Through the pursuit of a better, stronger, and well-toned body, bodybuilders risk death, disease, and other maladies along with arrest and imprisonment. Is the risk worth the gain? The four steroids discussed here represent a small percentage of the steroids available to bodybuilders. While there are very heated debates about whether there is “risk”, how to use these drugs, and what they do for you, the lesson here is that the choice to take a steroid must be an informed decision. There are so many variables and dangers that one small miscalculation could mean death.
The ‘Two-Pin’ technique increases sanitation for multiple dose vial users. They draw with the first pin, and then shoot/inject into the body with a new one. This procedure prevents any residual contaminants that may have remained on the drawing pin from being transferred into the body via the injection site. It also makes injection less painful since the drawing needle is necessarily dulled during passage through the rubber stopper atop the vial. A dulled needle increases injection pain because it doesn’t pierce the body as cleanly as an unused one. The protocol below is followed by AAS users who draw from multiple dose vials, but steps 4 - 8 are routinely disregarded by those users who draw from ampoules (also called ampules) and sachets.
Yes, the dogs you describe may be inclined to be assholes, to nip and bite. But no, they do not maim and kill. This is simply another “it’s all how you raise them” post, no mention of genetics, “a Chihuahua is as dangerous as a pit bull” post cloaked in some good advice about how not to raise your Chihuahua. But tell this to the hundreds of people who have been killed by dogs, most of which were in fact pit bulls, some their own dogs. So once we can no longer say “well, those dogs were trained by bad people to be aggressive and fight or they chained it up or they were mean to it” now we can say “well she did’t exercise her pit bull enough or she spoiled it too much” and so there is a “it’s all how to raise them to excuse anything!” Again, I agree that the policies you mention can contribute to propensity to bite—-but not to kill. That takes genetics. The only way to save pit bulls is to stop ignoring their genetics and take steps to be responsible and prepared if you own one. Not to pretend they are the products of being spoiled or house proud or badly fed.
