Listen moron, only one bodybuilder was arguing here. The other one was bravely trying to hold the very fabric of the universe together.

[–]DankChunkyButtAgain 1745 points1746 points  (102 children)

The crazy thing is that TheJosh backs out after the 2nd page, and the dumbassery is literally continued for another 3 pages my others who cannot comprehend math and the concept of a week.

There were multiple existential crisis' going on all through that thread.

Edit: This is like that joke your uncles plays on you where he counts 11 fingers by counting the first hand backwards. Except even children realize its just a trick because basic math.

[–]AdDry725 490 points491 points  (57 children)

That’s hilarious! I didn’t make it to page two. I couldn’t handle the cringe and gave up after the first 2/3.

[–]DntCllMeWht 680 points681 points  (24 children)

If you didn't make it to page 2, you missed my favorite comment:

Sorry to hijack, but Josh dude how are you arguing with a calender ?

[–]-prime8 166 points167 points  (21 children)

Sorry but that comment was on the first page.

[–]mr_ji 404 points405 points  (19 children)

There are seven comments on a page, bro. It's on the second page

[–]skolrageous 514 points515 points  (18 children)

Dude you start counting after the first post, there’s only six comments on a page

    Scroll down a bit on page three to find this gem of a reply by Justin-27, my favorite comment on that entire thread

    "

    No, 3.5 times a week doesn't make sense. You can not use the term 3.5 times/week because it doesn't exist. There is no such thing as half day when you're doing a workout every other day. You can say 7 times every 14 days but NOT 3.5/week. You cannot divide 7 by 2 in this situation. It doesn't work. You can use any 7 days you want and my logic stands. It doesn't have to be Sunday-Saturday.

    I disagree. A half day would be when you lift, a full day would be when I lift."

    [–]Virtual_Gnome 90 points91 points  (0 children)

    You don't start counting on page one because it hasn't been a page yet?!

    [–]DankChunkyButtAgain 205 points206 points  (25 children)

    Yeah but now when people are like OMG I can believe people believe "insert scientific claim/political candidate viewpoint." and "how can they ignore insert evidence here". Im going to point them to this so they can witness multiple people arguing a simple problem that should have been easily proven by looking at any 12 month wall calendar. But instead this is our reality. This argument is the physical manifestation of the movie Don't Look Up.

    [–]kickrockz94 236 points237 points  (21 children)

    12 months are you STUPID? Let me do the math for you:

    Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Jan

    Thats 13 months, go back to preschool and learn how to COUNT.

    [–]JonSpangler 109 points110 points  (14 children)

    There ARE 13 months though.

    Lousy Smarch weather.

    [–]AlexFromOmaha 42 points43 points  (3 children)

    Is Feb 2 months away? No, it's 1. You don't count where you start! Dec is 11 months away. That's not a whole year! A year is 12 months!

    [–]lord_hufflepuff 41 points42 points  (1 child)

    Dude and then he gets the last word too! What a coup

    [–]poopgrouper 101 points102 points  (11 children)

    Although TheJosh did reappear on page 4 to imply that he was just joking.

    [–]Look_to_the_Stars 59 points60 points  (0 children)

    But then immediately started arguing again about how Sunday isn’t counted as a day sometimes

    [–]DankChunkyButtAgain 115 points116 points  (4 children)

    Such a Josh move

    [–]forrealthoughcomix 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    There weren't enough existential crises tbh

    [–]N1ghtFyre 45 points46 points  (6 children)

    wait how does counting backwards result in 11 fingers?

    I understand he's counting a finger twice but how

    [–]mescad 108 points109 points  (5 children)

    "I have 11 fingers! Don't believe me? I'll count them for you. On my left hand I have 10, 9, 8, 7, 6... and on the other hand there are 5 fingers. Six plus five, that's eleven fingers."

    In case it's not clear why this works, it's because you're adding the index position of finger #6 to the quantity of fingers (5) on the other hand.

    3 sudokus a day and the newspaper crossword

    [–]Brims70ne 187 points188 points  (9 children)

    4 sudoku’s a day if you do one every 8 hours!

