Some cool men fitness images:
Nerdercise Fitness training (underpants optional)

Over the years I’ve had gym contracts, gone running, tried to cycle
more often. I even tried skipping once. Nothing really worked for me,
mainly because it was really boring. Then there is the tedium of
actually having to *go* somewhere to exercise, a total pain. For the
last 5 years or so I have mostly worked from home. That situation has
an implicit proximity to snacks, and a marked lack of reason to shift
ones arse very often.
I’ve kind of figured out a method that works for me. It works for me
because it takes advantage and makes virtue of my nerd-like existence.
I started about a month ago and am much fitter, happier and healthier.
Here’s all you need:
an exercise bike (mid range, about £100, Amazon)
a pair of 4.5kg dumbells(turned out I only need the one so give
me a shout if you want the other)
5lb ankle weights (optional but v. useful)
Underpants (optional, but I recommend them and hey, if you’re
like me you’re probably sitting in them right now so, handy!)
a printer (or access to one)
favourite TV shows (the more mega-movie length the better, The
Wire/Sopranos/West Wing ideal at 40 minute + run-time)
video player software
Every day at what would otherwise be my lunchtime (no-one else is
really working at 1pm so you’re unlikely to miss many emails) I wheel
out my bike, plonk it in front of my monitor and load up the latest
episode of Dexter, Mad Men, House, Fringe, Flash Forward etc.
For the next 35 minutes I am mostly unaware of my body churning through
15km of cycling, sweat dripping, and the 350 calories burned as I focus
on the show. The cycle finished I go to the printed sheet of where I am
in my 100 Push-ups or 200 Sit-ups schedule (I
alternate each day) and start doing them on the floor in front of my
computer (I have a mat but you don’t really need one). After each rep
(less than 30 seconds each) you rest for 60 seconds, during which I
re-focus on the show (I’ve been listening of course) and then continue
This puts you almost perfectly at the end of a 42 minute show. On the
weekends I switch to shows like Community, Californication and Bored to
Death as they are shorter at 25-30 minutes and so I get a bit of a
workout but nothing too strenuous (I don’t do pushups/situps on the
After a week or so your brain should have conflated exercise with TV
Nerd pleasure, so you find yourself looking at the time to see if
you can get your bike out. Heck, sometimes I can’t stand the
anticipation so get it out early (have you *seen* the latest episode of
Mad Men!?). As opposed to *any* other exercise routine I’ve tried to
get into in the past (skateboarding excluded – aside from the pain
that’s pure pleasure for me) this one has actually worked. Not only is
daily exercise of greater than 30 minutes part of my routine, it is
something I both look forward to and find pleasurable. And there you
have it, being a TV nerd could be the best thing that’s happened to
your general health and well-being since those 3 evenings you made it
to the gym you still pay for and never visit.

Written on the Georgia Guidestones are these ten desires of the New World Order:
THE MESSAGE OF THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES
1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion – faith – tradition – and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth – beauty – love – seeking harmony with the infinite.
10.Be not a cancer on the earth – Leave room for nature.
On one of the highest hilltops in Elbert County, Georgia stands a huge granite monument. Engraved in eight different languages on the four giant stones that support the common capstone are 10 Guides, or commandments. That monument is alternately referred to as The Georgia Guidestones, or the American Stonehenge. Though relatively unknown to most people, it is an important link to the Occult Hierarchy that dominates the world in which we live.
The origin of that strange monument is shrouded in mystery because no one knows the true identity of the man, or men, who commissioned its construction. All that is known for certain is that in June 1979, a well-dressed, articulate stranger visited the office of the Elberton Granite Finishing Company and announced that he wanted to build an edifice to transmit a message to mankind. He identified himself as R. C. Christian, but it soon became apparent that was not his real name. He said that he represented a group of men who wanted to offer direction to humanity, but to date, almost two decades later, no one knows who R. C. Christian really was, or the names of those he represented. Several things are apparent. The messages engraved on the Georgia Guidestones deal with four major fields: (1) Governance and the establishment of a world government, (2) Population and reproduction control, (3) The environment and man’s relationship to nature, and (4) Spirituality.
In the public library in Elberton, I found a book written by the man who called himself R.C. Christian. I discovered that the monument he commissioned had been erected in recognition of Thomas Paine and the occult philosophy he espoused. Indeed, the Georgia Guidestones are used for occult ceremonies and mystic celebrations to this very day. Tragically, only one religious leader in the area had the courage to speak out against the American Stonehenge, and he has recently relocated his ministry.
Limiting the population of the earth to 500 million will require the extermination of nine-tenths of the world’s people. The American Stonehenge’s reference to establishing a world court foreshadows the current move to create an International Criminal Court and a world government. The Guidestones’ emphasis on preserving nature anticipates the environmental movement of the 1990s, and the reference to "seeking harmony with the infinite" reflects the current effort to replace Judeo-Christian beliefs with a new spirituality.
The message of the American Stonehenge also foreshadowed the current drive for Sustainable Development. Any time you hear the phrase "Sustainable Development" used, you should substitute the term "socialism" to be able to understand what is intended. Later in this syllabus you will read the full text of the Earth Charter which was compiled under the direction of Mikhail Gorbachev and Maurice Strong. In that document you will find an emphasis on the same basic issues: control of reproduction, world governance, the importance of nature and the environment, and a new spirituality. The similarity between the ideas engraved on the Georgia Guidestones and those espoused in the Earth Charter reflect the common origins of both.
Yoko Ono, the widow of John Lennon, was recently quoted as referring to the American Stonehenge, saying:
"I want people to know about the stones … We’re headed toward a world where we might blow ourselves up and maybe the globe will not exist … it’s a nice time to reaffirm ourselves, knowing all the beautiful things that are in this country and the Georgia Stones symbolize that. " (1)
What is the true significance of the American Stonehenge, and why is its covert message important? Because it confirms the fact that there was a covert group intent on
(1) Dramatically reducing the population of the world.
(2) Promoting environmentalism.
(3) Establishing a world government.
(4) Promoting a new spirituality.
Certainly the group that commissioned the Georgia Guidestones is one of many similar groups working together toward a New World Order, a new world economic system, and a new world spirituality. Behind those groups, however, are dark spiritual forces. Without understanding the nature of those dark forces it is impossible to understand the unfolding of world events.
The fact that most Americans have never heard of the Georgia Guidestones or their message to humanity reflects the degree of control that exists today over what the American people think. We ignore that message at our peril.
