1  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Jim Carrey: "Why You Shouldn't Fear Failure" on: Today at 02:05:01 PM
Of course he is claiming to be successful, if he was a failure, he sure as hell wouldn't be advocating risking failure.  Many people do what they love to do and don't make millions,but you don't see these people giving lectures about how to achieve such a status.  Only someone with a massive ego would do such a thing.  For someone who is doing what he loves, he sure has suffered his fair share of depression, battling it his whole life.

Carrey was invited to speak at a college graduation. It's safe to say the folk who invited him view him as a success. Who do you expect them to stick up there, the local wino?

From the looks of it. Carrey hardly came from a "privileged" background.

And there are a number of people, not necessarily millionaires, who speak to young people about success in life.

But, if it makes YOU feel better that nearly everyone with more money/fame/prestige/whatever-you-value-most-in-life just got lucky, knock yourself out. But, you may find yourself looking a bit green after while.

mcway you're going the right way for a smacked bottom

For telling the truth? As awesome as Dillett was in his own right, he repeatedly got whipped by a guy who didn't even sniff 200 lb (Labrada).

A guy who can't beat the "Flea" can suddenly handle "the Gift"? PLEASE!!

wow... 3.3 Heaths wide!!  Shocked

Dillett and Ruhl are the only ones I can think of reaching the 3.0+ Heaths wide!! maybe Joel stubbs too.

Yet, at last count, Heath has more Sandows and more pro wins overall than Dillett, Ruhl, and Stubbs....COMBINED!!

Better than Philsulin Heath.


WoooSHHHHHHHH

Hardly!! Dillett, in his prime, couldn't beat Labrada who was on his way to retiring, much less take on Heath now.

Personally, I couldn't think of anything worse than to be rich and famous and a puppet to even more rich and famous people.  Just because you have more wealth than others doesn't mean you are successful.  This is the mistake people like Jim Carrey make, pretending he is successful,   while those who haven't made a fortune are failures.  In my eyes, the majority of these types of people are failures, they have sold out and live disingenuously.  But I understand it's important for the average punter who is deeply unsatisfied with his life and feeds into the Cultural relativism of the day to have something to aspire to even if only subconsciously they know they will never achieve it regardless of how hard they work or how much failure they risk.

For every Jim Carrey there are countless others treading the same path with as much talent and working just as hard and risking failure who never make it.  Good fortune is the secret, but fame and wealth gets to people and their egos start telling them how great they are and how they are more deserving etc etc.   For most people they can't stand the thought that success and failure are down to cosmic randomness with no apparent logic guiding the process.  They prefer to believe they control their destinies regardless of how much evidence their is to the contrary.

If you actually believe ridiculous new age cliches like " luck equals preparation plus opportunity." you have no concept of what luck actually is. But if believing in ridiculous slogans helps you get through the day, then so be it.

Cosmic randomness is your new age excuse for relative failure in your life or that off someone else.

And, you make the grave mistake of following the liberal pap that simply working hard should equal success. You can work hard, doing things wrong; or you can work hard, succeed initially, but screw up later, and negate their previous success.

It sounds to me as if you're using "cosmic randomness" as an excuse to fail and justification for envious people to stew in covetousness.

Carrey isn't claiming he's successful, simply because he's rich. He's doing what he loves to do; the fact he makes millions doing such makes it sweeter. The same can be said of the guy to whom I'm listening on radio right now, who has the number one talk show on the airwaves.

People in privileged positions always believe they did something special to earn such good fortune. It makes them feel better to think they are smarter, harder working, better looking etc etc. It would be way too much of a blow to their ego to acknowledge in the Universal lottery of organised chaos they just got lucky.

The flip side is people who are envious of those in privileged positions like to think that the objects of their disdain just got lucky. It soothes their ego and excuses their relative lack of accomplishment.

Or as they say, luck equals preparation plus opportunity.
7  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 2014 Olympia - Dexter Jackson Top Five! on: Today at 07:50:34 AM
True but what I'm saying is Dex already won the Olympia and will most likely never win it again. So why not drop some weight and win it in a diff/Division and be the first(I believe)to do this...After winning the Olympia, anything other than winning or at worst runner up will be looked at in history as a failure...

I beg to differ. As long as he can hang in the elite class, that's where he should compete. Obviously, Dex can do that, as he is still in the top 5 at the O and he won the Arnold last year. The 212s are loaded with guys he's clobbered or can easily clobber, anyway.

