give a rat's ass about following orders. Mostly urban youth, people who are overweight and cheat on the physicals and some sexual situations. Some with military wives some with women in service. It's soiling the morale. But I guess **** happens and the military will handle it.
User avatar #284 to #283 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Yeah those people irritate the hell out of me. People are in the military either because they're patriotic or they just consider it a job. It should be more then that. I decided a long time ago that I was going to get involved in the military as some point, my father was in the navy as a search and rescue and I wanted to continue the military tradition. Unfortunately the National Guard is all I can do while in college. If a large scale war broke out I know that I'd try to join the TACPs and enlist full time.
User avatar #285 to #284 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
Honestly, I considered enlisting but I was too far into college to do so. I would have done it not for myself, but for the love of my country and to rightfully earn that title of a Marine. I grew up in a small town in New Jersey, just 20 minutes away from Manhattan. A lot of people in my town went to work there and unfortunately we lost a good amount of people on 9/11. I still remember it like it was yesterday. My mom also knew people when they were kids who were taken on that day, I'm always meeting new people and eventually find out that they lost a parent, our area stopped holding ceremonies after the anniversary because it was too much for a lot of us. But I'd say 9/11 was a day that made me appreciate my family, my country and our men and women in uniform more than ever. If ever you head out to NYC I highly recommend you check out the memorial. I was just there this past summer and it was breathtaking. Got me choked up honestly.
User avatar #286 to #285 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
I'm in a small town in the Midwest so fortunately we didn't lose anyone around here. Being a small rural town with big guns and a rich history of veterans you can imagine how we all reacted after that day. We have a lot of Iraq veterans over here because of it. I was in first grade at the time, but I remember being dismissed from school and seeing everyone cry.

I'll make it a point to visit someday. I admit I don't feel like I'm doing as much as I can just being in the guard, I don't think I deserve the title of airman even. Only people who give their full time and enlist deserve that.
User avatar #287 to #286 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
I truly believe what you're doing counts. Every little contribution in the efforts of freedom matters no matter what. Your area sound so Americana with the veterans. I can't imagine what it must be like on Memorial Day and Independence Day.
User avatar #288 to #287 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Regardless I'll still give those enlisted men the respect they deserve.

And it's crazy. Barbeques, services, speeches, parades. Out of every graduating class (40-60 every year) a good 2-5 will be headed straight to basic for the air force or boot for other branches. I remember on veterans day programs when I was in grade school, our new gym that held 1100 people was standing room only. Standing ovations, 21 gun salutes and all. My father rarely went because he felt he didn't deserve the honor. He was in during the first gulf war and he knew guys that got killed, but he never fired a shot being just naval search and rescue.
User avatar #289 to #288 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
Wow. That's amazing. I have a lot of respect for anyone who proudly serves for the right cause. Your father is one of many that make this nation great.

I've always worked like a mix of powerlifting and bodybuilding. I always worked in the 5-8 rep range, so I gained strength and size at the same time. Then recently I went purely with 5 reps and focused on strength for about 6 months. Now I've been doing a lot more bodybuilding type workouts to try and get bigger and improve my base of strength.

Well if you're wanting to become a bodybuilder, I'd say you can begin a bodybuilding routine once you hit a 1.5x bodyweight bench, 2x Squat, at least a 2x deadlift, and a .75 overhead press. That's just my opinion though.

I think that civilizations commit collective suicide intentionally once they reach a certain point of sentience and awareness
User avatar #231 to #230 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
Interesting.


Now where did this come from?
User avatar #232 to #231 - cognosceteipsum (12/18/2014) [-]
I don't know what
User avatar #233 to #232 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
Upon further investigation, you were on the science board after I posted my link. So I'll assume you came from there.

But I'm curious, why do you think that civilizations would commit suicide intentionally? What would lead them to believe that that was the best course of action?
User avatar #234 to #233 - cognosceteipsum (12/18/2014) [-]
I actually actually came from religion board, went to the science board after looking through your comments

Its just that life's generally empty. We fill it with stuff but It doesn't last and we'll never really be satisfied. Just what I think. Oh and the diseases and pain and evil and stuff.. too many "and" but whatever. If someone could change my view of this sure. But that's how I believe for the moment.
User avatar #235 to #234 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
I don't really agree with that. I completely accept that life has no real purpose beyond just pure reproduction of our species, and that we have no real meaning in the world, but yet I'm still fascinated by the idea of going to space and discovering all that we possibly can. There will always be people like me who are curious and hopeful for the future, regardless of the reasons that we exist. So while many people may find that the world is bleak and terrible, others may see just the opposite.

