Re: "hey! i can jerk you!"

Friend of mine twittered a couple of weeks ago that he'd lost some weight (goal of his) and was now 170. I replied that I could now back squat him the next time he got lippy with me and that fact was awesome. (Our friendship is completely based on smart aleck sniping.)

His reply "No."



Don't think he appreciates my brute strength!

I'd imagine his leg length would be a factor. At 50'0" I know it would be for me.

What? No... "Attack of the 50' Woman." It's a classic of terrible B-Sci-Fi. Have you really not heard of it?

No I haven't heard of it. Not much into sci-fi

AND, I just realized my typo!

Right, but I mean... everyone's heard of that movie, surely? It's the go-to title when you want to reference terrible 1950's sci-fi, right up there with "Plan 9 From Outer Space."

Ah, well... I guess I move in more limited circles than I thought.