Plus, Dex wouldn't be the first to win the lighter class and the actual Olympia outright. That would be Franco Columbu, who won the under-200-lb class several times. In 1976, he did it again and bested over-200-lb class winner, Ken Waller, to win the overall Mr. Olympia title.

Furthermore, Frank Zane has done that three times, winning his class and beating the over-200-lb winners (Mentzer and Robinson, twice) for the whole ball of wax.

From average juicers to usa competitors..no one will ever look like shawn ray, dennis newman, bob paris..etc etc...everyone's bodies in todays time look so un proportional,  no one has a small waist..no one tries to develop a thick muscular chest..no1 has any sort of discipline for creating simmetry...who wouldnt want to look like shawn ray or dennis newman..you would bang every girl and demand so much respect..

Does the ifbb have this kind of influence in the regression of exercise training..based on their current love for mass..im certain everyone in the 80s wanted to join the Arnold club

Ummmm.....NO! You wouldn't bang every girl and demand so much respect. Back in high school, I'd be reading FLEX or Muscle & Fitness and someone would see pics of guys like Ray or Paris and it's the usual "Eww!!! That's gross!!" or "He's too big! That's nasty!"

It's pretty much the same now as it was 25 years ago.
9  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: why cant anybody anymore in todays times develop an 80s body on: July 23, 2014, 01:03:36 PM
because we got concerned with the scale weight.

how many guys were under 220 in the 80's? MOST of them.

how many guys focused more on chest, abs, and arms before dorian? most of them.

we figured out that we had to force feed ourselves to get as heavy as possible.. and if you wanted that scale weight to increase, you had to put muscle on the largest areas, meaning legs and back. which meant focusing more on movements that brought into play more muscles everywhere.

who had a big, wide, thick back back in the 80's who didn't also have a bigger than average waist?

who had big, dense, thick legs back in the 80's who didn't also have a thicker torso?

I can't think of anybody.

I can.

Because at almost 50 years old adding weight to his body is basically suicide. It's not like he' going to put on weight and win the thing. So dropping weight would be good for his overall health. Plus whats wrong with trying to win the thing in a different class? Has anyone ever won both titles before? That would be more impressive than placing 5th thru 8th...

Winning the 212 is hardly on par with placing top 5 at the actual Olympia. The one guy who tried (David Henry, when it was the 202 class) barely made the top 15.

As for Dex winning the Olympia again, the circumstances would have to be similar to 2008: He's on; the champ is off; and another guy is out, perhaps due to injury.

You are wrong he can still bring up his legs if starts doing some hardcore squats and lunges.

You can get more than enough protein from 3 meals daily for your bodybuilding needs, dont be a brainwashed lunkhead and believe everything the supplement and magazine companies tell you, you do know that they are trying to make money right.

You do know I actually said "TWO SMALL CHICKEN BREASTS or less than two scoops of protein powder"?

Of course, supplement companies try to make money, genius. It's part of the job. Guess what! People who sell food (I.e. Chicken) try to make money also.

My point was and is, if you can get your protein from just 3 meals, then just do it and quit bleating about those EEEEEEVVVVIIIILLLLL supplement companies and their wares.

The guy is almost 50 and he now wants to come in heavier? Major mistake. The guy should be thinking about retiring and bringing his bodyweight down to 180 pounds and maybe live to see 55...Or at the very least bring his bodyweight down and compete at the 212 div...
.

Why would a FORMER MR. OLYMPIA who is still top 5 material go to the 212 class?

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfpyLwaGuc4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfpyLwaGuc4</a>

It appears CT has had enough of Leroy's swipes at him. The funny thing is that Leroy asked why CT didn't have 21" arms 20 years ago. That leads me to believe that he doesn't know CT was once a 300+ lb powerlifter.

Nor has Leroy seen CT's videos from the 90s.

As easy it is to make it's even easier not to.

To go from 100 grams of protein per day to 130 grams or from 130 to 160 or from 160 to 190 or from 190 to 220 or from 220 to 250 grams...when is enough enough?

Where is the proof? Nowhere...meanwhile people who consume large amounts might get all kinds of illness and side effects as well as its costing them money...

How is it you cant get enough protein from 3 meals per day?

Where are these legions of folks, dropping like flies or filling ERs because of too many protein shakes?

