Knights of Sidonia Hints of Hentai

The anime "Knights of Sidonia" aired its second season on July 3, 2015. It introduced a new character made from gauna enna named, Tsumugi. I'm not an expert on Japanese, but if you asked me to translate that, I would guess "tsumugi" means something like giant pink penis tentacle.

Giant pink penis is in your Sidonian sewer system, belonging it to itself.

It almost seems like Disney did their dirty work on the sci-fi saga. An amateur might think that anyway. Disney differs from anime by attempting to subtly hide images of schlong in their animated features.

Ursula the Witch just wanted some D from Neptune. D does not stand for Disney in this case.

The priest in the Little Mermaid erecting his erection.
Ethically, I appreciate the anime because of its transparent display of phallic things. Knights of Sidonia's new character made fun of stereotypical genre defining themes, such as hentai-esque giant tentacles executing their will on everything it can.

Disney, however, attempts to sneak their perverted themes into an audience base largely consisting of children. These cartoon features roll out predictable, family oriented, "safe", happy-ending types of plots. The incongruity triggers my negative reaction more than the things themselves.

Might as well change their mascot to Pedobear with Mickey Mouse ears.

Weird World of Netflix

Netflix's front page on their website streams some Ken Burns image effect.

The content of the images weirded me out.

Weird Netflix Picture #1


Shocked. Shocked and scared. That's what this little boy's facial expression says.
Who knows what kind of material they're watching. I'm guessing little sis over there figured out a way to hack past the Kids safety menu and started streaming "nymphomaniac volume 1". The movie is about paralleling angling, aka fly fishing, to the lifestyle of a female nymphomaniac. Their family fishing trips will never be the same.

And what's with the creepy lady eavesdropping?


Is that mom? An older sister? And what are they doing? Big brother watches everything in lady's leggings? Creepy as hell, Netflix.

Weird Netflix Picture #2



Little daughter captivated by romcom selection a la mom. Meanwhile, mom digs her shoulder into what we can assume is dad's pancreas. Notice the entire family tilting left like a bunch of books on a bookshelf falling over.



And what's with the lovey puppy eyes with the dad and son? Is that even a boy? And is that even the dad? For all we know that could be "mommy's friend" that comes over when dad goes away for long business trips.

Notice in the far left of the picture a pillow cushion.



Normally we would assume such a cushion exists for the family dog. But no dog appears present in the photo, nor do any dog toys litter the living room near said cushion.

We can then reasonably assume that the cushion designates the area where that androgynous child must stay during watching films. See how he desperately climbs the arm of the sofa while mommy's friend attempts to fling the child back to the slave child cushion?

What a weird, dark world these Netflix watchers live in. Americans are fucked up.

Netflix Weirdness Picture #3



Nothing too weird here.

EXCEPT THAT WATCH LOOKS STOLEN.


That's your grandfather's watch that Christopher Walken's dad hid up his ass in World War 2, Butch.

WOD Willpower Builder

"Yo, B, you gonna WOD with us today?"

Crossfit turned the acronym, WOD, or Workout Of [the] Day, into a verb, if you haven't noticed already. And the self-dubbed "athletes" know it shares the same namespace as its pornographic counterpart.

On day 1 of Crossfit, I WODDED with Diane, which as it turns out, tore down my muscles through negative catobolic mechanisms. But there's something to it we can takeaway that will build our willpower without destroying our bodies.

Diane WOD
  • 25 Deadlifts
  • 25 Handstand Pushups
  • 16 Deadlifts
  • 16 Handstand Pushups
  • 9 Deadlifts
  • 9 Handstand Pushups
I used 225 lbs. for deadlifts. It hurt. But the next day, my body didn't hurt. How?

Honestly, I attribute intermittent fasting and the 2000% increase in my body's growth hormone to the quick recovery than anything else (sorry, Crossfit, erm, Diane). My willpower, however, strengthened.

Crossfit workouts eventually broke down my body.

Squats Before 2 Weeks of Crossfit

5 sets of 315 lbs.

Squats After 2 Weeks of Crossfit

3 sets (barely) of 5 reps of 175 lbs.

My body deteriorated. The stress from the overuse of the same muscle groups and the same joints every day, overtrained my body. I did this for the sake of experimentation, no one convinced me or coerced me to try this or buy into it against my right to think for myself and make decisions).

