    I always say I’m going to make an omelet, but I’m a bad cook and it always just ends up being scrambled eggs with veggies

    This happens to me EVERY morning!

    RIGHT?! How do you even do the flippy-do?

    Truer words have never been spoken

I want you but your price tag keeps us apart.

They were even too expensive to be my single birthday present

It’s actually last year’s and this year’s gift combined

Woah. 
And I thought my $80 Adidas Powerlifts were expensive. 

Yeah I’m crying

Not like this helps, but as an owner of a pair they really do kick serious ass.

    And here we can see the Blogger in her natural habitat.

    image

    The blogger is a shy, docile creature…

    image

    … that prefers the darkness…

    image

    … and tends to be wary of the outside world.

    image

    The Blogger rarely sleeps, and when it does, it does so in seemingly random places.image

    We have attempted to understand the dietary habits of the Blogger…

    image

    … but to no avail.

    I am so glad this is back

    I spent about a year documenting Sloane Sapan and her journey in competitive fitness. 

    Blood, sweat, tears and heavy weights. I’d love it if you’d take a look. 

    This girl made the transition from ballet to regionals competitior. I want to meet her and ask her so many questions. I feel like a lot of people are confused about my own transition from ballerina to crossfitter and now to weightlifter. So here’s an example of a successful transition…

    Just general curiosity

    reblogging for later

    Impressive work

    OKAY, THERE’S NOT UNDERSTANDING HISTORY

    AND THEN THERE’S “IGNORING HISTORY IN FAVOR OF REWRITING IT TO FIT YOUR NARROW-MINDED VIEWS”

    France couldn’t stop Hitler!

    THE GERMANS WENT AROUND THE BULK OF THE FRENCH DEFENSES IN THE MAGINOT LINE BY GOING THROUGH BELGIUM, THUS CUTTING OFF THE FRENCH MILITARY FROM THEIR SUPPLIES AND CAUSING THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT TO SEEK AN ARMISTICE AND EVENTUALLY SURRENDER TO THE FAR MORE MOBILE GERMAN ARMY. THE FRENCH MILITARY WAS MOSTLY DEFEATED BEFORE IT HAD A CHANCE TO FIGHT, AND MANY FRENCH COMMANDERS WERE READY TO HOLD OUT HAD THEY NOT BEEN INSTRUCTED TO STAND DOWN BY THEIR GOVERNMENT’S LEADERS.

    Russia had a lot of guns and they couldn’t stop Hitler without the cold!

    THE GERMAN INVASION OF RUSSIA CAUGHT THE SOVIET UNION OFF-GUARD, WITH LITTLE RESISTANCE FROM THE BLACK SEA TO THE FINNISH FRONT (AND HITLER STILL LOST NEARLY 1,000,000 SOLDIERS IN THE INITIAL OFFENSIVE). ONCE RALLIED, THE RED ARMY STOPPED THE GERMANS AT STALINGRAD, WHERE AN OFFENSIVE ACTION BY SOVIET GENERALS GEORGY ZHUKOV AND ALEKSANDR VASILEVSKY ENCIRCLED AND CRUSHED THE GERMAN 6TH ARMY, EFFECTIVELY TURNING THE TIDE OF THE WAR IN EUROPE. IF THE COLD HADN’T STOPPED THE GERMANS IN RUSSIA, THE SHEER NUMBERS OF THE RED ARMY (ARMED BY THE LEND-LEASE PROGRAM) AND THE BRILLIANCE OF ROKOSSOVSKY AND ZHUKOV WOULD HAVE DONE IT EVENTUALLY.

    BUT LET’S BACK UP FOR A SECOND

    I wish armed Jews in the ghetto could’ve stopped Hitler, but…

    THE POINT OF ARMING A POPULACE AGAINST TYRANNY IS NOT A GUARANTEE OF VICTORY. IT DOES, HOWEVER, GIVE THOSE PEOPLE A FIGHTING CHANCE, AND THE FUCKING CHOICE TO DIE ON THEIR FEET, FIGHTING FOR THEIR FREEDOM, RATHER THAN BE WALKED INTO A GAS CHAMBER LIKE LIVESTOCK. THESE MOVEMENTS (AND MANY MORE LIKE THEM) WERE RUN BY HEROES WHO RISKED EVERYTHING FOR THEIR LIVES, THEIR FAMILIES, AND THEIR COUNTRIES BY REFUSING TO SUBMIT TO THE ARMY WHOSE BOOT WAS ALREADY ON THEIR NECK:

