    [–] Indiana sees surge in early voting vs. 2014 midterm election LetsGoBlackhawks2014 1 points ago in IndianaPolitics

    My wife and I voted this past Saturday and the first time we showed up it was a 2+ hour wait. We went back later (right before closing) and it was still an hour wait for us. This is in Greenwood by the way.

    [–] Question about Apartments on the South Side LetsGoBlackhawks2014 1 points ago in indianapolis

    I still live there but I'd say it has gone downhill since I moved in 5+ years ago. They really have not updated anything , all the trees are dying around here, yet they keep increasing the rent year after year.

    [–] Pi Zero as an ADS-B receiver, keeps losing connection to its DVB-T device LetsGoBlackhawks2014 1 points ago in ADSB

    Any resources for a complete newbie to figure out how to use a raspberry pi for receiving ADSB signals?

    [–] Biggest pet peeve LetsGoBlackhawks2014 2 points ago in chicago

    The only people I've seen actually get pissy about this are people that haven't lived here their whole life.

    [–] Jerkoffs leave trash all over Chicago beaches this past weekend LetsGoBlackhawks2014 0 points ago in chicago

    That must have required him to have a profound understanding that a lot of people are pieces of shit which, believe me, I have also. But the other side of the argument is people should just not be shit heads and you shouldn't have to make it easy for them not to be. It's not hard to have some respect for yourself and the people around you.

    Someone else commented here saying that garbage cans were overflowing. Clearly it's not adequate.

    Even if that is the case, this is an idiotic statement:

    but you can't force people to do anything. You have to make it easy to not litter.

    I wish this was enforced better in general everywhere. It makes a solid difference not to just see crap thrown all over a neighborhood to make it look nicer. And to catch all those lazy fuckasses that can't seem to not flick their cig butts everywhere.

    [–] Picture my gf took of a bobcat in Yosemite LetsGoBlackhawks2014 1 points ago in hiking

    Have they tried at some point in history? Sure. Is it something to be remotely scared of when hiking? No.

    [–] Picture my gf took of a bobcat in Yosemite LetsGoBlackhawks2014 8 points ago in hiking

    You sure he wasn't talking about a mountain lion? Even mountain lions who are at least large enough to attack a human pretty much never do. A bobcat is barely bigger than a house cat.

    [–] Picture my gf took of a bobcat in Yosemite LetsGoBlackhawks2014 1 points ago in hiking

    They are afraid of people and it is pretty rare to even see them. So no they do not attack and especially unprovoked. These things are only slightly bigger than a house cat. Their food mostly consists of small rodents (obviously not close to the size of a human). It would be evolutionary dumb for it to attack a human.

    [–] Mexico’s Supreme Court Rules That Abortion Care for Rape Survivors is a Human Right LetsGoBlackhawks2014 22 points ago in worldnews

    Not much of a stretch at all to view rape and as a form of torture. And I do not believe most would object to calling torture victims "survivors".

    [–] Form Check: Squat 315 x 5 LetsGoBlackhawks2014 0 points ago in Stronglifts5x5

    How far past parallel would you consider going to full depth?

    As stated it is hard to tell from the angle but from what I see you aren't making it to parallel. A common misconception is that parallel refers to the top of your leg being parallel to the floor. The queue for parallel really should be the imaginary line your hip joint and knee make. If that line is parallel to the floor you have hit parallel. You want to go slightly lower than that (hip joint slightly lower than knees).

    Stronglifts squat depth explanation kind of amusing that he explains it as "Thighs parallel to the floor isn’t low enough" but then the image shown seems to indicate that is all you need.

    If you want a good reference for squat form (or any of the main lift forms) I suggest getting a copy of Starting Strength.

    [–] Form Check: Squat 315 x 5 LetsGoBlackhawks2014 2 points ago in Stronglifts5x5

    From this angle it is hard to tell but I wouldn't call that going full depth (i.e. missed reps). Your knees are caving in, consciously push them out on the way up. Your stance might be a bit wide. Neck position as stated by others.

    Sincerely hope people who do this get hit ... but only get bad sprain but enough to make them not do it again.

    [–] i like to leave little cairns in remote areas that i hike. They're like non-destructive graffiti. Bankhead National Forest, Alabama. LetsGoBlackhawks2014 2 points ago in hiking

    I wouldn't consider myself a 'LNT shitstormer' but instead suffering from a different opinion. I personally do not prefer to see these unless they are there for a purpose (showing me a direction of the trail and placed by DNR/Rangers). I go hiking to disconnect from the world and have a sense of adventure. These just show me the presence of other people on the trail and diminish the sense of solitude.
