Yep, that's the nature of the high-income beast.

If you're in management, a lot of management 'skills' are transferable into other industries.

I'm not in management and theoretically my skill set should be transferable (I could work for myself) but much of the ability to maintain and serve my current client base (along with attract new ones) is tied to my current situation. Nothing is impossible but it's difficult to change, particularly when you're working 12 + hours a day just maintaining what u have.

Get another job?

In an ideal world. However, extraordinarily difficult to find something that pays comparable or better and I have many expenses tied to current level of income.

Once a year I get together for a weekend with the other people I work with (on my level and above) for our annual retreat at a luxury hotel. We all hate each other but it is unsaid and we all smile and pretend that we are all collegial and friendly. Also unsaid is that our biggest competitors in our business are not at other businesses but within our own business as we would all steal each other's clients at the first opportunity. As soon as we get back to our offices on Monday it's back to the usual backstabbing, double dealing, etc. None of us are billionaires by any stretch but most everyone at our level is doing pretty well, relatively speaking.

It is a miserable life.

Bullshit. You know I started reading bb mags in the 80s. I particularly remember an article about some Swedish amateur bodybuilders going over to Venice to find the "secrets" of the pros. Know what all the pros told them? They all said it's all about diet and supplements, you could train in whatever way you wished, it didn't matter much.

Plenty of guys train hard today, plenty of guys push hard year round, eating on the clock, training and drugging heavy year round. Many of those fantastic looking old-school bodybuilders took time off, smoked weed, rec drugged and chased bitches between shows. I doubt it was any more hardcore back then (even in the gym).

This is true. I read an interview w/ Scott Wilson who was a top 70s and early to mid 80s pro, where he said he and others would only train three or four months a year and still win shows. That would never happen today.

Try not to dwell on it. It's never too late to change.

Cars are a poor indicator of wealth.

EXTENSIONS.... Grin

And? U still have to pay your quarterly estimates to feed ZOG.

Tons.  But they don`t really bother anyone for the most part like they do in other places.  I like them actually.  They are always smiling and happy.

You like docile, non-chosen types to do the dirty work.
11  Getbig Alternative Boards / V Board - General Random Threads / Re: Junior Poll: Stay or Go? on: April 15, 2014, 04:31:52 PM
Hows it honest when most of them are here illegally doing it for next to nothing, thus breaking the law?  

What about the people who hire them? No one hires them, they don't work.

Let's talk about fractional reserve banking and the Federal Reserve. That's where you'll find real criminals.
12  Getbig Alternative Boards / V Board - General Random Threads / Re: Junior Poll: Stay or Go? on: April 15, 2014, 04:25:33 PM
And Cholos like to mow yards.

Honest work is foreign to your kind.

Dorian approved.

Moneylenders stick together.

Drug addicts

Yup.

How did Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, etc., ever succeed w/out this stuff?

bodybuilders should hire me as a photographer

Outed.

Just another gimmick device. If it had more mass appeal, Tony Little would be doing an infomercial for it.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Did Dorian Yates say the Holocaust was fake? on: April 15, 2014, 08:18:41 AM
I re-watched Dorian's interview on London Real last night. Some BS but obvious that Dorian is a smart, crazily driven dude. Not on the level of Arnold but props to him nevertheless.

# 2

In his prime he had a better build than the other two put together.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Women who lift...are they insane? on: April 14, 2014, 11:15:10 AM
Lifting is fine. No gear though.

Agreed. Any woman who uses male hormones is insane.
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: BREAKING NEWS: Flex Wheeler is FREEMASON now, lol on: April 12, 2014, 01:09:50 PM
Looks like he's working as the men's room attendant at that lodge.
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: RIP - Vince Comerford on: April 12, 2014, 12:55:08 PM
He does look and sound like an old junkie in the video someone posted above where he's being interviewed by the two gay dudes.

The ultimate Shitzo attention-whoring thread would be if he faked his death. Oh wait.

Have u found a higher paying job than your last one?

25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Hossein Rezazadeh VS Weak Bodybuilders on: April 12, 2014, 05:50:14 AM
Still boring, but much more impressive than powerlifting. Either you lift it over your head or you don't. No 20 fat guys in old sweats standing around "spotting" you.
