Way of the Warlord: Holiday Break

Last week we continued our  Way of the Warlord program here at A Kings Castle.  This is designed to be an interactive physical, mental, and martial arts program where the authors of the site give out a two week challenge to the readers to better ourselves and become better men.  Today’s post is the mid point update where we will share our questions, triumphs, difficulties, and advice

Phase 5 Complete:

Last week’s homework was:

Physical: Team WB Fitness WB 10/10

Mental: Talk to 20 strangers

Physical: I continued the WB Fitness 10/10 4 days this week.  Once again, high volume training is not easy but gets you results.  I noticed a pump that I had carried throughout the week.

Mental:  While traveling in NY for business, it allowed me to speak to a ton of new people.  I even extended the olive branch to people in my office that I typically don’t talk to.  Seems to have done me some good.

Notice

I am suspending the Way of the Warlord program for the holiday season.  Use this time to rest up and get ready for our collaboration with Team WB Fitness January 15th.  Keep doing a light workout routine until that time.  We will have a normal post for every Friday going forward.

    • NemesisEnforcer

      This is why public transportation is fucking intolerable. I’d rather sit in gridlock.

            “yep, saw a woman get dicked in the face accidentally by these ‘performers.'”
            CBCB’s sentence has been tweaked to fit your situation.

            • cheeseburgercheeseburger

              best thing I ever saw on the subway was a drunk guy passed out on a bench, woke up long enough to realize he had to pee, unzipped his pants, passed out again, proceeded to wet his pants…he was SO close

    • bem

      the correct answer, of course, is
      “IT’S TIME TO GET ILL!”

      • cheeseburgercheeseburger

        aint no half steppin on the subway son

      • Honey Badger

        As much as I loved License to Ill, it just wasn’t the same after I found out one of them married and became a feminist.

        • bem

          gotta seperate art from artist – most creative geniuses are assholes.

          • Yeah, especially that bem guy

            • bem

              why thank you. I think…….

        • The irony behind them was hilarious. 3 Jewish white kids made a name for themselves in early hip hop because….well they were 3 jewish white kids.

          • bem

            I still have the nagging suspicion that the whole thing started out as a joke – but then they turned out to be good at it.

            • cheeseburgercheeseburger

              It WAS a goof- they were in a punk band before, they didnt think it would take off…went back to the punk thing with check your head

                check your head was still kinda rappy

                • cheeseburgercheeseburger

          nothing like smelling fish cake breath at 7am….
          ah, the good ol’ 7 train…

          • cheeseburgercheeseburger

            where are they going with all those groceries? Its like the chinese in Flushing only shop in the Manhattan Chinatown, and vice versa

            • I knew a guy who had bad case of yellow fever. Used to say that if they installed a bar car on the 7 he would never get off the train

              • cheeseburgercheeseburger

                  Bet he kept his coke covered though!

                  • UnreconstructedConfederate

                    There’s nothing like starting out the day with peepee coke.

          • UnreconstructedConfederate

            That can’t smell good at 7pm either. Wth is fish cake anyway? Sounds like something we would use for bait around here.

            • bem

              basically yes. I’m not sure. I find its best not to talk to Chinese people about what they’re eating, or actually anyone on the train…

            • cheeseburgercheeseburger

              Italian fishcakes arent that bad, but I have no idea what kind of fish it is…white(ish) fish meal…breaded

              • Christmas morning I wake up and fry a bakala cake and egg.

                Nothing like a thoroughly installed hang over and fried bakala to get the day started right

                • bem

                  ooof…..

                • cheeseburgercheeseburger

                  is that what is inside? baccala? I never bothered asking

                  • bem

                    christmas eve dinner was like a fraternity hazing when I was a kid…..
                    didnt know what half that shit was.

                  • salt cod, potatoes, onions etc.

          • UnreconstructedConfederate

            Reminds me of when I worked first shift at the prison. Just before chow call in the mornings all the inmates would start crowding around the door. Morning breath x 96

            • bem

              I had a friend who was a CO. Didn’t last long. He said it dawned on him a few months in that he was actually IN PRISON! All day! Couldn’t bear being around all that shit day in and day out.

            That’s what you get when you try to make out with a lesbian…

        • UnreconstructedConfederate

          Better than toenails….I guess.

        • pssh I saw a bum (bem?) under an overpass in Trenton jacking off in plain view of the train station platform. Never change NJ

        come on. Doesn’t this look fun to do first thing in the morning and then again after a long day at work?

        • cheeseburgercheeseburger

          Im so fuckin triggered

          • is there a special tape on the trigger and the butt?

            • bem

              I dont want him coming out with his dik in his hand…

        • bem

          I’d STILL take that over sitting in traffic…

          • cheeseburgercheeseburger

            I dunno man, if its quick, 10-15 min maybe…otherwise Id rather sit in traffic

            • bem

              sure, just flash the lights and barrel down on the shoulder……
              But I get in trouble when I do that.

            • 6 train stops. Doesn’t matter how crowded that is, beats being in a car.

              • dckhead_con_artist

                rode the tube in London for a week..For 7 days and nights straight , I rode that fucking tube. Saw couples make out, drunks smelling like ass and feet, pervs watching porn, young women talking about stupid shit, and old ladys being appauled about everything the others were saying and doing. PURE ENTERTAINMENT

        • UnreconstructedConfederate

          What if somebody farts in there? There’s no way to escape.

          • bem

            it pays to shoot first – I’ll always take my stank over another’s.

            • UnreconstructedConfederate

              I can understand that. When I fart it doesn’t bother me a bit, as a matter of fact I laugh when it’s really loud.

              • bem

                of course!!
                its an immutable law of nature – farts are ALWAYS funny.

          • What if? Someone always farts.

            • UnreconstructedConfederate

              So you just want to stand there and soak it up? I usually try to get away, unless it was me.

              • B1k3_Ch41N

                You basically stand there and try not to breathe much and if you do make sure that you don’t breathe through your mouth because……

                • bem

                  “I taste it….onions. And ketchup.”

                  • B1k3_Ch41N

                    Hahaha I still remember the time someone yawned/inhaled a dutty fart on a crowded tube platform followed by the dude gagging and then barfing on the incoming train which in turn splashed back onto commuters. Chuckling as I’m writing this….just seeing the dude gagging with years in his eyes. Haha

        • B1k3_Ch41N

          Looks like there’s still some breathing room above ppl heads but still better than this. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/181465ef84a7271752f626922996ad9a8a15a0e00b9800f42e69d9bde2e06d44.jpg

          • UnreconstructedConfederate

            I couldn’t take that. If I extend my arm all the way out, anyone inside that range shouldn’t be surprised if they get assaulted. I’m not the touchy feely type especially early in the morning.

            • B1k3_Ch41N

              Tube/subway navigation at rush hour is comes with it’s own etiquette. Funny seeing tourists with big pack packs or newbies awkwardly trying to navigate through the masses of angry locals.
              I would advise anyone not familiar with big city transport to stay put like a sardine, near a window (a must in the summer) and try not to get a boner when the yoga pants hotties derriere pushes up against your crotch.

                • Boothe

                  You never know. He may not be back…as the vigilante. No, this time it will probably be Nelson Mandela or maybe even Harriet Tubman.
