Not Enough


 

 

Deti writes

Those Yiayia commercials make me laugh every time. Announcer asks cute girl or pussyboy guy what they’re doing, lets them get part of a sentence out, then essentially interrupts them with “shut up bitch, let’s hear what Yiayia has to say”. Yiayia then drops a truth bomb, leaving our modern day liberal progressive speechless…. 

Funny as hell. I know it’s supposed to be “oh hahaha look at the throwback judgmental old biddy, so behind the times, so ancient, so irrelevant”. But people know it’s true, down deep, and they love someone who is blunt and direct. 

And that’s why it works.

Sure, there is an element of in women wanting to be told what is right and what is wrong by a strong hand; be it a man or yiayia (Greek for Grandmother).  The women in the commercials have their “submission bone” tickled for a second.  In the olden days, it would have been tickled for more than a second.

So, yes, women do know what is right and wrong.  But, to compete with other women, to go the fun path, to blah-blah they just do what they feel.

What I would really like to see is commercials where the women are in some unhappy situation (e.g. pumped and dumped, 35 and with no prospects) with Yiayia providing some commentary

    Good luck with that one. For Yiayia’s commentary to have any value (it’s a commercial remember), she would have to be selling self-control and the pain of delayed gratification – forgoing something now in exchange for something greater later.

    That is exactly the opposite of what commercial’s sell now – “don’t think” and “instant gratification” (do it now). Those commercials have trained several generations of children about how to behave better than any Sunday School ever did. Train up a child in the way he should go and he will not depart from it works for lessons learned anywhere (in front of the television), not just lessons learned from Sunday School.

    I do enjoy when these broads at least for a few seconds wonder why they are single and they also put out they are not submissive in any way. It’s almost like they know but can’t articulate it in a way a full blown sexist misogynist can.

  5. I like older yiayia’s accent better, but somewhat younger yiayia has a better chance of actually getting some licks in with the rug beater.

    I’m down to 20 grams/carbs per day, except when I’m not, so I appreciate the many, beautiful Renaissance paintings of proper (and aspirational) food, in this thread. Protein is winning. The USG/USDA told us all to eat low-fat, high-carb diets beginning late ’70s.

    Now everyone is fat (40% of white women and 45% of black women are morbidly obese), T2 diabetes has exploded, there’s no reduction in heart disease, and, I predict, we’ll shortly document the causal relatiionship between sugar consumption and Alzheimers.

    For the mature man, P.D. Mangan offers science-derived but nonconformist direction on diet and fasting, exercise (composite heavy lifts, duh, and walk around a few days a week), and general longevity. Though I do mow or sail or fish without a shirt sometimes, I don’t look this good.

    He and I are the same age. I’d say he’s most interesting for tying his research to his own personal experimentation. Notably, he’s not injecting and lifting 20 hours a week. Try one- two hours of the right workouts coupled with the right diet. There might be someone else here who gets value from his work, and I hope so.

    Something Ame said on the last post about Mike’s family stuck at the airport.
    Keep in mind they are delayed but they are safe in a large public building with food, water, heat, security.

    Ames said
    “coupled with the fact that women need male assurance and reassurance, it gets confusing. how does a man know which one a woman is acting on? is she being manipulative and bitchy or is she sincerely needing help?

    and at some point in our lives, most every woman finds herself in a situation where there’s no one to call, and she has to just figure it out and endure it.”

    This happens more and more. SIW who have no man in their lives. Or married men, wife goggles smashed who want the bitch to suffer, just the man on the street ignoring a damsel in distress (you do cpr on her, I aint getting charged).

    ALL women, ALL, are rapidly using up mens good will and tolerence.

    Her dispute with Pakman started when Siskind tweeted last week that white males were “not where our party is at” when it comes to recent successful Democratic candidates.

    Democrats have “some unpacking to do” when it comes to the “internalized sexism and racism” in the party and “why we presume white male [sic] is safe,” she wrote, referring to the national popularity of failed Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke.

