The New Normal

Postby KingOfPancrase » Fri May 08, 2020 12:34 am

I don't think MMA nor anything is going back to normal after this madness comes to an end...especially if COVID-19 comes back in force in the fall. Not that it's extremely deadly or anything but it impacts society. COVID-19 you've changed things. For example. More self reliance, anti gun people suddenly being pro gun, cooking your own meals at least half the time. Home work outs. Reinforcement of traditional sex roles :twisted:

Point is. In many ways this pandemic has made us realize much of what we thought was important or VITAL to daily life really isn't .

Spoiler:
I WANT MMA to come back. But I don't NEED MMA to come back. Major distinction.

I really hope we keep social distancing. There's absolutely no reason for anyone in the general public to be closer than 6' from me. And contactless order pickup/delivery/etc. :angel:

It’s weird. Just a few months ago people wanted desperately to go viral. Now I hope those people are dead.

I'm starting to get back into it, yes. From 2011 through 2013 I cooked almost everything from scratch but then gave up. Realized within the past year that a lot of restaurants just suck and only I can make things to my taste. Started with some Home Chef kits for now and will eventually start making everything I used to. :dine:

That's good man. I had been slacking a long while too. Can't go wrong with bacon and eggs for breakfast. That stuff will make you a god damned sexual tyrannosaurus... just like me.

:lol: :lol: That's good you are stepping up your game. My wife could have her own restaurant, she cooks so good. Since the boy and I have been home she has been making so many great things, freezing things we can just heat up, and finding new things to make all the time. So keep on learning new things, but find a great woman who loves sex and is a great cook. It makes life so much fucking fun. :mrgreen:

I hope stacked fight cards like tonights become the new normal. Also the (slight) decline in bullshit celebrity gossip since lockdown has started.

Very good point. Guess that's one benefit of them having private islands to hide out. Even better if we don't let them return. :idea:

Feel the same way. I have a general fuck away from me disposition and this is only reinforcing it. Pickup orders are the shit, I know I want this thing and then you give it to me. I dont have to wade through your bullshit store and fight impulses. Plus less people. Fucking love it.

And Phil just keeps on keeping on! You sound like a truly happy man, big ups to you and the fam!


I feel fucking great. Working out everyday, no fast food, no bread. Everything I eat is something I cooked. That's the new normal for me and I'm loving how I feel. Weighed in this morning, 210. Shredding season is over, bulking season is here bros!

I havn't fired up a dart, really proud of that.

I've cut waaaaay back on the weed, no bowls before I'm finished everything on my to do list. when I do smoke bowls I cut myself off at the hat trick but might come back to it for one an hour before bed.

I drink waaaaaay to much lately though. Have my diet and exercise on point but really need to fix the drinking. Like teenage spring break levels. Go to the store every other day and I've learned the size of the bottle on my counter dictates how much i will dump into me in a night. Mickey? Haha Two six? I'll be back tomorrow for sure. Forty? Well I'll be back tomorrow bc there's not enough in here for tomorrow. Sixer? Don't want it. Waking up with no hangovers and having a sixer within sight seems like a challenge :lol:

Also a wierd time to be single. Threw the duchess out before christmas. Its fucking wierd to be alone this much. Restricting everything I do except booze for some reason so porn also got kicked to the curb when this started. Pretty sure when I do tug it again I'm going to shoot a hole through a wall.

Need to find a new girl shortly, was loving being single for the peace but fuck me I am really missing having a companion/dick sucker right now.

Can't wait for the fights tonight fellas, I might make a rare chat appearance.

Don't post too much these days but I really appreciate all you linker bros! I lurk and laugh mostly butt cumming here always brightens my day, you guys are just fucking great!

I’ve got a tall freezer in the kitchen, a normal sized one, and a chest freezer in the garage - all absolutely stacked with food. I like to do a lot of batch cooking, and buy meat in bulk. I knew I could get by for probably 3 months without visiting the shops, when this shit all started.

Still found a few new recipes.

If only my wife wanted to have sex with me, it would be pretty much sound.
