re: There is a new CrossFit doc 'Fittest on Earth: A Decade of Fitness' - Vander
[quote]Do they cover the test-e, anavar, tren, and igf supplement routines?[/quote] Yeah I was going to say. It's clear that "But the lives of these elite athletes are very different from the average gym-goer, and the documentary gives insight into the different ways these competitors try to get...

re: I'm sick of people saying the middle class is worse off than 4 decades ago. - Vander
[quote]I didn't assert they were equal. In fact, THAT is my point. You gain a GREAT DEAL MORE from this "necessary expense" today than you did in 1970. You'll notice that like I have been doing in this thread from the start, I'm not saying there aren't new expenses or that it isn't expensive. ...

[quote]It's not either or man. If you're going to say, "I could have had this lower expense in 1970", then I'm going to point out, you could have had less benefit. I mean, your car is a necessity today but it sure as frick is a benefit too. If I have to explain that to you, go look at pics of...

[quote]I should also point out that in 1970, the typical long distance rates amounted to about $17 an hour. Called your relatives 4 times per month or your kid at college? That likely meant you were pushing or breaking $100. in 1970 dollars! But hey, let's all just use the cherry picked numb...

[quote] They are also additional benefits that people didn't have in the past. Just sayin [/quote] Something cannot be a benefit when it is a requirement to live. Yes they provide things that were not available years ago, but you cannot live in the modern world without them so they are not re...

[quote]So, in other words, you get A LOT more for your money now and life is made immensely easier. Thanks for helping.[/quote] What? No, that wasn't my point at all. My point was is that these two things are additional expenses that people did not have in the past. That is, you can add ce...

[quote]Meh. You could say the same thing about air conditioning - but people did it for thousands of years. It CAN be done. It would just be pretty tough and inconvenient. That's an argument that folks get a net return on the expense. Doesn't make it not an expense - one that just a generation a...

re: Accurate Diagrams of Marriage and Divorce in the 21st Century - Vander
[quote]The insecurity of men and their mistakes of marrying before the age of 30 come out in these BS threads. Don't rush into having kids either. Take the first two years of marriage and travel and enjoy them. You've got plenty of time to have kids. [/quote] Additionally, if you get married and...

re: Accurate Diagrams of Marriage and Divorce in the 21st Century - Vander
[quote]None of married friends seem happy but I don't think they have ever been cheated on. They all married pretty great, educated girls too and despite that, their lives just are so depressing. It's always interesting to me to hear all these guys on the ot say how happy thier marriages are, when I...

re: Protestors have stormed the MSC at A&M - Vander
[quote]Do you have a problem with facts? Sure seems like it. Would you like to refute any of it? That your president and chancellor are both liberal Democrats?
