On the flipside, I know one person who is ripped, super fit, arms twice the size of my legs each. But dim as a burnt bulb at midnight.

"An approximate answer to the right question is worth a great deal more than a precise answer to the wrong question"
"One should respect public opinion in so far as is necessary to avoid starvation and to keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond that is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny, and is likely to interfere with happiness in all kinds of ways"
Gisteron wrote: How does the mind control the actions of the body? From what I can tell the mind [b}is[/b} a function of the body. No, that opinion is not an incontroversial one, of course, but those who contest it tend to do so on the grounds of their anthropological concerns, never on medical ones...

Hey you, out there on the road
Always doing what you're told
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall

Together we stand, divided we fall
Look for the Bare Necessities of Life