In the end I think our natural curiosity and basic instinct to survive will overcome any feelings of hopelessness or uselessness. Just look at so many people who have been in terrible and hopeless situations, instead of just dying, they were desperate to survive and lived one day at a time. That alone proves to me that we wouldn't kill ourselves off as a species just because "life is meaningless and it sucks to be alive". Humanity will endure for as long as we don't kill ourselves off or we aren't killed off.
User avatar #236 to #235 - cognosceteipsum (12/18/2014) [-]
Like most people then I guess
User avatar #237 to #236 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
Most people give up? Or most people endure?
User avatar #239 to #238 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
Exactly. Although that's one interesting concept as to why we haven't found any intelligent life as of yet. That they kill themselves off before they can advance far enough to explore space.

In my opinion it isn't because there aren't any other species out there, it's either that

1) We simply haven't encountered any yet. The sheer distance between stars creates a barrier between us and other races.

2) We have actually been discovered by other species, but they just monitor our progress and don't attempt to interact with us physically for whatever reason.

3) We have been discovered by other species in the past, and perhaps they even met some of our ancestors (watered down version of the "ancient alien" theory), and that they monitor/ guide our species in an attempt to create another interstellar civilization

4) We are currently interacting with alien species, but our governments are hiding that fact from us from reasons that vary from "massive changes in basic human social structure" to "keeping panic at bay because we have no way of keeping these beings from killing us whenever" and everything in between.

Or even a multitude of other reasons. I think other alien species existing that are intelligent is not only likely, but inevitable. It may even be possible that once we reach the level of an interstellar civilization we could discover that there is in fact a whole society of different species existing in space, in some kind of "star wars" fashion.
User avatar #240 to #239 - cognosceteipsum (12/18/2014) [-]
I'm not sure actually. Hard to pick which one seems more appealing to me.
User avatar #241 to #240 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
I'm not saying you have to pick one to believe in, I'm saying that you should be open to all possibilities. If you believe wholeheartedly in one thing when it comes to science, you'll probably be disappointed. For me, whatever happens, happens. If we are alone in this universe, then humanity has endless potential to explore and learn (although we will most definitely remain divided for eternity). If we are not, the we will see how that goes as well.
User avatar #242 to #241 - cognosceteipsum (12/18/2014) [-]
Yah, I know. I just said. It's a scary thing to think of.
User avatar #243 to #242 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
Scary for you. Exciting and thrilling for me. The only thing that would terrify me, is if we found a race so incredibly more advanced then we are that wanted to do us harm. This world isn't a "Humanity **** Yeah" thread, if they wanted us dead, they wouldn't have trouble killing all of us with much effort to make room for themselves.

Barbell Training Guide for Beginners

Intro
Barbell training is one of the best forms of exercise out there. It’ll make you big, strong, fast, explosive, and make you look pretty damn good. This comes at the cost of discipline in what you eat, what you do, and hard work at the gym. Barbell training almost always centers around big compound movements, with most emphasis usually placed on the 3 “big lifts” like the Squat, Bench, and Deadlift. Other notable movements include the pull up, overhead press, rows, weighted lunges and front squat, but most programs put a large amount of focus on the big 3.

Basics
Now if you don’t know how to bench, squat, deadlift, or really do any of the movements that I mentioned before (which most of you probably don’t), I would highly recommend that you find someone who does and have them teach you. Some of these lifts can be highly technical and take some technique to learn, and the better your form from the start, the better and more easily you will progress. If you can’t find someone to help you in person, look up how to videos on YouTube and try your best to replicate them. Spend a few weeks simply getting down the movement and teaching yourself proper form. Then we can really get to the fun par, adding weight.

