Whatever a women does with her body is strictly her business. If it ends up being attractive or beautiful even better. But other then that is not for us to judge at all. Seriously

Everybody judges. It's human nature. We've been judging each other since we've learned to recognize the differences in each other.
29  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: STOP TELLING WOMEN "DON'T GET TOO MUSCULAR" on: August 24, 2014, 11:21:43 AM
then why would someone elses 'opinion' influence your decision?

an opinion cant be imposed on someone. its an opinion. in and of itself it means absolutely nothing to anyone but the person saying it. you choose to let that opinion impose itself on you.

at what point do people stop worrying about what others think, and their 'opinions', and just do for their own sake. fuck people need to man the fuck up. we're becoming a society of crybabies and wimps.

make your own decisions. why the fuck would you allow anyones 'opinion' to influence that is beyond me.
Because ultimately, and subconsciously we care about other's "opinions", even when we say we don't. We like the attention we get, whether its positive or negative. What we don't like is when someone voices an opinion that we don't like. But, we will accept all the positive attention (ex. "I like what you've done.").
So, basically, it's a way of censoring people...censoring what you don't like or don't want to hear.

Think about it, "Stop telling"...That is telling others to "stop" doing what you detest, what you don't want to hear, but at the same time, you want others to listen to you.
I saw something the other day about  another "Stop telling"...and you want to say, "or what?"

Is it aggravating? Yes. Should people offer unsolicited opinions about someone's physique? Well, it seems only if it is in the positive. Or if it is not the one thing you detest.

do you lift parker?
Yeah, from time to time. Then got into bodyweight exercises. I was really into it (lifting) until I discovered this place. I should "undiscover" getbig and see what happens.

This is true, I haven't played with one in a longtime, but that was a problem with them.

Something like the old Gaspari bar is an interesting compromise, if you can find one -

.
Damn, I have never seen one of those before.

A bit, they put you in more of a neutral grip. But it's not a super change from one to the other, just a little reduction.
The ones with the super curl in them look like you would have a harder time doing close grip curls...some only have the knurling grip on the outer bend, unlike the medium bend bars which have knurling on the inner and outer bends
33  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / EZ Curl Bars on: August 23, 2014, 06:46:53 PM
I've only used ones with the medium bends in them.


 Do the ones with the more extreme bends take less stress off the wrists?
34  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: STOP TELLING WOMEN "DON'T GET TOO MUSCULAR" on: August 23, 2014, 06:12:27 PM
Dude, I clearly forgot that men hate being told they shouldn't tell women what to do. Especially by women. I was expecting a lot of "back to the kitchen"  shit, but not THIS level of ignorance.
 I'm tapping out on this one. Wow.
I remember we had a convo about something similar and you handed me my lunch...in a Peanuts lunchbox.
I have never verbally told a woman in the gym, outside of the gym, etc to "not get too muscular", as it was never my place to do so, or solicited. Giving unsolicited opinions to a person, a woman on what she should or should not do, can be understandably aggravating.  
35  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: STOP TELLING WOMEN "DON'T GET TOO MUSCULAR" on: August 23, 2014, 06:01:43 PM
We all want attention, whether it be from the opposite sex or the same sex, or both.
We may do things for our self (self attention?), but ultimately we want others to acknowledge what we have done. Our physique is the outward embodiment of what we have shaped and molded, and if no one took notice or complimented us on our hard work, then the true question is what was the point. After all, this is what people SEE.

If a person wants to get "too muscular" and they are a woman and are judged on it, oh well. That is what humans do, and men do because, well it's a woman. And women judge men as well. You never hear a woman say, "don't be too rich"---men get judged by women based upon their accomplishments, their cars, their monetary worth, their looks, etc. And we take it, because it is what it is.

Bottom line, we all make choices, and the consequences and repercussions of said choices are that we get judged on them. You cannot please everybody, if you are happy, truly happy with those choices, and whoever supports you, then that is vindication enough.

Wasn't he the pedo? Starting to remember....
People say stuff, and then it becomes "Getbig fact". He had his pic taken with kids. With other Westerners. He got pissed off because people were saying it, and left. He had good insight into Chinese culture and good pics. My guess is that he either wanted to know about another culture or was disenchanted with American culture and women or it was a little bit of both.

