Pat Robertson Leg-Presses a Ton?

Story here.

Well, perhaps he did. Perhaps it was a partial rep; it doesn't say in the article. And that must've been some leg press machine, with ultracapacity for holding so many massive steel disks. That's something I'd have paid to witness. An old dude pressing a ton! Who'da thunk Pat Robertson was a longtime powerlifter? But what's the deal with his scrawny forearms?! Mine look like bowling-pins: narrow at the wrist and like old oak branches towards the elbow.

Nevertheless, I've found the leg press to be my favorite amongst calf-building movements.

In fact, I've gone up to 700 pounds for full-motion-range, slow, controlled reps reaching twelvish. I'm a bit of a genetic freak when it comes to calf strength, in fact. It's my calves that surpassed everyone else in the gym for sheer power, including the most massively built guys who actually have competed. Oh, and my quads are positively Tom Platz-like in growth tendency (which is why I need do nothing for my freaking quads), though not renowned for excessive strength.

Oh, and here's a pic of Tom Platz, so you can get an idea of his leg size... and what mine would look like by now if I'd continued to work on my quads...


Below: Tom Platz. Cick here for bio and more freaky pics of the guy best known for quad mass...


By the way, please note that this isn't Aizlynne doing this post (really, would Aizlynne likely have a super-masculine, herculean physique the likes of which I herein speak?)... it's me, the Canadian Sentinel, who used to actually envision himself as the next Arnold, conquering the Olympian posing stage and going on to action flicks, blowing away them cursed jihadist bastards...

I did not make this up.

And, though I trained like a complete feckheaded nut between 1984 and 2001 (on and off from 1995, and not at all since 2001), I have unfortunately allowed myself to go a bit to pot... but the underlying mass never left me (thanks to my obsession with consuming adequate protein each and every day). It won't take me long to get back into the best shape of my life... just go back to the gym and cut up by, say, twenty-thirty pounds... (I mean, at 5'7, 200 pounds is a tad too fat, as I don't exactly possess the brobdingnagian mass of someone like that Platz fellow above left).

Well, many thanks be to Aizlynne for the opportunity to talk to a good number of folks about something I like that doesn't have to do with thumping leftists and ripping jihadists a new one...

Whew... I feel like I just wrote an article for FLEX magazine!

Camelot: Came a Long Way?

What's happened to the Democrats? It's a mystery indeed!

Today they do things that are easy and denounce those who do things that are hard.

Harsh Immigration Laws

Immigration laws for this country are pretty strict when you compare it to the USA and Canada.

For example:




1. If you migrate to this county, you must speak the native language.

2. You have to be a professional or an investor. No unskilled workers allowed.

3. There are no special bilingual programs in schools and no special ballots for elections. All government business is conducted in the native language.

4. Foreigners do not have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.

5. Foreigners cannot hold political office.


6. Foreigners will not be a burden to taxpayers. No welfare, food stamps, health care, or other government assistance programs.

7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000
times the daily minimum wage.

8. If foreigners want to buy land, restrictions are placed on what they can purchase. For example, you cannot own waterfront property. That is reserved for citizens naturally born in this country.

9. Foreigners cannot protest; demonstrate, wave a foreign flag, organize politically, or bad-mouth the President or his policies. You are subject to immediate deportation if found doing any one of these things.

10. If you come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail, without benefit of legal counsel.



Harsh policy no doubt. Would it surprise you to find out that these are the policies of Mexico?


Moonbats take note ... not all Republics are as generous as the USA in it's immigration policies - so shut the hell up about the US trying to enforce border issues and deal with illegal immigration. Maybe you would like to live in Mexico instead?

The Worst Of Hockey Fans

Once again, San Jose "fans" (and I use that word in the loosest of terms when it comes to San Jose) showed their class by booing the national athem of Canada.

Of course, most haven't a clue about hockey to start with and only get on the bandwagon when the Sharks get into the playoffs.

Things obviously haven't changed much in San Jose. I recall during the 2004 series loss against the Flames, they booed the national anthem then as well. Of course, this was after they had to give out free tickets in order to fill up the stadium.

As
this article points out, a good majority of their key players are in fact Canadian, and probably don't appreciate their "fans" booing their flag, especially when they play so hard for them (Johnathon Cheechoo comes to mind).

So this morning a big slap across the head goes to all the San Jose idiots who think it's fun to show their disrespect to the opposition. It's just a game folks! Lighten up would ya!

GO OILERS GO!!!

The City That Wasn't



What you see isn't necessarily what you get.


Thousands of tourists and local residents witnessed a mirage of high clarity lasting for four hours off the shore of Penglai City in east China's Shandong Province on Sunday.

Mists rising on the shore created an image of a city, with modern high-rise buildings, broad city streets and bustling cars as well as crowds of people all clearly visible.

The city of Penglai had been soaked by two days of rain before the rare weather phenomenon occurred.

The mirage took place during the week-long Labor Day holiday. The small city received over 30,000 tourists on Sunday.

Experts said that many mirages have been recorded in Penglai, on the tip of Shandong Peninsula, throughout history, which made it known as a dwelling place of the gods.

They explained that a mirage is formed when moisture in the air becomes warmer than the temperature of sea water, which refracts rays of sunlight to create reflections of the landscape in the sky.

Now THAT'S More Like It

I am happy to see Harper finally getting his feet stable. His start out of the gate was pretty bad, but it looks like things may be turning around.

This story reflects exactly the kind of changes that many many Albertan's were looking for. I saw Harper with his son on the TV while watching the Senator's game the other night. I was very pleased to see that he paid for his own tickets, instead of getting some freebies from lobbyists or those who would like to influence him.

And quite frankly, I would rather see $1,000 go to reducing our tax burden then furnishing the NAC with good optics by having "those of influence" being sent on the taxpayer dollar. Interesting how many bow out now that THEY have to pay their own way!

All I can say is YEAH ... and LONG OVERDUE!

Now THAT is more like it!!

Fraser Gets Ralph

I am not sure if this is the Institute most folks thought Ralph would be going to after life as Premier. Replacing Preston??

For our sake, let's just hope
Ralph sits at the bottom, rather than the top, of the tank.

Polar Bears Make The List -- And So Do Hippos!

It is not the kind of list that should make humans proud. In fact, we should be hanging our heads in shame.

What list is this? It's the
extinction list, which now includes polar bears and hippos.

This article is a must read for everyone. The article also discusses other mammals, fish and plant life that are on the edge, the critical list, or new entries such as the polar bear and hippopotamus.

But it's not all bad news. There have been some successes in restoration of certain species, although the list is definitely growing, and not shrinking.

Sissy Jihadist Training Video

Terrorists are supposed to look fearsome as well as be fearsome. But the optics don't really always match the reality.

View this video and marvel at the dorkiness and sissiness of this so-called terrorist in this training video.

Notice how he throws his grenade. Who taught him, one of the "Queer Eye" guys?

See his shoes. Nay; they look like slip-ons with white rubber soles...

Observe how lazily he moves. What is he, eighty years old?!

I would name that sissy jihadist "Tinky Al-Winky". In fact, he actually walks like Tinky Winky! Where's his purse? Perhaps another terrorist is kindly holding it for him?
