Like 28374982927% of the universe's population, (if that made sense) I like things that are interesting, and, if you are a fully cognitive organism, you do as well.

The title was interesting, wasn't it? Or maybe you were interested in a new thread. Perhaps you saw my name and thought, "OH MAH GOSH! SAL MADE A THREAD! I MUST READ IT!" No matter the reason you had for clicking the thread, it all comes down to good old-fashioned interest.

I'm doing a little market research over a mass population for, well, some madman experiments, to be honest. Actually, no. I just want to hear, in all its general-ness, what you think is awesome, cool, and interesting.

No, I'm not evil.

I think listening to Nyan cat for 18 hours straight without peeing or pooping is interesting o.o

Bodybuilding and powerlifting is, for the most part, all I look forward to in my day. There are other things I think are awesome/cool/interesting like movies, series, games, music, etc, but bodybuilding and powerlifting gives me time to sculpt my body, release stress, and overall better myself. I'm there by myself or with my spotter/trainer and I think it's when I'm most focused, this is something that really matters to me. I know what I want to achieve and how to get there, but it will take a lot of patience, effort, and dedication.

I also watch videos regarding bodybuilding and powerlifting because I think it's interesting to see how they go about it. What they're doing, how they're doing it, seeing their physiques and strength. It's art.

I can't stand to work out, mostly because I have bad shoulders so any traditional "workouts feel like my bones are grinding together. I'm still one of the strongest people in my school though because I build muscle by doing tasks like splitting wood.

I'm going to be **** and say no, that did not make sense, unless you believe in multiverses, in which case you cited (2.84*10^9)8 universes. Holy cactus, that's a lot of sentient life forms.

For what I can understand, I enjoy learning what comes out of recent advances from physics and chemistry. If I'm alone, I dabble in culinary arts, which is mostly "sprinkle this in this and hope it tastes good".

This is almost a secondary necessity to a social life on campus, let alone being interesting! I like how we have a rec center right next to the science building, so all the science geeks who even care to try it out become stronger by the time they get their degree.

Which primarily puts stress on the shoulders.

That is only if you're assuming that each universe contains an equal number of sentient life forms to this one, or if you're assuming that only those universes contain sentient life forms who like interesting things, each with 100% of their populations liking interesting things.

My shoulders can handle centripetal force from splitting wood hundreds of times better than pressure from trying to bench press something. It isn't the force on them, it's how it's applied.

Not to burst your bubble or anything, but wouldn't splitting wood require work to be done to the ax and nothing else?

Also, the reason why it's harder to bench press something is because you're not only handling the weight to make it move in one direction, you're also handling the negative weight that's pressing against you. In simpler terms, imagine doing, say, bicep curls. Swinging the ax would only only be doing the part of the curl where you lift up, while benching would be doing both the part where you lift the weight up and lower it down.

I hope you understand; I know that was confusing.

That percentage sign actually wasn't supposed to be there. I meant to say that number with the addition of 5. I accidental held shift when I hit 5 and didn't catch it. I also forgot to put in "people" after the number. I was thinking of every living thing; not just sentient life forms.

Oh, and to be completely off-topic, trees aren't sentient, yet they have interest in air. I wonder who will challenge me and explain why this isn't true.

..No? Your muscles propel the ax, which is now moving away from your body but the anchor point is your shoulders which receive most of this force and make the ax arc. Simple really.

I know, my shoulders can't handle the constant pressure. I must have misshapen sockets or something. Honestly, I don't know.

No, you didn't understand. Your applying force to the ax, not the wood. I didn't say your shoulders weren't working.

Ok. I thought you were saying benching was only hard because you were pressing weight against them, and that's why benching was harder. Even if you meant that, it would've still been understandable to have been wrong. I didn't know you had a medical condition.

Learning is awesome, making new connections in my brain is awesome, having imagination and using it to create is awesome! Walking outside or riding my bike when the weather is perfect is awesome! Finding awesome stuff is awesome! When my GF agree to do kinky stuff is awesome! xD
I can't help it, I'm a happy person, except when I talk about politics because I become a jerk and that's not awesome.

I don't follow. Are you saying people's responses are about my OP and aren't on-topic? If so, I disagree. I won't give you the lowdown on that unless you want it.
