And don't get me started on dudes posting shirtless profile pics of themselves flexing on FB...I mean what the hell are you doing? Are you that blinded by your own vanity that you've lost any sense of class whatsoever? Feeling is, in Australia at least, the meathead culture is on the rise something bad, no doubt thanks to absolute wankers like that Zyzz guy. And for some reason unknown to me he has seemingly gained a cult following.
Been going on in one way or another since the 80s at least but the internet has given some of the whackos a wider forum
As an example, the aerobics phenom was pretty sickening as it also involved horrible fashion and ridiculous hairstyles plus training methods werent as sophisticated so the gym literally became a bad taste party where the guests had no ****ing idea what they were doing
Also, in the 90s, triathlons became all the rage and if you ever wanted a boring evening, all you needed to do was go to one of the dinners after a big event as 95% of the ****s were so obsessed that they couldnt unwind and kept babbling on about carbo loading, fartleks and other incomprehensible ****
However, one disturbing recent trend seems to be that steroid use is gaining popularity again - FMD, how dumb to you have to be?
