PC World has published a list of The 25 Worst Web Sites. Weighing in at #25, Rentmychest.com:
Look up the word hunk in any dictionary, and you will not find a picture of a bare-chested Chris Pirillo, the guy behind download sites such as lockergnome.com. But you used to be able to find several such pictures at this site, where the pasty, paunchy Pirillo auctioned off messages, written on his chest with magic marker, for $20 a pop. These days the marker-based messages are gone, replaced by a single background image that I wish I hadn’t seen and a bunch of linked keywords. Believe it or not, the keywords are actually more expensive, starting at $200. Look, Chris may know his downloads, but please, somebody buy this man a gym membership.
I get the last laugh, though. My chest rentals have generated over $5,000 in revenue so far – which is likely a little more than you’ve made from your own torso. 😉
I did it; My weight loss goal has officially been met as of this morning. After a swift 40-minute workout, I stepped on the Tanita scale and weighed in at 145 pounds. Three months ago, I was sitting at a hefty 175lbs. Today, I’m 145lbs – a full 30lbs lighter. I’m so incredibly satisifed with the results, knowing that I’ll likely stabilize in the 140 – 145 range. It certainly took tremendous dedication on my part – but now that I’m in this state, I intend on staying here. My healthier weight will be maintained largely by watching caloric intake, so that even when I’m not able to exercise, I can stay within my body’s daily intake requirements. In some ways, I’m done – my weight loss goal has been achieved. But in many ways, my journey has only begun. It will take a conscious effort not to let myself slip back to where I’m not happy. Thank you, Fatblasters – thank you.
