Teaser quote:
NBC Sports, the de facto owner of the Olympic Games, just doesn't include the “testosterone” sports in their coverage – unless there is a severe injury that looks very bad (good) on TV. Swimming is fine (no hairy men), all women's sports are fine (no hairy men), gymnastics, ditto (basically a children's sport), skiing is okay (hair doesn't show through lycra), and the equestrian events are just fine (horses are innocent even if hairy). What you will not see are more than one or two Weightlifters, shot-putters, hammer throwers, or discus throwers. Javelins are too pointy, as are epees and sabers, and such weapon-y things are threatening. Basically, you get to see activities you would personally enjoy on a Sunday afternoon – you know, wholesome stuff without the slightest whiff of meanness, bullying, or testosterone.

These errors of omission are quite thoroughly intentional, and are designed by the people who present the vast majority of most people's exposure to the Olympics, 99% of whom are not watching the internet feeds. The Media controls the popular culture, and control is, by definition, not accidental.

Speaking of that Lindsey Von got BTFOD tonight. She was the one who said she's boycotting the 2028 Olympics because it's being hosted in racist America. She's a white American BTW

2018-02-17 03:46:08 UTC  

She said she refuses to ski for America during the 2028 Olympics, which was funny because 2028 is the summer Olympics

@Tyler0317 I laughed hard as fuck at work when I got to the test scores part

2018-02-17 23:08:22 UTC  

@Deleted User What do you think about a 'gym motivation' (or just #motivation) channel?

2018-02-18 00:11:54 UTC  

@Deleted User what’s in it?

2018-02-18 00:16:36 UTC  

Kind of like a whitepills For working out channel?

2018-02-18 00:17:02 UTC  

Quotes, pics, inspirational books, videos

2018-02-18 00:35:19 UTC  

In theory this entire server is supposed to be gym motivation.

2018-02-18 01:19:28 UTC

This server is the reason I squeezed in a training session today between my two jobs

2018-02-19 00:54:50 UTC

2018-02-21 23:04:38 UTC  

Time for a frigid garage workout. Should have gotten a space heater back in December.

2018-02-21 23:54:40 UTC  

Nice. I've been doing those all winter.

2018-02-21 23:54:56 UTC  

I was lifting in the cold until my landlord let me use his garage haha

2018-02-22 00:14:12 UTC  

What are some good workouts that you can do at home without weights?

2018-02-22 00:18:50 UTC  

@Reinhard Wolff DOUBLE UP ON PRE WOKOUT COLD DON'T MATTA!

2018-02-22 00:36:34 UTC  

@Warren H burpees

2018-02-22 00:36:50 UTC  

I’d just do a search for calisthenics workouts

2018-02-22 00:39:27 UTC  

@Warren H#1406
-Push ups
-Crunches
-Squats
-Pull ups
-Dips

Eventually, you will need to use weights to continue making progress.

2018-02-22 00:44:36 UTC  

You can get shredded but it'd be very hard to get BIG

2018-02-22 01:30:51 UTC  

@Warren H The FFL workout will get you in amazing shape if you can make it work for you. No gym needed. (If you can, lifting is still great and you should get a membership)

2018-02-22 01:36:18 UTC  

This is for the days when I don't make it to the gym. I do workout with weights regularly. Thanks for the suggestions

2018-02-22 01:36:47 UTC  

What is the FFL? @BigBadSaxon - ID

2018-02-22 01:42:47 UTC
