    Presumably flippers add leverage, while body suits merely lessen friction. A comparison would be weightlifters: they are allowed to add powder on their hands to avoid slippage when gripping the barbell, but are not allowed to use a car jack.

    Quite a few people apparently did (the record went in 2007 amid much hype.)

    Bonds is currently facing a federal indictment for alleged perjury and obstruction of justice on steroid-related matters.

    This thread is only ten years old and as such isn't even the oldest thread I've had an email about lately but readers may find this of interest:

    To whom it may concern,


    Chess Chat has posted an interview with Prof. Julian Savulescu: http://www.chesschat.org/showthread....lian-Savulescu


    Me and Prof. Julian Savulescu have also published an article on doping in chess. Maybe this could be interesting for your readership:

    Thanks for posting. I did indeed find it of interest, and agree with Dr Savulescu on this topic anyway, e.g. "Premature regulation runs the risk of creating a detrimental culture of suspicion that ascribes unwarranted blame."

    You mean I could end up with Capa Fan's brain and politics - please spare me, just put me in the coffin.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land
