All the vegetarians I know could stand to lose a few pounds too.
Donuts, stress, hurry up and wait job.
I see a lot of younger copsnwhonare bodybuildes and muscle studs, but yes, too many, maybe even most are out of shape, dreadfully s.
R5 is correct
when ever I see a cop on the streets of Philly he's always ordering food at one of those carts.
Are donuts a symptom or a cause?
You got that right R3!!! Younwouldnthink vegetarians would be lean and mean fat burning machines. Most I known range from pudge to just plain fat!!!! Most seem to be sugar and carboholics.
The ones out of the Academy are really fit. My brother-in-law was chunky and out of shape when he joined 7 years ago. During those months in the Academy, he lost weight and got fit. But even after the Academy, he was able to stay active 'cause he had to patrol on foot. But once they gave him a cruiser, his job was pretty much sedentary and he became complacent, and now he's fat as fuck.
Same goes for his Academy buddy. They used to carpool and he was hot. Several years younger than my bro-in-law at 23 and also got very fit while in the Academy, but he's now ballooned. It's sad, really. But straight guys don't seem to care about their weight.
Do you think cops should be held to weight limits? I do. Those fat fuckers are so out of shape, they can't even do a foot chase.
Someone who should know once told me this:
In a conflict, what a cop usually wants is to wrestle a suspect to the ground. Real cops don't chase suspects on foot or exchange blows, they just want to get the bastard down and cuff him. In that kind of struggle, extra weight is more useful than swiftness or fitness.
On TV they always chase down the suspects. And not many of them are fat. Agenda?
I don't know about fat, I suppose some may be, but I do like the ones who have nice, round, plump asses in the uniform pants--very spankable and pinchable.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