    Pakman responded on Twitter that “pre-emptively dismissing a candidate based on their race and gender” did not seem “progressive” to him: “I feel like there’s as [sic] word to describe that.”

    When Siskind retorted that “[s]ecure men are always at the fore-front of diversity,” Pakman said he agreed. But that view is “the exact opposite” of Siskind’s previous statement prejudging white male candidates, he argued.

    “She exhibits personal prejudice in her comment, but proposes a way of selecting candidates that is sexist and racist,” he told a skeptical Twitter user.

    Two days after their Twitter encounter, Pakman told his followers that Siskind had then “called Boston College demanding they not have me back as adjunct faculty.”

    We are inches from these Marxists imposing academic notions of bad speech on society generally, vitiating the 1st Amendment. The same loathing that we are accustomed to wrt the 2nd A. is now aimed at critical speech.

    Sounds extreme, but academic notions of “sexual assault” (“he asked me out for a date, and I was terrified that’s assault”) are already penetrating civic relations.

    BV, I’ll check out this guy’s stuff, but since I’m a lazy clam at the moment (and in general), could you give me the short skinny on fasting? Does he recommend it for days, or is it the 12-14 hour version (overnight, late breakfast)? Need to get in shape if I want to be a TRB…

    Intermittent fasting = consuming calories during a 6-8-10 hour window only. I fast for 18 hours. So I eat during a six hour window. If one also eliminates or restrict consumption of sugars, one will be in ketosis within 72 hours. In ketosis, while restricting alcohol, I lose up to a pound a day, while eating to satiety (no calorie counting). In my case it means learning to like going to bed a llittle hungry, and having black coffee or black coffee with stevia in the a.m. (I’ll drink unsweetened coffee during the ‘fast’) when I wake up a little hungry.

    I have never had trouble exercising on an empty stomach, but a trail running bitch whose butt is so hard you can bounce dimes off of it may find it unpleasant. I deal with food cravings by drinking coffee or cold water, and I deal with carb cravings by ignoring them and emptying the house of Triscuits.

    When I am on this regime, while exercising, my mental acuity goes through the roof as does my mood.

    On one level this is just adopting a wrestler’s lifestyle. So it’s not so crazy, except as a society we have been sold bullshit about breakfast and carbs and snacking being super-duper important.

    ***

    A lot of people will fast for 3-5 days. I’ve done that but I didn’t see any benefit, and I didn’t like obsessing about the process. Danger: Don’t be a food weirdo.

    So I’m cutting weight now and I’ll have a steak, or hamburger or bacon etc. usually around 2 p.m. and cook seconds if I’m still hungry. I might have some eggs or soup for supper. I like to make a light chicken soup with duck or quail eggs. Regular eggs work fine.

    In terms of avoiding the carbs, wine is about 1.5 grams/unit and whiskey/vodka less.

    ***

    TL;DR version: skip breakfast, don’t snack.

    I agree with BV at 7:13 pm BTW. I hadn’t heard it described as “fasting”, but in effect that’s what I do. I have my last meal, a light one, at 5 or 6 pm after which I don’t eat until 8 am or 9 or 10 am next day – sometimes not until 12 noon. I start work early, and during physical work I don’t think of food. As mentioned, I don’t get sick, not even a cold.

    Swedish state broadcaster SVT has come under fire for what some viewers are calling an effort to downplay the horrendous details of the murders of two Scandinavian backpackers in Morocco

    On Christmas Eve, the national public broadcaster in Sweden aired a report about the barbaric killings, but chose not to focus on the actual details of the crime or the now-established links to Islamic terrorism. The SVT report made no mention of the fact that one of the young women was beheaded, said nothing about the ISIS link and simply referred to “knife damage” on the woman’s neck.

