Well the face should listen... Especially when the face is borrowing comebacks from 90's sitcoms.

What's the matter? Too many "science-y" words for you?

Tell you what... contact me privately and I'll give you the "abdominal exercises for dummies" version. Maybe then you could post an actual picture of yourself as an avatar and not some idealization of a 14 year old's wet dream from 1989.

Fuck off!

What you are describing is actually 100% vertebral movement. Do you know what vertebrae are?

Oh wait... Your mom told you this? And she's a "doc"? Well then, let's all listen because we all know general practitioners have extensive knowledge when it comes to exercise techniques....

What you're describing is just a sit up. By putting your legs up on a chair, all you are doing is decreasing the range of motion while immobilizing the pelvis so all the movement is accomplished by the lumbar vertebrae. So you are actually minimizing the work done by the rectus abdominus, while maximizing the risk to the spine.

Doing crunches with your legs up on a chair is fine, but doing full sit ups in that position keeps the risk the same but decreases the reward.

Dammit... I swore I wasn't going to weigh in on these types of threads....

blah blah blah

Talk to the hand, cos the face ain't listening

I'm now on the 2nd half of season eight. The scene where the walkers get chulped up in the car grinder thing was a bit yucky! Also, I was upset when the tiger died crybaby

I'm quite interested to see where the rest of the season will go, cos it feels like it's entered a new phase with Carl dead.

I have been shot at. It wasn't any fun. The feeling was not all that different from this:

“Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.” -- Samuel Johnson

Not all teachers should be armed. But there are teachers who would respond appropriately and effectively in a situation like Parkland or Newtown. Some of them are police and/or combat veterans. I feel like those teachers should not be put in the position where they have no other option but to throw their bodies in between the threat and their students.

So..... require teachers to be armed? Not a good idea. Not happening either.

Allow some teachers to volunteer who have been properly vetted and trained? I really don't see a down side. It could parallel the TSA's Federal Flight Deck Officer program.

Some have also floated the idea of having volunteers from the community who have the requisite mind set, experience and training to patrol school hallways. There are multiple ideas of how we could change things so that our schools weren't such soft tempting targets.

You do realize, if folks wish for America's gun owners to give something up and compromise on what they hold dear, the other side is going to have to accept some things that they don't agree with as well.

Arming teachers and community volunteers to patrol schools? The USA is going to hell on a hand cart!

You'll never get more. They have no ideas, they only have an agenda. They don't actually want to do anything substantive to lower the crime rate, lower the murder rate, or prevent crimes. All they want is to disarm people. They know that disarming people won't do anything to prevent crimes from happening. They don't actually care about crime or murder. They only care about how much control they can wield over people. It's sad, really. They just don't understand the concept of holding people accountable for their actions.

A drunk driver kills a pedestrian - they blame the drunk driver.
An incompetent physician kills a patient - they blame the physician.
A bad cop kills an innocent person - they blame the cop.
A criminal shoots up a school - they blame the gun.

Not true. I still blame the criminal.

I understand that people need to be accountable for their actions and a gun doesn't have any means of destruction without human agency, but that's just unrealistic.

The point is, a gun gives someone the option of killing a lot more people than would a sharpened pencil, a baseball bat or a knife.

Healthy or not, I just love apples. Got a bag right now that i use for snacks and to add to lunches. Macs this time but Empire (cross of Mac and Red Delicious) are actually my fave. I also eat a lot of citrus, with grapefruit being my fave.

I like Braeburn apples, but they have to be peeled. I find apple skin totally inedible.

Well said sir! The real question is how do we stop these atrocities! I'm not sure there are any simple fixes as some pointed out it's become a cultural problem. I'm all for hearing imput other than lets just take all the guns from everyone. That's only a patch for the real problem here .

You know what, it isn't a patch for the real problem. Guns ARE the real problem and if you think otherwise, you need to have a word with yourself!

So for children your answer is to take the weapon away? I'll ignore the part where you said you would beat the child... and then beat the dad as well... Assuming you even could. I imagine someone who needs to make strangers on the internet thinks he's a rootin' tootin' tough guy probably isn't. In fact, you sound like an old guy who might break a hip walking to the toilet... But let me get back to the point...

So for children your answer is to take the weapon away? But not for adults? Why does arming every kid with a club not make all the kids safer but arming all adults with a gun does make society safer in your opinion?

He should print this off and frame it!

You are right you will never probably get it because of being raised in a different culture. Amnesty you say, hum while a novel idea it would just never work here. Sure the good law abiding people would turn them over but the criminals would not, thus creating an even more dangerous problem to the average household. What's not reported is all the honest hard working people that enjoy shooting sports, hunting and being able to protect themselves from thugs that would do harm. Criminals and gangs will always get guns just as surely as drugs pour across the boarders even though there illegal.
Remember it was us wild west americans that died by the 100s of thousands right beside you Brits to keep you from tyranny 70 years ago and would do so again. When Japan considered attacking the united states there biggest fear was they knew every house back then held a gun and they said it would be suicide to fight on this soil. Yes times have changed since then but when you take away a persons freedom to protect oneself you step one step closer to total control.

Have a blessed day and thank you for your thoughts on the matter : )

I have a number of American friends on here, so don't want to upset anyone, and it's totally not personal but this needs to be said.

People wanting to own guns - it's really weird.

This is the 21st century, not the wild west. The right to bear arms is totally ridiculous. The rest of the western world just doesn't get it!

This type of atrocity will happen again and again and again and again until American society and their government sort it out.

By 'sort it out' I mean have an amnesty now, where you take your guns and have them crushed and then make owning them (apart from a few exceptional reasons) illegal.
