Strong And Muscular Animals



Silverback Gorilla

The strength of a silverback gorilla has never been measured, but it should be sufficient to say that anecdotal evidence of animals observed almost casually bending and snapping objects such as tempered steel bars (2 inches thick) and giant bamboo stalks, suggest that the gorilla has the muscle power of between 8-15 men and possibly more. Jersey Zoos Jambo was observed to hang from one arm (he was over 400 lbs) while methodically ripping over 200 ft of inner ceiling planks from the roof of the new gorilla house with his other arm (the planks were securely screwed and nailed), simply because he didn't like them. No other animal outside of the great apes has such a combination of strength and dexterity. The fact that gorillas don't use their strength to attack other animals in the manner of chimpanzees or baboons means very little as they are by their very nature, peaceful animals. Gorillas also have one of the most powerful jaws of any animal, which they use to get to the piths of various trees and plants. They can also use them in defense, and can inflict serious wounds with their bites if they so wish. Stories of their ferocity are largely unfounded, and when left alone, gorillas will never attack humans.


BEAR


10 Facts About Bears

1. The largest mammalian carnivore that ever lived on land was the giant short-faced bear. Twice the size of the biggest modern bear, it was 6' 5" tall at the shoulder when standing on all fours. Scientists believe it had very long legs and chased antelope on the North American prairies. It died around 12,000 years ago.

2. The sloth bear has the shaggiest fur. The sun bear has the shortest fur so it can keep cool in the hot forests of Southeast Asia.

3. The most accurate way to determine the age of a bear is to count the rings in a cross section of its tooth root under a microscope.

4. The shape of a bear’s claw differs according to the type of bear. Bears that climb, such as black bears, have claws that are curved and strong to allow them to claw at tree bark. Bears that dig, such as grizzly bears, have straight and long claws.

5. Koala bears are not bears at all and are not related to the bear family. They are marsupials.





6. Unlike many mammals, bears can see in color.

7. Lumber companies felt they had no choice but to kill the black bears in Washington State that were eating the bark from trees. However, once someone thought to put piles of food in the forest, the bears stopped eating the trees, and were happy to eat the free food. Because feeding the bears cost less than killing them, the lumber companies were happy, too.

8. Bears can see almost as well as humans, and they can hear a little better. But they can smell much better. In fact, a bear’s sense of smell is around 100 times greater than a human’s. Polar bears can track down an odor from 20 miles (32 km) away. They can smell a dead seal under 3 feet of solid ice.

9. The symbol of the United Russia Party is a bear. In fact, bears have traditionally not only been a symbol of pride and power in Russia, but have also been common images in fairy tales and myth.

10. The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is the largest bear species. A male polar bear can measure up to 10 feet long and weigh 1,500 lbs., which is about the weight of eight human adults. Female polar bears are up to 50% smaller than the males.

The eagle is the strongest bird, able to lift something four times its own body weight during flight. 

Interesting Facts About Eagles

Eagles have unusual eyes. They are very large in proportion to their heads and have extremely large pupils. Eagles’ eyes have a million light-sensitive cells per square mm of retina, five times more that a human’s 200,000. While humans see just three basic colours, eagles see five. These adaptations gives eagles extremely keen eyesight and enable them to spot even well-camouflaged potential prey from a very long distance. In fact the eagles’ vision is among the sharpest of any animal and studies suggest that some eagles can spot an animal the size of a rabbit up to two miles away!

The Harpy Eagle and the Philippine Eagle have wings that spread 2.5m across and use their massive, sharp talons, to kill and carry off prey as large as deer and monkeys.

In Greece, Golden Eagles eat turtles, dropping them from great heights onto rocks to break open their armoured shells.

TIGER


The tiger is the largest member of the felid (cat) family. They sport long, thick reddish coats with white bellies and white and black tails. Their heads, bodies, tails and limbs have narrow black, brown or gray stripes. There were once nine subspecies of tigers: Bengal, Siberian, Indochinese, South Chinese, Sumatran, Malayan, Caspian, Javan and Bali. Of these, the last three are extinct, one is extinct in the wild, and the rest are endangered.

Diet

Tigers mainly eat ambar deer, wild pigs, water buffalo and antelope. Tigers are also known to hunt sloth bears, dogs, leopards, crocodiles and pythons as well as monkeys and hares. Old and injured tigers have been known to attack humans and domestic cattle.

Population

In the early 1900s, there were around 100,000 tigers throughout their range. Today, an estimated total of around 3,000-4,500 exist in the wild. Below is a breakdown of tiger numbers by subspecies.

ELEPHANT



Interesting Facts About Elephants

1. The elephant’s closest living relative is the rock hyrax, a small furry mammal that lives in rocky landscapes across sub-Saharan Africa and along the coast of the Arabian peninsula.

