You can never be too rich, too handsome or have too much muscle mass!! :)

You can have too much muscle mass if you are a dancer.

Hmmmm......but then one must ask themself: "is it wrong to have all this muscle mass since I'm a dancer, or is it wrong to be a dancer since it limits my muscle mass". The answer is obvious IMO.  ;D

I can't imagine why dancers waste their time with a sport which promotes health, mental activity, socialization and reproductive opportunity.

As you know, weights are dense and they aren't all that productive alone.  tiphat

Most of the men that were on my university dance company would lift weights to increase the likelihood that would get the opportunity to perform in the key roles where you get to life the woman.  (This was obviously for formation dances not competitions.  Tom, If I told you what dance company I was on you would likely be rather impressed. ;D  Here is a hint, they were the first Americans to win the highly-esteemed British Formation Championships, and they have done so ten times.)

As one component of a overall fitness program, they are fine. The guys who take it to mutant-like extremes and wonder why they don't get any girls never seem to get it, though.

I might be. Even though I engage in weight training, lifts are the last thing that one ought to do on a crowded ballroom floor. (Getting bumped could be disastrous.) Fortunately, amongst serious dancers, there is no need for the subject of weight loss to be broached, nicely or otherwise. (I thought that I would throw that in to pretend to be on topic.)

When they could spend that time lifting weights and building a behemoth-like body, you mean? Yeah, its quite absurd, I agree.  ;D

Hey, I could be a pretty good dancer then:

Its because of wide-spread lesbianism in the western world, isn't it?

When I grew up as a kid, it was all about the Incredible Hulk, He-Man and Conan the Barbarian. If being built like that is wrong, then I don't wanna be right!  :king:

One shouldn't rule out lesbians out of hand. If one treats them with kindness and respect, there is no telling where it might lead.

Again, we are talking formation dancing not competition or social dancing.  The only other people on the dance floor are you team mates and they sure the hell shouldn't be bumping into each other.

Agreed, as part of my "training program" I would date the orneriest, meanest, bitches I could find and get them to purr like kittens.  One of them was a lesbian lawyer.  You should have seen the way she melted when I took off her shirt and said :o "Wow, you are beautiful" :o.  It was like she had never heard that from a man before.  She just melted.  8)

But I am WAY :offtopic:.  Sorry.
