Has the IQ of T-Nation dropped in the last few days or I'm just identifying stupidity with greater regularity? Or is 2006 the year of the stupid man?
In the last couple of days I've read comments from posters that has me wondering if the lower echelon of the gene pool has started to infiltrate T-Nation. Let's categorize them as the Missing Chromosome Men or MCM for short.
What have I read in the last couple of days that gives me this impression? I'm glad you asked.
This is just a short sampling, paraphrased of course:
professional bodybuilders are weak (this statement was echoed by more than one MCM)
splenda will kill you (conspiracy theorist MCM)
giving advice on which steroids to use to a newbie who has never strung together 2 successful months of lifting in his life (new T-Nation member MCM where all 40 or so of his posts can be categorized as MCM status)
over half the posts on the Marmots, Shower Sex, and Fat Chicks thread (multiple MCMs)
many posts on the If It's Not Cosgrove, It's Crap! thread (multiple westside wannabe MCMs that would bend over on the spot at the mere sight of an original Westsider)
many, many more
Are a lot of people really this stupid? Am I becoming more cynical as I age into my mid-thirties? If I am cynical will it get worse in my fourties? Fifties? Or are MCMs really infiltrating T-Nation and we will just have to take them down one by one? You be the judge...