My endurance dropped as well.

Mile Time Before 2 Weeks of Crossfit

5 minutes and 48 seconds.

Mile Time After 2 Weeks of Crossfit

Needed a break after getting to the track, then ran a mile in 7 minutes and 37 seconds.

However, my willpower increased substantially.

The absurd amount of repetitions in Crossfit workouts build the strength of willpower. We can takeaway that factor and put it into exercises that benefit our bodies. We can build our willpower by accomplishing a set task.

If we drop the ignorance of overtraining workouts, we can increase our willpower by doing a Filthy Fifty, or in my case, WOD with Diane.

Just take the formula of numbers, and plug in things you can do without breaking your body. Even if it's just snapping your fingers 25 times, then clapping 25 times. It's completing the task that augments our willpower.

Lady of the Nightshade

Browsing for exercise mats on Amazon.com went swimmingly well until this image popped up on my browser.

"I WILL KILL THEM ALL WITH THESE BELL PEPPERS OF THE SOLANACEAE FAMILY! HAHAHAHA!"


This woman is trying to kill us all with her sink full of night-shade vegetables!

But don't take my word for it.

Happiness Amino Acids

These amino acids make you happy, less moody, better focused.



Or as they say in the hood, TYRONEsine.

As for the other...



Carnitine.

Don't worry. Be happy.

Arginine, Cirtulline, and BCAA Amino Acid Workout Supplements

Amino Acids to Enhance Exercise Results

These are the supplements I'm using in my own workouts. If you click the links and/or pictures of these workout supplements to go to buy them on Amazon, they give me a small percentage of money. There isn't a catch. I post what I use, my results, things I know, and you decide if you want to try for yourself.

BCAA


I take branch chain amino acids 20 minutes before doing intense lifting or some kind of sprinting, or tabata with battle ropes, or something of that ilk. Addendum. I take BCAA all the time throughout the day in small amounts. I do this because most of the day I fast. The bag says take 3 grams three times a day. I've never gotten ill but 1 person I know says they feel slight nausea after taking the BCAA supplement.

Citrulline DL Malate 2:1


I take this stuff with L-arginine upon waking, before a workout, and before bed. Best used on an empty stomach. It will get rid of soreness, improve skin, blood circulation, and for men it improves their body's ability to circulate blood into the capillaries of their man-anatomy if a stimulating occasion arises. However, over-training and/or depression and/or anxiety pummel pharmacological solutions for floppiness into nothingness.

L-Arginine


Empty stomach, before a workout, and before bed on an empty stomach. It improves endurance, blood circulation, skin, and just like the citrulline, also makes for a natural, very effective viagra substitute. For those seeking non exercise benefits such as heart conditions, take this one plus the citrulline.

Crossfit My Balls

"How'd that WOD feel, Bronson?"

"I felt it in my balls."

WOD means Workout Of the Day.

My third time at Kahala Cross fit, and also third time ever doing Crossfit, I learned that humility is the best workout preparation for:

20 wall balls (there's those balls again). I squat with a ball marked with the number 20. Wasn't sure if it meant 20Kg or 20lbs. Either way, it felt like a ton after trying to toss it 10 feet up in the air against the wall from a squat.

Run 200m. Did OK there.

15 barbell cleans from the ground. It feels like pulling a deadlift into your throat. Looks like it, too. Men's standard is 135lbs. Women is 95lbs. I did 75lbs. The woman behind me ripped 155lbs. off the floor. 15 times.

Row 500m. Felt that one in my balls.

15 barbell cleans. Again.

Run 200m. Again.

20 wall balls. Again.

The goal is to do it all as fast as possible with respect to form.

I emphasize form and control over everything else so I tend be really slow but I'm OK with it. Rushing becomes less of a factor that could compromise form anyway since we've descended into being retarded from exhaustion.

But I definitely felt my balls tingle during that WOD (lol). Was nuts. No pun intended.

Outside Insurgent Walls

Insurgent is a movie that's a sequel to Divergent.

They live in a city.

The city.

Surrounded by walls.



Tris asked Four what exists beyond the walls.

So what's beyond the walls?

The guy on the far right knows. Titans.

Many Titans.

Satan Loves Cauliflower

I cooked some curry vegetables the other day and noticed a disproportionate amount of cauliflower in the veggie mix.

