... the pics LouisianaLady posted are along the lines of what I was suggesting in my post above. Once you get the top longer, it's easier to let the sides and back grow out further if you wanna go long all over....
| O-T Lounge|| re: Growing hair out for first time. any tips from experience?? - epbart on 3/2/15 at 10:26 pm|
One possibility is to let the top more freely grow, while keeping the sides and back at least a little on the short side. Then when your hair gets long enough on top you can start letting the sides & back grow out to match. Depending on what your hair looks like, this can help you navigate some of t...

There's several factors that should go into such a decision.
The reality is that steroid-- at least some types of steroids-- can be done relatively safely. There's always some risk of side effects and later health issues, but if you are responsible and have a trustworthy supplier (if not a doctor...

As the first person to reply said, this is a lie.
| O-T Lounge|| re: Justification vs. Excuse - epbart on 3/2/15 at 12:32 pm|
In my mind, excuse is the more generic form and includes justification.
Excuse seems more equivalent to reason. It may be a good reason/excuse, a bad reason/excuse or a neutral reason/excuse. Either word can be inclusive of pretty much any scenario from any positive or negative perspective. Thoug...

never heard people calling people that.
Sounds like it could be affectionate, like something you'd call your son, daughter, etc. before you grab them and tickle them. Or a non-cussword dig a friend might say to another instead of calling them a goober, dufus, or similar.
But then again, I coul...

To the OP: This is perhaps overly simple, but the coaches generally have to bear two things in mind:
1) What type of players they need, including position and what type of player they prefer at that position (ex: small, fast linebackers vs. larger run-stoppers; or, tall CBs vs quicker CBs, etc.)...

One of the biggest risks of testosterone replacement therapy is that when your body senses the injected T, it compensates by slowing down natural testosterone production... the result: you become dependent on the injections.
