 My compassion is usually geared towards children and the
elderly but if you've ever had a semi long illness or injury
where you are in alot of pain for a long period of time it makes you
feel more for those that are suffering.

Secondly, They trained our soldiers to see the Arabic type people
they were at war with as equal to a leach sucking your blood.
If 5 marines were being shot at by one sniper and there were
25 other people who were innocent bystanders; the protocol
became to kill them all to get the one.

I believe since 2010-2011 and every year since more soldiers of that war
have committed suicide than have died in the war.

Anyone can copy/paste
More soldiers commit suicide than died in combat
into Google and have a read about the effects of temporarily
loosing your conscience and then regaining it.

His left delt looks like the 80's and early 90's guys
with good striations and shape.
His right delt is obviously mishapen by site injections
of some oily substance.

In the 80's a guy was either genetically blessed or worked his ass
off to get capped delts.
This is one thing that set Chris Dickerson apart from many
of his time.
Today, everyone has big capped oily delts with little striations/
Hell, even Carrot top got stupid looking capped delts.
Paul Dillett's delts from the front were a sight to behold
creating possibly the most impressive silhouette ever;
BUT from the back the true story was revealed.
His delts were not all muscle but injections of some substance
looking like 2 oilbags.

Just watched we need to talk about kevin.

Seriously crazy movie, seems alot of bodybuilders have some of these traits especially you know who.

Why are people so silent about the issue.

Although I am a compassionate, empathetic person, I enjoy
some pretty dark movies such as Hostel, ect.
I don't have psycho thoughts nor do I dream those types of dreams.
For example- If someone is gay and repressing it; I believe it will
manifest on the subconscious level through dreams.
Thx for posting this movie because I am a movie buff and will
definitely check it out.

Here is a good psychopath movie if you haven't seen it.
It is called Rampage. The whole movie is on youtube.

Hard to believe these are 40 years apart.

There is no doubt Arnold is the GOAT.
Here is a post I made on another website
that explains very well why Arnold was the best.
It is long but well worth the time and most of it is
Copy/Paste from an article.

Many of the younger guys mainly know of the 1980 Arnold and 1975 Arnold
who were respectively 75% and 85% of his best 1975 being the 85%.
The 1973 and 74 Arnold's were incredible.

Arnold in his prime looked much larger than his weight would indicate. (around 240 at 6'1)
I think a lot of this has to do with the emphasis on glutes and legs today.
The glutes are the largest muscle and add the larger legs which were not
as big a deal in the 70's and you have heavier bodybuilders.

Here is an article I bookmarked if this question ever came up because I believe if you had Arnold
in this new era at 26-29 years old he would dominate.

This article is if Arnold were young and competing now; not with his 70's physique.
By Geoff Roberts

The best comparison to Arnold in the sport today in terms of a single physique in my mind would be Cedric McMillan. Assuming Cedric did or does the 2013 Olympia and he is in any kind of shape, itís safe to say that your attention would be pulled towards his physique due to his height, width, lack of distention, and roundness. These are all attributes Arnold also possessed in strides in his prime. As imposing a figure as Cedric may be on stage, thoughts of a modern day Arnold gives imposing a whole new meaning with his Looney Tunes arms, pecs that each resemble 72-ounce steaks, and cannonball delts that would make me want to visit Gettysburg.
The classic vacuum pose is disappearing as fast as our rainforests today and nobody hit a vacuum like Arnold did, even when he weighed over 240 pounds, from the side his waist appeared to be only a few inches thick. This said, I fully believe with the right precautions Arnold would still have his nutty vacuum pose at over 280 pounds which would be astounding. In comparing a modern Arnold to Cedric itís safe to say that Arnold would outdo Cedric in all of these shared attributes and take every pose outside of the rear lat spread.

In the Olympia first call out, assuming the top guys were all on their game, Arnold may not only be the tallest and heaviest competitor, but also the only one with the ability to hit a legitimate vacuum pose. Itís hard to say whether or not Arnold's weaknesses would still be weaknesses with modern knowledge and technology, however itís only fair to assume they would be for the sake of this argument. With this in mind, Arnold would be vulnerable from the back, especially the back lat spread which is why finding a picture of Arnold hitting a back lat spread is similar to winning the lottery.

This is only one pose, however, and I personally feel his monster arms and delts would keep him above water in the back double bi. As far as the front shots itís hard for me to imagine the show being anything but ďlights outĒ for any competitor onstage not named Arnold. In Arnold's most muscular at a grainy 282 pounds his delts, arms, and chest would look like two shaved Belgian blue bulls all wrapped up in numerous pythons attempting to constrict them to death.

