Gym vs Home Gym: A Report

A few weeks back we had an open thread discussing the preferences between a home gym and going to a gym.  Having spent a month in a conventional gym after 3 years of using a home gym, I’ll weigh in on the pros, cons and my outlook going forward.

Home Gym

I have a pretty nice set of plates and a barbell, bench, a few dumbbells, a kettlebell, and makeshift squat stand.  This set up was my go to when I first started lifting seriously 3 years ago.  At this time I was doing high weight, low rep power lifting routines.   For someone doing a power lifting routine, this set up seems to be the cream  of the crop sans a power rack.  As I took on the Team WB Fitness bodybuilding routines, it didn’t seem to have the same luster.   That said, you can make gains with whatever you have as long as your dedicated.

Pros: 

No Waiting/Sharing:  This is probably the best part of home gyms.  You don’t have to wait to use equipment, and you’re the only one who does use it.  Shit, you could lift bare ass naked if you wanted to because you’re the only one there.

A Little at a Time:   If you don’t have the cash to fork over on a fully stocked garage gym, the you can just buy things as you can afford them.  Its an upfront cost, but that’s it.  Even mid-tier gym equipment can last years if taken care of correctly.

Its a Few Steps Away:  If your closest gym is far from your home, then this is a no brainer.  You can lift whenever you want, and don’t have to travel far to do it.

Cons

All Alone: You better have safety bars in place if you’re going to to test your 1rm.  No spotter and no help if you seriously fuck yourself up.  Not just that, you don’t have other people that can direct you if you have a question about a lift.

Temperature:  While some have a spare office or bedroom to lift in, most of us are forced into a garage or even worse like I was, outside!  Lifting in 14 degree weather is no joke and really fucks with how your muscles feel.

Space: Unless you have a huge garage, you’re going to have to make sacrifices as to what all you can keep in your home gym.  Need a high ceiling for a power rack.   Need a lot of space to store dumbbells and barbells.  Throw in a stair climber or air bike and your space can get pretty tight fast.

All in all, as I said above, a home gym can be good for some people, and its certainly better than not working out at all.   One thing to keep in mind, especially if you’re going super heavy weight is how to protect the floor and your plates.  Some guys put horse mats down where they do deadlifts or if you have the cash, get bumper plates, but they are a bit pricey.

Conventional Gym

Pros:

All the Equipment:  I’d say my favorite part of going to the gym is access to all the equipment they have there.  There are whole different groups of exercises and training I can do now that I have access to all this new equipment.  Bodybuilding requires you to hit your muscles in many different ways, so the more equipment, the better.  Another benefit is they keep the place clean and all the stuff in working order.

The Trip:  Luckily my gym is only about 10 minutes from my house, but actually venturing out from home makes it fun.  I get time to do my own shit away from the the house and family.  I like getting my bag prepped the night before and leaving at 4:15 am while everyone else is still sleeping.

People:  My kid brother has been going to the gym with me in the mornings an having a lifting partner is pretty cool.  You kind of hold yourself accountable to the other person to show up and that can get your ass out of bed when you aren’t feeling it.  Even if you go alone, there are typically other people that can give you a spot or shoot the shit with while you’re there. Also, if you’re single, there are tons of women at the gym, even at 4:30 in the morning.

Cons

People:  On the flip side, people can fucking suck.  The guy taking up a bench to sit there and text for 5 minutes between sets.  The guy who doesn’t re-rack the weights at all, or does so incorrectly.  That old dude who swears its his job to be naked in the locker room way more than necessary.  The guy who hasn’t discovered the invention of deodorant. The list is endless.  Most people are cool though.

Fees:  You’ll end up paying more to go to a gym over time than to buy your own shit.  Most gyms aren’t too pricey and if you can give up things like saunas and pools the fee will be much cheaper.

Rules: At the end of the day, you’re in someone else’s establishment and you have to play by their roles.  Most people don’t give a shit about what you’re doing but if you’re not playing by the rules then the staff can ask you to leave.  Something home gym owners don’t have to deal with.

Conventional gyms offer some advantages over a home gym.  The experience is way different and you can have access to tons of equipment. You have to deal with people, but if you go at a non-peak time, it’s not so bad.

Conclusion

While I prefer going to a gym over a home gym, I think the best if both worlds is great if you can make it happen. Personally, I’m thinking of setting up a pull up bar, dumbbell rack and air bike at home just for general fitness on days I can’t make it to the gym or for a quick session over the weekend, but I’ll train my program at the gym during the week.  You have to decide on what works best for you and will help you reach your goals faster.  Whether you are a home gym guy or a gym rat, getting up and getting your training in is most important.

  1. “Also, if you’re single, there are tons of women at the gym, even at 4:30 in the morning.”

    4:30 AM…What time do you go to sleep at night? And how many hours do you get?
    I get up at 5:20 AM to do my body weight exercises, and I used to think that was “early”. Until I read the comments from you and @wbfitness going to the gym at these crazy hours. But I am a terrible sleeper. For example, last night I went to bed around 11:15, and I woke up at 4:55 AM. But at least I slept all night, so 5h40m of straight sleep is actually very good for me.

    Another plus for your home gym — you can start your son out with weight training when he gets a little older.

  2. “On the flip side, people can fucking suck.”

    No. People DO suck. I find this the biggest reason I hate going to my gym. My time is limited and it’s usually full with half the people doing half-assed things. Eg. sitting on a bench or machine reading their smartphones or doing a lame set, looking around hoping to catch someone’s attention (this is usually mid-tier women between ages 25-40) or deciding to have a lengthy round of discussion with other sucky people while parked on said bench/ machine.

    I have been looking for a few professional pieces simply to build a home set to save travel time and if I want to lift at midnight, I don’t have to drive 20 mintues to get there and know it won’t be occupied.

      1. A police captain’s gotta be on call twenty-four hours a day. He signed out at that number between six and eight. Anybody know this gym?

      2. I don’t use any social media except a few memes here or there from Instagram. That said, I track my lifts on an app on my phone, but it only takes me 10 seconds to log the reps/sets and move on. You see these cunts on the bench for 5 mins between sets. Drives me crazy.

    1. like people who drive 10 MPH slower than the speed limit and in the left lane. It’s an unsolved mystery.

    2. Depends on when you go. I find that at 5 am the people in the gym are far more goal oriented, serious about fitness and less bullshit than, say, the 630 pm crew

      1. I would agree, but I find the 06:30 crowd to contain less sucky people in the weights section, mostly working stiffs like me before going to work, and the equipment is wide open. When I hit the door at 08:00 I notcie the incoming wave are the geriatrics and unemployed urchins.

        1. Same here…though at my gym the serious lifters hit it very early. I’d say I am one of maybe 10 guys in the gym at that time who are really hard core and I may be in the top half of those guys, but if so only by a small margin.

          8 oclock is, as you say….

          1pm on weekdays, when I am lucky to hit it, is when all the strippers come in

          1. “1pm on weekdays, when I am lucky to hit it, is when all the strippers come in”

            The cute girls in my wave are usually in the weight section to maintain form, not strength, and most likely work in sales.

            1. ahhhh sales…noting like pharma rep girls asking for form checks or spots. This one girl who was benching 65 pounds (10 pound plate on either side of the bar which, to be fair to her, was probably about 60% body weight) asked me for a spot one day. I just stood there dripping sweat (im a sweaty mother fucker) “helping.” If this girl dropped that bar it would have been game over. I was paying exactly no attention to the weight.

              1. I banged a pharma rep girl couple years ago. She was my age and actually more professional than I’d expected. She made an effort to know her science inside and out.

        2. Yeah, I see that too. The free weight area is avoided like the plague by the treadmill gazelles (what my son calls the pretty girls on the elliptical machines) and the “bros” who do three reps with five pounds on the Nautilus equipment.

  3. Yeah – let’s talk gyms, @jnyx. First of all, you’re all done. You don’t even build that kind of muscle anymore. Cold out, right? You’re getting chased out of your home gym by your own family.

    What do you think is going on here? You think you can come to my gym and take over?

    I talk to @wbfitness:disqus – I can get a program from him, and still keep my home gym!

  4. you wont see women doing hip thrusts at home. and if you do see em at your home gym, I would like to join

    1. Hip thrusters are great! not just to watch, but all guys in the gym should be doing them.

      As great as they are to watch, the best days are the ones where the ladies are doing the good mornings.

  5. The biggest pain I have with a public gym is the dressing up, drive, dress down, drive. An extra 45 min of hassle is a lot. At home, I just crawl out of bed and do my exercises in my underwear then take my regular morning shower. Maybe 3-5 minutes hassle.

    1. I have a routine the night before. I get my gym clothes ready, even put socks by my shoes the night before. Get my protein shake mixed up in the fridge etc. I get out of bed, piss, brush teeth, then wear my gym clothes to the gym, lift, shower then off to work. I like the ritual of it.

