THE TRAVELLING SCRIBE’S REED BRUSH AND PAPYRUS
“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it’s lethal.”
The wandering Buddha’s Toolbox
“Not all those who wander are lost.”
If we put all of it together, performing light exercise before a meal raises GLUT4 to the surface of the cells and increases ever so slightly the chance of what you just ate to get into muscle tissue rather than fat tissue. Bodybuilders call this the pump and have post-workout meals—the pump is not only GLUT4; it’s other things too, but we needn’t worry about those for now.
“Why do people say:”grow some balls”? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you want to be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.”
The Modern Perseus Shield
“Prepare for the worst and pray for the best.”
―Ronald A. Martin, Jr.
For instance, what I do, is one week before traveling, I start taking heavy-duty doses of vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc. I know some people are skeptical about supplementation. Some people think they don’t work. Well, what I know about those people is that they have no concept of dosage, timing, and blood concentration levels.
