1  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Do you fear death? on: July 17, 2014, 09:32:36 PM
I recently lost my little brother, he was 24. When I say recently I mean very recently, so seeing this thread pop up is a little eary.

Let me tell you death is no Joke. Nothing could be worse then death, there is no coming back, that's it. I dont think people should fear it though - we will however I think, it can't really be helped i guess.

To the OP, you are thinking very foolishly. Let me tell you, you never think it will happen to you or someone you love untill it actually does.

You should be as careful with your health etc as possible. You may live till 90 or die tomorrow, but regardless, you should never be careless with your life or anybody elses for that matter.

Dont act as if you have no control over it though. You will die, but why would you want to speed up the process.

Meh, so many things to consider in a lease vs buy decision. To make a blanket statement that one is better then the other is stupid. For those who say one over the other, look up "net advantage of Leasing" or "NAL".

It's more about the principle. Not paying China would cause an uproar across the world and set a precedent that would send foreign markets into chaos.

Out of the 16.7 trillion dollar debt the US has, China owns roughly about 1.2 trillion of it. That is pretty substantial.

Remember though, being in debt has been part of American history. The only time America was free of debt was back under the presidency of Andrew Jackson. He wiped out our debt, but, sadly two years later, we had a 6 year long economic depression (it was the second longest depression suffered by this country, second to that of the great depression).


This...kind of. More then just the principle. There isn't really too much China could do, i.e. force. But they wouldn’t need to, U.S.A would fuck itself by doing that. It would de-value the U.S dollar beyond anything they are doing now which is just raising the debt ceiling.
 I think it would have a similar effect as just printing more money without actually going into debt. The U.S dollar would be worthless. Look at Germany post war, Japan a few decade ago. This kind of thing has been done plenty of times before, nothing new. When Germany were just printing money after the war it was literally declining in value by the minute, people had to be paid three times per day because by the end of the day it would be worth significantly less then what it was in the morning. At its worst 1 US Dollar bought like 4 billion mark (or what ever the currency was then). Insane.
I think something like this would happen...I cant imagine they would just tell China to go jump though lol.

Impossible to do my work. Tried several times, everyone always told me "you didn't give it enough time". Well, I cannot afford to be dumb guy for >7 days straight now that I pay bills with the shit that lies between my ears.

1kg chicken and 100gr of rice is what I do now. It works but I can't afford to binge that often or that hard obviously. I have more energy during my workouts etc. Just enough carbs to live by. Not by the book exactly but oh well, it's still like 1300 calories, lol.

This. Laugh so hard when people say ohh you just need to stick it out and suck it up and suffer blah blah blah. Yea, try telling your boss the report you just wrote or the calculations you have submitted are dribble because you are on a low carb diet so you can get "shredded"

For those of us living in the real world with bills to pay and not working some trivial manual labor job that crap just doesn't fly.

I am a libertarian, and the government has been stepping into private agreements between two parties for centuries. This is nothing new except an industry that's not known for having a voice has organized to try to have one. They are to be commended. They figured it out, bodybuilders haven't. Bodybuilding related.

To me this is not just about McDonalds or the fast food industry, its about minimum wage workers period. And no it would not put unskilled workers out of work. It makes those jobs Americans wouldn't do before that would go to illegals much more valuable to Americans.

Completely disagree

You need to check your facts. Every time there has been a significant increase to the minimum wage there has been a correlating rise in unemployment. This is FACT, please do some research. Also worth noting is that every time minimum wages have been increased in the US resulting in a rise in unemployment there is a disproportionate rise in unemployment in blacks compared to any other group. Also FACT. So the negative effects are concentrated on the groups that these stupid increases are intending to help the most in the first place.

Minimum wage laws are well intentioned no doubt, but don't deliver.

Also, You claim that these mega corporations can afford it, and of course just looking at their profits year after year clearly it seems they could absorb these extra costs with no ill effect, but you're not looking at the big picture. Implementing too higher minimum wages on corporations make them far less competitive, especially corporations where the majority of their workforce are low skilled. These companies make mega profits no doubt, but there are so many other things you are not considering.

