RIP the old 240  Sad

Even Rob would admit that he went a bit OTT on getbig a few years ago.
The old 240 could be hilarious one minute and then a total prick the next.
Becoming a dad has certainly helped him grow up. He seems more self assured these days. Or maybe he's just too knackered bringing up his kid to give a f*ck about owning someone on a forum. Either way Rob is well liked on getbig and deservedly so.

That video is Steve Creighton. Cool guy. Prime Scottish Beef.
I haven't seen Stevie in a couple of years but I believe he still hangs around with a mate of mine.

Hey Beefy / Stevie,
How are your old training partners Homer and Deek ?


Sorry Beefy / Stevie,
I've not be up in Wishaw for about 9 years. I didn't realise that your wee mate Mark (Homer) was dead.

What if Huh
Once upon a time there were many parallel universes in existence until one day when a new universe was created which didn't support the idea of a multiverse and at that point all of the other universes ended leaving just one universe. 
yeah big IF


Like IF my aunt ha a dick

she'd be my uncle

but if a multiverse gives us an infinite amount of possibilities then even that is possible.

Some scientist actually beleive they exist. Parallel universes or other dimenisions would make up a thing called the multiverse! Many versions of other earths could exisit. Imagine if one earth where Hillary Clinton became president! Or another where JFK never died. Or yet another where Arnold decided to not be a governor and decided to continue doing movies. Only thing is it's only a theory and not hardcore proof! As the sayin' goes tho What IF?

Cheers pal.

The bleak weather is such a huge part of our lives that it requires a unique brand of humour to keep our spirits up.
Do you remember when Billy Connolly, who now lives in California, told the story about when he took his kids back to Glasgow? Apparently one of them looked up and said "Dad, why is the sky so low?"

Jay was off again and there was NO Victor to negate Dexter's showing , if Victor competed he would have replaced Jay and in my opinion he will replace Dexter in 09

Very possible if Vic knee recovers well.
However I was still surprised that the judges awarded Dex the title this as I thought Jay was better than last year. I actually thought this year would be almost an exact rerun of last year with Jay making the correct adjustments for the evening show to have done enough in the eyes of the judges to keep his title.

Did they have many different judges this year?
Were the judges given new directives?
Or did the judges just do their jobs properly?

Personally I wouldn't have given Jay 2nd but it did add to the drama by keeping him at the final showdown.

10  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Difference between judging at the Olympia 07 and 08 ??? on: September 29, 2008, 01:38:07 PM
I am glad Dexter won as I thought he deserved the crown but I am still surprised that the judges gave it to him. Last year they gave it to a watery Jay over Dex so I expected much this same this year with Jay overcoming yet another poor start to come good in the evening show and collect his 3rd title in succession.

I appreciate that I am only going by the photographs as I wasn't at either show but last year I though Dexter beat Jay easily so what was the difference between the judging at this years Olympia compared to last years?

what was up with the pathetic ref cortez?    All he kept doing was butting into the fight and saying "Ricky" "Ricky"

like he was trying to ask Hatton for the fucking time or for a light or can you spare a dime

what..did he have money riding on mayweather or something?



Totally agree with you mate plus of course he ruined the fight.
 
It was not a classic fight by any stretch of the imagination. Mayweather has always had great spoiling tactics and with a referee like Cortez the fight was always going to be a nightmare for Ricky. I still believe Hatton could have taken it to the wire but after Cortez deducted a point the writing was on the wall. Especially since Hatton had to change his style and take a few more chances. The first knockdown by Mayweather was a peach of a punch but Hatton did run into it.

Don't get me wrong I think that Hatton only had small chance of winning but that points deduction was the catalyst for the knockout.

13  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Sports Discussion Boards / Re: Mayweather crushes Hatton, I told you so!!!!!!!! on: December 10, 2007, 09:23:43 PM
On the radio this morning they asked Hatton "what would he do different in the rematch"?

He replied, "Not get in the ring".

I think he will go back down to 140lb, fight Rees or Witter for a belt and then end his career unifying with Malignaggi at the MSG.

I could be massively wrong, though. I usually am.

That would be an ideal way for Hatton to end his career but I have a sneaky suspicion his pride will get the better of him and he'll get mixed up in another stupid fight. I think the Mayweather fight was a stupid fight for him to take on after his poor display at welterweight against Collazo.

However fair play to Hatton. He has balls and he let's be honest he was was very entertaining during the pre-fight tour and again after the fight itself.
Did you hear him in the interview right after the fight when he said , "What a fluke that was!!"

Hatton may not have Mayweather's boxing skills but he could teach him a thing or two about connecting with the fans.
Mayweather is so fucking wrapped up in himself he probably thought people actually believed the insencere bullshit he spouted after the fight. Even though Hatton had just been knocked out he was still in more touch with reality than May-dancing-queen-Weather.

I've heard stories about him lighting cigars with lit twenties. I have a feeling he will be regretting that in the not too distant future.

Sadly those stories are true my friend. In fact my mate was in the same bar in EK when it happened.

I met Harrison a few times down at Frank Connor's gym a number of years back.
My first shit was bigger than him.
Technically he was a very good boxer but that's about the only good thing you can say about the guy.

How many of the current world champions in the UK are Scottish? Oh yes, that's right...None. Every now and then I like to watch Alex Arthur v Michael Gomez; the sight of the "next big-thing out of Scotland" getting demolished by the northern simpleton never fails to raise a smile on my face.

BTW, Scot Harrison? Bwahahahahaha!

Did Bob Chick suggest you co-host next years Mr O with him?
If he didn't you should have mate.

