Saw Padilla a couple of years ago. He looked unbelievable for his age.  2014 or so is like 30 years past early 80s.  This man KEPT his physique.

look at how his quads burst through those sweat pants (no homo).

One tip I got indirectly from Kai. He buys gym tights in the girls department. That's the only place any more you can get the real tight ones that show legs (like the old spandex gear in the 90s) in most sports stores.  He must have to go to the big girls' department. Surprised he can find 'em big enough.

However, he does seem to be enjoying the attention of the schmoe with the camera. There's one person anyway he could get a blow job from if he wants it.

How old is Passariello?  If he's 70 or more, not bad at all.  If he's closer to 60, he definitely should not have entered a pro show in this condition.

Got to say I am somewhat sad.  I never met this guy but he seemed to have a weird kind of positive outlook.  He followed his passion even though his passion did him in.  This guy wore his heart on his sleeve.  He really craved recognition and he actually got the recognition he wanted from this very board.  I remember him marveling online about the hits and comments he was still getting from this board when he openly talked about his medical challenges.  Even the haters he counted among those who gave a shit.  I get the feeling his family will really miss him.  One less crazy but good-hearted bodybuilder for getbiggers to kick around.

So Reagan was a fraud and a lying bastard?

Let me rethink and restate this.  No, you are right: Reagan generally said what he meant and meant what he said.  That was one reason he was a strong president.  In 1980, there was still the recollection of the radical protesters, e.g., the university protestors which Reagan felt so negatively about in the student community, and Harvey Milk, Stonewall, etc. in the gay community.  So Reagan probably felt negatively toward the more forceful advocates of gay rights.  What I was meaning to say was that I don't believe Reagan was personally homophobic at all, he had friends, he had been around it in his show business career, and he was familiar and comfortable.  And I still say he was more likely to make a statement like the above in the context of a primary campaign rather than in general election.

Oh what pandering on the part of politicians!  Ronald and Nancy Reagan had lots of homosexual friends/acquaintances in CA.  He did not really feel this way.  The political primary system that we have causes this kind of pandering.  I will bet any money he made this statement during primaries, not during general election campaign.

I totally was pushing for staying off all medications.If you read carefully I said to stay off all medications if possible.first thing I said is" I wouldn't get started on any medications"
SSRI's are addictive as well not as addictive as benzos but a patient still must be tapered off of them. You are the first person I know who says SSRI's work great. It is best to not get started on any medication and I def emphasized that in my post. There is really know reason to start on medications. I honestly wish I didn't try any medications myself but I will say the SSRI's treated me way worse then benzos and don't try to say SSRI's are not addictive not as bad as benzos but yes addictive and tapering is needed to get off them.

 I think xanax is the best drug ever made and it blows away any SSRI ever made. You can use it long term. why not?It all really comes down to what kind of problems you are having.getting a mental health evaluation is your best bet then they can tell you if you need a SSRI or a Benzo or maybe both.
Alex23 you probably started this thread because you are still sad your boyfriend nasser died.

Xanax is a good drug, I agree, however, I think it's best not to use it day-in-day out, because my experience is that it is addictive.  I had a spell at work a few years ago where my anxiety was so high that I felt like I was having heart symptoms at work (heart was fine, I was just whacked out with anxiety).  Xanax calmed me down and saved me.  I took a mild dose every morning for like 6 to 8 months.  I don't regret doing this; however, coming off it was an ugly withdrawal for me.  My body went way out of control when I stopped, and I could never figure out what was withdrawal versus what was my underlying pathology.  Little by little I got back to normal, but I avoid Xanax like the plague now, other than a once in a while on a one time basis if I have a major anxiety causing event.  I have never taken the SSRIs but my read on them is that they are built for day-in-day out use without being addictive (except you have to pyramid up and down at beginning and end kind of like with AAS).

But, even though I am into spirituality more than anything as best cure, I would recommend SSRIs more than any other drug for persons suffering from serious depression.  Get with the right doctor (get psychiatry referral from primary care doctor), and go with drugs like Paxil, Lexapro, etc. before barbituates or other type medications which are addictive.

In general, this thread is bringing out better instincts, so here goes with my issue.  I don't suffer from down-low type depression but I do experience ENVY (one of the deadly sins I believe).  Does anybody else have this issue?  For example, even though I know many of the guys have issues of their own, I often find myself in a state of envy toward pro bodybuilders and national competitors.  I envy their huge size, their confidence, their cockiness, their ability to draw the opposite sex.  This goes beyond admiration.  Mostly it's a deep visceral envy of their sheer size.  This becomes a burden, maybe depression at some level, and seems spiritually shallow given the big picture of all the challenges human beings face.  I respond through my own bodybuilding, entering competitions, going to shows, viewing videos online and catching up on bodybuilding news/gossip.  I can pull away from all this and delve into other aspects of my life a lot of the time, but I always come back.  What I guess I am saying is that bodybuilding satisfies me at some levels, but at other levels it fails to do so.

There are two quotes, none from me.

I am practicing sexual abstinence though, or at least trying to, and I've given up on porn several months ago. I can attest to a lot of positive changes since I started this endeavour. Concentration and patience is way better today. One big reason as to why I'm doing this is that I feel more laidback at work, before I was pissed off all the time.

Withdrawals (yes, they're real...) were awful though. Felt like crap and wanted to sleep all day.

This may seem very silly when reading about it but a lot of people are experience the same things as I've mentioned previously - and more and more scientific studies are being performed on the subject. We haven't had high speed internet porn and tabbed browsing for too many years so we're not that aware of the risks...