    Bizarrely, the report focused almost entirely on how it is a punishable offence to share the disturbing video. Written reports on SVT’s website did mention the fact that the murders have been linked to Islamic terrorism, but that fact was nowhere to be found in its strange Christmas Eve report.

    my chiropractor is vegetarian, but i need meat protein and have always known that … then found it interesting yesterday at my nutritionist’s when she told me the same.

    6. She tried to compare the Holocaust to what’s taking place on the Southern border.

    5. Apparently every member of Congress needs to pay their interns…and it must be a living wage.

    Ocasio-Cortez decided to chide her colleagues for not paying their interns, which she thinks is unfair. Naturally, she had to one-up everyone else by vowing to pay her interns at least $15 an hour.

    The most ironic aspect though: Democrats, the same people who supposedly fight for a fair wage, are the ones who make their interns work for free.

    3. Ocasio-Cortez claimed to be a political outsider but she cherry picked what aspects of her resume – and life – people knew about her.

    The reason Ocasio-Cortez was so successful this election cycle is because she was branded as a political outsider, someone who wanted to help others and be a voice for the powerless. The problem, however, is that her background is anything but that of an outsider.

    There are just a few things most people don’t know about her:

    • When she was five she moved from the Bronox to Yorktown Heights, where the average household income is $141,254.

    • She attended Boston University, a private college where tuition alone currently sits at $52,816 (and no, that doesn’t include room and board, books, fees, etc).

    • While in college she interned for U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy and handled foreign affairs and immigration casework for his constituents.

    • She campaigned for Bernie Sanders in 2016.

    • After the 2016 election she drove across the country to talk to people in Flint, Michigan about the water crisis there and to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests to talk with protestors.

    • She worked for the National Hispanic Institute, a nonprofit organization that fights for the civil rights of hispanics, as the Educational Director of the 2017 Northeast Collegiate World Series.

    2. Ocasio-Cortez tried to compare Central Caravan riders to those of Jews fleeing Nazi Germany,

    1. She violated House ethics…and she hasn’t even been sworn in yet.

    Soon a local redneck pulled in, filled his tank, and asked for his FREE SEX.

    The owner told him to pick a number from 1 to 10. If he guessed correctly, he would get his FREE SEX.

    The redneck guessed ‘8’. The proprietor said, “You were close. The number was ‘7’. Sorry, but no FREE SEX this time.”

    A week later, the same redneck, along w/his brother, Bubba, pulled in for another fill-up. Again he asked for his FREE SEX.

    The proprietor again gave him the same story, and asked him to guess the correct number.

    The redneck guessed ‘2’ this time.

    The proprietor said, “Sorry, it was ‘3’. You were close, but no FREE SEX this time.”

    As they were driving away, the redneck said to his brother, “I think that game is rigged, and he doesn’t really give away FREE SEX.”

    E.g today did squat except hour with ponies and two hour walk w dog. So had two begals at 1200 and three sausages and a salad at 6. Thats it.
    But on a farm day its easily six dggs, four sammaches, litre of juice.

    Weight stays between 170-185. Never broke 200 ever at 6-1.
    Test is I can still bench my weight and do a 30 min 5 k. As long as I do those twice a week I am good.

    Occassional ginger ale and beer but not alot of other sweets.

    also use the three step rule. Prep is only three steps from ground to fork.
    E.g. grain to flour to bread, egg to frypan, meat to fry to stew.

    Only “packaged” food is what comes in a bag e.g. coffee beans or a carton like milk or juice.

