Any of you guys gonna watch this 48hrs on steroids tomorrow night?
ladies and germs,
The media is going to do a story on steroids friday --- I just watched a preview of it and I got so ****ing pissed off. I was watching the mystery 48hrs last night and they showed a preview for friday's 48hrs show.
One of the coaches said "it's just like he got so angry that he started choking me." Granted, i don't think anyone would argue with the fact that high school kids should not be taking pharm enhancement drugs. However, the whole roid rage thing really gets ****ing old.
it's the irresponsible 20% that ruin it for the responsible 80%.

Retards. They always do stories about the retards. Just once I'd like to see a story about how much effort goes into using them responsibly.
Ever notice they always show someone who doesn't even cycle them? They are on them 365 days a year, with no ancillaries either. Also notice they always tell you about teenagers. They never talk about adults. Teenagers have raging hormones and emotional problems to begin with, of course if you mess up that delicate balance they are going to be unstable. Retards.
Btw, since when is dianabol a horse steroid? I always thought it was developed by Ciba for use in humans right from the beginning.

Didn't even know it was on tonight, I may check it out. May be wrong but 24yrs of age isn't exactly the demographic age the 48hrs show shoots for huh Lakevillethor.

they showed a vial of steroids too in the sneek preview. The vial was of some steroid I have never heard of. i think it started with the letters "DEG"
Any thoughts? Maybe they just posted up a pic of a vial, knowing full well that no one would actually know the difference.

Well, almost no one.
You got to consider that this special isn't to highlight the positive effects of AAS, it never is. News is news, and the best kind of news is when its protraying "evil" things.

Ironically, you hardly ever see news shows that talk about the the top killers of Americans-cigs, alcohol, and fast foods. that's the real sad part and injustice when it comes to journalism.
So, don't even watch these shows. they are for the ignorant avg joe's with very little education.
08-05-2004, 03:44 PM
Well, I agree. The thing is that they are trying to say that kids should not be taking drugs or taking phs. I agree with this if this is the message they are trying to deliver.Originally Posted by lancelot

But is it? To comment on what Lancelot said early, the people working on the story probably have zero knowledge on said topic, their just familiar with the dark side of it. Same can be said for the people who watch and believe it.Originally Posted by Lakevillethor

Qualification. You'll never see a show on the real killer of Americans and people all around the world: their own stupidity.Originally Posted by lancelot

well, i too agree kids should not be doing any drugs and aas/ph's. But the shows always use some tragic story with kids to scare the general public and imply it's illegality to adults as well. they never show it's responsible and safe use by adults.Originally Posted by Lakevillethor

i've come to realize and to accept that most of America is stupid, ignorant, and close-minded. i just don't want that to trample on my rights and liberties because idiots can't protect themselves from their own stupidity.Originally Posted by CDB

Friday Night 10:00 eastern CBS. I watched damn near the same show about a month ago on the Discovery channel I believe. About a high school kid who took steroids and committed suicide. The show I watched had very little about the actual science of steroids and much more of a biography of this kid. My mom also gave me an article from a STAR magazine (I believe), about the same kid. Basically the media is using this kid's post steroid depression and suicide as a main argument of why AAS/ PH are a danger to society. The story is definately a sad story that messed up a family, but when I watched the show, I was a little disappointed the show wasn't more scientific and didn't have more interviews with people in the know. This show tommorow night will probably be the same concept if not the same show. I'm gonna miss it, so someone update after the show airs please.

Just a couple comments on journalists:
1. They're not supposed to be experts on the stories--their job is to interview experts, people at the forefront of a controversy, etc., in an unbiased manner if possible. So how many steroid gurus go in for interviews on national television, when their very line of work is illegal? Same thing goes for recreational drugs...it's hard to find people that will extoll the benefits of illegal activity publicly.
2. They know alot more about drugs (recreational) than you think. Dan Rather has done a ton of LSD, among other things (he says so in his book and I have a friend who ran camera for his show with a ton of crazy stories). From my own experience at two top colleges and as a writer, I can promise you that journalists and writers tend to be personally very liberal, and most feel drugs should be legal (talking about non-addictive recreational drugs). The irony here is that this is actually conservative position, i.e. keeping government out of your business.
Now that we have the internet, the importance of network news is waning for the information junkie.
Here's some trivia-->guess what the fastest growing group of Viagra users is?
18-44...use by this age group has exploded.
And guess how many members of the regulatory bodies have close financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry?
It was just reported by the Associated Press that although nearly 60% of the drug regulatory positions are held by people that are closely affiliated with drug companies, they felt there was no conflict of interest!!
Who says the goverment is against drugs?

even though these shows are retarded and piss you off, its always good to know what kind of B.S they are selling. it makes a better defense.Originally Posted by lancelot

most journalist are liberal. the new york times and los angelos times are liberal and influence most of americas news, which can lead to being biased.

You guys have it all wrong! Steroids are rampant and out of control, with dealers lurking around every corner and in schoolyards, killing and enslaving the youth of America, turning innocent children into fiendish criminal zombies!!! Oh wait, that's Pot...

That was the worst ****ing special I have ever seen. It was just how I thought it would be but only 10X worse. The two guys that were using looked like fat teenagers that never even worked out in their life, need to say use AAS. Oh yeah and since I have used before I think I am gonna go kill myself cause I just can't go on without them........... How ****ing sad is that???????????

ok one of the kids is in therapy because of steroid use. steroids will throw your hormones out of balance for a little while but to be in therapy after he stopped tells you there are more problems with the kid. you should return to normal after a couple of months off. I gotta agree juiceman. after seeing those kids on steriods makes me think they dont work.

Actually sucrose is the #1 killer in America. Refined sugar related illness (diabetis, heart disease, etc...) contributes to death in America more than cigs, alcohol and drugs combined! And we feed it to little children of all people, ususally as a reward!? Like Brodus said in a recent thread, the whole system is trashed to the core, and the media needs a good contaversial steroid story every now and again. That's all it is. I wish more people would actually kill themselves and stop just talking about killing themselves (a little reverse psychology for all you whiners out there)

Yea I just saw it. They profiled 3 teenaged boys who took steroids. 2 of the 3 committed suicide (and of course the steroids were to blame). The 3rd teenager was on steroids for over a yr, and once he got off em, was having withdrawal symptoms (roid-rage and suicidal depression). I agree....none of the 3 boys looked like they did any kind of weight training. The show was a complete "hatchet-job". Most of the GDP (generally dumb public) that watched this crap will now think of steroids as being far more dangerous than cocaine or heroine. Yea get on roids and become a raving lunatic who commits suicide. It was a complete one-sided story, anti steroid all the way and not a peep from the pro side. Of course 48 hrs offers the solution to this problem, more legislation, cracking down on internet sales, and MANDATORY drug testing of high school athletes. The show ended with some of the parents giving testimony before Congress (and Joe Biden).Originally Posted by Juiceman

In my opinion, they should present both sides of the case, but being in the public eye like those producers are, they almost have the responsibility to scare these idiot kids taking anabolic steroids about the bad things that can happen when you take them at a young age. Now, do I think these stories on TV will actually cause some dumb ass kid that's contemplating a cycle to reconsider and not take it? No.
Actually, I think I agree with Dr. D - just let these idiots kill themselves. Darwin didn't propose his "survival of the fittest" theory for nothin'......
