Scan, baby, scan!
The C-Pen 3.0 pen scanner allows you to scan text from
almost any foreign language. This scanning pen is fast, efficient, and easy to
use. And we have it on sale now for a limited time only.
No complicated setup, works via USB. Everything is included so you can scan
directly into any PC application quickly and efficiently, from a huge range of
languages and character sets. The C-Pen 20 is fast, efficient, and easy to use.
This "glory" shot has the USB cable air-brushed out,
but it looks cool so we're using it.
3. Brainpower tip
One reason so many people have brainpower that's far less then their potential
is they expose their minds to sources of disinformation and non-information.
Examples include most television shows, radio shows, consumer magazines, and
"conversations" that lack substance (think of the male bovine and a common
Simply eliminating these mental toxins can boost a person's
effective IQ by 50 points or more.
But why stop there? Feed your mind with sources of good information, such as:
- Substantive magazines, such as Discover, Science News, National
- Nonfiction books. Learn, baby, learn! Sitting down and reading a book is
a brainbuilder in itself, choosing good books greatly enhances the effect.
- Nonfiction audiobook titles. I personally enjoy the University Lecture
- Documentary videos. These are free at your local public library.
- Conversations with people who are critical thinkers. Make sure the
topics are worth discussing. Generally, such things as sports, weather,
politics, and religion don't make the grade.
- Informative Websites. It's amazing what you can find online. Sure, much
of it is junk. But there are some really good Websites. Pick a topic you're
interested in and use a search engine (anything but Google, which stinks
compared to Yahoo, Bing, and Duck Duck Go) to locate authoritative,
informative, interesting sites related to it.
- Television isn't totally bad (however, I refuse to watch it). You can
find truly excellent programming on The Discovery Channel (I have watched
videos of their shows, and they are great) and similar outlets.
- Radio has some mentally healthy programming also. NPR immediately come
to mind. Sure, it has its share of left wing propaganda programs, but it
also has a slew of good educational material. And The Car Guys is hard to
beat for both education and entertainment.
You really don't need a list of what's good or bad to read, discuss, listen
to, or watch. I mention those things above just to give you some reference
points. What's important is that you make a deliberate effort to evaluate these
various sources. Then choose only the good ones, to the extent possible.
Managing your mental diet is similar in many respects to managing your
physical diet. Eliminate junk, and get a variety of nutrient-dense foods.
4. Finance tip
Sick, twisted individuals are negatively affecting the economy you live in. This
seriously harms your financial health.|
Reprobates employed by a certain terrorist organization tend to take out their
sick fantasies on people who have worked hard to succeed. Interviews of these
reprobates, and statements they've made in court, show a deep jealousy on their
part. Many of them have frankly stated that anyone making more money than they
do "deserves" the brutal abuse meted out by this terrorist organization.
Typical first-rung wages in the terrorist group's collections department are in
the mid-20s per year (at least that was the figure a few years back). No wonder
they are jealous. They are people with no real job prospects due to deep
personal defects, but they can exercise enormous power to make
others suffer. And they are accountable to no one. This situation is
inconsistent with the basic tenets of what it means to be civilized.
These people lack the skill, ability, and character to make it in business. They
simply cannot understand how that's done without cheating, because they have to
cheat just to come out as slightly below average. Thus, they conclude that
anyone who does succeed in business cheated to do so. The presumption of guilty
(even if proven innocent) is fundamental to how they see their victims.
This problem of jealous, destructive reprobates has had a deleterious
brain-drain effect on the USA for the past several decades. Wealth-generating,
job-creating Americans have been ex-patriating (in growing numbers) because they
have no other choice when made a target of this abuse.
The result is
When interviewed for a book on expatriation, every single
ex-pat interviewed said their reason for fleeing was this terrorist
organization. Don't confuse this with some sort of aversion to taxes, which this
is not at all about. When asked specifically if they meant their tax burden,
each ex-pat said no. Taxes had nothing to do with their decision to flee. Their
reason to leave their native country, and take their wealth-producing brains
with them, was the systematic abuse and terrorism
inflicted upon them by these terrorists.
This terrorist organization has received additional power since our latest dictator
took office in January of 2009. So the problem is getting worse. In 2013, the
number of new terrorist-fleeing ex-pats was a record-breaking 2,099 individuals.
Last year, that increased by an astounding 14%, setting a new record of 3,415
Americans seeking out a civilized place to live where they won't be harassed,
abused, and attacked by lawless reprobates.
There is a simple solution to this problem. Simply disband that terrorist
organization. It serves no legitimate purpose, costs the Treasury far more than
it takes in, routinely engages in illegal and immoral behavior, and (by din of
the growing brain drain) is a direct threat to national security. A thinking,
informed person could easily make a list of 100 compelling reasons to disband
these terrorists. No thinking, informed person can come up with a single reason
to continue the existence of this terrorist organization. Nor can any moral,
If we had an actual Department of Defense, it would defend the nation against
this threat. But it doesn't. It is sworn to do so. It violates its oath.
All that money spent on the military ($495.6 billion for 2015), totally
wasted. Not a penny is going for our defense.
