Fuck. I was once made to clean the entire toilet block and then sent to the principals office for a caning!

I'd be more than happy with just one....

I've been doing high volume for selected body parts for the past few months - chest, back and shoulders mainly.

The pump is cool but it takes a lot of time.

Always had very good results on a low volume high intensity programme, but I'm getting older and find that training this way now leaves me with some joint pain.

Thanks for all the responses people.

I should have disqualified you Scandinavians - it seems like you all come out of the womb speaking English better than native English speakers (maybe not the Finns so much).

I was recently at the Europa School in Varese, Italy, where there are 3 languages of instruction in every class. It was so humbling to see the students chatting to each other in Italian, then switching to French or German when they spoke to a teacher, then making phone calls in perfect English. I really think multi-lingualism is one of the best gifts a parent can give their children.

I have friends I learnt German with who refuse to speak their mother tongue to their children because they want them to be as 'normal' as possible. I can kind of understand the thinking but it seems like such a wasted opportunity to me.

Sev - I am open to the prospect of past lives. When I first came to Germany on a visit I couldn't leave fast enough. Hated the place. Had an almost physical reaction to the people - hated them. I promised myself I would never return. Nowhere else in Europe did I feel this way - just Germany.

Fast forward a few years and I found myself in a spiritualist church (totally by accident - long story) and some woman tells me I died in a concentration camp in Germany. (Strangely enough, I had mainly jewish friends growing up).

fast forward a few more years, here I am living in Germany, married to a German. Must be a lesson there somewhere...

mt druitt waterworks. awesome urban legend.

Yeah - it was definitely Mt Druitt in my memory. Good to know that it wasn't true.

Cool. Your English is excellent. Is it normal for English to start at age 8 in Romania?

I used to teach at a bilingual high school here and while some of the kids left with a high level, there were some kids who couldn't manage a sentence (not too different from most schools I guess).
33  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Question for the Getbiggers with a non English first language on: March 24, 2014, 11:59:12 PM
What was/is the hardest thing to learn when you learnt English?
I was trying to explain something to someone here in Germany the other day and thought, English really could be confusing if you didn't grow up with it.

Second question - how did you all get so good at it? I'm always pretty impressed at how well some of you non native speakers write in English.
34  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: People are sick on: March 24, 2014, 11:54:22 PM
I heard that was just an urban legend.  I remember when people used to tell that story.

maybe you're right - I would have heard it at school, but I was pretty sure it also appeared on the news. Memory is a bitch though - I just remember the thought leaving an impact on me.

There was a case in Australia back in the 80's where razor blades were found glued inside waterslides. There are some strange types out there.

That was Mike Quinn's excuse for coming in fat. Said he was doing hours of cardio but the high fat diet was making him fat.

U were 17 in college and then 25 yrs later in HS??

It felt like it sometimes.
38  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Another classic Weider lie on: March 17, 2014, 11:25:12 PM
I was 17 and had just started uni when I picked up Muscle and Fitness for the first time. I thought "Fuck - I need EVERYTHING shown here. How am I supposed to afford it all?".

25 years later I had a high school class with a guy who would rattle into class with a bag full of beta alanine, chicken embryo capsules, protein powder, creatine, L carnitine and god knows what else.

Some things don't change (except for how much disposable income the kids have these days).

My friends in Sydney tell me some suburbs are becoming unliveable because of the Somalian refugees. One of them left her job because of them and the area where she was working.

"Exactly right".

Does my head in. If it's right, it's right. If it's 50% right, it's not right. If it's 99% right, it's not right. If it has to be 'exactly right' you're a fucktard.

"Karma is a bitch" when someone gets paid back for being a dick.

That's not karma. That's getting your comeuppance. That's payback. People should learn what 'karma' means before throwing it around.
41  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Any Ivy League Grads Here? on: March 11, 2014, 02:20:46 PM
Is there really a difference between the US ivy league places or is it really all much the same?

Does a Harvard graduate look down on someone who went to Princeton? Does a Yale person feel superior to the Columbia person?

Just curious.
42  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Can money buy you the hottest women? on: March 11, 2014, 05:54:59 AM
A good insiders perspective can be heard on Kevin Smith's podcast when he spoke with Dave Choe. Some of the stuff Choe says about his life once he became rich is ...well, it's worth listening to!

Here's the youtube link

If anyone didn't already know this - sweet potato and cinnamon make a great combination.

Just sayin'  Wink
44  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How do you freeze a woman that talks too much? on: March 05, 2014, 06:52:04 AM
You won't change her - this is who she is. A friend of mine can't even take his wife to the cinema because she just talks all the way through.

There are plenty of other hot women out there who you'll enjoy spending your time with more than this one.
45  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Giving up dairy on: February 28, 2014, 03:57:25 AM
I went the other way. I was dairy free until I moved to germany where I've spent the last 5 years eating organic grass fed dairy products in the form of yoghurt, butter, cream and occasionally milk.

I've developed lipomas on my head since coming here. None of the doctors who cut them out think it has anything to do with the dairy food (they think everyone should eat diary anyway), but it's the only major change in my diet I can think of.

I also get more sinus problems since moving here - but it's also a lot colder than Australia so who knows? I try and avoid it but it's hard in this country.

Dude could walk onstage right now. Looks great.

Pretty girl, good rack, but I don't really get why she's suddenly the 'it' girl. I've never heard her speak before: is she especially charismatic?

There are plenty of attractive women with good tits (and better bodies) out there. How is this one suddenly the girl of the moment?
49  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Real Hebrew Models on: February 17, 2014, 04:46:38 AM
I've heard so many people tell me Israel is full of smoking hot women. There must be some truth to this.

Rightly so. And nice that Stan Lee did the honours.
