impaler: I had about 8% body fat once. But my T4 was 2.45 ng/dL and my TSH was 0.01 mU/L.


One time I ran outta beer before halftime on Monday Night Football.

wildcardjack: Psychopathy (/saɪˈkɒpəθi/[1][2] from the Ancient Greek ψυχή "psyche", -soul, mind and πάθος, "pathos" -suffering, disease, condition[3][4]) is a personality disorder that has been variously described as characterized by shallow emotions (in particular reduced fear), stress tolerance, lacking empathy, coldheartedness, lacking guilt, egocentricity, superficial charm, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, nonplanfulness, impulsivity, and antisocial behaviors such as parasitic lifestyle and criminality.

I don't think he'd rack up more than 20 points on the Bob Hare checklist, but I doubt he'd score below 10. Most of us score zero.


A) no farking way this is a real word
B) I thought the deal with Paul Ryan was that, at the very least, he has a plan. I mean, it's a terrible farking plan, but he has a plan.
C) how can this be a real word?

Because republicans will believe every word he ever says as the gospel truth?

tenpoundsofcheese: so no proof that he doesn't have a 6-8 percent body fat? okay.


At least he is ducking sniper fire on the tarmac in Bosnia.


I rest my case.

Gotta respect him for putting a plan out there and allow the psych society to diagnose him like that.

Maybe that's why Paul Ryan and Aaron Schock are gym buddies, it's a cover for what's really going on between the two of them. The love that dare not speak its name.

Sabyen91: I had 12% body fat...in high school...after a summer/fall of football practice 2 a days. Our best player (who went on to play for a BCS school) had 9%. 6% is only for the very elite athletes. What a liar.


Elite athletes, and the naturally skinny, athletic or not. I know a non-athlete (6'1" 135 lbs) with 3% body fat.

Even the most elite athletes almost never get to 3%.

If a person has 3% body fat, there's probably something wrong with him, as in some sort of medical condition.

Maybe that why he knows what his body fat is. Most people don't, as the only practical way to get an accurate measurement is through hydrostatic weighing or dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry.

I've known exactly one person who had 6-7% body fat. Not only was he an elite athlete, he was also one of those athletic freaks of nature--like Armstrong and Phelps--who was just naturally incredibly lean and had a metabolism like a hummingbird.

They're out there, but you'll never find them in politics. Unless they're really old and not longer able to compete.

Neither is Ryan, which is why it's even more obvious he's lying in his socks.

shanrick: I went to the same high school Paul Ryan did. I didn't really know him but I know he had a nickname; Skippy. I hung out with a different group of people. One day I was walking home and I heard someone yell "Hey, asshole!" I turned around and he was about twenty feet behind me. When I turned, he turned his head real quick and tried to act like it wasn't him. I shrugged it off and kept walking. A few minutes here it is again, hey asshole. So I tuned around again and again he looked away and pretended it wasn't him. Now, I don't know what his problem was because I didn't know him. And besides that, I'm what you would call a little person; also I use crutches because I was born with only one leg. Again I started home and a few minutes later, sure enough, he yelled it again. This time I turned and started walking back toward him. He looked panicked and turned to run, but tripped over a crack in the sidewalk. I walked up to him and he was crying like a baby. It was disgusting. "What a baby," I said. Then I kicked him in the face with my good leg and turned around and went home.


I have you favorited for kicking Santorum?

The media is in the bag of the media, all they care about is ratings. If Fox News found out that a liberal media channel would get big ratings they would switch sides in a heartbeat.

It's really only those who do ultra-marathon endurance races who can attain a body fat below 8%. And then, it's not healthy for the person, it's just a consequence of running 40 miles a day three times a week (and then running 25 miles a day the other four days a week).

Other than that, this guy, Ryan, is a poser, joker and loser: pojolo.
 
2012-09-18 04:34:42 AM

So you are willing to go on record as saying you believe Ryan's lies? Okay.

2012-09-18 05:16:20 AM  
Ryan sounds like someone from my highschool who was a compulsive liar. He'd always claim ridiculous athletic ability (among other equally improbable feats) and would either feign injury or get enraged and accuse others of doubting his word when asked to prove his claims. He used to boast that he could run the 100m in under 11 seconds, for example. He was pretty much universally loathed. (even more than the kid who used to pick and eat his own scabs)
 
2012-09-18 05:37:42 AM  
Why does Paul Ryan keep lying about his physical prowess?

Because he's lied about everything else. Maybe we'll get lucky and Fox will hire him to do a reality show with Sarah Palin. Sure, you wouldn't want to watch it, but it will get him out of politics and increase the IQ of Congress by about 12.5 points.

odinsposse: But the thing is he clearly is an active guy who could talk about doing physical things that he really does. He chooses to embellish and lie even though he could get the same effect by telling the truth. He clearly has some real mental issues which of course makes him perfect for the Romney campaign.


Have you ever heard somebody talk about P90X? That conversation isn't fun.
 
2012-09-18 08:06:07 AM  
I could talk about my penis that measures just shy of nine inches or the time I made love to three women simultaneously, but I don't need to.

Why? Because it's true and when stuff like that is true, you don't talk about it because it makes you look like a liar and a braggart.

So ladies, when you have a choice between the buff, confident guy in the new BMW who brags about all his conquests and the short, scrawny guy in the rusty 17 year old Honda who hears it and wryly smiles, you know who to pick.
 
2012-09-18 08:29:11 AM  
He is just insecure because he knows he has never had a job while he spends his time telling people how to live their lives. He has to be at the gym in 26 minutes.
 
2012-09-18 08:55:38 AM  
He's just trying to paint himself as a modern day Teddy Roosevelt.
