    This is amazing.  I have neighbors who come downstairs to our gym in the building and turn on Jilian on their laptop and dance away.  It's kind of adorable because they're a really nice couple.  It seems like something older people would do, but they're both like my age (late 20s early 30s).

      e = mc2 accounts for my hoo-ha's behavior?

       

      Bigger hoo-ha's = more energy?

        Can it warp space time?

          Yes, to a small extent.

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

             Bigger hoo-ha's = more energy?

             

            Some of the emails I get say so.

              The thing that I find most strange is the people who come to the treadmill - walk for a few minutes (drinking copiously from their water bottle during that time) and then stop and leave. Why bother coming to the gym for that?

               

              Well, agreed the should do more than a few minutes, but, it's a motivational thing.

               

              If they want to pay their 20, 30, 40 dollars a month to walk 10 minutes on the treadmill to make themselves feel better, then, live and let live.

                At the gym for students at the University of Arizona, there would ALWAYS be these fossily old guys that would sit around naked for eons after they showered.  They would sit there then proceed to apply powder to their entire body.

                 

                It was so disturbing.  I've never changed clothes so quickly in all my life.

                Just because I look dumb doesn't mean I'm not...

                  This is what they refer to as a "NOMSS" gym. At least that's the phrase they use around here.

                   

                  Refers to the "Naked Old Man Social Society". Rule of thumb is the fewer the clothes, the more the chit chat.

                   

                  Quite fascinating, actually.

                    I go to our work gym. I suppose everyone is a bit more reserved/civilized as I don't see too much weirdness. It is a bit off-putting  when a colleague in the locker room wants to have an extended, work-related conversation with his meat and two veg hanging out. Can't this wait until our next meeting?

                      My life is boring..I gotta get out more.......I would join this gym simply for the theatrics..show up everyday with a folding chair and a six pack. Definitely a book writing opportunity!

                        That would be awesome.  I would pay a portion of your membership to have you come to my gym with a folding chair and a six pack.

                          I no longer have a gym membership, but when I used to go to a large franchise gym, there were always these gender confused people (I'm from Thailand) yelling at the top of their voices and occupying all the machines without actually using them. Any attempt to tell them to be quiet or free up would result in them calling in the management people to complain about discrimination. Disapprove

                           

                          So eventually I moved to a small, local gym that's owned by a golf club. It's really quiet and everyone keeps to their own workout routines. That is until one day five hundred stark naked Korean men crammed in to the showers. I've never seen so many balls in my life. And they probably thought I was the weird one.

                              My gym is pretty weird too.  I just joined.  There are these weird machines that go round and round and back and forth.  The people look absurd on them.  There are guys hanging off bars and girls running without going anyplace.  No one looks at anyone but everyone looks at everyone else.   I look at all these buttons and just start pushing them.  Next thing you know I'm on "Everest Climb" and looking for "Easy Stroll" so I don't have a "Cardiac Event".

                               

                              And there's often some weird woman doing some soft-core-porn buttock exercises over by the orgy balls.  Or whatever they're called.
