Pinterest, are you serious?


“Reverses bulking.” Right. Because all of the girls who will end up reading this probably suffer from “I went to the gym, used the elliptical, did 50 crunches, and suddenly I’m the Hulk” Syndrome and can’t seem to figure out how to make those big muscles go away.

Anyway, if you click through to the source website, you will be told that the key to a getting a “perky butt” is to target your lats, because they crisscross across your back to connect to your glutes. That’s right, apparently targeting your lats will give you a better butt than, you know, doing an exercise that actually targets your butt. Maybe you’re supposed to clench a lot?


Excellent Execution

“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals―sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”
