Waylander's recent post in the T-Cell reminded me that there used to be a fella on this site who posted -- every so often -- under the screen name Professor X. Due to various forum shenanigans that unfolded entirely beyond his control, he has apparently felt the need for an extended hiatus from this web site, leaving us without the guru we turned to so many times for all things related not only to bodybuilding... but for just being all-around likeable, too.
Unfortunately, along with the unexpected departure of the Prof comes the entirely expected nostalgia of better days gone by. With rose-colored glasses, I look back on the days of threads filled with entirely supportive, eternally understanding and completely ego-less contributions from the Big Guy... and contrast that to the steaming pile of shit this site has become in his absence.
So, without further ado, I've prepared a few slides with which we can use to retake this website: general philosophies and words of wisdom handed down from X, himself. These are universally applicable and can be used whether your goal is to be the next Mr. Olympia or the future Mr. Congeniality of the interwebz. They may be posted for the benefit of all newbs in appropriate threads.
I encourage all to participate using the template attached to this post -- or, at the very least, to say a few words about how he has touched you over the years (if you weren't quite so lucky, how he has touched your life would work, as well). Remember to best honor the Professor's tunnel-vision approach to thread subjects by keeping this on track. No haters allowed.
