Now that all that V-Day hoopla is done and over with, I can get back to what I like most: random Internet crap and meaningless anecdotes. So today I will post some visuals that are sure to blow your mind!

Visual Effect #1: Holy Crap It Really is the Big Floating Head of Jesus!
(a.k.a Religious Pareidolia)

I don't know about you, but I can't NOT see that decapitated Jesus head, although if you stare really close you will see that it is actually just a baby in a bonnet and some background brush.

Visual Effect #2: OMG, I'm a Hideous Beast!
(a.k.a The Thatcher Effect)

[automatically rotates every 5 seconds]

Apparently the brain has a hard time detecting features in upside down faces, so the next time you knock over a bank you should do it while walking on your hands. *cue rimshot*

Visual Effect #3: Ahhh! My Eyes!
(a.k.a Make it go away! Make it go away now!)

Puke. Enjoy.

Tony Horton's 10-Minute Trainer Update


So. Day 30. Still 167 pounds. But I can only assume that I lost ten pounds in fat and gained ten pounds in muscle. I do actually think that I may have lost a little weight in my face, but that's probably just an illusion created by the false confidence I've slowly accumulated simply by NOT sitting on my couch for ten minutes each day.

I'm not giving up yet, though, because if my theory is true then at some point the muscle gain will stop when I don't increase my resistance and that's when the dramatic weight loss will finally become apparent. It really is that simple.

Another "WTF, Tony?!?" moment I had the other day was when I noticed that Tony's 10-Minute countdown clock in the bottom corner of the television screen actually pauses and even adds on time occasionally if it reaches zero before the end of the workout. Ten minutes, my ass.

Weight: 167

I couldn't see anything BUT the Jesus for a long time. I was sure it was a fake because the jesus was so obvious.

You're upside down mouth face freaks my shit out.

That's ALL I could see too was the floating Jesus head! {{{Shudder}}}

I concur with Sarah about the upside down mouth face.

I don't get #3, is it supposed to look like it's moving?

Didn't you say at the beginning that you were supposed to do THREE 10-minute workouts a day? I don't think it's actually possible to lose weight if you only work out 10 minutes a day. Sorry man.

I think the point of #3 is just to make your eye go all crossed and give you a headache.

As for Tony, the whole point of the 10-Minute trainer is that you are supposed to get good results in only ten minutes a day due to his groundbreaking "stacking" technique, which basically just means you do ten really intense moves nonstop for ten minutes straight. He does recommend that to achieve the best possible results you should do more than one workout per day, but the point is you should only have to do one if that's all you have time for.

That's his claim, not mine.
