The Flame-Free Confession Thread II


#1571

Now I want to jump on the wrist measuring hype. I’m pretty sure mine are fairly small and I graduated highschool at 135lbs. Granted I was a distance runner back then.

I think I look bigger than my wrists might indicate but I’m a manlet so it doesn’t count.


#1572

I’m 6’4" and can also wrap my thumb and middle finger around my wrist. My wrist measurement is 7.5".


#1573

Who the fuck measures their wrists?


#1574

bunch of weirdos

Slowly puts the tape measure back down…


#1575

Now I’m starting to wonder if I measured incorrectly…

Nah, I’d bet my 15" penis on my measuring accuracy.


#1577

My wrists are 7.5 inch. Is that good? Im 5’8


#1578

That thing says I have the capacity to be 197 pounds at 19 percent body fat. I’m impressed considering I’m legit only 5 feet.


#1579

My “potential” according to that calculator would be impressive but it’s also depressing because I’m not exactly close to achieving it…


#1580

I’d say that’s a good thing for your strongman goals. It’s the same as mine and you’re 8 inches shorter than me. Bulk on, young man!


#1581

My wife and I had to stop watching “Man vs Food” because we were putting on weight.


#1582

It’s a helpful statistic to have if you ever plan to end up in handcuffs…


#1583

I figured. I’ve always had a stronger than normal grip. I don’t know if that correlates with wrist size though but i presume it does. anything grip related seems to come easy for me.


#1584

I’ve been handcuffed several times. They’re one-size-fits-all so don’t worry.


#1585

I dunno, I’m a men’s 8 with red fuzz kinda guy.


#1586

Disagree - they reef those fuckers down so tight they can make someone with three inch wrists bleed and make their thumbs go numb.

A friend told me.


#1587

If handcuffs are too small then we use leg shackles.


#1588

Now I want to get arrested just to see if I’m huge enough to get ankle shackles. Or 2 sets of handcuffs daisy chained.


#1589

Yup. I’ve got an old log on here, which pictures will depress me, but there is one that shows what I am talking about. My arms were like 15.5 then, looks photo shopped when you see my wrists. I’ll dig it up in a bit.

Edit- here, second post. Borderline Superhero


#1590

I don’t think it’s calibrated for women.


#1591

I’ve only had to use shackles on a super fat guy and someone with a cast on their wrist.

Two sets of cuffs used together are for people with poor shoulder mobility.
