This is great!

Funny thing to notice is just how people ignore weirdos these days.

Just look at them sitting on the bench beside the "crazy" woman, standing beside on the streets... LOL!

Ha, ha! made all the funnier by the fact that those dumbbells...
In reply to Detail Man, Jan 25, 2012

...in the first picture are the same as a pair I carry (and swing around in strange fashion) when I am walking (no good just exercising the legs, got to get some upper body and arm stuff going too!).

I've had them for years. Today -- just a few hours ago, I was walking and got a stone in my shoe. So preparatory to taking off my shoe and extacting the stone, I dumped the weights on the grass, and as luck would have it, one landed across the other. There was a subdued "snap!" and the dumbbell broke in the middle! Turns out is is very cheap cast iron (of course it is) with the texture of honeycomb and it broke along a preexisting crack line!

I've glued the two pieces together with Araldite and will be swinging them about with my usual gusto again tomorrow.

Cheers, geoff

That "Araldite" must surely be some "badass goop" ! ...

It just occured to me that there are a whole lot of posers around here who really could stand to brush up on their chops quite a bit. It should be so subtle that the game is not even recognized ...

That first link (the men) is just hilarious. But only hilarious.

The second (real-life women doing poses in public spaces) is hilarious AND socially relevant.

Highlights the vast gap between fantasy and reality
In reply to Detail Man, May 3, 2012

Yes, model poses look utterly absurd, in the absence of context, both physical and sexual.

The video, especially, cracked me up. I can imagine Professor Lupus pointing his wand at a model and saying "Ridiculous".

As a follow on, I'd like to see women in men's poses, especially the clothing ads where the men usually aren't wearing shirts.... but that would tend to negate the absurd aspect, wouldn't it?

Depends on the rest of the image (cntext, styling, facial expression) but cannot be shown here anyway
