So now we have to decide who to make fun of based on how easy it is for them to fix what it is we're making fun of?

My comparison would be idiotic if we were talking about someone with aids instead of an obese person. But we're not.
look, i don't give a [censored] what you do. you wanted me to respond to your post and i did.

i think it's wrong to make fun of a person for physical trailts such as this when they are clearly so disturbed by it. i've also made fun of g2cu for his gigantic forehead. the instant he starts to show that he's hurt by it, i'd stop. for all practical purposes i may be an internet douchebag, but i'm certainly not an [censored]

and i know that's "way too serious business" for an internet forum, but if gb is clearly as hurt by this as he has been for, [censored], his whole life, i don't feel right piling on him for it, and you clearly have shown you have no problem doing it.

whether or not he has the power to change is irrelevant, what exactly gives you the right to insist on it as aggressively and offensively as you do? (that last part is largely directed at dids)
maybe if some of those insults got through gobbo would change his ways!!! amirite guys? i'm not just trashing someone - it's self-improvement through insults!

btys my respect for you in this thread has gone up a lot

I don't understand. Dids has a round in the MSPaint tournament devoted almost entirely to him. How could he be a bad person?

Didn't you used to be a fat 1/2 NL player?

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

gobbo u need to stop reading this thread, i can safely say everyone that has met you in real life knows your a cool guy and a good person all around

but like nation said, you really need to hire a nutritionist or a physical trainer just as a start. i consider you a friend and i know you can get your weight down while still retaining the gobbo-love.

this starts with you, and by yourself this is something i am unsure you will want to do because its a tough journey on your own. but if you hire some personal trainer/nutritionist people, you know you'll have the support from your friends and the resources necessary to get yourself on the right track to a healthy life.

and note im saying healthy, not "less fat". because idgaf if someone is skinny or big, but i do care when either can potentially risk someone's health longterm. you're reaching a point where if you dont make an effort in the next 3 years, you prob wont make an effort after that imo.

so get in the right direction, por favor. danke.

I'd like everyone to think about your deepest insecurity, or your biggest flaw, then imagine that everyone on 2p2 not only knows about it but brings it up every time you post... How would that make you feel?...

clayton wins for being one of the few trying to get the message across properly, JP wins for saying what i was trying to say but was too busy multitabling to figure out the proper words in the english language to use for it.

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

triumphisright.

OOH let's give him tough love on the internet! this'll be a fun way to rip someone a new [censored] so i can feel better about myself while pretending i'm just giving tough love!

cut me a [censored] break, like gobbo doesn't already know he needs to get healthy. SIR DIDSINGTON will save the day though and his sharp insults will be just the thing to get gobbo in gear!

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

I am of the opinion that weight is a choice and, as a person who has had and recovered from significant weight issues, I feel like I am at least somewhat qualified to speak on the subject.

Unless gobbo tells me that he's been watching what he eats and exercising regularly, then I'm assuming he's choosing to remain overweight. If he was putting in significant effort and not seeing results, I would be more willing to re-consider my thoughts on whether his weight in a choice. But for now I basically assume that lowering his weight is not a high enough priority for him to take it very seriously (ie, gastric bypass, adding regular exercise, etc).

All of that being said, I don't look down on someone because they're overweight. In fact, I look up to gobbo in many ways due to his poker skills and because he's a very nice person. I've met him a number of times in person and I've always come away feeling like he's a good guy. In addition, I've been a supporter of his poker-wise for a long time dating back to his 11r days. The dude has skills.

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

serious question i'd really like to know the answer to

what do you really think you're accomplishing attacking/"helping" gobboboy?

dids, for instance, if during your whole weight loss program, everyone who was congratulating you on your progress and motivating you in general was instead saying you're morbidly obese (in the name of helping you, obv), how would you feel exactly?

that [censored] set me back a lot when i had to do it, and if you say it wouldn't for you, you're a liar

EDIT: i realize the difference you'll probably come up with is "at least i was making the effort at the time." i don't care. this [censored] is more likely to demotivate you and then you won't do anything at all for a while except gain the weight back

wow this thread had such good potential for being awesome and congrats, [censored], you've [censored] all over it instead. not that there isn't some good stuff in here, or that nation's posts aren't great, but the rest of this [censored] distracts from it too much. also, mods are not to insult, namecall, etc.
Loooooool Dids clearly never got THAT memo

All,

I think we're all missing the real point here. Namely, that gobboboy is fat, and as a fat person, his purpose in life has been legally reduced to being made fun of on the internet by people with a variety of physical, mental, and personality defects in order for them to feel better about their own pathetic misery.

Damn you Howard Lederer for turning BBV into a hatefest.

The least you could do is join in and give us your expert opinion on being fat.

Also lol @ the way this thread has gone.
What were you expecting? 10 pages of "LOL Howard, freak, weird LOL"? You got called a "freak," and the most obvious feature of yours that could be described as "freaky" is your weight.

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

People call you names based on your weight etc because that's such an easy target.


It actually takes relative effort to comment on your character.

That said, I don't know you, but from what i've heard, you seem like a really nice person, and that's what truly matters in my book.

Er, me? I've described him as being obese/fat when posting, but I've never said anything like, "lol fatty".

Me describing him as fat is no more/less insulting than me describing you as a liar. You are what you are.

Not to single you out at all, just using this quote as an example.

Why the hell must people single someone out for their physical attributes. I don't understand it. If it's something good then that's one thing but I don't understand why if you find something undesirable then why you have to immediately start bringing tons of attention to it and then hate on the person who exhibits the quality.

It's happened my whole life in every facet, and not just because I've been overweight most of my life. Why can't people just stfu about physical qualities and make fun of each other for being annoying douchebags instead.
:HOF

Keep up the ownage, on the tables and off.

Ok, so, Radio Maria???
top-notch


the tapas bar has now hired away the beer purchaser from the Blind Pig
--excellent selection of beers if one is into that
my roommate just came back from there a few hours ago stumbling drunk

alas, I spend most my time at Jupiter's, Esquire, and Jillian's shooting 8-ball

Jupiter's does thin crust pizza right--their sausage is quite good, but counts as two toppings instead of just one
I like that they have so many toppings I can eat there a few times per week and have a new creation every time
1/2 price on Tuesday nights!

Esquire features the normal bar fare of food...nothing too exciting...most people are enraptured by their polish sausage sandwich which they splice down the middle

Jillian's has a decent quesadilla and a really good chocolate cake


all of these things lead to me being chubby

I like it and think one would be insane to forego those foods





unfortunately, I do not share gobbo's love of Outback. Actually, I like outback, but the local outback is run by someone I know from numerous undergrad courses. We were paired student observers for a middle school BD/LD class...fun times. We kind of had a falling out when I was drinking buddies with one of his roommates and was somewhat involved with a trashing of his apartment (all fixable) during my drunken manwhore days.
