    I must confess that I've never trusted the Web. I've always seen it as a coward's tool. Where does it live? How do you hold it personally responsible? Can you put a distributed network of fiber-optic cable "on notice"? And is it male or female? In other words, can I challenge it to a fight?......Stephen Colbert

    I should? Will it make me Taller?
    No, I have no problems whatso ever, thanks.

    * SHAWN, WHATS JOHN BROWN BEEN UP TOO???...
    Funny you should ask, he is doing good lives about 20 minutes from me. He has 3 Boys, married to a German Female, Miriam for 10 yrs.
    He still designs women's fashion, nothing to do with BBing, avid Golfer and good too!
    I remember Richie Browse, that was Malibu Express, B movie but a Movie nonetheless!
    As for the All Caps............Let's just say, I skim the column but can't read the damn thing because it reads like you're SHOUTING!
    Peace bro.

    * what was the reason why you couldnt hold up a relationship as a pro bodybuilder
    I'm assuming you mean maintain a steady "Girlfriend"
    The reason was, I was in love withmy job as a Pro Bodybuilder which took precidence over any girl I was dating or in love with. I didn't want to have to choose between one or the other. I knew there would be time for Love and Commitment when my Job as a competitor was over. Relationships require Time, Energy, Commitment, Consideration, Effort, Money, Etc. All of which I could only apply at the time to my efforts in being the Best BBer I could be. Emotionally, I didn't want to have to choose, I knew what I wanted to do and how I needed to do it and for me it worked. It might not have been the same approach as Labrada or Haney but then again, we are all different in the way we approached the weights, competition and relationships, and all equally successful in our own right.
    * if you had the chance to go back in time. what would you have done differently?
    I am happy with the choices I made and my plate runs over with satisfaction in how I handled my business.
    * what advise would you give to upcoming pro's regarding making relationship last as a ifbb pro.
    Do what I did, remain Solo for your career and be in love with it. It will be smooth sailing but there will also be some lonely times. Any other way, I'm not qualified to offer a valid opinion since for me, my way worked for me. I may have been alone at times in training but I was never alone in my pursuit of physical perfection, as I never lost sight of my ultimate goal of becoming and remaining one of the best in the world!
    * held the charles glass with training what was your off season weight
    Huh? I'm guessing English is your second language but I think you're asking my Offseason Weight: 235lbs

    Peace,

    Shawn:

    Over the years did you notice a change in the off seasons weight of the bb'ers you saw from the 80s to 2000s (today) when you competed. You saw people like Haney to Coleman so thats why I was wondering if you could shed some light on the topic we are having on the No Bull board.

    I'm curious as to what you think about Victor Martinez announcing that he'll do the Arnold Classic in 2008. On the one hand, it seems like it would make sense to go into the Arnold Classic and win the purse and prestige that comes with the title. On the other hand, after coming in 2nd place in the Olympia, what do you think is the reasoning behind doing the Arnold again this year and having to peak 2x in one year. Is it really tough to do that?

    I'm sure he can do it but what do you think about his choice at this point
