Well, don't forget that the running will up your metabolism throughout the day so you're burning more calories even when you're not running. And you continue to burn fat up to an hour after you run. So even if you burn 500 calories while running, the after burn is going to be more. But look into HIIT which, from everything I've read, allows you to continue burning fat up to 24 hours after you workout if you're doing it the way you're supposed to. I've found it to be very effective for me. And like Pratt said, what you're eating makes a big difference. But I guess all that is for the fitness thread.


didnt realize that one of those threads existed, my mistake. anyways, some interesting things in here ill have to look into. danke'

Hmm. I don't eat very much when I know I'm running later, just because I don't want something sitting heavily in my stomach, and don't have much of an appetite for a least a couple hours after a run, so I virtually always end up eating a lot less on days I run, as long as iIdon't pig out late at night. Everyone's different, I guess.

I'll get stomach cramps if I eat less than 2 hours before running, but I pretty much always easy right after a run. I don't eat as much as I normally do, though.

Orchestra or train?


Orchestra. I mean, the people playing the instruments are the stars here, not the person keeping them in line, right?

depends, a lot of time they're taking on brand new people into the orchestra and helping get them into top performing shape, plus they practice them all week like a coach would. and the musicians leave and new ones come in so they haven't played together. they do a lot

There once was this guy who worked for the Railroad as a conductor. He was walking through the train, en route, collecting tickets from the passengers. He comes to car 12, booth 3. In it was a man. So, he asked him for his ticket: "Excuse me sir, do have your ticket?"
"Oh, I am soooo sorry, I dropped it out the window by accident," he replied.
"Sorry sir, can't have any passengers without tickets." He grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and threw him out of the train. Well, he landed on the tracks and was run over by the train. Naturally, the conductor was arrested and thrown in jail. He was convicted of murder before a jury of his peers, and sentenced to death by electrocution.
The day of his execution came up, and he was asked what he would like for his last meal. He asks for a banana. They gave it to him, he ate it, received his last rites, and was escorted to the chair. The executioner strapped him in, hooked everything up. Last, he threw the big switch once, and nothing happened. So, he did it again, and nothing happened. Well, by law the guy was legally dead, so they had to release him.
Oddly enough, the guy got a job on another railroad, as a conductor! One day, he was gathering tickets, and came to a booth with a little boy.
"Young man, do you have your ticket?", asked the conductor.
"A-a-a, I'm sorry, I ate it by mistake..", said the little boy.
And.. the same thing happened -- the boy was thrown off the train and killed . The guy was arrested, sentenced to death by electrocution. It came to him last day. The death row guard asked him what he would like for his meal. He asked for banana again. He ate it, and a priest gave him last rites.
He was escorted to the death chamber. This time, though, they were smart.
They washed his hands to get rid of any banana slime, they washed up the chair. Next, they placed him the chair, and hooked him up. The switch-puller pulled the switch once, and nothing happened. The switch-puller pulled the switch twice, and nothing happened, not even a single hair raising on the guy's chest.
Well, as the law says, they had to let him go...
Even more amazingly, he got a job on yet another railroad.
This time it was a rabbi. Same old stuff. Rabbi had no ticket (he forgot to buy it). Guy threw him off the train, rabbi died. Guy was arrested, convicted, sentenced to death by electrocution.
When the guard asked him what he would like for a last meal, he asked for a banana. He ate it, received last rites, and was escorted to the chamber.
However, this time the officials where going to get it right! They scrubbed his body with a brillo pad. They scrubbed the chair with steel wool. They tried the chair on a few other prisoners...
Okay, they strapped him in, and threw the switch once, nothing happened. Threw the switch a second time, nothing happened. At this point the guy was legally dead, etc, etc.
But, before the guy could leave, the executioner, extremely frustrated (he'd seen this same guy three times already). asked, "What is it with the banana!"
The guy replied, "I just like bananas."
So, the executioner screamed, "THEN HOW COME YOU DON'T DIE!!!!!"
"I dunno," replied the guy, "I guess I'm just a bad conductor."

Yeah, I emailed the guy to see if that's okay. The page only has my name on the page, so maybe he'd think it's fake.

Someone recently just told me that conductor joke. Said it was really obnoxious when they heard it because it went on and on. Something like 15 minutes. Could have been hyperbole though. I don't know. Wish I could remember who told me.

15 minutes is a ridiculous amount of time.

You work with Mel Tillis?
Drunk and stupid is no way to be remembered but it is an easy way to forget.

But I took them away from all that. Now they work for me.