      1. Once I no longer am driving my daughter to preschool in Nashville, I’ll probably start working out in the morning again. As it stands now, if I were to work out in the morning, I’d be doing a ton of driving back and forth in the morning before I ever left for work.

  6. Home gym was training wheels for me. The only way I could see it working was for super exotic training– like Van Dam getting all stretched out in “Bloodsport,” or Steven Segal recovering from his coma by accupuncturing himself and beating wooden planks in “Hard to Kill.” Rocky beating up a side of beef and chasing a chicken were pretty good home gyms, too. https://youtu.be/VnYDrs2ykcI

    1. “who would win in a fight? Segal or Van Damme?” dont tell me you didnt have this argument as a kid lol

        1. Agreed. Van Damme all the way. He’s is MUCH better shape and I would bet he has the techniques to make him more adaptable in a fight than Segal has.

              1. I think your get it from all that comedy your playing with that young girl.

                Never tell anybody outside the family what you’re thinking about Al Capone’s drip!

            1. He’s fat, old and slow. All JCVD would have to do is avoid Segal falling on him, and he wins. Segal doesn’t even lift, bro.

                  1. Im having a flashback to convos I had as we rode our sweet Mongoose bikes to the comic book store…ah the 90s

        2. The question isn’t which one would win, it is which one would get richer giving meaningless colored belts and trophies to fat kids for good attendance.

          1. Hmmm…

            I tried Akido (Segal’s stuff) for a little while. Not a lot of accessories for sale. Plus the whole school all seemed to have had each other sexually, and I was sure I was gonna get crabs from sparring. I can still feel some of those people pinning me, and it felt like the foreplay version of rape.

            So, I’m gonna go JCVD on that one, too.

            1. Wait, was that place called Behind The Green Dojo? Because I’ve heard bad things about that one…

  7. You talk about home gyms–are home gyms gonna bring your gains back to you? Or my gains to me? I forgo the gym in my home — But I have selfish reasons. My gainz– wereforced to leave this body,– because of this down time business. All right — and I have to make arrangements to bring them back here safely — clear of all this excess body fat. But I’m a superstitious man — and if some unlucky accident should befall me– if I should get a torn quadriceps or hamstring — or if my– knee should flair up — or if I’m struck by a falling Olympic bar — then I’m going to blame some of the people in this room. And that, I do not forgive. But — that aside — let me say that I swear — on the peaks of my biceps — that I will not be the one to skip the gym today…

    1. I think for you, a public gym is the way to go. You are more serious about the gym and are willing to commit the time and effort. You will have access to better equipment and help/encouragement from others. For us schlubs who don’t want to put in the effort, we would just buy the gym memberships and go a couple times a week if we are lucky.

      1. People who buy a gym membership and go a couple of times a week are the people who keep the lights on in the joint. The gym looses money on idiots like me. They have to fix shit i break, clean blood out of the knurling I leave and, prorated for time, I pay pennies. Schlubs are the most important part of the gym going crowd

        1. True, although your crowd is advertising for the gym. Several years ago, when we moved to Utah, I was living by myself for almost two months in this cheap motel while my wife was getting things prepped for the move. I bought myself a gym membership and it was great, I was making gains and getting in shape. Then I find a house and move in with the family. I went maybe once a month after that.

    2. Dont skip, otherwise the cops will come to your house. And your family will be ruined. Of course if I’m wrong about how much you worked out, I’ll take less. And by less, I mean — a one set less.

      Understand, paisan?

    3. You know what WB you are nothing to me now. You are not a brother you’re not a friend. I don’t want to know you or what you do. I don’t want to see you at AKC. I don’t want to see you at ROK. When you see our mother I want to know a day in advance so I won’t be there.

      1. @lattacky You gonna come along with me in these things I have to do — or what. Because if not you can take your comments, your replies, and your trolling–and move ’em all to Las Vegas.

        1. What did I do to deserve such disrespect if you had come to
          me in friendship then I would accept your scum comment and if by chance an honest troll like you should make an enemy then he would be my enemy and then they would fear you

      2. Listen, I got a lot of nice people here. Friends of mine. I’ll never forgive you if you ruin my party.

    4. Hey, what’s with the weights around here? A kid comes up to me in a wife beater, gives me a Shakeweight, and says ‘Free Weights’, I said, uh, ‘Free Weights’ my Ass!

        1. WB always makes good workouts for his partners. One by one, our old friends are gone. Death, natural or not, prison, deported. WB is the only one left, because he always made good workouts for his partners.

          1. I appreciate your concern, Lou– and your respect. The gains you’re interested in — the the way to get them is through sound principles, massive volume – they’re both the primary way to succeed with weights. The real heros are the old Golden Age group from the 70’s, and our friend in Miami. Arnold runs the store — he gets a piece of it, too — he does alright. But I’ve been instructed to tell you that if you move high volume weights, the strength and physique gains will come along.

  8. End of the day I opt for the public gym. I had a home gym in the basement for a while, but the “all alone” part became pretty scary once the weights was I was lifting became significant. Staring at a hard bench press in a public gym you know you’re going to get a spot if you ask, in case things get wonky, but at home you start to drop that bar and there’s nobody around to help and then you’re screwed. Even minus the danger aspect, being alone means no partner, means nothing to motivate you on those days when you feel like you can take it or leave it.

    The cons of public gym are true, no question, so you develop strategies to deal with it. Go in early, which has been mentioned. I also like to stand two feet from somebody and stare at them when they’re there for “Thumb Day” aka Playing on Facebook while sitting on gym equipment. Eventually the proximity makes them uncomfortable and you’ll get the “Oh, did you need to use this?” It’s not something you have to do often, but once in a while, eh…..

    1. I need to get back in the gym. Perhaps after my testing is over.
      My only hope is that bunch of dopey teenage boys have stopped going to my gym, at the very least that one jackass kid who half-assed everything and was nothing more than a waste of space.

      1. You mean 5 fifteen year old boys all benching 50lbs for 3 reps each resting for 5 minutes between sets, looking at facebook wearing jeans and polo shirts arent the masters of gains?

    2. There is always the 2 guys who train together and end up congregating at a machine, sitting at the machine, and talking about that particular machine, but not using the machine.

        1. guy at my gym went in recently, two gay guys, no towels. he flips out at them, he flips out at management…guess whose side the manager took?
          no saunas for cb3

          1. Question…srsly…how did he know they were gay? were they fagging out?

            I sit in the steam room with no towel….most guys do. Did he just assume gay? If not, if he actually say something, ewwwwww

            Meanwhile, my stance on this is simple. The reason the locker rooms are split up into men and women is because there is a sexual attraction that will make people uncomfortable to change and just do their thing (I am old guy in the locker room who is naked way too much as per JNYX complaints). But if they are going to allow fags in the mens locker room that is no different than letting men in the women’s locker room.

            Because having a fags only locker room is impractical (just think of the mop up costs) I suggest that the locker rooms be combined for one, enormous coed locker room.

            Fuck it.

            1. “..enormous coed locker room.”

              Been there. Works in Finland and other places in Europe, but I simply do not see that happening in the US. Not with the current “me too man splaining” fever.

              1. Yep, a quicker way to shut down the entire fitness industry could not be invented.

              2. I don’t know…I get that every gym culture is different, but at least at my gym you don’t get all that shit. In fact, I have a feeling that a very significant portion of that fever is just on the internet to incite idiots into not being successful. Here in a very liberal city I see exactly zero of it. I’d venture a guess that most people who complain most vociferously about these social issues have little or no first hand experience with it and, indeed, probably live very sheltered lives.

                I mean, sure if I go to a feminist book shop down in the village in a MAGA had with my dick out ill hear some heat…but the stuff i see online just doesn’t jive with my actual experience of people. It seems that people who live their entire lives for the internet are actually very bad at approximating the way people interact with each other.

          1. As a general rule, I find that in a locker room where there is a top and bottom row of lockers, absent mitigating factors like top row filled, handicapped or midget, anyone who puts their stuff in a bottom locker rather than a top when (when available) is 100% homo.

              1. My locker room is huge. I think it would take about 75 people in there before there was any actual notice that it was getting crowded and more than 100 before it became annoying. Shit there are 20 showers

                1. The are probably over 100 lockers where I go and 3 showers. Last time I went during peak hours every locker was taken (which only indicated the place has reached max suck), so I just turned and walked out.

                  1. that’s fucking batshit. 20 showers plus a steam room big enough for 30 non homosexuals to fit comfortably in plus a half dozen different locker areas, 10 toilet stalls, 10 urinals, a 10 station area with blowdryer and various creams and powders, about 30 sinks each with shaving gear, mouth wash and other shit….all spotlessly cleaned thanks to the guy whose job it is just to stay in the locker room at all times cleaning.

                    It is a glorious thing

          1. I’m waiting for the day my 15 year old invites half the cheerleaders to a party at my house while I pretend to be at work.

            1. That phase of raising a daughter is really uncomfortable, that is, when her friends are all 16-19 year old girls. I made it a point to find lots of excuses to be outside doing lawn work when they’d show up and hang out inside the house.

