Russia: Surprisingly Old School

At least half of these 16 traits give Russians Old School street cred.

Uphill, both ways, yada yada …

“A story about a teacher assigned to a one-room schoolhouse in South Dakota in the 1880s will confirm suspicions that America has gone soft when it comes to dealing with the cold. The story is from These Happy Golden Years, the second-to-last book in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s beloved “Little House” series about growing up on the American frontier. It describes the protagonist, a 15-year-old teacher named Laura, traveling a half a mile in the snow to get to school.”

She Ate Four And A Half Pounds Of Steak In Less Than Three Minutes

“Molly Schuyler of Bellevue, blew away a world record during a recent trip to Portland, Oregon. She knocked out a 72-ounce steak in 2 minutes and 44 seconds. The old record was 6 minutes and 38 seconds.”
I’m not sure why this is Old School.
I’m not even sure if it is Old School, but because my bucket list includes winning the “Big Texan Challenge” at The Big Texan in Amarillo, TX, this woman has made the blog.
UPDATE: I recently booked two gigs in California and Texas in April with a day in between them. There may be time to cross off an item on the bucket list. Amarillo, brace yourself.

A Weight Room Without A Squat Rack Is Like A Table Without Legs

“Planet Fitness regularly touts how it’s not like all the other gyms and encourages soft people to indulge in its purple haze of mediocrity. And now they’re taking it one step further: Getting rid of squat racks for being “intimidating.””

Keep It Old School, My Friend
