I just finished typing a long message in the gastric-bypass thread; something I feel strongly about. And something occured to me.
Could SOMEONE here (with more brain power than me) setup some kind of challenge; to bring on a shit load of poor fat-bastards, who have tried every fucking gadget and scheme in the world to lose weight (and probably got fatter), and put them through a T-Nation program that makes them normal people again.
Every day there are thousands of people that must come onto this great site one way or another. They probably get overwhelmed by sets/reps/ periodization and all that; a lot of people don't give crap about that (at one time, that was me...); they just don't want to be fat anymore. T-Nation can help more than any bloody informercial or "fast abs" bullshit.
I guess I'm trying to appeal to people like Chris Shugart here - he's been there, done that, and KNOWS that there's an alternative.
The D.C. Test Fest gave me a better glimpse of the capabilities of T-Nation (and it's knowledgable members) - do you think there's a way this could be used to really help turn the tide on the plight of the poor, confuzed, fat-bastard? How could "we" do that?
