    The gym always has it's share of characters right?

    I've been to about 7 different gyms and every gym seems to have a number of characters in them. I'll have to qualify this thread by saying I'd be considered one of the characters because I'm asocial when I train. If you're not training with me I'll avoid eye contact or stare through you and just focus on me. No doubt, I'm not there on a social call. People find that weird so I'd guess I'd be considered one of the characters. Anyway, I frequently see a couple I call Sado and Masico. The guy plays a domineering, macho drill seargent role as he "trains" his wife, incorrectly I might add, with movements that are so weird looking they defy common sense, I'd have to guess that he must have made them up or modified them from the real ones. At one point, for example, he had a forty five pound plate on her stomach as she was doing what looked like flies but her arms were locked out straight, unlike conventional flies. As the dude barked directives at his chick I looked around to read the faces of other gym members and they looked just as amused or nonplused. They too were searching faces to see if others were taking notice of the spectacle. Seems like a classic mysoginist/narcissist but if that's what they are both into...to each there own I guess. Than there's this couple my girl friend calls "WWF" who pull up in a big hummer with his platinum blond girlfriend who plays the role of cheerleader during his set but also looks scanning the room seemingly for reactions. She plays drums on his butt right before each set. He wears a wifebeater and frayed baseball cap, all tattoed out, pierced nipples overload, and makes loud noises leading up to his set, as in look at me everyone! At least, that's how it comes across to me. The two of them are looking around and seem very self-conscious - almost uncomfortable in the gym but their trip seems to be about putting on a show. I notice these people between major muscle groups when I sit down on a bench and take a break and it occurs to me, wow, so that's what's going on when I'm not in my own world. Interesting. Carnavalesque.

    Thanks for the compliment. No but I've taken English courses - went to SUNY New Paltz. Have you ever been up there? Man, you should see the trails and mountain ridge up there. Nice if you're into hiking, climbing or you're a nature lover in general. Plenty of psychodelics up there too. Goes good with the scenery and the pagan events!

    That seems a little bit "hit and run" ish....but if you wanted to share your oppinion maybe there's more nobility in following through and backing your oppinions. "Crazy" is kind of like name calling. Crazy because....and then you give a reason, now we're onto a potentially mature dialogue. I stand behind things I say even if it makes me unpopular and it often does as you can see in some of my threads. And, you'll never see me attack a person in terms of a supposed trait (e.g., crazy) here or eslewhere. Frankly, if I or anyone else believed they were not a little crazy, I would have to think that they may be crazy themselves. But than again, who am I to be vain and pass judgement? No what I mean?
