    I feel as a regular poster on bodybuilding.com misc forum to inform you of the origins of the "do u even lift meme"

    Pretty much it started out as an insult/ banter when ever someone posted a pic of themselves.
    Guys post pics, fishing for compliments, or post pics thinking their bigger then what they are.
    resulting in 100 reply's of "do u even lift"... which eventually turned into "do you even eat" ... which will probably turn up sooner or later across the web.

    When I looked it up on knowyourmeme it said that it originated when a guy gave some really bad workout advice, and one of the other posters replied, "Do you even lift?".
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    Favourite DBZ game opening go!



    The animation is beautiful, the lyrics to be praised, the surreal intro, and the epic battle.

    Also amazing brofist by Broly and Gogeta.

    Someone asked me why Vegeta didn't skyrocket in power when Krillin blasted him and then got healed compared to Goku in the rejuv chamber. Couldn't tell him why.

    He did, it just wasn't enough to really help put him up to par with Frieza.

    This is basically correct. Vegeta went from 250k, to well over a million. It's hard to say how much higher than a million, but Piccolo seemed to think Vegeta had a chance against Frieza's final form, which is obviously incorrect, but it's likely Piccolo was comparing the power he sensed from Vegeta to Frieza's third form.

    So Vegeta's power at least quadrupled. To be fair though, there's still a discrepancy there. Goku did, after all, get 33 times stronger from recovering from his injuries, while Vegeta definitely didn't pass 3 million for his power level, meaning even if you take a liberal estimate and assume his power went to like 2.8 million, then he still only got 11 times stronger compared to Goku's 33.

    Goku did always seem to increase in power faster than Vegeta though, so that could just be Goku being Goku. On the other hand, maybe Goku's injuries were overall more severe, so maybe he got a larger power increase. Sure, Vegeta had a hole in his chest, but the rest of his body was basically fine. Goku seemed to be pretty fucked up everywhere, so it's possible Goku was more injured if he had a lot of internal bleeding and broken bones.
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    Maybe when Goku was kicked out of his body by Ginyu, it counted as a "death" since his soul had left his body, so his power would skyrocket once his soul got back to his body, but nobody noticed because his body was still f'ed up by everybody playing curbstomp with it.

    Interesting theory. It's not impossible, though it'd be hard to prove.

    Hey Guys, remember this THIRTY YEAR OLD cartoon from japan from the 80s called Dragon Ball Z? Still relevant still talking about it still watching it still loving it. Have you seen the episode where they are screaming at the top of their lungs and flexing every muscle possible? Have you seen the episode where that doesn't happen?

    Don't start

    Goku simply makes gains faster than Vegeta. It's mentioned several times, even by Vegeta, that Goku has a gift. Goku pretty consistently makes better gains from training than Vegeta does, so I assume he gains faster by being beat up as well.

    Guys, remember that one time where some guy came into a DBZ thread and was like, "don't enjoy DBZ, it's an old cartoon". Yeah, he was cute. I kind of wanted to pet him.

    Love that one as well. I think I mentioned it a few pages back. What I like about fanfics like this one, is how the authors cover the holes and inconsistencies that Toriyama didn't do, or even care about. They also make certain movie characters that wouldn't fit into canon, fit in a way that makes sense. And of course, they're talented at what they do.
