We might as well give up then!

If we can't compete fairly and drug free like the athletes of the past....

Yo, Brother! QUIT SMOKING THAT SHIT!! If you inherited more-or-less normal (or superior) genetics, it's easy to moralize about how virtuous it is to be a "natural athlete," attract suitable female companionship, and live a happy life. For some of us, none of that is an option, and we do what we need to do to get our bodies all-the-way-up to mediocre. Personally, I lifted hard and "clean" for 14 years and had damn little to show for it. A little juice made a big difference. "Artificial beats natural." End of story.

It's true, it's true....American's don't do irony.

Just joking mate. I read posts sometimes and don't know whether to jump in or not with my 'is this guy for real' comments and such.

I posted the article for amusement more than anything. I never ceased to be amazed at the ignorance of journalists. When you see in print the obvious lack of research or understanding they have on a particular topic you can't help but wonder what sort of tainted information we get elsewhere in our news.

What a load of shit.

Yup, they obviously can make a huge difference in athletic performance and getting really big. But it's sad to think that anybody would need them to attract suitable female companionship, and live a happy life. I think extremely few in any would fit in that category. The real problem there is the mind-not the body.
