Place Your Values Above All Else...


#1

Thoughts? On one hand he makes a great point, but damn if his delivery and reasoning aren't shit.

hmmm,

one of those should work

White square of death.

No way I’m clicking on a Vin Diesel clip. That guy sounds like an idiot.

When he was going off about doing what you want to do and not what you have to do, it made me think of a quote I took from a Dave Tate article years ago. It probably wasn’t exactly the point he was going for and I may be spitting semantics but I think it’s relevant, especially when he’s talking about training and strength.

The difference between a successful athlete and a crappy one is they always do the things they have to do, not what they want to do. – Dave Tate

Place your values above all else?

I’m pretty sure that’s what the guys who pulled off 9/11 did.

Well, they were succesful, were they not?

Yeah, because that is going to work.

They had a goal, they achieved it.

YOU were not supposed to like it, in fact, you were very much supposed not to like it.

Think about that what you want, but by their own yardstick ------> SUCCESS!!!

I do agree with you, however they died, in the end they did not succeed. Living/surviving should be everyone’s ultimate goal/value :wink:

No, THAT was part of that goal. You know… the virgins in the afterlife and all that crap?

Female virgins?

I read somewhere that that part of the Koarn was misinterpreted and that they get milk, honey and 72 sheep or something, but not virgins.

I’m not kidding, I’ll google later, but it did always strike me as odd that a book like that would talk about how much pussy you’ll get in Heaven.


#13

haha they will be pretty pissed when they get there LOL

Grapes.

If anything it was white grapes.

No idea why 72 though.

“Hi, we’re playing Magic: The Gathering, wanna join?”

“Osamaaaaaaa!!!”

Yeah, it’d be cute if when Islamic terrorists die they got to a place filled with virgins and they appear at ComicCon.
