Guardian: Thomas the Tank Engine is Racist Because the Evil Trains Pump Out Black Smoke
by Raheem Kassam 22 Jul 2014, 6:04 AM PDT

Every so often the Guardian disappears up its own arse. It's like that line from the Godfather from Peter Clemenza: "These things gotta happen every five years or so, ten years. Helps to get rid of the bad blood. Been ten years since the last one."

For the Guardian, these sorts of things happen every five days or so. Maybe 10. And today's is a corker. (http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jul/22/thomas-the-tank-engine-children-parents)

"...these trains perform tasks dictated by their imperious, little white boss, Sir Topham Hatt (also known as The Fat Controller), whose attire of a top hat, tuxedo and big round belly is just a little too obvious. Basically, he's the Monopoly dictator of their funky little island. Hatt orders the trains to do everything from hauling freight to carrying passengers to running whatever random errand he wants done, whenever he wants it done regardless of their pre-existing schedules.

"(For the record, all the "villains" on Thomas and Friends are the dirty diesel engines. I'd like to think there was a good environmental message in there, but when the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump out black smoke and they are all pumping out smoke it's not hard to make the leap into the race territory.)"

Great solid build. Why no blue stars though  Huh

Speak to Vince Basile, he will resolve the matter promptly for you.

Stavios had stars but he deleted his account.  It would be easy to get back

(assuming you would marry in the first place)

Would you

a) be OK marrying a woman with more muscle than you
b) be OK marrying a woman stronger than you
c) be OK marrying a woman outearning you
d) all of the above!

 Huh



Brandon Best (Gisong Xiongshou) married Dawn Allison back in 2010.  Brandon was a skinny martial artist (even smaller than Curt James) while Dawn was a IFBB Pro Female Bodybuilder.  I thought that it was a complete joke at the time and would not go past 6 months due to the differences in size


Fast Forward to 2014.  Dawn obviously helped put a lot of muscle on him and they are still together.  Never say never

I wonder if Goodrum had to post in the local papers that he isn't responsible for debts not in his name?  Perhaps he was cleaned out by his ex.

He really needs to ask the advices of Getbiggers to sort this mess out. He remains in Sylva....to get his ex back? Who knows.

No TV, phone, minimal furniture and saving coupons and stamps. The government surely has to help our hapless legend.

thats funny i said he was doing nothing all day long surfing on the internet and that vissy was the breadwinner, everything tends to prove that


Along with running my ecommerce and PT business, I also work a full time job.  I rarely surf the web but spend most of my time uploading CSV files and doing price changes.  I also process credit applications for people who want to get the 6 months no interest financing on their exercise equipment.

No, its not The Vince Goodrum Show......You're going to watch a guy short the Herbalife Stock By Billions Live On The Internet!!!



Activist investor Bill Ackman said that on Tuesday he would give "the most important presentation" of his career.

"You're going to learn why Herbalife is going to collapse. And that's a pretty strong statement. But this is the largest fraud public fraud in terms of scale, of countries involved, harm to people," he said on CNBC's "Halftime Report."

Ackman has been short Herbalife a maker of health shakes since late 2012.

Since that time, Ackman has waged a constant campaign against the company, arguing that it's an illegal pyramid scheme.

Now he's claiming that he's ready to deliver a final deathblow against the company.

Ackman will be unveiling an investigation into Herbalife's nutrition clubs. He says he has hundreds of hours of video, audio, and internal documents to support his claims.

"This will be the most important presentation that I have made in my career. So how's that for raising expectations? But we won't disappoint."

The presentation will be at 9:15 a.m. EDT.

He added that Herbalife's CEO, Michael Johnson, and his team are invited to the event.

"I want to make it very clear that Michael Johnson and his senior management team are welcome to come to the presentation. We'll be happy to sit them in the front row if they would like. We're happy to let them answer questions or even ask questions during the presentation," Ackman said.

We'll be covering it live.

Herbalife shares are down nearly 11%.

But I'm certainly not your enemy... why not discuss it on your radio show?


