A new PR on the squat tonight! From what I've read (e.g. here1 and here2), part of the reason the squat is "the king of exercises," is because it uniquely stimulates the body as a whole to grow muscle. So I decided to try 100kg as a kind of "cooldown" set. Originally I was only going to do 2, but then 4 felt felt. I think I could have done 6 with a spotter, maybe even without. But all things in due time. Really worked the biceps hard tonight.

Hey i tried to contact Scott Williams per Lee Faber's suggestion to find out if he knew what Journal the Richard Cross article would be published in, but no luck. Where you able to find out?

I have not found any leads. I will wait for it to find me by some means. Keep me posted if you catch a lead. Don't know if you saw my response to Perry at W4 in that recent-ish thread of Feser's about classical theism.

Yeah dude i saw that, no point in arguing with Perry. He always has an answer that usually bothers on sophistry, if you ask me.
Definitely if i find out i will let you know.
