And in a way you did come to me (us) for our opinion. And would it really be a good idea to hand out advice and encourage someone that has no clue what they are doing to cycle? Fuck no.

And ya, I haven't fucked up. Have I tried things to see what happens, you bet ya, but before doing so I educate myself about the potientials involved.
