PMMA and penis enlargement

Soooo, I’m going to deviate a little from regular programming here, well a little bit anyway.

Nearly all guys would love a larger penis and it’s a subject I’ve researched extensively. Firstly, disregard all those advertisements you see flashing on your screen promising a 12 inch penis by swallowing a few pills LOL.

But, there are safe, natural and free ways to enlarge your penis. They are:

  • jelqing
  • hanging
  • pumping
  • clamping

All can be read about on the great penis enlargement website, thundersplace.org. That’s a highly recommended place.

But the problem with the above techniques is that they take HOURS of regular, dedicated commitment to see results. For example, you may need to clamp for 30 mins per day, every year, for 3 years straight, to see an extra inch in girth. Wow, that’s commitment.

There is a way to hack this whole penis enlargement thing though :)

You see, there’s a new dermal filler on the scene that is generating a lot of buzz and positive reviews. It’s called PMMA and I am proud to admit I’ve had the enhancement myself recently with tremendous results. Yes, I’ve had penis enlargement. It was a Christmas present I gave myself recently.

What is PMMA?

PMMA, or Poly(methyl methacrylate) as it’s technically known as, are microspheres found inside injectable gel (or filler) that acts as the vehicle for placement inside the body. These injectables are designed to be encapsulated by your body’s own collagen and remain as a permanent to semi permanent solution for tissue deficient simple cosmetic enhancement, whether it be chin and jaw enhancement, lip enhancement, or penis enhancement.

Although many of these may seem like a dream come true, many are not yet available in the United States. Well, at least legitimately. I traveled to Tijuana, Mexico for my treatment with Dr Casavantes at Avanti Derma.

It is sold under brands such as New Plastic, Metacrill and

What was the procedure?

What were my results?

Well, after

Charlie Munger and Mental modes – how can I be like him?

“The better decision maker has at his/her disposal repertoires of possible actions; checklists of things to think about before he acts; and he has mechanisms in his mind to evoke these, and bring these to his conscious attention when the situations for decision arise.”

- Herbert Simon, Nobel Laureate

Charlie Munger has ‘the best 30-second mind in the world. He goes from A to Z in one move. He sees the essence of everything before you even finish the sentence’

- Warren Buffett, Forbes Magazine, January 22, 1996.

Are you a genius? Nope, me either. Don’t worry..

It turns out that Charlie Munger essentially thinks by using the BIG IDEAS from disciplines as diverse as physics, economics and psychology. He has a list of these ideas (mental models) in his mind and quickly picks the ones applicable to the given situation, much as a pilot automatically goes through a checklist prior to take-off.

After some more investigation I found a list of some of the models Charlie uses:

  • Game theory
  • Newton’s laws
  • Supply and demand
  • Network effects
  • Social proof
  • Anchor effect
  • Business models
  • Porter’s five forces

The list goes on and on and many of the ‘big ideas’ are very diverse and at first glance totally unconnected. However the variety and randomness of the theories creates thought patterns and links that other people cannot see. It gives him the power to create connections in disconnected theories.
However there are other ways to build in variety to keep your brain’s neurons firing on all cylinders; try talking a different route to work, reading a book on a subject you know nothing about, going to an art fair, learning a new language. Try anything to keep you brain off balance and force it to create new neural pathways.

If anyone wants to see Charlie in action there is a great video of his 2007 USC Gould Law School Commencement Address on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6Cy7UwsRPQ

Did you hear what he said? “You’ve got to have models in your head. And you’ve got to array your experience—both vicarious and direct—on this latticework of models. You may have noticed students who just try to remember and pound back what is remembered. Well, they fail in school and in life.”

Can allicin extract really help me?

You may have heard about the health benefits of garlic in the past. If you’ve been living under a rock, garlic is possibly effective for:

  • Reducing high blood pressure. Some research shows that garlic can reduce blood pressure in people with high blood pressure by as much as 7% or 8%. It also seems to lower blood pressure in people with normal blood pressure. Most studies have used a specific garlic powder product (Kwai, from Lichtwer Pharma).
  • “Hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis). As people age, their arteries tend to lose their ability to stretch and flex with age. Garlic seems to reduce this effect.
  • Colon cancer, rectal cancer, and stomach cancer. Eating garlic seems to reduce the risk of developing these cancers. However, garlic supplements don’t seem to offer the same benefit.
  • Tick bites. Scientists have compared the number of tick bites in people who take high doses of garlic compared to people who do not take garlic. High doses of dietary garlic, over about a five-month period, seem to reduce the number of tick bites.
  • Fungal infections of the skin (including ringworm, jock itch and athlete’s foot). Ringworm and jock itch respond to treatment with a garlic gel containing 0.6% ajoene (a chemical in garlic) that is applied to the skin. A garlic gel with a higher concentration of ajoene (1%) is needed to be effective against athlete’s foot. In fact, garlic gel with 1% ajoene seems to be about as effective against athlete’s foot as the medicine Lamisil.

 

What is Allicin?

Allicin is the major biologically active compound of garlic, and it was first reported by Cavallito and Bailey in 1944. It is the key ingredient responsible for the broad-spectrum antibacterial activity in garlic. Interestingly enough, allicin is not found in fresh garlic. Fresh garlic contains allinase and alliin, which are contained in different parts of the plant. This is designed as a defense mechanism against pathogens in the soil. When the cloves are attacked by pathogens, the membranes of these compartments are destroyed and within 10 seconds, the alliin is converted into allicin. Allicin is relatively stable if it is kept cool but starts to degrade when heated. As well as garlic, allicin may also be found in onions, scallions, leeks, and shallots.

