Derek,

It's all the rage at the Olympics this year.

Theres tabby fudge swirl, calico and nuts, Siamese and sesame (not my favorite), tomcat and oysters (for that Casanova in you) and the fat free Sphynx and maple syrup.

Re: Classic Rip (collection of quotes, many hilarious, many NOT w/f/s)

I just found this quote on ************ and had to share it with you all!!!!

Regarding a question about Starting Strength missing pages 206 and 207 but not appearing to be missing any content.

Quote:
Page numbers 206-207 were offensive to us, for numerological reasons we'd not care to discuss, so we omitted them and indexed around them. No material is missing, just the 2 most horrible, sickening, disgusting, revolting, baby-killing, maggot-infested, sorry, rotten, substandard numbers in all of mathematics. And good riddance, I say. **** 206 and 207, both of them.
LOL I am still rolling on the floor

Edit: Looks like this has been brought up allready, i will leave it up though because i think it is worth it :-P

Robert,

If any quote was worth a re-post, that was it.

In response to one of our own's question about whether partial squats are ever useful

"If lifting heavy weights for partials were of any benefit for sports, Gold's Gym would be fielding the majority of the 2008 Olympic team"


I heard that if you avoid power cleans on SS, you spend the afterlife strapped to a curl machine.

Re: Classic Rip (collection of quotes, many hilarious, many NOT w/f/s)

"Mark,

I almost **** myself while I was deadlifting last week. You didn't touch upon this issue in your books at all. I was wondering if you have ever experienced this happening to someone in your gym. If not, what do you think is the funniest and/or worst thing you have seen while training?"

Rip's reply:


"No, ****ting yourself when you deadlift was omitted from BBT. The best way to avoid this is to not deadlift when you need to ****, and vice versa. Planning is the key here."

His answers are so simple, I bet most of the questioners just want to crawl in a hole and hide!!

from just today...

When asked about intercourse or self gratification in relation to hindering progress.... (i really hope i put that in the most WFS way....)

Rippetoe: "Yes, it does. Never do either. Ever. Not if you want to be strong like bull."

I saw Coach Rippetoe yesterday in FL, and he mentioned that the post yesterday (mentioned by Michael) was one of the stupidest he had seen.

He knows about this thread and seemed to be amused by it. He thought it was still locked. He is one of the wittiest people I have ever met, and he really is nice. I'm pretty sure that if you get dressed down by Coach, you have it coming.

I'm not extremely experienced as a lifter, and he didn't tear me apart - he gave some good pointers to me and other people doing lifts. It was a pleasure to meet him!
