I was waiting for the sound that happens when Pacman gets eaten up by the ghosts as someone drops the weights on their head......

Am I the only person that was going crazy after listening to that for 30 seconds?

I've never seen OLers doing so many partials.

Any training reason why they don't lock hips and knees at the top of any exercise they did (except for the full lifts)?

Very cool. I took a peak here at work and one of the guys asked if I was playing Mario Brothers. Nah just looking at some hardcore lifting.

I lol'd.

Seriously though, i'd be too afraid of laughing mid-lift if I were playing that stuff in my headphones. Might make for some good weird looks if that was blasting through the gym speakers though.