2. Elephants don’t like peanuts. They don’t eat them in the wild, and zoos don’t feed them to their captive elephants.

3. Despite their size, elephants can be turned off by the smallest of critters. One study found that they avoid eating a type of acacia tree that is home to ants. Underfoot, ants can be crushed, but an elephant wants to avoid getting the ants inside its trunk, which is full of sensitive nerve endings.

DINOSAURS


More dinosaurs wallpapers in HD at:


The Heaviest Dinosaur

The heaviest dinosaur was Brachiosaurus at 80 tonnes. It was the equivalent to 17 African Elephants. Brachiosaurus was 16m tall and 26m long and is the largest dinosaur skeleton to be mounted in a museum.



The Most Brainy Dinosaur


One of the most intelligent dinosaurs was Troodon. It was a hunting dinosaur, about 2 metres long, and had a brain size similar to that of a mammal or bird of today, stereoscopic vision, and grasping hands.


Troodon
The Dumbest Dinosaur


Stegosaurus had a brain the size of a walnut - only 3 centimetres long and weighing 75 grams. However comparing brain size to body size sauropodomorphs, like Plateosaurus, were probably one of the dumbest dinosaurs.

Stegausaurus



The Fastest Running Dinosaur

The speediest dinosaurs were the ostrich mimic ornithomimids, such as Dromiceiomimus, which could probably run at speeds of up to 60 kilometres per hour.

MUSK OX



Why the Name Musk Oxen ?

You might be wondering why the word musk is attached to these oxen. Well, if you stand very near to these animals (which is not easy), the smell of musk will fill your nose. this musk odor emanates from the thick fur that envelops their body. Hence, these large animals are popularly called the musk oxen.

Male or Female Oxen: Which is Longer
Lengthwise, male musk oxen have an edge over female musk oxen. This is because the maximum possible length of females is around 200 cm, whereas most male musk oxen are around 220-250 cm long.

Where do Musk Oxen Live?

They are found in northern Canada, Greenland and the Arctic areas. Musk oxen also live in Alaska on the Tundra and Ellesmere Islands. They change their habitat throughout the year. In the summer season, you will find them around river valleys. In winter, they prefer to go to places where snow is comparatively less.

What is the use of Fur?

They are huge beasts covered with thick layers of fur. The fur coat protects them from the cold winds of the Arctic region. As the fur is cold-resistant, musk oxen can easily survive even in extreme cold conditions. They are well-adapted to survive in harsh climatic conditions. Their fur consists of thick, long hair that almost touches the ground. This outer, dense coat protects the inner layer from the freezing cold. The fur generally has a dark brown color.

What is their Life Span?

These mammals have a short life span. They do not live more than 20-25 years in the wild. Musk oxen often fight with each other to display their dominance. Some of these bulls die early due to injury during fights.

Working In An Office - The Good, The Bad & Ugly


The Bad & Ugly

Today about 70% or so of the work is done in front of a computer and in some kind of office space. Computers became affordable by the middle class. So, how come the movie Office Space is still relevant? Can't we just do our work at home, save time and be happier? It's simple - boss control


“How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 8:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so? ”


― Charles Bukowski, Factotum

Mmmmmm......key
Remember the boss from Office Space ?

Everybody has a boss, right ? You have a boss, the boss has a boss and the boss' boss has another boss who is usually working for another boss taking orders from his own boss. There is one thing that all bosses share - they want control over their employees. The easiest and cheapest way to achieve that is to make them people like slaves in office environment. 
Big Brother Is Watching, You Mad Son ?
Big Brother Is Watching You

Remember The Office Space Story ?
Everyday I lose 2 hours on the bus while traveling from my home to the office. I work a low paid office job which can be definitely done from home or even McDonalds (if you own a laptop). The boss however wants us there so that he can watch on us. While this will never change despite the fact that there are successful companies without many offices (Wizz Air) I don't believe working at home exclusively is the answer. 

Did you know that there are no paper tickets labeled "Wizz Air ?"

The Good

People tend to be social animals. We need to meet other animals. We are not ravens or tigers. We live like lions - in social groups. If you work at home where are you going to meet people ? The gym? The bus? The Mall? While all of the mentioned places certainly offer opportunities to bump into other representative of the mankind you cannot build a strong connection with another person unless you have the chance to face various difficult situations together. For this reason people tend to remember their class mates and co-workers forever but quite often forget the cute boy they once met at a cinema. 

Another important benefit is the increased focus. At home it's really hard to achieve great concentration. There are too many distractions such as - TV, food, kids, neighbours. The office still has its fair share of distractions (yes, I am thinking what you are thinking) but in the end of the day you are there to work. 