These are publicly traded companies, who not only have to compete for the consumers business but also compete in capital markets to attract investors. A company, especially a large one will always require ongoing funding, and there is only so much debt it can take on. Therefore it requires capital investment i.e. me and you buying shares. If you increase minimum wage, it WILL have an effect on the bottom line of a company that has predominately low skilled workers i.e. McDonald's. Why, if i can see profits reducing, a lower return on investment etc would I go and invest my money in that company. Why would investment funds and superannuation funds invest their members money in those companies? they wouldn't. They have now just become less competitive and in turn are losing capital investment. They have less money to expand and grow and in turn they wont be able to deliver a product of the same quality at the same price.

All this being said, you haven't even considered how much harder it would be on small business, let along large corporations to absorb increases in minimum wages.
10  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: test p vs test e question for those who did them both on: August 04, 2013, 05:27:43 AM
No different really. Maybe testp a bit more acne. Get gyno, bit of bloat from both but just take anti-e and its fine. I dont even bother with testp anymore, only enanthate regardless if I am trying to add or lose. One thing I have noticed is that the side effects (water retention and gyno) are no different from 250mg to 500mg test yet the gains I see on 500mg as apposed to 250mg are two fold. Only if i drop down to 125mg of test a week do i not get any sides. When I am on 250mg a week I can maintain my strength and size but dont look all that great yet still have a puffy face and gyno if i dont use an anti-e however if i bump up to 500mg (keep in mind no other compounds) I look twice as good, more vascular, pumped and hard but no extra sides. Cant go over 500mg though or I have to use too much anti-e and skin gets too dry from this. 500mg test and 600 eq a week is my blast these days. Haven't tried tren yet but possibly this summer i will give it a go just scared of getting acne. Holding water has never been a big issue for me, only gyno. I think it has a lot to do with structure also which is just common sense really. Taller, bigger built guys with broad shoulders seem to be able to smash test and not look like a bloated whale but anyone under 6foot should stick to moderate test and high anabolics. Sounds dumb but just what I have noticed.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 20% of men get all women and women always want to trade up in marriage on: July 19, 2013, 10:39:33 PM
Agree most women are whores but I don't agree with the high standards thing. I see so many hot young girls with such losers. And i mean, ugly, scrawny emo guys that dont have a cent to their name. I think it has something to do with women not wanting to be with someone as hot or hotter then them because they are so scared the guy will cheat or get more attention then them.

But this article, it has a lot of truth to it but i cant understand why women would want to be like this. What is the point in being with someone you don't even find attractive? are they so scared of being alone?

12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Galeniko please grace us with your nutritional strategy on: June 11, 2013, 03:40:47 AM
dude your traps are striated. lol. that's ridiculous. but you can't walk 2 feet in Australia according to 'James' without bumping into a guy as lean as that. it's an epidemic he says. Cheesy

here's the problem and here's where James shows his ignorance and lack of experience yet feels the need to diminish your accomplishments. there is a WORLD of difference between 7-8% which is what he prolly sees with frequency- someone can acheive that percentage just by exercising moderately, controlling their cals somewhat and doing a bit of cardio. it's not necessarily hard work but will take some time depending on what kind of shape you are in.

going from 7-8% down to the bf level galeniko is displaying here (4-5%) is NOT easy. there are not guys 'everywhere' this lean. this is another level of dedication and busting your ass to get this kind of conditioning. the word suffering comes to mind. it's only 3% or so difference. but it's the toughest 3% you'll ever lose.

so when I hear a guy like James spout off nonsense like that I just kinda gotta smile. cause not only is he not 5% he's not 7-8% either cause he would have tried in the past to get there and would have seen how hard it is. i can also tell he doesnt train that hard either for the same reasons. I doubt he's even 10% so we'll just disregard his opinions as non-valid when it comes to an educated discussion on rapid militant fat loss.

