    Mags

    After reading the thread about bodybuilding mags, I was just curious: What magazines do you read or have a subscription to? I like magazines. Here are some I read

    GQ - subscription. not what you think, believe me, I had the same thoughts until I picked one up at a friend's house and couldn't put it down for 2 hours.

    car and driver - read. I'm a car fanatic, so if there's anything on a car I'm interested in in the mag, I buy it.

    Football digest - subsription. Great info on pro football, and lots of info not found in traditional sports reporting. Dedicated 100% to football.

    Victorias Secret - lol, my(past) roommates girlfriend used to get it sent to our house when he lived in my house and she lived on campus. It still comes!

    Spin - subscription. Awesome source for music news and great interviews.

    I get industry-related publications for work that get sent directly to my office too.

    I just cancelled Fortune. It's gone downhill since I first started getting it years ago, and I'm finding it less valuable. If you like reading about other's success, this is the magazine for you.

    What about everyone else?

    I like GQ and Spin. Although I don't have a subscription to either. I think I shall subscribe to both rather soon.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift.

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I've heard that Belial likes 'Blue Boy' and 'Exercise: For Men Only'

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    Parables and Portraits, Stephen Mitchell

    Garden Gate - dropped subscription
    Muscle & Fitness - dropped subscription

    Oxygen
    Traditional Homes
    Money & Kiplinger Report - my dad passes his on to me
    Entertainment Weekly – great when I need some mindless reading