Blondes Are...
Yes, I am thinking what you are thinking.

While working in an office has it's negative sides I am against the idea that everything should be done from home even if it's possible. It would be damaging to mankind as a social animal. The best approach would probably be somewhere in the middle - working in an office but also being able to freelance from home.

The Muscle Industry In One Photo


The muscle industry has always followed a pretty easy to understand scheme. Muscle men are usually not the smartest guys afterall. The main source of income are the naive teenagers and young adults who believe that a body like Jeff Seid's is just around the corner. People buy useless supplements, follow moronic routines and usually get nowhere near their initial goal. 

At the same time the real secret to bodybuilding success, whatever that is, are anabolic steroids. In order to afford them many professionals are willing to do whatever it takes - sometimes even prostitute and G4P (gay for pay). Many IFBB pros end up dead or with severe health problems. Smart guys like Joe Weider on the other hand just get richer and richer. It can all be summarized in one photo:


Somethings will never change but at least now you know.

The Typical Idiots You Meet On Bodybuilding.com


Number 1: The Liar

The liar is a regular visitor of bodybuilding.com. This guy is usually a former skinny kid who found steroids but prefers to claim that his muscles were built through hard work and dedication. This individual will deny his steroid addiction even on his death bed.  



“I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you.”  

-Friedrich Nietzsche






Number 2: The Noobs

Noobs form around 50% of the population on bodybuilding.com. They come in all kinds of shapes - skinny, fat and skinny fat.

The Skinny Noob



The Fat Noob



The Skinny Fat Noob


Skinny fat is something between skinny and fat !


Those individuals are usually still ignorant and stupid enough to believe that physiques like the ones displayed by the liars are possible naturally a.k.a without the usage of steroids. The noobs suffer quite a lot of pain because of their little to no experience in this shit game called - bodybuilding.

Number 3: The Delusional Lifters

In this category usually fall guys who have worked pretty hard and achieved some sort of development but still believe the lies of the liars. Many of those dudes become permabulker a.k.a fat guys confusing fat and muscle. These guys is usually afraid to skip a single day in the gym. The delusional lifters are losing precious time believing in a pipe dream meant to satisfy their egos without giving the needed sense of mastery.


Number 4: The Professional Bodybuilder 

Occasionally there are professional bodybuilders who register on bodybuilding.com to promote their bullshit supplements! Those guys simply lie to the face of the ignorant noobs who believe supplements offer something valuable.


Number 5: The Business Man - 5%   

The business man is a guy who promotes his business on bodyduilding.com. This person is usually a nerd similar to Lyle McDonald and likes to be part of Internet battles where he measures his dick with other online marketers and wannabes.


Number 6: The Bitch Who Wants You To Stare At Her B*



I will let you figure this one by yourself. 

Keywords: attention, emotional, damage, voids

When You Just Don't Give A Fuck Anymore


This week I got asked on the forum whether I stopped lifting once I learnt the truth about bodybuilding. The answer is: "No. I didn't stop lifting." However I stopped giving a fuck a long time ago. I know it sounds crazy but eventually you have to do it too. Yes, not giving a fuck works wonders.

Initially everybody is a maniac when it comes to training. Everybody. You are looking at people in the magazines with awesome bodies and you are thinking to yourself:  "One day when I get to be this big my life will be great ". The truth however is that your life will not be great. It could be better but it could also be worse. In all case you will not feel the way you think you will.

As the years pass by you will learn a lot about the cult of bodybuilding, fitness, weightlifting - whatever you want to call it. You will learn its good sides and its bad sides. But sooner or later you will get tired and mad for not seeing the results your are supposed to see. This is the moment where you will start to question everything and will probably do some stupid stuff like following some ridiculous diet which makes you measure your food, sleep 10 hours and squat 5 times a week. Stupid. We all have to learn somehow even though sometimes it's hard to remove the ego glasses and stop listening to fairy tales.

After you fail many times even though you did everything by the book you will realize one thing - you wasted a huge amount of time working in the wrong direction. At some point we stop being playing with old toys. It's just not fun anymore. Most people may describe this as a moment when you lose motivation but in the world of fitness it's a good thing because being a maniac who measures his arm in order to impress girls is just a cover up for something else. It does not matter how good you cover a shit - eventually we are all informed about its presence.

Not giving a fuck about lifting feels likes escaping slavery. Because lifting weights is slavery. You may not realize it right now because you are in between your creatine and protein shakes while watching a video of the hodge twins but you will eventually. At least I hope so. My goal was never to demotivate anyone. Actually my goal is simply to present you the truth so that you can learn from my mistakes, save some time and move on with your life despite the fact that you don't have a six pack or big arms.

