Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

I Am Officially Obsessed with Resistance Bands
Jul 24, 2016 - 8:46 PM - by livius drusus
For ages I did the same ol' pilates video that I started doing a couple of years after college when I threw my back out cleaning the kitchen floor. It did the trick and I never had back problems again, but it was pretty desultory, exercise-wise.

Recently my mom had to do some physio after a knee injury and she used resistance bands. Out of curiosity more than anything, I got some of my own and tried them. Next thing you know, I was YouTubing and Googling every resistance band exercise I could find, grouping them into routines by body part, discarding ones I didn't like and replacing them with ones I did.

That was two months ago and I've settled into a five day a week program of arms, abs, legs, back then repeating whichever one of the four I feel like doing again on Saturday. I use the lowest resistance band still, but I'm already significantly stronger. The benefits in jar opening alone have been worth it all.

Musings on BLM in relations to Current Events
Jul 18, 2016 - 6:52 PM - by capob
Since my previous post was so well received, I thought I would post another. I really enjoyed reading the replies hahahaha.

It is relatively easy to get poor people to play the victim. That is, it is rather easy to fabricate injustices or fantasies of justice to rile up those who seek reasons for their low state. This can be seen with poor muslims, this can be seen with poor whites, this can be seen with poor blacks, and this can be seen with virtually any classifiable group of poor humans.

And, just like a gang seeking protection money, governments can benefit from controlled chaos and controlled opposition.

Controlled chaos is thus found in the creation of groups that group sections of disadvantaged people. BLM happens to be one such group.

The nature of controlled chaos groups tends to be the provisions of opportunity for and support of chaos. In other words, such a group provides a pool from which an extremist can be chosen to commit an extremist action, and that group will then support that extremist's action before and after, but the committing of the extremist's action tends to be a consequence of incitement.

So, the question that comes when one of these groups commits an extremist act is, "was this incited naturally or artificially?". That is, did the group controllers, (often government), incite this, or was it spontaneous or reactive.

Some events, like the Ferguson riots, might only take a small amount of artificial incitement. Other events are so artificial, the extremist is only used as a patsy.

Detecting the level of artificiality in an event can be done by finding discrepancies in the narrative, and analysing how the news covers the event, but detecting whether an event is artificial is rarely of much importance. Instead, the question should be, of what consequence is the event in regards to politics and powers.

Based on the ramp up of BLM violent activity and... [Read More]