so that being said heres what is problematic for even most guys who train and diet- they fight and fight and fight to get to this kind of conditioning. and they manage to hold it for what, a day? gal has been within 2 weeks of this shape for the past 2 years! but I bet there's tons of guys who 'diet' on 1800-2400 cals in this board right now reading this. why haven't you looked like this for the past 2 years, instead of on just one day? why are you having such. hard time now achieving this type of conditioning? ask yourself those questions, sit back and re evaluate your dieting strategy. how many years have you been following your 2k cal diets? how many minutes do you spend doing cardio? what do you look like today? are you always seeming to be 'dieting'? how many times in your life have you been in the condition gal has displayed and for how many days (I'm not talking 6% here kids. I'm talking 4-5. I'm sure there's guys reading this who are 6. ever been this lean? for how long?)  what is all this telling you? what you are doing IS NOT OPTIMAL.

if you want to continue banging your heads hoping that one day you'll magically wake up shredded after YEARS of doing the same things, following the same 2k cal diets go ahead. it's your business. but it's because your following this thread should tell you your diets are not optimal and in 2-3 years down the road your still going to look the same, still banging your heads. I don't even care anymore to be honest with what you do. what irks me is the resistance to this method. you fuckers haven't held this type of conditioning for more than one day in your lives and struggle to get there and prolly walk around all year long at 8-10% or better but yet have the audacity to put down the validity of this method all the while having never tried it, all based on the fact you got lean once for a show. lol .

but such is life I suppose. nobody wants to be wrong. there. a big payoff in 'being right' that's why it's do hard to give up what you know, cause fuck me, heaven forbid you admit there something out there better than what you are doing. lol

but no. it doesn't work. your way is so much better.

you can all return to your previously scheduled uneventful boring long diets. this message has been brought to you by the creators of the 'galeniko-no one method'. Cheesy

Hahah you should take a break from bodybuilding and learn to read.

Go back and read my posts (maybe a few times) again, until it starts to sink in.

Here is a tip, respond to what was ACTUALLY posted, instead of what you wanted to be posted/implied just so you have an excuse to start an argument.

Its like speaking with a f.ucking pre-schooler  Roll Eyes

13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Galeniko please grace us with your nutritional strategy on: June 09, 2013, 09:22:36 PM
not sure if james knows, but getbig knows , the galeniko guy has been in very close to competition shape for 2and half years straight, ever since dieting down from the famous fatleniko pic.

sure , this is what you see every day everywhere, its an epidemic,in austraila where james lives, just nowhere else in thewhole world,must be thegood weather there Roll Eyes

so yeah here we have a guy who asks questions on how to what this and that, but he knows better anyway.

heres layed out ,almost everything, how you get into the shape as quick and effective as possible, and how you keep it,while getting away with eating icecream,chokolate and whatver you want, but james knows its nothing special, its an epidemic of galenikos where he lives, its just that the recipe how to do it hasnt crossed hiw path yet.

oh and noone, hes the other one who does exactly the same thing,pretty much and stays in that shape at all times, lays experiences worth more than a dcade of try and fail attempts until figuring things out, and james sees an epidemic.

oh brother Grin using the term epidemic.insanity.
shozzo fuck off to your alc thread, where you belong,its been moved just for andbecause of you. choke on semen-alc liqor you clown.

oh and the interment fasting method has fuck all to do with this diet.

Hahah classic. Maybe its time you eat a sandwich or something, clearly you have trouble understanding a simple question...retard.  Wink

I like how you use the word "epidemic". Makes out something to be quadruple of it's actual seriousness.

Yes, low carb diets suck, they will give you burst of energy at times, and make you feel like complete shit as well.

It's a means to an end, mainly being super fast results.

I think supplementing with the four basic electrolytes is essential.

Calcium, potassium, magnesium, and sodium.

Thats why its in inverted commas, not my word, thats what they refer to it as on the news over here lol. Serious though, so many guys in their 20's using a ton of gear just to look good at a music festival, none will ever step foot on stage or have any desire too.

