The Flame-Free Confession Thread

The decision is in. It’s about the fact that you actually eat at McDonald’s.


#8460

You have kids man. You can’t judge. Playplaces rock.


#8461

Ah, so that was you in the ball pit. I thought that kid looked too yoked to be in there.

There was a young (20 +/- 2 years) guy DLing in the gym. He was doing sets of 3-5 with a weight that was quite challenging for him. The issue: On every rep, he had his head turned all the way to the side as he watched himself deadlift in the mirror. I was sure that, at any moment, the torque on his spine was going to rip a transverse process off at the base.

The confession: Upon seeing this, I almost broke Gym Commandment #1. (‘Thou shalt not give unsolicited advice.’) Almost.

I went into McDonald’s, kid free, a few months ago. It was very uncomfortable, I had at least 15 years on the next oldest person that wasn’t accompanied by a child.

McDonald’s is bizarre nowadays. I was used to a line of registers lined with young, chirpy people dying to greet you. Now there’s 1 or 2 registers with a grumpy, ugly person who ignores you and tries to negotiate you into using the app to order.

Also, surely knife and fork is the confession here!


#8464

My kids have never been is a McD’s I told them that when the yellow arches are lit up it means they are full !! Oldest daughter is 8 now and pretty sure she has worked out this is Bullsh$t but still doesn’t ask to go there.


#8465

I went to change my Google settings. At which point I see their profile of me. Apparently, “Fast Food” is one of my key interests lol


#8466

It helps that Maccas is fukin disgusting. I gave it a heap of chances when I was younger and they kept disappointing me. The last chance was about 5yrs ago, and I haven’t been back since.


#8467

Hold up… You mean looking at myself in the mirror at all time WON’T increase me gains?


#8468

Meanwhile im just sitting here after accomplishing the 15 double cheeseburger challenge this arvo with some mates from work
3 mins 46 seconds mind you


#8469

3min 46 seconds to eat 15 burgers! That is pretty impressive! Did you win out of your mates?


#8470

Only just
Id knocked down 12 in just over 2 mins but the 15 is much harder
One of my mates didnt finish it which is understandable, he’s about 60kg wringing wet


#8471

Confession: I was considering making make blueberry pancakes this morning, then I remembered I had blueberry ice cream last night, so I made chocolate chip pancakes instead.


#8474

Obvious answer was the make ice cream pancakes.

Geez man, are you even trying?


#8475

Why not make blueberry pancakes, sprinkle then in chocolate chips and have ice cream and whipped cream on top


#8476

Because that is what waffles are for.


#8477

French Toast doh.


#8478

Has no pockets to hold the delicious melty stuff.

They all have merit. Waffles just have a lot more.
