What would it be?

I'd ask Ronnie to list his cycle before and after his first Olympia.  Curious what took him from good to great.

Also Ask Tom prince if the paper bag story is true.

Kids for generations have done this shit, but this generation of fucks are recording it and posting it online like some sort of badge of honor.

hahaha, I was making out with a chick once who had a long tongue like that.  I didn't realize it then while kissing she sticks her tongue in my mouth, I completely gagged and was like WTF!
31  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Botched Execution Bullshit on: July 25, 2014, 06:39:14 AM
So now the hot topic is about Botched Executions and how inmates who were set for execution were tortured because the drugs didn't work as they should.  Lots of crying hearts all over the place.

One problem.  THESE ARE THE SCUM OF THE EARTH.  These people aren't getting executed because they're patron saints.  Most if not all have already killed, raped or did worst to deserve this sentence.  I don't give a fuck if they felt pain when executed.  They should all feel pain and suffering.  Fuck them and the people crying over it.

Israelis aren't denying anything. Of course being allies with the US has its benefits, which include money for military purposes. But unlike other countries who get military and financial aid and squander it, or worse yet, use it to kill its own people, Israel invests in systems to protect its citizens.

Wrong again. They aren't protecting their citizens, they're protecting their interests.  Large US companies have built big offices in Israeli to funnel money.  Tel Aviv has a big HP, Microsoft, HUGE motorrola and many other tech companies.  Motorrola has done most of its development there.  Israel is protecting their money funnel, not their citizens

As much as I disagree with dropping a nuke and committing mass genocide, I do have to say this: The only reason there aren't more casualties on the Israeli side is because the Israeli government actually protects its citizens. If not for the iron dome and the insane army they have, Israel would have been wiped off the map a long time ago. I don't think the "good" or "bad" side is determined by the number of casualties.

Have to laugh here.  It's because of the billions in free military equipement supplied by the US.  Come on man.  So now Jews are denying that the US it their protector.
35  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / If bodybuilding is so gay.... on: July 24, 2014, 12:37:04 PM
Why aren't any of the top IFBB pros today an out of closet homo?  The only one I can think of in the past is Bob Paris and that is decades ago.

Sure beefy has told us stories of ice machines, paper bags, bathroom stalls, but these are guys who also have wives and kids and are hiding it.

Isn't this your fifteenth time leaving getbig?  Each time you come back with a different gimmick name.

In the end these wars benefit one group.  The American Jews.  They'll make billions and billions from running their US military contract companies.  Sheldon Aldelson has spent over $100 million trying to get his republicans in certain senate and congress seats to start a war with Iran.
39  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Bloated Test Messes everywhere on: July 24, 2014, 07:30:40 AM
Mid summer at the beach, pools etc... and fuck they're everywhere. Guys running grams of just test and nothing else.  They are bloated like big bloofy blow up dolls.  Trying to suck in their stomachs yet it still goes about 6 inches past their belt.  Arms flared to the sides, tribal tats and the new Samoan chest tat fad.  Long board shorts to cover the fact they don't do legs.  Faces like moon that would even make Alex23 jealous.  Oil slathered on their freshly shaved body.  The only cut they have is the one they'll try to inflict on themselves when they come off in September.

If it's on facebook it must be true  Roll Eyes.  I love how the Jews give labels to justify their cause.  They kill someone with a gun and call them a terrorist, they kill someone without a gun and call them a human shield.  They can go fuck themselves.

Heading out for a few days next weekend, wonder if any getbiggers will be there.  Let me know.

I'm just glad I don't live in one anymore.  People just don't fucking get it.  They think it's their "freedom" or right to be loud.  I went to pick up a chick from her apartment, it's a nice mid class area and someone a few doors down had music blaring so loud you can feel the bass in your stomach.  What mentality does this person have that in a shared community its okay to play music that loud?

Sheeet! Such nice smooth pale skin.  Would rest my face there for hours

Agree.  Sometimes they've had buy 1 get 1 free and I've cleaned up.  If they ship with OnTrac in Cali I usually get it next day.

Arabs, blacks and Asians will act like pussies alone then all of a sudden act like the tough guy with 10 friends around. You may think you win by being alpha and having him back down and stop slamming but you never know....
48  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Neighbor keeps F'n slamming his front door!! on: July 23, 2014, 04:30:31 PM
lmfao. wow. Its simple

Confront him. Dummy him.

You can ask someone nicely a million times but sometimes it takes a little elbow grease to get the message across.  You just never know though who you're fucking with.  Next day him and 20 of his arab friends will jump the OP and beat him down for making threats or they may listen and stop slamming the door.  I've seen situations like this end up on both ends.

50  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Illegal Dog Meat Trade on: July 23, 2014, 12:31:29 PM
Just sickening this even exists


Authorities stop 130 dogs just before they were about to be loaded onto a boat and smuggled to Laos. The smugglers fled and escaped arrest


Editor's note: John D. Sutter is a columnist for CNN Opinion and creator of CNN's Change the List project. Follow him on Twitter, Facebook or Google+. E-mail him at ctl@cnn.com. The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author.
 
(CNN) -- The dog photos are difficult to view.
 
Of course.
 
They show man's best friend being stuffed into wire cages and trucked, illegally, across borders in Southeast Asia. The destination: restaurants in Vietnam.
 
That thought alone -- that someone would sit in a public restaurant and order dog from a menu -- is likely enough to get most "dog people" to stop reading this column, much less look at the photo essay featured this week by CNN's photo blog.
 
Here in the Untied States, we will spend $58.5 billion on pets this year, according to one industry projection. We pamper dogs with Christmas presents; send them to "doggie daycare"; bring them on planes (more than 2 million pets and animals fly per year); and trot them around show rings, judging the perfection of their pedigree.
 
