Weekend Link Love

weekend link loveExtreme aerial sports like base jumping and sky diving are typically associated with adrenaline spikes and fist pumping glory, but Free the Animal dug up a video on the beautiful, serene world of hang gliding.

Take Fit has a good list of lift-heavy health websites, and MDA is included!

Make of this what you will: United Air to Charge Obese Fliers Twice. (thanks, Autumn!)

If you liked Pay Now Live Later‘s video from last weekend’s link love, he’s got a site chronicling his Primal workout experience. Give it a look-see for inspiration and ideas.

If you’re stuck at a computer 8 hours every day, Better’s Better has a few handy exercises for the neck and wrists.

Super-thin supermodels wolfing down super-thick burgers? Carl’s Jr. just gets ridiculous. (thanks, Marci!)

And finally, for those who’ve ever been frustrated by the quagmire of scares, misinformation, and sensationalism spewed from “studies,” “reports,” and “findings,” this will make you smile.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I really enjoyed the last link. Showed it to my wife, the hypochondriac. Very funny.

  2. on the story of United Air, there’s a link to the Obesity Action Coalition… http://www.obesityaction.org.
    Their position statements are a fun read.
