Modern Dionysus: Making Your Own Pizza
Pizza: if you don’t like it, I don’t like you. I recently found an article in Modern Dionysus about some tips for making your own pizza. See a snippet from the article below:
If there’s one thing I love in life, it’s pizza. I’ve delivered it, cooked it, eaten it, and critiqued it. In fact, I love pizza so much that I married an Italian so I could have a child that’s at least one-quarter pizza. What makes pizza so awesome is that it’s universally loved in so many forms—deep dish, New York style, cheese only, no cheese, stuffed crust, buttered crust, or no crust. Everyone has their own idea of the perfect pizza. That’s why making your own pizza is not only a great way to turn a routine dinner party with friends into a unique and fun experience, it’s also a great way to feel like a total boss in the kitchen.

Natural Supplements that Actually Work
During the never ending search for health in a pill America generally comes up short. Usually I ignore this type of thing and simply try to eat a reasonably healthy diet. Mostly whole foods, minimize sugar and processed, not too much beer and so on.
So when a colleague was enthusiastically touting these mainstream medically endorsed supplements I was not that interested. But he explained that his diet was TERRIBLE and that was why he supplemented with some of them.
So for those of you with a good diet – don’t feel too much need to consider them. But if your diet sucks as well, you may want to think about it. Here are the deals…

Survival during uncertain times.
While I’m not a full fledged ‘prepper’ I do believe in being ready for catastrophic events. In 2005 Hurricane Katrina demonstrated that necessity ruthlessly to the population of New Orleans.
It was the most expensive natural disaster in US history, as well as accounting for almost 2,000 lives.
It demonstrated that the Government (Federal , State and Local) are unable to help you in these situations and that you need to take care of yourself and your loved ones.
To that end I’m in the process of stocking up my cabin with supplies. I shopped around a little and in terms of taste, quality, convenience and price The Ready Store was my preferred source.

The Eternal Question: Are Sandals Ever Manly?
Sandals. Basically everyone owns a pair, but only a select few wear them on the reg’. So the question is: are sandals manly or not?
They are manly: Would you question the manliness of this Roman warrior group — Praetorian. Guards? It would not be wise.
These warriors were amongst the most elite soldiers of their time. What did they wear on their feet? Sandals. What’s more manly than feeling blood, earth, wind, and rain on your feet? Wearing sandals is not only practical for maintaining cool feet in the summer, but it’s a timeless style of shoe that historically predates any sneakers, boots, or whatever else you crazy kids are wearing these days. Sandals allow the feet to callous up and get tougher, rather than stay soft and pretty in those nice Italian leather shoes. Be a real man and get some sandals on.
Absolutely not manly: While it’s true that some manly guys have rocked sandals in the distant past, there’s something truly effeminate about showing off your feet. If you want to some callouses – walk around barefoot. There’s no need for sandals. I’m not advising you need to go Nixon-on-the-beach, but at the very minimum please limit the sandal use. Going to the beach – use Sandals. Going anywhere else and need some real shoes? No sandals. The utilitarian use of sandals is necessary – fair enough. But the world doesn’t need to see your nasty man feet.
How to Spot a Serial Killer
With ice water in their veins, and ever so charming smiles, psychopaths comprise anywhere from 0.6% to 4% of the total population. This personality disorder affects males more often than females. It’s well documented in societies around the globe.
The psychopaths brain is wired a little different to yours or mine. It has a smaller prefrontal cortex—the section that regulates behavior, impulse control, and planning—and a deformed amygdala, the home of negative emotions such as fear, guilt, and sadness.
You cannot tell externally who is a psychopath. So here are some tell tale signs.
Psychopathic Trait #1: Fearless Dominance
Try to imagine complete freedom from fear, anxiety, or guilt. You can act however you wish without the annoying controls of conscience, legal consequences, authority figures, or worrying about the happiness of others. You understand the rules of society; you just could not care less about them.
You’re also a master at hiding your cold-hearted self-confidence. Externally you’re charming, outgoing, charismatic, and convincing—people like you. You’re not a loner. You love control and power, which you get from these sheep that take this thing called responsibility seriously. But they’re far beneath you. These suckers should lose—they had it coming. You look out for yourself – and that’s it.
You also have absolutely no empathy and you’re free from emotionally dealing with the pain you inflict on people. You understand emotion intellectually, and you study it to learn how to act normally and what to say to get your way; you are a master manipulator. You ‘re like a color-blind person viewing the traffic lights. You know the upper light is “red,” and you know what to do about it, but you have no comprehension of what red really is.
Psychopathic Trait #2: Self-Centered Impulsivity
You act how you want, whenver you wish. You require stimulation and get bored very quickly. Sometimes you’ll drive intoxicated, steal from stores, start bar fights, humiliate fellow workers, roofie that chicks drink, or torture small animals just for the hell of it.
You’re also completely irresponsible. You don’t need to pay money back. You don’t go to work if you don’t want to. You may have a dishonorable discharge from the army.
Finally, you are very impulsive. You’ll quit a job, break relationships, drop out of study and have sex with many partners as you want, even if you’re in a relationship. Why? Because you want to. But this impulsivity also means you’re more likely to die in a violent accident, commit suicide, or get killed.
Psychopathic Trait #3: Low Autonomic Arousal
Your physiology is quite different from non-psychopathic people. Your resting heart-rate is lower, your skin temperature is lower, and the beat-to-beat changes in your heart-rate are not the same as the rest of the sheeplike population.
You’re cool as can be, even when others panic. When your girl is freaking out, this is when you are at your best. Your heart rate decreases when arguing with and beating up your partners. The pinacle of this was Hannibal Lechter – who’s heart rate never broke 85 even as he attacked a girl.
So here is the best example of psychopathy I’ve seen.
Eric Cartman from South Park. Cartman is a true psychopath.

