    Crossfitters do everything to the nth degree. We even sit down with intensity! I think that dent came from Kurts head (looks like his tiny frame). He must have seen one of my times…tried to beat it…and failed again.

    We have identified the culprit, Chris Jones, who claims that all he did was sit on it. It had previously been strategically bent and weakened by an unknown chair abuser. We’ve also been victimized by the “Clock Killer.” The clock in the main area was knocked off last week by a well aimed wall ball shot. The new clock, $3.97 at Wal-Mart, has been placed well over the 12 foot mark, in an effort to foil future assassination attempts.

    So the subject of “Paleo” protein shakes came up a few days ago, and I wanted to make the following observation.
    Protein shakes, by definition, are not paleo if they involve any sort of processed powder. But this is fine, because there are ways of making shakes that are better for you, with better ingredients, taste better, and are cheaper than using whey protein. My favourite recipe is as follows:
    4 large eggs
    2 tablespoons of KBA™ Almond Butter, or preferred equivalent
    1 apple or pear
    1 handful of ice
    Chop up fruit into small pieces. Include skin, core, and seeds. Crush ice in blender. Next, add eggs and minced fruit and blend well. Finally, add the nut butter. Continue blending until the entire mixture is thoroughly homogenised. Serve immediately.
    If you buy only organic fruit and local, farm fresh organic eggs, the above still is competitive with overpriced whey protein powders, which likely contain MSG and other foul adulterants. Paleo protein shakes are great, but they don’t involve powders.

    Let’s also add someone throwing their shit…literally, shit…in the trashcan. We all have accidents, but next time please take the trash out after you throw your poop in it, please.

    This is probably the funniest thing that has ever been posted on here.
    I am in a library right now trying to restrain my laughter at the thought of Bethanie’s rage.
    Also, that’s really gross.

    You can’t be serious. The last time I was in the gym, someone in the ladies bathroom failed to flush. I came out of the bathroom with a stricken expression on my face and told Dan. It was horrible. I say I haven’t been back because of my triathlon, but really, it’s because I am traumatized. Seriously, I think there may be a sociopath on the loose at CFATL, and I think I know who it may be….

    Well you know there are some WODs that make Pukie appear. You know, like Barbara. And there are other WODs that can make Dookie appear. Helen is always that one for me, especially if I do it the morning after having alcohol the previous night. Working the core with a lot of intensity can lead to a sudden, and I mean SUDDEN need to evacuate.
    Glassman needs to update the main HQ site with a Dookie mascot. We’ve all met him, no denying it.

    if it’s any consolation, it was in the trashcan in the women’s restroom (by the sink). Feces have been sent to the lab for a DNA run.
    (Rob, how come my auto correct doesn’t like the word “women’s”)

    Not sure how I feel about the word “culprit” appearing next to my name at the top of this thread now that the topic has turned in this direction.

    “women’s” is correct. Your phone (I’m assuming) probably just doesn’t have it in its dictionary.

    Thanks for the shout out Dave.
    The fact that the poop was deliberately placed in the women’s trash can is disturbing.

    “Women” followed by ‘s indicates a notion of possession, which we all know is just ridiculous. The iPhone is right to correct you.

    don’t give Chris too much Shit. I believe I was the original chair abuser. I was using it a Stool during a WOD (Dips and situps were the main Movements, it was a real Steamer). I felt like such a dingleberry. Those folding chair Gopher about 15 dollars, so once I Pinch-off this project in Texas I’ll Drop a new one on ya’ll and take that old piece of Crap to the Dump.
