But does it matter?

I'm Richard Nikoley. Free The Animal began in 2003 and as of 2021, contains 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from health, diet, and food to travel and lifestyle; to politics, social antagonism, expat-living location and time independent—while you sleep—income. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. Read More

    Either way, hot! Doing a planche pushup has been a goal of mine for awhile, but that takes it to another level.

      I’m most of the way to full planche pushups after working at it for over a year, and… That guy’s not even doing a planche.

      Another level my ass, he’s got his body posted on his elbows. I forget what that position is called but every kid in the theater club back in highschool was able to do that on the edge of the stage. The theater club.

      I’m more impressed with the girl.

        “That guy’s not even doing a planche.”

        Can you do a proper one with level of distraction? More important question: would you want to?

        Hey, if it works, it works!

    This is my goal for 2013.

    I’m thankful I have a gal who can do her part in my madness.

    Also, everything a man does is foreplay. Everything.

        Mike B

        See the title of my next post…and before I even knew of the first John Mellencamp reference in my comments ever.

        Big fan since 8th grade wish he would stay out of politics though

      Leon Rover.

      It might interest you to know that I recently had a lengthy email back & forth with an old church lady who was a teacher at our Fundamentalist Baptist Christian School like 30-40 years ago.

      She read some of my blog and wondered whereof comes my vulgarity.

      I told her I learned of the delight of it via MT, in the required English Lit reading at the school.

      To her credit, she came back citing Martin Luther, clarifying that it was still not her cup of tea.

      Life is a joy, every now and then, eh?

        Hmm, “Fundament” was Victorian English used intead of Anglo-Saxon “Arse” and American “Ass”.

        The serendipity of association strike again – MT’s mind &matter – mind & body – latest Economist on “PsychoSomatic Medecine”. An interesting article on the vagal nerve beloved by Jack “Mother Evolution” Kruse.

        “Think yourself well.
        You can. But it helps to think well of yourself in the first place”
        . . . . .
        “More generally, doctors in the ancient world had a saying: “a healthy mind IN a healthy body”. This sort of work suggests that though this proverb is true, a better one might be, “a healthy mind FOR a healthy body”.”

        We have always been mind & body. The first task (in the Western world because the Easterners have seemed to place the false dichotomy in reasonable context) is to toss of smart morons..

        Just Do It.

        …Yea, plug for my latest post and no comment action, yet.

    The remarkable thing is he’s never even met that woman, he came across her in that position and thought “What the hell …”

    • Richard Nikoley on December 7, 2012 at 13:14


      If that’s the case, best pickup ever.

  5. Contemplationist on December 7, 2012 at 13:17

    That can’t be good for that girl’s spine

      You’ve clearly never practiced yoga.
