Ouch. The irony. This should be "you first need to understand sentences written in English." There, professor, fixed it for ya.  Grin

Have to admit that it is indeed ironic--a lot more ironic than you think . . . it's a good thing you don't know what my "occupation" is  Grin

You fixed the sentence so you obviously understood the sentence.  Thats irony.


my sentence is understandable, but the way i structured it technically completely alters its meaning.  Dr. chimps knows his sentence structure, although a quick glance at his "recent posts" reveals that he has a tendency to invent words . . . "relatavistic" "regimine" Tongue

sure you do champ.

My bad, I thought you needed encouragement to express yourself, but apparently you need to learn to understand sentences written in English first

Do any of you live in the real world, or are you all a bunch a community college kids?

That is totally silly. Property canot keep going up indefinitely. Anyone worth their sense can tell you that California real estate is tremendously over priced. If Chic bought now he woul be buying at the top of the market. He's doing the smart thing by renting, saving his cash, and waiting for a house to get to realistic price levels.

Lesson for the day: Before the stock market crashed around the Great Depression, Joseph P Kennedy made it through with most of his money. When people asked how he escaped, he said he went to get his shoes shined and the shoe shine boy was offering stock tips. At that point he realized that if so many speculators were in the market, that stocks had to be way too overvalued. He sold his stocks and took his money out.

If every idiot is on TV talking about getting rich with real estate, the market is just too over hyped. I have degrees in both Real Estate and Finance but simple economics can tell you the same. The average family in Cali makes like 55k, so who is going to buy your 600K house? If prices went like this, our kids would have to buy houses for a Billion dollars....


Chic can soon buy a house at a song from all the idiots who fail to make their payment on the $350,000 on a $45,000 salary...

there's a difference between speculating in stocks (by definition, a short-term project) and investing in a home (a long-term project).  Sure, it might be the top of an overheated market, and it might crash . . . but you're probably going to hold on to it for the next 20-30 years, and the value will definitely appreciate over the long haul.  You will get a return on land, as they're not making any more of it.

Who's to say that the bond and stock markets aren't overheated just now . . . I personally don't think the latter is, but what do I know?

EDIT: prices are not going to get back to "realistic" levels unless a whole slew of industries collapse which doesn't seem likely at the present moment. they might correct a little bit as demand goes down, but a crash . . .

I agree that you shouldn't buy more house than you can afford, but you should still buy as much as you can.

No...its an apartment.  But rent is extremely high...as is the norm for los angeles.  Buying a condo or house is gonna put you back atleast $500k for a small shitty space.  Its not worth it.

For those of you who do not live here....a studio apt (400 sq ft room) in Playa del Rey (where we live) can run you about $1200 a month.  This is a one bedroom...about 1800 sq ft. The show has only filmed in the lr and kitchen.

keep in mind..we are 2 blks from the beach, and live in a upscale gated community with all the amenities.  You get what you pay for around here.  And yes...I have "nested" the bachelor pad...but Bob and I have similar tastes so its all good. 

Bob's money is nobody's business...he makes good money, let that be that.  He does talk big, but has never lied about what he makes or what he ownes.  He has a % of his income put into ira's, business investments, stocks, and a sizable savings acct.    He is at a point now where he can pay for whatever he wants without financing...including a 70's model muscle car for me  Kiss.  He is working on getting his retirement taken care of so he is not left personal training until he is 60. 


Well said. Simple and to the point and acknowledges that bob "does talk big" Wink

Just to play devil's advocate for a moment, wtf does a single guy want to do with a house? 

build equity?

pride of ownership?

houses don't usually come with chicks . . .
5409  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: CHICK'S APARTMENT ON THE FIT SHOW on: March 23, 2006, 11:25:52 AM

He claims to make 300k yet he doesn't even own a house.


What a bullshitter.  Roll Eyes

he has expensive habits? tastes?

he's going to find himself a sugar mama once he gets in shape?

besides he has plenty of time left to start building equity . . . saving for retirement is overrated when you live in the land of the eternally young.

