I cannot take someone seriously if they cannot wear pants properly. It baffles me that they find it comfortable, let alone not realize what message they're sending.

HERC410 and I were just talking about this picture someone posted on facebook. I'd like to be able to overhead press someone weighing 250 lbs.

Now you have these twinky "Twilight" werewolves and Brad Pitt is supposedly the epitome of manliness. All people want to talk about is dieting to see there abs when they have no muscle mass in the first place. Unless your a leprechaun, 135 pounds is not impressive, abs or not! Build the house before you paint it! Thanks for starting this thread.
To be honest, ignoring the over-rated physique, Brad Pitt is a pretty impressive in terms of what he does.