"Damn. Why?! Why does God punish us with cauliflower filler?! Why???!!!"

Then in a flash of fire, Satan appeared!

Satan: "Technically, God loves you. But I hate you. Give credit where credit is due. I created cauliflower. Not Him!"

Bronson: "Oh. That makes sense. If you had a restaurant, would you overpopulate the seasonal vegetable mixes with it then only add 1 or 2 actual seasonal vegetables to the plate?"

Satan: "I absolutely would."

Bronson: "Why did you go with cauliflower though?"

Satan: "Well, we tested rice cakes during the pre-marketing phase but it didn't pan out as we hoped. So we went more organic and less processed.

You also know how I love to attack with subtlety. Rice cake assaults, in retrospect, seemed a bit amateurish. It's a tough sell to convince humans that food looking like styrofoam was not only food, but healthier food, too."

Bronson: "Humans believe you're real, and that seems like more of a stretch."

Satan: "I know, right?"

Anyway, the jig was up before I could sew my dietary seed of evil using rice cakes."

Bronson: "How does rice cake consumption qualify as a sin?"

Satan: "It all boils down to gluttony and my personal favorite, pride. You see, people who ate rice cakes loaded them with sugary jelly and peanut butter, usually in that order.

Haha that reminds me of the genesis of rice cakes when people would attempt to put the peanut butter on first, then the jelly, then squish it together. Haha I ruined so many white clothes... Ah... Those were the days. Red jelly everywhere. I love that color, you know.

But the point I am making is that the intentions to indulge in gluttony existed within rice cake aficionados. They wanted the satisfaction of decadent indulgence and saw themselves above any consequences despite their intentions born deep from sin.

Some would wear the crumbs pridefully, as if to say their sacrifice to eat styrofoam exalted in them greater spiritual purity over others. They might say,

'Oh that? That's just rice cake crumbs. Yea I'm hardcore. Taking the nutritional high road definitely challenges me, but greater is He that's in me...'

Humans amuse me. But I hate them at the same time. I GET SO ANGRY SOMETIMES!

Bronson: "I understand now.

Why did you switch to cauliflower?"

Satan: "I thought, oh hey, I tricked pot-heads to logically formulate that because marijuana comes from a plant in the ground that it must be good. So why not make a vegetable, a thing that grows in the earth, be just as heinous as rice cakes and apply the same logic?

Bam. Cauliflower."

Bronson: "It's like a rice cake in the shape of broccoli. It's awful."

Satan: "It really is, terrible, isn't it?

I need just a minute to dump some frustration on you that's unrelated to this that the pot-head logic reminded me of.

As an aside I just want to point out that teaching logic to pot-heads caused me great agony because I had to abandon subtlety and reveal myself to them in order to embark on that painfully difficult teaching task.

Then they were like, 'Oh wow, Satan! What's up evil red dude! Haha right on, I'm tripping balls, haha!'

They're a full time job, though. I still have to zip on over through spiritual nether before they open their mouths in an argument justifying their sticky gooey. It's because they forget any new information 2 minutes later and end up going in circles.

Plus you know their logic, and how they justify slothful sin and greed in a stealthy, herbal way.

But they're all deaf to anything contrary and get all dreadlocky rasta rasta blah blah. Why am I complaining? Either way I win!"

Bronson: "I never thought of pot-heads as Satanic."

Satan: "I'm amazing at subtlety.

Since I'm feeling generous, do you have any more questions? I might answer them honestly. I might not."

Bronson: "Is it true you can be in only one place at a time?"

Satan: "Yes. Which reminds me, I need to go influence someone to write a blog about 7 awesome things you can do with cauliflower.

That's one thing I am so proud of.

Well I'm proud of many things.

But I am especially proud of implanting the idea in humans of making the internet.

And of course its subsidiary distractions: porn, blogging, Facebook, emails, etc.

You know when you write a scathing email to someone like your boss? Those are my demons influencing you to think it is a good idea to click 'send'.

AOL used to allow an unsend feature. But I nipped that in the bud. Gmail appears to give you an option in the lab settings to enable an un-send feature.

I digress. Gotta go, she's considering broccoli, and how it heals the liver. Can't have that happening! Toodles!"

Bronson: "Nice chatting with you, Satan."

Today I learned...
Satan loves cauliflower.
But not as much as he loves the internet.
