I am glad to wake up in the morning with a full length mirror next to my bed, so I can wake up to chiseled perfection every morning.

Nothing gets me ready for bed quite like another abdominal workout. I did 100 reverse crunches, 75 normal crunches, 50 toe touches and 25 toe raises tonight.

In order to be a Hollywood stud, I need a handsome, presentable face and a muscular, tight core. Not everyone has that, but it definitely helps those that do have that.

And these days, to be completely hairless.  Does anyone else remember the days when actors were allowed to have body hair?  In fact at one point it was not only acceptable for an actor to have body hair it was almost mandatory - some actors had to wear chest wigs (I think Sean Connery was one such actor).  That changed some time during my university days, I wonder what happened?

The standard of beauty changed?
I operate under Crocker's rules. Feel free to be mean to me, if it'll help us communicate more effectively.

Hence why it is an important thing to also know a good place to get a wax. I've got a number of lotions and tonics that look to be pretty good for use after a wax.

Also mandatory; a good hair stylist.

Well obviously.  That's like answering, "What was the cause of death of the victim?" with, "He stopped being alive." It's not actually answering the question.  WHY did beauty standards very suddenly shift during that time to child-like full body hairlessness being desirable and why has it persisted over a decade later?  But I think you knew full well that's what I meant.

IMO I think a lack of hair makes musculature stand out more, hence why so few bodybuilders likewise shave up or wax before a show; see https://www.instagram.com/jeff_seid/?hl=en this guy.

And I agree with that - if you don't have hair it tends to make individual striations and toned areas stand out more, which is in my opinion quite attractive a look especially on myself.

I wish we could have Pierre Trudeau as Prime Minister again. He'd make Donald Trump make the Donald Trump we actually have look completely calm, cool, collected, sane, and rational.

There's a Pokemon-copy of an anime about Kung-fu dinosaur trainers...

I only now found out about it as my kids are watching it on morning TV but so far it looks like low quality show. Lots of CGI as well.

EDIT: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinosaur_King for those who are curious.

The Team-Rocket expies (the ALPHA gang) are about as scary as the original team but spend more time fighting each other. Also, somehow despite being dumber than Team Rocket they manage to beat the heroes in the episode I saw.

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

After reading the first paragraph of Sharon's post here, I wonder if ad blockers reduce the amount of people complaining about ads, allowing sites to get away with making their ads more obnoxious.