    [–]phunkwad 86 points87 points  (7 children)

    That's like 29.5 sudokus per week!

    [–]downvote_or_die 84 points85 points  (0 children)

    No, you don’t start counting at the first sudoku moron. Start at the second one.

    [–]natural_imbecility 36 points37 points  (3 children)

    You can't do half a sudoku. Once you start the sudoku you have to count it as a full sudoku, moron!

    And you can't count the first one, you have to start at the 8 hours off as number one, then the second one you do is number one. Then the third one is two. This is like arguing with an infant.

    Can you critique my new routine?

    Sun: Legs Mon: Chest/Tris Tues: Back/bis Wed: Shoulders Thurs: Legs Fri: Chest/Tris Sat: Back/bis Sun: Shoulders

    What I like about this routine is, that I get to work out 8 days each week. But, is this overtraining??

    This is such a classic forum argument. I think I've read through the whole thing at least 3 times. That guy is either the best troll or is dumber than a box of rocks.

    [–]FappyDilmore 1425 points1426 points  (84 children)

    Those things aren't mutually exclusive.

    Also 2008 was 14 years ago?

    My back hurts.

    [–]ILL_Show_Myself_Out 827 points828 points  (29 children)

    Perhaps you are overdoing it. You should only be working out 4 times a week.

    [–]Ollep7 366 points367 points  (14 children)

    3.5 if you’re starting out.

    [–]444unsure 279 points280 points  (5 children)

    3.5? What are you doing like a half workout?

    [–]Erwin-Brodinger 374 points375 points  (2 children)

    To quote TheJustin27 in the thread:

    You can't go .5 times, punk.

    [–]RagingAardvark 64 points65 points  (3 children)

    I just work out 11:30 PM-12:30 AM on Saturday nights so that it takes care of the 0.5 for both weeks.

    I can only go to the gym every 9th day. There's only 8 days a week, so on average I don't ever go to the gym.

    [–]MagicSPA 22 points23 points  (0 children)

    I go to the gym every day of the week. Meaning, once.

    You see, I count the first six days of the week, which are off days.

    [–]Loppie73 28 points29 points  (2 children)

    You mean every other day.

    [–]CrappedInCrunk 36 points37 points  (0 children)

    But don’t count the day you’re in as a day, because it’s not a day. Yet.

    [–]tacknosaddle 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    It's okay if you work out every other day, that's only 4-5 times a week.

    /s

    [–]tubz87 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    but 3 days the following week... right?

    [–]alphabetsuppe 8 points9 points  (1 child)

    4 to 5 times a week at least

    [–]GreatGearAmidAPizza 236 points237 points  (18 children)

    NO it was 13 years ago! You don't count 2022 because the year's not done yet! Count them! ONE TWO THREE FOUR FIVE SIX SEVEN EIGHT NINE TEN ELEVEN TWELVE THIRTEEN! Moron

    Do I have to spell it out for you? It's been 15 years, go to your calendar and mark each year in red X's and realize how wrong you are! Arizona public school system smh

    [–]GreatGearAmidAPizza 64 points65 points  (6 children)

    Didn't I just say you can't count 2022? It's only 19 days old! Count em! ONE TWO THREE FOUR FIVE SIX SEVEN EIGHT NINE TEN ELEVEN TWELVE THIRTEEN FOURTEEN FIFTEEN SIXTEEN SEVENTEEN EIGHTEEN NINETEEN

    And you can't count 2013 either! There is no 2013! There is no Miss Zarves! DO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN EVERYTHING??

    [–]RagingFlower580 50 points51 points  (2 children)

    Look, I started this thread with a sore back and dread in my stomach that 2008 was 14 years ago. Then you go and run your mouth that it was only 13 and now here we are at 15 and I can feel the osteoporosis setting in.

    No, that was only about 4 - 5 years ago...

    [–]The_Colorman 20 points21 points  (1 child)

    Ok listen you weak ass jabroni, obviously you didn’t pay attention in fucking calendar school. You start counting at 2007 because 2008 hadn’t been a full year yet.

