    Social Media and Gear

    I'm doing my research and would like to do one cycle. In doing my research I'm noticing in the various groups I'm in, guys posting stuff that they have purchased. Being fairly new to this I can't see that as being smart posting pictures on Facebook of schedule 1 pharmaceuticals. Any opinions on this. Also I turn 50 soon should I even try this? Thanks in advance for any responses.

    I don't see 50 being an issue at all! I agree, some people/places/sites are WAY too open with stuff though, it's like they're just asking for the attention.

    Just remember fake profiles are everywhere ... and although I have no personal experience with it no doubt law enforcement is using social media as well ...

    My strong recommendation would to keep any illegal drug use to anonymous posting only ....

    Social media is a terrible way to source gear and 50 isn’t old. I think? I’m 48.

    There's nothing good about social media.

    Now gear at 50? Depends on if you have been on gear since you were 25 and didn't lead a healthy lifestyle. Since that's not your case, I dont see a problem. My first test only cycle was about 48 y.o. just be smart about it

    I'm just doing research at the moment until I can find something legit. I definitely want to try something before 51.

    If that's you in the profile pic kudos. When I was 15 my dream wasn't to be like Mike it was to be like Lee Haney, Arnold Schwarzenegger or Phil Hill. I'd like to realize the dream before I'm to old.

    Can confirm we do. Although, I'm speaking for the UK. In the last 20 crimes I can think of that I've dealt with in the last 2 months, 18 of those were charged with evidence achieved VIA a social media platform. This is anything from what you post, you say, your hobbies and interests, where you commonly go. Even if you delete all of that, there's people who would have seen it and saved it.

    Be smart, don't use social media as a middle man or a way to post how edgy you are. Not that I'm saying OP or any of you are, Just a word of advice.

    Also, I've never in my career dealt with a PED or AAS case. I deal with everything from spitting at people to severe Sexual Assaults, So honestly I think you'll be fine but I'd still play it safe.

    The gyms the best place to head to. Build bonds, make friends.

    EDIT: the irony of outing myself while lecturing others to be anonymous does crack me up. Dont be like CantTouchThis.

    Thanks. My suggestion is to forget about those guys and try to just be a better version of yourself. Do that and you may just surprise yourself.
