Ive been curious. Ive never walked into my local walmart and been greeted by a guy who could bench 500. so what do you do?
I think Hatred is a repo man
You think bigger guys have different jobs than anyone else? Sure you might have more opportunities for some positions (such as some type of security or bouncer at night clubs) but a lot of guys would just have that on the side and still have some type of full time job anyways...

Im certainly not trying to stereotype anyone by size. Im just very curious as to where I could picture the big guys of lifting. I wonder if I walk into an insurance office and see a guy bulging out of his suit or something lol
Well I'm not a huge guy but I work retail and I work for a bank.

I don't consider myself big or anything, but I work for UPS. I'd say lifting has definitely given me an advantage at my job.