              1. That is about 5 years from now for me. The girls are starting to play dress up type games with their friends.

                1. My daughter has a friend she’s grown up with since around 4th grade, give or take. The girl moves because of her family but comes back to visit every couple of months. About a year ago she shows up, 18 years old, totally transformed from the former dorky goofy gangly type girl into this stunning young lady with long hair and porcelain skin and a figure men would battle to the death over. The misfiring of my neurons, among other things, was extreme. You just go find something to do somewhere else, really, because it’s the only decent thing to do.

                    1. I haven’t done a bracket in a while, I don’t even know who I’d go with this year.

                  1. My uncle had his only daughter when he was 19 and when she was a teen would invite her girlfriends over to the farm in the summer. She once told me her 16 year old GFs admitted to her they wanted to bang her dad.

                    Years later I metioned this to my uncle when he and I were having a beer and he said, “I picked up that vibe. Thats why I always headed to the fields or the barn when they came. I wanted to avoid temptation and alot of conesquences for both our sakes.”

                    1. What did he say — Badda-beep, badda-bap, badda-boop, badda-beep — He wants us to send Champion to hear the proposition. And the promise is, that the deal is so tempting, that we can’t
                      refuse. Eh…

                    2. That kind of thing is way more common than is talked about in polite society. I think it relates back to how we used to structure society and marriage (28+ year old (and sometimes way older) men marrying 15-19 year old girls, etc). While the culture has changed, those biological impulses remain.

                    3. Yeah not looking forward to this when my daughters get to this age in 10 years. Plus the cousins are two girls around the same age.

                    4. My wife has an 18 year old and 13 year old niece, Both smoke shows, especially the younger (she looks almost identical to my wife). I try to stay busy if they’re at the house.

                    5. It is ironic that you spend years trying to attract pretty girls and then get to the point where you are actively trying to avoid them.

                    6. Lol. Or i could go trim some bushes or insert some posts and install a split-rail fence or aerate and plug the lawn.

                  2. Agreed. Self control is paramount. I have been working with the youth at church, mostly with the young men, but it is often combined with the young women. Lots of thoughts you need to pummel out of your brain.

                    1. It’s an old habit. I spent my life trying not to be careless women and
                      children can give into temptation, but not men.

                    2. Just stop.
                      It stopped being funny long ago.
                      And that “its funny cuz its not funny anymore” b’s stopped being funny long ago as well.
                      Knock it off.

                    3. You know you got to stop them at the beginning, like they should have stopped unabashed at ROK, They should never’ve let him get away with that. They were just asking for big trouble.

                      You know, Chip, we was all proud of you — being a fruit and all. @WB Fitness:disqus, too

              2. I have a co-worker with 3 daughters in the 16-21 category and in the summer they all hang out with ALL their friends at his pool. I’ve offered to be the lifeguard just in case the waves in the 4 feet section become overwhelming to the poor little ladies.

                  1. I suggest a more direct method. I say pull out a 70% erect dick in front of them, look at it as if it is the first time you have ever seen your genitals, and say “oh my god…what are we going to DOOOOOO about this”

                  2. The “don’t let them know” is highly important. Don’t be ‘that dad’, it is, and I agree with the girls on this, really, really creepy.

                1. Ahhh, young fellow. People tell me you’re rich, you and your two friends. Yet, you don’t show enough respect to send a few dresses to my home. You know I have three daughters.

                1. I’ll bide my time quietly and wait for you to get to that phase, and then mock you mercilessly. Only one daughter doesn’t mean only one friend. A house full of 16-19 year old girls (none of them named Zoot as far as I could determine) can be a bit uncomfortable.

                  1. “Only one daughter doesn’t mean only one friend. ”
                    My point exactly. However bad you had it, I’m guaranteed to have it 3 times worse.

                    1. You get to a point of maximum saturation after you reach about 7 of them in the house at the same time (prom, homecoming pre-events, summer sleepovers in the basement, etc).

                    2. Dafuk is wrong with you?!?! This is the perfect opportunity to bang all of your daughter’s friends! Like a FFFFM fivesome! Learn some game and don’t wimp out like a wuss.

                    3. Wrong on so many levels, but I know you’re just goofing around, heh.

                    4. I love it when I show up to the soccer games and my son’s little group of girls all say “Hi (my son’s name) DAD ! ” in unison.

                    5. I fucking took the ball away from one of his teammates during warm-ups and fucking sent it 40 yards with a bend in it to show off….. and flexed in front of them. Security removed me from the field.

                    6. Fredo is so sweet and helpless, yet he was banging cocktail waitresses 2 at a time and hanging with Johnny Ola in Cuba

                    7. Is anyone even paying attention….
                      ” he’s so sweet and helpless without you.”

                      WITHOUT YOU. He was banging cocktail waitresses 2 at a time when he had Michael’s love and support (and the protection of the Molanari family on the coast).

                      Without Michael. Without the Corleone family network. Without anything to live on or fall back on Fredo becomes like a child…no longer the confident swinging dick he was before.

                      I don’t know what to do with you all. I suppose the only option is that @disqus_tj7gjZttfg:disqus and I will need to increase godfather saturation until you people finally fuckin’ get it,.

                    8. No No No…Moe Green was providing the cocktail waitresses and pushing him around..That’s why they just had a mis-understanding. He yelled at Mike for disrespecting Moe. Fredo loved Moe more than Michael.

                    9. @bem we need to start assigning homework.

                      Moe took Freddie in because the Corleone Family bankrolled his casino –because the Molinari Family on the Coast guaranteed Fredo’s safety. Now — we’re talking business — let’s talk business…

                      Without Michael, Moe Greene doesn’t do dick for Fredo. Fredo has absolutely nothing that doesn’t stem from Michael. When Michael cuts him off from the family he is a nobody.

                    10. but the Corleone family was having a bad time so Moe was being the generous party and took Fredo in all the while getting a better deal from Barzini. If Moe was not in a position to bargain he would have accepted the offer. No way he would bluff without having some backup like Barzini. He took Fredo in to run small jobs as a favor. The Don was sick, everything was in disarray.

                    11. Well you just do what I tell you to do! Goddamn it! If I had a wartime Godfather Quoter– a New Yorker– I wouldn’t be in this shape! Pop had @thechampion — look what I got. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean that. Ma made a little dinner — it’s Sunday…

                    12. No point, in time the ADHD types will get bored and move on to a new shiny.

                    13. Fredo ‘learning the casino business’ was EXILE. Punishment for being a fukkup and letting the Don get shot.

                    14. aka…gtfo

                      Freddie could dick off to California and hope that some people wouldn’t know just how far on the outs he was after Michael figured him for the traitor and still help him out….but he was cut off totally. If he walked into a Corleone owned casino he would have been, ostensibly, shown the door. Before, we he was Freddie, the Don’s Brother, he had a nearly unlimited amount of cash, people showed him respect and did him favors and the girls lined up for him.

                    15. There are things being negotiated now that are gonna solve all your problems
                      and answer all your questions. That’s all I can tell you now…

                    16. Some things you can’t avoid though. The pre-dance get togethers especially, which your wife will demand that you attend to take pictures, etc. I mean on the one hand, it’s great, a group of hot young ladies dressed to the nines strolling around, on the other hand it’s torture because it’s a group of hot young ladies dressed to the nines strolling around.

                    17. Who ya takin?
                      I mean, you have three. I think you should make them work for it. Like whoever does the most household chores gets to go to your dance with you.

                    18. Jak….Jak. What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? Had
                      you come to me in friendship, then this absence of quotes that harms your daughter would be over!
                      And that by chance if an honest man such as yourself should make enemies,
                      then they would become my enemies. And then we could quote them to death.

          1. Still – I want everyone here to know — there’s not

            gonna be no trouble from me! dckhead’, a porta!

  9. I demand camel toe to be visible through yoga pants. I boycott yoga pants that contain a layer of vag concealing padding. Let that toe shine ladies.

    1. Then we are agreed. The traffic in yoga pants will be permitted, but camel toed– and lululemon will give up concealment padding in the East — and there will be the peace.

        1. Ah, say — what do you think of the nerve those Koreans– those slanty eyed bastards, huh. Dropping bombs in out back yard — and on Pops birthday ya know.

  10. Definitely agree — the worst part about the gym is the other people. People fucking suck.

    1. I would imagine your dream job is working in a lighthouse with a spotty wi-fi connection

      1. But he believes in America. America made his fortune. And he’d raise his lighthouse in the American way.

            1. remember when he volunteered to be a human shield in Iraq before Bush bombed them? 2 days before the Shock & Awe, he fled back to Hollyweird first class.

              1. Yup. The war tourists all fled when the found out that Saddam was taking them up on their offer and Bush didn’t care about their virtue signalling.

        1. You don’t understand. Ainigmaris Thales never gets that job. That job is
          perfect for him; it’ll make him a big star.

