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.

    Look, the problem with eating shrimp is that it makes you look friggin old to most size 14s and below.

    Why? The tiny, tiny forks and all the cocktail sauce that inevitably gets on the shoulders of your jacket, in your goatee, and on your shoes.

    What hottie wants to kiss a guy with dentures and horseradish breath? The answer? Only a few.

    That, in a shell, is the problem.

    The man on the left is in shape, while the man on the right is not. Casual clothes on the in shape man looks good, but the suit still can't hide the poorer physical shape.

    Right, the impression is that the gay guy to the left is in good shape while the potentially straight middle-aged family father guy to the right could have done well not stopping going to the gym after 40.

    Was this your point?

    We are not talking about bi-valves here. Removing a shrimps intestine is a simple process that takes about1.5 seconds.

    The problem is not the time it takes. The problem is the attitude.

    I'm not wasting good shrimp on a crappy shrimp cocktail.

    I've got several good recipes for shrimp. Have you ever had a fried shrimp po-boy sandwhich, shrimp etoufee, shrimp gumbo. If your ever in Houston let me know, I'll cook.

    I've read that clams are bi-curious because of their valving.

    Is this true?

    The internet is full of movies about bi-curious clams, so it must be.

    Look up Penny Flame and Kinzie Kenner for a bi curious clam movie.

    I will relent that an Ã[​IMG]touffÃ[​IMG]e is Paleo, but I feel that Houston is a bit too carby to visit.

    Thats sad.

    The man is Steve Reeves, and the point was to show that a good frame to hang clothes on goes a long way to achieving a good look.

    Just google his name and you will get a lot if info on the man.

    Actually it is not. An etoufee is served with rice. Rice was not part of the paleo eating style. The biggest probelm with eating strict paleo is the cost. Real food cost more than the crap we generally eat everyday. I do not maintain a strict paleo lifestyle.

    You really are not missing much if you never visit houston. I'm not native to this area, and will gladly leave when the time is right.

    SF tends to attract a leaner, better looking individual (I think some must be models). They'll always criticize those of us with bad genes, chins, tummies etc. It's often not our fault. We're simply trying to improve on a faulty product. A product you can't send back for a repair or replacement.

    Anyway, I have no thoughts on the OP's look. I simply wish him all the best in his transformation.

    Thanks.
    Checked his filmography, and not really surprised that I didn't recognise him. But I see that he was once directed by Ed Wood, which obviously is a plus.

    I still do not see your point. You mean that a well-trained man looks better than one who is not? I guess that is why people go to gyms.

    Because of volcanic activity and $2 off coupons, Paleo man actually ate a lot of fried rice.

    His favorite, unfortunately, was shrimp fried rice.

    You mat not be able to send it back, but you can do a lot with what you have to work with. Granted Steve Reeves is considered to have been one of the most gifted individuals with regards to his genetics. however, getting off your butt and working your body and eating well can go a long way to changing things.

    +1. This implies a desire on your part to know about Steve Reeves, whoever the hell he is.

    EDIT: Jesus chris, Lou. Do you have a hoard of Steve Reeves memorabilia that you are looking to drum up interest for?
