1. Be kind to your black brothers. Enough with the racist crap. I get that there's a World Star Hip Hop thug culture; so do my black readers, and they hate that stuff, too. Danger & Play has a greater percentage of black readers than any other blog in this area and it's commonly assumed I'm black.

Seek Small Victories (Because Winning is a Habit)


After a day of work that stretched into night, something came up that ruined everything. All of the hard work was for nothing. I turned my office light off and walked outside into the darkness. I hadn't packed food for the day and my blood sugar was low. I grabbed a protein bar and told myself that going to the gym was pointless. Somehow I made it. I rolled into the … [Read more...]

Arnold’s Schwarzenegger’s Six Tips for Success

Total Recall

I criticized Arnold Schwarzenegger's autobiography, "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story" because it was generally a pack of lies. It was also depressing that the lion who wrote Education of a Bodybuilder became a people pleaser and rewrote his history to make himself more politically correct. That said, Arnold is Arnold. When he's not spinning facts to make … [Read more...]
