526  Getbig Misc Too Board / Pro Bodybuilding Weekly - Radio Board / Re: PBW: National Champion Ed Nunn, Peter Putnam - Plus: Robert Kennedy (Monday) on: November 30, 2008, 10:05:10 PM
Ed Nunn will be a solid pro.  He needs maybe 2-3 years to get some maturity and thickness.  He has the frame tho, definitely.

Do those biceps look suspicious...or what?  Very string physique and the arms are obviously enhanced hence throwing off the flow. 
527  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: IFBB worlcd champ overall winner vs. NPC Nationals overall winner on: November 28, 2008, 07:55:40 AM
NPC is nowhere to be compared to the world … even though it is a drug tested show … you are comparing the best in the world with the best in the US … all the winners of each category at the world have a pro level physique …

As for the physique type … there in an eye pleasing physique and a winning physique … and eye pleasing is what regular people or fan fall in love with and try to be like … where the wining physiques are the physique of guys who wins the show by far yet not that appealing to the general eye

No one wants to be like Ronnie or Dorian … yet they both deserved the 14 Olympia they won … and regardless of Dorian’s relationship with other officials or Ronnie getting a contract offer after the 98 pre-judging … they deserved the win …. And so is the case with the winners of the world … when you see a guy all year long … you get brain washed that he is the only one and he is the best … where you take the fact of the matter … and with all due respect to all the winners of the nationals … Putnam would have placed in the top 15 of the light heavy weight if he was lucky and Ed Nun might barely won his category

A lot of people that this guy or that guy should have won but when you come to the judging a bodybuilding show from the criteria aspect than the judging was fair to some extend … guys came up to and told me that Baitolla (Iran) the winner of the light middle weight should have won the overall … but you got to keep in mind that size hold its weight at an overall rating … Baitolla had a very similar physique to Tabrizi with a little bit better condition ( he was even bigger that the middle weight winner and fuller that than the heavy weight winner too) but when u have similar physiques the size aspect rules even if there is a bit of condition advantage to the smaller guy … 


When it comes to pro level … most of these guys who have a winning physiques are not that good I marketing themselves and don’t know how the pro levels show and competition are executed … yet you have some eye pleasing physiques who know how to market themselves doing much better … getting endorsement contracts and getting props on the boards (like that means anything) of course at a virtual comparison by getting some photo from various show and different lighting and comparing  guys from a different show will give the edge to the “eye pleasing physique” but if they stand in each other … it will be lights out … same as Ronnie and Dorian did to all the other competitors of their era

Whoever knows me knows that I idolize Shawn Ray and Dorian Yates ... and to me the most debatable Olympia was the 94 and 96 … yet … I consider that mass ruled over symmetry to some extend and that is how the sport is … and if anyone doesn’t like it … you can always switch to golf


Well said...

535  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Bodybuilding.com member kills himself on webcamera on: November 21, 2008, 04:55:23 PM
Regarding this situation, I have thought about it a lot over the last 24.  

As most of you know on here know, I have bipolar depression and borderline personality disorder.  That kid talked about how bb.com was like all he had etc etc.  Look, as lame as it sounds, getbig.com is my outlet and one of the few joys I have.  I have very very few friends in real life because I am hard to hang out with as I tend to change moods ultra quick.  I don't leave my apartment much because I am prone to violence in public.  So ya, its weak, but getbig is like a little community for me that I dont have irl.  

I think about suicide a lot, but not in the manner of running out and doing it.  For years I have struggled with voices at times that tell me to just go out and do it.  I did the pill thing once also, not much fun having a 3 foot plastic tube shoved into your stomach through your mouth.  Ya, I get fucked up, but offing myself is a selfish thing to do and I do anything in my power to beat that issue.  And to do it on camera, man I just don't get that.  But I do understand what that kid was going through, and I feel for his family.  It's been tough on my family too, and I hate putting them through this shit.

The people who egged him on and especially the one who phoned him and told him to die homo, I hope karma meets them one day.  No matter whether they are serious or not, when someone is talking about killing themself, take it seriously and don't be retarded and tell them to go for it.

In essence, I relate strongly to that kid who did that yesterday.  I think what he did was shitty, but depression can be a huge struggle.  And to people who say "snap out of it" or "its in your head"--fuck you.  Anyways, I just wanted to vent about what happened, thats all.

cliff notes:
bb.com kid kills self
sometimes internet community is all we have
I have depression and borderline personality disorder
suicide is lame--but I understand
people who egged him get bad karma
just me venting blah blah blah

Good post.  You're a good man and a valued member of GetBig.
536  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: When Chic and Prince used to train.... on: November 16, 2008, 11:08:21 PM
I would laugh my ass off inside everytime I would watch Chic and prince train back in the day. These two brutes would train at a snails pace and huff and puff with 105lbs on a max set of EZ curls for 8 reps. Pathetic. These two Flex coverboys couldnt carry my jockstrap in the strength department. I loved watching Bob doing his curls with his navel high t shirt on. Neither of these men ever handled any real weight in Golds. Never did a compound power movement either. Just pussy workouts and heavy gear. They wouldnt come close to me when i was blowing out 500lb plus squats, and 500lb deadlifts. They just would disappear into the 3rd room and hammer strength away. Stage muscles and pansy workouts for these 2. Off season and on season. Prince would have gotten a nosebleed if he squatted and chic would have had butt water shooting out of his anus.

