Autism by way of technology. No common sense at all.

Brilliant. Can I use this?

Jelena Jankovic is known as a bit of a princess on tour. No doubt she knew exactly what she was doing and the reaction she would have received. It's quite normal for women players to leave the court for a clothing change.

I've been damn near everywhere in my time in the military except asia:  here's my take...

1)  Paris, France-  Oh, my Lord just visit one day, almost ALL the girls are just perfect!!! Thin waists & Hourglass hips!!
2)  Stuttgart, Germany-  PARADISE for guys who like girls from South Germany who have Black hair!!!
3)  Vienna, Austria-  What can be said unless you've been there??  Beauty upon beauty!!
4)  Montreal, Canada-  The girls there are SO delicious we used to travel 2 hours there & back on weekend leave!! =)
5)  Washington, D.C./Arlington, VA-  Very HUMID city, like walking in a hot bowl of soup- the white dresses girls wear CLING to their bodies and you can see their lingerie underneath!!!

I live an hour outside Stuttgart. Gotta disagree with you brother. Some nice ones for sure, but you're not swimming in them like you do in Scandinavia.

Paris - yes - would agree. The Parisian girl attitude goes a looong way. I had a chick sit on the train and stare at my crotch for 15 minutes, look up and smile as she was getting off and invite me for coffee.

Vienna - yep. Hot. Very very hot women in Vienna. Much better than Stuttgart - you get that mix of Czech and Balkan blood there as well.

He certainly seems a bit 'special' but at least he re-racks his weights.

For sheer volume Oslo is the city with the hottest women I've ever seen. They've killed all the ugly ones at birth.

Manhattan is also crazy. Lots more variety than Norway too. I had whiplash before I even walked out of the airport.

Scandinavians are too nice. This is opening a door that is going to be very hard to close again.

I would have learnt a couple of languages properly when my mind was still flexible enough to do it easily.

Would have been far less picky with the women I slept with. I turned down a few really sweet pretty girls when I was younger and I kind of regret that.

I had the chance to study shootwrestling in Japan in the early 90's. I let myself get talked out of it and I put myself through naturopathic college instead (which I don't regret - just would have liked to have spent some time doing nothing but martial arts).

I was never a party person and for the most part I'm pretty content with the choices I made back then.

Oh - I never really appreciated how much I could put my body through and have it recover so quickly. I've just walked off a tennis court after 2 hours and going to the gym tomorrow will be tough. I would never have even considered that a big deal when i was in my early 20's and I'd probably be more appreciative of my recuperative ability if I could talk to my 20 year old self.

So you are one of all these guys we laugh at in youtube clips? Grin

yep - I would have been that day.

Minotauro has nothing left to prove - he should have stopped a while back.

Even Cro Cop's left leg couldn't do what Nelson did (granted - it's an older Nog).

BMX'ing when i was 14 , coming off a jump and landing on my crossbar. I was too stunned to even shit my pants.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: The state of internet overload leading to ADHD. on: April 11, 2014, 05:26:28 AM
I've been thinking about this a lot recently and about my perception that the next generation have major problems staying focussed on something (although they would probably criticise me for being unable to "multi-task" like they can).

When you allow yourself to be reachable 24 hours a day, when you have no need to wait for information to arrive at your fingertips, when you can document your life and share it immediately with others, and respond immediately to what is happening in someone else's life - and you expect all this....what is one logical end result?

Attention and behaviour problems.

Like I said in a previous post, we're becoming beings that document everything but pay attention to nothing. I don't personally see how any good can come from being 'switched on' or connected 24 hours a day, every day. I would be interested to know how many teens could go a week without any social media at all.

It may just be a natural process of change, but it to my middle aged mind, it doesn't feel especially healthy.
12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP Vince Comerford on: April 11, 2014, 05:18:16 AM
Never. Because sometimes it's a success story, ala R.Robinson and alikes... Everyone hopes it will turn out the same for them too. The problem is - not everyone has the genes to be it that way... A gamble.

To a point it's gamble, for sure.

If you already know you have a heart condition, and if that condition has already caused some serious ramifications and you still use? That's not a gamble anymore - that's just a week ego and stupidity.

Could you expand on this?  I've never fasted as long as you have, usually only 36-48 hours, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on how to best break the fast

I only do a long fast once or twice a year and I do think shorter fasts can be just as helpful. I tend to do a long one when I'm mentally bogged down so my process kind of reflects this.

Two days before starting I'll stop animal products. The day before I'll just eat very lightly. I don't feel good starting a fast if I still have a pile of food digesting inside me. Depending on how I feel I may or may not eat that night before.

When I break the fast I'll take 2-3 days to start eating more complex foods, so typically my first meal afterward is a piece of fruit, with some vegetable soup for dinner.

The next day I'll eat a little more than the first day back, perhaps adding some rice or 'heavier' more fibrous veggies.

Third day back I'll introduce a little bread and some nuts/seeds. Maybe I'll have some plain yoghurt (I tend to avoid dairy anyway).

