1  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Was "onlyme" misdiagnosed by his doctors? on: January 18, 2007, 10:29:55 PM
I've been doing some research on the brown recluse spider, AKA Loxosceles reclusa. According to onlyme, he was bit in his sleep by a brown recluse spider while living in Los Angeles, California. There's only one problem with this story: there are virtually no brown recluse spiders living in California. In fact, there have only been 10 confirmed sightings of brown recluse spiders in California in the past 40 years, and they were all brought in from out of state. This spider lives almost exclusively in the central midwest, from Nebraska down to Texas and over to western Georgia. Los Angeles is about 1000 miles removed from the areas inhabited by the brown recluse. See this map: http://spiders.ucr.edu/images/colorloxmap.gif

According to Rick Vetter of the UC Riverside Department of Entomology, thousands of people in California have been misdiagnosed as having been the victim of a brown recluse spider. This is backed up by the website of the California Poison Control System (http://www.calpoison.org/public/spiders.html), which states that "Spider experts across the state agree that the true brown recluse spider does NOT live in California, but is native to Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma and Mississippi". It further states that "People bitten by an unseen spider sometimes blame the brown recluse spider because their bite resembles a brown recluse spider bite. However, there are a number of other spiders and insects, as well as other medical conditions, that are capable of producing tissue wounds of similar appearance, but these are usually of a lesser severity". In many cases, necrotic skin lesions are blamed on the brown recluse, despite mountains of evidence that there are no brown recluse living in California.

The evidence against "onlyme" being the victim of a brown recluse is even stronger when you realize that the brown recluse is a very docile creature, and that they are always found in large groups. A group of students in Oklahoma collected 60 brown recluse spiders in only 7 minutes. A woman in Kansas found 2,055 brown recluse spiders living in her home, collected them by hand, and sent them to a university. Neither she nor her two kids were ever bitten by a spider. Millions of people in the midwest live around brown recluse spiders and are never bitten by them.

There is really only one reasonable conclusion that can be made. Onlyme suffered from some unknown illness, and was misdiagnosed by his doctors. He probably stood a greater chance of being struck by an asteroid than being bit by a brown recluse.

No amount of training is going to change your God-given muscle shape. It is a physiological impossibility. I've done preacher curls and concentration curls for years, but my biceps still have terrible shape. I've done hack squats every other workout for the past decade, but my quads still have lackluster sweep despite measuring nearly 30" in circumference. Training for "shape" is simply the biggest scam in all of weight training. It's called GENETICS. If you aren't one of the people who was born with aesthetic muscles, you will NEVER look like a champion bodybuilder. There is really no way around it.

That's a VERY general rule of thumb that schmucks in the fitness industry will tell you.   You can get growth from low reps with heavy weight too, the key is to mix up the rep ranges/volume to keep the body from adapting to a set routine.

Watch out, kicker. Mr. Intensone attends four training seminars a year. You can't argue with credentials like that. Roll Eyes

the above post details the released document which show we did exactly what I said we did.  Please do your research before making statements.

Read your own article, dumbass. The U.S. government licensed the sale of dual-use items that have both civilian and military applications. Lots of dangerous chemical and biological agents have legitimate civilian applications. For example, Zyklon-B was used as a pesticide before the Nazis started gassing people with it.

American firms didn't send any actual weapons to Iraq. That was left to companies in Singapore, The Netherlands, Germany, Britain, and India. You should be blaming those governments for not having tighter export control laws. In fact, many of these countries are still exporting dual-use items to Iran.

I wouldn't say that Mississippi has a part of the flag that is similar.

A part of the state flag looks straight like the confederate flag. Please enlighten me on the differences between the original and the one appearing on the Mississippi state flag.



BTW, your comparison to the swastika is a good one IMO. It shows what the problem is all about.

Even if the confederate flag in itself isn't evil or picked to represent racist values, it may be a symbol for most people of apartheid and even slavery in the USA.

Think about it for a moment: In the confederate states, slavery was allowed.

That flag represents the confederate states.

Anyone can claim that the confederate state flag is about being anti-government et al. But why not pick an anarchy flag or something that can't be related to racism? Huh

IMO, it's an easy choice.

-Hedge

Slavery was allowed in the northern states throughout the war, and the Confederacy didn't kill millions of people like the Nazis did.

All discipline, dedication, genetics, diet and hard work x 20 years.  Drugs are about 5%.  Only a small jealous pussy would say any different in my opinion.

So you're saying a genetically gifted individual could get 95% as big as Ronnie without drugs? Roll Eyes

16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Brutal 4 inch leg presses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on: January 14, 2007, 11:21:12 AM
Most of these guys who claim they can leg press huge poundages are doing quarter reps at best. If they put the seat back and lowered the weight until their calves hit their hamstrings, they would have to cut their weights in half. I once saw a guy in my old gym who could squat 500 for reps, but could only do around 800 lb for full reps on an old Cybex machine.

18  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Islamic Terrorist Nuke NY City...what would happen next? on: January 13, 2007, 11:38:38 PM
There is no way a terrorist group would have the resources to build a nuclear weapon on their own. Any act of terrorism involving nuclear weapons would almost certainly be interpreted as an act of war by a foreign government. All hostile nations possessing nuclear technology (Iran, North Korea, Pakistan) would be reduced to rubble in short order. Massive aerial bombardments involving tactical nuclear weapons would kill tens of millions in these countries alone, and leave hundreds of millions starving and homeless. Refugees would pour into China, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, precipitating unprecedented social turmoil. Any nation that refuses to cooperate with the US would be expelled from the UN and subject to crippling financial and economic sanctions. Congress would amend the Constitution, giving the Federal government the authority to strip the citizenship of anyone not born in the US. All illegal immigrants would be deported. Emergency powers would be declared. The US, Russia, Japan, and Europe would put aside their differences and form a military alliance that could rule the world with an iron fist. A new global order would emerge.

21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Ronnie DENIES posting those RACIST MESSAGES ON PROSOURCE!! on: January 09, 2007, 10:11:24 AM
I hope not.  I have a lot of respect for the amazing physique Ronnie built but would certainly loose respect for him if he is making racial excuses.  In the 50s, 60s and even 70s....that excuse certainly could be valid.  Not now.  Judges are from varied ethnicities as are competitors and fans.  The "white man" is not keeping anyone down in BBing.  Winners from all races, and Ronnie has certainly been rewarded yr after yr for his physique.  This year he looked worse, there is no question on that.  An injury free and slimmed down Ronnie has a good chance to retake the title.  

There is a big stink when white people use racist remarks...we have to criticize everyone equally in this age for racism.  Thats the way to combat it over time....people mix and everyone treated the same.

But shootfighter, only around 70% of pro athletes are black! How can you not see the obvious racism? Roll Eyes

Blacks are the biggest racists around, but are the first to cry "racism" when a white man makes a harmless racial comment. Monster dishonesty and hypocrisy.

So while you sit on your fat ass eating cream pies and getting fatter, I'm making a name for myself, training bodybuilders, running a gym, doing guest posing, and living my life the way I want to. People who push the envelope will always have detractors, but you know I get so much positive feedback from the people that really matter, you guys just amuse me...

You look like a wolverine.