...and you ended up being an internet poster who talks about the weight he used to push and pull..yet never made a dent in the sport.

The Obama Team's Online Transition
Obama Plans Gone From Transition Web Site


(CNET) If you want a job in an Obama administration, be prepared to disclose every blog post or comment you've ever written.

A nine-page questionnaire requires applicants to list -- and if possible, provide copies of -- all "posts or comments on blogs or other Web sites" they have ever made. Also required are "aliases" or nicknames used on those sites.

Translated into English, this means that President-elect Obama wants to know far more about you than his predecessors did. That requirement would force applicants to disclose information about Facebook and MySpace pages, profiles posted on dating Web sites, and even what was posted on Web sites like CNET and YouTube that allow readers to append comments.

Note that question doesn't only ask for potentially embarrassing or incendiary posts. It wants a list of "each" one.

It also asks for the URLs of "any Web sites that feature you in either a personal or professional capacity," and suggests MySpace and Facebook by name as examples. Dating sites like Match.com would be included, too.

Perhaps this won't be a problem for older Democrats vying for senior positions like treasury secretary or attorney general. But for today's Facebook-and-YouTube generation, requesting a list (and, "if readily available," a copy) of all Web site posts and comments the applicant ever made is not a trivial task to complete -- and means that the Obama administration may not be quite as tech-savvy as its reputation would indicate.

These and other questions seem to represent Obama's plan to avoid the the Lani Guinier Effect. President Clinton appointed Guinier as assistant attorney general, and then was forced to withdraw her nomination in the face of severe criticism. Clinton claimed at the time that he had not read her writings favoring racial quotas.

Clinton also was forced to withdraw the nominations of Zoe Baird and Judge Kimba Wood for attorney general because of questions about whether they paid employment taxes for their nannies. President George W. Bush had the same problem with former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, appointed to be Homeland Security secretary.

Obama's questionnaire seeks to remedy that problem. It asks four questions about domestic help, including housekeepers, babysitters, nannies, and gardeners. It asks about child support payments, information about enemies that may "criticize" your nomination, tax returns, loans, jobs held abroad, and so on.

One question asks: "Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information."

That's raised eyebrows among gun owners -- and drawn fire from the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action--because there is no general federal requirement that guns be registered. Under federal law, it's possible to be given a firearm by a family member or purchase one from a private party without your name being included in a federal database. (Laws in a handful of states, including California, are more restrictive.)

In a 1996 survey sent to state politicians, Obama said he supports a law banning the "possession" of handguns. He also indicated he supported Washington, D.C.'s gun ban, which was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. His campaign Web site said the Second Amendment protects an individual right and noted that "millions of hunters and shooters own and use guns every year," but did not mention firearms used for self-defense.

542  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / CLICK on the link provided to DEMAND LA Times to release the Obama/Khalidi video on: November 02, 2008, 02:32:05 PM
With less than two days before Election Day, the L.A. Times has
decided to withhold a potentially explosive video featuring
presidential candidate Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi, a
pro-terrorist radical and one-time spokesman for the late
PLO head Yasser Arafat, rather than allow the public to view
the video and make up their own minds.

According to the L.A. Times report, the video shows Obama
reminiscing about meals prepared by Khalidi's wife, and
"conversations that had challenged his thinking, " but
released no other details of the video.

If the L.A. Times professes to be in the news business, it
should reveal all the news, not suppress it.

Given Obama's longtime, personal relationship
with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose anti-Israel rhetoric has been
oft repeated, it's essential Americans have an opportunity to
view the truths found on that videotape--before the election!

On the heals of an amazingly successful grassroots initiative
directed at CNN just days ago, I'm urging Americans to take fast action by contacting the L.A. Times
and demanding they immediately release this video.

Go here to access the L.A. Times article, and send your
personalized email to key L.A. Times staff:

http://www.mrcaction.org/r.asp?U=12866&CID=506&RID=11417499

At this late hour, we cannot allow the liberal
media to withhold key information from the American public.

We simply must take to task whenever we see liberal media bias--
and this is certainly a prime example.

Please take immediate action by contacting the L.A. Times today,
demanding release of that potentially explosive video by clicking here:

http://www.mrcaction.org/r.asp?U=12867&CID=506&RID=11417499

        After sending your emails, and making your phone calls,
        forward this message to 20-30 friends urging them to follow
        your lead by clicking here:

http://www.mrcaction.org/r.asp?U=12868&CID=506&RID=11417499

Again, there is far too much at stake to allow the liberal media
elite to dictate what stories we are fed each day. The media have
a responsibility to report the truth, and we must hold them accountable
whenever necessary.

545  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Practical application of the Socialist's (Obama) "redistribution of wealth" on: October 28, 2008, 11:40:15 PM
Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign the read "Vote
Obama, I need the money." I laughed.

Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again I
laughed--just imagine the coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that
I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there
in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to
someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside.

The server angrily stormed from my sight.

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server
inside as I decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was
grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized
the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter
was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the
actual recipient deserved money more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept
than in practical application

It's one thing to not approve of a candidate's political views, but it is absolutely insane that people hate because of the color of a candidate's skin.  I am not voting for Obama but would vote for Condoleezza Rice (if she were to run in the future) in a heartbeat...color is irrelevent.
