Rooster Teeth Animated Adventures - Gus' Gas Problem

The other day I got a bill from the gas company And I thought "this is weird, I just got a bill the other day, why am I getting another bill?" So I open up this new bill and it says Final Bill And I thought "well, this shouldn't be my final bill" So I called the gas company and they say "Oh Yeah, Yeah!" Well, your service has been cancelled. And I said "why" and they said "Oh A new tenant activated service at that address" And I said "New tenant?" I bought this house 2 months ago And I said "who activated service at this address" And On a hunch I said "Is it Peggy? And Peggy being the previous owner of the house And they said "Yes!" And I said, "Well I need to get my name back on the Account I need this to be mine!" [Burnie]: She still holds the gas rights? And they said "Well ok, we'll just need to charge you a $10 installation fee" "And we can get it switched back over to your name" And I said "No! Your not going to charge me a $10 installation fee!" And they said "Well its just, its a standard fee sir" And I said "I know its a standard fee, I paid it already!" "You can't charge me to reconnect it again!" And they said "I can't do anything about it sir." So I said "ok… I want to cancel everyones gas on my street." And they said "What?!" And I said.. "Apparently anyone can cancel anyones gas, so I'm cancelling everyones gas!" And they said "err.. hold on sir" And they put me on hold for about 10 minutes They come back and go "Yeah, you don't need to pay the fee sir" [Burnie]: Thats ridiculous! Do you think, when they put you on hold to go talk to the manager, it was because they realised that you really could turn off the gas.. [Gus]: Maybe the guy was figuring it out.. Lets go turn off everyones gas! And the managers like "What the fuck are you doing?!"

  1. The funny thing is, depending on your billing method (such as getting it in the mail) you could technically “own” the gas connected to every house in the residence. All you have to say is that the old owners moved out and you’re moving in or you’re the tenant and they won’t likely question you about it. All they may really ask in terms of question is, “What is the address of this building?” And “What is your billing information?”

  2. I think I know where the Gustavo thing in Camp Camp came from, On Gus’ final bill it said Gustavo.

  3. Now that i think about it: what was the problem here? Se was going to pay for his gas! Free gas dude! Why did you mess that up?!

  4. Grip training will add miniscule amounts of mass due to thickening of the tendons. You would want to focus on training that will cause the tendon to thicken, which takes an extremely long time because connective tissue grows much slower than muscle tissue (which is hard enough to grow as it is). There's not a lot of literature on tendon hypertrophy, as most people don't care about this. Most tendon research has been on physical therapy techniques to organize the fibres (in order to correct the disorganisation from tendinosis) rather than strength and conditioning research to actually increase size. From a quick literature search, I would say that relatively high volume heavy eccentric training is your best bet. As the primary signalling determinant is going to be growth factors, I believe you would also get better results using blood flow restriction training, but I haven't seen any studies directly on that. I can go into more detail on these training methods if you're interested.

    Fat Hypertrophy
    You might get slightly larger wrists by adding fat. But based on the fact that you already have "small" wrists, I'm guessing you don't distribute your fat to your wrists so this really isn't going to benefit you. And who wants more fat?
    Hypertrophy Hypertrophy
    By far the most effective thing for increasing your wrist size would be taking growth hormone or GH-modulating peptides.

    Ego Hypertrophy
    No one notices (much less cares about) your wrist size. Seriously, it's not an issue and has no effect on your life other than your own perceptions. You're better off focusing your attention on something meaningful, but if it really bothers you, increasing the muscle mass on your forearm will take attention away from it.

    Muscle Hypertrophy
    If you want to be more specific with your wrist-focused forearm training, the tiny muscles extensor indicis, extensor pollicis longus, extensor pollicis brevis, abductor pollicis longus, extensor carpi ulnaris, pronator quadratus, flexor pollicis longus, and flexor digitorum superficialis have muscle belly closest to the wrist. Have a look at some anatomy images, decide what you want to develop, look up the functions of those muscles, and then focus your training accordingly.

    General Hypertrophy
    Overall, your best bet for increasing your wrist size is going to be increasing your systemic growth hormone and trying to target that on your forearms a bit. Your top exercises for this would be heavy and high volume cleans, farmer walks, deadlifts, and maybe CNJs/snatches/squats. You will also get a massive GH boost from using blood flow restriction (BFR) training. There will be greater systemic increase if you wear the occlusion cuffs on your thighs, but there will be a greater localized effect if you wear them on your arms/forearms. I've personally never used occlusion cuffs on my arms or looked into literature comparisons so I can't really make any conclusions regarding using the cuffs on your arm vs forearm vs leg. I would alternate BFR with heavier stuff.

    Bone Hypertrophy
    The only other aspect of the wrist that we haven't talked about is bone. Personally I haven't looked into this too much, but I assume GH would have the greatest effect again. You can also stimulate bone growth with physical impact (literally whacking your wrists against things martial arts style) or from the tension force from tendons pulling on the bone. The only muscle that inserts on the wrist is the pronator quadratus, and I kind of doubt that this muscle can even exert enough force to stimulate bone growth, so I don't think this is the best option.
    Injury Hypertrophy
    Trying to train the wrists this way greatly increases your chance of wrist injury. Take care of them. Lots of mobility warm up.

    Hold heavy stuff until your hands fall off, heavy, high volume, eccentric contractions, cleans, farmer walk, deadlift, try blood flow restriction training, training forearm pronation might do something, do not get injured. But seriously, there's no need to worry about your wrists.

  5. This was the very first RTAA I ever watched and I still love it, mostly because this is something my Dad would have done in the same situation.
