I really hope some of the "cryptozoology" ones are true (e.g dinosaurs in Congo!) but I find them very hard to believe.

Indeed cryptozoology is essentially bolox, but have no fear their are dinosaurs in the Congo. But of the avian kind!

Across the years Metal wraps have consistently been the hardest wearing. In fact I have only replaced a metal wrap because I 'fancied' a change. Just bought some metal orange wraps.

Bowling for soup (festival I just happened to hear them).

SOAD were great live. When they played Reading day before toxicity came out they were brilliant.

You can do whatever intensity and rep/sets you want. There's no set loading for using the chains or bands

Yes. But it has now been done. When Ray W or who ever does it next he will be the second guy to do it. And the first guy in sleeves

It's been done equipped so both of them are way down the list as is. Thus guy is the first to do it in wraps. And if anyone does it out of wraps he'll be the first guy to do it raw.

thats because the IPF attitude is 'it doesnt count if its not IPF'

It doesn't in relation to the IPF Happy

As to this lift its in wraps and a mono, so for those reasons alone it's not worth anything but a cursory comparison to those that have other regs.

Tbh I don't particularly care what goes on outside the IPF. Sure that's a great monster Squat, brilliant, but beyond that I don't give much of a monkeys.

Id expect those in other feds to have similar sentiment.

It really isn't, you know (actually, the exception probably is athletes and performers, which ironically is what were were originally discussing). Maths and physics teaching are probably the most obvious examples of jobs where there is chronic undersupply at the (not-market-set) salary. Medicine and politics are fairly obvious examples of large salaries without even a hint of undersupply (medicine courses are hugely over-subscribed by people with the requisite grades). Medics have played a superb hand over the last twenty years to drive the divergence of their incomes from other stable-work professionals (and good luck to them).
In general frictionless market theories tend not to apply that well to the actual world; this is even truer in salaries than most other areas, where things are distorted by political action, people's understandable reluctance to change to a different career where that means starting again at the bottom, and people who set wages' equally understandable tendency to pay themselves rather well. And at one time there were effective trades unions, of course, from whom we still have SOME legacies (paid holidays etc).
I'm not complaining. I do well enough for my needs, and I have enough transferable skills and low enough debts that I COULD jump ship if I really wanted to. But the idea that remuneration is set principally by merit and market doesn't, in my experience and opinion, survive much contact with the facts.
(The idea that income, and indeed promotion, are driven as much by desire for them as anything else does, but that's a whole different conversation.)

Well said.

Although footballers et al earning stupid money is stupid and illogical there is probably not that much that can be done to reverse this trend.