Good review. About the joints . . . maybe deca, and not just aspirin . . . and the genes that allowed him to become a champion weightlifter in a matter of months.
5411  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Recent Gary Strydom picture!! on: March 22, 2006, 11:40:00 PM
well, even if he wasn't born in 1930 (or 38), he was probably born pretty soon after.  So, if he wasn't doing pro shos at 62, he was doing them in his mid fifties and holding his own . . . which is pretty amazing. oliva had a comeback too, come to think of it.

I think people underestimate what it means to be born with amazing genetics.  all the drugs in the world aren't going to turn me into Kobe Bryant or Barry Bonds . . . and all the supplements in the world aren't going to turn me into someone like Beckles.
5412  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Recent Gary Strydom picture!! on: March 22, 2006, 11:31:17 PM
maybe these guys see what ronnie can look like at 42 and it inspires them.

maybe it's in the genes. Albert beckles and so forth. Serge Nubret also looked pretty insane a few years ago.
5413  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Recent Gary Strydom picture!! on: March 22, 2006, 11:15:48 PM
  And look how skeletal he looks in the face. 

i hope that remark is not prophetic. how old is the guy anyway?
5414  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Recent Gary Strydom picture!! on: March 22, 2006, 11:11:33 PM
What's with all of these old-timers coming back? They all look great though.

second careers didn't really go anywhere?

better drugs?

Fountain of youth in Cali?
5415  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Recent Gary Strydom picture!! on: March 22, 2006, 11:01:28 PM
LOL!!  For a second I thought you photoshopped that.  I just stole the pic from Shawn's site directly.

Well, now at least we know his obliques are in.   Grin

Guess it made someone feel all funny inside to see so much of Strydom and so they "fixed" him Grin
5416  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Recent Gary Strydom picture!! on: March 22, 2006, 10:54:18 PM
I think the FCC got to Matt C's pic, or else it made one of the Ironagers blush and so he had to "fix" it.

here's the pic in one of its previous phases.
5417  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: just how big was Ronnie naturally??? on: March 22, 2006, 10:45:25 PM
He says the bloodwork and EKG scans always come back to him with a clean bill of health.  He said he was healthier than his doctor according to scans.  The test results are always good and he gets tests done every three months.  Something every pro should do.

That having been said, how healthy is Ronnie, DIVISION?

Speak on this.

He's looking in his crystal ball (yeah, the same one that allows him to see into the hearts and minds and psyches of various Getbig members), but when he's done, he'll answer your questions, persevering one.

The vastus has been creeping upwards since.

That's poetry. the slow creep of the vastus=metaphor for the passage of time, onset of death?

The True Adonis looks like Mike Katz, sans the muscles.


Speak on this Adonis



ADD

Mike Katz=Tony Soprano

Adonis=Anthony, Jr.

Sometimes the good genes dry up. Generational decline. declension. whatever. the blood grows thinner.

Why post pictures of people just to make fun of them? 

you must have a kind heart.

these people dressed and posed for the pictures b/c they think they look good and want to show off.  It's their exhibitionist impulse, with its implications of I'm-better-than-the-average-Jane-who-is-not-having-her-pic-taken that leads to this sort of reaction . . . 

If they were minding their own business and dressed in a dignified manner, none of their pics would have wound up here.
5421  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Ronnie injuries rumour on: March 22, 2006, 01:53:25 PM
Are you guy's blind?  The injuries are nothing new. 
The left lat has been torn since at least 2003.  It was more noticable the last two years, because for some reason, he can't seem to rotate that scapula as much in the rear lat. 

His left quad has been torn above the knee for years too.  Hasn't effected him, as it's still the leg he puts forward on the ab and thigh. 

His left tri was obviously injured on some level last year, and doesn't seem to be getting a whole lot better.  But, his left tri has been relatively weak his whole career. 

You turds spend day and night on here picking apart every bodybuilder, and NO ONE has noticed any of these over the last few YEARS? 

Doison,

You speak the truth.  Many have eyes, but can they really see?

In a world of blind men, the one-eyed man is king.