What you need to know.
- The term “functional training” has been abused. Training with a purpose is what we are after;
- Trap bar deadlifts give all of the benefit of the deadlift plus add the ability to alter levers and improve form to generally be safer for the lower back;
- Bear crawls recruit motor patterns we use when sprinting plus also challenging our core, shoulders, plus hips;
- Single-leg training gives greater muscle development and better muscle strength as it works more muscle; and
- The farmer’s walk is now a staple exercise for core training to deal with real force in motion.
Purposeful Training, Not Functional
1. Trap Bar Deadlifts
The basic deadlift is a common favorite, but often physical restrictions stop people from carrying it out effectively.
The trap bar deadlift provides all of the benefits of the deadlift along with the ability to change levers and alter form to utilize the lift effectively, without the associated risks and issued of the regular deadlift.
The trap bar deadlift is a key part of training with purpose, permitting us the maximum benefit of the deadlift without the risk.
This isn’t weak and doesn’t slow you down. It extends your training ability and longevity.
2. Bear Crawls
Bear crawls permit us to practice motor patterns we use while sprinting plus also challenging the core, shoulders and hips to stabilize our body.
Try doing 3 x 20 yards. Try them with dumbbells in both hands. it goes without saying – increase the weight as you can.
3. Rear-Foot Elevated Split Squat
Single-leg training fosters more muscle-growth and greater muscle strength as it works more muscles. It doesn’t just work prime movers, but stabilizers and neutralizers, as well.
Regardless of all that, if you run, play sports, or move recreationally, then it’s important that you jump on one leg and start getting improving.
If you want to maintain your shoulder health in the long term, it makes no sense to focus only on the barbell. A barbell is harsher on the joints than press-ups, regardless of the weight.
Like chin-ups, press-ups done with weight permit for normal movement of your shoulder joint and scapula while still challenging your chest. As an added extra you’re working your core to get stronger at the same time.
Prior to barbells there were press-ups. It’s the exercise that has stood the test of time. Stick it into the routine and reap the benefits.
Do 3 sets of 12, using a weighted vest, weights on your back or resitance bands.
5. Farmer’s Walk
The farmer’s walk is now a staple exercise for core training to deal with real force in motion
An exercise with huge bang for buck, farmer’s walks give an overload to the traps, core, hips, and grip strength, as well as the cardio system.
