    Ahhh! That makes lots of sense. :) Thanks for clarifying. Endurance athletes like Crossfitters do train for long periods. Still, I suggest keeping track of your weights, reps, sets, etc. to make sure you're making progress and don't hit plateaus or regress.

    If you don't mind me asking, why lift for 2+hours 4 days/week? Sounds like a high volume body builder-type split routine, amirite? :confused: I don't know any fighter or strength athlete who trains that much. :eek:

    Speaking for myself, I have unique dietary needs because of my highly active lifestyle-as I've already explained. To get all the protein I need, it's cheaper and more efficient to supplement than eat 12 eggs/day or something. Even vegan athletes supplement, bro.

    You should get them to change the OP, then. And you should reread AF's post and my post. We were discussing reparations, and how if someone is going to go with the simplistic view that "the whites" owe "the blacks" money for past crimes relating to slavery, then it should cancel out because "the whites" are the reason there are no longer "black" slaves in the US. It was a tongue in cheek thing, but you've been twisting it over twenty times to Tuesday until you're convinced I'm saying slavery was okay and rapists should be rewarded. Reparations --- as in the stuff the original post is about --- are people who do not hold slaves having to pay people who have never been slaves, due to the sins of their ancestors. In most cases you're not even going to be able to reliably prove bloodlines. Moreover, there are groups who say ALL darker-skinned people suffer at the hands of the lighter-skinned due to the echos of slavery, so they are all owed reparations, regardless of their history. It's ridiculous. What would I do to someone who repeatedly raped me, tortured me, and held me against my will? I would count myself particularly lucky and clever to have gotten away, make sure that it isn't going to happen again, and disappear to multiple places at once so I'm never found.

    There aren't any old burned out buildings in the town I live in. Those get torn down before they get that far. Detroit has a specific history as an industrial hub and now it's simply not that hub at all. The improvements you've listed are largely superficial projects or tax fund money pits that have a positive and shiny effect on the areas immediately around them. There might be some long term resettlement that establishes a real upward trend in lifestyle and standard of living, but plopping a revamped stadium into a huge city is not going to do it. You are simply not paying attention if you think Detroit is the only big city to be pointed out as having extensive problems. You've never seen people speak about Baltimore here? LA? NYC? Chicago? Atlanta? Dallas? DC? And no, I don't want to go to Detroit. I've been there a couple of times, and I'm not interested in returning for any reason. It was years ago but nothing drives me to go back. That's kind of the problem, isn't it. It's a personal decision on my part --- I tend to love certain temperatures, a certain amount of wilderness, a good amount of space, a lack of crowding whenever I want to get away --- but obviously others have come to similar conclusions for their own reasons. I would rather invest, build, teach, and help around where I already want to live.

    No, imagine that your great-grandfather did those things to my great-grandmother and you suddenly decided to pay for my kids' college tuition. That would be a much better analogy. Now imagine someone felt a need to legislate that you pay for the college tuition for any kids I might have because of your great-grandfather's actions (which cannot be directly proven and which were performed by someone you never even met). Oh and don't presume what I'd do in that situation. You've also developed amnesia as well as changed your entire style, syntax, and viewpoints.

    They will be super excited to learn that the Highland Clearances were an exciting, entirely voluntary process that boils down to "fleeing famine." As for the "paying the price and being released," black slaves could also buy their own freedom, so by your earlier logic they were also not slaves because they could purchase themselves. Why not own them outright and be done with the charade of making them think they can purchase themselves from their masters? It was a carrot that could be dangled. How many people actually bought out their contracts or their families? How many, after doing so, prospered? It was the slimmest, barest chance. The superficial view of history is that all blacks were in fetters with criss-crossing whip marks all the way up until the Proclamation, then they were suddenly free and everything rolled on with consistent and unified toil to where they are today. I don't understand how that's not insulting to all parties involved, but you seem to have bought in. Coffin ships had a death rate of a little under 30% of their passengers. They were often shut down below without proper ventilation, particularly in storms. They were not tended to when ill. When they died, they were heaved overboard for the sharks. Slave ships had a death rate of approximately 15-30% depending on where you look, as they sailed across the Middle Passage. There were whips and chains but the rest of what I wrote above also applies.

    Good point. If we're going to regress to the oversimplified version of "all slaves were black, and all black people today suffer the echos of black slavery in the USA," then we should remedy it with "Lincoln and other whites freed the slaves and passed the legislation that restored all of those rights that were revoked by their forefathers." Neither is true, but they do kind of cancel out in a stupid way.

    Yup. This^^ is why everyone has to figure out the macronutrients their specific bodies need. Bodybuilders, coaches, and athletes I know personally reckon 1g protein/ pound of body weight-some as high as 1.5.

    You think wrong. I chose a high-fat/high protein/high veggie diet because I'm very active. It supports my lifestyle. I learned it from coaches and trainers before it was trendy. It fucking WORKS. :cool: :D Science and experience trumps bullshit put out by militant vegans and Big Agra (whose lobby exercises massive control over FDA and the faux science published in MSM) for me any day. :)

    1. Your entire post structure, language use, and general signature has changed dramatically. Weird stuff. Hope you're feeling okay. 2. Do you know what a "coffin ship" is? ETA: 3. Do you know that some black slaves were allowed to buy their freedom as well? Being able to buy your own contract does not change the fact there's a contract to begin with. There were white slaves, just the same as there were black masters (which you yourself mentioned). There were also plenty of black people selling fellow black people into slavery. I would not say it was a racist institution originally, but it led to racism in that the common Colonial was raised with the vast majority of black people they came into contact with being property, therefore it was easier to think of them as lessers and dehumanize them. 4. A lot of white slaves were more of the legs-spread variety. It doesn't make them less a slave to call them a prostitute. They are owned, with no chance of buying freedom, and far less chance of a lovely life. Not all slaves were whipped.

    Yea man, I've been helping a lot of local businesses with my services, and having a lot of fun doing it. There's lots of demand for my services right now, thankfully.

    You're doing some travelling right now, right? Just curious how that's going.

    Cool man. Anyone who has such a solid understanding of Math, must have a decent head on their shoulders, even if they are a little nuts. Sometimes I think a few of the people that we regard as "nuts" just understand something that the rest of us don't.

    I have a lot of respect for the sciences. What kind of work do you hope to do with physics, in the future?

    Anyways, I'm nothing too special. Im a 25 year old self-employed businessman. I help businesses get leads and grow their consumer base, mostly with internet marketing strategies.

    To sum up my life, I'm just another evolved ape trying to find his place on this rock hurling through space. :-)

    Once again, sorry for the late response. I have a bad habit of forgetting to respond to wall posts. I think some people on facebook are starting to hate me for it, haha.

    So you are really dedicated to math, eh? I find it fascinating, and wish I paid more attention to it in school. Everything in nature seems to have some sort of mathematical pattern to it.

    So, What is it you do for a living? Are you a physicist or something along those lines?

In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful.

The greater the state, the more wrong and cruel its patriotism, and the greater is the sum of suffering upon which its power is founded.

Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.

- Leo Tolstoy
