Why Go To The Gym?

Speaking of 6 pack abs………

Another Sunday and Spring is creeping into the local weather patterns…..warm days, cool nights and fog….ergo Spring.

Cut the chit chat and get to the stuff…..

I read an article in a Russian source that I just had to share……

Are you a member of a gym?

You may be gay!

A Malaysian newspaper has published a gay-spotter’s checklist. It includes things like being a gym member or having a beard as signs of male homosexuality.

The helpful list of hints on how to spot members of the LGBT community has been published in the Malaysian daily newspaper Sinar Harian, alongside a piece featuring Islamic cleric Hanafiah Malik deploring the rise of homosexuality, which many Muslims consider sinful, in the south-east Asian country.

“[They] like going to the gym but not for exercising, but to ogle others,” reads one of the bullet points, adding that gay men have a penchant for beards and branded clothes and that their eyes light up when they see a handsome slice of beefcake



With that I leave you to contemplate the possibility…….surely someone will take this report seriously…..but I am not one of them.

Last day of a restful weekend…..hope your was as restful as mine……be well, be safe…..chuq

Dark Side Of The Olympics

In case my reader is unaware…..the 23rd Olympics is in full swing (the  US is not doing so well)….one of the more popular events of the Olympics is figure skating (I had rather watch Curling)…..but this sport has a darker side (not the same as the darker side of gymnastics)…..eating disorders…..

Figure skating….all the beauty and grce hides some ugly side effects…..

The figure skating competition has grabbed headlines at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

However, two competitors who made huge impact four years ago are absent from the Games.

US skater Gracie Gold, 18 at the Sochi Olympics four years ago, seemed destined for bigger things after winning team bronze, while 15-year-old Russian skater Yulia Lipnitskaya dazzled the crowds with her flexibility, grace and technique on the way to gold.

But due to eating disorders, both have quit the sport permanently.


Not something they want to hype for the games for it may dampen the enthusiasm for the games.  That is the ugliness……image is more important the sport.

Doping is not the worse thing that could happen to a competitor.

Body image is a real problem apparently….I even heard an announcer comment that one of the curlers had to lose 30 lbs if he wanted to be on the team….really?  You have to have 6 pack abs to slide a stone down the ice?
