you don't seem to grasp that picking crap up and putting it down is the same thing all around

This is nothing more than additional evidence that you have no knowledge of the subject. If they are the same thing, then why is it that, in the Olympics, a lifter using the power style would be disqualified? Furthermore, a lifter in a powerlifting competition would be disqualified for performing an oly squat. According to you, they are one and the same.

I don't really care.

Apparently you do, as you are still here arguing.

You still screwed up.

We've already come to the conclusion that a specific format is not a requirement; it is merely an option with a preference. Therefore, the usage was acceptable.

If you keep thinking you must be right, then you will certainly be wrong. And if you ever attain any sort of power over others and continue with that philosophy then you will certain trample those who see otherwise. You're an intellectual bully, but nothing more.

Cont. entire muscle groups by picking up weight with a different orientation of your feet. By having parallel feet or a 90 degree angle you aren't going around your back and picking things up with your teeth. You have to be a complete imbecile to think those exercises are different. That's why one is called an OLY SQUAT, and the other is called a POWERLIFTING SQUAT. The modifier in front tells you that it's just a modification of the same damn thing--not something different. Even the language indicates this, but you won't indicate that I am right. I merely have to show you by force every time in every one of these posts as if I even cared. This is very amusing for me because you're blinded by your hubris, and I'm shielded by a deep apathy for those who express it.

"I agree, but it wouldn't have had the same effect for the reader. Most readers pause or hesitate when they come to an ellipsis; they do not do the same for a 'but' or other conjuctions (sic)."

I don't really care. You still screwed up. You used the ellipsis as a pause and not to continue a completely unrelated thought. To use it in the context you are suggesting is often when quoting a politician/some figure. Not when writing a simple sentence. The fact that I could substitute your ellipsis for a but means that it wasn't necessary to capitalize unnecessarily. You didn't break any hard and fast rules, but you didn't adhere to what would be proper. Stop wasting your time with trying to be right all the time. It isn't a game.

"Actually, this isn't nit-picky at all. By pointing you feet forward, you end up sitting into the squat. When this happens, you use your posterior chain.

On the other hand, by pointing your feet out, you end up sinking into the squat (rather than sitting). When you do this properly, the completely opposite side of your leg (quads) ends up doing most of the lifting.

They are, by all accounts, two entirely different exercises depending on the orientation of your feet; afterall, they train completely different muscles. This is hardly nit-picking."

It's not entirely different to point your feet different directions and pick up the same weight. In fact, they are distinctly the same exercise merely expressed slightly differently. That's not wholly different. You're wrong. Just completely wrong. I am glad you are not a physical trainer because you don't seem to grasp that picking crap up and putting it down is the same thing all around; you're not bypassin

Usually yes, but those thoughts are fairly related--it wasn't necessary.

... but still optional, none-the-less (see what I did there?).

You could have easily threw in the conjunction but and that would have still made sense

I am just being nit-picky about nothing important just like you were about the angle of one's feet during a squat.

"
The questions that you have asked me outright have all been answered, so I am rather interested in understanding how you've come to this conclusion. "

I said 80-90% of what I say. I wasn't talking about my inquiries. I was talking about my statements that I've made about what you say or think or do and why I might think it's wrong or just misguided. You haven't addressed any of that. You still won't, and that's fine. You have an ego to protect. I don't. I killed that thing long ago.

"Can you cite this? It has been my understanding that it is optional, with a preference for lowercase if the ellipsis interrupts a single thought and a preference for capitalized if the ellipsis finishes a thought."

Usually yes, but those thoughts are fairly related--it wasn't necessary. You could have easily threw in the conjunction but and that would have still made sense. An m dash would have sufficed just as well. I am just being nit-picky about nothing important just like you were about the angle of one's feet during a squat.

It's ultimately futile because we clearly understand what one another means. I am just exercising my ability to show that you're fallible to. But don't take anything I say as something injurious. I don't want to say things to hurt people. I want to say things so I can help others and perhaps myself in the process.

I thought you might want to know that little punctuation rule so you can expedite your messages.

