You don't recognise satire though.
If everybody recognized satire, the EF would be so boring.

Not an argument:
The Rhodes twins definitely don't wear large trousers to avoid bulge.


(Don't google it, youtube it, people).

Not over-here though. Switzerland only seems to be getting the West Coast soy transplants or the East Coast Quinoa addicts. What you're looking for are some down South diabetes-sweet-tea-drinking, BBQing Tennessee interns...that's why real food and real people are all about.

Makes me want a Calhoun's right now, along with beers on deck followed by a good UT/Vandy game.

"the path of the slim man is beset on all sides by the inequities of colonel sanders and the tyranny of ray croc. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, runs with the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's trainer and the motivator of lost weight. And i will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and fatten my brothers. And you will know i am the lord lard when i lay my vengeance upon you."

Not sure exactly .. About 178cm x 84kg...
Odd, I'm only a little taller (180cm), but can no longer fit into my size 32s when I'm over 94kg. At 84kg, my 32s are decidedly loose. Must be my muscular physique.

The fat lady thread got me thinking..
My love of prosecco and beer seems to have increased the size of my belly to the point where i notice it now and it's annoying me a little.. Not a lot, it's a status symbol after all, like a rolex My trousers have a 34in waste so I'm too huge.. and will try lose it..

But mean time, are there some styles of clothing that make it look a little less obvious? Vertical stripes maybe? A shirt vs a t-shirt? Or should I just embrace it and show it off? It's still small enough that I can hold it when a lovely lady walks past!

Not sure i'm expecting a sensible answer but hey...
Have a tattoo...clothes are boring!

You appear to have misunderstood how to quote correctly.

In what way have I misunderstood?

I always arrive too late, when a thread is almost dead..
A pity.. there's much to be said about Coop-saving dashing Raoul and the kind and comfy Obelix.

Re: Fat bellied gentlemen - Suck it up or..

*resurrects thread*
Just spotted a gentleman who seems to have no issue with his large belly at all - he was wearing a skin-tight orange t-shirt with a deep V-neck, with roughly 5cm of paunch peeking out at the bottom. Part of me thinks "dude, if I wore a crop top, I would get crucified, put it away", the other part thinks "damn, I wish I were THAT confident". It's not the first time I've seen this particular fashion choice, I guess it's the same conundrum for both genders - no matter how much you try and artfully drape and conceal, you are still overweight and get stared at/commented on, so you might as well not give a damn and wear what you like. Still, can't you feel the chill air on the bits that have escaped sartorial confinement? O_o

Hi JohnH,

You could always invest in a set of fake abs like what the current Mayor of Geelong, Darryn Lyons did.

It's none of that stuff.. It's too much drink and too much food and not enough exersize. Oh and getting old too! Maybe stopping smoking? (good excuse)
Hi John,
why there is enough energy to eat too much and drink too much and not enough energy to do some activity?
What is blocking you to practice? Which emotions would you like to silence with too much eating and drinking?

ciao ciao
