> Wow someone went off their meds this morning
> Hey 'Ruka
> More information on Chris Benoit
> ♦ An investigator with the DEA reported in a sworn statement accompanying the indictment against Astin that a Fayetteville pharmacist said the Carrollton, Ga,. doctor provided Benoit with a 10-month supply of anabolic steroids every three to four weeks in the year that led up to the pro wrestling star killing his wife, son and himself late last month.
> A 10 month supply... every 3 to 4 WEEKS?
> So Benoit was taking ten TIMES as much as he should have been.
> What the F[BLEEP]
> Haruka-poppa, thisis a shame.
> Even I, who don't really care for wrestling, could tell that Benoit was a talented and skilled wrestler in reality.
> What kind of pressure makes a man who trained legitimately, honing his skills and abiltities for so long, resort to taking that many artificial enhancement drugs to supplement god-given talent?
> I know why
> the pressure to keep up with the other juiced freaks twice his size and half his age.
> ♦ In an interview last week, Manhasset steroid expert Dr. Gary Wadler criticized WWE's drug testing policy as "woefully lacking." Among the problems cited by Wadler, who sits on the committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency: WWE allows for a higher threshold of testosterone in a person's system than in other sports before considering a steroid test "positive," and WWE gives wrestlers up to an hour's notice between notification of a test and its administering. Wadler also noted that WWE prohibits only "non-medical use" of banned drugs and allows wrestlers to provide a doctor's explanation for use, even after testing positive.
> That Hour's notice would seem to defeat the whole purpose.
[09:03] * FireFly_9 thinks of Danny the Dope Dealer's invention in "Withnail and I"
> A concealed bag you could preload with urine before you got high, so that wben you were tested for drugs you just dispensed the urine into the testing cup from the bag.
> ♦ "There are additional reports that contradict the earlier information that suggested that Daniel Benoit may have suffered from Dwarf Syndrome or Fragile X Syndrome. Daniel's family denies that he suffered from either condition. As a result of the family's concerns, the Fayette County Sheriff's investigators and the District Attorney's Office have inquired into this matter.
> ♦ Continuing: "A source having access to certain of Daniel's medical reports reviewed those reports, and they do not mention any pre-existing mental or physical impairment. Reports from Daniel's educators likewise contradict the claims that Daniel was physically undersized. The educators report that Daniel graduated kindergarten and was prepared to enter the first grade on par with the other students."
> Man it's AOL news.
> AOL *TIME WARNER* Remember.
> Man this... I dunno what to make of this s[BLEEP]
> ♦ As the World Wrestling Entertainment is doing everything to try and make people forget about the man they employed - its Web site has no mention of the name "Chris Benoit" - toys and collectibles bearing his likeness have been snapped up by collectors trying to cash in on his infamous reputation.
> You know, one thing.
> I f[BLEEP]
king HATE WWE's Orwellian censorship policy.
> Someone wroked for you, they WORKED for you.
> Keep them in the f[BLEEP]
king title history.
> That gives your title credibility. Yeah, so they did s[BLEEP]
t in their personal life that was disgraceful.
> that doesn't change the fact they were part of your history.
> Don't revere them but don't change HISTORY.
> Hah, in this day and age the "retcon" is becoming more and more popular.
> Not just in WWE, either.
> ♦ "The company takes what happens very seriously and we don't want to contribute anymore to the situation, so we are no longer going to be distributing or making any more Chris Benoit action figures," said Jenna Rosenberg, spokeswoman of Jakks Pacific Inc. "We have the power to not make them, and no longer send them out, and that's what we are planning to do."
> Toys R; Us has pulled their stock.
> ♦ A search on eBay for Benoit items on Monday returned more than 1,100 hits. And the prices people are paying have skyrocketed since the murder/suicide. For instance, the first bid made on an autographed Benoit trading card started last week at $24.99 and closed three days later at $132.50.
> That's f[BLEEP]
> On a completely different note, Reviews for the Transformers movie are actually fairly posiitve
> Man they're going to rape my childhood I know this
> Just treat it like a different continuity. I mean the Optimus from Beast Wars is not the Optimus from G1 or the Optimus from Armada, etc.
> Wait, YOU know about Transformers, Crow?
> Aya would play with them all the time and I'd have to sit there and listen to her make that damn CH-CHH-CH-CHH-CHH transformer noise all the time
> So by osmosis I learned all about the universe
> She even wore out a VHS copy of the movie. Wore it OUT.
> I've never SEEN anyone wear out a tape before
> then you've never seen Haruka's "special" movie collection tapes.
> STOP MAKING THAT SOUND WORSE THAN IT IS
> Same thing, in some circles.
