Is there any place to get creatine cheaper than the common options on Amazon?

BulkSupplements' bag is the cheapest, at 9.5c/5g serving for the $18 1kg bag, but the half-kilo name brands right next to it are only slightly more per serving. I'd be willing to get a kilo but is that really the best price out there?

I mean this brand I've never heard of has the same price for a kg, and with a better container:

https://www.amazon.com/Nutricost-Creatine-Monohydrate-500G-Servings/dp/B01EVVQX9U/ref=sr_1_24_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1491158721&sr=1-24&keywords=creatine&th=1

Is there not some cheap chinese chinky brand that sells a kg for <$15 or something?
>>
Try alibaba for chinkshit.

"If anything is sacred the human body is sacred,
And the glory and sweet of a man is the token of manhood untainted,
And in man or woman a clean, strong, firm-fibred body, is more beautiful than the most beautiful face.

Have you seen the fool that corrupted his own body? Or the fool that corrupted her own live body?
For they do not conceal themselves, and cannot conceal themselves."

What makes a piece of literature 'patrician'?
What makes a man worthy of 'making it'?

Quality of language, mastery of language, depth of thought.

Nothing makes a man worthy of making it - monkeys with typewriters... we just have a better chance.

What are /fitlit/'s favourite movies?

I enjoy most of Schwarzenegger's ouvre.

Pans Labyrinth

Do you agree?
We need the division of the powers because, at the end of the day, every power will be abused and ONLY the power can stop the power?

How do you evenly distribute power?
>>
I would say, from a practical point of view, I agree.
>>34284
You can't until you have it. Marx's idea is quite flawed in that respect, and it showed with every revolution. I think the best idea is to gain power and then distribute it as a moral person. Like Aurelius - directly or Aristoteles - indirectly. These two men are great examples because they lived their philosophy.

Excerpt from 'The Wanderer'

"A wise man must be patient,
He must never be too impulsive
nor too hasty of speech,
nor too weak a warrior
nor too reckless,
nor too fearful, nor too cheerful,
nor too greedy for goods,
nor ever too eager for boasts,
before he sees clearly.
A man must wait
when he speaks oaths,
until the proud-hearted one
sees clearly
whither the intent of his heart
will turn."

(http://www.anglo-saxons.net/hwaet/?do=get&type=text&id=wdr)

From this list, why do you lack wisdom? Are you too reckless? Too greedy? Too weak?

What are you doing to change yourself so that you can become a sage?

I've been getting fit because I think the intensity of working out and lifting and pushing my body can help fortify my mind to overcome the basic, primal urges I have.

Been speaking with elders at an assisted living home as well, there are some very interesting people there, and some of them are founts of wisdom/knowledge.

Wise words. The quest of improving yourself is perhaps the most important one in this degenerate modern world.
