Man, talk about doing it for the paycheck. I know Sapp has a big image in Japan, but surely it's not worth that much if he doesn't even try. Hard to think this is the same guy that knocked out Hoost (x2) and almost killed Big Nog.

Is it necessary to see the other comic type movies in order for this one to work?

No, not really. You could go in and easily enjoy it for what it is without too much backstory.

LOLOL.....and then I would ram his nunchuks up his ass until
 he turned into a homo  Cheesy

No you wouldn't. He's a 6'4 close to 300lbs of solid muscle Delta Force kyokushinkai ninja blackbelt uber Mensa level genius. You'd only get those nunchukus up there if HE allowed you to get them up there  Wink.

I'm actually still catching up. So these Pedro and Hindemburg characters are the same people?

I loved it too. It was exactly what it set out to be - a perfect popcorn film that brought Marvels main players together. I had reservations about the Cap costume beforehand but I honestly only noticed it (in a negative way) a couple of times during the movie.

Every punch and kick sounds like a grenade explosion, too. So non-realistic.

In Australia I was a naturopath for 11 years - I had to do 4 years of nutrition and dietetics in my studies, but I was a psychologist before that, so had the luxury of working in a pretty specialised field. I had my own practice in which I spent about 50% of my time - I worked almost exclusively with kids (and their parents) who had been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD and learning disorders.

The other 50% of the time I was doing corporate health workshops and was also contracted to a small pharmacy chain where I was developing their health programmes - to try and give them a unique selling point in a very crowded cut priced marketplace.

I averaged from $95000 - $125000 Aussie dollars a year (gross), paid a lot back in tax and then put half the remainder back into the practice.

The clinical work was really interesting but I got sick of the parents not wanting to take responsibility after awhile. The corporate work was great and paid really well, but usually saw you splitting your day because most of it would take place at lunchtime. The pharmacy work was disappointing because I thought the concept was strong, but the average pharmacist was the most conservative breed of professional I've ever come across. As soon as I got down to store level to oversee the implementation of the programmes I knew I was pushing shit uphill.

It paid very well though.

The last 4 years in Germany I've been teaching Japanese taiko drumming and some martial arts and living off my wife! Much more relaxed here, gotta say.

Gotta agree - of all the internationals I've flown through, Changi is hands down far and away the best of them all.

Absolute worst, rudest, most frustrating and inefficient has to be Frankfurt. I happily more to avoid that place - fucking sucks.

I've heard some horrible stories about JFK but won't get to experience it for myself until August!
485  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Leg work out without squats on: April 27, 2012, 05:00:52 AM
I used to do them religiously and they were the best for size but I haven't done them in a year. I don't juice, I'm over 40 - I'm not going to get any bigger and I'm only going to get injured more easily so I switched to one legged leg presses instead. My legs have lost a little size but I don't really care - the presses are working out ok for me.
486  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: The Myth About Flat Bench is True on: April 25, 2012, 12:10:46 AM
Fucker got me as well last week and now I'm sitting here unable to lift my arm.

Hadn't done regular benches in a years - been working well with seated Hammers and flat db but thought I'd just change it up for variety. And you know, I actually thought to be careful because I'd not benched for ages. Spent a long time warming up shoulders - got through 3 sets pain free but the next day i was fucked.

Now I'm sitting here waiting for my second physio/osteo appointment of the week and it's only fucking Wednesday.

Fuck you bench press!

Yes he absolutely does look like shit but that was not my point. Shit or not, achieving that kind of mass is no joke. He may be a pathetic insecure little boy overcompensating for whatever, but he sure is huge.

True. He's a fucking mess but you can't deny it's an impressive tank top off season shot.

Its shame that his pec is torn. If its not, could be still looking good.

I agree - he has such a well put together physique. 51 years and looking in incredible shape.
489  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Mark Kerr: The Smashing Machine. on: April 19, 2012, 01:53:30 PM
  The only other fighting tournaments in the World that compare in brutality are Muay-Thai tournaments in Thailand.


Umm - you may not be aware of this, but from the late 1960's through to when I competed in the early 90's (and perhaps even today, although I suspect the rise of MMA has killed it off), there was quite a large fighting circuit in South East Asia, open to all styles, that allowed bare fist or 'covered' (ie - very light foam knuckle shields) striking to all parts of the body excluding the eyes and the back of the head. Throwing was allowed and strikes to a downed opponent were allowed (no grappling though - we all thought we didn't need it and it was thought that good technique saw you standing or in a dominant striking position after a throw). Groin strikes were legal. Joint attacks were legal. In this sort of format I often saw the thai fighters struggle with the larger range of offense than they were used to - and yes - the fact that these fights were often more 'brutal' than a typical Muay Thai match gave them some problems occasionally.

I'm taking nothing away from the MT people - they are awesome and have a fucking fantastic art and usually did very well in this format. In my very first tournament I was knocked out cold by a thai dude climbing on my leg and kneeing me in the face - I have the utmost respect for them - but to say nothing was more brutal than Muay Thai bouts until Vale Tudo reached the masses is not correct.

As far as the Smashing Machine goes - it is the best documentary I've seen. Goddam perfect and so poignant - especially his part at the end with Coleman. And if you listen to the filmmakers commentary, he says something along the lines of it being a film about a man who was the very best in the world at what he did, but he didn't really enjoy doing it all that much. What an incredible way to look at Kerr.
490  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Anyone done a ouija board or anything of the sort? on: April 17, 2012, 09:57:35 AM
I have no direct experience with ouija boards - but I do suspect that psychologically damaged people probably shouldn't go near them.