18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Derek Anthony Spit on Vince Goodrum!!!!!!!(humilated him) on: September 29, 2007, 07:46:52 PM
He can't strike Derek because he would be arrested for assault.

They should plan a formal event, a boxing match perhaps. That way they can settle the score legally.
True but it takes to long to organise.

Basically if two guys WANT to fight each other then as long as the ain't hurting innocents or damaging someone else's property then I think we should let them do it. 
Then all the have to do is find a quite spot and kick the shit out of each other.

Maybe if Big Arnie gets into the White House that might be top of his agenda.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Derek Anthony Spit on Vince Goodrum!!!!!!!(humilated him) on: September 29, 2007, 07:33:02 PM
if i was vince i would have told derek i stuffed his mother like a thanksgiving turkey while his father licked my anus and see if he would spit on me agian

vince man...seriously you should have knocked that piece of shit out

spitting on someone is about the lowest thing you can do besides kicking someone while they're down

Agreed.

Well almost.

I don't believe that it's a low thing to kick someone while they're down as long as you are the one who put them down in the first place.
If Vince had smacked DA down then he would have earned the right to jump on his face.
One jump should do the trick.
However jumping up and down on someone when the fight is over is most certainly the lowest of the lows.

Hey Vince ! Respect to you man. You proved alot of haters wrong this weekend.

Vince sounds like a real character.  I admire that.  I hope he beats the piss out of that grasshopper Billy.  For being on the sauce so much, Billy sure looks like shit stuffed in a duffel bag.

I know Long Island well, and Billy's is not a LI accent.  That's a rich punk from up Island trying to sound like he's a tough guy from Brooklyn. Roll Eyes

Vince is absolutely fantastic. He seems like a genuinely funny guy and after this clip he's proved to be one courageous mother f*cker. If his biceps were as big as his balls he'd beat Ron Coleman into 2nd place at the this year's Mr O.

I hope all the guys who said he wouldn't show give him due respect.

Bob should ask Vince to co-host the big show . Now that would be the best (most entertaining ) Mr O ever !!!

Agreed Harvey lost the plot however I wouldn't confuse composer with Screech thinking - surely that crazy bald guy wouldn't attack me in front of all these people while the cameras were rolling.

Ultimately there was still enough of a doubt in Schreech's mind which accounts for the "I have just shit a brick" expression on his face.

23  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Steroids Info & Hardcore / Dermacrine - the new topical testosterone delivery solution ??????? on: March 09, 2007, 02:54:15 AM
I got an email from EliteFitness.com which says :

Primordial Performance has coined this product as Dermacrine ( Derma, meaning skin, and crine referring to the endocrine system -hormone system). As the name implies, Dermacrine is a serious hormonal optimizer utilizing an advanced transdermal delivery system.

Developed over the past 18 months, the main ingredient in Dermacrine is DHEA. You're probably thinking to yourself right now, DHEA supplements have been around for years, and have never done much to boost testosterone. However, Primordial Performance has developed a proprietary technology that makes DHEA up to 20x more effective at converting to testosterone.

You see, DHEA is absorbed through the skin about 10x better than it is absorbed orally. Most fascinating, is that DHEA actually converts to other anabolic hormones as it passes the skin, since the skin is extremely concentrated in the steroidogenic enzymes required to convert DHEA to other hormones such as 7alpha-DHEA, androstenediol, androstenetriol, and testosterone. It is these hormones that are responsible for the muscle building, fat burning and sexual stimulating effects of Dermacrine.

Those of you with hair loss or prostate issues will also be pleased to learn that the pregnenolone in Dermacrine can control DHT levels. You see, when pregnenolone passes through the skin, it also interacts with steroidogenic enzymes. When this happens, pregnenolone is converted to progesterone. Progesterone is a hormone that can limit the conversion of testosterone to DHT, thereby helping to avoid excessive DHT formation.
 
Now, you may be thinking that a bunch of pro-hormones are not going to help with PCT, however the pro-hormones DHEA and pregnenolone have some interesting properties. You see, when the body is administered ONLY testosterone (AAS) it degrades the steroidogenic enzymes responsible for its own creation.

1) However when you administer DHEA and pregnenolone, they will actually increase the enzymes required for their own production. For instance, DHEA will increase StAR activity, which helps move cholesterol into the mitochondria for further hormone production.
2) Pregnenolone has been shown to have a positive effect on gonadrotropin release, which my help increase LH & FSH release.
3) Dermacrine is more than just topical DHEA/pregnenolone product. The formula was taken one step further with the addition of a Phyto-Aromatase Inhibitor blend. This proprietary blend contains three very unique plant extracts that have been shown to not only safely reduce estrogen, but promote fertility, libido, and erectile function.This Phyto-AI blend consists of resveratrol, 7,8 benzoflavone and chrysin, which are natural polyphenols that have been proven to be effective aromatase inhibitors.
4) This unique combination in Dermacrine effectively limits estrogen production. Ant the benefit is that estrogen is kept in control to avoid nipple sensitivity, fat depositing and testicular shrinkage. The research shows that the ingredients in the Phyto-AI blend help enhance fertility, by eliciting a positive response from the hypothalamus, pituitary, testicular axis (HPTA).
5)  Meaning, the Phyto-AI blend will increase lutienizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone release (FSH) release from the pituitary. As most of you know, these are the hormones sent from the brain that trigger testosterone production from the testis. This effect seems to be caused by the Phyto-AIs antagonistic interaction with the estrogen receptor similar to the action of SERMs such as clomid & nolvadex but without the toxic side-effects.

So has anyone out there heard of it or tried it Huh
