Trying to get into the Olive garden.

Mental Illness is a thing.

But, you know, DIY plastic surgery is the best kind.

I probably would've gone with a synthetic blend.

Does he think he's too skinny in the fashion anorexics think they're too fat?

His condition actually causes bulimia, because when I see him I want to throw up.

Try doing some work. Mileage may vary, but when I was 21, three or four lackadaisical sessions would blow my arms up nicely. I miss those days.

How long before his arms have to be amputated?

That's really sad.

Body dysmorphia aside, I wonder if some of these people treat synthol like addicts treat doses from a needle.  You know it is changing you for the worse, but you don't care as long as it is giving you the reward you want.

Basically, immediate satisfaction versus the ability to consider long-term consequences, and the unwillingness to think about it.

Much like covering your arm in tattoos you thought were cool in your 20's or 30's.  It's good for a bit but it will eventually be something you want to regret, but try to put out of your mind.

I operated an overhead chain hoist in a mill third shift for 3 months and got those arms.
Looked pretty bad ass until i rolled the sleeves all the way up.
 
2017-11-13 11:03:05 PM  
That is truly pathetic.

He hasn't yet got the square shape that synthol typically leaves abusers with.

So he's got that going for him.
 
2017-11-13 11:27:14 PM  
I don't get the point of being big without being strong. It's just extra weight he's carrying around.

As Principals' pic shows, Popeye arms are actually huge in the forearm and puny in the bicep/tricep regions.  Seems like everyone gets that wrong.
 
2017-11-13 11:41:49 PM  
He also does curls in the squat rack.
 
2017-11-13 11:42:55 PM  
He's so delusional he doesn't understand there's a difference between looking like a real bodybuilder and looking like a guy who's stuff a bunch of potatoes under his skin.

Synthol is 85% oil, 7.5% lidocaine, and 7.5% alcohol.

wonder what it would do if inject in the penis?..... how you doin'?

There's a Vice video on Youtube about a guy who did that. He's very big in the gay community.

how would one actually just target the forearm muscle groups to Popeye out?

You know who had 24" arms and didn't use oil*!!!

Why, how much did he inject in there?

But then 9/11 happened. Truly he was histories greatest monster.

He should have just done one arm, like that guy from Lady in the Water.

Gotta love the bruising vs cellulitis vs abcess formation (left elbow?) he's got going on.

Years ago I worked in a glass And curtainwall shop where they made double pained windows for high rises. You had to grab large sheets of glass and hold/carry them horizontally which requires a firm grip.  I had the Popeye forearm thing going on while I worked there.

Search The Man Whose Arms Exploded and read up or watch the video.  More impressive than this bozo (if you're impressed by big arms).

Kouta: How long before his arms have to be amputated?


The picture (from behind) which shows both arms purple is somewhat frightening.

I use to be able to get washboard abs in a week, than my metabolism slowed and I fulfilled my Irish heritage.

God bless him for his role in taking down Gawker

As far as jokes go, that's a pretty dangerous one.  He can't possibly think that it looks impressive or good though - it just looks like a fat person's arm on a skinny person.  Doesn't even look like muscle.

Attention seeking is strange behavior.  Body dysmorphia is a real disorder, and it can be dangerous, but in this case I'd be more disappointed that he's so BAD at it.

If it's not mental illness to carve up your body because you think you were born the wrong gender, then this isn't mental illness either.

In a fashion.

In my 20s, I got stung by a yellowjacket in the arm.  Two weeks later, I got stung in the exact same spot on my arm.  I had the Popeye thing going where just a little nub of elbow bone stuck out of a completely ballooned forearm.

He'd better stick to the 5W-20 grade; it can get awfully cold in Russia.
