This will get a consecvence somehow.

When so many waist so much time on nothing, the collective base knowledge will suffer.

The world will get stupider.

Very dangerous man and total fing psycho.

No muscles, shaved head, tatoos or any other "hard" man symbols makes him blend in and people trust him.

People let their guard down for that "nice young man" and BOOM youre dead.

Like I said, very dangerous man.

RIP DA !

How does it work in the hospital do the doctors tell you that "you are gonna die very soon" or do they keep you in the dark saying "we are doing everything we can"

It also gives some legitimasy to the product, like it is so strong and powerful that one can OD on it. Hence giving the illusion that it really works.

Bmi between 25-30 aint really fat. Especially an older person with a Bmi of 28 compared to  20 will look much more healthy. Those skinny old People look like concentration camp prisoners. Better to sport healthy SS guard looks.

Interesting, how much was the content changed ?

MDs problem is that their layout is very unprofessional compared to FLEX. The first time buyers those who just started their bodybuilding phase are probably more likely to buy FLEX over MD. Still Ill imagine that fewer and fewer first timer buy a BBing mag at all.

Then they are left with lifetimefans like Mayor and Howard, and that cant be more than what ? 5000 subscribers around the world ?

They probably put a woman on the cover to check if it will sell more, personally I doubt that in this day and age anyone will buy a magazine because of a woman.

Either way I really doubt those mags are gonna survive as print media. Smartphones and Wifi changed everybodys media habits virtually overnight.

And its also weird and creepy buying those mags "so you like looking at those naked men ?"

Took it in the cornhole like a trooper, was sad the article went nowhere and didnt update where she was now.

Kinda cool that it is a little mystery  Cool

Nah, I`m sure she is ok. Guessing she changed her name and appearance and moved to another state. She probably lives incognito with her family somewhere.

Well...I kind of stumbled upon this story. Good read !

"The Legend Of Heather I Deepthroat: An Incomplete Story Of America’s Greatest Porn Star"

The name Heather Harmon isn’t mentioned in the same breath as Linda Lovelace, Jenna Jameson or Ron Jeremy. Yet she’s a porn star so deeply ingrained in the millennial male culture, that if you slip the reference into any hetero conversation, the remark is always met with a nod of appreciation and a grin of reminiscence. Arriving on the scene nearly a quarter century after “The Golden Age of Porn,” Harmon didn’t spring from the Pool Boy, Private “I” fantasy plots of the San Fernando Valley. Instead, she worked a webcam, a deep throat and her Southern charm to make the moniker “Heather I” a household name. Then she was gone.

Before the age of high speed internet, porn production required a lot more resources – equipment costs, talent, distribution and a small stipend for the “Fluffer”. With such a high barrier to entry, the industry was run by heavy hitter production companies who churned out enough goods to satiate man’s quest for loosely sewn plotlines and intercourse. But then the internet came around and revolutionized the industry. There was a wider range of acceptable production quality, distribution was an upload and consumption was a click. No longer was smut exclusive to the x-rated shops by the off ramp, or your weird uncle’s cornucopia of mags and Polaroid’s. Men who are today in their mid-20s and thirties, who came of age during this transformation, can remember first visiting websites like Sublime Directory and The Hun. Each URL brought an infinite buffet of salacious videos and pics. And within this buffet, no category of smut became more plentiful than the Amateur genre.

Between 1999 and 2000, during the climax of this industry shift, a young couple started doing webcam shows on an adult site called iFriends.  The wife’s name was Heather, a lab technician in some undisclosed southern location, and the husband, Jim Harmon, was a forklift operator. They’d bought a $400 computer from a neighbor, and a webcam, and began showcasing Heather’s recently discovered talent – deep throating. This skill needs no further explanation, other than that Heather didn’t seem to have a gag reflex, and Jim resembled a thoroughbred below the belt.
"Heather Brooke"

“Heather Brooke”

It wasn’t long before their iFriends’ shows acquired a cult following of sorts. Encouraged by the fanfare, Heather and Jim launched their own website in June of 2000 – ideepthroat.com. The site had twice-daily webcam shows and videos of Heather and Jim in various deep throating scenarios – on the road, in the bedroom, at the office. The films weren’t shot in exotic locations, and they didn’t follow the typical “here to fix your cable” plot lines. It was, in a sense, everyday life. In an early interview with the couple, they explained their incredibly simple approach, “We realized all we have to do is be honest, and nice, and we might be able to do okay”. And that unedited, cinema verite approach to felatio, coupled with Heather’s incredible looks and unique skill, catapulted them to internet fame.