In a way its good because everyone here in Australia is so open about it now, kids in the gym talk about their stack like they were discussing the best protein or creatine brand to use.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Galeniko please grace us with your nutritional strategy on: June 08, 2013, 04:46:22 PM

he did answer your question you just didn't pay attention or it wasn't the answer you wanted to hear.

if you want to get itno shape it isnt going to be easy. if it was easy everyone would look like galeniko. how many guys you see walking around like that every day? try none. if it was easy everyone would be peeled like that. but its not. theres going to be something in the cost/benefit analysis that isnt all benefit.  

were giving you the fastest most efficient way to get shredded here. we didnt say anything about fun, enjoyable or not needing to sacrifice something for it.

mental commitment to this is the first and most important step, if you cant commit to it mentally, or are worried about 'what if's' and not being prepared for that trade off then maybe another method would be more to your liking. why? cause your not ready mentally for this. all that matters is getting peeled. thats it. failure is not an option. you supply the mindset, the system supplies the results.

No, he didn't really answer the question. I don't think either of you actually understood the question.

I didn't ask how to stick to a diet, where you get the motivation from etc etc, this diet is not that hard, stop trying to make it seem like you are conquering cancer or something its ridiculous. It was just a simple question, when on a low carb diet, is there anything that anyone does to get over the whole "brain fog". If the answer is nothing, then fine, you don't know of anything that helps, that's cool. I'm guessing you work maybe construction or something that doesn't require a lot of mental focus for long periods of time?

And secondly, to be honest i see people like Galeniko a lot these days. Here in Australia where i am, it seems the current generation are the "steroid generation" every second guy i see in their 20's are geared up for a festival or for the clubs, it is getting out of control. They have actually done 3 or 4 "special news reports" on the "epidemic" already this joke.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Galeniko please grace us with your nutritional strategy on: June 08, 2013, 03:33:00 AM
low carb and no carbs isnt the same, but comeon, i did them both, whats this mean how do you cope with it?

how do you cope with no food while sleeping?

itjust happens.

noone said its easy,its only simple.

do you think on top of whats adviced,some 200gramms extra carbs would make that much a diference and help you?

its been discussed on this very page and the previous one how todeal with it.

hm, who merged this thread btw?can we atleast have the same thread title?galeniko nutritional strategy

btw, cswol, you morbidly obese fatso,you very quiet,did your finger become too fat to type on a keyboard?seen this?


No, that wasn't my question. I didn't ask how you cope with no carbs or low carbs, sticking to a low or no carb diet is easy, after a few days you have no appetite anyway and its very easy to stick to I don't know what the fuss is about to be honest. I asked how you can focus on intellectually demanding tasks when on very little carbs, it has nothing to do with will power or any of that nonsense. ECA helps to an extent, so does coffee, but not enough. What do you do for work?
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Galeniko please grace us with your nutritional strategy on: June 07, 2013, 09:53:17 PM
Galinko and others who go with the more extreme diets, how do you cope at work? My job is sitting in front of a computer all day so i don't need a lot of energy but I need to be able to focus and concentrate for long periods and often on complex things. I find this is pretty hard to do when on low a low carb diet, my mind just goes "foggy". Any tips to avoid this? coffee only works for so long.

I'm not saying I agree with them, merely stating facts.

Truth is, I never vote.

I would rather devote my time and energy to things other than some limp dick politicians views on how we should live.

Well that's even more reason why you should be voting for right wing candidates, that is largely the right wing philosophy - minimal government and keeping the fuck out of peoples lives without imposing nonsense ideologies of how they think people should live.

Watched the video...nonsense. Blame the banks, blame the rich....people are so clueless as to the truth, stop trying to make out as if it were some massive conspiracy. Plenty of people warned of a financial collapse for years before it happened, go back and read the papers and it is all there for years. It was never a secret. Blame stupidity that's all it is. What erks me is when these types of stories will say "the end of capitalism, capitalism has failed us or something like that lol America is not a true capitalist economy, i don't think any country in the world is truly Capitalist. America is almost fascist, that's the problem.

That is more then enough to make your morbidly obese. You are delusional.

BS would depend on age, height, weight, exercise etc. Hence my First question

In all seriousness,yes if you were not exercising i agree 4000 cals would make you a fat pig pretty quick. But Ache looks like a pretty big framed dude naturally and fairly tall and still seems young and i assume he trains hard therefore thought it would take a bit more then that to get fat. Don't get me wrong i would of expected pudgy just not that much (no offence)

Now if he trains like a typical permabulker and rests 10 mins between sets and never did cardio then i can understand a little easier
