@rosso: Oh I was half-joking. The hex bar is definitely much better for deadlifting than a standard barbell. Your body's in a more asymmetrical position when using a standard barbell whereas with the hex bar, your arms by your sides and you're in a more symmetrical stance. So it's a lot safer, especially if the alternative is deadlifting with a standard barbell using the over-under grip, which risks tearing your bicep on top of the potential spinal issues. I don't deadlift nearly as often as I used to, but when I do, it's always with the hex bar because of the injury risks with conventional deadlifts.

I haven't even really been able to focus since we got the news. This feels unreal.

@paragonxxx:

Getting a raise at work.
Getting a raise at work.

It's not effective til mid-October, but that doesn't bother me any because the pay is already solid, and it's quite a significant one.

My energy levels crossed right over "adequate" and skipped straight to "too excited to be productive!"

Okay, in hindsight, I can see how, with everything lately, it seemed like a bad thing happened. My sorries, people. Everything is fine.

This is why I have a hard time saying things without overthinking. Stuff like that happens.

The new way posts work is incredible.

H.P. Lovecraft has a lot of great work to borrow from. Too bad he was insanely racist.

+100. He was such a brilliant writer, and his influence will be felt in the horror genre for another hundred years. Like you said though, he couldn't get away from his time's bigotry :/

Do you ever just sit there and feel jealous of/sorry for your alternate universe selves who have better and worse lives than you?

I think about just how weird it would be to meet another me from a different universe. Think about it! It's not a clone, or a doppelgänger from folklore, it's you. Sure, maybe they have different experiences that made them different people, but they think exactly like you do. Your first thoughts at seeing them would be their first thoughts at seeing you. You'd both have the same voice, same posture, same mannerisms and mothers and fathers. I actually think the average person would go into shock from trying to talk to their exact double.

That's not even getting into if they're an "evil" version of you, like, the worst possible outcome of your person. Could you imagine what it would be like to be harassed or bullied or even attacked by you? Again, these people think exactly as you do. Any plan you hatch or tactic you employ, they already thought about it. It could drive people crazy.

The day string theory is supported by empirical evidence is the day people will really start to freak out about the possibility of other universes.

Early come-down. Might actually get to bed at a responsible hour tonight. Which means I might just have a productive tomorrow.

But Thursday is gonna be miserable. So I should try to do as much as I can Wednesday.

I would kill the ones who deserved it, and help the ones who needed it.

@max_morana: @rosso: Well, assuming that the multiverse theory is true, every conceivable variation of your being would exist. Some would be almost identical to you, some would be almost completely alien. Experience, intelligence, knowledge, skill, ability, etc. There is no end to what version of yourself you could meet up with. Which means, there are an infinite number of universes where I am even more of coward and weakling, and I could easily kick my ass. But on the other hand, there are also loads of evil super genius versions of myself that could annihilate me with a thought. The possibilities are endless, so it’s best not to medal with that kind of stuff.

@erinys_draconis: I don't think I saw that. But I saw a clip as a child and I remember being fascinated trying to figure out how they got him to fight himself.

@max_morana: Well I don't know! I'm sure there are at least a lot of them better than I am because they've had more ideal situations than I have as far as training. But I am pretty crafty, and it's pretty much my job to believe I'm the best of all of us.

And I would have no qualms about killing me if I did terrible things. Imagining...there'd almost certainly be some version of me who is just the worst. Oh! But you know what's even worse?

Imagine all the versions of you who you wouldn't get to meet, and let your mind go wild thinking about all the different reasons for that.

And then you say this. *LOL* I did not need to think about this imagery! :P

@rosso: Even even worse, what if you are the worst variant? Like, obviously not when it comes to evil or anything like that. But the worst in terms of success, health, intelligence and happiness? That keeps me up at night.

I don't know if I could kill another me. Actually, it might be easier to kill another me than another person? That's a moral conundrum I wasn't prepared for tonight.

@max_morana: Don’t even worry about it. There a just as many less successful versions of you as there as more successful ones. As for killing myself, I would have no sympathy or remorse for an evil version of me. Which I guess says a lot about my self perception lol.

@max_morana: If I'm being honest, I don't think that would be worse for me. Intelligence, maybe. That's one thing that strikes me differently. But I'm pretty darn healthy so if my other selves are healthier it's even better for them, and it doesn't really mean anything bad for me (unless the Zauby who lures men and women back home so she can poison them has better skill and cardio than I do. I couldn't take losing to that bitch). But I'd have a harder time, mentally, dealing with all of my selves who were worse off than I am. That would kill me inside. If I'm the worst...well, I'm used to it, and it's not so bad all the time. I actually have a really good time with my life, generally speaking. So I'd be happy to shoulder that burden for them. But that's just how I am. Somewhere between altruism and arrogance/a messiah complex.

Depends who the other person is. ;-P

@rosso: I'm not afraid to admit that seeing alts of me that are worse off would actually make me feel better about myself? lol. Don't get me wrong, I have most of the success I've mapped out for the age I am now. I'm happy and healthy and secure, but seeing an unfortunate version would just be a good reminder that things could always be worse. I think I'd reach out to my lesser alts and give them guidance on how to be better versions. Then, once the union is formed, we can travel the multiverse in numbers and imprison the evil versions XD
