no because it is a mixture of investigative journalism, conjecture and monkeys at typewriters. the trick is to be able to recognize which is which. and then when you find conformation in different sources you can join the dots to form a bigger picture. the best work is actually much better sourced than the s**te the mainstream media shovels.
the monkeys have a use too - I enjoy reading that stuff just for entertainment value. Grin

There really needs to be a "like" button on here!

in the the midst of the noise there is a lot of good information in the 'conspiracy community'. if you have the ability to sort the wheat from the chaff you can do things like...predict a global pandemic before most people are even talking about it or...financially prepare yourself for an impending economic crash that most werent aware of. try doing that using mainstream media.

Is that not the same as giving an infinite amount of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters and an infinite amount of time and eventually they will come up with the works of shakespeare? ie. are they ones that come true simply not doing so by virtue of luck?

matthewvc said:Something certainly needs addressing is some form of income support for the 5 million sole traders / self employed . Permies are getting up to £2000/month and self employed barely £400 via dole.
No wonder the tube is still rammed.

I just dread the financial implications from the fallout from this. Sole traders and even ltd company directors will need help just like the permies but even £1,000/month is going to add up to £5bn/month, on top of the bail out for the employees. The magnitude of this is massive but so would the issues be if Boris didn't help people.

It's an absolute no win situation.

Pikefingers said:I keep seeing what appears to be a new raw bench record (349 KG) on Instagram, but Iíve not seen anyone mention it here, so wondering whether thereís a reason why? Not a sanctioned meet? Suspected fake plates? Just general bulls**t?

Yeah, I saw it posted but it seems like a big increase from the previous world record and it's really not been that shouted about. Confused

I take it your in southern Ireland?

Does Boris think the "border" is going to stop Corona? What's the point in southern Ireland having one set of rules if northern Ireland doesn't then follow the same process? Boris is obviously thinking "f**k Ireland, I'll do what I want!"

I've just seen Arnold on instagram saying the convention will be cancelled... So I would assume that yes, no crowd at all... Strange vibe for the athletes then, competing in an empty arena?

Probably even weirder for the bodybuilders. At least the strongmen are able to gauge how they are performing compared to their competitors the BBers just have a few stony faced judges to look at. It'd properly piss me off if I was competing.

Also working less on the rigs will be a massive benefit

I wonder how much his income has been affected if he isn't working on the rigs though?

Whilst they certainly earn their money, those guys normally earn a decent living and the 50% time off they get can certainly help training when off rotation but I wonder if there's been some negatives as well as positives?

I train at 3 gyms.

One gym I train at has a lot of orange men taking selfies and training topless. Good old topless lat pulldowns.

They actually charge women 30% less to be members than men.

When you see the dullards who train there, and their lack of manners, you understand why.

The other 2 are pretty good: Lemans Gym in Halstead has a lot of strongman gear: but crappy bars, which people constantly f**k up rack pulling.

RP Fitness in Cambridge has Texas Power Bars and Racks. The only thing bad is the occasional UFC wannabe practising take downs in the warm up area.

People are weird.

Jesus, I mean, even if I was in good enough shape to train topless I never would as I'd be embarrassed to have the "hey everyone, look at ME!" persona.

Tell them you now identity as a woman. Instant discount!!! Grin

I think it must be olympic year again, as London was 2012 and it's every 4 years.

Sorry, I meant to say "it IS Olympic year", not question whether it was or not. I can't wait for a bit of the weightlifting, although a lot of the former big names aren't lifting due to retiring or being banned. I think all the entertainment rests on Lasha Talakhadze's shoulders.

Well, the gym that I train at, which had a decent number of powerlifters at, now has NONE! In fact, I'm the last person there who seriously (to any degree) trains primarily for strength.

Because of this, I've started weightlifting again. The free weights area is nice and quiet, especially for a January, and I've got my own bar there and there's 20kg bumpers so it'll suffice for now.

The idea is to get back to around a 95kg snatch and 120kg C&J. We'll see......

It was like that yesterday as well. I reckon its a bot trying to gain access to something. Maybe it'll help me find my password so I can log in from my phone again?!

Is it Olympic year this year so maybe this thread will see a resurrection last this year?

Cheers mate I wasnít sure how well I was doing really but been working on my running a lot. Trying to maintain a decent level of strength whilst getting super fit. I donít try the fast stuff too often as thereís a huge injury risk at this weight but Iíve always been fairly fast over the short distances
Iím training to become a pti in the prison service. Itís a very sought after job in there and tough to get through as the ptiís training me are very proud of their position and wonít let through anyone. Job for life for me and now Iíve passed the selection course Iím hoping I then land the job and go on the 13 weeks training course soon

Awesome, good luck!

You'll have to try and get in a nice cushy open prison were inmates don't kick off too much! Not that you'd have too much trouble dealing with them. Can't be any harder than being on the doors and they'd probably not want to lose their gym privilege anyway.