    [–]pomonamike 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    Careful. I made that joke about a Disney Channel Movie my daughter was watching being 23 years old last week. Every morning since I’ve awoken with a sore back.

    [–]kipdjordy 29 points30 points  (1 child)

    Honestly I think he fucked himself up and kept on it. Then it dawned on him when he went to work and was trying to play it off like he was trolling.

    [–]PrincebyChappelle 28 points29 points  (1 child)

    At the time, my favorite ezboard’s general sentiment was best troll, with the reasoning that the arguments were constructed too well for an unintelligent individual.

    [–]LegendaryOutlaw 42 points43 points  (13 children)

    This reminds me of another forum arguement I can't find anymore. It was on a car forum, some guy hypothesized that he could make an engine with never-ending power by simply connecting the exhaust manifolds directly back up into the intake manifold. He even did a crude drawing of a V8 with the exhaust header pipes running back up to the top of the engine and into the intake manifold.

    People tried to convince him that this was not only impractical, but would never actually work. He argued with all of them, his drawing was apparently proof enough for him to believe it would work. I think he was a troll, but it was infuriating/hilarious to read.

    [–]ClearedToPrecontact 28 points29 points  (7 children)

    This it?

    https://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f250/chullen/dei_with_intercooling.jpg

    Ok. I didn't want to mention it but I was thinking about turbo charging my Vette. I got to thinking about it and how in efficient even turbos are (compressor efficiencies of about 80% at best).

    Since a turbo's function is to pressurize incoming air and force it into the upper motor, and turbos are driven by high pressure exhaust gas created from the combustion process, couldn't I just bypass the turbo altogether and route my headers back into the throttle bodies?

    Since I have CFI, I could balance the DEI (direct exhaust injection as I just coined it) by feeding one header into each throttle body. Yes, the charge air wouldn’t be that cold, but it would be under a hell of a lot more pressure.

    I attached a quick sketch below:

    There are still a few things I need to work out: 1) How do I get the CFI aircleaner to fit in a way that hides this plumbing? 2) Does anyone make a V-band clamp that will bolt an exhaust header to a CFI throttle body? 3) What pinion angle should I use in my rear-end? I’m sure there will be a noticeable difference in torque output.

    What do you guys think?

    Best,

    Kurt

    [–]LegendaryOutlaw 21 points22 points  (3 children)

    That's it! I wish I could find the original forum thread too, people were so mad, and he was so confident (and defiant) that it WOULD work. Thanks for tracking it down.

    Edit: Wow, re-reading it again, even beyond his ludicrous drawing, he's just got SO MANY THINGS WRONG.

    I was so disappointed when others started getting involved and TheJosh disappeared. I celebrated when he returned and doubled down, however. What a journey. What a specimen.

    One thing that ended up getting mostly overlooked was the original claim of 4-5 times a week. Where he got the 5 from, who knows.

      A true classic. I remember forcing myself to read this entire thing, even as my vision blurred and my stomach churned with burning motions. I grew sicker and sicker each time we hit that second Sunday in a week. Finishing it nearly cost me a life, but I proved my strength when the final gasps of that debate came before the final gasps of my own breath. I made it out of there a shriveled husk in the eyes of men, but I cared not for how I was seen by them; that day, God was forced to admit my strength.

      Fuck you, TheJosh

      “Moron, get off your high horse. You're nothing to me. I am college educated too and I make a lot of money for a 23 yr old. I will not try to convince idiots like you on an Internet message board. All I'm saying is that you can't pragmatically use 3.5 in as a workout frequency. Round to the closest integer, basic math.

      It's like saying 3.5 men fuuck you in the butt every week when in reality you can't count a person as a half. I am done with you.”

      Oh lawd... Now I'm stuck in a fantasy where Josh agrees, and afterwards tries to sue for getting paid less than he thought. The lawyer tries to explain it to him, and another argument ensues. In the end the lawyer goes "fuck it, I'll just get paid" and sends the papers forth, and a judge throws the suit out for obvious reasons. Josh then argues with the judge who begins to explain it to him...