Who would win this epic battle Ė Phil looking like something even a cartoonist would say is unrealistic, Branch looking like he carbed-up on QUIKRETE (Aceto line), Jay looking as though he must have custom-made wide doors in order to fit through them, Big Ramy making the scale moan under 285 pounds at only 5'10Ē with a small waist, or Kai looking as dense as a scalding meteor pummeling towards earth?

Rather than beat a dead horse and attempt to mathematically compare waist sizes, arm sizes (if Arnold's arms were 22-plus inches at 240 pounds, what would they measure at 290 pounds?) etc., why donít you go ahead and find a photo of Arnold's 1974 front double biceps and attempt to imagine him with modern day grainy conditioning. Oh, yeah, and 40-plus pounds of extra muscle evenly distributed over his physique. If the image this creates in your head does not evoke considerable chills down your spine you're either clinically blind or just simply not a true fan of bodybuilding!

I haven't looked at all this thread so most of these pics are probably already posted
but these are some of my favorites.

The 2 BM + 2 CB's + 10 CM + 4 small fries = 4360 calories.
Sauce and drink puts it all about 5000.
I have eaten a meal around 5000 calories when I was in college.
Alot of it was calorie dense cookies and wasn't as much food
as that McD's meal. I can't imagine eating like that all the time.
Now I eat around 2000 healthy calories daily; part of that is
a Labrada Chocolate protein drink everyday.
It feels better to eat less.

It's really not an exciting prospect unless your a die hard fan

What if SM had an extreme mental illness and was a psychopath
with extreme impulse control.
Some woman breaks his heart and he, in a fit of rage;
pushes the moon into the earth killing all life forms
leaving Supe alone to search for other intelligent life forms

The Rock is rumored  to play Shazam who they are saying

This would be a better match up and both The Rock and
the guy who played MOS are jacked.

Arnold looked really good for his age for a long time
and then somewhere along the way he got that older
Grandpa look.

Someone mentioned his Governorship which does age men.
He had the genetic heart problem and had to slow down the weight training.
He is a Germanic type white guy who stayed fairly to deeply
tanned from around 20 well into his 40's.
(This will age your skin greatly if you are not brownish/black.
He had grey hair by about 30 years old. I'm talking very grey
which would seem to indicate accelerated aging even if it's only 10-20%.
(But what a life) Probably one in a billion!

Here he is at 50-51 in 1999 and he looks youthful and muscular.
Of course he is 66 and Father Time catches everyone.
Pretty funny clip here starting around 4:43.
Arnold with his usual charisma and humor.

Kai has the most dense, freakiest physique
in the IFBB.
Phil, especially in 2011 has one of the best BB physiques
of all time but Kai's muscles look harder; like they were
built from lifting heavy weights.
Although Phil's muscles are extremely defined, they do have
a softer look overall.
Personal preference if both are 100%.
Fact: If people had voted, Kai would have won 2012
but I think we all know it's probably 40:1 in reality for Kai
to win. Phil would have to be quite off. 
9  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Paul Dillett - 1993 Ironman Pro PICS!!! on: July 24, 2014, 05:33:29 PM
I liked this or his 1993 ASC look the best.
On the video he actually gets big applause when he
hits his rear lat spread.

In 1994 he was more ripped but lost some roundness
in the Grand Prix he won.
In 1996 he came in at 275 instead of 263 in 1993
and lost alot of that small waist;  incredible V taper in open
arm poses.
1st time I saw this vid back in 1993 my 1st thought was...
This is the 1st BBer who has long arms with full muscle bellies
like Arnold.
My 2nd thought was how in the heck did Vince beat Dillett.
10  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Mr Olympia 2014 - this is him on: July 24, 2014, 05:02:51 PM
midsection wider than Heath

I hope to God that isn't a recent picture because that means his
protocol for his Olympia prep is screwed again.

Here he is a month ago; looking good...gut in check.

Last two are from 2009 pre Arnold Classic so we know
from the 2012 Olympia and the 2009 ASC his waist can come down.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Are there any proof of pros bringing up their calves/forearms on: July 18, 2014, 01:45:24 AM
lol.. yes, thats called drug use... and then later, synthol.

during his career he "grew his calves" using synthol/implants..

Yes and as he got bigger his forearms grew proportionately.
His question was not - Do you know a Natural who?

Did I mention calves?
Hard to post here with replies like this.
I hate explaining myself to grown men like they are
12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Are there any proof of pros bringing up their calves/forearms on: July 17, 2014, 05:55:45 AM
If you look at Flex Wheeler younger or retired his forearms
are quite thin but very respectable at his biggest.