The viral nature of the internet, the same characteristic that now launches cute kittens and Canadian kids into immediate stardom, is one of the main contributors to Heather and Jim’s success. The best videos would be passed along from one user to another, with a speed and reach that could never be paralleled offline. In porn, “pass along” used to be the physical act of stealing your father’s VHS and sharing it with that lucky kid in Bunk 7. Now it meant link sharing in forums and file sharing on networks like Kazaa. One of those files was a threesome that Heather did with a friend named “Brooke” – the filename appropriately labeled “iDeepThroat_-Heather_Brooke__RoomMate_-_threesome.mpg.” Fans misattributed Brooke’s name as Heather’s surname, and the alias stuck. It’s an anecdote that illustrates the power of the web – a 3-minute ménage-a-trois video led to millions wrongfully referring to their favorite smut star as “Heather Brooke.”

From 2000 to 2004, iDeepThroat.com was regularly updated and everyone from the porn addict to the casual consumer was familiar with Heather’s videos. But around 2005, the site’s content began to slow. It seemed as though Heather and Jim had taken a sabbatical. Unfortunately for their fans, that break soon looked more like retirement, and the deep throat queen was never heard from again. Many speculated the departure was due to the couple wanting to raise a family and use their newfound riches to start a fresh life. One forum post hints that Heather and Jim had two young children prior to starting their site. Perhaps as those offspring aged, and their oblivion receded, the couple saw a need to retire the webcam. In an early interview, the radio host asks Heather, “Does anyone ever recognize you in public?” Although the answer was “no”, it’s clear that things must have changed rather quickly. I often imagine a fan running up to Heather and Jim in the supermarket, a Boar’s Head kielbasa and black Sharpie in hand, asking for an autograph.

There was an insanely, almost frighteningly passionate forum post on AdultDVDTalk.com, about the legend of Heather Harmon. It started with the warning, “I’m feeling a bit nostalgic, so this is rather long,” and ended with the plea “Heather, if you read this. Please come back. We still need you.” Between that innocuous opener and closer were 1,200 words of intensely graphic adulation. Though slightly disturbing, it leaves one realizing that Heather and Jim were not only pioneers when it came to being at the forefront of online amateur pornography. They were visionaries as to where this medium could go. They had a community of devoted fanatics, a large audience of everyday fans and a webcam as an ATM. But the web was expanding rapidly and the devotion it would take to maintain their success and relevance would come at a cost. The second option seemed best. They took a Koufax-like departure, left on top, and remained immortalized by eccentric forum contributors and desperate writers like myself.

Heather and Jim’s videos are still out there. In fact, one clip has generated close to 19 million views on YouPorn.com alone. But they’re lost amongst the troves of clips that now populate the web. Today’s adolescent porn user has limited knowledge, or regard, for Heather and Jim. Nor can they remember a time when endless porn wasn’t a URL away. The same cannot be said for those youngin’s predecessors. Test Heather’s influence during your next barstool chat with a twenty or thirty-something companion. Give a brief mention, and you’ll undoubtedly get that look of acknowledgement. It’s the look fellow Bonesmen exchange to one another while sipping martinis at a State Department cocktail function. But for the non-protestant non-ivy-leaguers, we bond through something else – the shared appreciation of a deep throating queen.

A lot of the best jobs are filled in the informal job market. A friend or family member hooks them up, they brown nose their way to the top, etc. Rarely are people rewarded for working hard, applying for job postings and all that rat race BS. That's why people need to look out for themselves, diversify their investments and manage their finances as best they can.

