Me too. I thought this quote from OP's link was pretty funny though.

Quote:
He looked just as natural with a bong in his hands as he does swimming in the pool. He was the gold medal winner of bong hits.

Plus in 2012 hes going to be way past his prime and cant live up to the massive image he created in these olympics, so he will only be a disappointment in everyones eyes.

Hes basically got a pretty narrow window to cash in, and hes effing it up.
A narrow window to cash in? lol? They said the other day that hes already locked up over 100 million in endoresments...I dont think he will have trouble feeding his family if he doesnt make another penny.

Dude, I backed you in the half-triathlon deal, but this is just amazingly wrong. That would mean that 1m people a year die alcohol related deaths. No way that's possible. Number is closer to 200 a day.

Also, the guy who wrote the letter saying this: "I work my ass off 10 months per year." lolol. Phelps worked his ass off every day for 4 straight years. Working 10 months a year maybe gets someone to Nationals.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

My first thought is BFD, who cares, he's a young guy and likes to party and most people in college are either getting drunk every weekend or getting high or both. He was in Europe at the time and it might not have even been illegal where he was.

Yes, it's rather stupid to let people take pictures of you doing it because you risk lots of $.

I never even knew he had a DUI conviction until today and I read about this story. The media completely ignored it because it didn't fit the image they were trying to portray. It goes to show you how little a person has control over their media image really. You can be a total asshat and do horrible things and if the media wants to portray you as a hero they will. Likewise if the media is dead set to portray you as scum it doesn't matter what you do, they'll make you look awful.

Whatever the mainstream media decides to paint you as = what the vast majority of the public believes

thousands may be an exaggeration but without looking at the statistics, i can in full confidence state that more people died yesterday from alcohol than on an average day.

Why can't he do what he wants? Only has a few months where he's not training and can live it up. Weeds not bad. calling smoking weed, nearly vick-level is just crazy.
It's illegal. And he's costing himself a ton of money, not to mention engaging in activity which might lead to a failed drug test that hurts his competitions.

if you already have $100 million, why should it matter if you prevent yourself from earning another $100 million? this OMG HE'S COSTING HIMSELF SO MUCH MONEY argument is ridiculous. that money would matter to you. it barely matters to him.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

The only thing that truly mattered is that Michael Phelps was surfing 2+2.

Wonder if he's a member and what his user handle is?

I sense a gimmick handle coming.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

I am waiting for the input of someone with millions of dollars in their possession to comment on the margin of utility of millions of dollars. Seems to me rich people don't stop trying to make money once they become rich, but I don't know, you never hear from those who just retire quietly at a young age.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

why would a billionaire need more money? they have a billion dollars (or more). i would imagine most people would struggle to spend a billion dollars in their lifetime. and yet most billionaires don't retire once they hit the billion mark. this could either be because they have ludicrous spending habits, or they are driven by something beyond the utility of the money. which do you think is more likely?

now scale it down.

So baseball players in the 90s who didn't do steroids are dumb because they missed out on $$$$$? Or is not doing something because it's banned better than willingly doing something that you enjoy?

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

lol:

Quote:
[...] he still could face criminal charges if it's determined that he was smoking marijuana, which shouldn't be too difficult considering there's a photo and Phelps has already confessed:

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says he will charge Michael Phelps with a crime if he determines the Olympics hero smoked marijuana in Richland County...


...Possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days in jail or a $570 fine, plus court costs.

But Lott seems to be the only person talking about making a case against Phelps. Both the USC and Columbia Police Departments said they would not pursue charges.
