Yes, but few strength training exercises require sticking your ass up in the air and waving it back and forth like that.
Straight leg dead lift. bent rows, and back hyperextension off the top of my head. And while we're on the subject of distracting and embarrassing, there's always leg abduction.
Anyhow, people are jerks toward anyone who gets serious about anything, whether it's biking, power lifting, or building electronics. You're supposed to be normal, not exceptional. That makes it easy to be a sanctimonious prig toward people who like things you don't have what it takes to try.
Ever go to a gym where there's rules about making too much noise because you'll scare the casuals? It's stupid. There's a woman in my gym, an ex-marine, who can dead lift over 2 1/2 her body weight, which for a woman puts her in the elite range. When I walk into the gym and she's doing it, I have to walk out because she sounds like a harpy ripping the head off a dragon. But it's my problem, not hers. That's what it takes for her to do her thing, and I'm not going to make her feel bad about it because it's awesome. Literally.
Celebrate people who dare to look, sound, or even be ridiculous. Even if it bothers you, that's not the same thing as harming you. The people who do harm are the self-appointed conformity police. The ones who automatically go after anyone who doesn't appear normal. "Normal" is must another word for "mediocre".
The capital expense for solar is significantly lower than coal - and it is much quicker to build. If you start building a coal plant and a solar plant of equal capacity at the same time -the solar plant will be done in 2 years, the coal plant is a minimum of 7 and 10 is more common. The solar plant will also cost a fraction. Every coal plant in Africa was built by the government - most solar plants were privately funded (because it's a much more sensible investment for a private investor).
And of course, solar can be done economically at any scale - people stick it on their roofs to produce for one family. And to really hammer how cheap it is - my dad is an electrical engineer and he did the math, if you BORROW the money to do that, the money you save on power bills will be enough to pay back the loan AND the interest before you even need to replace the batteries - and in fact will pay for the replacements and STILL make a profit.
Well, I guess the moral of the story for you is: suffer or die.
However Trump has promised to bring those coal mining jobs back and make Wales great again!
He's going to bring back the whale oil industry.
Why would you use spanner? It has proprietary APIs (ok, yes you can run a SELECT, but only using their database drivers if available for the language/framework you use, but not INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE etc.), isn't faster than Aurora (http://2ndwatch.com/blog/benchmarking-amazon-aurora/), and is more expensive for the same performance.
These days, Google seems to be spending more effort on PR than engineering
Yes, but we're both wise enough to know that was a crock of shit, and that it was actually done for profit.
Of course. That's why I'm so suspicious of moral crusaders. Scratch one, and you'll find an opportunist underneath.
Like Viet Nam, for example.
We're both old enough to remember that Vietnam, like most US wars, was sold to us as a moral crusade.
My wife is an oceanographer. I'll tell her to get right on it.
If you look in the FEMA site, they say that they provide gramts to perform repairs not covered by insurance. And no, they don't do a needs test. Now, the typical rich person does not let their insurance lapse just so that they can get a FEMA grant. Because such a grant is no sure thing. They also point out that SBA loans are the main source of assistance following a disaster. You get a break on interest, but you have to pay them back.