How can Allicin help me?

Allicin has a wide range of health benefits. It can help to prevent cardiovascular attacks, restore suppressed antibody responses, has a wide range of antimicrobial activities, can help to prevent the common cold, and can help prevent and treat cancer. Studies have shown that allicin can lower total cholesterol as well as bad cholesterol and triglycerides, and increase good cholesterol. This in turns helps in the prevention of heart related conditions such as heart attach, atherosclerosis, and stroke. Allicin may also support the overall health of the circulatory system. Allicin also acts as an anticoagulant and can help to regulate blood pressure levels.

How can I supplement with Allicin?

If you choose to take allicin in supplementary form, be aware that most garlic supplements do not contain allicin itself. Some products are standardised to contain a certain amount of alliin and will list the theoretical allicin potential. Some supplements will claim to contain as much or more allicin as a daily dose of fresh garlic but you will need to read the labels to be sure. The content of allicin is the most important indicator and the allicin should be defined in terms of micrograms or milligrams and be in a standardised amount. Allicin powder extract is the only way to get a stable and standardised amount of allicin that is ready to be used by the body directly.

So what should I buy?

We’ve found that the best way to get Allicin supplementation is by taking Nature’s Way Garlicin’s which can be purchased below via Amazon.com:

Spanish Language hacking

Who wants to know a second language? Everyone!

Who relishes the thought of having to study hour after hour, day after day, month after month, year after year to get to some basic level of proficiency – No one!

It’s true, learning a second language requires a great deal of commitment and requires quite a bit of motivation and dedication. But you know what, it’s not as difficult as it may first appear. Read on..

You see, for a language like Spanish, to comprehend more than 98% of the language requires 5 years of intense practise. But who needs to be a perfectionist when good enough is good enough.

Because to comprehend 95% of the Spanish language requires only 5 months of intense practise. A shit ton better than 5 years of effort isn’t it!!

I’m quite comfortable with the Thai language, and I’ve learnt that learning a second language can be lots of fun, open up new opportunities and introduce you to new people. It’s indeed life’s door opener.

In subsequent posts I’m going to reveal Spanish language’s most popular words, and learn an incredibly powerful grammer hack that can be applied to any language you learn.

Subscribe to my newsletter now so you can be first to hear when these two huge language hacks are released!

Until then, Adiós amigós!

What is Archimedes Lever?

“Give me a place to stand on, and I will move the Earth.”

Archimedes of Syracuse (c. 287 BC – c. 212 BC) was a Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer.

While Archimedes did not invent the lever, he gave an explanation of the principle involved in his work ‘On the Equilibrium of Planes’ which is over two volumes. The first book is in fifteen propositions with seven postulates, while the second book is in ten propositions. In this work Archimedes explains the Law of the Lever, stating, “Magnitudes are in equilibrium at distances reciprocally proportional to their weights.”
Archimedes uses the principles derived to calculate the areas and centers of gravity of various geometric figures including triangles, parallelograms and parabolas.

Earlier descriptions of the lever are found in the Peripatetic school of the followers of Aristotle. According to Pappus of Alexandria, Archimedes’ work on levers caused him to remark: “Give me a place to stand on, and I will move the Earth.”

Plutarch describes how Archimedes designed block-and-tackle pulley systems, allowing sailors to use the principle of leverage to lift objects that would otherwise have been too heavy to move. Archimedes has also been credited with improving the power and accuracy of the catapult, and with inventing the odometer during the First Punic War. The odometer was described as a cart with a gear mechanism that dropped a ball into a container after each mile traveled.

What is Pareto’s Law?

Pareto’s law (or the Pareto principle), according to Wikipedia, is the 80–20 rule, the law of the vital few, and the principle of factor sparsity) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

Examples:

  • 80% of your profits come from 20% of your customers
  • 80% of your complaints come from 20% of your customers
  • 80% of your profits come from 20% of the time you spend
  • 80% of your sales come from 20% of your products
  • 80% of your sales are made by 20% of your sales staff

Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto observed in 1906 that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population; he developed the principle by observing that 20% of the pea pods in his garden contained 80% of the peas. Business-management consultant Joseph M. Juran suggested the principle and named it after the Italian.

    Grammar Breakdown

Also from Tim’s blog comes this grammar hack to breakdown a language’s structure in a minute. Below once again is a Thai example:

The apple is red.
Thai translation: apple red

It is John’s apple.
Thai translation: Apple (possessive) John

I give John the apple.

I must give it to him.

I want to give it to her.
We give him the apple.
He gives it to John.
She gives it to him.

And so it begins!

And so it begins!

But before we talk about the here and now, let’s go back a few years…

Picture it, I’m well paid but performing a job I don’t enjoy. I’m on my annual leave – it’s April 2010 and I’m in Phuket, Thailand training Muay Thai at Patong Boxing Gym with Bill from fightpassport.com. It’s 35 degrees, I’m in a tropical paradise, training hard, and loving every minute of it. The brain starts thinking ‘I could get used to this’.

The problem is, for a variety of reasons you can’t just get a job in Thailand – it doesn’t work like that. I tell Bill that I’d love to do what he does – run websites, train Thai boxing each day and live permanently in the country they call the land of smiles.

 

I’m not spending that much money but I can’t afford to live here