I discuss bodybuilding related topics on the show and my relationship has nothing to do with it.  I have to insure that when people come to Anabolic Mayhem that its not full of unrelated shit.

My guess, since he won't answer is ANYTHING of value in their old place VISSY owned, as he looks like he got everything!!
P.S.  Goodbum, you can get lots of FREE stuff on CRAIGSLIST... Smiley


Its a private matter.  Its of no certain to anyone.

Why would single man live in Sylva is there are "no real jobs around"? You seem to be proud of all the money you saved on bargains. Guess you have to save up for a TV.

15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Inquiry about gym equipment on: July 22, 2014, 04:12:14 AM
Definitely a foolish thing to do even if you have a workshop. Much, much cheaper to buy used equipment.

I can buy Chinese made gym equipment cheaper than I can buy the steel and parts.

I found that designing equipment took a few goes to get it right.

You obviously have never applied for a business loan. You need collateral to get a loan for a new business. Bank managers know that 80% of new businesses fail within 5 years and probably earlier.

If you don't own property I doubt you can get a business loan to set up a gym.


17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Goodrum showing the strain of missing Vissy publicly on: July 21, 2014, 07:07:44 PM
so white people are stupid right?  Smiley And black people "smarter"....  Roll Eyes You re definitely black.


We're all idiots in the eyes of the banks, credit card companies, and the 1%.  The only color that matters is green and they use race as a factor to give themselves an advantage for exploitation....no different than politicans
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Goodrum showing the strain of missing Vissy publicly on: July 21, 2014, 07:06:47 PM
This looks like public housing to me, or a $400 per month apartment to me.The Futon is a $150 Futon from Wal-mart .The lamps and book case look like it was purchased at Walmart aswell.The laptop, looks like one of those laptops you can but for $200.I forgot what brand it is, but they are small.We must not forget the curl bar, to get your swell on, lol.You can tell a serious bodybuider from a non serious bodybuilder.The non serious bodybuilder always has a curl bar in his living room or bedroom.
The non serious bodybuilder thinks I must have big arms,right?The serious bodybuilder doesnt have any weights at home.He realizes that if he favors a certain muscle like his arms .It will throw off his overall symmetry.Plus anybody with half a brain knows muscle grow during the resting period.Especially if they are natural.Oh yeah, Taking bee pollen is not conisdered naturall lol.Bee Pollen is highly anabolic.lolIt is more powerful then any steroid of HGH or IGF 1,LMAO


If it was public housing, it would have air conditioning and heaters which it didn't.  I had to do some work when I got in......its just that Sylva is a cheap place to live because there's no real jobs around here as the majority are minimum wage.  Its a tourist trap for people who are passing by to head to Cherokee to gamble.  The lamps I got at a liquidation outlet for 8 bucks...not bad considering that they retail for 50.  The futon is from Walmart and it was 169 and the bookshelf is 17 bucks which I have 2 of them.  

The laptop is an Acer Netbook that I got from a pawn shop 2 years ago for 90 bucks.  I just erased everything and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7.


The weights were just there because I was mopping the floor.  I keep my exercise equipment set up where the dining room table should be....don't need one anyway... Grin

The problem is you only know how to work the system to get food stamps, coupons and free shit, but when it comes to working the system to make real money you have no fucking clue.


And you have no fucking clue as to how any of these mechanisms work so let me educate your ass a little bit.

1.  Food Stamps are NOT TO FEED PEOPLE.  They are just a commodity that the government uses to keep the poor and impoverished under control and to prevent rioting and looting.  Keeps crime rates down as well

2.  Coupons are an advertising method to clear out soon to be expired food and/or to get people to come to their store.   I use coupons but I don't use the same ones that people get from newspapers....I simply write or nowadays email a company that I like this certain product but I "can't afford it" to which 95% of the time I get back a non-expiring manufacturer's coupon for that product which I use a printer to make copies of. 

3.  Free shit is a myth...you always pay for something one way or the other.


4.  You're a useless dick sock


Hope that helps

Seems the blacks have made all white credit bad.


