Doing an Overhead Press

A.k.a Strict Press, Shoulder Press, Military Press.


Look forward; head neutral. Grip the bar so that forearms are vertical and the bar is about clavicle level. Hands are not supposed to touch shoulders. Wrists in-linr with forearms and elbows in front of the barbell. You should squeeze glutes to avoid arching your back. Wearing weight heavy shoes in heels gives you better stability. Stand your feet hip-shoulder-width apart. Chest up and expanded and bar gripped in the base of the palms, directly over the forearms.


When you press the bar, press it straight up, and tuck chin back and press bar straight up and overhead to full extension, then return head to neutral and bring torso forward once bar clears the face.

When lifting lock your elbows out. Squeeze shoulder blades while extending arms overhead until full extension is reached. Keep upper back, glutes, and abs tight to not lose control over the bar. Straight line going from the bar, down through your shoulder blades, and through middle of feet. Drive through heels while pressing.

Two Reactions to Sweet Yummy Stuff

Lunch is over and you feel full. At the sight of dessert, 'hedonic' eaters say, no thanks. But 'homeostatic' eaters don't listen to the body's built-in chemical that is secreted when over 3 lbs of food are eaten in one sitting. They're more likely to be obese.

'the homeostatic system'

Seeing, smelling and even hearing the word 'cake' activates chemicals in the brain involved in shame, depression, and repression, triggering the release of epinepherine, the brain's "food" chemical.

Brain scans show that obese people have reactions to food similar to reactions experienced by sexual deviants.

'the hedonic system'

When food reaches the stomach, electrical signals from the brain speed up digestion and trigger the brain to eat more. Seeing cake becomes more appealing.

The hormone dopamine tells the brain to stop eating, but in obese people, the brain is unable to accept the chemical receptor.

Treating A Snakebite


  1. Remain calm, but act swiftly, and chances of survival are good. (Less than one percent of properly treated snakebites are fatal. Without treatment, the fatality rate is 10-15 percent.
  2. Immobilize the affected part in a position below the level of the heart.
  3. Place a lightly constricting band 5 to 10 centimeters (2 to 4 inches) closer to the heart than the site of the bite. Reapply the constricting band ahead of the swelling if it moves up the arm or leg. The constricting should be placed tightly enough to halt the flow of blood in the surface vessels, but not so tight as to stop the pulse.
  4. Do not attempt to cut open the bite or suck out venom.
  5. Seek medical help. If possible, the snake's head with 5 to 10 centimeters (2 to 4 inches) of it's body attached should be taken to the medics for identification insures use of the proper antivenom.

Never Give Up On Becoming An Entrepreneur

Say you are 30 now. Then you got about 60 years. Let's say it takes 3 months to do a big project
That's 60 x 12months divided by 3 equals 240 shots at success.

As long as you are alive anything is still possible.

Michael Jordan missed over 300 important shots.
99.99% of success took time.

You are stronger than you think.

Stuck in the weeds?
"Try lots of different things." - Paul Graham

Fake success before it is real.

Careful. This can demolish you. Don't compare yourself  to people who already succeeded. They have their own story. You don't really know that story.

Right before success you will face the worst.

Achievements In Games: Good or Bad

The first game I can remember that had so called "achievements" was World of Warcraft. Though I think they definitely weren't the first to have that system. Nowadays most of the games have incorporated the achievements if not all. Certainly seeing a flashy notice that you just have been awarded by points makes you feel good, but what did you actually accomplish, should you even call that an achievement in the first place?

Example from World of Warcraft. These achievements just undermine the word achievement. Seeing as it is easy as hell to do all these things why even great an achievement for such a deed. 

Another example from Team Fortress 2. Just random achievements and the only reason to do these is to get more points and you gain nothing in return. Waste of time.

The biggest flaw is that they incorporate all easily doable things as achievements, when there only should be the truly hard to do achievements that require skill and determination. Certainly luck is a factor as well but you shouldn't make an achievement because you got an item that had a drop rate 1%. 

I like to play games, there are not many who don't. When I was young, I could play a game and finish it and with it comes a certain emotion of satisfaction. Now with all the games that have achievements in them and when I reach in the end it looks that I didn't get all of the achievements done and then there are also difficulty levels like advanced and hardcore is locked. The difficulty settings is one thing I don't like about newer games. When I finish a game on easy and some of my friends did it on hard. Now you wished you did it on hard. 

With all these achievements you really can't even finish a game properly because you know you didn't kill that one boss with fists only or didn't do it on hard difficulty.

How to Properly Walk on Ice

1. Normally, when we walk, our legs ability to support our weight is split mid-stride.

2. Walking this way on ice forces each leg to support the weight of the body at an angle that is not perpendicular to the surface of the ice, resulting in a nasty fall.

Fact: On Aprill 8, 2003, Dr. Robert Atkins, Investor of the famed Atkins Diet, slipped on icy pavement and suffered severe head trauma. He died nine days later.

