Did you know that you are currently on a bodybuilding website?

Fuck, your dumb.

Nice, insult me when I said nothing aggressive to you.

Hell, I’d be content with ANY photos and/or videos which demonstrate that a user engages in physical activity exceeding eating cake frosting directly out of the container with a spoon.

Seriously. Post your competitive horseshoe-tossing photos for all I care.

I have posted videos of me doing stuff wrong to ask for help, does that count as a performance video?

They most definitely do! Especially since you can probably out-lift several guys on these forums

Oh pimpbot, you are just too kind.
I told my mom about you, you know. I says, I says, “Mom, there’s this guy on T-Nation named PimpBot, and he’s just the nicest guy.”

Sorry little buddy. No offense intended.

I was just trying to emphasise my point that if some one is giving advice or making comments in a bodybuilding/performance website, they should be accountable, and have pictures/proof available of their current condition.

Once a mom is told about a guy, you know the relationship is on the fast track… :wink:

I’ve also told my friends about him.

You didn’t really, did you? :slight_smile:

Please tell her my screen-name is based on the following - that should put her mind at ease!

Man I’m bummed out I couldn’t coordinate a Winnipeg business trip now that you’re home! How is it being back?

I admittedly haven’t seen much of your great city - most of my time is spent in the Holiday Inn on Portage (and the liquor store across the street - you guys get better beer than we do in Ontario!)

I sure did! I told her I always picture you looking like Milhouse’s Dad even though I know you don’t, ha-ha.

I have no life. :slight_smile:

Oh yeah, the liquor stores have so much good stuff now. Even the beer vendors at the end of motels have larger selections. It’s like no one drinks Molson Canadian or Labbatt Blue anymore.

Being in Asia for so long I feel like Marty McFly in the year 2015 sometimes as I gawk at things.

I’ll walk up to Myer’s on Wednesday or Thursday to eat a 777g sandwich. The weather’s great for it. Walking I mean, not for eating that much meat.

Please no. I have seen too much pics of ugly guys here. But I agree that if you are going to give advice you should have some pics or video of your lifts.

In some thread recently, I mentioned the idea of twice-a-year mass call-out/check-in, say February and August (every six months) where each member would be invited/encouraged/expected to post a recent photo or video showing that they actually show up at a gym and train a few days a week. (Photo preferred for those with physique-based goals, video for those training for powerlifting/strongman/etc.)

In my opinion (my personal opinion, absolutely not representing “official T-Nation doctrine” or anything), the one thing that should be common ground for every person who signs up for an account on this site is an interest in exercise, more specifically weight training.

However, I’m dead-set positive that there are more than a few forum members racking up high post counts who either simply don’t train on a regular basis or don’t do so with anything that could be called dedicated (or successful) effort, and I find that just baffling. Along the same lines as people choosing to play characters on the forum, rather than talking and behaving like people would offline. There’s having a quirky personality, and then there’s playing a role like this is an old school AOL chatroom.

The personal privacy issue isn’t as solid an excuse as some might hope, because, while I 100% understand the need for online anonymity in certain professions or situations, the simple use of Photoshop-like programs (there are several free online) make it very, very easy to obscure enough to avoid giving away overt identifiers.

For what it’s worth, my current avatar is a snapshot from a video I did this past October, and I’ll be updating with a new/current picture in August.[/quote]
So, yeah, this is happening:

It’d be cool if the people in this thread posted a current pic or vid in that thread. We’ll see.

I was thinking too of a month where we all change our avatars to ourselves…like you said, it doesn’t have to be shirtless and all that.

Maybe September?

My dream is finally coming true…