Of course you can always start using steroids and get to look like a fitness model or even a bodybuilder. Yes, you can do that. I cannot stop you nor do I want to. I am here just to say to you that you should not become a slave to drugs. In this life we are always a slave to something (food, water, money, love) so it makes sense to at least try to limit our masters. It's pretty hard to serve one master and pleasing 5 masters is even harder.

I know for some of you it's pretty hard to skip a day in the gym or even eat a cookie. To me that is simply self destructive and in the end of the day you are going to explode whether you want it or not. Try this - don't eat for a few days. You will notice that you will get pretty hungry. At least I do. On the day you eat after your starvation you behave like a pig. Why? Because nature likes balance and when you shift something to one end eventually it builds momentum and goes to the other side. Therefor it makes sense to keep everything in the middle.

When you are on a death bed and somebody asks you to tell a cool story or some accomplishment of yours you are probably not going to say: "Well, I measured my food and injected a bunch of hormones in my ass for years in order to get big and cover my insecurities." This does not make for a good story. What does make for a good story however is this: "I wanted to be a doctor and I became one." or " I wanted to become an actor and I became one." I guess something like "I wanted to be a bodybuilder" and I became one is also pretty cool but given the fact that being a bodybuilder is sort of like getting a silicone surgery the story is not as good as being a doctor. I am open for debate on this one and don't get mad at me please.

Bodybuilding Chemical Warfare


More Truth from Bostin Loyd



Bostin Loyd is one of the few bodybuilders out there who share the truth.....the ugly truth about the sport called bodybuilding. In this video he talks about drugs, supplements, G4P (gay 4 pay) and more. 

Obviously I don't recommend that you follow his route and start taking tons of drugs. Trust me it's not worth it - you will end up spending tons of money on steroids, surgeries, doctor check-ups and other expenses will arise from everywhere. 

Why? To feel like a GOD? To feed your ego?

It only ends one way. Bodybuilding is a sad sport full of denial.

Just go for a run and love yourself the way nature intended you to be

Life Of a Lifter - Important Periods


Step 1. THE IGNORANT NOOB (Beginning of weightlifting career )



Everybody starts lifting for one reason only - to have big muscles and impress girls/boys. That's it. You can talk about how you do it for health and strength, you can talk about how you love it but in the end of the day the reason is always the need to feed your ego and impress others. The added benefits like improved health and strength are just extra bonuses. There is a reason why most people start with bodybuilding and maybe later switch to powerlifting. 

Very few people start out as powerlifters. 

When you are an ignorant noob you do the following: endless research on the Internet on perfect training routines and nutrition regimens. The ignorant noob will spend a huge amount of time researching how it's all done. Usually most ignorant noobs start with the most famous routine on the Internet - in many cases that is 5x5, Starting Strength or Ronnie Coleman's split routine.

This individual usually registers on T-Nation.com, Scooby's forum (too bad it's closed now) and bodybuilding.com. He/She starts asking questions such as: Will I get too big if I lift heavy ?, When will I have chest like Scooby ?, When will my abs appear ?....etc.

After training for 6 months to a year the noob graduates to....

Step: 2 The Noob Who Knows It All

After spending a shitload of time reading on the Internet the noob becomes the Noob Who Knows It All because he/she has read so much about lifting that it feels like there is nothing new to know. Usually this person actually repeats universally accepted information which may or may not be complete bullshit posted by some random guy on the Internet. 


This guy usually believes in things like: squats make you real big, you can have 18 inches arms naturally at 8% BF, Jeff Seid is natural, Ronnie Coleman was natural when he became a professional....etc.

Step 3: The Desperate Noob Who Can't Get "BIG" and "SHREDDED" no matter what

This is a person who saw almost none or simply bad results with the program he/she followed. This person is now investigating alternative training such as Serge Nubret's training methods, Russian secrets, eating animal testicles and more. This guy may be a desperate noob but he takes his training stuff serious and cannot allow himself to miss a day in the gym cause getting big is just around the corner.



Step 4: The Almost Wise Noob

This noob is beginning to know the difference between lies and reality in the world of iron. He is starting to doubt what most big guys say and is researching steroids. He feels likes shit that even his grandmother is on steroids.



Step 5: The Wise Noob (Moment of Truth)

This noob already knows the truth about liars such as Jeff Seid and Matt Ogus and is starting to give less and less fucks about training secrets and bullshit. 

This noob may start using low doses of steroids just to see how his body reacts. Soon he learns that 300 mg of test do not make you look like Ronnie Coleman. This person may or may not become a serious steroid user. 

Note: This person may not reach Step 6.



Step 6: The Not Giving A Fuck Lifter

This person knows that 90% of the information on lifting is broscience. He/She now finally lifts for HEALTH.
