    [–] What are you YEARS behind on? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in AskReddit

    My goals, and probably my retirement investments/savings

    [–] This is why I always tell cyclists to take the lane JayTheFordMan 12 points ago in bicycling

    Yup, bus driver shouldn't have even attempted to pass at that point.

    [–] Near-misses preceded British cyclist Mike Hall's death, inquest hears (2nd Day of Inquest) JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in ausbike

    Well aware of this, and I should have clarified. I know it's a very real phenomenon, having seen it and experienced it.

    It's the worst thing that is cyclists have to face

    [–] Near-misses preceded British cyclist Mike Hall's death, inquest hears (2nd Day of Inquest) JayTheFordMan 5 points ago in ausbike

    Interesting choice of language from some of the drivers, "...He (Hall) almost hit me" , as if they are the victims here. And of course the "I didn't see him", when we all know the guy is no idiot and would have had lights and appropriate clothing".

    [–] deadlift way out of proportion to squat? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in Fitness

    I agree with you, and I have a long torso which meant I was very conscious of this when I first started deadlifting. Very quickly realising the focus of the push and engagement of glutes/hamstrings, pulling isn't the thing here for sure.

    My point regarding glute strength is that this engagement you use/require for deadlifts is not as readily recognised as an important thing for squats (or at least equally important as in deadlifts), and as such not recognised as impacting squat performance.

    [–] Homebrewing vs drinking problem advice JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in Homebrewing

    I'm somewhat the same, though I have yet to start my venture into Homebrewing (though its gonna happen), but I too find I can moderate my drinking easily on my own but easily lose the plot with company leading to me feeling like shit mentally and physically. I guess with company I get carried away, easy to do when you want to get into socialising, and letting others manage your intake rather than just you.

    What I have found that works is go smaller glasses, and start with lower alc beers to start (sours, farmhouse brews a good plan ;) ), then treat yourself to a bigger beer at the end as a treat. Oh, and drinking with food really is a good tool to slow down and pace yourself, plus its healthier :)

    [–] deadlift way out of proportion to squat? JayTheFordMan 3 points ago in Fitness

    Mmm, you think? I know they contribute a lot to both lifts, but figured they do more with squats for stability and power out of the hole, so to speak.

    At the end of the day, weak glutes is an issue, and fixing them solves a lot of problems. No matter the lift

    [–] Problems with deadlift form. Severe upper back rounding JayTheFordMan 7 points ago in Fitness

    I agree with Rows, especially bent over rows, can make a big difference to deadlift form and performance

    [–] deadlift way out of proportion to squat? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in Fitness

    I'm the same, but am certain that weak glutes/hamstrings are the main reason my squat is shit compared to deadlifts. Been working on them hard, and already showing improvements in my squats.

    [–] How many of you guys pee in the shower/bath? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Pretty much routinely in the shower, bath never

    [–] How many of you guys pee in the shower/bath? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Dump some bleach down the drain and smell dies ;)

    [–] Are men over 45 interested in serious (marriage, kids, etc.) relationships with 30 something women? JayTheFordMan 6 points ago in AskMenOver30

    Very dependent on the guy. I've known young at heart 50 yr olds that want commitment and kids, so definitely they are out there.

    Me personally, I've done the marriage and have a beautiful daughter, and now after separation I have no interest in more kids and prefer to find a true equal partner in crime moving on, sharing life. serious about my relationships, but right now don't want to invest as far as kids.

    So yeah, its up to you to have these discussions and work out exactly what both of you want. Move from there, and never assume he will change.

    [–] What’s your Go To Drink? JayTheFordMan 3 points ago in Coffee

    Macchiato, or if they have a clue I'll have a 3 shot flat white :)

    Yes, I'm Australian

    [–] Anyone change careers at 40 and how did you do it? JayTheFordMan 13 points ago in AskMenOver30

    Generally my strategy

    I've switched industries a few times, but all have revolved around my core skillset that is Chemistry. Sometimes sidestepping can be a reasonable strategy.

    [–] Swine!!! JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in funny

    I've seen, and Texas I hear is crazy.

    We have similar problems in Australia, and I don't know if we have any better lid on these creatures.

    [–] Swine!!! JayTheFordMan 3 points ago in funny

    Good argument against veganism. We should rise up and demand greater pork consumption!

    [–] Travel Question JayTheFordMan 12 points ago in australia

    I doubt they will ask questions, but just keep proof of return ticket (e-ticket/booking fine) and perhaps copy of bank statement showing you have cash for your stay. They just want to know you can pay your way, and show you don't intend to work, and it's actually a visit.

    [–] I call this 'The usual suspects'. The most common birds of my neighbourhood JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in australia

    Don't forget the Black Parrots, white and red tailed. Noisy fuckers that spend all day tearing apart tree nuts/seeds and dropping them on your car.
