Country music is dyeing. sure techno is like 30 years old which branch out to other genre. literature like Mark Twain is only alive cause schools requires it to be read. Idt tall buildings count since Americans payed for it but Irish provided the materials and built it. Even all our holidays are based on lies and corrupt our youth.
You can go on and on, but most things aren't original and are not popular anymore. Today White American youth aren't making anything to be proud of anymore, it's a copy cat generation.
Wait, I forgot skateboards. I respect that.

Literature from individuals like Mark Twain, art from things like the Harlem Renaissance, the beginning of modern skyscrapers, music like rock-and-roll/jazz/country/techno all saw it's beginnings in America.

Guy, cultures are formed long ago from tribes and family traditions.
American youth today don't have that anymore.
American Sports are all copies from other countries
Rugby- Football
Baseball, cricket
Basketball started in Canada

Most Hit T.V and movies are played by English and Australian actors
I'm not saying it's not enjoyable, I'm saying it's not original and not from our homeland.

The original cultures, which were hunter gatherer societies, yes. New cultures form, old ones die, some are innovative and some aren't. The American culture has taken many old ideas and made them into things that are incredibly popular.

Plus Basketball was first played in Springfield, Massachusetts.

We already talked about this. The fact that everything can be used as a weapon is not an argument for giving people automatic rifles. That's as if I were to argue I should own a nuclear bomb because rocks can kill people.

It could happen sure. Remember operation Northwood? Or this for that matter.
uk.businessinsider.com/the-military-tested-bacterial-weapons-in-san-francisco-2015-7?r=US&IR=T

The goverment has suggested or even done a lot of creepy stuff already, but nobody's rising up against them. Nobody can.

What chance are a bunch of disorganised civilians armed with small arms going to do to the most powerful government in the world? Armed revolution made sense when the constitution was written. It no longer does imo.

#115062 - marinepenguin (05/04/2016) [-]
Meh that's arguing along with the slippery slope. The reality is most people can't afford much more than an automatic weapon, which those can go for thousands of dollars. Even cannons were rare in revolutionary times, and were worth small fortunes. I'm not saying people should own grenade launcher and RPGs, but they wouldn't be able to get their hands on them 99% of the time anyways.

And of course a bunch of rebelling citizens wouldn't be able to take on the US military in terms of Force on Force. Very few revolutions have ever succeeded using those tactics. A rebellion would be a guerilla war using mostly sabatoge. The US military is unbeatable in terms of conventional warfare, but a weakened US military fighting it's own people, on its own land, in a prolonged war of attrition where it has no advantages of conventional warfare wouldn't have the rebellion needing tanks, aircraft, or a navy to win.

To say that even a million US citizens rebelling against the government wouldn't be a massive drain on the US military and the nations resources and cause them to seek peace through political reform is once again, naivety.

I don't have that much trust in people. It's fine if you do, but I just don't.

There's a difference between items that CAN be used to kill and items that are made to kill.
A kitchen knife is a tool that can be used as weapon. Thats is not really an argument for giving people automatic rifles with drum magazines.

The rest of your post sounds a bit like paranoia, but if that's your opinion so be it. I just don't see how giving everyone the means to kill will stop violence.

User avatar
#115051 - marinepenguin (05/04/2016) [-]
Intention to kill or not, a knife, car, or blunt object is just as able to kill someone as a weapon is. Violent people will find ways to inflict harm on innocent people whether there are weapons available or not.

And paranoia would imply delusion influenced by fear or anxiety. I'm not fearful of government, I just recognize that there are many times in where a government has acted outside its people's interests, and in some cases directly against it. A disarmed people is a helpless people when the government is armed and using force. You may call it paranoia, but when you act as though such an event couldn't happen in modern day appears to me as naivety.

That's fine and all. I just don't trust your average Joe with a deathstick.

Besides if that really is the case why would you even need fully automatic weapons?
User avatar
#115046 - marinepenguin (05/04/2016) [-]
Depends. Country people who have respect for them, I don't mind owning at all. My entire immediate family has probably over 100 guns to our name. Mostly cattle ranchers.

