No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

Well, Don't tempt them (ha ha).

I think it is a race to lock as many threads as you can with that word.

how is that fair, they are closing some of the most used threads?



It's not. They're just having some fun, I'm sure they'll get reopened.

what is catch 22?

it's the most amazing form of circular reasoning ever created, also, a great argument killer... if you're arguing with a five-year old
example (as taken from wikipedia):
The prototypical Catch-22, as formulated by Heller, involves the case of a U.S. Army Air Forces bombardier Yossarian who wishes to be excused from combat flight duty. In order to be excused, he must submit an official medical diagnosis from his squadron's flight surgeon, demonstrating that he is unfit to fly because he is insane. In fact, according to regulations, any sane person would naturally not want to fly combat missions because they are so dangerous. However, by requesting to have one's sanity evaluated, the airman demonstrates that he is in fact sane and therefore is fit to fly because one has to be sane to recognize one's own insanity.

Conversely, any flyer who wished to fly on combat runs implicitly demonstrates that he is insane and unfit to fly and ought to be excused. To be excused the airman would only need to submit a request. Of course, if they did, the "Catch" would assert itself, automatically short-circuiting attempts to be excused from flying.

It's called catch 22 because that is the name of the book that Jastul is talking about. I don't know how it got popularized, but that is where it originated.
