Just thought i'd drop by and say hello. Good to see a bunch of familiar faces here.

For the ones who don't know me from other forums i'm another CF/kettlebell/strongman/O-lift cardio hater from Sydney Australia.

Dan S, nice to see you posting again!

Dan Silver's been posting around here?
Don't tell certain moderators from other forums where he no longer posts.

I think he has a price on his head.

Good to see you here, Don.

I try to stay out of the contentious posts because i figured you don't gain much from internet pissing matches. I've got plenty of strong opinions but if anyone wants to hear them you'll have to contact me privately or meet up for beers.

One strong opinion I will put forward though is that on FITNESS sites people should stick to FITNESS discussions. Putting up right wing, left wing, religious or other topics up is always going to be asking for trouble. When i was in the army we were told never to discuss work, poitics or religion in the mess.

DON! What's up mate?


As far as fart politics go, I am all for 'em. . . and I win all the internet pissing contests - I have a bladder the size of a fish oil capsule and I end up getting up to use the restroom constantly.


Ron - who is this "Dan" who is made of metal that you are reffering to?

Mythical creature I made up to replace Santa Claus after he died.

Hey, I'm coming back up there after Christmas (speaking of the late St. Nick) to go to the Emerald Bowl (a bowl of nuts, appropriate). Play your cards right and we all might all be able to meet up. Of course, I'll be drinking.

I'll be drinking.

be?


BE!


I thought you WERE already drinking.


We should try to do some drinking together. The Universe time dimension might collapse under the load (like mulitple black holes colliding), but who really cares about this reality anyway.

Well, I am at work. Kids get suspicious if I slur too much.

I know it may be hard to hook up this time since I'll be in SF in the middle of the week. Not even sure I'll be able to visit with Dan.

The itenerary has us in SF Tuesday (26th), football game Wednesday, return home Thursday. Lots of visiting SF's finest drinking establishments and maybe even a trip to the East Bay. Don't tell Minium, he might find me.

Jeremy Jones

There are some fine drinking establishments in Walnut Creek where I live (in the east bay, farther from SF than Oakland).

I'll let you pass out at our gym. There is some doggie pillows for you to sleep on.

Let me know a more detailed itinerary (via email) and maybe we can work something out.


If you want a sure way to find Dan, just go out to the Mission and get arrested. Then say that Dan S. said it was okay for you to do whatever you were doing.

OI!

No hijacking my welcome post to arrange any drinking related activities unless i'm invited!:cool:

Sorry Don, I thought you were included already.
Can you get to the SF Bay Area right after X-Mas? Do they have X-Mas in Aus? Or, do they wait until July when the weather is more fitting?

Jonsey, I'll send an e-mail.

Don, we were supposed to have a workout or beer when I was up there last year. Now you have to come to my 'crib'.


BTW did you ever get that thing for the ipod? (the 'otter' waterproof case wasn't it?)

How come nobody ever invites me to pass out at their gym? It's all I've ever wanted!

Yael,
the gym opens early in the new year at which point you can come and pass out in it if you want, feel better?

That's just a sympathy invite, don't go for it Yael! Heh

Yeah, that didn't seem sincere at all. He didn't even offer me doggie pillows. :(

Now that's when you know you have a friend. "Hey dude...you can use my sandbag."

Just because I don't like you doesn't mean you can't sleep on our concrete.:D

You can drag them off to a comfy corner and make a nest. There might even be a few folding mats to make a tent!

LOL. And if I go out back, I could gather some sticks, maybe, and build a wickiup!! :) Maybe I could start a little fire out back, too?

Now I just need to work out hard enough that I would need to crash out at the gym because I would be physically incapable of driving the two hours home...
