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.
should we stop mocking ******s at the sametime? How about gays and gypsies? I mean come on, jokes can hit home and hurt, yes, but thats risk we run when we try to bring the funny. Youre obviously going to be bias about people always making fun of physical attributes, but I honestly dont think its true that it is the predominent insult used. I think a lot of the stuff in this thread is really funny imo, and I would think you would agree. Some of it is over the line though, and again Id think you would agree. But how do you know where the line is if you dont push it and cross it sometimes?


anyways, on a serious note: Are fat people like clowns? On the outside they seem joyful and jolly, but deep inside they are really depressed and lonely? How about a fat clown? Is it like multiplying negatives where it becomes a positive, or is it more like addition? My guess would be addition imo. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
as soon as this thread disintegrated in a predictable manner, I told myself I wouldn't post in it unless someone descended into pure inarguable nazism

so...hi!

Idiots and people like Nath who aren't idiots but are failing to think critically,

Plz review my posts in this thread and quote the ones that insult/troll gobbo?
Well, you might not have insulted him directly, but you've earlier said that you think shame is a good motivator for ************, so considering the derisive tone (without being directly insulting) when talking about gobbo, it wouldn't be too far fetched to imagine that you're actually trying to be insulting.

Personally, I think you yourself think you have good intentions, but a sizable part of it is also some kind of funky psychological mechanism to distance yourself from your former fat self. But maybe not, it's kind of hard to make an accurate diagnosis based on a few posts on a message board. Just like maybe you shouldn't assert that gobbomom coddles gobbo (maybe you didn't in this thread, but you certainly have in other threads.)

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

BTYS,

Fair enough. You made it seem like weight is a passive choice. I've altered mine willingly and know that its difficult and requires choices, but so many people are eager to just explain away weight by saying people have no self-control.

All,

Isn't it obvious that better looking people get benefits in almost any field over ugly people? God forbid an effing PR campaign that will show people on TV. If Gobbo wasn't a freak, and really young, and very weird, Howard probably woulda said "He looks too round and jolly and doesn't arouse me like PA does."

My location/weight has been 218 for a while, and never 215. I have no idea what you're talking about.

The obvious play now is to sue for age discrimination since you have evidence that he might have denied you based on your age.
Yeah... even if Howard said, "We don't want anything to do with him because he is to young," you still don't have a case for age discrimination.

Also, good thread, especailly all of the "art work."

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.
No, I know it's awesome. It's my favorite restaurant in CU. I want to go!
Not really a fan of Jillian's food, but it has been fun to watch bears games at. I guess I suck at the food in CU, as its my senior year and I dont know where Jupiter's, Esquire, or Radio Maria are, and only recently even started to hear the name Radio Maria. At least now I have places to try.

I agree that Dids is a dick to gobbo, but

seems like a pretty good representation of how seriously anybody takes that maxim.

I tend to agree with private joker's stance. The word "freak" is poorly chosen, but even considering that I don't find what Howard said to be so terrible, and I doubt I'd give $10k to gobbo for promotional reasons, either. It is a funny gaffe that they included that, and gobbo seems to have a decent sense of humor about it. But I'd say at least a third of the respondents in this thread who complain about what a dick Howard is being here are probably bigger dicks on 2+2 on a regular basis, and they are doing so in a forum where it is intentionally rather than accidentally public.

HL and FTP support are obviously dumb asses. Sorry Gobbo that what started out as a great OP slid into people trying to make themselves feel better by making you feel worse.

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

With my hollowest apologies to all the fat-bashers and fat-basher-bashers, the only useful off-topic revelation in this thread has been about bacon sushi. Everyone please get back to work on you Howard/Gobbo/bacon sushi MSPaints and quit posting in this thread until you have something worthwhile to contribute.

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

Dids,

Here's a quote from you in this thread.

Quote:
How the [censored] am I boosting my own ego by pointing out that somebody most of the forum considers untouchable is not in healthy shape and that it's stupid for somebody else to wish to switch places with him?...It's really, really stupid for somebody to suggest that they'd trade his situation for theirs. That's all I'm saying. I'm not trying to insult gobbo. He knows he's fat, I can't imagine that somebody pointing that out, and pointing out how unhealthy that is is going to make him feel worse. I assume that he doesn't need to be treated with kid gloves.
How does that quote not say you think being fat is the worst thing in the entire universe? Gobbo is probably smarter than 95%+ of the population, he's got a loving mother, and he appears to be a happy guy with very close friends that stand by him. He's also making a very good living doing something he enjoys. Can't all of that outweigh (get it?) being fat? Especially since his weight is an issue he could overcome?


Here's another quote from you, from the "Fatties, my money where your mouth is" thread:

Quote:
This thread does mean a lot to me. Not so much for the money, which isn't ignorable, in part because I've been not doing something that in theory makes me money in the name of working out, but also because it's nice to have people like bison and others share that they care about me.
Did EricW posting your picture on HotorNot motivate you too?

People standing up for Gobbo in this thread are largely doing the same thing, and only feel the need to because some of the abuse he gets is amazingly harsh, particuarly considering how nice a guy he is, how active a member he is here, etc, etc. It's not like he started a thread about nailing two strippers and making $1M, and got all of this. He was just trying to post something very funny, and look what it has turned into.

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

Officially never making fun of gobbos weight again because dids just made it jump the shark.

Also I think people need to realize that this is just the way dids argues. I can certainly speak wrt arguing with dids and I will be the first to admit I am insanely over the top when arguing sometimes, but with dids its pretty much always "well ive made my point, if you disagree i am going to not listen and belittle you". I've seen it happen hundreds of times. Don't let it bother you, theres really nothing to be gained from it.

Also still not seeing any update on the bacon sushi. I kind of feel like gobbo is insulting us by focusing on such minor issues as being insulted about his weight when he could be talking about bacon sushi.
