I clicked on this thinking I would see the RX Forums in first place.

I don't think this could be strictly be called a guitar solo - but it's remarkable nonetheless.

And of course, the incredible Tommy Emmanuel...

Ha, ha... Does he expose all the Crabtree's?

Can't say he does really. He's mentioned about Shirley not being particularly fond of kids despite being the kiddies' favorite. But he's obviously a big fan of the classic British wrestling style (his working style in the ring shows this) and his interviews with Johnny Saint and Rollerball Rocco are terrific.

Colt Cabana's The Art of Wrestling is a great podcast too.

He interviews some amazing guests - especially if you are a fan of British wrestling from the 70's and 80's.

"Fags" is British slang for cigarettes.

P.S. - For the guys that mentioned Darker Than Amber, someone has put up a super clean english copy of it. It's a tough film to find, so if anyone wants to see it -

Thanks man. I've heard that Dennis Lehane is writing the screenplay for a new Travis McGee movie - produced by Leonardo DiCaprio. I hope to god that DiCaprio hasn't cast himself as McGee...

Who could forget the great William Smith. The absolute best bad ass movie villain actor of them all.

Interesting.

I was born there but grew up in Oz. I'm back once a year though and know my around well enough. I would never have thought they'd be so easy to get a hold of.

Are they not considered in the same class as the other drugs by the authorities?


As long as the amount found on you is small enough to be considered for your own personal use, the authorities don't give a shit. In 20 years of living here, I've never heard of anybody being jailed for supplying gear.

Recreational drugs and especially narcotics are an entirely different matter however...

Swedish Man Dies After Having Sex With Hornet’s Nest

A man in Sweden has died after trying to have sex with a hornet's nest on his farm outside Ystad.

The 35-year-old, known only as Hasse, had 146 sting marks on his body, including 54 to his genitals, News Sweden said.

His body was found by a neighbour, who said Hasse was so swollen he initially mistook him for a whale carcass.

Hasse was unconscious when he was found but died an hour later from the injuries he sustained.

Neighbour Bertil Ståhfrääs said he called over to his neighbour to ask what he was doing: "At first [I thought he was lying there by] of choice, so I called 'Hasse' to ask what the hell he was doing.

"I walked up to the body and then I recognised his tattoo on his neck.

"I have never in my life seen such a swollen pelvic bone. It hid the whole package [and] the scrotum was enlarged. Right now it feels heavy and unreal. We did not talk very often, but he was still my neighbour."

An autopsy of Hasse's body showed semen on some of the dead wasps and a number of the victim's pubic hair was found at the entrance of the nest. His fingerprints were also found on the nest, leading the police to believe he had been trying to have sex with the hornet's nest when he was stung to death.

"To attempt to have intercourse with a hornet's nest is a very bad idea," Siv During Livh, a psychologist and expert on sex fantasies told the news website.

"I don't even think about the pain he must have suffered both within himself [from his fetish] and incurred by the wasp attack."

Hornet stings are more painful than typical wasp stings because of their venom. They can also sting multiple times.

The stings are not normally fatal to humans unless a person is allergic to their venom, in which case they can go into anaphylactic shock.

I've only ever met one person who's worked in a genuinely recession proof industry. She was a sales rep for a company that made ball bearings of all things. And they've never, ever had a bad year for sales. Forget your IT positions that need constant upgrading of skills. Get in on selling the most unsexy product of all - but a product that will always be in constant demand. She admitted that it was ridiculously easy to meet her targets every year. It's just something that no one ever thinks of as a career.

Sounds like a scary place.

Actually it wasn't. It could be a bit intimidating for newcomers at first but if you became a regular and trained hard, the older members would pretty soon accept you. After a couple of weeks there I knew I had been accepted when they started insulting me! As for the guys who worked as bouncers, like most genuinely tough men they didn't need to prove it by pushing people around in the gym. (They had plenty of opportunities to prove themselves during their working hours!) My max benchpress went up 50lbs in my first month training there - I suspect purely from the pyschological effects of training in a place where everyone trained hard and heavy. Next time I'm back home in Dublin, I'll try and get a workout in this 'new' Hercules Gym but I've heard that in order to train there you have to be introduced by an existing senior member.

I have posted pictures of the Ground floor last time, now it's time to show you guys some of the upper floor.
The Hercules Gym has been around since 1935, needles to say this gym has a lot of Charisma and a long History of Weightlifting.
It is in fact a Powerlifting/Bodybuilding and Wrestling Club with a Committee.
I have read that shit Gold Gym is pulling and thought I share some images of a gym I consider a jewel, a dying breed.

Stark, I was a member of Hercs way back in 1882/83 when it used to be located down near Smithfield Market. If anything it's gone all upmarket now by comparison. I have vivid memories of the incredible hardcore atmosphere and the real Dub characters who used to lift there. There were a couple of mornings when I was the first one down there and I had to pick up the keys from the 'caretaker' who lived in one of the council flats near by. The first time I did it, he warned me to bang the door real loud before i open it. When I asked him why, he told me it was to scare off the rats! he wasn't kidding - one morning I forgot to do just that and opened the door to be greeted by the sight of some of the biggest, ugliest rats I've ever seen (until I came to Singapore that is). It's possible that they were more scared of me than I was of them - but unlikely!

Another 'fond memory' was the shower which was the darkest, blackest, slimiest, most disgusting thing this side of Calcutta. Amazingly, there was never a case of athlete's foot ever caught there: probably because no fungus could ever survive that environment...

Hercules was a fantastic place to train and produced some of Ireland's best weight lifters, powerlifters and bodybuilders... and some of the toughest, hardest bouncers in Dublin. I moved to Hercs from Tony Quinn's, which itself had produced a couple of good bodybuilders. The first thing I noticed about Hercs was that EVERYBODY lifted HEAVY, even the little guys. By comparison, if you could bench 200lbs at Tony Quinn's, you were considered 'hardcore'.

Thanks for reminding me about possibly the best gym I ever trained in!