          1. There’s more money potential in professional trolling than anything else we’re looking at. Now if we don’t get into it, somebody else will. Trolling is the thing of the future. And if we don’t get a piece of that action, we risk everything we have….I mean, not now, but, ah, maybe ten years from now.

          1. I wish. I am available for hire if any needs a professional troll. I have a pretty impressive resume.

  11. True story: Years ago, I knew a gorgeous woman, a model, who went to the gym in the middle of the night so that nobody saw her exercising. This way she casually could claim that she was blessed with a naturally perfect body.

    1. Women an vanity, two great things that go great together. Like peanut butter and chocolate.

      I don’t mind vanity in a woman, I think it’s fitting that a woman cares about her appearance. It’s that entire “hiding the effort behind a lie” that’s stupid, but hey, women, right?

  12. whats work like this mornin? here’s what is happening here after his speech from last night

    1. all the tatted up overweight smelly women at work are crying over the way he treated the helpless Dreamers.

      1. Saw someone bitching about him “co-opting” the word “Dreamers” like he isn’t allowed to use it for anybody but fucking illegal aliens. So many lulz.

        1. Reminiscent of the way he brilliantly co-opted the term ‘Fake News’. The origin of that was among academics trying to invent a basis for discrediting right-leaning media.

    2. Didn’t watch, but heard the SOTU went well. What caught my eye this morning was Joe Kennedy giving the democrat rebuttal to the SOTU in front of car. The optics of a Kennedy standing next to car– what were they thinking?! LMAO. It was bad enough he appeared to have jizz on the side of his mouth.

    3. MSNBC Host Joy Reid: “Church … family … police … military … the national anthem … Trump trying to call on all the tropes of 1950s-era nationalism. The goal of this speech appears to be to force the normalization of Trump on the terms of the bygone era his supporters are nostalgic for.”

      Now “church” and “family” are evil Nazi shit. lulz

      1. he was talking about MS13 last night, so naturally this morning the interpretation was “Trump calls all immigrants gang members”

        1. I still don’t understand why the Leftists say he is racist against black people. I mean, he has made a couple comments that you can take out of context to claim that he doesn’t like Mexicans, but what the fuck has he ever done to black people? Is it racist to give them jobs or something?

          1. I think CNN is up for sale, I just hope the My Pillow inventor buys it. nothing but his tv spots and him as the anchor talking up the pillow indiustrial complex 24/7

            1. If I had the money I would buy the network and just play 24 hours of Don West selling baseball cards with all the enthusiasm of a crack head with 1 million dollars of crack talking about how much he loves crack

                1. I enjoy watching football in the afternoon, one
                  of the things I enjoy about this country; baseball, too. I’ve loved
                  baseball ever since Arnold Rothstein fixed the World Series in 1919.

              1. ha I invested heavily in gregg jefferies and mike greenwell rookies cards. worth about 18 cents totatl now

          2. I still don’t understand why the Leftists say he is racist against black people.

            For the sake of the sound bite. You see, lots of people won’t bother to check, analyze, or think for themselves. Basically, because it works as a tool of political opposition, not because it’s true.

            1. Repeat the same thing over and over and over and count on your audience to be too lazy to bother to check out your claim. A tried and true strategy that the Left has used for almost 100 years. And it works.

          3. how can you be fair to animals? Ain – for
            Crissakes, listen – they do violence in their Grandmother’s neighborhoods. And everything with them is whores — whores! La vegana — junk dope! And they leave the gambling to last. Now I want to run my country without the DNC on my back, and I want those MS13 guys dead!

      2. I like how they pre-suppose that a ’50s-era nationalist’ mindset is outdated and went away. Truth of the matter is it’s always been there, it’s just that popular media stopped reflecting it. Call it denial of reality, perhaps.

        1. Also pretty fucked up that a United States Congressman was so triggered by chants of “USA” that he walked out of the State of the Uniom speech. If you hate the country, you shouldn’t be allowed to be a member of the fucking government.

              1. Ah yes, from one of the most gerrymandered districts that could possibly be drawn using the known laws of physics.

                I suppose it plays well with his “Full Communism NOW” base.

                1. the new head of the DNC is a member. he also is aligned with La Raza. the new #2 fella has ties to the Mus Brotherhood…

                  1. Yeah, people get so pissed about Trump allegedly selling America out to Russia. Well, he’d have to buy it back from Mexico and the Muslim Brotherhood after the Dems sold it to them. Not to mention China.

                    1. It still incredulous to me that they get a pass with “The Race”, meaning, their actual ethnic race.

      3. I would like to verify Thale’s statement. For years now a growing number of my constituents have enjoyed 1950’s era nationalism– and I have come to know it well. They have honored me with their Church, family, police, military and with their national anthem. Indeed I can proudly say some of my very best tropes are 50’s nationalism. However, Mr. CHAIRMAN, at this time very unfortunately I have to leave these proceedings in order to preside over a very important meeting of my own committee. But before I leave I do want to say this. These hearings on the Joey Reid are in no way what-so-ever a slur upon the great MSNBC. Because I can state from my own knowledge and experience — that MSNBC Hosts are among the most loyal — most law-abiding — patriotic, hard working American citizens in this land. And it would be a shame. Mr. CHAIRMAN if we allowed a few rotten apples to bring a bad name to the whole barrel. Because from the time of the great Joe Scarborough up through the time of Brian Williams right up to the present day — MSNBC Hosts have been pioneers in building and defending our great nation. They are the salt of the earth and one of the backbones of this country.

      1. I’ve only one spell of summoning, and it’s for Kersey. Doesn’t work well unfortunately. I’ll need to visit my corner Demonologist and see if he can create a Pabst specific summoning spell.

          1. Dude, I’ have been shitting all over Haiti for weeks… no response. Nothing! It’s like he doesn’t even love his Haitian sisters and all their AIDs anymore.

            1. Or…..and I sure hope not to be the harbinger of bad news…maybe he’s finally…….passed…….from complications……

          1. Jim, you talk as if you find constant repetition of the same boring material across entire threads, day after day after day by a small handful of posters that disrupts attempts at conversation to be a bad thing. Don’t be like that man. It’s “funny”. No, seriously, totes McGoats funny. Or so I’m told.

              1. Eh, not really. Kinda boring and uninspired. Funny a bit at first, now it’s just highlighting a lack of creativity.

                  1. This is more academic for me at this point than anything else. I was frustrated at first, but I’ve become genuinely curious why there seems to be a concerted attempt to bring the site down in regard to relevance. It’s for real curiosity. I mean you shut down the comments with endless trolling and the site’s mission is defeated, so I always wonder about motivations. Is it deliberate (probably not) or has the level of maturity fallen so low that the idea of harming other people’s well meaning efforts doesn’t even register as relevant? I don’t know man. I’m here for the few good conversations I’ll get in edgewise with the remaining guys that still post seriously (usually, and not coincidentally, fathers who enjoy the message this site tries to deliver), and with decreasing frequency, and not a lot else. That some don’t seem to care who they shit on to get their jollies, well, it is what it is I guess.

                    1. Eh, you misunderstand where I’m at with this, but it doesn’t matter. The site owners don’t seem to care so why should I? In any event, nice day out, think I’m due for a walk. Slainte.

                    2. I really get what you are saying. It is usually pretty good for the first hour or two, then goes to crap. By afternoon, people lose interest and go elsewhere. I guess there are only so many good points you can make with a particular article.

                      Even with less viewership, I think I prefer my articles going on the weekend slot just for that very reason.

                    3. TBH, I actually went to 8chan instead of here because it’s more focused and relevant in the comments.
                      Let that sink in.

    1. Do you have a job or something? I’m at least fairly productive in between attempts at trying to entertain you.

        1. there are so many writers and bloggers and youtubers , who the fuck keeps up with these people and their stupid writing?

            1. Being well known was his big mistake. Welcome to being totally unemployable for the rest of your fucking life. I mean, other than making himself a public figure I think he had a solid and intelligent plan

              1. Yeah, that’s the one thing. Dude will never be able to get a normal job ever again. Maybe some off-site contract shit, but that’s about it.

                1. Even that will be tough unless he is really gifted, willing to take far less money than he deserves and focuses on third world countries. I really think the freakiness towards the end had to do with him getting spooked about how real shit was (I could be wrong, I don’t know the guy or anything). I honestly believe that if he had remained totally anon he would still be doing alright

                  1. Yeah, but you got to know that writing an article about legalizing rape on private property and some of that other shit he pulled was going to have consequences. He was sort of a victim of his own success.

                    1. Yes and no. Of course it was. And even a company that totally agreed with everything that ever came out of that 60’s vagina of a face he has still isn’t going to hire him because he is an enormous liability.

                      That said, if that article and, well, everything else was written by Mr. X and he took careful steps so it wouldn’t be tracked back to him it simply wouldn’t be an issue.

