    Not a huge fan of pit bull terrier dogs, (is it Pitbull or Pit Bull?), mostly becuase of the way that people raise then and what they train them to do. But, at the same time, I really don't have anything against them either. They are agressive, but a lot of that is trained into them. Sort of like a person that trains to get a boxer, but is raised in a bad home, he ends up having the body to do damage and the mindset to not care. See the difference between the photos below, some look like a guard dog, some look like a dog ready to play with kids.

    Anyhow, this thread was about something abnormal though, with some type of genetic difference causing extra muscle mass. It's very interesting overall I think.

    These may in fact not be photoshopped, considering all of the advances in micro-biology that have occurred in the past generation, maybe they're just getting that close to identifying and isolating the various parts of the genome that make up muscle mass, etc. Would be freaky to see stuff like this common in the next generation.

    You're right, Steve. They're certainly NOT photoshopped. I had that exact picture of the bull opening the chapter in one my Biology books a few years back. The chapter proceeded to talk about how the absence of some particular something causes an almost unstoppable amount of muscle growth just from the easiest tasks. As you can tell, I don't remember much about it.

    Are you serious!? That actually kind of surprises me. I wonder how many people go to Google to look up information on this and end up finding a bunch of GM enthusiasts talking about how little they know about it. LoL.

    Photo-chops on the dogs IMO.

    I am certain the first photo, the one with the bull was not photo shopped. If it had been, the woman would have insisted that her butt be made to look smaller.................
