These aren’t lifting related at all.
1). Do other people check out people as much as I do?
I don’t mean in a creepy way (yes I do), but like when I see a guy, I immediately check out his calves. Bigger than mine? Yes, 95% of the time. Dang. OK, well what’s the situation with the glutes? Pancake ass or some solid glutes? Hm, looks like somewhere in the middle. Maybe he just squats like once a week and does little hamstring work. OK well what about his arms? Similar to calves, my arms are small, but if I bend my elbows and cock my wrist a certain way, I can make my forearms look decent. Oh shoot, his look bigger than mine when held limp at his side? No problem, I’m probably much more fun to hang out with, I think as I walk away defeated.
Same with girls too - I don’t even check them out like “Damn look at that ass” I’m just like…looking at them. I look at people’s faces, clothes, hair. I don’t know, I just like to observe people.
2). If people could tell when they’re going to die, would they do much with it? I don’t know what I’d do. On one hand, I’d think I should do as much good as I can. On the other, I’d be like fuck it, Stanlet Hudson says to drive fast and leave a sexy corpse, so that’s what I’m gonna do. And really, my drive fast would not be partying, doing coke, banging girls, and living life to the fullest. It’d be driving slow, and watching The Office with my girlfriend while I eat embarrassing amounts of crap food.
But what would I do? I know I have limited time left, and I know exactly when I’m done. But what side of me would win that debate, and how would I act? I think if the world knew, you’d get about…1/5 of people to act responsibly and did the best they could since they knew the deadline. The rest would just go about their normal lives and get less responsible as it got closer.
3). I wonder how many more times in my life will I stop lifting and eating well, get more and more out of shape, and then realize I have an event in a couple weeks and get back in the gym like any progress will be made in 15 days.
4). I wonder what all you people on T-Nation are like in real life, and how many of you I’d like. There’s a couple that I get the impression are kinda dicks, but for the most part you all seem like you’d be cool to hang out with for a while. Maybe grab dinner. I just gotta make sure to pick the guys who lift hard but still are willing to eat…not those losers who care about their health and bodyfat percentage.
