T Nation

A Profile In Courage

Today we chronicle a 20 minute long investigation (I’m lazy, okay?) into the claims of one GERRY.P.SHARMAN, aka Jerry Sharman, aka Icy Cold Stuntaz 412.

For those of you previously unaware with the existence of our dear friend, he is quite fond of discussing pressing social issues!

Oh, okay.

It’s also interesting to note that he’s an engineer who doesn’t understand the principle of proportion in mathematics, or basic social conditioning which is taught in any pop psychology class.

And, we get to the meat of it, the claims about the state of his physical fitness.

Really? Spectacular.

Since Gerry has refused repeatedly to share his picture with us, where he actually trains in Colorado or his age, I thought I’d atleast share the photo for him. You know, to help. I’d like to thank the person who found this for me, he’d like to remain anonymous because he doesn’t want to waste his time with this (I have no problem wasting my time, however), but most of you would know him.

Now, now, how do we know this our dear friend Jerry?

Well, he did post this.

Whoopsee. JP instead of GP. Jerry instead of Gerry.

How do we know the photo is from someone in Denver? And why did I mention that whole engineer thing?

Thrilled you asked!

Scroll down. They’re based in Denver. Snap.

So Jerry, in the spirit of the Real Men of Genius commercials (he is an engineer, you know), I thought I’d modify one of their little diddies as a tribute. I leave you with this:

Dweezil presents… Real Men of Genius
(real men of genius)
Today I salute you, Mr. Blowhard Internet Racist Weightlifter
(mr. blowhard internet racist weightlifter)
Not content with being a white, old, balding ‘scuba diving expert’ with a deep understanding of black culture, you decided to post about your 585 pound squat and 14% bodyfat at 5’6", 240 pounds. If you’ve got it, flaunt it online is your motto, which is ironic; because you haven’t got it
(what were you thinking?)
You think this sounds natural, but it couldn’t seem phonier if your username was NotGoHeavyFool
(couldn’t fool a blind man)
Ah, the sound of a structural inspections engineer living in Denver talking about rap music. Sure, you know absolutely nothing, but we know even less
(I was breakdancing to gangsta rap before you were born, junior)
Who needs reality? You’re posting on the internet, and you’re using your massive penis to do wrist curls right now
(gotta keep the grip strong)
Although you’re always wrong, you’ll always have your 455 pound bench
(not today, grandpa)
So crack open an ice cold Bud Light Malcolm X, because judging by the homoerotic stylings of your awesome mustache, you really put the hole in asshole

Slow Sunday for you?

well done

That is a very good investigation.

The only one I’ve ever seen that was more thorough was on creul.com, when some dumbass was trolling and screwing with them.

It took about fifteen minutes to have the guys name, address, phone number, place of employment, and the icing on the cake- A web page dedicated to him, littered with child porn, and his name all over it, so that if you google him, you get linked to his porn page.

It just isn’t good to screw around too much and piss off the wrong people on the net.

That is absolutely hilarious on so many levels. I have tears running down my face.

I don’t think that’s really him, just my opinion though.

Seems to fit. The profile says he’s a scuba expert and in most thread he can barely keep his head above water.

The members at T-Nation are impressive. Digging this stuff up is brillaint and hilarious.

Is this a new way of winning an argument? It’s a guy thing right?

let me get a ruler and we can see who won this one.

No, this guy is an utter tool and if someone found the time in their day to shut him down, then it shouldn’t be belittled. I daresay Dweezil is a better man than me.

(yes)

I may be the only one, but I’m going to call this a low blow.

So he lied about his numbers and body composition. So what? I’m betting he is not the first one to do so here.

And about being a racist I wouldn’t know since I haven’t read his posts, but even if he is this seems a bit too much.

Does this justify linking to his picture and his place of employment and calling his mustache ‘homoerotic’? Is this even remotely proportional? Even if he is a troll?

What if someone gets the bright idea to harass him or his employer? He might lose his job, be humiliated and certainly lose a few nights’ sleep. Just because he posted something online. And of course we can’t even be 100% sure that this is the right person…

If you want to argue with trolls, go right ahead. If you want a troll to go away, don’t feed it. Opening a troll for abuse in real life is not the way to go.

better get a yardstick sweetie…

Given his extreme inability to put forward a cohesive, logical, intelligent argument in pretty much every post…

…combined with an obvious problem with honesty…

…is it not just a little concerning that he performs structural assessments for a living.

Pwned

ah… The Gloria Allred and NYPD posts. Maybe there isn’t a lot of ethnic diversity in Colorado, or in his office.

This guy is harmless. Anybody been around here long enough to remember Jason R. Baran? A true psychopath who is probably now enjoying the confines of a mental hospital.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, no matter what it is, it’s called free speech.

I agree with the person who said you shouldn’t be posting pics on the net of people and accusing them of things, even if you are right. So what if you think he is racist, are you personally going to identify everyone you have a problem with? Unless he personally attacked you and did the same thing, I think this was uncalled for.

I’d say the majority of people here exaggerate their physique also, so that doesn’t have any bearing on the situation.

D,

Well done my friend. That is why Trolls are not welcome here.

I cannot wait to see what new identity Gerry comes up with. It should be fun.

Best Regards,