                1. That is true..but at what cost. Making a million dollars is great, but not if your overhead is 5 million dollars. I don’t know what Roosh raked in, but he gave away any and all chances to ever have a normal job, pass a coop board approval, probably get a loan, marry pretty much any woman who has an internet connection….I mean, he has to remain the roosh character for life…..he simply can’t go back. Like I said, I don’t know what he sold his life for, but I am guessing it is not nearly enough.

                  1. didn’t all of us know already in the 90s not to marry former sluts, hookers, and single moms? In 1997 I double bagged Trojans on my ding dong with my first single mom. I didn’t need a Roosh back then to tell me so. I think only the broken guys from broken families would wife them up.

                    1. Plenty of guys were marrying single moms in the 90s. Plenty of dumbasses still doing that. Guys just happy to think they are gonna get some pussy, not thinking about the reality of the situation.

                    2. I don’t remember seeing too many, but like I said mostly former convicts or complete losers in their mid 40s starting all over in life.

                    3. I am not saying he was useful to anyone…actually i think he was more harmful than anything. I think filling the heads of a bunch of married guys who were otherwise just silly chumps with ideas of being great players and then, later on, as being dominant men probably caused as many divorces as girls night in vegas.

                      I do give him credit for taking advantage of suckers….something i always have a bit of admiration for.

                    4. I am of the opinion he was neither here nor there. I doubt silly chumps left their wives, if they were chumps to begin with because of Roosh. Roosh himself says he is “black pilled” which to me says he is an MGTOW, right wing, aloof, and opposite of everything his so-called former player persona supposedly was. He changes to keep himself relevant and any idiot can see that. Attention whore.

                    5. That’s the high and low of it. He morphs to meet market demands, or tries to create market demand by changing up his game now and then, or both, hard to tell.

            2. I doubt your average Canadian knows who he is. They are more worried about shoveling the snow out of their driveway.

            1. Good point. He can probably get the nicest hut in Laos and settle down with a nice little underage piece of ass with his RoK revenue.

          1. A lot for shitlording on the internet. I am still waiting for my first godfather check to come in. Not enough to sell your entire future for by a long shot.

  13. The best part about a home gym is that you can eat a grapefruit whenever and wherever you want .No lame ass staff to tell you not to.

              1. I think it would be akin to bringing a pride of lions into your hometown just to watch your neighbors get taken out. Still, that is one sick grapefruit.

                    1. I don’t get this infatuation with dangerous animals, poisonous snakes or spiders. Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

                    2. I’m with you. I don’t understand why anyone goes out of their way to bring anything that creates more feces into their home…that it is dangerous or poisonous is even more baffling.

          1. That’s okay. I can’t figure out who he is talking about. GOJ has 49065 posts, not 49000 posts, so it isn’t him.

              1. reminds me of the old days on HTML guestbooks where addresses and phone numbers were exchanged.

                1. There was one fight that I remember like this. Two kids didn’t get along, then there was a “Meet you under the water tower at noon” About 20 local kids showed up to witness, me being one. They fought, one kid got his arm twisted and gave up, then others ran in to break it. Fairly rare like that.

              2. Lol, yep! But showing up in Miami would be fun regardless, Ohio is dreary this time of year.

                  1. It’s really hard to look back sometimes. This was a “thing” that apparently seemed legit and cool at one period. Can you imagine?

                    1. Really, I would bet you if you dressed up like Crockett there, you would get quite a bit of positive attention from women. (No doubt you would get a lot of flak from your biker friends though)

                    2. Hell, if he just showed up dressed the way he normally does he’d get attention. The girls down there are OK, good for slaying if you just want to get laid but very forgettable if you’re looking for something serious.

                    3. My wife served a 1.5 year mission there, mostly among Haitian (no joke) immigrants. Said there were porn shops and loose women everywhere. As a 21-22 year old white woman in that area, she was propositioned more than once, until they saw the name tags.

        1. Right? I know he’s just joking at this point because his reading comprehension is (supposedly) so poor that he’s still claiming I challenged him.
          I’ll give him credit, I thought he was serious for a while, but now I know he’s been playing the long game troll. Damn fucking funny stuff.

            1. LOL! THAT………….IS…………………PERFECT!

              Ok, I’m totally on board with him being the long game troll. I’ve gained a bit of respect, heh.

                    1. I’ll buy that. I was in Nashville with friends for my birthday, dead middle of august, a lot of years ago and remember my impression of Tennessee was “this place is really cool minus the fact that the air is raping me”

                1. I’d take that with a large, large grain of salt. Anybody who thinks Florida is the utmost worst state, has never once stepped foot in Arkansas.

                    1. actually, i read through it and it seems pretty accurate. I even agree with the placement of new york at 13 as long as I consider the criteria of the rankings.

                    2. I don’t understand why most people visit here. If you are talking about states that are great to go to, sure, new york at 13. The truth is, it is just too stressful here for most of the rest of the country. They can’t handle it. It isn’t that fun for them. SO they come to town and see our great stuff and eat our great food and spend a fortune living a great life, but, and i see it on the eyes of tourists all the time, by day 4 or 5 they really can’t make it. It is hard to hack it here.

                    3. I couldnt handle it there. Taking the train in from nj, getting to the subway station to get to Yankee stadium once or twice a year is enough for me.

                    4. I get that. I was born in the ridiculousness so it is home to me. There is a reason Sinatra says if you can make it here you can make it anywhere. Just the day to day life here can be very stressful. Like I said, vacation gets stressful. Most people in the country simply aren’t up to that kind of sensory input.

                    5. It’s certainly not my cup of tea. I do not and will never understand the allure of big cities. Visiting, ok, sure, but living there, nah, never going to happen. Plus it’s now the 21st century and while local establishments (of any area) are unique and likely great to visit and have history to them, which is great, it’s not like you can’t get the same quality food or merchandise anywhere in the world now at a moment’s notice. And honestly, that’s the only real draw to me to those places, outside of history (for some) or unique sights (Liberty Bell, Broadway, whatever).

                    6. Agreed, i like having my own space and being able to have the windows open at night and hearing nothing but frogs and crickets. I like the cities like ny philly and boston for the history part and getting different food but would never live in one.

                    7. different likes are normal. I have a cousin who would drop dead if he moved to the city and i can manage, at most, 24 hours living up on the farm where he is.

                      That said, a lot of people are so far behind in the race they think they are winning and imagine that things they are afraid of simply don’t have value.

                    8. I have a ton of respect for those able to do it. I have some buddies that i went to college with that live in brooklyn that were millionaires by 30. I know what i like and chose a different path.

                    9. Yeah. I mean, i think a lot of it is just how a person is wired and some of it probably has to do with what they are used to and whether or not the tend towards rebelling against it or ensconcing themselves in it.

                      I grew up with guys who couldn’t wait to get to the middle of fucking nowhere. I knew, at a very young age, that I would kill myself before moving off the coast and wanted an urban life.

                    10. My girlfriend through college and couple years after wanted me to leave my job and get one in philly. She was from long island so she liked the urban environment. I knew that meant eventually one of us would be unhappy wherever we wound up.

                  1. Agreed. Drove all night just to put Arkansas in the rearview. Made it to Memphis at 2am with the streets crawling with creepers and still felt more at peace.

                2. I did some hiking in TN in my college days and really liked the state and a friend married a girl from there and set up camp for good.

                  Are the women still as thin and pleasant as I remember from +20 years ago?

                  1. People are still pretty pleasant in general down here. I’d say the general population is about 50/50 in terms of weight.

                  2. The women that are the age of the women you were looking at 20 years ago might be. The actual thin women from 20 years ago are most likely cows now.

            2. I read that review and basically the chick was pissed because no one waited on her fast enough, so she just said “racism.”

              1. hey, i am too lazy for this but if you go through all the reviews on yelp (and maybe trip advisor) and find ones from the UK you will pretty much have Doxxed kersey

              2. If* it is an intentional troll, I’m sure the why would not have mattered to Kersey when deciding upon this restaurant.

                *I’m not entirely convinced it is.

                1. I could see Kersey being crazy enough to check the reviews on Yelp, stumble across one saying a restaurant is racist, and then decide to go eat there just to be able to be offended by every little thing they do and confirm the racism or whatever.

          1. Jak, wait a minute. I’m talking about a poster– that’s mixed up in duels. I’m talking about ah – ah – a crazy poster– a crooked poster who got mixed up in the AIDS rackets and got what was coming to him. That’s a terrific story. And we have blog people on the payroll, don’t we, Jak? And they might like a story like that.

          2. To his credit, he’s moved me from southern Ohio, to central Ohio now, so he at least picked that up from the last time. Then, of course, moves me to West Virginia/Missouri. Dude is all over the map.

            1. Hey now! I live in rural Missouri! That shitbird Kersey better understand that if he fucks with me he’s fuckin’ with th’ whole trailer park! 😂

              1. Millions of people flock to Missouri each year, get some gasoline, and then flock the hell out.

                Heh.

                Actually last time i was in Missouri, 2015, I saw a very attractive woman in western-ish garb, riding a true to life real horse on the side of a road that contained real car traffic. I rarely see that outside of Amish areas, and even then, it’s never with pretty cowgirl types.