But you still never address about 80-90% of what I say. You just take a little snippit and plug in a quip. It's clever for appearing intelligent, but it falls apart in the face of careful analysis.

The questions that you have asked me outright have all been answered, so I am rather interested in understanding how you've come to this conclusion.

When using an ellipsis you do not need to capitalize the letter afterword or use a space. The punctuation rules for periods do not apply.

That is a point ^. I am being an non-nice individual, but you're going to ignore it because I'm right.

I didn't cheat and look it up, but a cursory glance on the internet would have given me all that information and more and I could have regurgitated it for you.

This is a pointless pissing contest. If I wanted to win then I'd simply cheat. Nothing either one of us is going to ask the other is going to be very hard to find when it comes to 'weight-lifting'.

Sprinkz, this is like reading a coke addicts diary....please post more.

I am trying to keep him interested as this is most amusing for me as well. I must concede, at the very least, that he appears to type much faster than I!

I'm going to assume Oly squats though are just slower version of the squat to target every muscle group through the lift

Uh, no. Powerlifting squats try to take advantage of the inherent power in the posterior chain (hamstrings, glutes, lower-back). This is because the goal is to move the heaviest possible weight. To do so, the lifter stands with their feet pointing almost perfectly straight ahead, and 'sits back' into the squat. The lower-leg stays almost vertical and the hinge occurs at the hip. The descent will stop when the thighs are parallel, or almost parallel to the floor.

Oly squatters point their feet out at ~45 degrees. This enables them to squat much lower "into the hole" of the hips. The hinge is the knee and thus the torso stays more upright. The quads are the primary mover rather than the posterior chain.

"You keep saying that, but alas, it still does not become true. "

Same can be said until one of us erects a goalpost.

About pedantic:

Websterian definition: overly concerned with minute details or formalisms, especially in teaching.

You are that definition. You're asking me about formal terms for SQUATS. Which is just PICKING CRAP UP AND PUTTING IT DOWN.

That's pedantic if nothing else is! You just bulldoze around any point I've made. You're a felon when it comes to intellectual crimes in this topic.

No, I am referencing Zeus, Apollo, or perhaps if you're raunchy enough Priapus [I had to look that up again].

Interesting... Is the God you are referencing Buddha by chance?

Which is fine, but I exposed you.

You keep saying that, but alas, it still does not become true.

You're just being pedantic and not demonstrating anything but that.

You keep using the word 'pedantic' yet seem to be unaware of its meaning.

I could just lie and look anything up you ask me to and put it into my own words.

I encourage you to do so; I would be happy to expose you.

Coke-addiction is really interesting. I've never done it, but I've been on meth since I was 7 years old prescribed by 'doctors'. Cocaine is fairly dirty. The stuff I was fed was of a much higher caliber and caused inhuman focus. People were moving in slow-motion for 7 years of my life.

I don't fail to see anything. Perhaps you've failed to explain it properly. It takes two to even have an argument in the first place. I still haven't demonstrated 'stupidity' in even the broadest of terms.

I'm going to assume Oly squats though are just slower version of the squat to target every muscle group through the lift and powerlifting just tries to get the weight up off of the ground through explosive force and technique. If I'm wrong I'm not super concerned.

I don't have any relevant questions to ask about weight-lifting. Weight-lifting is fairly stupid and easy to do. That's why morons who shoot roids and eat mcdonalds can do it.

Let's discuss the chemistry of working out and the actual mechanisms that molecularly decides whether muscles grow, or atrophy. Can you explain those pathways, or is that too advanced for a meathead? I think it is.

Here is your run-on sentence:

Use language properly or stop using it all together because you're a testament to stupidity when someone with a powerful command of the language reads it and sees that you either do know what you mean and meant it and it looks stupid, or you're grossly negligent and belie your intentions with bad diction.


This block becomes a run-on at the word 'when' or 'or', depending on the meaning of your clauses.

If you mean that a person is a testament to stupidity only when someone with a powerful command of language reads it, then the block becomes a run-on at the word 'or' - since this is an entirely new clause unrelated to the rest of the block.

Otherwise (and far more likely), then use of 'when' as a conjuction was improper because it modifies the sentence into a specific situation as described above.
