Re: Random crap

Being from the UK, I flat out don't understand the gun law arguments. The US has more gun crime than any other country because of their gun laws. I do understand that a certain amount of it is "pandora is out of her box and it's pretty tricky to stuff her back in" though. All countries have gangs an...

Re: Random crap

My major problem with gym types is that they only listen to people that look like they want to look like. Surely, Usain Bolt’s coach doesn’t look anything like Usain Bolt and can’t run anywhere near as fast as he can but you can’t contest the guys knowledge and ability? My second major problem is th...

Re: Random crap

One of the regulars in our gym spent the entire hour I was there yesterday doing various shoulder/military presses. I wouldnt be surprised if he knocked out 1000 reps. He doesnt look like he works on his shoulders but it will be interesting to see what he looked like after ten years of doing that.