13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Sorry Getbig-I'm fan of Phil Heath on: July 14, 2014, 04:03:13 PM
Excellent post, I don't understand all the Phil "HATE" on GB myself.....I actually saw him on Saturday night as the guest poser at the show in NY, he's a complete FREAK in person, yes he may not have the widest shoulders( but there plenty wide) , but I have never seen a BB that thick width wise from front to back, small waist and in great shape 10 weeks out. Major chest improvements this offseason.

He also got up at the podium and addressed the crowd, he is a good public speaker and is good for BB, he doesn't sound like a stereotypical meathead when he speaks.

And Nick Trigili was the overall winner in this show, that kid is a total freak too.....he was 255 on stage.

And 40 years ago too which is what makes it more amazing.. Arnold is the King!

Phil is a great bodybuilder who looks like a Mr. Olympia and is well spoken.
He'll never look as good as 2011. After that his waist has gotten blurry
and he is getting too big for his frame.

Near perfection here by bodybuilding criteria...

I vaguely know who she is because I mainly only interested
about the outcome of the men's contests.

So, I am surprised at some of the comments because
facially resembles Kate from lost in these pics.
(And that's a very good thing!)

15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kai goes psycho on phil (kai vs phil video) on: April 12, 2014, 08:52:16 PM
Pretty delusional to even consider this for the top spot at mr O

Philippe might be a tiny tit with clavicles rivaling the french catwalk models, but at least he's got the aesthetic twink look about him. Kai is just a bloated mess with a collapsed abdominal wall. Bring back the standard of the 90's please. Mass monsters with granite looks.

Also, they all fade into nothingness compared to a prime Coleman/Yates/Nasser/Dillet

That was his worst showing ever. (2010 Mr. O)
You Quote (Pretty delusional to even consider this for the top spot at mr O)
You are correct because he placed 7th that year and should have been 8th
behind Martinez.
He was still working with Oscar at the time who's known for putting size
on bodybuilders but also with a huge gut.

Go to the 2011 NYP working with Farah.
Team Andro filmed a long segment where you see them from the side
for a long time and Kai's gut is flat as a pancake.
Also, 2012 Olympia - incredible midsection.

2013 ASC Europe was not good stomach wise.
He dried out a lot from the Olympia which can irritate the stomach causing it to bloat.

16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Yates 96 German Gran Prix on: April 11, 2014, 06:20:53 PM
I think this photo shoot captured his granite look about as good
as any photos.
BTW - That video is shot in a 4:3 ratio format and posted in a 16:9 format
making his waist look a lot wider but also everything else.
This may have come from the makers of the DVD but I've seen other shots
from Nasser and they have that same stretched out look that are not from Delta.
I've also seen the original format video.
Open pictures to full size to get the full effect.
These smaller pictures don't do the full size ones justice.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dorian Yates vs. Ronnie Coleman - who was better? on: April 10, 2014, 07:38:44 PM
I hate to keep hearing Yates was drier than everyone.
Was he drier than Paul Dillett when he froze up at the
1994 ASC he was so dry.
Did that give Paul that granite look that no one else seemed to have.
Dorian had genetically very, very thin skin that gave him that look.
Unfortunately, except for his back he wasn't gifted with a lot of separation/striations
except for his back.
Ronnie had extremely thin skin waist down from the back but no amount of water loss
or fat loss was going to make his back as detailed as Dorian's.
Darker skinned individuals in general have thicker skin but better shape and the lighter
skinned guys tend to have the thinner skin, grainier look.
There are exceptions but in general this is the way it is.
Fortunately for Ronnie he had pretty thin skin everywhere, although it seemed to be
thickest in his back. His mounds of back muscles plus excellent shape made his back
the best overall or 2nd best according to who you ask.
Yates had a bit bigger bone structure but Ronnie compensated for this with rounder,
more bulbous-but extremely striated muscle.
Ronnie had relatively weak delts until 98 and even then they were still a bit flatish according
to Peter McGough's Olympia report that year. He finally balanced out his delts with the rest of his
upper body in 1999.
Coleman had several great years and I happened to come across this a few weeks ago
and posted on another forum. Very impressive to say the least.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Ultimate Warrior eye rolling thread on: April 10, 2014, 06:17:42 PM
Why would you get defensive when other people point out the fact wrestling is fake?  

Written early morning on April 9th on a different forum.
Check last sentence... People considering it fake wrestling was dead 20 yrs. ago
and I havn't watched any since they had the WCW/NWO which was entertaining for a while.

