    Justified, but he should have tackled her rather than hit her, not because she is a woman, but because it can be considered excessive force.

    Does that mean you lack depth-perception? Man, that must suck...


    Yes, you would lack depth-perception, however, you learn to calculate distances quite easily.

    I found this ridiculously good, though they are not really bassy on their own (Like plugged into an Ipod) but run it though a receiver or something else and it sounds great.

    posted a message on Need some fitness help.
    Quote from Kickablock

    Okay to start off, yeah I know this is a Minecraft forum. But I'd like to hear your thoughts about this. I've applied for the Navy in ADF (Australian Defence Force). After all the theory testing, there is a fitness test which constists of 15 push-ups, 20 sit-ups and a level of 6.1 on the beep test. Now I can do the sit-ups, I made it to 4.1 on the beep test (Don't need help any help) but I can only do around 3-4 push-ups, when 15 are required. I have access to a gym twice a week, I need some fitness help. Should I do gym and focus on Benchpress and arms? Yes, I know 3-4 push-ups is pathetic. But I just need some help. :/
    If you need to know I weight 110kg (242lbs), I'm 6"4' and I am 16.


    I don't usually use BMI because it is a bit misleading, but in this case it looks like you wouldn't hurt from losing a little weight if you aren't caring a lot of muscle. (Which I assume you aren't)

    Though, I can't tell because I don't know BF%.

    Who mentioned an MRI?

    Wasn't me, thats probably because an MRI would be useless. You can't augment bone structure and yield decent results. Nor is an MRI a cost effective option for evaluating muscle tissue.

    Its important to know body type, muscle fiber type (fast:slow twitch ratios), height. You don't tell a sprinter the best way to improve is to lift weights, as it doesn't make sense for their muscle type. You tell them to increase their oxidative threshold, their lactic acid threshold, likely via isometrics. Different muscles respond to different things. He seems to be looking for the fast and effective route. Hes not going to get it without information.

    Human =/= Human


    This is important, you should do a little reading and tailor it to work for you. I can only do about 30 push-ups despite having mostly type IIa muscle fibers, because of my shoulders, and as a result I have tailored it so it puts less stress on my joints. (Standing push ups/pull ups as a substitute)

    Also, going off what I said previously, if you are carrying a fair amount of muscle and have decent strength, then this wouldn't be a strength issue so much as an endurance issue. Most places I have seen have said just work up to where you can do thirty reps of an exercise for building endurance so go until you can't and work your way up there.


    Quote from arcus360

    If you are only trying to focus on push-ups, try doing your push-ups in "sets" of four. After each set, give yourself thirty seconds to recover, and then do your next set. Stop once you have done three sets. As you get stronger, gradually increase either the number of sets that you do or the number of push-ups in each set. Push yourself; always make sure that your sets are challenging enough that you are breathing heavily after each one. By the end of your last set, you should be totally exhausted.



    This isn't correct, you should experience that feeling of muscle fatigue, (but not pain) not necessarily need to be breathing hard.


    Quote from AstroGnome

    Well, the best way to do more pushups is to, well, do more pushups. Just make sure you're doing them exactly right. If you really want to make it hard, get your dictionary/encyclopedia volume S/large weight and set it on your back. That's what I've done to get mine up for fencing.

    Note that I'm 14 though, so this may or may not work for you.


    No one else had mentioned this but it's very important.

    Anyway, this is my 2c.

    Quote from pwntpants

    Lol, I don't think we really need to have a proper definition of "fruit"... this was really intended to be a basic question. Just, fruit. Whatever is generally accepted as a 'fruit.'
    Apples
    Bananas
    Watermelon
    Grapefruit
    Oranges
    Strawberries
    etc.

    I didn't think there really would be a need to have to define things in a simplistic hypothetical question like this one :P


    Well, some things like, tomatoes and peppers, are considered a fruit. Also potatoes I believe are considered roots.

    Quote from Shpaget

    Human digestive system is not capable of providing all the necessary nutrients from purely herbivorous diet.

    Add a bit (not too small bit) of meat to the veggies and I'll take that approach.


    This is wrong, but whatever.

    What definition of fruit are we using as well?

    I'm underweight. My BMI is 17.


    BMI doesn't really matter...


    I have been diagnosed with:

    Aspergers/PDD-NOS
    Conduct Disorder
    ADD
    Oppositional defiant disorder

    I believe I may have Mild ASPD as well but it cannot be diagnosed until you are 18. (May be a mild sociopath basically)

    That's ridiculous advice! Not everyone can afford a £100,000 home! :o

    OT: Don't have your music so loud, I'd go down to my neighbour and do the same thing if he was playing music that loud. Technically, you were invading his privacy with the music being so loud. You were in the wrong.


    I was saying I don't live in an apartment as if to say I'm not the best person to comment on this. You had a bit of a reading failure.

    I pissed off an Avo fan who happened to have a small botnet at his command, so there's some slight issues in the network department.

    Stay tuned for more.


    Anyone going to counter this?

    We just had a person from our complex open OUR apartment door and demand we turn the music down.

    Let me clarify something, this man invaded MY home and told me what to do.

    Not only were you lucky I didn't beat your ass right then and there, you're lucky I didn't have a weapon.

    Filed a complaint with the office, and filed a police report.


    What would you have done?


    Don't live in an apartment, but depending on the complex they actually may have the right to do that if they are staff of the complex.

    posted a message on Is Minecraft bad for my laptop?
    Quote from GuidedWings

    Well in order for you to find that out go ask yourself this: Is my computer meant for gaming?

    However it is bad for your computer memory wise. If your going to be downloading custom maps and mods it can take a big chunk of your computer. I downloaded hundreds of Custom maps and it took a big 30gb of memory. So really it depends on what you do.


    Wat?

    All that is doing is using space on your hard-drive which is what it's supposed to do...