And to me it isn't a matter of "needing" one. There are many deadly items that are legal that no one needs to the degree that we have them, the fact is that our 2nd amendment gives us the right to self preservation through the use of firearms, and in a free society if people decide to spend their money on stockpiling weaponry for self-defense from criminals or in the worst case scenario an abusive government entitiy , then they have that right. In the most likely of cases, would I personally have to use a fully automatic firearm, or a firearm at all, to defend myself from a criminal or the government? I would say no, but if the time ever came and I was unable to defend myself, the consequences would be far greater.

And of course a bunch of rebelling citizens wouldn't be able to take on the US military in terms of Force on Force. Very few revolutions have ever succeeded using those tactics. A rebellion would be a guerilla war using mostly sabatoge. The US military is unbeatable in terms of conventional warfare, but a weakened US military fighting it's own people, on its own land, in a prolonged war of attrition where it has no advantages of conventional warfare wouldn't have the rebellion needing tanks, aircraft, or a navy to win.

To say that even a million US citizens rebelling against the government wouldn't be a massive drain on the US military and the nations resources and cause them to seek peace through political reform is once again, naivety.

That's not culture, that's assimilation. It's not your culture if it comes from another group. I can't take a Mohawk, put some gel, turn it into waves like nobody have seen and call it my own. I took the style and changed it a little. I can't call it a JoeHawk without people saying it's a Mohawk.
I'm just saying White American culture sucks nowadays when it comes to music, movies, cloths, and sports.

How do you think culture is formed? A bunch of cultures that combine and integrate together creates an entirely new culture.

In terms of culture, America has one of the most successful in modern day. Those movies, sports, Music, clothing etc that you don't like, is enjoyed all over the world.

American culture doesn't have the age and distinctions that many European and Asian cultures have from thousands of years of isolation from one another, but it's definitely unique. Whether you personally like it or not isn't the end-all-be-all.

Guy, cultures are formed long ago from tribes and family traditions.
American youth today don't have that anymore.
American Sports are all copies from other countries
Rugby- Football
Baseball, cricket
Basketball started in Canada

Most Hit T.V and movies are played by English and Australian actors
I'm not saying it's not enjoyable, I'm saying it's not original and not from our homeland.

The original cultures, which were hunter gatherer societies, yes. New cultures form, old ones die, some are innovative and some aren't. The American culture has taken many old ideas and made them into things that are incredibly popular.

Plus Basketball was first played in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Literature from individuals like Mark Twain, art from things like the Harlem Renaissance, the beginning of modern skyscrapers, music like rock-and-roll/jazz/country/techno all saw it's beginnings in America. That's just off the top of my head, and I could name tons more if I didn't have to be up in 5 and a half hours.
User avatar
#138613 - whitechino (05/04/2016) [-]
Country music is dyeing. sure techno is like 30 years old which branch out to other genre. literature like Mark Twain is only alive cause schools requires it to be read. Idt tall buildings count since Americans payed for it but Irish provided the materials and built it. Even all our holidays are based on lies and corrupt our youth.
You can go on and on, but most things aren't original and are not popular anymore. Today White American youth aren't making anything to be proud of anymore, it's a copy cat generation.

I'm Air Force Security forces. So the equivalent of Military Police/ Base defense.

And FOID stands for Firearm Owner Identification. Basically a way for Illinois to keep track of who has guns and what guns they have. It's pretty invasive and a lot of people hate it.

The only reason I haven't is because I live in a little piece of religious conservative heaven in a rural area where we don't consider ourselves a part of places like Chicago.

In most states military members only need to show their government ID to get access to firearms, but in Illinois everyone needs a FOID card, even if you live outside of Illinois, you have to have a FOID card just to transport your weapons through the state.

Also,most people in my town blatantly disregard firearm laws, and fully automatic weapons with drum magazines are not common.

That's fine and all. I just don't trust your average Joe with a deathstick.

Besides if that really is the case why would you even need fully automatic weapons?
User avatar
#115046 - marinepenguin (05/04/2016) [-]
Depends. Country people who have respect for them, I don't mind owning at all. My entire immediate family has probably over 100 guns to our name. Mostly cattle ranchers.

