The way I look at it if my life isn't good 99 times out of 100 it's my fault, with dumb bad luck and occasional maliscious attack from some other person making up the last 1 out of 100. This entire nation is married to the media, and the media has got everyone's balls in its purse. Nothing it stopping you from pulling yours out and using them though, as you could in any relationship. It's your choice though.
Edit: Jesus Christ this is an old thread. I had no idea.

Roids are looked down on worse then alcohol in terms of teen use because of this....
5,000 plus kids die each year from alcohol related deaths (poisonings, car accidents, etc.)
How many die of roids each year? Not too many
the only reason people think steroids are a problem is because the news is more widespread. I live on the east coast and some kid died "of roids" in Cali. and we heard about it. I dont even hear about kids dieng of alcohol in my same state...

I BELIVE THEY THINK THAT IF WE USE ANY SUPPLEMENT LIKE NO2 OR CREATINE THEN THAT WE WILL EVENTUALLY USE STEROIDS AND THAT THEY RATHER TAKE ALL THAT AWAY SO NO ONE CAN DO ANYTHING
THATS A BUNCH OF CRAP ITS UR DECISION AND UR DECISION ONLY IF U WANT TO TAKE SUPPS AND/OR STEROID
IF A 15 YR OLD GIRL SOCCER PLAYER TAKES JUICE? NOT MY PROBLEM!

Such ignorance reminds me of the water boy where the mother is like "Girls are the devil, Foosball is the devil..." Protein is steroids creatine is steroids. You get the point, how can people intrusted with educating the future of the nation be soo STUPID that they dont even know the difference. How about accusing your teacher of snorting cocaine when their fat asses eat powdered donuts.

All the respective releasing factors of the above-mentioned
substances also are banned:

[FONT=Times][SIZE=3][FONT=Times]for testosterone—if the administration of testosterone or use
of any other manipulation has the result of increasing the ratio
of the total concentration of testosterone to that of
epitestosterone in the urine to greater than 6:1, unless there is
evidence that this ratio is due to a physiological or

Bah, this is nothing.
I was working out at the base gym while I was in the air force and overheard a conversation about how this sailors captain "banned" creatine outright from his command because "it caused shoulder problems".
I could not contain myself and started laughing and the guy asked me why I was laughing and I basically told him "if you have a shoulder problem, it isn't from the creatine, it's from people lifting wrong"
He didn't say much, but I could tell by the way that he furiously worked the pec deck that my assessment was correct.
Guy looked like an epileptic chicken.

Creatine is no more a steroid than a coca cola is an opiate. Again......................... .... reality...........and non-reality. Some things really are that simple.

Given the choice, I would prefer the steroids and the opiates. I think chocolate has its time and place ,but creatine messes up my electrolites. I will not allow the government to compromise my cell permeability.Originally Posted by UnicronSpawn

To slightly expand on Darius's point (good post, by the way), the media is sensationalist. Thats what happens when the media is ran by private companies. To get the dollars, you need to have the best news. Negative, shocking news always works best. So people are more likely to pick up the newspaper that tells us about the dangers of amino acids than tell us that life kicks ass and should be enjoyed. They want people scared...and reading their newspaper. Its just that simple.

YAY!!! the first time i actually agree with The Experiment!!!! I always knew i would one day find something in common with him... now.. let me try to let him understand the main stream lib. bias in news papers ;-)

Scared people are easier to fool. The standard strategy is to shock the reader with some horrible news, then reassure them with some bogus facts. This affirms the news source as the voice of reason and purveyor of truth. Then it is easier to convince the reader that anything you promote will be worth your while. It is a good thing that supplement companies do not use these techniques to sell their products!!! ( hahahahaha )Originally Posted by MaynardMeek

If you noticed MaynardMeek, I threw in a liberal remark in that post It doesn't matter to me if the news is liberal or conservative. I just want to know the truth.
Anyway, this is how they operate. You can tell because whenever they make an article about weblog news, they attack like starving pitbulls on a squirrel. Lets not forget that weblog news cracked the CBS "Memogate." Naturally, what happened is that the media began to attack weblog news.
Not to deviate much from the topic but I think blogging is the future of news. Never underestimate nerds who have nothing better to do than comb through articles to find incorrect information. Its what the media should be doing but sadly, they are not.

Hmm. Boy you know something's jacked up if it spurs me out of lurk mode.
I know I'm preaching to the choir on this board, but it really has to be reiterated. Protein a Class I steroid? So how the hell would they schedule a good T-bone? They're coming down on athletes for taking aminos (oh, HORROR!!) when I knew for a fact guys on the sports teams at my high school were a walking pharmacopia of illicit, and not very performance-enhancing substances.
Gah, too much stupidity this early in the morning. At least no one I've dealt with in my Army career has been idiotic about supplement usage. Hell, there's a GNC at almost every good-sized PX...not that I shop there... I'd rather (and do) frequent the folks who advertise here.
End of rant. Oh, and hello!