Well Piana has always said he doesn't train for strength...

And a BB reality show on a major network wouldn't be a bad idea. Long as they had personalities and drama involved. I don't think they could get that out of the crop of O competitors though.
Phil Heath setting a grapefruit by Kai when he's eating breakfast. Dex going to see a TMNT and people asking to take pictures with him.
Cedric having boot camp for the wayward children of the neighborhood. Ben Pakulski espousing the scientific merits of having big calves. Roelly, just having fun.

Ok "mr china insider"
no, that be garebear. He's got a Chinese woman and family now. He didn't take too kindly to disrespect  And you guys ran him off  Cry

You're very wrong.  Why do you think they've been buying gold like mad?  They are building gold reserves in part to offset a mass write off in U.S treasuries.  They need not rely upon the fat American consumer indefinitely, as they have an ample population to buy the very products they produce, once they allow their currency to rise.  You're also not considering who their major ally is.
Their population wants real authentic product. They don't trust "Chinese made product". They are addicted to Western goods, Western Style. Sure, they produce a lot of stuff for us, but they don't come up with new ideas. To the rich who buy, authenticity is king.

We almost always assume that an ET race will have equal tech in war fighting as they do in space travel. That's a human-centric thought process. We assume it because it's how we would be, nothing more. I posit that we are unique in the universe because of our violent tendencies and that we could very well overwhelm a technologically superior for with the savagery of our attacks. It's quite logical that an advanced ET race would never comprehend something as dramatically stupid as a shahid martyrdom.
You ever watch Falling Skies, by chance?
They could drop kick the U.S economy in a heart beat if they elected to.
And who is gonna by their cheap stuff?
Or their services. I read somewhere that on some packages of fish, it will read caught in Canada, filleted in China...and then it's ship back here. So, you have have many parts of their economy that is dependent on US/North American industries.
Sinking our economy would sink theirs. Plus, you have a lot of rich Chinese that have to have their Western goods. If the US tanks, you have a lot of rich folks really pissed at their own government. Which means focus and money could be turned towards them.

China need only declare economic warfare at their leisure, which they've already made preparations for.
China is getting greedy slapping fines on mostly luxury automakers for having parts that cost, well like a luxury car's parts usually do cost...expensive, and accusing them of price fixing

The Xinhua report said the cost of replacing all the spare parts in a Mercedes-Benz C-Class could be 12 times more than buying a new vehicle, citing a report from the China Automotive Maintenance and Repair Trade Association.

If this keeps up, some manufacturers may just pull out, if they see their profits shriveling up, and or fines (justified or not) eating into their profits.

No way.

I mean she was always a pretty girl but that ass she has built now compared to before makes all the difference in the world.

Maybe, but they biologically may not be as programmed for wanton violence and destruction as we are. Let's face it: if we become starfaring, it'll be against the odds. But I like that action.
It will be the end of us. Picking fights just to pick fights, ain't  the smartest thing. Especially if there maybe (very well probably are) more advanced civilizations with better weaponry and tech.
It's funny but almost every dominant culture that has existed has always considered other cultures that either were their equals or that they have subjugated as "savages", uneducated, uncivilized, etc. Always referring to them as being violent and as aspiring to be more cerebral.

If anything, the chances are we will become more like the "Greys", but with a slight militaristic violent streak. If not breeding those particularly violence/soldiers, and those for scientific endeavors.
46  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Chinese fighter jet tried to intimidate a U.S. navy pilot on: August 23, 2014, 06:25:52 AM
No, I am counting on something extra terrestrial to go kill.
And wouldn't that be a reason for ETs to kill us off, because we are just a violent species that keeps repeating the same things and not learning? I think we should be balanced on all fronts.

Ah yes, the claiming of your family's wealth to be yours.

Very lost look in those eyes. Hey, spend your family's money to make yourself happy.

Thus God spoke to Gluteus and said unto him, "I shall make a mate for you, and to show that you two are bonded together, she shall be called Maximus. And both of you together shall be called 'Gluteus Maximus'. One will not leave the other, and both shall cleave to one another, like snail to shell. One shall not be without the other."