                1. Well hell, we didn’t invite ’em so why in the world would we make ’em feel welcome. Tourists is like hemorrhoids. If they come down and go back up they ain’t too bad. But when they come down and stay… They’re a real pain in the ass!

              1. And Aaron Burr beat the rap and resumed his office as VP of the United States.
                Can imagine what it was like being a member of his staff. Yikes.

                1. VPs are good at that shit. Didn’t dick cheney shoot someone in the face only to have them apologize for getting in the way of his gun once they got out of the hospital

                  1. Cheney hit’em with five shots, and he’s still alive! Well that’s bad luck for me, and bad luck for you if you don’t make that deal!

                  2. Don’t forget that day when VP Geo Bee Sr. had his young friend Holden Caufield shoot Ronnie Alzheimer in the armpit.

              2. Sure, but odds are, he was going to die at some point in his life anyway.

      1. I really have a hard time believing he is trolling. I want to believe it, because it would be awesome, but he’s just too much of a fucking nutbar.

        1. That’s just it. It’s excellent trolling because he balances on the line so well that people don’t know if he’s being serious or not. I thought he was serious for a while until he started displaying some tells that clued me into him just doing this for the shits and giggles.

          1. That restaurant choice, given the Yelp review, seems to me to be a pretty big “tell” that he’s a troll.

              1. If he is trolling, he has to be copying some of that shit from actual crazy people. It is difficult to pretend to be that crazy.

          2. I kind of figured he was trolling when he started making all those fake accounts and then deleting his comments.

        2. Hey, Kersey is gonna be scared stiff of being trolled bac, believe me, so don’t worry about nothin’. You know, you’re going to turn out all right. You take a long vacation — nobody knows where — and we’re gonna quote the godfather

          1. I’ll square it with @Jak:disqus, uh – you know, your not seeing
            him before you leave; and uh, I’ll get a message to @Ainigmaris Thales:disqus ‘s boyfriend, when I think the time is right.

    1. Kersey, Kersey, Kersey. You talk tough and make bold claims, but we all know you’re just the pudgy guy from accounts receivable. Get off the computer and go play with your wife’s kids, even a spergy father is better than no father. If you just can’t let it up, then maybe you ought to contribute something. Send us an article explaining how to make fine Haitian cuisine, like dirt cookies, and if it’s funny enough we’ll post it. If you can’t even do that, then just use our Amazon Affiliate and buy 30 Days of Discipline to toughen you up so you can raise those kids better.

      1. It’s perfect for us. A small family place, good food. Everyone minds his
        business. It’s perfect. Pete: they got an old-fashion’ toilet – you know,
        the box, and the chain-thing. We might be able totape the gun behind it.

        1. Hey, listen, I want somebody good — and I mean very good — to plant that dueling pistol. I don’t want my brother coming out of that toilet with just his dick in his hands, alright?

        1. You know, actually, this would be an interesting thing to make into an annual AKC/ROK get together, if you think about it. Assuming he doesn’t go all Chuck Norris on us and krav maga us to death I mean.

              1. No. But I will spend the evening in perfect parody of Foghorn Leghorn, not just with our friends, but also ordering food and drinks.

                Boy ah say, I said ah say, I’ll take me a gander at the, ah say, the mint julip, son!

            1. Hey, listen to this — Jak wants to talk. Eh gosh — imagine the nerve of the sonofabitch, eh? Gets 2-3k subscribers, and wants a meet-up today…

              1. Hey WB-anooch, a hundred button men on the street twenty-four hours a day; that Kersey shows one hair on his ass, he’s trolled

          1. I’d be more worried that that the AIDS bearing cum guzzler would go all krav-fagga on us and try to suck us to death! 😂

      2. I’m thinking that there’s a 100% chance that he’s not going to actually be there. Especially given the Yelp review (no blacks welcome). He’s just trying to prank me, the silly little guy. But to give him credit, it’s clear he doesn’t like me but at least he calls me out me face to face like a man.

  14. Hi Kersey, wow, can’t even keep your post up for 12 minutes, what a cowardly little doof, lol. Here, I’ll repost it and my reply to you. 🙂

    To the trailer trash idiot with 49000 comments on Disqus. (Who claims to be from central Ohio but is more likely to live in West Virginia or rural Missouri) I have just checked your last week’s post. You are
    acting like a junkie who lost his only supplier. In most of your comment you try to get reaction from. You are barking on the wrong tree. I do not swing that way. I like women, particularly my wife. Yes, I am married with three wonderful children. I know envy is eating you just becasue of that. You challenged me for a duel but just like lolknee
    and Jak you failed to realize that according tot he old rules of duelingI have the right to choose the location and time. Of course you are not like that idiot lolknee who challenged me last August than didn’t turn
    up in the London location.

    Here is a chance to prove yourself kid:
    I’ll be on a business trip in Miami. FL next week. On the 7th I’ll be going for a lunch in Subres Grill (2218 NE 123rd St, North Miami, FL 33181, USA). Meet me in the parking lot at 2pm. Surely someone like you can at least afford the coach fare to south Florida. Leave out the bullshit, just make sure you are there at 2pm.

    Now, you got an offer you cannot refuse. If you planning anything dishonest you may end up…well, not sleeping with the fishes, but…in police custody, in a hospital or a morgue.

    I am 6 feet3″ , I learned Krav-Maga from a former sergeant of the IDF. (You already shat your
    pants). I am also good friend with the relative of the former Police Chief of North Miami Beach. So watch your step.
    I don’t need the description of you: I will look out for a hillbilly with a worn-out jeans and trainers, flannel shirt, greasy baseball cap and “meth-smile”. I’ll be easy to spot you.
    Be a man for once in your life and be there on the 7th.
    See you there.

    1. I’ve never challenged you to a duel. Ever. Your memory ain’t what it used to be, before….the treatments.

    2. West Virginia is actually quite beautiful, but I wouldn’t live there, not really a good base for IT work. Missouri is really flat and boring, and while I don’t diss anybody that lives there, it’s just not for me. I’m more of a mountain and canyon type. What’s wrong with those two states anyway? Plenty of smart people in every state, so your racist prejudices are showing through, but I guess that’s ok if it’s against white people, right?

    3. Why would I envy you being married and having children? I mean, good for you, so……?

    4. Why do I have to prove myself to some AIDS riddled dude from the Interwebs? I honestly couldn’t care less about you, except as a foil to use to make AIDS jokes. Sorry man.

    5. Pretty sure threatening to kill me, or even physically harm me in real life, or have one of your friends do so, violates
    something or another somewhere. Just saying.

    6. Why would I disrupt my life and plans just to get exposed to AIDS? I don’t get the logic here.

    7. Yeah, you’re 6’3″ and learned Krav Maga, most likely from Chuck Norris himself, no doubt, I’m sure you did. Consider my pants shat. Now, back to reality, I really don’t care kid. Honestly, I don’t. Nothing you “learned” nor any of your keyboard warrior stuff really does anything for me. I mean ok, it makes me laugh a little, but otherwise, eh…..*shrug*

    8. I’m so glad you’re back, there was speculation that you’d finally succumbed to the disease, and I was
    hoping that wasn’t the case.

    Since I never, ever challenged you to a ‘duel’ (what the hell does that even mean, pistols at dawn? Or assault and battery which would get both of us arrested? You want me to go to jail for senseless violence with you? Explain why I would do this again?), then your “old rules” are kind of silly. If you want to meet me and have a beer, come to Ohio and drop me a line. I’m not filled with anger, nor AIDS, like you so I don’t mind meeting people from the interwebs in real life, like I have with some here.

    In any event, that was a fantastic troll attempt, and I’m going to give it a 7/10 for the effort alone. In the future
    try to mind your spelling and grammar more to bring that score up, but otherwise, you’re really showing a marked improvement!

    Oh, and it’s “barking up the wrong tree”, not “barking on the wrong tree”. Just an FYI.

    1. Dude,
      “Got an offer you cannot refuse”
      “Sleep with fishes”
      Seems to me ol kersey is just trying to fit in around here.

      1. It did come off as try hard, but he has a lot of material so I’m going to let it slide.

          1. Apparently it’s a delayed reaction. I didn’t anticipate that.

            1. It’s an AIDS based life form. So the Kersey entity has to travel to Haiti, the Ukraine and other third world shitholes to collect enough individual viruses to physically manifest itself. The problem is, just like the third world hosts he acquires these bugs from, they won’t work together for any length of time. So this Kersey AIDS receptacle can only type for about twenty minutes tops. Then the bugs disperse and head to the nearest bathhouse or heroin den.

                1. Boothe is truly the poet laureate of the manosphere, at times.

      2. I didn’t see that, proof positive that he has been lurking here at least the last couple weeks.

    2. Quick pointer: from what I remember from GTA Vice city, Miami was full of Haitian gangs. Why would you meet him in such location?

