    I though people who worked out were happier in general! Endorphins and all...

    My thoughts exactly... However as tragic as this situation is, I would guess that it was someone who was not a member and had an ax to grind with a member or the club.And was probably one of the last people to be chosen for dodge ball in school.

    these thing s always happen due to jealosy and envy. People watch tv their whole life and base their own life on that. there's nothing real about the stories or people we see on TV or in the movies. it's all unreal. Coming to that realization is hard and painful to deal with in a world where we are always told that we can be what ever and whoever we want to be... it's not true, especially when we all want to be Bran Pitt and Angelina Jolie... no positive attitude will ever make that happen. You have to find your own way... even if you look like a wildebeast.

    I bet he was not a regular gym goer. Athletic people secrete endorphins. They usually are happier than most.

    It's disturbing that I'm not really shocked by these shooting anymore as they occur with a regular frequency these days.

    He was allegedly psychotic and kept a blog of his feelings and intentions. It's a shame that nobody took him seriously. :frown1::mad:

    think of all the lonely people in the world. i have a nice body and money and a mustang gt.....but women just stick there nose up in the air. i get more looks from guys!!! i would not have the balls to do something like he did. but i guess loniness could eat at you like a cancer. people can be cruel. i go to the gym and it does make me feel better. this is just one guy out of many. hope to god it never happens again.

    This kind of crap really opens your eyes to me...especially when it happens so close to me...the gym is the last place I would ever expect to not come back from. People are nuts, now there's going to end up being increased security at gyms because of people too I bet in the future, we're going to end up having to go through a security checkpoint everywhere eventually.