So the system isn't working. We need an intervention from CONgress. The
retards in CONgress have many tools at their disposal, such as reducing the
terrorist organization's budget to zero. Or passing a new law named something
like the "End State-sanctioned Terrorism and Improve the Economy Act" (ESTRIA).
Another possible name is "Stop The Insanity and Depravity Act" (STIDA).
Maybe "Retire Our Terrorists (ROT) would be the best name of all. In any case, the Act
would legislatively disband the terrorists and make it a felony to regroup or
reconstitute this disgusting, morally reprehensible, destructive organization in
any way, shape, or form.
The effect on our economy would be electric. The effect on us as a people, no
longer living in fear of powerful, lawless, useless reprobates who can and do
strike at will for no good reason other than their own personal gain or personal
jealousy, would be even greater. We would be well on the way to becoming a
What can you do? Explain this problem to your misrepresentative in CONgress.
Write to your two senators. Join a citizen advocacy group that advocates ending
the Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths. Talk to others, and use blunt,
factually correct language rather than the propagandistic euphemisms for what
these terrorists are and do. That would be a good start. We need to take this
burden off our economy, and off our society generally. Let's make it happen.
5. Security tip
|You probably receive unwanted solicitations for various
kinds of financial scams via USPS. These include:|
- A credit card that looks good until you read the fine print and see
they charge you $90 a year for the "privilege" of using their card. All
you have to do is activate it.
- A pre-approved credit card application, and the card is actually
good but you don't have a particular reason to get another card.
- Wow, a business line of credit for "capital funding" up to $150,000!
What do you do with these come-ons? Pat yourself on the back if you don't
swallow the bait. But don't pat yourself on the back unless you cross-shred
As Obamageddon continues to put people out of work, they turn to criminal
endeavors so they can eat. Dumpster diving is now a popular past-time. The
criminal looks specifically for these scam items, and then uses them for
various purposes such as:
- Identity theft. The scam items have your name and address on them,
and that's bad enough. They typically have additional information that
can also be used against you.
- Cashing in. The criminal accepts the offer on your behalf. The funds
go into a temporary account, which the criminal then drains and closes.
But you are on the hook for that $150,000 "working capital" loan that is
typically made with an APR north of 40%. If you make an average wage,
you will never, ever pay this off.
- Information selling. It's not a crime to collect and sell
information about other people. Dumpster diving to collect it is fairly
risk-free. What this means for you is you become a target of maybe
dozens of scamsters.
6. Health tip/Fitness tips
Mike wrote asking me about my "broken ribs" in the photo. Those aren't ribs,
those are muscles. They're just very developed and not covered by fat.
That's why they appear in such stark relief.
For most people, back training consists of lat pulldowns and incorrectly
done bent over rows.
If you want a powerful, impressive back, you must work all of the muscle
groups. Rear delts and rhomboids are typically neglected. As you can see, I
don't neglect mine.
It's impossible in the space of a short article to describe how to properly
develop your back. But with a few key concepts highlighted, you should be
able to figure out a program for yourself.
While a weak back is normal, it's not desirable. A strong back takes work,
but it's well worth it. To develop that strong back, base your program on
- Split training. You cannot do a "full body" workout and expect great
results. You simply don't have the energy to do a workout that will
incite the adaptive response; intensity is key. Train your back on its
own day, in combination with another, smaller muscle group. Most popular
is biceps; I do back and biceps. Don't try something like chest and back
on the same day, there's not enough energy.
- Map it out from the top down. Work rear delts, specifically. Work
rhomboids, specifically (bent over row with arms in position to focus
there). Work lower/mid/upper lats, specifically. Then work it in the
opposite direction: lower lats, mid lats, upper lats, rhomboids, delts.
- Use isometric finishing exercises. This has been especially helpful
to me in lower lat development. I squeeze those puppies well past the
point of pain.
- Vary your grip when doing chin-ups and pull-ups. If you aren't doing
chin-ups and pull-ups, you aren't going to get the lat development your
back is capable of producing.
- Focus on getting the muscle burn, not on moving weight up and down.
- Be sure to incorporate ultra-slow reps at some point during your
- Vary the tempo of the lifting and lowering motion from set to set
and sometimes from rep to rep.
- Be sure to do a few step movements (e.g., take 10 seconds to lower
the weight 1/4, pause 10 seconds, take 10 seconds to lower the weight
another 1/4, pause 10 seconds, take 10 seconds to lower the weight
another 1/4; then raise the weight and start all over.
- Focus on keeping the muscle under tension. Resting at the extreme
range of movement diminishes the effectiveness of the exercise. Rest
between sets, not between reps.
You can use these same principles (except the ones related to chin-ups
and pull-ups and the mapping thing) for developing other muscle groups. You
want impressive calves or an impressive chest? Use these principles.
Any good weight workout will cause your heart to race. If you're not
breathing hard, you're not doing it right.
www.supplecity.com, you'll find plenty of informative, authoritative
articles on maintaining a lean, strong physique. It has nothing to
do with long workouts or impossible to maintain diets. In fact:|
- The best workouts are short and intense.
- A good diet contains far more flavors and satisfaction
than the typical American diet.
In ancient times, strangers shook hands to show that they were unarmed. Today,
members of CONgress shake hands while lying through their teeth.|

applies to "It's only a job" (time to get another one) and other aspects of