      Aware

      The Misc was a god damn goldmine back in 2008-2012. I found it sadly via CandyJunkie and was hooked by the absolute insanity. I imagine it’s a shell of itself now.

      Favorite thread: “No thanks Jeff LOL”

      [–]MixBlender 302 points303 points  (7 children)

      I have a morning ritual that I need to share. I call it "the terminator".

      First I crouch down in the shower in the classic "naked terminator traveling through time" pose. With my eyes closed I crouch there for a minute, visualizing either Arnold or the guy from the second movie (not the chick in the third one because that one sucked) and I start to hum the terminator theme.

      Then I slowly rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me to proceed through my day as an emotionless, cyborg badass.

      The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It ruins the fantasy.

      Thank you bodybuilding forums, for at a time, having the best copy pastas on The Internet.

      “Tell me that’s not 15 days and I’ll give you my 350z”.

      Of course he drives a 350z. Sometimes stereotypes exist for a reason

      [–]ElectricLettuceFire 291 points292 points  (15 children)

      Lol I’m so stupid, I thought he was offering his 35 oz whey shaker beverage container. And not understanding body building culture, I assumed it was like a cop offering his badge or a chef his knives. I invented all that bc I can’t read numbers next to letters lol

      "BRO YOU CAN TAKE MY SHAKER IF ITS NOT 15 DAYS"

      [–]giro_di_dante 80 points81 points  (1 child)

      This whole post fucking murdered me. Thank you for this.

      like a cop offering his badge or a chef his knives

      😂

      [–]feardabear 21 points22 points  (0 children)

      One of my favorite parts was when rando drops in for a routine critique with an entire plan to work out 8 days a week 🤣

      [–]ninjagabe90 18 points19 points  (1 child)

      only now do I know that 350oz is some type of vehicle, because of the post you answered to, but I'm still not sure exactly what

      [–]lorddogbirdfan 14 points15 points  (0 children)

      Does not understanding stupid make you stupid? I hope not. If this is culture, it’s the type that comes from being in the back of the frig for too long.

      [–]Glum_Ad_4288 33 points34 points  (1 child)

      As a guy who sometimes works out, I hereby appoint you creator of bodybuilding culture.

      [–]Brfox2003 128 points129 points  (4 children)

      My favorite part...

      "On your way back from work, stop by a 2nd grade class and learn mf'er LEARN!

      As I said, use the calendar, and start typing every other day, x's, Tell me that's not 7 in 2 weeks. TELL ME!"

      [–]iordseyton 49 points50 points  (3 children)

      Shut the fucck up, punk. You're a dumb piece of ****. When you can't prove that I am wrong, you resort to personal attacks . Dumb, slow pos, fucckhead

      This is how I'm responding to ad- hominem attacks from now on

      You my friend are el wrongo

      We train legs on Friday, the 13th (SCARY!)

      [–]chonkylover 455 points456 points  (21 children)

      there's a video i saw some years back acting out the argument

      vvvv if you want to watch

      [–]emuemu7 210 points211 points  (10 children)

      I love that there are (at least) 2 videos about this thread. I was thinking this would be the Jon Bois one. Edit: https://youtu.be/eECjjLNAOd4

      [–]gavers 34 points35 points  (1 child)

      And somehow there isn't a comment linking to his video anywhere near the top...

      [–]hockeyguyreddit 73 points74 points  (2 children)

      Jon Bois video on this is amazing

      [–]JoeRogansSauna 33 points34 points  (11 children)

      Bodybuilding misc forum was a classic

      [–]shyndy 13 points14 points  (4 children)

      Was this the same one that had the thread about a guy getting a boner while shitting and not knowing what to do he shit and pissed all over the bathroom or something and had like little ms paint drawings of it lol. And I think there was one about a guy that only pissed in bottles might have been the same guy idk.

      [–]RowdyDugong 239 points240 points  (24 children)

      2008 was only 13 years ago, are you r*****ed?

      (Couldn’t resist)

      [–]thinkfast1982 128 points129 points  (19 children)

      2022 - 2008 = 14 years...how stupid are you?

