Allora, mio padre mi fa: «Ho comprato un libro piuttosto particolare». E io non mi aspettavo una cosa del genere. E’ un libro di 1250 pagine, con al suo interno una sola parola: “Jew” (ebreo). Ripetuta per 6 milioni di volte. 6 milioni. 6.000.000. Proprio come gli ebrei sterminati durante l’Olocausto. E, ecco, sono un po’ senza parole. Vi traduco l’introduzione del libro. 

6 milioni. 

6.000.000

Questo numero è inciso permanentemente nella coscienza ebraica.

Dì questo numero a qualcuno e l’associazione più immediata sarà con l’Olocausto.

Sei milioni di ebrei furono uccisi dai Nazisti e dai loro collaboratori.

Ci sono musei come Yad Vashem.  

Ci sono giorni come lo Yom HaSho’a.

Ci sono programmi speciali, letture, film, fotografie. 

A volte abbiamo bisogno di concentrarci sui nostri pensieri. 

Questo libro intero contiene una sola parola: Jew (ebreo). 

Compare in 40 colonne per 120 righe su ciascuno dei 625 fogli (1250 pagine).

Ogni pagina ha 4800 ebrei su di sé.

Ci sono sei milioni di ebrei in questo libro. 

Scorri le pagine. Scegline una a caso. Tieni tra le mani il libro. Guarda come le parole e le colonne sembrano solo un disegno. 

Ora guarda più da vicino. Concentrati sul “Jew”. Pensa a quella parola come se fosse un vero ebreo. Un parente, forse, o un amico. Magari sei proprio tu. 

Una persona viva, che respira. 

Uccisa dai Nazisti e dai loro collaboratori. 

Ora scegli una riga a caso. Un’intera famiglia. Genitori e fratelli, zie e zii, cugini. Tutti morti. 

Prendi un’altra riga, ora. Forse rappresenta la tua classe a scuola. O un gruppo di amici e vicini. 

Un’intera pagina potrebbe rappresentare una bella comunità ebraica, da qualche parte in Europa - spazzata via. 

Questo libro contiene la parola “Jew” per 6.000.000 volte. 

E ciascuna parola fu qualcuno.

Uomini, donne, e bambini. 

Se ne sono andati. 

Ma li ricordiamo. 

Wow this is brilliant.

Bloated to shit so here’s some dumb faces and flexing

Time to do some weak squats. Hopefully it doesn’t take too long to go back to pre-injury squat strength.

Ma’am, I’m going to have to ask you to put those guns away.

Top 5 tumblr for goofy selfies, nice booties, girl power, and food posts. And other stuff.

Something about cooperative learning

makes me want to die.

So many of these activities are contrived and don’t provide enough time or attention to the actual content.

I dunno.

Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks

Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.

No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip…

Land of the free home of the rich

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make they least, they pay the most.

…wait, what?

Welcome. ARM YOURSELVES WITH KNOWLEDGE.

Canada 10.25*

You should also know that (in most cases, it does get complicated) minimum wage here in Aus is also subject to “loading”. For example if you work an evening or night shift, add 20%. Work Saturday, add 50%. Sunday might be 100% I can’t remember. I once worked Xmas day as overtime shift and made 300%.
So you can make quite a reasonable income without an “elite” sort of occupation if you put in the hours.

Cost of living is substantially higher in most/all of those countries. Clothes, food, housing and basically everything EXCEPT health care and education are much more expensive. Taxes are typically much higher as well.

Australia is still where I’d like to end up if I could.

My favorite part of Fred Hatfield’s (unfortunately out-of-print) powerlifting book is where he talks about the squat form of various elite powerlifters.

Super cool.
