Welcome to another episode of ‘Massive Feet’, the reality series with both a hopefully diminishing main protagonist and, very probably, audience.
Firstly, coming immediately after Part III but with two other posts in between, Part IV is part four in Roman numerals, not part I.V., as in ‘Bryntin is on an intravenous drip’. Which, given his previous lack of ability to stay upright on a bicycle detailed here, you may have been willing to think was the case.
Bryntin was worried that there would now be no progress in efforts to achieve the mass reduction of his feet that he had embarked upon, being as also, in between Part III and Part IV (not intravenous drip, or indeed, any intensive care at all) he managed to get himself employed, albeit on a part time basis.
As detailed before, initial stages of the employment were fairly intensive on Bryntin’s time, which did mean both less lazing about and daydreaming than usual but also impinged on the amount of time available in a day to go cycling around the countryside, for a few hours, three or four times a week (or in the shed on a trainer bike if wet and windy because he’s a wuss…)
This also resulted in the intended creating and posting of Massive Feet Part IV, scheduled to be July 23rd-ish in Bryntin’s head, to be forgotten about until now. Along with limited posting of any other type. Which is all good, obviously, and should be an indication of the creator of Bryntin’s successful and continuing renewed involvement in that which other humans call ‘real life‘ and less time trapped in the mad fantasy personality that appears on his blog.
So, to the meat of the post. Of which he, incidentally, is not eating very much of these days and is 95% vegetarian.
This is by pure calorie consumption choice rather than by any great moral reasons, although it will help open eyes that there is a lot of mainstream discussion around the unsustainable nature of modern livestock production now. (The word production is used deliberately, rather than the more twee ‘farming’, which still may be done by some of the traditional farmers you have in your minds eye but pales into insignificance against the large-scale factory-like production of animals for human consumption that actually keeps most of the developed world fed).
But Bryntin isn’t about to launch into any lectures about what he thinks other people should be doing themselves, largely because he recognises that very often he has no idea what he is doing anyway and nor do a lot of other people who make out that they do.
There was something else…?
Massive Feet Part I – 101.4 kg
Massive Feet Part II – 98.9 kg
Massive Feet Part III – 95.5 kg
Massive Feet Delayed Part IV –
So, it’s pleasing to know that Bryntin is still on a downward trajectory in pretty much all aspects – although also including mental ability, bladder control, hair – even if, on this occasion, he’s wearing normal socks instead of cycling ones.
He was hoping to have broken the 90kg barrier by this stage but, given that his lifestyle has not changed in any other way apart from the lack of cycling, working for a living and keeping his hands out of the biscuit tin, he is happy that Part IV has less Massive Feet than Part III.
Incidentally, for those worried about Artificial Intelligence and the algorithms impinging into our lives these days, Bryntin did attempt to have an imperial pounds and stone weight figure for how much weight he had lost, ready for those who just cannot deal with a kilogramme because it’s too logical, it makes too much sense or simply hate that it was a French idea.
(Ecosia, by the way, is an alternative to Google that gives a perfectly Google-like experience – it has plug-ins to make it the default on all the major internet browsers – but the adverts it shows you funds the planting of trees, which is a win in Bryntin’s book.
The answer he really wanted was just a little further down on the same page, but that wouldn’t have made the joke…)
