    funny stuff from the gym today

    I was working chest and triceps today, and actually saw a couple funny things. The first, this kids bench pressing, and his little brother (like 4 years old) and his mother come in and watch. After a set, the mother takes the little kid over to the crate of mini-db's and hands the kid a 2 lbs. db and shows the kid how to do a curl. I thought to myself 'Future Curl jockey'. Am I just being cynical?

    Thing #2: This one pissed me off. I'm doing close grip benching using the preacher bar, and this kid, whom we shall call d**che-bag #1 is using the bench next to me. The kid puts down his 55 lbs. db's on the bench, which is quite narrow. I'm in the middle of my first heavy set when I hear a 'THUD' from next to me, see something bounce into the lower corner of my vision, and then squash my foot. I stop the set, summon d**chebag #1 and ask him if those are his weights.

    D#1: Oh did they fall off?
    Me: Yeah. Onto my foot.
    D#1: oh..sorry..did it hurt?
    Me: No, it felt oddly pleasurable
    D#1: Oh, ok, well that's good.

    So a while later I see him with his 2 friends, d**chebag #2, and d**chebag #3, #2 is benching, and having a hard time with his 85 lbs. power-set.. He has #3 spotting him, and when he starts to fail, jackass #3 only pulls up one side, thus the other side of the bar starts to dump the weight. Jackass #1 has to run over and pullup the other side, but this causes jackass #2 to lose his balance and thus fall back, causing jackass #3 to completely fail and squash himself with the bar, and send jackass #1 onto his ass.


    What's the moral of the story? Drop a ******* 55 lbs. db on my foot, and you end up on your ass.

    lol @ those jackasses
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I liked the first one...

    The second one is sad. Makes it easy to see why so many novices get seriously injured, doesn't it?

    I agree with W8_4_Me, first one was funny, first half of the second was not funny at all. I would have done what Kayak_boy said.

    Never let anyone get away with that.

    You should have got up, punched him in the face, then drop kicked his buddy for letting it happen. Then, when you leave, key his car and slash his tires.

    I just noticed that people like you make it harder for people like me (minors) to be accepted in a gym. Or actually be left alone without having to take your parent.

    At my gym today I dropped 330 lbs. to the floor on standing Smith-machine calf raises - not really funny but I figured I would add it.
