Men are adverse to cardio. There, I said it. I’m no doctor, but I suspect there’s a direct correlation to heart disease being the leading cause of death for men. Topping the list of cardio to avoid is running. Yes- swimming is even worst, but as GOD gave us lungs that breath air instead of […]

Explosive VQ at Vortex

When YHC first joined F3 in 2018, he lived in downtown Durham and almost exclusively attended Durham AO’s. Since moving to the Meadowmont area last summer, YHC has been gradually exploring more Chapel Hill AO’s. This was his first visit to the Vortex, which is somewhat confusing and somewhat understandable. On the confusing hand, the Vortex […]

Back to School

I used to like to work from home before COVID. It saved me commute time and there were no distractions. Now, there’s nothing BUT distractions! I don’t know about any “new normal,” but I do know we need to get these kids back in school ASAP! Since there’s no timeline for that, we went back […]

YHC took it upon himself to dig up a Back Blast from the Past in a vainglorious attempt to unearth the most-vortexey Q of all Vortex Q’s. Spending multiple dozens of minutes deep in the archives was eye-opening. […]
