Speaking of the alpha / beta man, I was watching omega man the other day...

Never heard of that show/movie

Wishing you guys all the best.

WALLOPED!!!

Good to see you, brother.

Another 'good to hear from you Walloped'....

*****

The Tour de France is coming up, and I won't be able to watch it on TV for less than $40, or whatever NBC is screwing out of fans, and I don;t want to pay that much.

But the weather has been lousy for biking this year, and I can't see much of an improvement coming. The Tour goes on in the rain, but actually riding in the rain isn't much fun. So I'll aim to pirate the Tour this year....

It has dawned on me that one of the reasons bike racing isn't on networks is that cyclists are too likely to get out on their bikes and skip watching. Hell, I returned to riding while watching the Tour in 2013 - I remembered that I used to like biking in the middle of a broadcast, so I turned off the TV and rode 5 miles. Man, I swear it took me as long to ride the 5 miles that day as it took the pros to ride 110 miles....

Besides, bike racing is pretty hard to follow unless you've ridden in a group.

I can't imagine that doping or Lance Armstrong's win at any cost 'personality' keeps people from watching....

Gents,

Well, the Blues did it. What a night! What a weekend.

True to her word, I got a special of rendition of Gloria and then I got the second round of celebration. I gotta say, that was as fun as the third period.

We drove all the way to St. Louis for the parade and I got to spend some time with my Dad.

I still am stunned.

Now only if the Cardinals could stop their sucking...

Unhinged posted 6/17/2019 18:45 PM

I still am stunned.
ME, TOO!

I'm going to remember Pietrangelo's goal at the end of the 1st period for the rest of my life. That goal was just fucking beautiful, man! BEAUTIFUL!

I couldn't make it back to The Lou for the parade but I heard there was half a million people downtown to watch it. Blues fans flew in from all over the country! That must have been something. I'm planning trips back home just because I have to see Lord Stanley's Cup for myself. It's going to be a religion moment, for sure.

The Blues won the Cup. HFS!

steadychevy posted 6/17/2019 19:53 PM

What I was hoping to hear, reallyscrewedup, with a bonus. And on top of that the Blues won the cup. Triple win.

Binnigton had too weaker games and came back stellar. He's got to get some sort of award.

On a more serious note... (pun intended )

Every once in a while, someone, usually a BH, starts a thread about "alpha" and "red pill" males. I've read through a few of them, most of the time shaking my head. So, I thought I'd share what I'd consider to be one of the best descriptions of what makes an "alpha" male.

Capacities of Commanders

The capacities of commanders are not the same; some are greater, some are lesser.

One who spies out treachery and disaster, who wins the allegiance of others, is the leader of ten men.

One who rises early in the morning and retires late at night, and who words are discreet yet perceptive, is the leader of a hundred men.

One who is direct yet circumspect, who is brave and can fight, is the leader of a thousand men.

One of martial bearing and fierceness of heart, who knows the hardships of others and spares people from hunger and cold, is the leader of ten thousand men.

One who associates with the wise and promotes the able, who is careful of how he spends each day, who is sincere, trustworthy and magnanimous, and who is guarded in times of order as well as times of disturbance, is the leader of a hundred thousand men.

One whose humanitarian care extends to all under his command, whose trustworthiness and justice win the allegiance of neighboring nations, who understands the signs of the sky above, the patterns of the earth below, and the affairs of humanity in between, and who regards all people as his family, is a world-class leader, one who cannot be opposed.

Zhuge Liang was born around 180 CE, just before the fall of the Han Dynasty (200 BCE - 200 CE). He became on a leading general for the Shu Kingdom (think Scipio Africanus or Julius Caesar before returning to Rome). During his life he wrote commentaries on Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" as well as essays on leadership (military and civilian). The above quote is from Thomas Cleary's "Mastering the Art of War; Zhuge Liang and Liu Ji's commentaries on the classic by Sun Tzu."

Zhuge Liang

Romance of the three kingdoms. I always wanted someone to make a good hollywood movie out of it. Great saga/story.

Unhinged posted 6/18/2019 09:10 AM

I read three kingdoms many years ago. I've heard a Chinese studio made a great series based on it, but you know, the books are always better.

Thank you for posting this - all this alpha crap is such a crock of S&*T it makes me want to vomit.

Oh - and as a St. Louis Born Boy/Man - Let's Go Blues!!!!

sisoon posted 6/25/2019 18:52 PM

Whoa! Romance of the Three Kingdoms available in English? I never thought to look. I just requested it from my public library.

A video version with English sub-titles is available on youtube - it goes on my list.

I'm really interested in Roy's translation of Jin Ping Mei, a classic for many reasons, but it's 5 volumes, and there's too much focus on ... well, I don't even want to type the words.

I'm also looking for volume 2 of Pearl Buck's translation of Shui Hu Chuan, which she called 'All Men Are Brothers'. My library can't find one. If anyone has a lead I can use, I'd appreciate it.

Unhinged posted 7/2/2019 23:14 PM

Jezz… it's been quiet around here, lately.
Do we need to take out an ad or something?

numb&dumb posted 7/3/2019 14:59 PM

Holiday week. Everyone is out enjoying the weather. I am stuck working. Dreaming about tomorrow. . .

Going to make some ribs. Brined, marinated, grilled, baked off to finish. Been prepping them for four days !

It is amazing what people will do make a part of the pig they used to throw away into a delicacy.

Tonight the Missus and I might sit on the deck and have some drinks. Or if the kids wish we might play some games. Either board or ps4 social games (use phones as a controller).

Tomorrow I have to go to Eastern Europe for the week. I will miss my family, but It is something I have to do if I want to be recognized for being "good" at what I do.

Happy pre-4th gentlemen. May your beers be cold and your fireworks be, "non-maiming."
