3026  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Waistline limit in Japan..fat people are in trouble on: June 15, 2008, 05:30:43 AM

"Under a national law that came into effect two months ago, companies and local governments must now measure the waistlines of Japanese people between the ages of 40 and 74 as part of their annual checkups. That represents more than 56 million waistlines, or about 44 percent of the entire population.

Those exceeding government limits 33.5 inches for men and 35.4 inches for women, which are identical to thresholds established in 2005 for Japan by the International Diabetes Federation as an easy guideline for identifying health risks and having a weight-related ailment will be given dieting guidance if after three months they do not lose weight. If necessary, those people will be steered toward further re-education after six more months
"


"But because the new state-prescribed limit for male waistlines is a strict 33.5 inches, he had anxiously measured himself at home a couple of days earlier. Im on the border, he said."

Yes.. You can't play basketball without conditioning. You also need good functional strength.

I'd say baseball players are the least athletic because baseball is a skill sport more than anything. Otherwise you wouldn't have fat mexicans like Manny Ramirez being one of the best in the sport.

that fat mexican as you call him makes $20+ million per year

Given the amount of hype about how great the city is I was surprised by the dirtyness of San Francisco.  And of course it's obscenely overpriced. 

yeah, that china town area requires constant application of the hand sanitizer
3032  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: This man makes his living as a personal trainer: Would you hire him on: June 14, 2008, 02:12:49 AM
You can have all the book knowledge in the world and it doesn't make you a better trainer. Just like anyother trade, you can graduate but the real knowledge comes with YEARS of CEU's and most of all hands on knowledge. Do you think a doctor for example (not comparing PT's to Dr's) just does his/her 8-10 years of schooling and that's it, their done learning for the rest of of they're careers?


do you tell your clients that you are on HRT and that is where your gains and low BF comes from?

Bay and Goat, my intention is to get the American public off our addiction to petro. Ofcourse the end goal is a renew/reusable form of fuel. I am merely presented and idea to get us to reduce our demand for it.

My point is that without financial motivation we will never change.
3034  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: $10/gallon will solve all problems on: June 13, 2008, 07:53:55 AM
This is prolly drivel, as comparing the driving we do to that those in larger nations do is nowhere near an accurate measure - but we are at $8 a gallon now, and no one is thinking to catch a bus.

Not a thought, gov tried some campaign to encourage us to bus it and that was met with hyena like laughs and disbelief of government while we drove around in our cars.


good, that means that the general population has the money to absorb the price thus paying a higher tax to the gov.

the people that are able to use the mass transit system will save a fortune..
3035  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: $10/gallon will solve all problems on: June 13, 2008, 07:52:12 AM
Diesel is more expensive than gasoline in europe.

Diesel = oil.

Hope this helps.


What you need is Hydrogen fuel, solar power or sth like that.



you should look up the process of seperating the hydrogen atom from water...guess what..that process uses oil  Undecided

3037  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: $10/gallon will solve all problems on: June 13, 2008, 05:45:01 AM
lol, brutal bullshit here, i hope you are kidding.

Only country without general speed limits is germany, and even here we have lots of speed limits - plus, the amount of used gasoline is rising enormously when you speed.

Americans tned to drive big cars with big engines, while i.e. in italy and france, the bestsellers are small cars with small engines.

Plus it would free us from the arabs and save the environment.

Problem would be the transition time until new methods are available. With rising gas prices, EVERYTHING from living to food to entertainment will be super-expensive.

not really, just need to announce a plan like

"We will add a $1 tax to gas every calendar year for the next 5 years". Immediately people will start to buy the diesel and alternative options.
3038  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: $10/gallon will solve all problems on: June 13, 2008, 05:35:08 AM
i already wrote that a few days ago.

 Grin Grin

cool, this has been on my mind for a while yet the average person seem not able to grasp this concept.

this would immediately make people start to use mass transit or seek alternative options ( bikes, mopeds, car pool, diesel, electric, walk).  But as stated no politician would get elected if he mentioned this, this is the long answer that we need.
3039  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: $10/gallon will solve all problems on: June 13, 2008, 05:32:09 AM
well when you are paying out the ass for everything from food to electronics you will see the flaw in this-----------the trucking industry is a huge part of America and at $10 a gallon----everything we take for granted now will be 3-5times the cost

stupid and not very well thought out argument Undecided

from my understand most trucks run on Diesel, the tax increase would not extend to Diesel
3040  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / $10/gallon will solve all problems on: June 13, 2008, 05:19:09 AM
In the US I still see tons of SUV/Trucks with only 1 person in it. Those things are gas guzzlers yet people are still driving them. Also the average American car is pretty large.

I read that in Europe they are average nearly 40 mpg while we are averaging 25 mpg.

Since we can't control supply (OPEC), I contend that we should control our demand.  This can be accomplished by taxing gasoline to the point where it reaches $10+/ gallon.

Also keep in mind that current price of gas $4.50+- is not because there is less oil available, but because the suppliers are setting they see fit.

This will also provide a financial incentive for Americans to buy more fuel effiecients cars, which in turn would start a  cycle of car manufacturers making cheaper and more efficient cars (win/win). And also make us look at alternative options.

we don't need short terms fixes, we need long term solutions unfortunately no politician will would be elected under those conditions.


if you are against please state why.

Totally. Stavios was a paying customer.

I've had that a couple of times and I don't even look 'strong and muscular', just they know I train/own gym. Some male outweighing me by 100lbs and a whole foot taller would freely say "hahah, you're into lifting weights, you got that covered"  Roll Eyes

You both have valid points, but that is why in my original statement I tied it to free college education.

Either way,  I am afraid that no on in politics is willing to take a risk and do what is best for the country. They are more concerned with issues that generate short term results but hurl our country towards long term disaster.


for the life of me I don't see why the federal governement should be allowed to borrow money.  Balanace the fucking budget with what you have. Stop dippping into social security to pay for pork barrel spending.
3048  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: AMERICA in its current state. HAHHAAHAHAHAHAHHH on: June 09, 2008, 04:26:00 AM
For what reason?

It will likely be there in a few years.

monetary reason is the quickest way to motivate people..by artifically raising the price you will see tremendous changes in a short time.

1. By next year you won't see any more SUVs or personal trucks.
2. Manufactures will starts the cycle of creating super efficient cars.
3. It will make buying a hybrid/electric cheaper in the long run. The joke now is the hybrid cost more than gas, so buying one is not cheaper.
4. People will consider walking/riding bicycles from short trips if possible.
5. More people will look to mass transit. Which will lead to better and more efficient mass transport systems.
6. Reduce our dependency on oil.

I could go on and on on the benefits

in  Europe they average 40mpg, the US average 24mpg.  Price of petro clearly is motivativing factor.
3049  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: did bruce lee have the best pound for pound lat spread in all of material ar on: June 09, 2008, 04:14:14 AM
Big difference. Soccer players are lazy. They need roids so they can workout LESS.

Lee has been working out his whole life, everyday ridiculously long. I doubt he juiced, he was very small and light. Also, if you run a few miles every day, you don't need fatuburners, especially IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN FAT.

all stupid gibberish, you guys are idiots if you believe you need roids to look like this. Constant intense training is the key, think about that.

that concept is too complex to comprehend and will never catch on.

a guy that does martial arts training for a hours per day and weighs 130lbs must be on drugs...lol