    TELL ME, JON STEWART, IF YOU COULD, IN FACT, GO BACK IN TIME, WOULD YOU TELL ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE NOT TO BOTHER? THAT THE ALLIES WOULD EVENTUALLY COME AT SOME UNSPECIFIED POINT IN THE FUTURE AND THAT THEY MIGHT LIVE (emphasis on “might”) IF THEY JUST SUBMITTED TO THE NAZIS? WOULD YOU GO TO THE DESCENDANT OF A RESISTANCE FIGHTER, AND TELL THEM THEIR ANCESTORS DIED IN VAIN BECAUSE THEIR NATION AND THEIR PEOPLE WOULD’VE BEEN LIBERATED ANYWAY, AND THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE WAR EFFORT VIA THE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TASK OF DISRUPTING NAZI SUPPLY LINES AND FORCING THE GERMAN ARMY TO STRETCH ITSELF THIN DIDN’T MATTER?

    NO, YOU WOULDN’T, BUT BECAUSE YOU CAN SAY “I’M A COMEDIAN,” YOU SOMEHOW THINK YOU HAVE THE FUCKING RIGHT TO HANDWAVE THE DEATHS OF TENS OF THOUSANDS OF HEROES AND PATRIOTS WHO HAD THE GODDAMNED BALLS TO STAND UP TO THE NAZI WAR MACHINE, FREQUENTLY ARMED WITH LITTLE MORE THAN A SHITTY ONE-SHOT PISTOL AND A KNIFE, AS “NOT THAT IMPORTANT,” ALL FOR THE SAKE OF A “JOKE?”

    THAT IS, WITHOUT A DOUBT, THE SINGLE MOST ARROGANT, IGNORANT, DISRESPECTFUL FUCKING THING I HAVE EVER HEARD ON MY TELEVISION - AND I’VE WATCHED BILL O’REILLY’S SHOW ON FOX NEWS.

    TL;DR: FUCK. YOU.

    Signed, 

    Someone Who Actually PAID FUCKING ATTENTION IN HISTORY CLASS

    P.S.:

    Guns were kind of a big deal in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave up his firearms due to pressure from pacifist groups who convinced him it was unbecoming of someone in his position, but previously owned “an arsenal” worth of guns. Malcolm X, however, stuck to the idea of armed self-defense, for good reason. The King family also believes that the Memphis Police and federal government had a hand in his assassination, but that’s an entirely different subject.

    I love when this comes around, because many in the Jon Stewart crowd need reminders that this comedian is a fact denying, statist shmuck.

    dude, he’s a comedian.
    And you said so yourself, armament does not guarantee success. But hitler still beat the French and Russians extensively, and it still took the rest of the world years of total war to win. Had they been armed, history would not have been much different.
    Also, the dudes a comedian and the republicans are INCREDIBLY narrow minded about all kinds of topics

    But that’s objectively wrong.

    Let me explain. In 1944, on August 1st, the Warsaw Uprising began. Lasting for three months, it was the largest insurgent operation in history. The Poles, armed with guns made from scrap metal, the occasional captured German weapon, and sticks turned the city into what Heinrich Himmler called “The worst of our battles since Stalingrad.” They were promised supplies by the British and Americans- except for that the Soviets denied the use of their airfields.

    Only two drops were ever made. Afterwards, the idea was given up since the planes arrived literally running on gasoline fumes, dying on the runways. This meant the Poles were soon depending solely on captured equipment. The Soviets also sat outside the city, not doing anything. The battle ended in Warsaw’s complete destruction as a city. The Home Army could never operate again. Some of the worst war crimes of the war happened as the Penal Battalions were left to do what they wanted with the populace.

    Had the Uprising gotten those drops, most agree they would have won. What does that mean?

    Poland would have no been a communist satellite. It would hae resumed its status as a free, Capitalist republic, as was the aim of the Uprising to begin with.

    The Cold War would have gone very, very differently with a NATO-aligned Poland. 

    Don’t talk about what you don’t know about.

    I love this