    If you only buy what you can see is food its easy to cut out chemicals.
    And no soy or corn syrup.

    wise advice, Horseman. i’ve never been a big eater. now i’m eating a very specific diet w/very specific supplements to heal different organs in my body nutritionally, so the times and amt and specific foods i eat – all real foods, natural, organic, etc – are important. someday i’ll have more flexibility again 😉

    my Oldest is a lot like me and has to remind herself to eat. Aspie Girl is usually trying to find foods that help stop her from feeling bad – almost always has a gut thing somewhere going on. i’m going to take her to this nutritionist, too, after the first of the year. she’s had so many gut issues all her life, and i’ve been researching and trying different things. it gets rough sometimes. i’m hoping this nutritionist can find some of her root issues, which we’ve been searching for since birth, and help heal all that. it’s amazing what this nutritionist does. i wish i understood science better to understand it all … but, i don’t. so it’s just that she’s doing all this science stuff to help my body stuff 🙂 🙂 🙂

    along those lines … one of the hugely frustrating things about having a kid in special ed in the public school system was her diet because they always, ALWAYS, watched what she ate, and every ARD meeting (special ed meetings w/staff, teachers, parents) they brought up her diet. every.single.one. and i knew that if i did not send a certain variety of foods to school in her lunchbox there was a good chance of them reporting me to someone somewhere, so i always sent the right foods whether i knew she would/could eat them or not. was a total waste, but it kept me from being reported.

    public school = gov’t school … means they only go by gov’t diet standards (which are totally unhealthy) … but if you don’t follow the gov’t rules, they’ll report you to another division of gov’t.

    I was trying to watch the Bears-Vikings game downtown. (I have no TV at home, but I like football.) It’s the kind of place where if you drop your pool cue on the floor you have to pay the house $1.00. My friend (da Bears!) who works at the packing plant, was very drunk and the woman who claims to be a prison guard with claimed super duper death moves on demand (Vikes, oh ja) were yelling at each other and threatenng violence. I was sitting between them.

    This is a problem I never had to solve at the Hay-Adams or PJ Clarke’s.

    “There’s too much yelling here, chill!” I said very loudly. Jesse the kindly bartender, whose probably gay, nodded. Female says, “I work in a prison, STFU.” Jesse retreats.

    Then Mitch, who is 30 years younger and five inches taller and 50 pounds heavier, said, “Stop picking on her.”

    Mitch has been looking for a fight with me for three years, because I laughed at him a couple of times.

    I picked up my beer and moved away. Probably a beta move. I don’t want my children to remember me as a guy who shot someone twice his size in the face in a bar. I have never clocked a female. Life presents dilemmas.

    My friend left, forgetting his ratty Olds. Walks home, I guess. Temp 3F. Tough death-dealing girl left, but not with her husband, because she came alone.

    A barmaid brought me some chicken and green beens from home and didn’t even ask me to return the tupperware container.

    C.S. Lewis suggests, in “The Great Divorce”, that this is not an earthly vale, but Hell. One wonders.

    ***

    PJ Clarke’s is a saloon on the upper east side of NYC, 3rd and 55th. Fancy. Great omelettes and burgers. My ex- was a coat check girl there when we were poor and first-married. She made $1-200 a night checking coats. I recommend the joint.

    Bartenders are off-duty NYC cops. They’re not gay.

    The magic words are “I’m from out of town.” A guy can stand quietly and have his Templeton rye. No one yells at each other. I just look at the cop over the horde and noise, raise my eyebrows, and I am refilled.

    No he just doesnt give in to weaklings. He sees you coming.

    I was in a pissy mood and had been working with Rogan for all of three days. We understood each other.

    So as they were in the barn tacking up four or five princess horses I went to bring Rogan in for the night. He was way in the top field. It was hot. I was tired.

    Fuck it. Clipped the lead on one side of his halter, looped it and tied it to the other side.
    Led him to the fence and got on bareback. He danced a bit.
    Roge I am here, wise the fuck up.
    He settled.

    So we come down the hill at a nice trot right up into the barn stopping about a foot from the first princess horse. Eeeek!

    “Whenever you ladies are done, Roge would like his dinner in the last stall.”
    Silence.
    Cross ties unclipped.
    Five horses shuffle over, princesses wide eyed.

    Rogan sensed it an never seen a horse walk slower or prouder into his stall.
    Rode him right in.
    Turned him loose.

    Thank you ladies.

    Next day my lady boss started taking a strip off me.
    I was tired. And walked away.
