while looking through youtube. I was a bit late on this but came across this video.
Such deep meanings. Racism in america, violence, gun control and etc.

ya it's good.

biggest thing for me is the "profitability of violence" in the US, that music video touches on that throughout.

I mean I grew up in it.. some of the music/movies I post are violent as fu*k. My life could be very different if I had grown up with bad/neglectful parenting, grew up in a worse area, etc. It's just too easy for people (young boys/men especially) in this country to become consumed by violence. This country is basically training it in to people. I speak mostly of "this country" (USA) because I grew up in it, you can't escape it.

On the idea of parenting. I did a small experiment with my 2nd dog (James, the beefy silky). I didn't hit him at all, ie for when he did something bad like poop on the floor etc. My mom & I gave Gizmo (the thin/smaller silky) little spanks for stuff like that - so we hit him. Gizmo snaps on other dogs. I had to stop bringing him to the park because he doesn't back down, if a dog messes with him he'll fight hard. Gizmo flinches when you raise your hand on him sometimes. James is a big wimp, happy af, cuddly, submissive if some other dog messes with him. If you hit him now for something he did wrong, he wags his tail, he doesn't even understand it. He doesn't even know it's some form of punishment - i've actually done it a few times to see what he'd do and he has no clue what i'm doing, thinks it's a playful hit. He doesn't flinch when you raise your hand. He does however, snap at Gizmo sometimes because, Gizmo actually taught him how to be violent. Gizmo attacked him many times when he was a young pup. So, my experiment failed somewhat because the dog I spanked (unknowingly a problem to me initially), eventually taught the dog I tried to keep away from violence - how to be violent. :ninja:

So I guess what i'm trying to say is, even with good parents, American society itself can be a very bad parent/influence. With bad parents, one can find themselves in a world of trouble, and have absolutely no idea about the "forces infecting them".

peace!

Soreness: quads, hamstring
BW: 7st  :o lol scale is messed up

Condition: It was windy, but very humid inside the gym. Not a lot of room available but managed to get the work done as I wanted. Also am fasting today but I doubt my weight would go down by 2.5 - 3 stones.

"windy" inside the gym sounds like a good problem .. not so much humidity though hah. Gym with nice air flow ftw.

Troy Apke 4.35 @ NFL Combine. The commentators were stunned LOL!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qg00y0H9lok" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qg00y0H9lok</a>

"stunning" regardless of skin color (which Sanders was getting at). dude is flying at that weight. really impressive.. but, track dude. :ibrunning:

the "white man can't jump" thing is dead.. the "white men can't sprint" thing is getting "deader" :D

And Asian people not even being brought up is the deadest thing yet. :p
lol

hah.

ya and plenty of fast af asians from 100m up. just a cultural thing imho. I imagine (talking out of my ass) Asian parents don't allow their children to play American style football, at a much higher percentage. I don't think i've ever seen an Asian kid playing/practicing it out at the local parks. I see plenty playing basketball & tennis etc. Smart move not playing football.. it's a beautiful sport, but just so deadly (same w/ boxing etc).

I'm not registered for American Football yet but the team I'm going to play for had a win today in the 2nd game of the season. They are currently 2-0. https://www.facebook.com/sdgc.oilers/

I'm not registered because I haven't paid the fees- it's different to rugby /rugby league where my fees and travel expenses were covered by the club.

whoa.  :wowthatwasnutswtf:

It's cool seeing you respect the sport too (for so long). So many rugby fans i've seen, hate american football etc, which is annoying to me, both sports are incredible. Most American Football fans don't even know what rugby is I imagine, lmao. I'm sure they'd like it though. Americans love contact sports.

Interested to see what your thoughts would be after playing it in a league like that (if you do).

I imagine you'd be a good offensive weapon (WR maybe?) :D :ibrunning: Also good on defense in something like safety etc. There's alot to learn in the sport though, probably easier to come in on an offensive role. Defense is crazy complex.

Kipchoge & Kipsang are really refreshing "athletes". Always look so damn happy, especially Wilson Kipsang. They approach competition & training with alot of "joy & happiness" it seems.