No....whites are more reliable in paying and sticking to agreements no matter how lopsided and unfair it is and that's where the banks count on.

Fact is that demographics make all the difference in investing and whether a bank will make a loan.  If I opened a business in the ghetto, the bank would turn me down for a fitness center but approve me right away if it was a pawn shop or a liquor store.  Same applies for opening an Applebee's in a white neighborhood. 

People can sing and dance about equality but the truth is that we're all just a bunch of nigs, crackers, spics, and slopes to these credit card companies and they work with us based on it.  That's why there's a section on credit card applications as to what race are you.
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Goodrum showing the strain of missing Vissy publicly on: July 21, 2014, 09:18:14 AM
Never spend more than you plan to pay off each month and they are very convenient, life would suck without credit cards. Again, never carry a balance or you're fucked.


No they are not and if your luck sucks without credit cards, then you have a problem beyond that.



Even worse, the banks are more likely to target white people.  Black folks complain about not getting credit and that's not because of racism....its because the fact is that when a black person finds out they are screwed...they'll usually say "fuck that crackers" and never send a dime, let their home foreclose or etc and would not give a shit about how many collection calls they get 

White people on the other hand will continue to pay because they feel "obligated" and a duty to pay off what they owe and they'll continue to throw their hard earned cash down a bottomless hole. 


Are you white???  Well that's just perfectly alright when it comes to banks

23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Goodrum showing the strain of missing Vissy publicly on: July 21, 2014, 08:22:32 AM
There is a difference is what I do. I use material Goodrum posts and photos he gave us. For example, on a recent radio show he said he was living in a basement and didn't have any furniture. So I posted that.

He came back and said it was a two bedroom apartment. He didn't have any furniture because he doesn't use credit cards. So he has to wait until he can afford things. He always looks for bargains.

That is fair enough. However, if people had read Goodrum's stories about his business ventures you would think he would be well to do. Now we know he is battling away like many of us are. No shame in that.

He doesn't like when I post those photos that ridicule him. Heck, why on earth get up on stage with Billy Guns and make a fool of yourself? He was boasting before that appearance that he had Munzer like definition.

So when people laugh at the buffoon he retaliates by targeting me. He can't target the anonymous jokesters out there. I expect him to reply. He used to give Keith Jones as good as he got.

However, with me he has resorted to fabricating bullshit or exaggerating things that he knew about me. He has stepped over the line plenty with his defamatory remarks. Any person who continually does that

sort of thing is an asshole in my opinion. Plain and simple. Can he deny that?

By the way, I never made fun of him for his sexual orientation, nor have I made fun of his ex. Goodrum is his own worse enemy. Look at his threads. Same result whether I post in them or not. That has been

the same on Getbig for as long as I can remember.

You must have me confused with Fitness Frenzy lol


Your avatar had a picture of my ex and you posted threads as well.  I lump both of you in the same room.
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Inquiry about gym equipment on: July 21, 2014, 08:16:37 AM
I am looking at opening up my own private gym facility (personal training exclusively, for now).

So it's a small gym so to speak. I have not looked at or seen any decent equipment since I left US. I know we have a lot of gym owners as well as Coach, Hazbin and Basile who's expertise I value.

Any suggestions? What are the smart choices?

I HATE everything I have seen so far in Romania: local brands, Panatta, techno gym etc .. all insult any bodybuilding/engineering mind/body intelligence

If it weren't for the distance, I would say that some of Vince's customized stuff looks great and probably feels great too. I am also a student of how to build equipment according to the human body mechanics ..

I was a fan of Hammer Strength and Flex, Icarian equipment, but this was in the late nineties, early 2000's





I would look for a gym that's being liquidated or gone bankrupt.  Schools and colleges are also great places to get equipment...never hurts to give a call and ask to purchase their equipment.  However, I honestly would get free weight and "plate loaded" equipment as its more widely available in your country than getting machine weights.  If you do intend on buying from another country, try to rent a truck and driver and bring it back on your own rather than pay a shipping company.  Also buy or obtain all of your equipment from the same place
