By | April 14, 2019

On the first of December, 2018, I could do a grand total of 1 pull-up. Tonight I did 11 in one go. Will be time to start doing weighted pull-ups soon.

Since there is huge demand for small phones, yet manufacturers refuse to make them, what in the world is going on here? Is it just sexism?

Ok, I have a real crackpot physics theory now. What if the many-worlds interpretation of QM is correct, but that the many worlds don’t require any physical existence because determinism is true, but unverifiably so? Meaning that the many worlds exist sort of like virtual particles that never instantiate because determinism means that only world… Read More »

She'll quit soon, swearing that resistance training doesn't work. — P. D. Mangan 🇺🇸 (@Mangan150) April 12, 2019 Yep. You… Read More »

Hanna

By | April 13, 2019