There's a lot of money out there. You just need to know where to look. Working your ass off for years in hopes of a meager salary increase or promotion is not a fruitful endeavor. It's a bit of a shame, but hard work is rarely the path to success. People use these guys as stepping stones to further their careers and get by on handshakes, networking and clawing their way to success. That's why I don't put too much stock into one line of work and wait for a glorious, life changing promotion at my day job. It's just one means to an end.

Working hard is for ants.

"If you work hard you can be whatever you want"

"I would never be *whatever* without all the sacrifice and hard work"

BS propaganda fed to the ants. People talk their way to the top, not by hard work.

14  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: bill gates advise on: March 12, 2014, 09:39:28 AM
did he really say that?!  I doubt it - unless someone can confirm as I'm too lazy to try to search it in google to see if he really said it or someone is just claiming he did.

Makes no sense at all - many people are born poor in 3rd world countries with no hope or opportunity to become rich.  Sometimes they are even happier than those who do have money, as people tend to get accustomed to whatever they have and their overall level of happiness will usually be swayed by the non-financial parts of their life.

Dunno I saw a docu from Africa. When asked what they wanted for their kids, doctor or lawyer. No, they just wanted their kids to survive. Makes you think how hard life can be.

The work ants of the society are doing the work for rich and poor.

Taxes paid by work ants beeing used to pay the poor. The poor hate working, they like drifting around doing nothing and feel free.

The elite, the corporate guys and the politician hate traditional work they feel above work hours and morals. Sitting by the the desk for 8 hours straight they cant do it. They like moving around staying in 5 star hotels, chatting to people, going to meetings, "inspecting" franchises and divisions eating free fancy lunches. They dont think of it as work, cause it aint either. They love the high life, going charity dinners.

Work ants are the glue of society. They love to work. And have a strong working moral. They dont move around much, they travel the same route to work each day, shop at the same supermarket and eat at the same restaurant. It might not be exciting and joyful, but it is a low risk, comfortable life.

Yep. People have a poor person and worthless piece of shit mentality these days. Everyone wants to cross their arms, make stupid fucking frowny faces and don't want to work because of "disparity" and because billionaires make billions. What a bunch of stupid pieces of shit. They have no worth ethic whatsoever. They'll gladly take out $100-$200k in student loans though, rely in income assistance, welfares and subsidies and still pout all day. They don't understand that it's the tax dollars of the hard working folks that pay for it. They just have this privileged attitude and expect people to humor their masters degree in lesbian psychology and give them a 6 figure salary on the spot. I hate looking these fuckers in the eyes when I get my coffee at Starbucks. Worthless pieces of shit.

My grandparents came to this country with nothing and busted their asses their entire lives to give us a good foundation to start from. And my wife's parents came to Canada with literally a $20 bill and nothing else. Now all of us kids have homes, careers, educations and don't own hundreds of thousands in debt and back taxes like a lot of fuckers our age. They bitch and moan all day long but don't realize that there are people who wake up and their biggest concern is whether or not they'll eat today. Don't take this shit for granted, fuckers. You can go out and become millionaires, but instead people sit on the computers using their borrowed Wifi connection, pissed at the world and waiting for minimum wage to get raised to $20 an hour (as if it will solve any financial crisis whatsoever). I just can't stand the lazy fucks that I encounter on a daily basis. Good on the Getbiggers who work hard and relax hard. Nothing wrong with sitting back and feeling good after a hard days's work. But when you leach off of government assistance and complain 24/7, you deserve to be shot in the head so the rest of society can move forward without being anchored down.

Why do you write this here ?

Its about working less L E S S

No doubt hardworkers like yourself are the cornerstone of North-America, exploited by the people at the bottom and the top.

who pays the surfer bums rent? buys them food? going from dumb woman to dumb woman to support their lifestyle..

I'm a man... i'll pay for myself, thanks.

something called a 'work ethic' that seems to be lacking in these lazy fucking bums.

