    You can laugh. They can't actually hear you. That's not one of their powers.

    We stayed at a resort this weekend with a huge pool with grotto and slide. The first day we're there I see two gentlemen with downs arrive at the pool like they own the entire place. First guy must have had a 60 inch waist, but he gave no fucks. He was like perfectly round. Next thing I know there's a HUGE splash; I look up and it's that guy coming off the slide. All of a sudden he erupts out of the water and yells, "YES!!!!!!" with his arms out as wide as possible. Reminded me of this:

    The other guy was wearing a shirt but he looked like god damn Schwarzenegger in his prime. No joke, this guy was yoked up. When it was his turn to slide, he hit the water, stood up, and fist pumped. They were so awesome. I literally ignored my kid to watch them because I couldn't take my eyes off them.

    as if they already couldn't deadlift you for a clean set of 10, they have now discovered weightlifting.

    That was powerlifting in which the deadlift is one of the events. Weightlifting is an entire different sport:comicbookguy:

    Based on the cover... nothing. Just reminded me of this thread and TMB’s glory days. Thought I would bump the thread as it has helped me through many mundane work days in the past. I prefer to not just take from the board but to actively contribute. Stop being sensitive and get out of here with that next level faggotry.

    A low functioning student that I have has a goal of treadmill for 30 minutes at 1.5 mph

    I will always ask him if he needs to go to the bathroom

    The answer is exclusively no

    Two minutes into our treadmill escapade, he persistently diarrheas himself volcano eruption style

    Never fails

    His response is to laugh

    Relatively speaking, I’m significantly anti-PC, anti-SJW, etc., but pump the brakes on the nonsense that folks disapproving of the use of the word “nog” is somehow a bad thing. Odds are you’re not a nice person if you think posters ought to use that word (unless, of course, it’s preceded by the word “egg”).

    I never approved of saying nog or nigga or all the dumb racist shit people used to say on here. It’s just lame to see a thread like this here or anywhere else. It’s especially lame with the recent wave of conspicuously wannabe bleeding hearts that have pervaded the board in recent years.

    You’re making fun of people born with disabilities through no fault of their own. It’s pathetic.

    What’s funny about people with disabilities? People who go through life getting shit on and made fun of are apparently here for your amusement. Give us some insight, Mr. I Still Call People Faggot on the Internet Guy.

    Am I the only one who took the book post as a positive? I want my kid reading stuff like that so at a young age she can understand that kids with down are really no different and they can be your friends even if they seem different. Same reason I bought her the Bundo book, and have several books starring minority characters and same reason she has a bunch of minority dolls....

    Getting pissy over that post seems way misguided.