Now as a beginner your body has a remarkable ability to recover from stress, this allows you to get stronger and better at moving more weight every single workout. This means that you should go up by 5 pounds on bench, and 10 pounds on squat and deadlifts, every single time you set foot in the gym at first. If you fail and you can’t get that weight that specific workout, keep the weight the same and try again the next workout, don’t go up in weight until you can finish the previous amount.

Diet

Now depending on your goals, your diet will vary extremely. Losing and gaining weight all depends on your caloric intake, if you eat more calories then your body needs to maintain itself you will gain weight, the opposite occurs if you eat fewer calories than your body needs.

Gaining weight
To gain weight all you need to do is find out how many calories your body needs to maintain itself, then eat 500-800 calories more, while eating close to your lean body mass weight in grams of protein (For instance, if you weigh 180lbs, but you're carrying 10-15lbs of fat, then you'll only need to eat about 150 grams of protein a day). Ideally, you'd eat mostly clean foods, but it isn't completely necessary. You'll just feel a little bit better. Clean foods are not processed, not fast food, not junk. If you have to wonder to yourself “is this good for me?" It probably isn’t. Although when it comes to gaining weight, you have a bit more leniency than if you were losing weight. You can eat some fast food every few days to help get in more calories and protein, you can eat some "bad" calorie dense foods on occasion for the same reason. Now note that I say on occasion, or every few days, I don’t mean that McDoubles should be your main source of calories every other day.

User avatar #224 to #221 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Now the reason that you only want to eat a certain amount of calories above maintenance level is becuase your body can only gain .25-.5 pounds of muscle mass per week at a maximum on average. Once your body's capacity to build muscle has been exceeded, you will start to pile on the fat. That being said, there are some people who are known as “hard gainers” these people have naturally super quick metabolisms and have a resistance to gaining mass even when eating at a caloric surplus, these people have also been known as ectomorphs traditionally. One way to get past this is to literally force your body to grow by eating even more food. If you find that after eating at a caloric surplus of 500-800 calories a day you only gain about a pound a month, start upping your calories, try to eat up to 3500 or even 4000 calories a day to force your body to build muscle and gain mass.

User avatar #223 to #222 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Losing Weight
Losing weight is a bit more complicated, you find your maintenance level and then you eat about 400 below that, and you can add in some low level activity like walking to burn more calories, while weightlifting to put more metabolic stress on large parts of your body, raising your metabolism. This will cause you to shed nearly pure fat while holding onto your muscle, and you may even be able to gain small amounts of muscle. You generally shouldn't eat below a 600 calorie deficit, especially with exercise. Doing that can cause your body to go into a starvation mode and accumulate metabolic damage, which makes your body resistant to fat loss and can kill muscle gains. Basically your body thinks it won’t be getting food, so it tries to force itself to sustain it’s current weight by dropping it’s metabolism to nearly zero. Many people force themselves into having this affliction, then give up after seeing few results and begin to eat regularly again. This causes them to gain even more fat and thus the cycle will continue when they try to lose weight again. Do things right, take things slow.

It's been awhile since I've changed the paper up. What did you revise?
User avatar #227 to #226 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Mostly stuff about weight loss and weight gain, since I have first hand experience with weight loss (lost 50lbs a couple years ago, was fat **** ).

For instance, previously it said you should NEVER EVER go below a 400 calorie deficit, because it'll cause you to go into starvation mode. That's simply not true. You have to be eating a really really small amount of food for that to happen.

I also changed the protein intake portion. You don't need to eat exactly your body weight in grams of protein. You don't need to be eating extra protein for fat that you have. I weigh 210 right now, and I only eat 170 to 180 grams per day, and I have no problem gaining strength and size.

I also modified the part on clean eating. The truth of the matter is that Calories in vs Calories out is all there is to it. Clean eating just isn't completely necessary for everyone.

Other than that, I just fixed a couple grammatical errors.
User avatar #228 to #227 - marinepenguin (12/15/2014) [-]
When you are incredibly fat you can easily go below that because your body knows that it has plenty of left over energy stores. As your stores get lower, your body begins to lower your metabolism as it tries to stall weight loss. This can lead to people exercising harder to try and make up for less fat loss, and cause even more metabolic damage. Then you can further spiral down by eating even less and exercising even more, causing your metabolism to plummet and you to become lethargic.

