World's Most Efficient Diet Program.

You give me $10,000 and within 6 months if you can lose the desired amount of weight then I give you back your money. If you don't then I keep it.

Alternatively, you can eat the food that I made. If you don't die in a few days and start losing weight, then... well... I guess you're a super(wo)man.

Wow, check out the hostility here! I remember that this forum is meant to connect all types of riders in SoCal, not just the people that are 'cool' enough to be at the rides...

Phil, this guy has come on here and been rude and argumentative - especially to the women (i.e. Joy and me in a separate thread) Why the defense? And if you want, go ahead and embrace him and invite him out on a ride.

Gotta take up for Yamcha here. The post was a joke. There are lots of variations on this one. There's the "blackmail diet" for instance. You put a large sum of money in a trust with a lawyer. If you don't lose a specified amount of weight in a given time, the money is donated to the American Nazi party.

Yur all just prickly because of the previous post on how exercise is making us all old and saggy, which BTW seems to be absolutely true. We are all really saggy and pale and we all need a nap.

No, "we" are all prickly because of the "tone" this guy has used. Come on...it's obvious he is here to start crap and not really interested in joining on rides (cool people aside - which I wasn't aware any of us were all that cool We're just folks who like to ride...I thought). Whatever...I'm out of both threads. Usually, when I say I put people on ignore, I don't. But this one, I'm going to. The rest of you who find this amusing and cute and all of that, can play, play, play....

I can (and do) read most everything... and there is a certain amount of 'dislike' on both sides.

Just because a thread is posted does not mean that you (or anyone else) is required to respond. Simply ignore it and allow people that want to discuss the thread topic to debate without the additional baggage of impolite posts.

Since when do you dictate the rules of the forum, Phil? This is the third time you've stepped in to "reprimand" (need I remind you of telling three members on here to STFU?) - what is that all about? Last I checked, I don't have to do what you think is appropriate based on your comfort level. YOU can stay out it and out of the thread too. Oh, look at that? YOU can follow your own advice and recommendation. Teach by example, Phil.

Dude, that blows, all I have is $8,950.75, and I really wanted to lose the weight!

Oh well, guess I'll go and ride my bike non-recreationally for exercise purposes only.
