The airline should be held accountable , flying through a dangerous area to make a buck lol.

Exactly! Sad

It feels strange having known someone who died on this plane. Makes me think about how none of us knows when our time will be up or when it will be the last time you see someone...Ironically he was a pilot by Profession, was just on his way back from a work in the Netherlands to meet his wife. I can't fathom how his wife, two sons and family must be feeling right now Cry
 
Meanwhile the Airline and Politicians scramble to cover their own arses  Roll Eyes

Just watched this doc on the Lance Armstrong story and the PED's used in cycling last night - highly recommended -  Applies to bodybuilding and all sports.
No big news to most us but to the general gullible population I can imagine this is like they've just been told father Christmas isn't real.

Matt Porter coached you yeah? I mind him posting this pic on facebook saying he had you on high carbs by mistake for a week and it made you look even better.

Yeah, at 2 weeks out I though Matt (via e mail) meant for me to stay on my "high day" macros for 7 days: MACRO TOTALS:  288p - 418c - 24f - It turned out to not really be a big a problem though as I was already ahead of schedule and 100% shredded already so just filled out a few kg's of glycogen/water, To get my weight down a week out Matt dropped me to  TOTALS: 421 55 29 ..had me do THREE (3) TWENTY (20) MINUTE INTERVAL SESSIONS spaced apart each day (INTENSE)  for (Sun, Mon, tues)
stopping Wednesday before the show. A case of mistaken communication, but in my case actually worked out for the best  Cool

Conventional Last week hit and miss voodoo – “Depleting carbs, then overload, and finally stop drinking to "dry out" Unless your goal is to look your worst on contest day. i.e. small, flat, and saggy with less muscle separation and no vascularity or ability to get a muscle pump then do that…But, don’t worry; the day after the show you’ll look amazing and want to give it another shot!  Cheesy

when Contest dieting :

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day

You have to eat every 2 to 3 hours otherwise you'll lose muscle

you have to cut out bread, diary and fruit

You have to cut out creatine and all shakes and ONLY eat whole food

You have to eat "clean"

You have to cut out coffee/caffiene

You have to cut down sodium

prolonged Keto dieting without weekly carb refeeds

11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Is Oscar Pistorius Going Down? on: July 01, 2014, 07:09:59 AM
Good analysis thanks for sharing. I always found the whole scenario incomprehensible.

Yeah, There is no way on this green Earth he is innocent. It is not in dispute that ALL he heard to make him panic was a noise from the bathroom. At no stage did he have any other grounds to believe he was in any form of danger, life threatening or otherwise. In reaction to that sound, he picked up a firearm and shot FOUR times through a closed door at a person he could not identify. Even if the person on the other side WAS a burglar, by that stage he or she was so scared that they had pad locked themselves in the toilet and made no attempt to threaten Oscar in any manner. On that basis, he had no grounds to claim he was acting in self defence, mistakenly or otherwise. Hence he is at the very least guilty of culpable homicide, more likely 3rd degree murder. Imagine the chaos that would result for society if he were found innocent – every paranoid firearm owner would suddenly have a free license to start shooting on the flimsiest of excuses.
12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Is Oscar Pistorius Going Down? on: July 01, 2014, 06:13:54 AM
According to his testimony: Anyone who still believes Oscar Pistorius (OP) is innocent has to believe that the following scenario is credible:

1. Reeva happily goes to bed, having packed all her clothes neatly away in her bag, including her underwear and the top she was wearing, while leaving her jeans inside-out at the bottom of the bed.

2. OP wakes in the night and immediately puts his hands over his face. He takes them off long enough to glance over and notice Reeva’s legs under the duvet. He then puts his hands back over his face to get out of bed – pushing aside a duvet that is not actually on him.

3. He walks around to Reeva’s side of the bed, without either looking at her or telling her what he’s doing. She doesn’t ask, either.

4. Once his back is completely turned, Reeva silently scrambles across to his side of the bed and walks totally noiselessly and in the pitch black to the toilet.

5. Never once facing the bed, OP brings both fans in and positions them at the end of the bed. How he did that with his back to the bed the entire time, I am unable to fathom. He either stood with his back to the bed, and put the fans in front of him and then walked around them, or positioned them with his arms behind him.

6. In spite of the pitch-black room, he notices jeans on the floor. He is bothered by a small LED light enough to want to cover them with said jeans – but not bothered by the lit-up LED display, the light on the TV or the lights on the light switches.

7. He hears a terrifying sound from the bathroom and is frozen with fear. At no point does it cross his mind that it may have been the person sharing the bedroom and bathroom with him making the noise – nope, he’s so convinced it can’t be her, he doesn’t even bother to turn his head and glance in her direction.

8. He doesn’t seek to clarify what he’s heard with his awake girlfriend who is feet away from him. He doesn’t wonder if she heard it too and is scared.

9. He feels particularly vulnerable because he’s on his stumps, but doesn’t take a few seconds to put on the legs that are, actually, right next to him.

10. He stops being frozen with fear and heads for his gun, making his way around the fans that he has just positioned in front of the bed. He holds into the bed for balance, and says not-a-word to the person who is in it regarding the fact that he believes that there are intruders in the next room and he needs to arm himself.

11. He reaches under the bed for the gun, careful not to glance across at the person he believes is in it.

12. He stands up, faces the passage and whispers/speaks quietly to Reeva, telling her to get down and call the police without actually telling her why. He is not surprised that she doesn’t ask or that she doesn’t bother to get out of bed and get down as instructed.

13. He makes his way in terror to the bathroom – ignoring the door that he and Reeva could have escaped through and the panic alarm that would have brought immediate help.