He was the only reason I watched a bit of wrestling late 80's and early 90's.
I didn't care if he wasn't a great wrestler; I was inspired by the build and intensity of the gimmick.
This is a shock cause he was always no drugs, stay in shape, ect.
It was obvious he used his fair share of juice in his prime.
I've got a lot of the story now by spending about an hour on youtube so here is my take.

He did a video to promote a WWF video game and looked in tremendous shape for 53-54.
Obvious TRT, HRT at the least. He looked slim in the face and the abs were showing.
I've been seeing all these commercials about how TRT is bad for your heart, ect through new studies.
I sure hope it's just hype and propaganda because I planned on getting on TRT in the next 6 months
and get those test levels back to when I was 25 instead of 48.

Anyway, he was inducted in the WWE hall of fame and looked like a different person than the commercial.
I wonder if he may have had a mini stroke because the left side of his face; eye and mouth seemed to droop
ever so slightly but it is there if you watch long enough. This would explain a limp also.

Monday Raw he gives a death type speech talking about his last breath and how the legend
will live on way after he's gone. Something to that effect. Very strange that he died the next day.
I think he knew his health for whatever reason was not good.
He looked like he had aged at least 10 years in the last 5. In fact he looked like he had
aged 5 years or more from the commercial they had shot.

He made his mark on 10's of thousands of people and will be remembered as one of the 1st
to really bring the entertainment side out of Sports Entertainment instead of most considering it
fake wrestling at the time.

RIP Warrior

Day before he died speech - Kind of Prophetic so to speak.

Warrior was not a big boned guy; the same as most bodybuilder types.
Small joints and medium to small bones with big muscle bellies.
Considering this; Warrior put the best bodyslam ever on Andre
the Giant AFTER Andre got real heavy - around 550.
There were others who did very good slams on Andre when he was
around 400. Considering Warrior's overall size this was a very impressive feat.

Scott Hall (Razor Ramone) and Larry Zbyszko talk about this along with
talking about Arnold S. around the 2:50 mark.

I just read the 1st page + some and I must becoming desensitized
to stuff I watch. The thing that bothered me on a moral level
was ripping off all those people of their money.
I can understand wanting to live most of your waking hours under the influence
of something if it makes you feel better. (Not talking extremes in the movie like
the qualudes did)..not remembering what you had done the night before.
I thought the movie was awesome and enjoyed pretty much the whole thing.
If Getbiggers are saying it's too much then I might need to check myself
although my times of wild parties with strippers and assorted candies are
a thing of the past.
I did feel bad for really LOLing when those old Ludes took him too a different phase
he had never been...the cerbal palsy phase + the way he moved on the ground;
way too funny not too laugh but still felt bad about it.
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Did Dorian retire just before "Palumboism" had a chance to set in? on: December 28, 2013, 08:43:56 AM
I used to think that Nasser should have beat Yates in 1997 as well, based on photos.  However, in watching the video of the contest, it was clear that Nasser had no density to his physique.  When he turned to the side, it was over.  When he turned around, even worse.  Pictures don't tell the whole story. 

I realize if I had been there in person or seen a good video I may very well feel different.
Thx for your input.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Did Dorian retire just before "Palumboism" had a chance to set in? on: December 27, 2013, 09:58:55 PM
Dorian's left arm was gone in 1997. A torn bicep and an even worse
tear to the left tricep.
Dorian's arms in 1993 were quite excellent although some tend to disagree
but even the uninjured right arm by 1997 had diminished some in size.
JUST GOING BY PHOTOS I see no way Yates should have beat Nasser.
Yates was superior in the back shots but Nasser was more overwhelming
comparatively from the front than Yates was comparatively from the back.
I'm not a fan of Nasser's overall physique at all and I think the 1993 version
of Yates competitively is the top 2 or 3rd competition physique ever; BUT Nasser
should have beat Yates here. Please take a close look at the 1st picture.

Really?? Kai looks awkward as fuck! There's no flow to him ,a bunch of body parts thrown together

Only when he's in shape like 2012. Check the video link in my post.
Kai's midsection is much more appealing and he has better flow in quite a few poses.

24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: From the pages of FLEX Magazine on: December 21, 2013, 02:50:13 AM
Iceman - The highlighted stuff comes from Kai's comments in Generation Iron.
My advice to Kai would be come in as conditioned as possible like 2012 and hope
Phil has an off night. Anything can happen in those last 48 hours and like Dexter does;
if someones off, he's there to pick them off.
Kai's shape rivals Phil's and in some ways is better when he comes in like this.

 Ronnie's gut was bad 2002-2004 and he brought it down incredibly for 2005.
After that year he has always had it.
It could be visceral fat around the organs and underneath the skin.
Kind of like the skinny guy that's pretty lean but has a bulging beer belly.
