    So I was at the gym today and some gym rat started roiding out about my FTP t-shirt. Damn near blew my BLM cover story in front of the crew. Good thing he was all talk.

    I tried that approach but was lost on the conformists whose closest attempt at adrenaline dump was when they seen they ran out of infinite lives on Candy Crush.

    A MARINE and Superman once fought each other on a bet. The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants.

    Most MARINES have a grizzly bear carpet in their room. The bear isn't dead; it's just afraid to move.

    The MARINES have already been to Mars; that's why there are no signs of life.

    Ghosts sit around the campfire and tell MARINE CORPS stories.

    A MARINE can cut through a hot knife with butter.

    Death once had a near-MARINE experience.

    The MARINES are the reason why Waldo is hiding.

    A MARINE can slam a revolving door.

    When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for US MARINES.

    A MARINE once kicked a horse in the chin. Its descendants are known today as Giraffes.

    A MARINE once got bit by a rattle snake... After three days of pain and agony... the rattle snake died.

    When A MARINE does a pushup, he isn't lifting himself up, he's pushing the Earth down.

    When a MARINE throws you into a bottomless pit, you hit the bottom.

    A MARINE does not sleep. He waits.

    A MARINE once made a Happy Meal cry.

    You NEVER slap a MARINE.

    A MARINE called 911 to order Chinese food and got it...

    Guns are warned not to play with the MARINES.

    A MARINE can give aspirin a headache.

    Wisdom lies in picking your battles carefully. Don't sweat the small stuff...and it's almost all small stuff.

    Relax, guys...you'll live longer.

    Well I read the whole thing. Yay! All it did was remind me that I joined a gym a couple years ago and I’ve been there...once. That’s right. One time. I’m missing out on all kinds of fun it seems. Maybe next week. I’ll hit 65 hours this week so perhaps...nah.

    Except the OP was the one that said he was "shaking with anger", not "shaking with adrenaline from a heavy set". You're overthinking this.

    Have you seen ammo prices lately? People are wanting $600 bucks for a 1000 rounds of 9mm.

    True story from being at the gym: A big, weight lifter type guy was going back and forth between several machines doing his reps. Being that quite a few do this, I never just jump on one of the machines they just vacated. I try to judge if they're doing reps and they're going to come back to it.

    So, this guy vacates this machine for over 5 minutes and is talking to his buddies. I go over and sit down and start using it. He comes over and says "hey, I was using that machine". I said "well, we both know that is impossible". He says "why?". I said "well if you were, I'd be sitting in your lap right now".

    A bunch of people laughed out loud, he didn't.

    She was for me too. I have moved on to Karen Gillian, she is the newer model. I have gotten a lot older, but my tastes haven't changed. I believe it was George Burns who said "When I was 18 years old, I liked 18 year olds, why wouldn't I like them now?"

    To stay on topic, I hope Karen doesn't get into any gym fights over t-shirts, but if she does, I can't say I wouldn't watch the video.

    Leaving out the race aspect, I still think in 1960 if someone was wearing a hostile shirt at a gym you would have 10 guys instead of just the OP confronting the offending member.

    We have changed; in some ways for the better and in some ways not.

    As to the country club I would not want to force myself into a club that did not want me to join. I would organize my own club if I had the money and inclination (which I do not).

    I believe in freedom of association. Life is too short to worry about missing out on what other people are doing as if it is supposedly better than what I am doing.

    These are all just re-written Chuck Norris jokes. :miff:

    I’d watch my back if I were you. I wouldn’t want to copyright-infringe a guy that can kill two stones with one bird, and once threw a roundhouse kick in the Sahara Forest. :nailbiting:

    In real life I can see the people. Like it or not we size people up visually and it can influence us.

    I pretty much believe what people post here individually because...why not? It makes no difference.

    But when you look at GT as a whole it ain't reality if that makes any sense.

    Are you talking about Rabbi? Because they both ask a lot of questions and she arrived around the same time that Rabbi stopped posting so much. Same person?

    BTW - Rabbi is the reason I joined GT. Very smart man with a unique mindset.

    Pretty sure he's talking about Hannie. Rabbi is over at TOS these days.