An acquaintance of mine - a girl who was on the periphery of my group of friends at uni, went completely batshit berserk after a ouija experience. Her and some friends - including a couple of my friends - had a session. My friends said weird stuff happened - doors slamming and curtains moving - but they were also drinking and thought it could have been imagination as well. They left early on. This girl though - she wound up in a psych facility and has been there ever since as far as I know (this was 1992 - last I heard about her was 2007 and she was still there).

I didn't know her well so I have no way of knowing if she had some predisposing mental condition, but all talk of the supernatural aside, it's not the sort of shit you should be playing with if you don't know for certain that your psychologically robust.

Dude, I wasn't even born until more than 30 years after the war and I couldn't give a single shit about Germany, that islam infested shithole.

Shit man - I'd love to have some Turks around my way. We're overrun with Russians here in SchwabenLand! They can't even offer a good Döner.
492  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Why do Gyms Fail as a Business? on: April 13, 2012, 11:19:20 AM
TA - what do you mean by 'gym'?

Where I am, the "Lifestyle centre" type places are going from strength to strength. I have nothing against these places - I see lots of people going to them and improving themselves - their fitness, their flexibility, nutritional knowledge through the courses offered etc etc.

The type of gym I want to train at - which is more than likely the place where most of us train - is not so healthy. I've had 2 really 'good' (for my wants) gyms close on me - mainly because the guys running them were keen trainers/competitors, but not in any way business men.

The big chains and fitness centre places - you can see how they're set up to make money. My gym - with it's cracked mirror and 6pm meat head crush is run by the nicest guy you'd imagine - but he thinks he's making a killing offering Powerade for 30% more than the supermarket.

I think this is big part of the problem. This and the fact that these places appeal only to the minority of trainers.
493  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Truth about natural dieting on: April 07, 2012, 10:50:53 PM
Periodic fasting is a great way to drop the pounds and maintain pretty much all of your lean mass - at least for me. I think the whole concept of fasting is completely overlooked - not just by the bodybuilding community but by the general population at large.
494  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How many Getbiggers hold rank in the martial arts? on: April 01, 2012, 10:39:30 PM
Been practising Choy Li Fut kung fu since 1978 - fought in open full contact tournaments in Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines in 1991/1992, been learning Tai Chi since 1988, have about 4 years of Southern Mantis mixed in along the way. I am very good friends with Patrick McCarthy who I have also done a little training with.

I don't know how to grapple, I am not the worlds best fighter, nor the toughest badass on the planet, I would have liked to have done MMA had it been around when i was younger. I know I can knock people out and I know which (few) techniques I can do it with with reasonable certainty. I know how it feels to be knocked out, choked out and spiked onto the floor. I practise because I enjoy it but don't teach anymore. I spend more time teaching Japanese taiko drumming these days.

Coach Huang

Chinese people love to eat. We all know this. I come from Singapore- eating is the national hobby. How do you stay so lean, with so much good food around you, and a culture of eating?

You're an inspiration. Thanks for this thread.

You can hate him but he inspired many people to change their lives, wasn`t "natty" liar and enjoyed his life to the fullest in his own way.

Get fucked.

Who did this clown inspire? The only thing he inspired people to do was laugh at bodybuilders. Honest to God - I have no idea why you bitches are posting about this fuckup. He had a good body. He's dead. He's dead because he was a fuckup. Why the hell would I want to allow myself to be inspired by this tool? Why the hell would I ever - ever - hold this character up as a role model for anyone else?

"Yes kids - all you need to do is walk around looking like a half sucked mango pip, hit the weights really hard, don't forget to comment on how hot it is whenever you go into a nightclub so you can take your shirt off, take lots of drugs, then go to Thailand and die."

Really inspirational   Roll Eyes

Fuckwits write about him like he's some sort of fucking hero - all he was was some retard who had had a good physique. Just because he looked good doesn't make him less of an idiot.

Yeah bro - he was fully sick...

All he did was was make bodybuilding more of a joke than it already is for most people.
498  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: The best of POF on: March 23, 2012, 04:18:06 AM
I don't understand....

Most women who aren't fat, are constantly thinking that they're fat, or worrying about getting fat, or asking you if this or that makes them look fat.

I applaud this fear of fat.

But at some point, when the skinny chick gets fat, she stops thinking she's fat? Or she thinks she's somehow become Fatty McGorgeous? Or the already fat chick decides she hot enough to unashamedly post herself on an online dating site, and expects she's going to get offers?

I mean, there a point where women go "Well, fuck it. From this point on, I shall gain weight and become a fatty"Huh?
499  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Bob chick cancer on: March 22, 2012, 02:18:10 PM
I swear we handle more cancer patients than any othe illness in my unit.  Some of the people i take care of have such agressive cancers that they may have only found out a month ago without any signs or symptoms only to be told they have a few months to live. We are not getting healthier people. Living longer does not mean a better quality of life with some if the stuff we deal with these days

Do you find the cancer sufferers are in general very nice people? Both my aunties are nurses and I used to work with a chemo specialist, and they all said that a majority of people with cancer were the nicest, easiest people in the hospital.

And nothing against Bob (because he' seems like a cool guy and I wish him nothing but the best), but they also said, in aggressive cases, it was usually those few who were total assholes that would make it through - like you really needed to have a "fuck everyone, it's all about me" attitude. Thought it was interesting but not too sure how much to read into it.
