"Genetics MATTER. If they didn't everyone could just "hard work themselves" into whatever they wanted to be. There's a reason some guys ride the pine in the NFL and some guys go to the hall of fame. There's a reason you're not going to pull a grand like Andy Bolton.
There is a reason that not everyone can be a Mr. Olympia, or a Formula 1 race car driver, bang super models on the weekend, or total elite. It's very possible that you could completely fulfill your entire genetic potential, and never reach the crest of your desired dreams.
Yeah I know, that's f-ing depressing but life isn't always some unicorn shitting rose pedals on your walkway." --LRB