      1. I’d stay strictly on the private beaches. No way I’m roaming around down town waiting for *very* spastic and poorly driven cars to hit me while I was walking on the sidewalk.

              1. He looks like the kind of guy that gets busted for having 30,000 pics of naked kids on his computer.

              2. When the Hot Light comes on, you better damned well be out of his path, or you’re going DOWN!

          1. Stone heartbreaker. Ladies die over guys that waddle around looking like they just shart themselves.

                1. I think he looks like a fat midget standing on another fat midget in a trench coat trying to look like a normal sized person.

    3. lmao, that reads like the Navy Seal Copy Pasta

      What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

        1. Here is a Ned Flanders Variant

          What the darn-diddily-doodily did you just say about me, you little witcharooney? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class at Springfield Bible College, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret mission trips in Capital City, and I have over 300 confirmed baptisms. I am trained in the Old Testament and I’m the top converter in the entire church mission group. You are nothing to me but just another heathen. I will cast your sins out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before in Heaven, mark my diddily-iddilly words. You think you can get away with saying that blasphemy to me over the Internet? Think again, friendarino. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of evangelists across Springfield and your IP is being traced by God right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggorino. The storm that wipes out the diddily little thing you call your life of sin. You’re going to Church, kiddily-widdily. Jesus can be anywhere, anytime, and he can turn you to the Gospel in over infinity ways, and that’s just with his bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in preaching to nonbelievers, but I have access to the entire dang- diddily Bible collection of the Springfield Bible College and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your sins away off the face of the continent, you diddily-doo satan-worshipper. If only you could have known what holy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you from the Heavens, maybe you would have held your darn-diddily-fundgearoo tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re clean of all your sins, you widdillo-skiddily neighborino. I will sing hymns of praise all over you and you will drown in the love of Christ. You’re farn-foodily- flank-fiddily reborn, kiddo-diddily.

  15. I currently have a Keyes Fitness power rack with Olympic weights set up at home. This has safeties that allow me to go to failure without the need for a spotter. I like the convenience of being able to walk out of our kitchen and right into the gym. Plus I never have to wait for someone else to finish so I can use the equipment. Since I live in a rural area, there are no commercial gyms nearby, so working out at home is my only viable option.

    When I traveled for work I had the opportunity to try gyms all over the country. Some were really nice and well appointed and some looked like prison weight rooms. Frankly, the more Spartan gyms that focused on free weights and the big lifts were the most enjoyable. The crowd in those gyms tended to be more serious minded, friendly and helpful.

    The bigger, glitzy Mc-Gyms seemed to have a more distant clientele and a lot of distractions. Granted, the scenery can be nice. But the last thing I need is some scantily clad young hottie strutting by as I am about to hit failure doing squats. That can literally cause you to hurt yourself. If I want that kind scenery I’ll go to the beach. WB Fitness and I have discussed this before and he has resorted to using a hoodie to block out the side view to stay focused.

    And one final word of caution in our modern, highly mobile society: MRSA. Always wipe down community gym equipment with disinfectant spray before you use it. In many of the nicer gyms I have visited they provide it for you. If they don’t take your own with. We all want it to be a killer workout…but not from a Staph infection.

    1. Absolutely! On Squats hoodie is necessary to prevent eye candy related injuries. Funny you mention in, I just got the mock up for the WB Fitness sleeveless hoodies

      MRSA is a real concern and disinfecting is a real issue! Very good bring up of something that does not get mentioned enough.

  16. I got my wife started on my morning routine. On odd days I do 30 pushups, she does 5 assisted pushups, I do 30 situps, she does 20….etc. On even days, we do a 2.5 mile circuit of run a minute, walk a minute, repeat. Seems to work decent.

    1. Before kid #2, my wife and I would play racquetball a couple times a week. I’m hoping once the baby is older we can do something like that together. Helps push her to stay in shape.

      1. It is tough to get away until the oldest can babysit. The shape you are in will directly correlate to if she turns into a landwhale or not. If you refuse to eat a treat because of health reasons, she will stop making them. If you go out for walks, she will tag along. If you get into some sport, she might tag along.

        1. Yeah, I’m not too worried about her landwhaling on me (she’s depressed because she weighs 130 lbs months post-csection). I just want her to tone up a little, plus it’s good for her cardiovascular health

          1. My experience in marriage is only marginally better than my experience being a rockstar astronaut billionaire, but if what I know about women in general holds for the married type…the best way to tone her up is to get yourself in better shape. Women are funny that way. Tell them to tone up or you will leave them and they will bee line for the krispy kremes. Tell them they look just fine while getting your body fat down near 10% and they will, on their own, whip themselves into shape faster than you can say “ha-ha”

            1. One of my coworkers who is tall and skinny brought his landwhale of his wife to an afterwork get together. I think in that case she just eats all the food and he doesnt get enough.

            2. When I first starting back at the gym, she was all “I like you the way you are. Who are you trying to impress?”

              I told her it was for me. Now she’s finally getting back to normal after the baby and she was rubbing my arms and chest the other day and then later said something to our daughter about Daddy’s big arms and chest 🙂

              Now she’s saying she’s ready to start exercising again.

  17. Mamma dear come over here

    And see who’s looking in my window

    It’s the baker boy and look

    he’s got a cannoli in his hands

    If you marry the baker boy

    He will come and he will go

    He will always mix the flower in the pan

    If you marry the baker boy

    He’ll have a cannoli in his hand

  18. OT: LOL, the ACLU is actually complaining that Trump used the word “America” more than 80 times in his State of the Uniom speech, saying its “divisive” and “exclusionary.” And the feminists are pissed because he never said “women” even once.

    BEST. TIMELINE. EVER.

    1. What? He said America 80 times in an American Presidential State Of The Union (for America) speech talking about America?!?!? That RAAAYYYCIIIST!

      Why would he say women specifically? I’ll bet you he never once mentioned grapefruit, but you don’t hear Chip getting all pissed off about it.

        1. Yeah, it probably didn’t help that he said it with “that courageous broad” and “that chick was tough, reeeaally tough, yuuuuge amounts of courage for a dame” though. But I appreciated where he was coming from.

    2. Seriously, don’t you realize you have completely fucked up when you are complaining about the word “America” while you are in America, talking about the America President giving a speech to the America Congress, and you have the word “America” in the name of your own fucking organization?

              1. As long as your dog doesn’t start trying to convince you to kill people in order to impress Jodi Foster, you’re golden.

                    1. Wait a minute. I’m talking about an actress that’s mixed up in muff-diving. I’m
                      talking about a carpet-munching broad — a broad who got mixed up with serial killers and got what was coming to her.

                      That’s a terrific story. And we have internet-people on the payroll, don’t we, Ain?

                      And they might like a story like that.

                  1. Nah, the voices in your head like Taxi Driver-era Jodi Foster, back when she was a dirty underage little sexpot.

    1. I bet that dude gets “feminists” throwing the pussy at him. 90% of those bitches are just aching to get treated like a stupid little cum dumpster.

          1. This girl can be cleaned up, dressed well and be bangable.

            I mean she is obviously going out of her way to be nasty, but she has some nice features.

          2. Clean her up, shave her pits and legs and cooch, make her hair a normal color and take that livestock ring out of her nose and she’d be attractive. She’s another in a long line of probably pretty girls who ugly themselves up due to being stupid follower sheep of the feminist creed. Too stupid to realize the trick that was pulled on her, but probably good genetic wife material in another era.

  19. To the Alabama redneck with his “Updates” on Haiti.
    Nobody cares how many times you call Haiti a s***hole.
    Sensible people were outraged when Trump made that derogatory remark on Haiti. That’s because Trump is the President of the US and he should have known better.
    Pst…you are not the President of the US.
    You could not show Haiti on a map or have met a Haitian person in your life. Go ahead, call Haiti names with you inbred cousins in the trailer park in between a shot of Jack Daniels and a dose of crystal meth or fentanyl or whatever the hell is fashionable among rednecks these days.
    (“Bro, Haiti is a s***hole. By golly, Trump said so! Yeeehaa!”) Enjoy while it last. And you fell like a right idiot (for which you are) when Trump apologizes for his remark. Because he will.
    You are a sad pathetic loser. I feel sorry for you.
    Goodbye.
    P.S I know you are not from Alabama. However, since you protested against it – it stuck. Let me give you a taste of your own medicine.

      1. If only I could live to see it — to be there with you. What I wouldn’t
        give for twenty more years. Here they are protected — free to make
        their squalor without human rights and without the EPA.
        Ninety miles
        away, partnership with a friendly government — ninety miles. It’s
        nothing. Just one small step, looking for a man that wants to be
        President of the United States — and having the cash to make it
        possible.
        Kersey, we’re bigger than Sanitary Living Conditions.

  20. To DoubleCheeseBurger
    You claim to be (partly) Italian-American. There are some great Italian-Americans. One such man is Christian Picciolini. (Not from New Jersey but from Illinois)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Picciolini
    He managed to turn his life around…from a a racist person to a decent one who fights racism.
    I know you can turn your life around , just like he did.
    Good luck to you, son.

