    sums it up a thread will start off promising and then turn into name calling..
    The easiest way to tell when an argument has no merit is when the protagonist mixes in some personal insults.

    "Pumping Iron" got me into this.
    If you've seen "Pumping Iron" you'll never forget Franco picking up a car, blowing up a hot water bottle, "Franco the bat", and the scenes in the weight pit where they are both training and laughing.
    What I think I like the most is the camaraderie they both represented. An undying friendship, where your rival is not your enemy. He was an example of hard work and determination getting you places.

    Thank-you for the life lessons Dr. Columbu. You are valued and you are missed.

    I had a good friend and lifting partner years ago that was of similar stature to Columbu. When we were out and and about, he laughingly compared our adventures to those of Arnold and Franco. Good times.

    Thanks. Fun to watch. I used to have a twister.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.
