    That's probably because he's the one selling them.

    Real men get their back scratched by the swimsuit bimbos they carry on their shoulders at all times.

    Stretching is your friend.

    Why is it an "issue"?

    "Infected"?

    Lol the way some of you guys are talking about steroids in this thread is hilarious.

    I hear that steroids are more dangerous than fentanyl.

    My gym is mostly populated by pro fighters or high level amateurs, i'd say 1/10th of the gym is on roids. Just going off the ones who I've had conversations about them. There are some who I'd assume are but without proof I'm not going to say they are.

    In the sense that it is an important topic.

    I believe that it is inevitable that everyone will be augmented more than they are now. Technology improves us, shoes, clothes, smart devices, language, contact lenses, drugs, etc they all allow us to modify our original form in a way that suits our purposes.

    There will come a point when most people will be on something that would rule them out of competitive tested sports with current standards.

    I'm interested in what we accept and don't and how that changes over time. So the prevalence of a prohibited methodology is history in action, being able to observe the social consequences of trans humanism, it's fascinating.

    So you'd... carry me on your shoulders while I'm wearing a swimsuit?

    Somehow, I really don't think any amount of stretching is going to help on that front.

    Wow, you're a defensive little fella aren't you.


    PS Sorry for the late response. I barely have enough time to shit these days let alone waste that much time on the net. I'm sure you understand.

    I left it until 1230 and then did mine.

    I'm up by Loch Lomond (not Scottish, work) and it took me a good amount of time to get it cleared.

    Beautiful area. Am coming up next month, looking forward to the drive past Loch Lomond enroute to Fort William.

    Without going into specifics, I've worked up here for a few years and only now spending a bit of time going out and about. Now the spring has sprung its starting to get nice. Before the midges start.

    Myself and the wife are looking at driving up to oban tomorrow as the weather is supposed to be nice.