Eat them?
 


John D. Sutter
 
Unthinkable. Repulsive. Cruel.
 
We don't even consider it.
 
The images featured on the CNN Photo Blog take viewers inside Southeast Asia's illegal dog-meat trade. Shot by Luke Duggleby, who traveled to Thailand, Laos and Vietnam for the story, they're well worth your attention. He documents a trade that is estimated to include hundreds of thousands of dogs per year.
 
The 36-year-old was born in the U.K. and has been living in Thailand for eight years. He told me in an e-mail interview that he considers himself a "dog person" -- "I got an English sheepdog for my fourth birthday and called him Tom" -- and that made it difficult to see the gruesome realities of this trade, which is illegal in Thailand because the exporters aren't paying taxes or getting the dogs vaccinated.
 
"The dogs are illegally smuggled out of Thailand -- that is the illegal part," he said. "They pay no tax or duty. The dogs aren't vaccinated nor do they undergo quarantine. But once they get to Laos they are legally allowed to travel ... on the way to Vietnam, as the officials aren't interested in it. And once in Vietnam no part of it is illegal."
 
In a slaughterhouse, "the dogs were beaten to death in front of me," he said.
 

I fear you'll see Duggleby's photos and think only one thing: How awful that people in Vietnam would eat these loveable, intelligent animals. You'll do what I did, which is to imagine your dog, or your childhood dog, in one of these cages.
 



You won't think about the bigger picture.
 
Which is this: The cruelty of this trade -- the fact that dogs are smashed into cages; suffocated; "skinned alive, strung up and beaten," according to a CNN report -- is what should shock and sadden you. The fact that people are eating dog meat? That shouldn't. Unless you're vegetarian or vegan -- I'm not, by the way, although I do try to eat relatively little meat -- you don't have any moral high ground to stand on. Here in the United States, a place with an unhealthy and ridiculously hipster bacon obsession (witness: bacon donuts, bacon pie, bacon in bloody marys), eating dog could be seen as a reasonable alternative to pig, which is another highly intelligent animal, capable of being a companion to the likes of George Clooney.
 
The United States euthanizes 1.2 million dogs per year, according to the ASPCA.
 
Would eating them be so different?
 
It actually could be seen as helpful.
 
"nlike all farmed meat, which requires the creation and maintenance of animals, dogs are practically begging to be eaten," Jonathan Safran Foer, a vegetarian and novelist, writes in the book "Eating Animals." Euthanizing pets, he says, "amounts to millions of pounds of meat now being thrown away every year. The simple disposal of these euthanized dogs is an enormous ecological and economic problem. It would be demented to yank pets from homes. But eating those strays, those runaways, those not-quite-cute-enough-to-take and not-quite-well-behaved-enough-to-keep dogs would be killing a flock of birds with one stone and eating it, too."
 
But wait: Dogs are companions, right? Pigs (mostly) are not.
 
True, in America.
 







Dogs slaughtered for meat in Vietnam







Dog meat festival in China sparks outrage
In parts of Vietnam, not so much.
 
In India, remember, cows are sacred.
 
And eating pig is off limits for many Muslim and Jewish people.
 
Plus, there's an inherent danger in thinking that "the value of an animal depends on how you treat it," writes Slate's William Saletan.
 
"If you befriend it, it's a friend. If you raise it for food, it's food," he says in a 2002 essay, hilariously titled "Wok the Dog." "This relativism is more dangerous than the absolutism of vegetarians or even of thoughtful carnivores. You can abstain from meat because you believe that the mental capacity of animals is too close to that of humans. You can eat meat because you believe that it isn't. Either way, you're using a fixed standard. But if you refuse to eat only the meat of 'companion' animals -- chewing bacon, for example, while telling Koreans that they can't stew Dalmatians -- you're saying that the morality of killing depends on habit or even whim."
 
Maybe the logic of that makes sense but the thought of eating dog still doesn't sit well. That's the case for me. I went to Vietnam earlier this year to report a story on the illegal trade in pangolin, which is a scale-covered mammal few people care about (except me and maybe this guy) in the way they care about dogs.
 
I saw dog restaurants in Hanoi. Easily could have gone to one.
 
I didn't. And that says less about the dog-eating that's going on in Hanoi than my own conflicted eating habits. Clearly, the illegal dog trade needs to be cleaned up. But so does our thinking about what we eat and when and why. If we're appalled by the dog trade in Southeast Asia, we should be similarly appalled by some of the conditions that exist in factory animal farms in the United States -- including the use of "gestation crates" to confine mother pigs, a practice activist Temple Grandin has criticized, saying it's like "asking a sow to live in an airline seat."
 
If we think dog shouldn't be eaten -- like, ever, regardless of how clean the trade is and how quick the kill -- then maybe we should think about the other animals we eat, and if and why we don't feel the same way about them. Is it because we spend so much time with dogs -- looking into their eyes, talking to them, walking them, picking up their crap -- that we understand that they are living, breathing, feeling beings? Would we feel that way about other animals if we could hang out more? Or would the beak-y, frowny face of the chicken still stop us short of empathy?
 
For his part, Duggleby, the photographer who shot the dog story, told me he was offered dog meat on the assignment but couldn't eat it.
 
"When I was photographing inside a dog meat restaurant -- claiming to be a chef studying Vietnamese food -- I was offered to try it," he said. "It probably looked very odd for a 'chef' to say no but I turned it down. I just couldn't bring myself to try it."
 
I likely would have done the same thing.
 
Exactly why? That's a harder question.
 
And it's the one all of us should further examine