I've seen a lot of people I know do this, and it only takes about a month to start becoming lethargic and sick feeling. I should have worded it differently, but I'm trying to keep people from entering this downward spiral. A 400 calories deficit with exercise can make you lose 5 pounds a month at the very least, that's 60 pounds in a year. Can you make a larger deficit and see progress? Yeah of course. Do you need to? Not at all.


That's fairly true, honestly I've read all kinds of things about it, like how we only need .5 g of protein for every pound all the way up to 2g per pound for maximum results. So I try to stay at least up to my poundage in lean mass in protein, but it's good to get people used to eating at LEAST 150 grams of protein a day. Once again, my wording could be better.

And true, but I'm a firm believer that not all calories are created equal. You can lose weight while eating McDonalds every day, but you won't feel nearly as good as if you ate home cooked meals that were full of veggies, fruits, and lean meats. That's just for losing weight though. For gaining mass you don't have to super clean, I have fast food every 2 to 3 days to help keep my calories up.

But thanks for the help man. I'll change some stuff up on my main copy that I have and write a little bit more. I'll try to keep everyone updated on current copies and whatnot.
User avatar #229 to #228 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
That 50lbs was lost in 5 months, by the way.

I used to think the same thing about calories being different, but I've found with both experience, and other sources like this - www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4eaJe_lKsU&list=UUNqbcf-5nORpyfzrqQNLSVw - that calories really are calories. Of course it's not always ideal, but it isn't supremely important.

Anyway, let me know if you need anything else on it.

I'm an idiot, I hurt my back from deadlifting yesterday. Hurts to bend around everywhere, I think I had good form but I might have done more reps for the weight I had then I should have...
User avatar #193 to #192 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
What did you do? And where does it hurt?
User avatar #194 to #193 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
After I finished my 5th set in a couple of seconds I noticed the middle-upper left part of my back hurts when I bend myself in certain ways. It's actually I think gotten better since yesterday.
User avatar #196 to #194 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
My upper back hurt like that when I deadlifted heavy for 5x5 every week for several weeks. Deadlift every other back day for 3x5 and you'll be fine.
User avatar #197 to #196 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
Yeah but deadlift was my main movement for back/bi day. I kinda would need another one and honestly power grips and snatch pulls look complicated (and I obviously can't do band pullaparts).

Do barbell rows.
User avatar #199 to #198 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
I do, the problem with these rows is that i literally don't feel my back effected and I try to do proper form next to a mirror. I feel my bicep more then anything. I feel stupid.
User avatar #200 to #199 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
Shoulders may not be back. Tuck your shoulder back, like your trying to push the middle of your back forward. If I saw you in person I could help. Basically if you aren't using your back properly, and letting your arms hang too much, your biceps will take over.
User avatar #201 to #200 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
I try to keep my back straight like your supposed too and not move my shoulder, it's what I mainly focus on. I think I might try the snatch pull and power clean stuff. I probably asked this before but anything else you could think of for back except those 4?
User avatar #202 to #201 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
Barbell rows are really effective, so I doubt you are doing them correctly.

As for other movements, you could try dumbbell rows, landmine rows, and there's a couple otthers where their names are escaping me right now.
User avatar #203 to #202 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
ohh **** wait, I thought we were talking about dumbbell rows.Those are the pain in the ass ones.
www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/exerciseImages/sequences/20/Male/m/20_2.jpg
Are you talking about the leaning barbell row? I used to do those, they were effective (not as much as deadlift though) to a degree. I guess I'll continue.
User avatar #204 to #203 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
Barbell rows are way better. Keep progressing at them. Add 5 pounds every week like you would one of the big lifts. Build ya some huge lats. I just haven't done them as much because they irritate my lower back.
User avatar #205 to #204 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
I always get a slight sting in my lower back as I straighten up after the last rep.
User avatar #195 to #194 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
Oh that's not bad. You shouldn't do 5 sets of deadlifts, 3 sets of 5 heavy deads is plenty.
User avatar #190 to #189 - marinepenguin (11/12/2014) [-]
I'm carrhawks7 apparently, sorry. And I found like 3 people, sent it to all 3 cause I didn't know which one.
