Looks like someone messed up their dosage and timings very badly, July 19th is too close to the event to get any benefit from hGH.

I find it hard to believe that someone who is so spiteful and vindictive as to harm her own children by depriving them of time with their father just to "get back" at him didn't show these tendencies before marriage. Today's to tip.... Don't marry someone with the mental maturity of a five year old.

Posted in: Online trolls targeting transgender Olympian: Kiwi official See in context

I am all for trans people and anyone else for that matter, doing whatever they like, dressing however they like and living howerer they like as long as it doen't harm anyone else. The problem with this case is that Hubbard's inclusion into the women's weightlifting at the Olympics IS harming others. Sorry ladies, but when it comes to physical strength, the elite men are just so much stronger. Hubbard is a biological man. Somewhere a female athlete is watching on TV not taking her rightful place in the event. Probably someone will miss getting a medal that would be theirs without this clown show. This situation really needs to be sorted because we will be heading for Olympic and other competitions with men's events and women who used to be men events. Is this what women's sport needs?

let's be realistic...

Russia has a whistle blower, they had a large centrally organized program but not necessarily more on the juice than the US or quite a few countries with laughable anti doping... Cough.jamaica.cough..

Most kindergarten buses have "staff" as well as the driver. So maybe not the drivers fault. How are the parents sending a 5 year old to school in such a sleep deprived state?

Doping is widespread in almost every event that requires strength or endurance. Don't kid yourself that any team, nation or sport is free from doping.

Tennis... It was and still is the sport for those not quite up to the rough and tumble of soccer, rugby or other "proper" sport. Lets be honest..If your son came home from Jr high and said " I want to join the tennis club." Who wouldn't be disappointed?

Posted in: People in situation similar to 'black rain' to get help: gov't See in context

So the people of Tokyo who received horrific burns from the fire bombing from "regular" bombs get nothing for their injuries but those who got lesser injuries from radioactive weapons get a payment. Though not wanting to undermine the suffering of the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the fire bomb victims has it as bad as you and get nothing. My mother in law is 84 and has horrific burns over her body. Had she been in Hiroshima and not Tokyo she would be getting a special pension. A burn is a burn, a victim is a victim... Stop playing for sympathy on the world stage!

My advise is you should go get your vaccine! It is only a sore arm, a little fever! PLEASE go get it!

Actually for most people it's no sore arm and no fever.

The vast majority of people have no side effects at all!

Easy for you to say, sitting on your sofa eating your cakes.

:) It is easy.... If I force myself to watch tennis, a very rare thing, Zzzzz... I notice that they play for two hours but spend most of that time sat on a chair drinking Robinsons orange barley water or waiting to receive a serve or second serve. At my school the boys playing tennis were considered " a bit soft". It seems things haven't changed much.

Posted in: Olympic champ Biles withdraws from all-around competition See in context

Bottom line is ... You enter the event taking the place other would die for. Its yours, you qualified in front of then. But you then have the responsibility to give it your all. Quitting is not an option, If you are injured, you get a pass, but "I just don't want to play" is an insult to those below you. You can be sure her so called team mates won't be happy with her. Her once legendary status will be tarnished at least.

The original Olympic competitors were naked to show that they were not female, as only men were allowed to take part. Of course, things have changed, women can now compete and men can compete as women.

You would know better than me--what percentage of England's national rugby team is foreign born?

Its not being foreign born that is the problem. Its having NO attachment to the country other than a contract to play rugby. And yes, England has several who in my opinion should NOT be playing for England. But not half the team like Japan.

The '84 LA Olympics were the last to turn a profit.

Well, that may not be completely accurate. If you only count the money "officially" spent on the Olympics LA 84 almost broke even. But if you count the huge amount of expenditure on infrastructure for the Olympics... LA, like every other games before or since has been a HUGE sink hole for public funds.

Blacks make up about 13% of the US population but 68% of murder victims, mostly shootings. And no its not the police doing the killing, its generally young black men shooting other young black men.

Identifying the problem is the first step to the solution.... two words....Drugs ....Gangs.