If you were getting enough protein from just 3 meals a day, you wouldn't be bellyaching about it now.

To go from 130 to 160 grams of protein? That's all of TWO small chicken breasts (or one big one), or....less that two scoops of protein powder. Boy, what a chore that is.

When is enough enough? When you actually get bigger and stronger and don't have to blubber about this stuff anymore.

She also claimed that even with a Princeton and Harvard education she didn't know what healthy food was. 

But she or anyone isn't forcing kids to eat certain foods at school.  Until that happens, nothing to see here.

The operative word is 'Until'.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Declares War On Chic-Fil-A on: July 21, 2014, 12:35:25 PM
Among other issues this points out how indulged many if on most young people are today. If I'd thrown food in the trash simply because I didn't like it, there would have been consequences. While the rule of thumb was that I had to taste what was served. If I didn't like it. I didn't have to eat it all but there would be nothing to replace what I didn't eat. Another thing, portions weren't so ginormous that there was enough to feed an army on my plate. This all had nothing to do with economics, since my parents were fairly well off. It was just how things were done at that time.

The food served at school was not the most appetizing and there was often not much selection. There certainly wasn't multiple selections like there are today. Pizza was unheard of. For all of my elementary school years, my mom packed my lunch because she thought it healthier than the food served at school. One funny thing I remember about high school was kids dipping the tip of their straw in the glue like brown gravy served over the mainstay instant mashed potatoes and then blow it as hard as they could off the straw towards the very high cafeteria ceiling. By the end of the year, there was an abundance of stalactite like straw papers hanging from the ceiling. The custodial staff probably cursed us come summer, when they'd have to clean them off ceiling.

So, in keeping with today's indulgent child rearing style, we should by all means only serve young people the food they like, disregarding good nutrition and their health in favor of keeping them happy. Michelle Obama, what are you thinking? Let the kids eat the Chic-Fil-A lunches they so love! Their parents don't seem concerned that they might become obese or get type II diabetes, so what makes you believe you have the right to intervene by supporting the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act passed by Congress in 2010?

Michelle Obama needs to worry about her own kids and let me raise mine. I've forgotten more about nutrition than she'll ever know.

Kids aren't getting fat because of Chic-Fil-A, contrary to your rather strange claim. And you act as if the kids were being served nothing but Pop Tarts and Doritos all day long. That was hardly the case. She arrogantly thinks that, because she was too stupid to know what to feed her kids (despite her Ivy league 'education'), everyone else must be as daft as she is, in that venue.

How hard is it to shake some powder in a bottle of water and drink it? I don't think it's necessary but not much of a hassle either. I'm blessed with a super fast metabolism and a good drug source so I eat whatever I want but I still shoot for 200 grams protein

Indeed! A post workout shake takes all of 60 seconds to make and consume?

That's just idiotic.

You can't pull a bait and switch, if you expect people to pay money to see your shows going forward.

That was the most anticipated match on the card, and the customers didn't get it

Fine print on all PPVs: "Card Subject to Change"

Plus, I think Rollins messed up his knee last week on RAW, after getting knocked over the top rope or off the ring apron. So, rather than just can the match, they kept having Ambrose jump Rollins throughout the night.

Obama's brother lives in squalor in a Kenyan shack.  Roll Eyes

With that said, I don't have an issue with this program on its face. BUT, the whole reducing suspension thing? That could be a problem. If it's about preventing these boys from acting up, that's fine. But, if it means slaps on the wrists for hoodlums who should get booted, I have a major problem with that.

It's much the same with honors classes. If the black and Latino kids deserve to be in a Honors classes, get them in there (hopefully, they won't get picked on and bullied by their peers as 'acting white').

Don't just stick them there merely for some 'diversity' crap. And don't can the honors program (as one NJ school did, just because there were too many white kids for the PC crowd's liking).

Yes apparently many parents are either too stupid or just don't give a flying fuck about their children's diet. If that were not the case, why is the incidence of childhood type II diabetes and obesity on the increase? Until you go to school and personally see what your kids (assuming you even have kids) are being fed, you really don't have a clue what you are talking about.

The kids are THROWING THE FOOD in the trash, costing millions of dollars. So, Michelle Obama's schtick isn't working.

Of course, Cena won. Again, it sets up Cena and Lesnar for SummerSlam.
