    Whoa...why would they burn down a gym?
     
  5. that's like burning down a church.. though one might think you dont want a bunch of angry, meathead gym-goers after you.

    at least weights are metal.

    Some metrosexual probably set his curling iron too close to his hairspray.

    Or maybe the owner was looking for an insurance pay-off.

    I admit it was me. I was doing cable curls, three-o'clock in the morning, sets of 52, and the pulleys heated up until the gym ceiling caught fire. I panicked and ran out, screaming, and went to Denny's and hid in the bathroom. I hope no-one was injured.

    dude, if somebody torched Lynne's gym, we'd hunt them down like they were Grendel or some shit.

    This actually reminded me of a funny story. I was going up to an unsanctioned bench meet with a few guys, most importantly Andy Briggs was driving a conversion van to haul our big asses to the meet (I think there were 4 of us). Anyway, we're cruising along and this car cuts us off (we'd just eaten some Wendy's so we were feeling particularly fat and powerliftery) and Andy has psycho roid rage screams "DON'T MAKE ME UNLOAD THIS MOTHERFUCKER DUDE, OR YOU WILL DIIIIEEEEEEEE!!!!!"
