He is just using the blood tranfusions to hide his doping. It's called "Armstronging".

On the plus side, he's now more resistant to ninja assassins.

Learning to learn to walk sounds like your heart isn't really in it, so you'd rather just play a walking simulator video game. I think the most popular one is called Lord of the Rings.

You know who else lost 60% of his blood and survived.

sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net

Sergeant Major Kasal  

"In a fire fight in a house in Fallujah, although wounded by seven 7.62x39mm AK-47 rounds and hit by more than 43 pieces of hot fragmentation from a grenade while using his body to shield an injured fellow Marine, Kasal refused to quit fighting and is credited with saving the lives of several Marines during the U.S. assault on insurgent strongholds in Fallujah in November 2004."

I am not minimizing the Triathlete's story, I am just piggybacking another amazing story of survival.

Article is about Brian Boyle, who was featured in NBC's coverage of the Ironman World Championships a few years back. Old news.

What's the over-under on how many years before we start stripping medals for doping?

It's not so much that they instill or train that into a Marine. It is more that to become a Marine and ascend the ranks this type of hardened will must be part of you. It's why, in general, there is such a smaller percentage of Marines in comparison to the other armed services branches. The pool of people willing to take on this type of challenge simply is far smaller.
Same reason you do not screw with an Airborne Ranger. It will not end well or without grievous bodily harm.

Tension pneumothorax. Punctured lung loses air into the chest wall cavity until it presses all organs in its way to the other side of the body. Very life threatening.

Who takes an hour to donate blood? I'm usually in and out within 25 minutes, and that includes the time it takes to fill out the questionnaire, check hemoglobin, etc. And have a cookie afterward.

I'm sure he is a real sweetheart....til someone tries to f--k with him, his family or his friends.
Then things tend to get all "emergency room-y" for the perp.
