Try using cross grip and you can also do the whole thumb locking method too.
I can hold the bar just fine.

1 set, probably 30. I do a few sets of 20 usually when I work shoulders and back. Real pull ups, not swinging all over the place kicking people in the face.

You know what I really dislike?

Those old-style soap dispensers in public restrooms wherein you would press upwards on a vertical metal rod with the palm of your hand, and a tiny amount of powdered soap would be dispensed into your palm. And the soap would always feel sort of gritty and oily, and it was something of a balancing act to get enough water onto your hands to make it do something useful without immediately washing it all away.

Well, what can I say? That crappy powdered soap is absolutely worthless for getting caviar stains out of silk.

I haven't seen one in the past decade or two, but prior to the widespread availability of liquid hand soap (as we have in public restrooms today), most such dispensers contained a product which, now that I think about it, was remarkably similar in every way to powdered laundry detergent, apart from the whole "easily makes things clean" aspect.

I've always used gojo, but since painting the building and buying some painter's hand cleaner at Sherwin, I'll never go back.

Man decapitated when wood chipper sucks up rope

Friday, January 13, 2012

05:13 PST Nevada City, Calif.

A Northern California tree trimmer has been decapitated after an industrial wood chipper apparently sucked up a rope tangled around his neck.

Nevada County sheriff's deputies initially said 50-year-old Martin Lara was feeding brush and was pulled head-first into the wood chipper by the rope.

But coroner's Sgt. Paul Schmidt tells Sacramento's KCRA-TV ( http://bit.ly/w4SqEP) that something got caught in the wood chipper and got tangled around Lara's neck, decapitating him.

Schmidt couldn't confirm it was a rope that tightened around his neck.

The tree trimming crew says they heard Lara scream at about 8:15 a.m. Thursday while they worked in Nevada City. He was dead when they went to investigate.

This is probably the perfect murder cover...EVER.

Knock someone out with a baseball bat, loosely tie a rope around their neck, load their bludgeoned head into the chipper.

I read this news headline and expected a different outcome:

Man steals snow blower, runs over owner

INDIANA— Police in Porter County, Indiana, are looking for the driver of a pickup who ran over a man, after stealing his snow blower.

The incident happened around 1 a.m. Thursday in the 300 block of Pepper Creek, a neighborhood along Indiana 149 east of Wheeler.

Jon Talmadge, 43, told police he went outside to check out some noise he'd heard. That's when he saw a man loading his snow blower onto the bed of a red pickup.

Talmadge says he tried to stop him, but was injured and is hospitalized.

The suspect is described as approximately 6-feet 2-inches tall, weighing about 180 pounds, with a dark complexion.
