    So I know the science behind mesomorph, ectomorph, and endomorph or whatever they are, but I get so fucking irritated when my friends are having conversations (theyre all average, lean, fit guys) about how buff they are and they look at me and say, "You should really go to the gym makena...". I look at them and say I do go to the fucking gym. Granted I have only recently started to heavily lift frequently, I still think that I would be way bigger than them if I was also 5'6", around 150 pounds and small framed Oh and mostly asian. As childish as this is, I need comebacks guys. I would love to just kick their asses but thats not really worth getting into a physical fight over. I just need a snappy comeback. Oh and you cant use the whole small penis, asian thing.... Cause Im 25% chinese so they would just throw that back at me probably lol. GO

    My perfect comeback would be to ditch your friends and get some new ones.

    You know if you ditch the Mean Girl impersonation you'll have more success at attracting that man who can "hang with the guys" you mention having interest in...

    Assuming what they are doing isn't playful teasing as friends often do, then this is the best advice. Use it.

    Friends do not tear you down to build themselves up.

    If it's just playful teasing ask then if you can accompany them to the gym and work out with them. Ask them for training and nutrition advice.

    The best "comeback" is to beat them at their own game.

    Don't get it--they're all short, or shorter than you?
    Short guy's are very self conscious of their height.
    I use; little man, get back to me when you grow up, where is your step later.

    Thank you guys, hahaha, but to be fair its mostly in fun and games. Theyre by no means "mean girls". in fact, theyre straight haha. We all tease each other a shit ton, but this is just one topic where theyre able to gang up on me. By no means do i plan to ditch them for some teasing, but it does piss me off when i dont have a comeback for them and they win haha. I like the idea of working out with them, im usually a workout alone type of person. Or teasing them about their height, are guys really that self conscious about it? i didnt realize.

    Why do you need comebacks? Just say, " Oh, I do sometimes." and then drop it. Sparring with remarks is silly.

    And for some people it's considered fun. I love a good sparring partner. icon_biggrin.gif

    Yes, _____ we all know you are a the perfect specimen of a manly physique. When I get a moment I will schedule the award ceremony so we can all praise you forever. Until then, pass me the yummy chocolate cake you deprive yourself of.


    Think about it ______ ...if you did not have me around, you might not look as good in comparison.

    If I lose too much weight, I'll also lose my bubble butt which I know you enjoy

    Not very "manly" but you could be honest and tell them that it hurts your feelings and to please stop.

    I think some of you are missing the obvious, which the OP mentioned. He likes these friends, and like guys do they spar and fun with each other. He wants witty comebacks (which at least dustin and hello gave him) and wants to play, too.

    To the OP, I agree: use your height advantage. And I'm sure you won't use it in a mean way, but commensurately playfully with the situation you are in with your buds. I've enjoyed that advantage in the playful banter, and I've taken my share of tall jokes, too, and I'll say I'm way ahead in that category because men are as envious of height as they are of "size" (and I'm not talking muscle mass! icon_wink.gif ).

    Have fun with them . . . and at the same time work out with them . . . and as you get bigger on your frame (if that's what you want), you'll end up being a God among them as men.

    ... just make a fist and pound them on the head - straight into the ground like a pin. They'll understand you "go to the gym" well enough... icon_cool.gificon_lol.gif

    Tell them how much you enjoy spending time with all your "little friends".

    Pacific Islanders - generally - are on the beefy side genetically and you're a BIG guy - so you'll have to work harder IF you wanna be more cut. There's tons of articles on here 'bout that, but I'm sure you can do it if you really put your mind to it. Good luck with whatever course you take. Honestly, I think they're just a bit jealous of your height/stature.

    I'm confused.
    What does "makena" mean?
    All I got out of that was that they said "you should really go to the gym".
    I'm not even sure that's impolite - depending on tone and the nature of your relationship.

    I mean - impolitic sure, but you're 20? Not having acquired social sensitivity to pick up when comments are appreciated and when not vs being malicious are two different things.

    Do you really need a comeback? If you don't want them to rag on you just say so. If what actually bothers you is your body type (not that I think it should) then maybe change up your workout routine.


    Granted, I may just be missing something.


    (PS: not sure what you think the "science behind ___morphs" is.
    Um... speaking as a scientist: those are just fancy words for "medium", "skinny", and "fat". They don't have some fundamental genetic association. They're mostly just used to de-emotionalize the terms for the purpose of more formal discussion.
    There are genetic differences between people, yes. But they're rarely a significant barrier to high-level (~top 1-5%) achievement. )

    Haha thank you for your post back, but once again the whole point is that these ARE my friends and they are just have friendly banter. I was merely asking for any wise ass remarks back if anyone had one. Oh and Makena is my name, haha. If you read one of my last posts, you'll see that we all make fun of each other, but thats just an instance where they can gang up on me. I meant this to be more funny than serious I guess. And for those scientific names... i just remember learning them in high school. But as for the genetics only affecting someone 1 - 5 % is not true.... People do have body types... height, weight (potential), eye color, hair color, etc are all determined by genetics dude... Im not blaming my genetics for my structure, in fact I like my structure. But I do believe it plays a big role in someone being able to gain muscle easily, lose fat easily, or etc.

    Gotcha. icon_smile.gif

    Re: genetics: um, means of quantification being varied there's no specific number, but that's quite true. (I'm a scientist just FYI.) Top 1-5% is NOT top professional athlete level -- to be clear. But most of the processes associated with general health and athleticism (muscle function, fat %, V02 max, etc.) are inherently dynamic.

    Their maximum's and some details are controlled by genetics. However the VAST majority of variance between peoples is a function of behavior - of input into that system.
    In the same way that while there might be some genetic components to intelligence when it comes to reading, math, etc. most of the difference between people is educational application. (Anyone can do calculus -- most don't try to learn it.)

    The nature of the dynamic mechanisms associated with athleticism are such that impairment in them would keep you out of that top 1-5% would also probably kill you as a fetus or otherwise render you extremely diseased.
    Take your average guy who never goes to a gym -- they are way above their health minimum. The only reason they can stand, and walk across a room without falling down is because the same anabolic and other adaptive mechanisms that make for a professional athlete are functioning to make their body work -- though merely adapted to the level of exertion it is normally subject too.


    So yeah. The vast majority of variance in human athletic health is purely a function of behavior. Not genetics. (This is very different than "eye color" or "height" -- those are not or minimally dynamic and thus genetics is the primary factor accounting for human variation.)

    but if they were your friends, why would they even think of saying something like that that would offend you? throwing racist jokes @ you? i understand joking around and etc BUT some things aren't funny. don't be afraid to tell them when they're going overboard or crossing the line. if they're your friends, they'll get the point.
    oh well i guess he likes it!!!! icon_rolleyes.gif

    Comebacks require creativity...and creativity only sounds right coming from the person who created the idea in the first place....sooo if we give you comebacks, it probably wouldn't sound right coming from your mouth. icon_lol.gif
