  1. What is this JUMP you always mention? It's a strange way to say scroll down a bit.

  2. Two bits: First, the notice is on the main page but the video requires you to view the whole article. Thus, you have to "jump" to view the video.

    Second, there's an ad between the end of the article and the video. In the copy editing world, this is known as a "jump" because the story jumps from one place to another.

  3. Sheesh, I must have enough myostatin to sell off to some third world countries that need it. I should at least be able to make some money!

  4. Obviously people w/ low levels of myostatin naturally have an unfair advantage because life is unfair! Equal efforts do not always produce equal outcomes.

  5. Unfortunately Zlick, your income is diminished by my abundance of myostatin. Perhaps you've probably seen me on the beach getting sand kicked in my face? Lucky for me that never stopped me from standing up to bullies anyway.

  6. Of all the websites I visit, Towleroad seems to strain my work computer, home computer, or smart phone in terms of always seeming slowest to load of being busy loading something or having something not show up. Like this video. I went to the jump and just have a black box where the video should be ... on my work PC, and my home Mac. Sad times.

  9. The 'secret' of those very well muscled gym rats and some pro, collegiate and even HS athletes, is called anabolic steroids.

    Yes, I also like the science vids.

  13. Um, Moz's, you do know you are slowly killing yourself with that poison, don't you? Aren't HGH better than 'roids and more effective, too? Next time, at least give us a chance to worship that muscle by posting a pic! LOL Seriously, lay off the 'roids. They kill you.
