Re: Politics & Current Events

Releasing the Comey memos appears to be a bit of a misstep by the GOP. I haven't an idea what they are thinking. I suppose it's a good thing for them their 40% don't read or get information unfiltered. I think this summed up the rationale fairly well: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/04/why...

Re: Anyone into fitness?

I was gonna mention HIIT as the way to go as well. It honestly might be that you're doing TOO much at the gym...your body may not be getting the recovery time that it needs. I'm far from an expert on this stuff, and that's why I've been going to a small group training 3 times a week since September...

Anyone into Intermittent Fasting around here? I don't eat breakfast, not for health reasons per se, but because I'm too lazy to wake up early enough to eat breakfast and I don't like breakfast foods as much as any other kind of food.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

There had to be some serious topspin on that, too. When it first hit the grass, it just took off. I'm not sure of the physics of everything with the wet grass. But, from that Fangraphs article looking at similarly hit balls, that data doesn't include spin. So I'm wondering if it has something to do...
