The Fear of Dying Alone

Mind expanding article from Blackdragon.

His view is that the fear of dying alone causes millions of people to get into and stay in terrible marriages.

I always thought this was a stupid idea anyway. I don't really care who is with me at the end of my life. In fact, the thought of living with my abusive wife (now ex-wife) while I was an old man terrified me much more than the thought of dying alone.

A bad marriage makes you want to die young anyway.

5 Ways to 5 by 5

Starting Strength article discussing various ways to make use of the 5 sets of 5 reps weight training philosophy.

5 reps is the optimum number to increase strength. Fewer reps with higher weights increases the strain on your joints and ligaments. Higher reps increases the potential for injury as fatigue sets in.

I like the 5 ascending sets. Start light, progress upward to ONE heaviest work set. I am 52 and have the accumulated injuries that go with that age. ONE work set is plenty to avoid injury.
