    Bodybuilders

    Bodybuilders don't have the best reputations when it comes to physical feature enhancement. While not all have resorted to artificial help, many have done so. The results may have produced large physiques, but they've also resulted in side effects, serious medical issues and even death. And since the latter is what this site is all about, perhaps it's time bodybuilders got their own thread.

    The Dead of 2021

    I have had the same thought about bodybuilders. I've never started a thread, so haven't been motivated to do one. But, this is one category that has crossed my mind to do. I think a good case can be made for bodybuilders having their own thread. They aren't martial arts participants and they seem to die off at a younger median rate than the general population. Perhaps, now is the time. Let me see if I can figure this out.

    Although it's becoming more and more of a long shot to win in 2021, I'm not yet done. I had Franck Olivier, the Belgian singer who now becomes part of the 'Curse of the Eurovision' (which is also where an obit link can be found). He was a solo, worth 13 points (8+5).
