Workout schedule:

Mon: heavy upper (bench)
Tues: heavy lower (deadlift)
Thurs: upper (OHP)
Fri: lower (squat)

Upper days finish with strongman stuff (loaded carries, etc), lowers finish with rucks. Friday rucks can be longer/heavier due to the extra rest days til the next workout.

It's a nice schedule, flexible and adaptable to a lot of different regimens.

Here's something most people might not know about:
In today's urban planning in most of the USA and Europe, there is a huge focus put on increasing the average citizen's 'calories burned'. This is one of the paradigms for making a healthy city: working walking or biking in to the daily habits of the citizens.

On one hand, this paradigms does contributing to building more walkable and bikable cities. But to me it's ablist and also anti fat... And, for a person in an electric wheelchair: calories burned is actually relating to battery power needed. For people with mobility issues, decreasing the calories needed to navigate is actually healthier.

aworkoutroutine.com/ this is the best no-bullshit guide to setting up a workout routine. Literally, you will absolutely not go wrong following it, no matter your level of ability or stage of training.

If that's not the last straw, I don't know what is. Twitter suspending you for telling a literal nazi account they are "poo poo heads"?

@Pookleblinky Twitter already can filter out nazis perfectly well. It would literally take a few lines of code to give that filter to everyone. It doesn't, because that would kill their business model.

Did you know that twitter literally has an is_nazi attribute, withheld_in_countries indicates whether the tweet contains nazi content that it literally illegal in Germany and France.

I don't masto often enough, ugh

Back on irc for shits n giggles


The Shell egg in Chicken does a lot of what I am looking for. Short commands, nice syntax, can output as a string of normal bash, etc.

You know what fad I'm glad is over btw?


Holy fuck half the people in my circles would NOT STOP FUCKING TALKING ABOUT THEM FOR LIKE 2 YEARS.

Then their dasKeyboards broke and they quit talking about them.


The creator of Rash and shell-pipeline *also* hasn't touched an actual scsh in years due to its bitrot.

I want to be able to open a repl, brainfart a one-liner, see it as idiomatic bash, preview its output, plop it into a script for reuse, etc.

There are a couple other attempts at modernizing scsh, but as I said I don't want or need a new shell.

Anyway, I don't want to make a shell. I don't feel like moving to a shell less powerful than zsh or fish.

What I want is to be able to script with racket, interactively or not, instead of fish script.

Note: scsh is basically bitrotten nowadays. Last touched in 2006? It'd be nice to use it as a reference point, but I can't install it from the repo or from scratch (I tried).

Next I raco installed docs.racket-lang.org/scripty/i scripty, which lets you specify dependencies in a preamble under the shebang, and docs.racket-lang.org/shell-pip, which does what it says on the tin.

First, I had to add plt to my ppa list, because my default racket version is 5.4 and the modern is 6.8.

Then, gritted my teeth as it installed via http. What the fuck. At least now I have racket 6.8
