--2014 New Years Resolutions -- 7 RULES To FIND a Decent GYM-- "I watch these movies and I start thinking about actually working out. But the problem is you can't just JOIN A GYM anymore.
People these days have to join the gym where they have the new Super Boxing Workout where you actually get knocked out once a day, stop going to a gym entirely and do yoga, go to European gyms, Japanese gyms, or Hindu gyms. It's like the idea of "working out"--JUST working out--is old-fashioned."
Now you have to work out a the newest, hippest, most up-to-date joint in town. With this in mind, I thought I would pass along my own rules for finding a decent gym.:
First of all - don't work out at any gym that doesn't have at least ten guys with actual knife scars on their bodies. Otherwise, it's not a real gym. At a real gym, people USE their bodies. They don't work out to make their bodies LOOK good. Big difference.
Second-- go over to the barbell rack, and see what's the largest weight they have. If it's a real gym, they'll have some of those 150-pound HAND weights, the kind that only three guys in the history of the universe have been able to use.
Third--- ask em if they have aerobics classes. If the answer is "Yes," leave immediately. Not a real gym.
Numero Four-o--- If anybody is wearing PASTEL gym clothes, get out of there. In real gyms, the only acceptable colors are brown, dark gray and black (including black SOCKS.) And the most popular uniform is the high school basketball team workout jersey that hasn't been washed in 15 years.
Rule number five----- A real gym will always have signs on the wall that are totally disgusting.
Like "NO SPITTING IN THE FOUNTAIN" and "TRAIN AT YOUR OWN RISK," and "DO NOT THROW WEIGHTS AGAINST THE WALL."
Rule six------ The bench press must always be a life-threatening experience. For those of you not
familiar with it, the bench press is where you lie on your back and raise a piece of iron directly
over your skull that, if you drop it, could put a dent in your brain about four inches deep. The object
is to raise this weight up and down until your arms are totally exhausted, so that, one-half second BEFORE you drop it on your brain, your "partner" can grab it and put it back on the rack.
At a REAL gym, the partner always waits until one-FOURTH second before you suffer permanent brain damage--to get that extra "benefit" from the last rep.
Rule numbero seven-o------: At a real gym, if somebody yells "Telephone for Manny!" at least eight guys should go to the phone.

Following Commentary by Me: Journeyman Jack In Ecuador - "JJIE"
Funny -- Now that I may or may not have your attention-- Here is another New Years Resolution to consider, on a more serious note, following up on Joe Bob's analysis of: Mad Max 2 Road Warrior:
The Road Warrior is a post-apocalyptic action thriller film from 1981 directed by Australian director George Miller, this sequel to Miller's 1979 film Mad Max was a worldwide box office success that launched the career of lead actor Mel Gibson.
It is amazing to me how often times "Art (drama / theatre) Imitates real life events" or -- Predictive Programming: is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by TPTB.
If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as natural progressions thus lessening any possible public resistance and commotion.
Predictive programming therefore may be considered as a veiled form of preemptive mass manipulation or mind control, courtesy of our puppet masters.

Mad Max: "I'm the best chance you got."
So you may ask yourself what is this Guy getting at? - talking about? .:FUKUSHIMA:. Since 11 MAR 2011 for nearly 3 years:
#25 The Japanese government has estimated that approximately 300 tons of highly radioactive water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility every single day.
--Pacific Ocean Currents- from NASA (NGDC) In the North Pacific, the Kuroshio current flows eastwards across the Pacific from Japan to the coast of North America, where it turns south as the California current, then flows west again as the north equatorial current. --
#29 It is being projected that significant levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific Ocean by the year 2020.
#32 The Iodine-131, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 that are constantly being released from Fukushima are going to affect the health of those living in the northern hemisphere for a very, very long time. Just consider what Harvey Wasserman had to say about this:
Iodine-131, for example, can be ingested into the thyroid, where it emits beta particles (electrons) that damage tissue. A plague of damaged thyroids has already been reported among as many as 40 percent of the children in the Fukushima area. That percentage can only go higher. In developing youngsters, it can stunt both physical and mental growth. Among adults it causes a very wide range of ancillary ailments, including cancer.
Cesium-137 from Fukushima has been found in fish caught as far away as California. It spreads throughout the body, but tends to accumulate in the muscles.
Strontium-90’s half-life is around 29 years. It mimics calcium and goes to our bones.
#34 According to the Wall Street Journal, it is being projected that the cleanup of Fukushima could take up to 40 years to complete.
#36 There are very alarming reports that new “unexplained plumes of radioactive steam” are rising at Fukushima. Japanese officials are not able to get inside and see what is causing these plumes. Some are speculating that the crisis at Fukushima just got a whole lot worse. The following is from a recent Ecologist article:
Unexplained plumes of radioactive steam have been rising from Fukushima’s Reactor Building 3, Could a major meltdown be on the way?
Fukushima’s Reactor Building 3 exploded on 13th March 2011 as a result of a hydrogen buildup, breaching the building’s containment and emitting a huge plume of radiation. The reactor itself is in meltdown.
And now fresh plumes of steam have been seen coming out the structure. These have now been confirmed by Tepco, the owner of the nuclear plant, from 19 DEC 2013 onwards. The company believes the steam is coming from the fifth floor of the building.
However it does not know the cause of the steam. Lethal levels of radiation and the physical damage to the structure have so far made entry and inspection impossible.
If a full-blown meltdown does happen at Fukushima, it would be an environmental disaster unlike anything that we have ever seen before in human history.
As we enter 2014 and approach the 3 yr Anniversary 11 MAR 2014 of Fukushima, I humbly ask you to research - search engine - Google: Fukushima for yourself and begin to think about getting out of the Northern Hemisphere.
There are many viable options in the Southern Hemisphere besides South America, Ironic that the Mad Max Road Warrior Films were Set & Filmed in Australia and that could be a viable relocation option for a while, same longitude as Japan but well South of the atmospheric fallout in Northern Hemisphere, and could be a while before the South Pacific Ocean Equatorial Countercurrent is breached.
South Africa is in a good geographical position, and of Course the South American Countries of Argentina - Uruguay - Paraguay - Brazil - Chile - Peru and a good bit of Ecuador.
Only about 15% of Ecuador's Land Mass lies North of the Equator. If you were to consider Ecuador you may want to Look at Towns & City's well below the equatorial line: 400km Macas - 500km Cuenca - 600km Loja - 700km Vilcabamba.
As for the Coast of Ecuador we have the Humboldt Current turning counter clockwise just below the equatorial line. Beginning In the fishing Villiage of Jama & Southwards you can begin to feel these strong effects in the climate & the currents of the Pacific Ocean.--
--Pacific Ocean Currents- from NASA (NGDC) In The Southern Pacific Ocean has a counterclockwise subtropical gyre , consisting of the westward flowing South equatorial current in the north, the southwards flowing Australia current, the Antarctic circumpolar current that flows east, and the Peru Current that flows northwards near South America. --
Moving to the Southern Hemisphere and or South America - Ecuador is not a 100% fool proof plan to totally avoid the atmospheric wind currents & ocean currents spreading radiation contamination and exposure.
If the International community could come Together and assist and or take over the clean up process from TEPCO / JAPAN before it breaches the equatorial line and enters the South, it could buy you another 5 - 10 years of much less radiation exposure than remaining in the Northern Hemisphere.