14. He’s so desperate to put himself between the intruders and Reeva that he doesn’t actually check where Reeva is.

15. He is too scared to put the light on but not too scared to start screaming as soon as he starts walking down the passage.

16. He is walking slowly and quietly down the passage, screaming.

17. Reeva hears the screaming but is too scared of the intruder to respond and give away her position, so she slams the door.

18. OP screams at Reeva to call the police. She fails to do this even though she has her phone with her.

19. OP gets to the bathroom doorway, and stops screaming so that the intruders won’t know where he is.

20.When he sees that there’s no one in the bathroom, he starts screaming again.

21. Reeva stands facing the door, making no effort to speak to her screaming boyfriend – who is now standing right outside the toilet door. She doesn’t wonder if he wants to come into the toilet and hide with her; she selfishly hides, silently locking the door and says nothing.

22. Somehow she steps backwards to knock the magazine rack on the other side of the toilet before immediately stepping forward again to the position she was in when she was shot.

23. OP has many thoughts running though his head – a story about a neighbour being tied up in his house, the crime rate in SA, the builder leaving a ladder outside his house, the folly of shooting a warning shot into the shower in case it ricochets and hits him, but a noise from the toilet has all thoughts disappearing from his mind like a fart in the wind and he shoots once, moves position and shoots three more times without actually meaning to….all the while screaming.

24. He stands screaming for a bit, then walks backwards out of the bathroom screaming.

25. He gets to the bedroom, screaming, and is a trifle surprised to see that Reeva is not sitting in bed after hearing four gunshots from the en suite bathroom.

26. He heads across the bed backwards, keeping his eyes on the passage….she’s not there. He walks along the gap between the bed and the curtains; she’s not there. She’s not behind the curtains either.

27. Gasp. Was that Reeva in the toilet? He doesn’t even bother checking to see whether she’s run out of the bedroom – that would be a ridiculous thing to do given that the shooting was in the bathroom, so he sees no sense in even checking (yes, he actually said that).

28. He runs with his gun back to the bathroom and tries to pull open the door – he’s still scared it may be an intruder, and hopeful it’s not Reeva, but he doesn’t bother checking to see if there’s a ladder outside the window.

29. He runs back to the bedroom, parts the curtains and shouts for help from the balcony….holding a cocked gun in his hand because he’s still scared.

30. He puts down his gun, sits on the bed, looks for his socks, puts on his legs then picks up his gun again to run to the bathroom – all in the pitch black because he tells us he never opened the curtains or put on the light.

31. Kicking the door doesn’t work, so he runs back for his bat. He then runs back to the bathroom with a cocked gun in one hand and a cricket bat in the other.
* Oh, I almost forgot – throughout all of this he is screaming like a woman, except when he goes onto the balcony to shout for help in a man’s voice.
All of the above takes him 15 minutes

32. Back in the bathroom, he puts down the gun and hits the door three times with enough ferocity that six people think they are gunshots. Four of those people had slept through the real gunshots 15 minutes earlier – seemingly not bothered by a sound 1000 times louder than the sound that they are hearing now.

33. Once he breaks down the door and sees Reeva bloody and not breathing, he is as silent as a monk. No more screaming – he is too “sad” to scream anymore.

34. In spite of screaming at Reeva to call the police three times, it doesn’t occur to him to do the same himself now.

35. He sits sobbing over her, then pulls her against him, feeling her blood run on to him – although it only manages to stain his shorts and forearms.

36. He is so distraught by Reeva’s condition, that getting medical help for her is not his first thought….calling a friend is.

37. He psychically knows that Netcare will tell him to get Reeva to hospital himself so he calls Stander to help him lift her so he can do this.

38. He then calls Netcare to be given the worst medical advice of all time – to take a woman who has been shot three times, once in the head, to hospital himself.

39. He calls Security for help, then sobs down the phone to them. When they call him back, he forgets to ask for help and tells them he is fine.

40. He runs downstairs, careful to switch off the alarm first and opens the door, crying.

41. Coming back upstairs he smashes his way through the bedroom double-doors before simply unlatching them.

42. He carries Reeva through the bedroom, leaving a dissected line of blood that is half on carpet and half on the duvet on the bed – which the police can handily line up later making it look like the duvet was on the floor all along and that OP is one enormous great big fat liar.

I could go on...

I am starting to think that anyone who truly believes this man is innocent is slightly divorced from reality
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Man set on fire while trying to steal copper wire (video) on: June 27, 2014, 08:03:47 AM
Theiving copper has got to be an urban myth. The dollar to weight ratio is so low that you'd need a big truck to make a haul worthwhile, and stealthy removal would be so labor intensive (ba dum) that, even if you excluded the tools and transport costs, you'd make more flipping burgers.  I could see contractors grabbing what's easily accessed in the course of normal demolition.  Stealing installed copper for profit, no way.  I'm sure it's happened on the basis of the myth, which seems popular ever since that Sopranos episode, but I imagine those who gave it a shot without doing the math were left disappointed.  

I know nothing of this story but am guessing he was trying to get free power, not free copper.

Not an urban myth in South Africa  Sad  holding thumbs more of these annoying fuckers fry themselves..

"It was a dare," fire department squad leader Markus Mozer told NBC News. "The young man had tried to pose for an unusual photo and climbed into the artwork."

 The fire department in the southern German university city of Tuebingen extracted a 20-year old American exchange student after he got trapped inside a giant vagina sculpture.

The concept of hardcore "natural bodybuilding" today is virtually an oxymoron and seriously flawed. In the case of hardcore competitive bodybuilding, however, it is difficult to argue that anything about the sport is natural.

It is, almost by definition, unnatural. While the safety risks of chemical enhancement rampant at today's elite level is regrettable, the line between hardcore natural and unnatural bodybuilders is quite fuzzy.