Be careful about extremes, for example, total abstinence can lead to depression in many people.  Sexual release is healing.  But I do agree that internet porn can mess with dopamine.  Even being excessively wired into a site like getbig (or obsessively checking/updating Facebook or tweeting continuously), these things can mess with our wiring in a way that ends up increasing the risk of anxiety and depression.

well..that was uncomfortable after 23 seconds  Tongue

Uncomfortable like in hot and bothered or uncomfortable like in the "ick factor"?  Big difference.

Thank God for regional variation in US.  I love the South and I love South Boston too (every little breeze seems to whisper Louise).  Hope we don't all mush together into one diluted identity too soon.

May help influence the judges

its long been rumored he ties up, for his competitions he gets hard and puts on a cock ring to make his dick
appear bigger in this video he probably became semi-erect and tied up or put a cock ring on.....hey not mad at him
he knows where his fan base is   Wink

May help influence some judges.  In a large line-up, it may help if "interested" judges are drawn to look your way.

If this fires up the Republican base and swing voters, so be it.  That is what democracy is all about.  We need a strong two party system, and the last thing we need is for the GOP to self-destruct giving us a multi-party scenario like in Europe.  It all depends on which candidates will be selected in the primaries.  Lately Republicans have been picking a lot of candidates who are unable to get the swing voters, e.g., Cucinelli in Virginia.  If we do go Republican in 2014 and 2016, the one thing I hope is that Obamacare will be too deeply entrenched to be realistically dismantled (e.g., allowing insurers to revert to pre-existing denials, etc). And, of course, the generalized filibuster should remain in the dustbin of history.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Good Riddance to Filibuster on: November 23, 2013, 03:10:48 AM
If I am reading the chart above correctly, the reason it "worked for 200 years", is that it was HARDLY EVER USED up until about 1966.  Thereafter it has been abused by BOTH PARTIES, with the crescendo of abuse during the last several years by Republicans in the Senate during Obama's presidency.  It has caused a breakdown in day-to-day administration of government matters (e.g., middle level judges and beauracrats not getting placed into their administrative positions with an excessive amount of crybaby harping in front of television cameras during congressional committees).  The founders certainly never envisioned this and they did not spell its use out in the Constitution other than for high matters of state (Advise and Consent).  It got glamorized in certain Hollywood movies (Jimmy Stewart going to Washington and the movie Advise and Consent which was about a Secretary of State nominee who lacked personal integrity) so I guess some see it as part of our inherited canon, but I don't see it that way at all.  I guess we have waited for a "divisive" president (a Predident who by the way got almost 55 percent of the popular vote a year ago and who did extremely well among the most educated demographic) to get rid of something that has not worked as intended for the last 50 years or so.

It's really irresponsible to leave such a large number of positions vacant for so long.  Speaks to an unwillingness to have the government function smoothly (also seen during the shutdown).  Republicans brought this down themselves by being so intransigent. 
20  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Good Riddance to Filibuster on: November 22, 2013, 05:18:03 PM
I don't care about he said/she said.  My point is simply that the filibuster is dysfunctional no matter who has control.  But certain media will twist this all around and show historical videos and do a big crybaby thing over this
21  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Good Riddance to Filibuster on: November 22, 2013, 03:13:08 PM
Although the Democrats should not gloat, because they were against getting rid of the filibuster when the Republicans were in control a few years ago, we are all better off without the filibuster.  What government can run smoothly requiring a 60 percent vote for day-to-day matters and appointments?  And don't let anybody tell you that the founders put the filibuster in the Constitution.  The only things I believe require a 60 percent or more vote in the Constitution are treaties, Supreme Court justices, maybe cabinet officers (although I am not sure of that one), and, of course, changing the Constitution itself.  This will be twisted around on some of the news media tonight, but - believe me - we are all better off after this change.

Prayer is really helpful.  If you're in a depressed state, your body and mind will resist prayer but keep trying.
Breath deeply and focus on the lower part of your body (to even out all the tension from your upper part, e.g. focus on feeling the blood flow in your legs).  When praying, pray for OTHER PEOPLE more than for yourself.  Think your way into their heart and soul and be as sincere as you can be.  I am Christian so I use the Trinity, sometimes I feel like I am addressing the Father, sometimes the Son, and sometimes the Holy Spirit.  I know this sounds very corny but I have found that prayer can really get us outside ourselves, and thus helps with the blues.

He is young enough that he should embark on an education program to get certification in some job category that has high likelihood of landing jobs.  I am thinking physical education teacher in the schools, registered nurse, maybe something in law enforcement or probabtion, etc. where a certification is involved.  This will mean several years in college which is tough to afford, but there are a lot of federal education grants, etc.  Important that he not have any criminal convictions, but if I were in his shoes, I would embark on getting educated for a whole new career because he has enough working years ahead of him to make it pay off.  Forget about bodybuilding in the meanwhile.  Be a skinny ex-pro.  No realistic way to waste money on gym drugs during this period of education.  I know other guys in this same position and it's tough, because it takes a whole new mind-set and it's hard to make the finances work while you're going for the new education.  Maybe even move in with his parents for a while and take public transportation. If he realizes this is only a short-term strategy for an important longer-term goal, maybe his ego can tolerate it.  This is the only realistic thing to do, otherwise you'll just retire and die broke.  These guys are paying the price of living the pro bodybuilder lifestyle which is exciting in your 30s and into early 40s but does not do much for you after that.

Agree we need to slash spending, including entitlements!  Lots of time we look in all the wrong places.  Yesterday Wall Street Journal article detailed the trend for American candy manufacturers to take all their jobs overseas because sugar costs twice as much in USA as overseas.  Why?  Nice fat subsidies to the agri-business sugar producers.  (I'm still in favor of Obamacare - a developed nation like ours should not have millions of people running around without health insurance).
