Laurel St Family Business Conglomerate

This blog no longer has as much of a focus anymore. What started as a health and fitness chronicle has been badly derailed by life. There is less a focus on my daily regime and more on things I find interesting, a lot of which is health related.

When I do get into fitness, I'm a subscriber of the primal/paleo health and fitness lifestyle and I enjoy lifting heavy shit.

I love music and goofy shit and really sublime artwork. If you like history, dick jokes, boxing, and Amelie, you'll dig me

This is one of the earliest moments that I can remember that showed me what violence in America really consists of. Elian Gonzalez was the same age as the child victims from Sandy Hook when a SWAT team stormed the home where he was staying and pointed an automatic weapon in his face.  He didn’t commit a crime, he didn’t pose a threat to anyone, he was a 6 year old child. 
Janet Reno, the highest authority in the United States on law and justice, ordered this assault.  We live in a paranoid and primitive society that was founded on violence… why is anyone surprised when these tragedies happen?






youre a fucking moron. a stupid uninformed moron. i too was riveted by the elian gonzalez drama when it was happening. but what your stupidity is forgetting or omitting to make some grand idiotic statement on how terrible the US is, is that elian was being held against his fathers wishes. his mother essentially kidnapped elian from his father and put the kid (and herself) on a raft from cuba to the US, a dangerous journey which she didnt survive (thats some parenting there). then her stupid fucking relatives in FL literally held elian captive against elians fathers wishes where he was living in cuba. they were kidnapping him. & the father wanted him back in cuba with him, obviously. and the US made many many attempts to get these stupid fucking asshole relatives to place elian with his father. where he belonged. the us was trying to do the right thing. a whole year of negotiations/court cases with these idiots failed, because they wanted to keep this child that wasnt theirs. so the govt did the right thing and made them give up the child. which is what is happening in the photo. this photo didnt have to happen if the relatives just gave elian up like the father wanted. they were defiant against the fathers wishes and against the US courts which upheld a fathers right to his own child, no matter where the father wants to live. i know cuba is a shitty place, and elian was prob better off staying here in this country, but you cant deny a father his child. thats some fucking retarded liberal jujitsu to try and turn this case around against the US. they did the right thing in returning a child to his father. you fucking moron.

A knuckleball has minimal spin, causing unpredictable motion

Unbelievably hard to catch. Even harder to hit.

My childhood was spent rooting for Tim Wakefield so I always have love in my heart for the knuckleball.  This gif is absolutely perfect in showing how wacky the pitch truly is.
