A late post, and a short one.  But one you’re going to read to the end just because of the headline.

Re: the happy and the focused: scientists, writing in Science magazine about a scientific experiment on happiness, discovered something about the science behind being happy. In an experiment involving thousands of volunteers stopping what they’re doing at random points of the day to answer questions on this iPhone app, these researchers discovered that “a wandering mind is an unhappy mind.”  The opposite is also true – a focused person is a happy person.  The top four  high-happiness activities, which correlated with the top four high-focus activities? In order: sex, exercise, talking/conversation, and playing.

And what is queerfit but sexy playful exercise bookended with a little conversating? Finally, scientific evidence explaining why queerfit makes you 345% happier every time you come join us at 10:00 on Saturdays in the little field just north of the Inman Park/Reynoldstown MARTA station.

As for the snatch, happiness abounds.  Whether we’re talking about sex or the amazing Olympic lift, it can’t be done well without total focus.  Here is the amazing Olympic lift, as performed during the 2009 Weightlifting World Championships by women in the 48kg class.  If you were doing something with a tremendous amount of focus before reading this post, you really should get back to that.  But since you’re here anyway, go on ahead to 1:30 on the video, when the weights get really heavy.  At 1:48, that’s 105 pound Wang Minjuan putting 204 pounds over her head in one seamless perfect motion.  There’s an Olympic weightlifting term for that. It’s “holy sh*t.”
