Day 74: The origin behind the blog name

Force_of_gravity_QUOTEI can sit for hours and scroll through tones of memes on the web. Its literally one of the most useless and time wasting things you can do when you’re on your phone or computer. So whats the purpose? Easy, shits and giggles, it may be useless but its funny as hell. For my more matured readers (read OLD), a meme can be considered a mimicked theme, including simple phrases or gestures. The origin behind the title of my blog came from one of my friends. I posted an image of me surfing in Portugal, looking all bad ass. I didn’t looked ripped or lean but that wasn’t really my intention, I just wanted to show that I was surfing. So my friend wrote: “Bro, do you even lift?”.

Looking badass with my surfboard in Portugal!

At the time I didn’t really quite understand what he meant by it, I knew that it came from an internet meme. So I did a bit of research and found a definition for what this actually meant:

“Do You Even Lift?” is a condescending expression used on body building and fitness forums to question the legitimacy of someone’s fitness expertise or weight lifting routine.  The phrase is mainly used to aggravate another user during arguments about physical fitness.

There are a ton of funny pictures/memes out there, here are a few of my favorites:

meme-doyouever-bigkid

bro-do-you-even-lift_o_875513

meme-doyoueven-hugeliftmeme-doyoueven-terminator

do-you-even-lift-oreos

So, thinking back on it, my friend called me fat…. And it took me 6 months o figure that out…. Fuck you, man, I hope choke on a powerbar and die.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Eat Hard, Work Hard, Lift Hard.

  1. Nice post. I be taught one thing more challenging on different blogs everyday. It should all the time be stimulating to read content material from other writers and apply a little bit one thing from their store. I’d choose to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