    1. LMAO. Dude, you’re alright in my book. You might wanna tone it down a bit though if you’re still wanting people to fall for your serious troll bit. It’s a fine line to walk, I know, but with a little tweaking you’ll be right as rain.

        1. from a a racist person to a decent one who fights racism.

          Nothing worse than a recovering alcoholic racist.

          Yeah, he’s a pussy.

          1. I still think its real. How does a troll just pick some random dude like Christian Picciolini out of thin air? That’s crazy person shit.

        2. See that, CBCB? This Picciolini guy was able to earn Kersey’s approval, and he’s a half-dago pile of trash just like you and me! I’m personally very inspired. Thank you, Kersey!

      1. What’s with the ten second post and then delete? Does his Disqus account also have AIDS?

      2. Jesus, it just occurred to me. What if he’s posting *from* Haiti. Will that give this website a virus…a….retrovirus?

  21. To Jak and CynicalChef
    I have an article ready on Haiti. I believe it is relevant to all red-pilled men.
    I didn’t offer it to ROK (considering their last article on Haiti.)
    Would you guys publish it?

    1. To Jak and CynicalChef
      I have an article ready on Haiti. I believe it is relevant to all red-pilled men.
      I didn’t offer it to ROK (considering their last article on Haiti.)
      Would you guys publish it?

      I approve. Avoiding infecting oneself with AIDS should be every red pilled man’s goal in life.

    2. Hey, listen to this — the Kersey wants to talk. Eh gosh — imagine the nerve of the sonofabitch, eh? Craps out last night, and wants a published article today..

              1. And, of course, Cher. Why did he leave the woman half off? I’m guessing he’s a misogynist.

        1. All kidding aside, what the hell do you know about red pill? You’re a race obsessed toad who trolls others, has no long nor short term memory, and who walks around threatening violence to random guys on the interwebs. You’re a gamma cuck.

            1. Where? Where does one save his breath? Is there a vault somewhere?

              Coming to Columbus on the 7th? Cool. Look forward to meeting you. You’re the gamma, you meet me on my terms, not the other way around. But if you want to come here and say hi and have a beer, I’m more than happy to meet up.

                1. The one you deleted?

                  Um…..

                  Dude, you’re delusional. I’ve already responded to it. Please, try to read for comprehension. Remember, readers are leaders!

                    1. I’ve been instructed to tell you that if you move @GhostOfJefferson ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃˡᶦˢᵗ:disqusout, our friend in Miami will go along.

                    2. They’re gonna pick him up in front of Jack AIDSsey’s joint in an hour and a
                      half.

                      Exactly an hour and a half.

                    3. Scared? Seriously? I mean dude, you demand I come to you on a moment’s notice, take a cross country flight at my own expense, in order to apparently get into an altercation that involves the law and cops. Homey don’t play that. If you want to meet, and I’m being serious, you’re the one out jet setting, you show up in Cbus and we’ll meet for a beer or two. I don’t alter my entire life because some racist troll on the interwebs challenges me to a duel.

                2. Kersey, that restaurant has a reputation for being racist. Check the Yelp reviews. Why would you go to a racist restaurant like that?

                  1. The owners (whom I happen to know personally) responded to the review. It was a busy time of the day, and they were short of stuff, too.The people who made the review should have waited a few more minutes to be served.
                    I have dined there before. Patrons of all color and creed are welcome int hat restaurant.

                    1. But there is more than one review saying it is racist. Why are you friends with racist people, Kersey? Why do you hate black people?

                    2. No, that’s fine, when you get busy the first people you neglect are minorities. It’s just good business sense. Besides, they don’t tip.

        2. If only I could live to see it, to be there with you. What I wouldn’t
          give for twenty more minutes. Here they are protected — free to make
          their squalor without human rights and without the EPA.
          Ninety miles
          away, partnership with a friendly government — ninety miles. It’s
          nothing. Just one small step, looking for a man that wants to be
          President of the United States — and having the cash to make it
          possible.
          Kersey, we’re bigger than Sanitary Living Conditions.

                1. I like my URL’s to require 64 bit processing to get to.

        3. You’re welcome to submit the article for review. Send it through the contact page located at the top and if it’s approved, we’ll set you up as a Contributor.
          A few points that will need to be followed:
          Articles do not discuss politics or current political events nor do we discuss race.

          1. How about crazy? Can you discuss crazy? Because I bet this article is gonna be chock full of crazy!

                    1. No, no, no, we’re going to make this site famous. You’ll be known from Canada all the way to Australia.

          2. But, just to make it clear, we can still talk about HIV, right?

      1. If Kersey is interested in sending us an article, we would strongly consider publishing it. He can send it via the Contact link above, or email it to Jak (just use his name at akingscastle.com). We reserve the right to correct any spelling or grammar mistakes, but we will not change the content.

      1. So would I. So much potential.

        What places serve the best mud cookies.
        How to tell if a woman has AIDS (native) or doesn’t (tourist, maybe)
        Practical cardboard box hotel etiquette.

        So much to learn.

      2. What does it say — Badda-beep, badda-bap, badda-boop, badda-beep — He wants us to publish an article. And the promise is, that the deal is so good, that we can’t refuse to believe that Haiti is aids free. Eh…

    3. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PUBLISH THIS ARTICLE! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!

    4. Is it about Haitian migrant workers? They come here every year, you can always tell which old school buses the Haitians ride as they are always some screwy really bright color. They come here to pick watermelons and pull weeds during the summer, they won’t use a porta potti for anything they will just drop a mad deuce wherever they happen to be. If you have them picking produce, a close eye must be kept on them because they can’t just be dropping a mad deuce anywhere.

    1. Well, then, quoting will have to suffer, alright? And listen do me a
      favor, WB – No more advice on how to patch things up. Just help
      me win, please, alright?

  22. I submit, for your consideration, a theory. The part of Mr. Kersey is in fact being played by Jak…. because every single time old Special K shows up, the comments on this website fucking double, and only a third of them are recycled Godfather quotes. Prove me wrong.

      1. I mean, has anyone ever seen Jak and Special K in the same room at the same time? Nooooooooooooo

      1. So there is 37 and 97, then 104 and 61.

        Step by step, proving Jak and Kersey are in fact the same individual:
        a. First, we numerically identify Jak: 104 * 61 = 6344
        b. Adding the digits in [a]: 6 + 3 + 4 + 4 = 17
        c. Cross subtracting 104 – 97 = 7
        d. Cross subtracting the other terms 61 – 37 = 24
        e. Reducing for the cross check number, [d] – [c]: 24 – 7 = 17

        The result [e] matches the numerical identity in [b]. 17 = 17!
        It’s a match.

          1. Could be a bug in the algorithm.

            No, seriously, mostly I think because whoever it was was “out of character” so to speak, he even admitted ‘cranking it up’.

            I DID hint twice that I thought the character matched Jon Anthony (on meth) the best, but never so explicitly stated it. Since that time, I’ve also noticed JumpnJive was absent the entire time RB3 was present. Could be coincidence, not to mention the large character mismatch.

            1. Sorry Murdoc, you need to give a definitive guess. Not this “it could be X…but it could also be Y…or maybe even Z.”

              1. Geez, I’m starting to think it’s YOU.

                But that is about as best a commitment you can get out of me. Take them as my strike two and strike three if you want. I’m really just not getting anything solid on this.

  24. Home gym for me, been adding to mine for almost 30 years now. Started with nothing but a bucket of rocks to start out with for weight. Over the years I’ve had friends donate their old equipment when no longer needed, or picked up stuff at garage sales. It’s taken many years of improvising but now I’ve got a great setup. Power rack, multiple bars (olympic, trap, etc..), gymnast rings, almost 1,000 lbs of plates, there’s nothing that I feel I’m missing.
    Around Christmas I used the cash back bonus from my credit card to purchase a safety squat bar, now that I’ve had it for a few weeks I wish I’d done it sooner. Also just built a deadlift platform out of the wood from an old entertainment center I was scraping over the weekend. It might not be the fanciest but it’s perfect for what I need. I’ve always considered anything I spend on exercise equipment an investment in my own future. It may take a while to build up your equipment if you go home gym, but if you have the space it’s a great bonus to have.

    1. Helped get to 755 comments so far today. I wonder if that includes the deleted ones. Also wondering if 755 is a record here…

  25. DAMMIT! I was gone in a meeting and I missed him again. That lubed up AIDS infected slippery sonofabitch.

  26. That comment from Mr Kersey was awesome, but so also this article.

    Personally I lost some strength and gained some fat while relying on the home gym for three months during one summer. Of course it depends on the equipment and other obvious factors, but personally I find it hard to consider home gyms to be equivalent to regular gyms, although some conventional gyms can suck pretty bad because of the people going there, crowded, and limited free weights. Majorly it’s an equipment issue, but also secondary factors such as socializing, getting away from home and so on are quite important as well.
