  1. The term is "board shorts", since they were first used by surfboarders.

    story THE MAX-MAN TIME PARADOX

    That short story was made into a movie a few years ago - the title is "Predestination" - but the female lead is miscast and they've added a 'terrorist' subplot BECAUSE THEY CAN'T LEAVE HEINLEIN THE HELL ALONE!!

    An Encounter with Matt

    Sorry, I meant "300 lbs. at seven-feet-tall"...

    An Encounter with Matt

    Realistically, even 400 lbs. at seven-feet-tall is not really that big. Shaq is that height and weight - if he's not standing next to someone, he looks like a big guy but nothing striking.

    The assembly line : Second station

    The movie AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON was the first to depict a werewolf transformation as being truly painful as opposed to the traditional "uncomfortable". Any short-term physical transformation would, in fact, be quite painful.

    The assembly line : Second station

    There was a commercial some years ago of an assembly line which turned guys into muscular hunks and gals into bimbos.
  7. If you live in an apartment complex or large apartment building, there may be a "fitness room" with some treadmills and simple weight machines. If so, this may be a better place to start than a gym. Two reasons: few renters use fitness rooms (you won't be worried that many people are looking at you) and you won't have to pay gym fees (although you may have to pay a deposit for the key). For those who are terrified that people will look at them and judge them - most people are way too concerned with their own fears and feelings to spend one second looking at you!

    The new grower: Part one

    Well, the old plantation homes in the southern US are pretty close to manor houses.

    Samson movie

    "When they studied the architecture of how most Philistine temples were built, it was discovered there was kind of a key flaw in the design. The primary two pillars of support, which Samson was chained in between, could easily be shifted out of proper alignment and thus causing the roof to come collapsing down. The way it would come down would take out the outer support columns and pretty much take out any and everyone in the temple. The force needed to knock those columns out of alignment... was "just enough" that a power lifter or bodybuilder could actually do it. It would take a bit of time, but would be short enough to be done during a religious revel." That is exactly what was shown in the 1949 movie "Sampson and Delilah", except that it was an arena, not a temple!
  10. I tried your tumblir but all the photos are displayed in mural format so that only a few percent of each photo fits onto my screen.

    PROGRESS!

    Your goal to gain 25 kg (55 lbs) of muscle is laudable but don't focus all your hopes and dreams on that exact number. The vast majority of people find it very hard to build muscle - my personal estimate is 95% of the population - and only another 4% can build decent (but not huge) muscle size. Be proud of the gains you make and enjoy them.

    Never met a muscle guy before

    Join a gym which specializes in weight training. Go to a beach in summer. If you're living in a small town inland, you're out of luck.

    Conflicted and unsure

    Hialmar's post is very well-written, showing a great knowledge of history, public attitudes, and sexuality. My own suggestion to boatsandhoes005 is to decide what you want and go with it. And to take all the time you need to make those decisions.
  14. Suggestion: a list of 16 choices will probably not generate a clear winner. Why not cut the list down to four choices?
