You looked better before, probably healthier too. Genuinely.

Don't forget Humorist.  I was going to say comedian, but his bits are so meaningful and the satire is so spot on that "comedian" does not do him justice.

For a moment, I thought this was a clip of Jean-Michel Saive playing! 

In my first glance, I thought it was Jonyer (1975).

Also, how did the weight loss impact your TT?
I can't comment, I already crossed a line hijacking the OP and won't go any further.

you got meeeee!
I have to say I am less patient than before, maybe because I am aging and time is running out.
Feeling like a underachieved guy who never reached his potential, do I hit on other people relatively to a big win of mine because they are better than me at things I'd like to excel? it's very possible as bard romance suggested. I never thought of it and I need to. Thanks for the food for thoughts to both of you.

Or maybe it touches a nerve that even at a higher weight, Larry plays at a higher level? 

Maybe if I gained enough weight I could play at Larry's level.

Funny but true. Lesson learned:  Post online messages do have some unpredicted consequences. Nobody is talking how great heavespin is to win current CEO long time ago. I believe that is original message.

It comes from Larry advancing his overweight condition as a fun feature as soon as he gets an opportunity, my stance is ONE answer to his numerous jokes about his own weight; the fact that he is a popular and influential figure makes it deserving of an answer. I did not mean to be aggressive, only objective and direct, that's where it came from.

On a less personal note, has anyone figured out how non-vegetarians “spiritually dominate”?

I am not a vegetarian but I do not see spiritual domination as part of my daily life, maybe I am missing out? 
I was talking about some vegan's perception of themselves, a non negligible chunk of the vegan community think they are spiritually superior because of their veganism and they are highly annoying.

My secret goal is to see Larry taking on the challenge, he would be a health poster child. If I could do it of course he can but he is so much more visible he could make a huge change, leading by example.

he is one of them, I am sure of it, nobody raise their level to close to 2400 by being weak.

no need to sugar coat with intelligent and strong people, they don’t like it. If he gets angry at me for that then he is less smart than I thought so be it, let him explode and throw his half digested chicken wings towards the 4 cardinal points but at least he knows what kind of thoughts he inspires with his game, diet and posting style as a combo.
Fat shaming it was not; the same way he is not fat advertising directly (only subliminally).

As I said, take it to PM.  Or develop a sense of humor because you sure as hell do not understand Larry's.

I am not here to protect Larry's feelings, as I said, and I doubt he cares about your take on the subject one way or the other. 

I simply think you are rude and grossly out of line.  It is not hugely unexpected, but should still be checked.

are you trying to make us believe that your question to Larry above did not point at his weight? Your way was more subtle than mine I give you that.

I don't know how he look like now. I may talk and post a lot here but i am not involved in any politics or anyone's personal life.

Frankly I find inappropriate to expose your tt talent and awesome touch in conjunction with one of the biggest health problem in the USA, especially since you enjoy so much how round you are and never miss an opportunity to put your obesity forward along with various killing buffets, even though your fh push analogy was incredibly smart and funny, I am still laughing about it. It's just not OK to sneakily infer that one can be super fat and happy, it is not true, you have no idea how good you'd feel and how proud of yourself you'd be after resolving what is a real personal problem.

That lack of discipline is a shame to our game and life in general. "Look how fat I am and I can beat you and your slim, thin, lean body!" That's a bunch of crap, the relevant battle must be fought against yourself.

Anyway, we lost Barry but let's keep Larry; so try that:


It's hard the 1st 3 weeks and after that something awakes in you and it's amazing. The 2nd hardest part will be to deal with nuts who use animal cruelty as a tool to spiritually dominate and shout how better they are, just ignore those f**king idiots, focus on the nutrition and environmental aspects of it.

Please, understand that my post is a defensive move against what I consider a direct attack on well being. I was 231 lbs at 5'9" and now that I am back to 155 (after a year starting in 06/17, 6lbs a month is really reasonable and safe) eating fresh and organic 5 times a day and never really hungry, I can't stand smart, talented and charismatic people like you when they advertise their terrible weakness with such a fake pride.

yeah yeah yeah...$%&@ me, I know...

PS: I used your 1st name because you share it in your profile.


going from eating the world to vegan and being super happy?
sounds like fake.

I eat whatever I want but not so much quantity that I would be super fat.