And to me it isn't a matter of "needing" one. There are many deadly items that are legal that no one needs to the degree that we have them, the fact is that our 2nd amendment gives us the right to self preservation through the use of firearms, and in a free society if people decide to spend their money on stockpiling weaponry for self-defense from criminals or in the worst case scenario an abusive government entitiy , then they have that right. In the most likely of cases, would I personally have to use a fully automatic firearm, or a firearm at all, to defend myself from a criminal or the government? I would say no, but if the time ever came and I was unable to defend myself, the consequences would be far greater.
User avatar
#115047 - whoozy (05/04/2016) [-]
I don't have that much trust in people. It's fine if you do, but I just don't.

There's a difference between items that CAN be used to kill and items that are made to kill.
A kitchen knife is a tool that can be used as weapon. Thats is not really an argument for giving people automatic rifles with drum magazines.

The rest of your post sounds a bit like paranoia, but if that's your opinion so be it. I just don't see how giving everyone the means to kill will stop violence.

User avatar
#115051 - marinepenguin (05/04/2016) [-]
Intention to kill or not, a knife, car, or blunt object is just as able to kill someone as a weapon is. Violent people will find ways to inflict harm on innocent people whether there are weapons available or not.

And paranoia would imply delusion influenced by fear or anxiety. I'm not fearful of government, I just recognize that there are many times in where a government has acted outside its people's interests, and in some cases directly against it. A disarmed people is a helpless people when the government is armed and using force. You may call it paranoia, but when you act as though such an event couldn't happen in modern day appears to me as naivety.
User avatar
#115054 - whoozy (05/04/2016) [-]
We already talked about this. The fact that everything can be used as a weapon is not an argument for giving people automatic rifles. That's as if I were to argue I should own a nuclear bomb because rocks can kill people.

It could happen sure. Remember operation Northwood? Or this for that matter.

The goverment has suggested or even done a lot of creepy stuff already, but nobody's rising up against them. Nobody can.

What chance are a bunch of disorganised civilians armed with small arms going to do to the most powerful government in the world? Armed revolution made sense when the constitution was written. It no longer does imo.
User avatar
#115062 - marinepenguin (05/04/2016) [-]
Meh that's arguing along with the slippery slope. The reality is most people can't afford much more than an automatic weapon, which those can go for thousands of dollars. Even cannons were rare in revolutionary times, and were worth small fortunes. I'm not saying people should own grenade launcher and RPGs, but they wouldn't be able to get their hands on them 99% of the time anyways.

And of course a bunch of rebelling citizens wouldn't be able to take on the US military in terms of Force on Force. Very few revolutions have ever succeeded using those tactics. A rebellion would be a guerilla war using mostly sabatoge. The US military is unbeatable in terms of conventional warfare, but a weakened US military fighting it's own people, on its own land, in a prolonged war of attrition where it has no advantages of conventional warfare wouldn't have the rebellion needing tanks, aircraft, or a navy to win.

How heavy can you pull?

I only started 3 weeks ago and took it slow, im able to do pull ups for 5 with 12 kg (25lbs) and ive learnt to love them.

Im nearly halfway to what i want, being able to do 40% my body weight, 30kg (65 lbs)
#592 to #591 - marinepenguin (04/16/2016) [-]
The heaviest I pulled was 100 pounds. I was usually doing 40-50 pounds for several sets of 8-12.
#593 to #592 - the one and only ONLINE (04/17/2016) [-]
Thats still amazing, you barely see people do waited pull ups, its like 1% of the people in gyms who do it. Im aiming to hopefully do 65 lbs for 3 sets of 10 by my birthday.

If youre doing deadlift and squats on the same day do you think its better to do squats first or deadlifts?
#587 to #586 - marinepenguin (04/02/2016) [-]
Depends on what I'm emphasizing. I have a day for both, so if I'm on my squat day I'll start off with squats and then do a deadlift variation like deficit deadlifts. If its my deadlift day I'll do pause squats, or box squats or something similar to supplement my regular squat.
#588 to #587 - the one and only ONLINE (04/03/2016) [-]
Alright, i never do something as elaborate as that, i think ill just start with deadlifts to get the heaviest out of the way

How many calories should I surplus to get bulk while trying to tone at the same time?
