    You have:

    - Kanye "every human being has something of value they've brought to the table, especially Hitler" West

    - Milo "ex-gay" Yiannopoulos on his left

    - Nick "(paraphrased) We need to burn women alive like the good ol' days for them bearing false witness, worshipping minerals and being 300lbs" Fuentes on his right

    Is the American Economy Dying?

    Semi-political post. Please, forgive me :raritycry::rainbowlaugh:

    I'd post this on Twitter or Reddit, but:
    1) I don't want endless comments from insane people (cuz Reddit/Twitter :rainbowlaugh: )

    2) I'd rather blog it here as a sort of diary post for myself

    YEEEEEES!!!! MORE AWESOME GENETICS NEWS!!!!!!!

    Consider this blog a sequel to this one.

    I'm FINALLY able to do full squats and deadlifts on both legs through a relatively full range of motion, no inflammation, and very minimal pain. Meaning, I can finally get a gym membership for the first time since 2014!!!!!

    Over 8 fucking years haha.

    YES!!! Awesome Genetics News!

    Okay, how do I explain this haha?

    Raise your arm up towards the sky/ceiling. Like, actually extend it as much as you can. Is it straight? If so, then congrats, it took me over 8 years to do that :rainbowlaugh:

    Bleh, Genetics Are Winning (For Now)

    Since my Elhers-Danlos affects my shoulders most of all, upper body pressing exercises are beyond difficult to progress on. Which is saying something considering my Elhers-Danlos led to a labrum tear in each of my hips lol. Training hard works on everything except pressing, leading to hilarious strength discrepancies. My shoulders, chest and triceps might be 5x weaker than they should be

170lbs Dumbbell Rows are Easy Now · 6:22am July 19th

Felt proud so I wanted to share :twilightblush:

Did 8 sets of rows per arm with 160 lbs, and then loaded up 170 lbs on the dumbbell for the 9th and final set.

And as usual, every rep was paused at the top to make it harder. For reference, due to my Elhers Danlos, I had to start this exercise with 3 pound dumbbels!!! And my shoulder blades were so dysfunctional that I couldn't get the puny 3 lbs to touch my chest :rainbowlaugh:

And yet, just when I think I'm not totally weak, there are bigger fish out there :pinkiecrazy:

310lbs and 375lbs respectively

DEEEEEEEEEEP! YOU'RE BACK!

:yay: Good to hear you're still working towards your goals. I'm not doing so great at my goal of surviving weather conditions where there's a lack of rain and temperatures above 30°C. For context, the hottest temperature on record is around 38.5°C (I think) and it's expected to reach 42°C today. Everything in the UK is made to survive rain and snow, not the expansion of the Sahara Desert. :twilightoops:

Try doing 42 Celsius with no fan or AC like in India :rainbowlaugh:

No pools in your neighborhood you can relax in during the heat?

Thanks :rainbowdetermined2:

I'll get there one day :rainbowlaugh:

Oh, there are probably at least a few houses in my street with swimming pools. The problem is the social class divide between my family and our neighbours. My family are probably the poorest in the street and most of the high-and-mighty rich folk have trouble speaking to us politely. They're also incredibly nosy. Apparently it's their business if we have a "daisy" growing in our front garden - not a common daisy that's considered a weed, but the type that's rare and you have to go to the gardening centre to buy them. Bearing in mind they have this same uncommon daisy in their front garden... :ajbemused:

India or elsewhere?

What the hell? I'm lucky in that I never saw blatant classism like that in America. It's not your fault you don't have rich parents.

You better get a giant pool and a huge garden full of daises as revenge when you're an adult.

The dream would be if I could be rich and use my money to help those with less money. Too often millionaires spend money on things that they don't really want or need, so if I have extra money that I don't need I may as well do some good with it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

5674023
Both in India and California (it gets ridiculously hot in the summer).

5674024
I've also never experienced anything of the sort since my mom's side of the family is wealthy and my dad's is middle class.

5673762
Nope. Nopenopenopenopenope.

5674045
Go for it! I also have a similar dream.

5674053

Nope. Nopenopenopenopenope.

Yep. This is what my neighbours are like.

Deep #14 · July 21st · · ·

I'm not surprised that's your answer. Well, looks like you got a perfect reason to get rich in the future :rainbowdetermined2:

A pool and big garden would be drops in the bucket compared to your future riches, though. So you could still have them while doing good with your money :raritywink:


5674053
Are you or your parents from India by any chance? I can't think of another reason why someone would be in an Indian summer without AC lol.

5674060
Yep, both of them are. My entire family's in India minus a few cousins. We're visiting for the summer. My dad thinks that we're getting soft and "Americanized" so he's trying to toughen us up by turning off the AC lol.

5674065

My dad is the same way lol. He'll have the AC off and the fan on the lowest setting even if it's 100 degrees outside.

Which part of India? My parents are from Punjab.
