    Craig's appeal is prototypical 21st century, a testosterone challenged male who's overcompensating. You see a male shirtless onscreen for about 5 seconds. For the other 1 hour and 55 minutes, wit,...

    Positive. I saw him. In person. What you posted is a photograph. Learn the difference. Actors become stars because they photograph well, not because they look great in person. Hugh Jackman looks...

    Quite a difference between Eastwood, Bronson and Steve Reeves.

    Most actors are in shape. Actually most actors are puny. I saw Hugh Jackman in person, and a stiff breeze would blow him away. ...

    Steve Reeves was a pretty marginal actor. And a lot of his movies had gay appeal.

    I think the current fad is because of the ubiquity of comic book movies. It will pass.

    Yes to liverwurst.

    I'm blocks from San Francisco's Chinatown. I found a place that makes duck liver sausage. And that stuff is awesome. You might see if you can find any in Asian markets.

    He exclaimed from the balcony.

    What would you replace this with? Tribalism? That's great. Move to Somalia and pick your favorite warlord.

    I see the opposite. With the emergence of travel ball, little-league becomes kid's whole lives complete with "eye-of-the-tiger" parents.

    Jesus, yes. And more frustratingly shirts are the opposite. I often have to get slim-fits even though I'm not a skinny guy. I'm 6'4", 240, and XL shirts often fit me like a maternity dress.

    Current projects hold that population will continue to climb until about mid-century and then fall, rapidly.

    Power Twister -- Any Value at All

    Yeah, I think that's it. My observation is that the carb advocates tend to be young and ectomorphic. I'm a big, bulky 45 y.o. and cutting fat and calories did nothing for me.
