    Seems dumb.. People do anything for a bit more cash. If they raise the prices I'm going to write a dirty letter to them. That will show them!

    I'm not that worried about it, I think internet-users are very aware of stuff going on and we can control the demand side of the market. Flex your power.

    Hahhaahha, man I was close to doing it but I was short on cash, short on time (going to Australia in August), and my diet still sucks balls. I'm improving bit by bit though.

    I typically lose interest in articles written using 5th grade english. The author of that article appears to be a moron, and misses the problem (as do most people)

    The problem isn't that the mean old corporations are using the government to force you to do something - its that the government can in the first place.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.
