Hi, I think that we live in a modern society and can't have citizens that break the law to the left and the right. I'm all for what Snowden has done, but I think Obama must act like a strong leader, and show what happens to people that doesn't respect his authority. He should say that he pardons Snowden, then; as soon as Snowden puts his foot on U.S. soil, he should capture him, put him in a cage and parade him around Washington for all to see what happens to people that doesn't abide by the law. /Leif Bork

Comment Higher Free IGF-1 Levels (Score 1) 97

Why the hell can't it be related to higher free IGF-1 levels?

There are studies indicating that obese people have higher free IGF-1 levels.

There are also studies saying that high levels of IGF-1 are linked to a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease and subclinical brain atrophy:

Comment Profylax (Score 1) 6

In Sweden, you can do something called patentprofylax. You publish information about an idea to make it impossible for others to patent it as an innovation, since the idea can't be considered new at the time somebody else tries to patent it. Here, you could just do the publishing in any nisched or local newspaper, and that should be enough. But note that it might stop you from patenting it as well.

Comment Re: Radicalization (Score 1) 868

Saw an interview with the UN deputy secretary-general last night. He, albeit somewhat carefully, and in Swedish, stated that the Israeli response is disproportionate. Also, seen a lot of interviews with experts on international law. Almost all stated that the response is disproportionate. So, seems like the Hamas propaganda have gotten deep into both the UN - and previously considered independent international experts then. Last figures I heard, was that 4 Israeli civilians have been killed. Hopefully, the 900 civilian pseudo lives claimed to have been disposed of in Gaza (and about 5000 pseudo civilians wounded), only amounts to at most 4 real cases of dead civilians! That's great news!

You could do something really exhausting for a short period of time.
Get a chin/pull-up bar and use it before work. Do 3-4 reps where you're about completely drained of energy after each rep.
Here you could see how GH and testosterone levels depend on rest length in between repetitions

For back and stomach you can do V pull-ups:

Or; easier but less muscles (breasts, back, biceps, forearms):

(If you really need front shoulders and triceps as well, you could complement with push-ups).

That's about the whole upperbody if you put in some ear wiggling.

If you're really nerdy, you can build this one for recovery:
A cooling glove, that vacuum pumps the hand in order to keep up circulation from the hand, while cooling it, in order to quickly cool the core temperature after
exercise, without cooling the muscles. According to this Stanford article, this will give better recovery than steroids, for some very strange reason.

Here's something about high intensity training, where you do 3 minutes of really uncomfortable exercise per week:

You may choose to answer this question:
- Why?
or this one:
- Another question that you would like me to have asked instead, resembling questions that often conclude stories here and that is relating to the subject in the same way.

Thank you, and God bless our soft, neardy guts.
