So...Because it's so busy, there's now 3 of us here on a Saturday night. Sadly, my two colleagues have less than 6 months of experience combined. -_-

That's just an opportunity to train them the right way. Your way.




So you can sleep on the job a couple weeks from now.

Do you know how tedious it is to solder an LED matrix? I tested it on a breadboard, and then started soldering. Now two LEDs don't work, and it doesn't seem to be a connection issue. Blah.

Aaand our accountant just turned in her 2 weeks because she can't take it here any more, even though she hasn't got anything else lined up. Not surprising, really, she didn't really have the background and was thrown in the deep end with constant backseat driving from the owner's pet over in Midland. Still, it will make things more stressful for myself and the neophyte TD who is still getting the swing of her job. Before we were 3 people doing the work of 5, and now we're 2 and I am sure somehow this is going to increase my work load - because that always happens.

GD it, the power surge I had on Friday that fried my surge protector also took out my speakers. I didn't notice because I just had my sound going to my headset all weekend, but GD it, now I need to get new speakers.

Sheesh, our sensei made us do our whole workout with a 5lb weight in each hand last night. I feel like Goku.

Weighted clothing training has become a "thing" since Dragonball Z. It actually works at building muscle and making movements easier, but a good vest isn't cheap.

I am really tired of eating shitty food. Pizza, microwave dinners, burgers, and generally unhealthy food. My kitchen is finally unpacked, but groceries are another story. I'd love a salad.And the landlord/property manger hasn't cashed our checks (deposit, pet deposit, and first month's rent) yet! WTF lady I'm waiting on you! Next month I'm getting a money order instead of worrying that we're going to have problems.

I always wondered why there isn't more in-water training.

--Patrick
A traditional training method for Muay Thai Boran is to stand in chest-deep water with a number of coconuts floating around you and attempting to crack them with a punch or elbow. The resistance of the water, the bobbing, and the wake of your own movements make it very hard to strike cleanly, which in turn helps improve strength, speed, and accuracy.

I've tried water training for martial arts. It is done, but it doesn't work very well for normal training. You need gravity to maintain your stance, and to snap back after a strike.

It works pretty well as just a general endurance thing if you just, you know, SWIM but that's about it.

Well, the cider bottle I left on my desk on Friday that I thought was empty, was in fact still half full, and now I and my desk smell like I have been day drinking. YAY

I figured she meant it smelled like stale cider; I was just wondering whether or not that's nicer than stale beer :p

75% of the forum was under 10 years old when this song was released. I doubt many are going to get it.

Now it's going to be stuck in my head the rest of the day.
