Re: Oh my goodness! Can this be? (re: Banned)

China, like everywhere, has its pluses and its minuses. Thanks, I thoroughly enjoyed this post!  Your perspective was a lot of fun to read. I'm glad you made your way back onto the forum.  Hopefully you made sure that you weren't being followed by any suspicious-looking hacker types.  :) I was thin...

Re: New study: United States fares poorly in comparison with other rich countries

This shows the NYTimes' bias so well. Looking at the actual data shows that while car accidents were indeed the #1 killer, "gun violence" is far down the list and drug overdoses are nowhere to be seen: Oops, looks like they forgot about heart disease and cancer. What awful reporting, and what awful...

Re: The Permanent Hypertrophy Regime

Hah, yup!  I've been in the iron game for a long time, so I'm pretty familiar with everything that's out there.  I'm going to see if I have the stick-withitude to stay on the 531 for one year and see how much progress I can make.  I'm in cycle II now. Sweet, you can't go wrong there!  I did 10 cycl...

Re: The Permanent Hypertrophy Regime

This is a great article.  I've had it bookmarked for a while now.  Question for a gym noob - is it possible to do any of those compound exercises without a spotter?  The biggest hurdle I have to strength training is that it's difficult if not impossible in this busy time to find someone who is will...

Re: Rebalancing... Hormones?

Good news. I started getting 8 hours of sleep for the past week and I've been having segmented sleep and remembering my dreams. Awesome!!  Does this mean that you found yourself falling into the segmented sleep pattern naturally or did you have to nudge yourself in that direction with other aids li...

Re: Rebalancing... Hormones?

Wait, are you sure that you mean 750 mg of melatonin ?  Holy cow, that is one serious dose!  Even 25 mg is a very large amount.  I take more like 0.75mg-1.5mg if I've had some caffeine and need to get to sleep. Oops, I meant mcg!  :D LOL, cool.  The highest I've gone was 3 mg at bedtime in order to...

Re: Rebalancing... Hormones?

No tolerance that I'm aware of, but I do take 2 days off a week.  I recently tried a new brand and a higher dose (750mg) than what the pineal gland releases naturally and the expected drowsiness has gone away after about a week, so maybe there is tolerance at higher than physiologic doses or the al...

Re: Rebalancing... Hormones?

I will buy it and compare it to the melatonin supplement. Have you used melatonin long-term?  I don't employ it often, and only do so in low doses (<4 mg per week), but I was curious if you had any thoughts on whether tolerance builds up over time.  I hadn't seen strong evidence of it but did run a...

Re: Rebalancing... Hormones?

Very true. Another interesting factoid about segmented sleep is that many people chose to fornicate during their wakeful period between their first and second sleep. I suppose the surge in prolactin had a lot to do with that. Almost makes you wonder if that's how our species traditionally got 'in t...

Re: Are we living inside a computer simulation?

Fun, fun thread.  :) Who is to say that religion and science cannot both be right?  I do believe that it is possible that the technological singularity will occur, and we might be able to make most humans on this planet immortal.  Technological breakthroughs in food cultivation (lab grown meat, etc)...

Re: Rebalancing... Hormones?

So, we might hypothesize that a lifetime of segmented sleep and heightened awakeness cycles would be producing some seriously vivid and meaningful dreams? It's no wonder people were more religious back then — people likely felt much more spiritual  with those kinds of daily experiences. Yes, that's...

Re: Rebalancing... Hormones?

If you look at the reviews, you'll notice that many of the users of these $8 glasses are experiencing some major melatonin surges. You put those babies on and before long you feel like turning in for the night without the usual cortisol interference. Ha!  I am loving the idea of these glasses... bu...
