So yeah, somewhat timely response...
Rustled, rhet-arded rant and spergin' seriouspost that deserves a "we're all gonna make it:"Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
There are a ton of well-meaning, good dudes in here. There are also a corresponding number of assholes who do contribute nothing but complete shit. Even some of the aforementioned well-meaning, good dudes are prone to being assholes at times, whether it be on account of confirmation bias, meat-headedness, closed-mindedness or just a general inability to use logic or reason. I felt like I was part of said group (though still too dyel to be meatheaded), so I stopped posting.
I know its the internet (serious business bros) where insincerity and misc-level trolling are the norm, but there is an astounding capacity for immense and unnecessary fuck-headedness otherwise only seen in the depths of YouTube comment sections in here at times. I certainly contributed to this, and outside of a few select people who are un-redeemable and should go play in highway traffic, I think most of us (myself included) could try a little harder to not participate in unnecessary stupid shit. No, I don't want to talk about our bro-feels for eachother, hold hands and sing kumbaya, but some of the slapfighting in here is bad for the soul. I'm fully aware of the inherent irony in me deriding assholishness given my prior involvement in stupid shit-flinging in here - in addition to the fact that I'm bitching at everyone and being pretty judgemental at the moment - but... for fuck's sake if you feel the need to participate in any kind of dick-swinging in here, go train for a fucking meet or show or cook your food for the week or be something other than a useless shit-talker on the internet. Next time you feel the impulse to be a useless shit-talker on the internet, get up off your ass and drive to your gym and lift and think about how you can improve your training instead because I guarantee there's something you could be doing better. Being a fucking asshole for no apparent reason other than wanting to be "right" or otherwise wanting to affirm yourself at someone else's expense is surprisingly fucking stupid and meaningless, and I feel stupid for being a part of it. You should too.
So yeah, I made a commitment to not being a useless shit-talker on the internet like I have been at times, so I took the time I would have normally spent shitposting in here and started squatting every day instead. Membership in the CPU is in process and I'm aiming for a meet in February or early spring depending on how my training goes. Yeah, I'm kinda madbro and my compression shorts are rustled, so have at it with the lulz. I'll be squatting
so feel free to join me in the safe corner of RHET where cool guys can hang out when they want to have a fun time with friends, love, and laughter.
TL;DR: Talk less shit and lift more weight. love u guys~
