Worst shooting in US history...isn't this the 4th time we've changed that in like 10 years? At this rate, Trump will be the least of the USA's problems before long.

Got a call saturday to confirm a consultation appointment at my dentist for today at 7, which I was neither told about nor agreed to. I dropped my scheduled stuff back a couple hours to make it...

The fucking dentist isn't open til 9...

They close at 7....

No one is answering or calling me to see where I am...

@Dincrest yeah, I think I'll go again next year, but I'm probably going to actually train for the event instead of just coming in all "hurr me strong me lift things!". Gotta find a weighted sled for dragging to practice with now....

@Tomara Well, as long as I'm not wearing that unsightly lime green vest and purple pants combo I'm happy to be the resident wallcrusher.

Thanks dude. Honestly, I feel like we got screwed a little by the last guy jumping in, the plane was moving already, he just added extra weight to our total. Still, was a worthy attempt for our first try ever...especially when you consider we spent no actual time training for it.

Second pull attempt for low weight, took 9 of us, combined weight of 2080 pounds.
@Dincrest I know you wanted to see it.

Welp, we came in about 21st for time, but I blame that on a bad start, my team was all over the place when the horn blew. Second try was for lowest total weight to move the plane,  we came in 8th for that at 2080lbs with 9 people, though I blame that on my last dude just running in and pulling before we called him in. Still, wasn't terrible. 2 teams beat us by less than 20lbs, 1 by only 2 and a half pounds. We also pulled WAAAAYYYYYYY late so I think nerves may have finally just settled down and adrenaline subsided, lost a lot of drive at that point

Still, 8th out of over 50 teams. Not terrible.

Pulling up to the airport now. We pull in about 2 hours. I'm so not excited I can't even feign enthusiasm. Fuck mornings.

For 20+ years Inhad no credit card in my family. In the last 3 years I've built my credit up quickly and now have 3. I still find it semi useless, but the luxury of attaching it to my phone and paying for things with a swipe of my phone is pretty swanky.

Back to @Agent D's plane pull... is it getting televised or streamed anywhere?  Because I'd want to watch.
Uhh....idk actually. I'm gonna have a video of my team's attempt for sure, but as far as an actual televised thing, search me. Maybe on the local news channels in new jersey, it's being held at Newark airport.

My bad. I didn't notice it.
I told you guys, I went at the start of september. I have to get two wisdom teeth pulled and 1 tooth needs a cap. I asked the dentist however to hold off on amy procedures that may inhibit my ability to train at the gym until after the plane pull. I'm "SCHEDULED" for a follow up in november, but after this saturday I'm going to push for a closer date.

My bad. I did not catch that. Good on you. You'll definitely be thankful once the shit is said and done.
It's cool, and it's not like it's unreasonably farfetched to think I hadn't done anything about it. It's just hysterically funny that this close to the event, my tooth wants to act up. I know it's just pressure along the gums and nerves because of the teeth "adjusting" due to the broken tooth, and thankfully it may already be done as it hasn't hurt since yesterday, but I'm still gonna finish these problems off as soon as I can call in an apointment aftet saturday. Matter of fact, I'm doing a whole slew of changes after the plane pull. Dieting, some weight loss, some long overdue doctor visits, and maybe even re-doing my bedroom...the feng shui is way off.

Well that just plain sucks.  Hope the tooth decides to cooperate in time. 

Happens to the best of us.  I've had to either go wimp-mode or bow out of event rides due to health issues (e.g. bad knee, stomach virus) and it always bit big wind.
It's such a dull ache, barely noticeable until I stop doing things, but that's pretty much a guarantee to happen when I hit the sack. I've been sleeping crappily because of it the last 2 days, and pain relievers only help for a couple hours.

Meanwhile, I managed a 305 Standing Military Push Press today...hell of a way to end my heavy lifting training before the plane pull. After that, I'm focusing ALL of my efforts on dropping a few pounds.

Drunken D. rant time.

On the one hand, punishing Arti for having an opinion about cops (regardless of narrow minded it is) isn't exactly what I would call fair. Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one, and most of us don't wanna know about anyone else's (also, most stink or and are just full of shit). Doesn't mean we oughta throw the book at someone for having a shitty asshole or opinion...

On the other hand Arti's fucking opinion is almost troll worthy in how it's obviously an attempt to rile people up with no intellectual backing. My uncle was a cop for 20 year and he's one of the most respectable men I know. I have friends who are cops and they've probably done more good in the last 48 hours than Arti'll do in the next 48 months. Seriously, get the hell out of your 3 square block perimeter and experience more than the Olive Garden and reddit can show you. If I were a more easily upset person I'd probably be using more.foul language and insults but thankfully I'm fairly toasted after a long evening and this caught me before I passed out...

@goosey, you're a strict mod, but a good one too. Keep at it sir!
