1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Right now, about 170% of my body weight. When I was at my peak, I could do 200%.

    The question should be how much do you squat or how much do you overhead press. Bench is such a non-functional lift.

    Possibly the only question you could ask that will get you more flat-out lies than "what are you wearing today" posts without pics....

    Oh, I don't know. A "this is how we are hung" thread would probably give a pretty good race.

    bench is not a non-functional lift.

    btw, deadlift is probably the best overall strength indicator if you have to pick one lift. second would be clean.

    Hmm that either means she's quite strong or you're quite light.

    I'm about 155, and she was much lighter but surprisingly strong. Somehow that was a big turn on for me.

    That's one thread where people would be welcome to lie. I do NOT want to see proof, thanks. [​IMG]
