    You joined two weeks ago and have already declared that almost everyone here is a "CUNT." It is so nice to welcome new members!

    (What a "civilized" word, by the way.)

    Well, here's an alternate view of 'civilized' Wales, as presented by Weebls:



    Not claiming it's quite my view, but the point is we can all be assholes about where everyone is from. Or we can just be, well, civilized.

    To all the rude, nasty Americans with their Cymrophobia (hatred of Welsh people), here is what I say to you:

    Well, we are all soooo interested in your CUNTISH Welsh attitude. THANKS! Thanks, tons... really... thanks for being so real. We would all be such fake assholes without your frankness and candor.... thanks again.

    I've met more than a few Welsh, and they've been fantastically friendly people. A good number of them are somewhat distant family of mine. You do them a lot of injustice on this forum.

    Being frank isn't the same as being a dick, which you will hopefully understand by the time you grow up.

    So I'm going to hijack this thread at this point and rant about the youth.

    There seems to be this premium on being 'real', which in my mind seems to boil down to being an unvarnished pig. Do people realize that politeness exists for the purpose of making life in close quarters with other people livable? To reduce our stress level in dealing with each other?

    I realize that appearing to be genuine in expressing appropriate behavior is a virtue. But when your deepest, most truly held feelings are inappropriate, well . . . nobody cares a rat's ass to be subject to them. Nobody thinks you're cool, nobody thinks you're a badass, nobody is impressed in the slightest. We laugh at you, which is sad because obviously you're hypersensitive to the opinions of others.

    Do they realize they come across as self-centered, uneducated, low class, poorly raised baboons?

    Hurr durr well I sure don't know nothin bout dem fancy pants Welsh gyms, but round these here parts when we want a little bit of ex or size, we go out back and wrassle the hogs before we club em over the head and cook us some bacon and taters. I hurd a guy who could take down three hogs all at once with a beer in his hand and not lose a drop. Ain't no one messes with him.

    Hell, I even gots me a cousin who could work you out pretty good and put some meat on dem bones, the good almighty Lord in heaven knows she does me rightly so.

    To be fair guys, I'm pretty sure he was in Buffalo while he was in the US. If that's all he saw, I'm not surprised he found the US to uncivilized. That place is a hole.

    Jesus you guys are ripping the OP apart... Although there is a big difference between 'speaking your mind' and being rude, and your post does sound a bit uppity! haha

    I would suggest joining the juicer gym. It might be awkward at first but it sounds like a lot less hassle then the other options.

    Hey lets try and be reasonable to the OP here, he's new to RJ and wants some real answers, lets try and help him out!

    My suggestion on all points is to see (you might have to ask around) what this gym and any others might have as far as a "new year special"... true, that doesn't happen until the start of the new year, but if they do have some kind of special rate for (in most cases New Years Resolutioners), that might help you significantly over the long term. If that were the case, you would need to find a "stop gap gym" in the meantime (some places in the US, like "Planet Fitness" one can just join for a month).

    If you want to proceed and join, instead of waiting for others to sign up so they can "run the course", see if you can get a member to give you an inpromptu course so you can get familiar with all that they have. If the gym requires you to go through their "approved course", ask if in the meantime you can go through it informally one on one with someone and that when they are ready to run their course, you can take it then (but have access to the facility now.

    As far as your arm question, if you can't use the gym, I'd suggest asking where there might be some barbell/ dumbell, etc around (maybe at a school or at someone's home) that you might use.

    I can imagine that it is really a pain having to go through this.... I've be really irritated myself, but go the extra mile and given a little time, may work itself through. Good luck with your workouts and welcome to RJ!

    7Famark saidback in civilized Wales...the United States isn't civilized? Lol, good way to start your question

    Photobucket


    Agreed. Why don't you just ask your "civilized" Welsh friends?

    As an "uncivilized" American, may I be the first to wish you good riddance...

    A man from Wales, you will find
    Says whatever on his mind
    From what he says, we must conclude
    What's on his mind is pretty crude.

    Hey Gwynn,

    1. Never unfortunately been in a situation like that
    2. If its club policy, try talking to the dean or if there's a manager there see if you can possibly sign a 'waiver' of their responsibility until you've done your induction.
    3. Probably not, it sounds like they need someone to do the induction who is paid to do it - you could try to find out how that works, who it is and ask them for creative help.
    4. Get yourself some resistance bands for flyes and rows, do push ups on incline, medicine balls in the facility. Do pull ups wherever you can too.

    p.s. Glad you're back where you wanted to be - its time to move on and not be so emotive about the USA... ok?