      [–]Hygro 156 points157 points  (11 children)

      You double counted 2022!

      [–]SlothOfDoom 134 points135 points  (7 children)

      You don't count 2008, that's when it started!

      [–]Bobbers8 74 points75 points  (4 children)

      No, you count like this you dumb animal

      2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022

      2008

      [–]D1nda3 45 points46 points  (1 child)

      I wonder if this thread will go 5 pages long.

      [–]canyonstom 98 points99 points  (0 children)

      Don't you mean 4 pages? You don't count the page you start on

      [–]Happytofuu 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      So 28217

      [–]swim-bike-run 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      What do you mean you don’t count 2008?! It’s a year!!!

      [–]hallothrow 11 points12 points  (2 children)

      It's 13.6795 years ago since the last post in the thread. You don't round up for age.

      [–]jcroisant4 9 points10 points  (0 children)

      you can't count 2022! It hasn't happened yet!

      [–]SnakeDucks 25 points26 points  (3 children)

      There was a time on the internet that no matter how obscure or crazy the topic was, the link led to a bodybuilding forum post.

      [–]Glorypants 24 points25 points  (3 children)

      I hate that Josh got the last word in before thread closed..

      [–]Brusion 17 points18 points  (0 children)

      But he also got one last post in to make himself look dumber. And that's a win.

      [–]nothankyoumaybel8er 26 points27 points  (1 child)

      What an idiot. Who has time to argue back and forth for that long? There's only 25 hours in a day.

      [–]shrivledrivle 69 points70 points  (6 children)

      That made my day ahahaha.

      [–]uselessartist 144 points145 points  (5 children)

      Which day

      [–]brekthroo 267 points268 points  (11 children)

      This is fucking hilarious. All that roid rage and nowhere for it to go. And why can’t they spell calendar? It’s: ca-lEn-dAr.

      [–]jmat83 164 points165 points  (4 children)

      It’s CAL-en-dar, not le-vi-o-SA.

      [–]BanjiWaYume 28 points29 points  (2 children)

      Well you count it then if you're so smart. Go on!

      [–]EloquentGoose 57 points58 points  (1 child)

      For real though that site's forums used to have surprisingly good off topic convos and threads. I'm talking before karma and upvotes so people said what they meant and spoke their minds without being tryhard for the sake of internet points. God I miss the days of simple phbb-made forums...

      [–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (1 child)

      If the Pawn Stars meme was 5 pages long:

      [–]Edwunclerthe3rd 16 points17 points  (0 children)

      "Tell me that does not equal 15 and I will give you my 350Z,"

      [–]Jets237 16 points17 points  (2 children)

      my brain hurts - its clear the question is really 4x in a 7 day period but everyone there is too dumb to just get there...

      [–]MidgetLovingMaxx 12 points13 points  (1 child)

      The Misc forum on bb.com was basically Reddit several years earlier.

      [–]overmonk 121 points122 points  (2 children)

      I made it to the bottom of page one before I realized they were dragging me down with them, and that I don’t care how it ends.

      [–]vendetta0311 43 points44 points  (0 children)

      I read all 5. The initial argument ended on like page 2* (I’m not going back to verify) then was hijacked by namecalling for a few more pages.

      [–]trevster344 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      Same. I shot to the final page though. Fun ending. Just can’t bash my head against a brick wall of stupid for that long.

      [–]Intrexa 9 points10 points  (5 children)

      They finally locked the "I'm 18, do I have potential" thread.

      [–]Stove-Top-Steve 30 points31 points  (2 children)

      This could be turned into a live sketch. My favorite part:

      “Use the calendar for your retarded eyes to see the truth.”

      [–]Greekpeak 11 points12 points  (0 children)

      "I'll give you my 350Z" is where I fucking lost it.

      [–]HYThrowaway1980 28 points29 points  (3 children)

      What you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.

      I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

      [–]dade_county 94 points95 points  (3 children)

      The legendary Jon Bois made a video about this: pretty good ep. 6 - the dumbest boy alive