Fourth day back in and I'll have some eggs.

Day 5 I'll start back with chicken or fish.

I don't really see the sense in giving your body a break only to jam it full of food again the minute you stop. It takes awhile (for me at least) to get back up to speed and I try and think in terms of how long something will take to digest. I know nuts are pretty complex but I don't go overboard. Other than the nuts I'll try and keep fats as low as I can until the end.

If I'm just eating intermittently though (like just having dinner, or just breakfast and lunch or whatever) then I don't worry too much.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Who fasts here? on: April 09, 2014, 03:20:10 AM
of course you should drink water. Total abstinence won't benefit anything.

I usually drink water, herbal teas, and vege or vege/fruit juices.

First day is easy, second day is usually the challenge, after that it's all good.

You feel like you have more energy (when you probably don't). I did notice this time around at day 5 I was starting to struggle with my German and had to really concentrate to speak it properly. I broke the fast the day after.

Breaking a fast correctly is also important. You have to restart slowly. It was about 4 days before I ate any animal products again.
16  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: why do smelly foreigners insist on shaking hands with everyone in the gym? on: April 08, 2014, 11:44:54 PM
Try living in Germany. Every time you see someone they want to shake your hand. Doesn't matter if they saw you a week ago, out comes the hand. Drives me crazy.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Who fasts here? on: April 08, 2014, 01:11:09 PM
Similar to Pedro - I usually fast a week or 6 days every year. It's a good mental clean out as well as a rest for your body.

Depending on how I'm feeling, I may also not eat once a week, or not eat until midday. I think it's done me a lot of good.

Europe is not far behind...  Embarrassed Cry

Australia too.

I was back there for Christmas. Of all the friends I caught up with, only one of them left their phone alone.

We are becoming a species that photographs everything, but pays attention to nothing.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Men are nothing more than Clowns to the Modern Woman; on: April 07, 2014, 10:56:42 PM

 Whatever natural connection that once existed between the sexes has now been severed. Neither sex needs each other so we dedicate ourselves to corporations, entertainment, and base pleasures instead, and this is a great tragedy that most people believe is a sign of progress, a cause for celebration.

Very well written. I think this part is especially accurate. I see this in many 20-30 year olds I know - minute attention spans, constantly looking for the next bit of entertainment.
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: how exactly does money get you women? i think this is a myth on: April 07, 2014, 10:29:12 PM
I had a mate a few years ago - not a good looking guy - who would go out, find a hot woman and position himself in her vicinity and then proceed to have a fake conversation into his cellphone, reorganising his 'surgeries' for the next day. Or sometimes it was to close a real estate deal on an apartment in Paris or New York or somewhere similarly exotic.

He'd speak loudly enough to be overheard and he would be swimming in pussy. I can't think of a night where he didn't pick up some stunning woman.
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Young and old: differences? on: April 05, 2014, 10:21:26 PM
I've been at it for 26 years. I'm 44 now. You don't realise how indestructible you are when you're young and how easily you can bounce back. I've had a couple of bad injuries (ruptured disks) but otherwise it's the niggling little things that start to bug you - the tendonitis in the elbows or the sore knees that seem to reappear too soon.

I've always tried to lift heavy but have recently changed it up and am now doing more volume. I don't enjoy it as much but I think it's easier on my body. Falco is right - you train just as hard but the body doesn't respond as well as it used to.

The good thing is I care a hell of a lot less! If I miss a workout or two (or three or four), I don't care. If I only eat vegetables or bread for a few days, I don't care. I'd much rather be having fun kicking back or eating good food than worrying about what it's doing to my body.

I think from early to late 30's I was my biggest and strongest, but as I said, I don't really care so much anymore. I've even contemplated just stopping completely for awhile and doing something else. I would never have thought that way even 5 years ago.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Who kills themselves at 96? on: April 05, 2014, 10:06:09 PM
My grandmother died at 96 but would have suicided a few years earlier if she'd been able. She'd say she'd just had enough, her body wasn't hers anymore and living in a nursing home was undignified.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Who owns or runs a gym? on: April 01, 2014, 10:39:30 PM
The demographic in your area (apart from racial mix) almost exactly matches a new suburb my cousin has moved into.

The one gym in that area is booming and from speaking to her, it's pretty much the courses people are coming for.

They have a fairly standard equipment profile (cables are popular) but it's the zumba, cardio boxing, walking group, diet group etc etc that people are coming for according to her.

Daytime is downtime, but when the stay at homes come in to train - usually women. Don't forget some of those adductor/abductor machines!

Liberal pussies. Boy will these kids get a shock when they enter the work place.

I know it's kind of the in thing to bash the millenials but I really think most of the next generation are in for a big awakening when they hit the workforce.
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Pissed off teacher makes kid clean piss... on: March 30, 2014, 10:49:09 PM
Fuck. I was once made to clean the entire toilet block and then sent to the principals office for a caning!