Fact: Approximately 60 people die each year in the United States as a result of slipping on the ice, This is about as many as will die from a tornado.

Making an Ice Rink

If public skating rinks don't quite make the grade, here's how to make your own.


1. Mark the boundaries of the future ice rink.
2. Make the surface level.
3. Cover the surface level with sand at least 5cm thick if you have any.
4. Put a layer of snow on top (at least 8-10 cm thick), firm it and flatten it out. Form a 7-10 cm high border out of snow around the ice rink.
5. Put up a plywood or net fence around the rink.


1. Fill the rink with water when the weather is clear and the air temperature is below -5C.
2. Hold th water hose upwards so that the flow has the shape of a hand fan. This will help make the surface even, recommended angle 35-45.
3. Begin adding water at the far end of the rink and slowly move backwards. Try not to leave any empty spaces.
4. Repeat two or three times every three or four hours.
5. For the final round, use warm water.
6. The ice layer should be at least 12-15 cm.


Clear the surface and fill cracks with melting snow before each round of filling.

Provide benches people can use to put on their skates or take a breather.

Use cold water to fill in the grooves and gouges left by skates. Use hot water to smooth the ice.

Miscellaneous Hacks

If you are opening a gate with a remote, and you are a bit out of range, put it under your chin pointing upward. Your skull is a close enough approximation to a parabolic reflector to direct some extra energy forward giving you extra distance.

Measure your hand from your fingertips to palm and memorize it. Now you can judge the size of anything without a ruler. Try to pick a finger that is pretty close to a standard length (1inch). You will never need a ruler to estimate again.

To piss off an annoying customer behind you in line at a checkout, hold down all the 4 corner buttons on the credit card machine to reboot it. It will take a while to restart

To go directly to your floor on an elevator, even if other floor numbers have been pressed, simply press the desired floor and the door close button at the same time, you will go directly to that floor.

If your lock is frozen, use instant hand sanitizer on it. With it's heavy alcohol content , it can break down ice. Squirt some in a resistant lock and get out of the cold.

If you point a TV/DVD remote at a cellphone camera and press any button, you can see the infrared light. This trick will also let you see if IR security cameras are on in the dark.

9volt batteries contain six AAAA sized cells that can be used in electronics that take AAA batteries. Small sized 12volt batteries contain eight 1,5volt button cell batteries , which retail for $3-$5 each.

Distinguishing Natural Honey From Fake



1. Honey aroma (exceptions: honey with rose tea)
2. Causes a mild burning sensation in the throat
3. Does not separate into layers
4. Has natural impurities (pollen, bee bread, microparticles of wax, propolis)
5. Has a soft texture (thin, filament-like trickle)
6. Quite thick, trickles in a thin stream
7. No foam.


1. Sour smell or no smell
2. Does not cause
3. Separates into layers
4. No impurities
5. Has a rough texture (forms clumps)
6. Runny (drips, immediately spreads along the surface)
7. Has foam

In order to boost profits, some producers dilute honey with sugar syrup and molasses. To increase thickness they add flour, starch, chalk, sand and even sawdust.

-Hold  a lighted match to the honey. If it is natural honey it will melt and not begin to hiss straight away.
-Mix the honey in water. Natural honey will not dissolve. If you add 2-3 drops of iodine to the solution it will not turn blue.
-Put some honey onto a piece of paper. If a damp patch spreads around it then it is diluted.
-Dip a piece of stale bread into the honey. After 8-10 minutes it should still be firm and not soften.
-Mix some water into the honey and add 2-3 drops of vinegar essence. If the solution becomes foamy it is adulterated honey.
-Heat a stainless steel piece of wire and insert it into the honey. A good product will stick to the metal and not flow back into the jar.

The Cuff Code

Cuffed denim is as old as the blue jean itself. And every couple of decades, a new proportion or trend emerges. In the '50s and '60s, the style was carefree single cuff but by the '80s and '90s, it was atrim, tight roll. Today's cuffs are croping up in every style. From the disheveled fold to the crisp cuff, how you roll says a lot about you.

What it says: You like things simple and sophisticated. Or you want to show you sprung for the selvedge denim.
How to do it: Simply turn up the hem. The width can vary from a quarter-inch to over two inches.

What it says: You're easy and a tad rugged. Or you couldn't be bothered to have your jeans hemmed.
How to do it: Fold your hem up and over twice. Run your fingers around the cuff to ensure a crisp crease.

What it says: You prefer a tailored, traditional look. Or you feel it's the only style that pairs well with narrow jeans.
How to do it: Same as the wide, but the cuff should only be between an inch and an inch and a half tall.

What it says: You're modern and a tad preppy. Or you like drawing attention to your ankles.
How to do it: Make a double (or tripple) cuff about an inch and a half wide, then squish it down slightly to muss it up. Make sure it's uniquely disheveled. Some of the cuff should tuck into itself

Fun Fact: Elvis Presley knew his way around  a trim cuff.
