Wil Wheaton’s response to a girl on being called a nerd

I too have dealt with this all my life. The friends who are into racing and wrestling have made fun of me. Wil is right. You don’t apologize for who you are.

I am not a slave.

Freed Slave

Ms. Jackson-Lee, I hope that your freedom papers are handy, legible and in order because a posse of paddy rollers has been dispatched from Richmond to check. If your papers are not properly signed and in order they have orders to transport you to the nearest auction block.

Statements like the one you made are clear evidence as to why there could never be any form of solidarity between us. I am NOT a slave of any kind. My parents were not born slaves and neither were theirs. I am told one of my great grandfathers was born at the end of slavery but that was well over 150 years ago.

When a person is truly free they don’t feel the need to announce it and certainly not in a loud, boisterous or obnoxious manner as you have here.

So just wait patiently and your doorbell should ring in a few hours.

You’re like a crab. You’re not really interested in anyone’s betterment. Every time you open your mouth you show that you want to pull us all back down in the barrel with you.

Shut up, madam.

Disrupting the bullshit

In order to achieve my weight loss/fitness goals I am going to have to start going to the gym twice a day instead of just right after work in the mornings.

Sugar: The “trick”

image

I’ve been back at the gym for about a month now. My strength and balance have improved significantly and I have dropped a few pounds. At the same time, I have been thinking about the mechanism surrounding insulin use, fat storage, blood sugar levels and exercise.  From talking with my trainer and going over what I’ve learned over the years as a diabetic person the solution appears to be cutting calories and carbs. You might say that is a no-brainer. And it is. The reason I put it that way is that I should have dropped more than 5 pounds by now. The insulin is constantly moving sugar from my blood to fat cells. My muscle is burning fat for fuel, not sugar. So feeding the system less overall and fewer grams of carbohydrates, I should eventually reach a point where I am burning fat faster than I am storing it.

My happy place

I’ve always loved the night sky and I always feel better when I see can see the stars. It’s probably connected with my love of space.
