  1. Thanks for the link. I don’t think an irrational, angry, hate-filled rant about nothing in particular would have done myself or anyone else any good though. It certainly wouldn’t have been heard.

  2. Would you expound upon Amanda Marcotte’s essay a bit? I think you’re referring to the tendency among those of us who’re paying attention to conclude that when a person is murdered, the murderer often receives a lighter sentence than would a similar person convicted of assault or battery, and that these sentences seem to vary according to race such that non-white convicts do not receive harsh sentences, generally, but white convicts appear to be sentenced very harshly for similar crimes – especially battery. Further, there’s a similar female/male, respectively, correlation. Are you thinking the same thing, or something different?

    Also, I love how she neglects the backstory for the male victim’s changing story.

  3. The strength standards that you linked to are from the people behind Starting Strength. If you really want to get stronger in those lifts, you really can’t beat the Starting Strength novice program. If you are healthy and young (under 35ish), you ought to be able to surpass the novice level in those charts after a couple months of following the program.

  4. Thanks for linking. Thanks for assemblign so many links too, as this is becoming my go to spot for catch up reading.

  5. To all: You’re welcome.

    @Ted: The pro-gun freedom and pro-self-defence people have remarked for a while on the absurdity of self-defence laws where killing an intruder or attacker usually results in less legal consequences than threatening or wounding one.

    @beor: Starting Strength is what I’m working on.

  6. Excellent. I’m working on Starting Strength and I’m stronger now than I have ever been (in 31 years).

    How’s your progress so far?

    Aside: the reason I assumed you weren’t on the Starting Strength program is because you referred to the “main 4” lifts. But Rippetoe repeats ad nauseam that there are 5 main lifts. It’s a sort of Starting Strength Shibboleth.

  7. I don’t do the power cleans. I work out in my basement and the ceilings not high enough. As it is, I have to do the presses from my knees.

    So far progress has been okay. I’m only a couple months in, but I am stronger than I’ve ever been, and I outlifted a friend of mine who many years ago used to be stronger than me, so, it’s going okay.
