Drama in r/movies as users accuse the mods of being Marvel shills and deleting all DC comics related articles. Surely not even Hollywood could cook up a conspiracy like this? by dynamoJaff in SubredditDrama

[–]emmster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As a huge Marvel cinematic universe fan, I am surprisingly not burned out on it. Yeah, they’re cranking out 3-4 movies and a Netflix series every year, but I’m still lapping it up, because they continue to be really good.

I don’t know how long they’ll keep it up, but I’m happy to keep watching as long as they are.

One user takes a stand against soy sauce by VodkaBarf in SubredditDrama

[–]emmster 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I think they’re referring to the fact that most US made soy sauce is more wheat than soy, and isn’t fermented the way Asian soy sauces usually are. We get the quick and easy version.

Well, they’re sort of “not exactly wrong” about the breathing thing. Yes, you lose mass through respiration, but how much mass is lost is affected by not just calorie intake, but also calorie output, which is increased by, y’know, exercise.

This sounds less like a diet than an eating disorder, though.

Why I Quit Beachbody Coaching by KingMarshall111 in antiMLM

[–]emmster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Beach Body gave me my very favorite Hun Moment.

She was trying to sell me on the program, and asked me what I was already doing. I answered honestly; diabetic exchange diet recommended by my doctor due to a high risk family history, running because I enjoy it, and a strength training circuit at the gym.

Other than the fairly straightforward “running,” she didn’t know what these things were.

You’re a “health coach,” and you don’t know what circuit training and diabetic exchange are?!

No Thanks, I'll Take My Chances with McDonald's by MrFishpaw in antiMLM

If I buy the Herbalife “program,” I still have to buy food, though? Because I’m pretty sure that’s all supplements.

Yeah, those are on the dollar menu in the states.

GPS not working - not tracking at all - any ideas? by Carausius286 in Runner5

[–]emmster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I pretty much keep mine on step tracking because I run on a treadmill when the weather sucks, and I’ll forget to switch it back and forth. If you measured your stride accurately, it actually works great.

What is the least inspiring cooking-based thing someone has said to you? by theonlydjorkaeff1 in Cooking

[–]emmster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In college, housemate and I spent 12 hours making her grandmother’s spaghetti sauce. It was a real labor of love, because it was long and complex, but we both liked long project recipes.

Served it up to our other two housemates, and one of them declared it was so good it tasted “just like the stuff in the jar!”

Hello Runners 5. I've just recently joined Abel Township and am looking for advice on a couple of topics... by DarkPrincess_ in Runner5

[–]emmster 7 points8 points  (0 children)

If you have a running shoe store that will put you on a treadmill barefoot and analyze your gait, that’s the way to choose shoes. Because the best shoe depends on what part of your foot strikes ground first, whether you roll your feet inward or outward, how high your arch is, etc. Personally, I’m loyal to Mizuno, but that may be different for you.

As for warmups and injury prevention, stretch regularly. There’s debate on whether you should or shouldn’t stretch immediately before running, or if a short walk is warmup enough. I find my performance is better if I stretch before, after, and at least once even on rest days.

Don’t run through real pain. A little tightness in your muscles is okay. A little burning sensation is normal, but if it hurts, take a break. Walk until it doesn’t hurt to run again. ZR5K is going to start you off pretty light, like 15 seconds at a time. Try to double the speed drill run time during the free form run to be ready for the next week. If they tell you to run 15 seconds, try to get 30 seconds, if they tell you one minute, try to get two in the free form.

Even if you walk the whole free-form run the first couple of weeks, you’ll still progress. Do what you can, and don’t get discouraged if you can’t do five minutes right off the bat. You’ll be doing ten easily soon enough.

And remember, even if you’re slow, you’re running circles around everybody who’s sitting on the couch!

One user in /r/morbidquestions is convinced a 10 year old should "take responsibility for her role in luring an older man into sex", does not react well when told that's insane by tommy2014015 in SubredditDrama

[–]emmster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s a fairly normal thing in most US states, too. They call them “Romeo and Juliet” laws. It’s not illegal for people within a few years of the same age to have sex, even if one or both are minors. The panic people get into over a 17 and 18 year old are uninformed hypotheticals.

[Serious] Should elderly people be forced to take tests regarding their motor vehicle operating abilities and mental fitness and get their motor vehicle license(s) revoked if they fail the test(s)? Why/why not? by ChrisGer98 in AskReddit

[–]emmster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It can be even younger if you’re in certain rural areas. I think 13 is the lowest I’ve seen. They qualify it as a “hardship” situation if you have to get to school, but live where even school buses don’t run.

Gaining 45lb feels better than I'd thought by [deleted] in pics

It’s a direct result. Hair is absolutely affected by your nutritional status.

Sunday debriefing - April 01, 2018 - post your mission reports here! by AutoModerator in Runner5

[–]emmster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m coming back to running after being sidelined by an injury followed by a really bad bout of adenovirus. Using ZR5K to build back up. Call it a “flashback scene,” since I’ve been a player since this was a Kickstarter project. :) Maybe I’ll just re-run the whole thing in proper chronological order. It really does have a lot of replay value. You catch things you missed first time around.

I voted for Clinton. But I’m in a red state, so it didn’t count. Yay, electoral college.

What one product screams "I'm trashy" more than anything? by [deleted] in AskReddit

[–]emmster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The redneck-est girl in my freshman dorm got a Tweety tattoo on her thigh. Upside down. So she could see it the right way, but everybody else had to look at a poorly executed topsy turvy bird.

I’ve come to accept that I’m never going to understand the Minion thing. Henchmen for the villain in a kids’ movie are the chosen mouthpiece for right wing baby boomers. Sure. Fuck it, it’s 2018, nothing else makes sense either.

Girls of reddit who have rejected people, what’s the worst way someone has taken it? by aj11783 in AskReddit

Yeah, the following is pretty scary. I had one try to get in my car after hitting on me in a parking lot. I’m glad I’m quick with the door lock button.

Many years ago when I waited tables, I had one of these large rotating parties. I’m almost sure I kept the right kids’ orders with the right parents, maybe. :)

The 100% tip was so worth it.

What's the worst example of poor financial choices you've witnessed? by teakwood54 in AskReddit

[–]emmster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

An acquaintance of mine stopped at Walmart on his way to a cookout, and had his car broken into. They took four pounds of raw chicken. That’s probably at least as weird as half a pie.

Is anyone really surprised by Toby’s flash forward? by dizzy_unicorn in thisisus

[–]emmster 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bipolar doesn’t seem to fit. Being funny and bubbly is not the same as an actual manic episode. His “ups” seem very normal, and not like mania. What we’ve seen is more classic major depressive disorder.