You wrote:  "working from paycheck to paycheck for somebody else alongside kids who are 20-30yrs younger than you" so I guess thats the surfer bum.

Other than that, are you so stuck in your mindset that you cant comprehend the work less, buy less, have more time mantra ? This whole " i'll pay for myself, thanks" argument got no meaning.

I get a feeling you think working a full week is a sacred duty, something holy.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: What's the point of working your ass off your whole life? on: March 11, 2014, 06:05:06 AM

I hear that and I can picture exactly where you'll be in 20years... driving an old car, renting an apt, and working from paycheck to paycheck for somebody else alongside kids who are 20-30yrs younger than you... depressed, bitter, and resentful of those who live the lives you wish you could, trying to justify your own laziness, lack of ambition, lack of forethought, and deep seeded fear of risk (that was probably handed down from your father).



For every happy, fit, ripped and tanned surfer bum out there I can give you 10 of the unhappy, unfit, two hours a day commuter, Type 2 diabetic, office worker types.

Not if they don't feel they need more time for whatever it is. If they feel they have adequate time to do whatever they enjoy and still work full time, then I guess they're happy. I know I personally wish I didn't have to work 40hrs week, but I do to support my family and have enough money for us to go do things with our free time.



I believe most people work a lot to buy toys because they are brought up that way and because society works in that way.

Its not like they make a conscious choice, should I work or explore, they just act on autopilot.
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: What's the point of working your ass off your whole life? on: March 08, 2014, 04:48:59 AM
Some people don't value time as much as you do. People have different priorities, some people don't enjoy having free time or living a slow life... some people do.

Its not one size fits all... some people look at what you do and think "why the fuck would I want to waste my time doing that, when I could be doing *insert whatever here*?"

Thats the point.,,, everyone has different ideas on what makes them  happy, and no 2 people are goign to agree.'
'
I personally enjoy a modest, easy going life, but I would never, ever want to backpack across Europe. Not my thing.

Im in Germany right now on business, and all I can think about is getting home to my wife.

Sure I get that.

But aint it a bit sad if a person doesnt even THINK that "I wish I had more time to *insert whatever here*" ?
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: What's the point of working your ass off your whole life? on: March 08, 2014, 04:32:16 AM
Hmmm... I dunno Kofo. From my perspective, it might be YOU missing the point?

Who is to say these things are mutually exclusive?

It absolutely is possible to work less, have more TIME to do stuff WITHOUT having to "settle" for less.

If all someone wants is a 42" that's fine, but why should someone "settle" for less than what they want if it is within their power to achieve it?

Let's look at it another way. What if someone said to you, what's the point of backpacking across Europe, seeing the 7 wonders of the world, scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef, or spending quality time finding sea shells on the beach with your little ones, ...when you can instead settle for seeing pictures in Condé Nast, or kissing your sleeping baby when you come home from work? If you settle for working yourself to the bone, never travel, or spend time with your loved ones, you'll at least have a few 60" flat screens to see footage of Machu Pichu, and you'll at least be able to own a 6,000 sf house?

Would YOU be willing to "settle". No you wouldn't, because its not what YOU want for your life is it?

I'll never understand why it is that when people decide what they want for their lives, ...they somehow expect everyone else to want the same thing, ...and somehow think there's something wrong with them if they don't.

If backpacking through Europe on a shoestring works for you... more power to you.
If someone has goals towards which they're both inspired & willing to work hard to achieve... more power to them

There's nothing wrong with hard work, ...unless one is able to achieve the same results by working smarter.

I dont really care about how other people live.

I simply honestly dont understand WHY people work to get a bigger TV, house and car. Whats so great about about that compared to having more TIME ?

It's gay only if you want it to be right?

One can only say that one enjoys work if he could do the job also for free.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: What's the point of working your ass off your whole life? on: March 08, 2014, 02:03:26 AM
Brilliant brainwashing by our corporate culture.

Magazines and TV all part of it to ensure they get advertising.

Nah, theyll inpire their kids with storys from their exciting life.
