Funny Thoughts

My year at 1100ng/dL

I'm not a doctor, but I did manage to double my testosterone levels in a year. I'm going to talk about what I did, what I learned, and what I think about it:

  1. It's just a fact that male testosterone levels have been dropping for the past couple of years.
  2. I felt like I was in a rut and I wanted to feel better, and I did.
  3. I was such a psycho about it that I decided to go off the protocol.
  4. Despite that, I still think every man should get their levels tested and see if they can improve them. And just understand how they feel.

Public Baths

Going to American baths is just so weird. I spent my summer in Japan visiting different onsens, and it was both a natural and spiritual experience. Before entering the water, everyone would bathe in the front, and kids would learn from their dads how to bathe. I would often sit on the edges of cliffs, gazing at the water or the sunrise, and it felt like we were monkeys, freely splashing about in nature.

In contrast, the time I spent in LA or New York City at various bathhouses was different. No one looked like an animal; instead, everyone seemed focused on optimization. People barely bathed before entering the water, wearing their dirty little speedos and swim trunks that they had definitely peed in the month before.
