The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Good news, bad news

    I am in the coop program at my school and last semester I bought a bunch of dress shirts for all of my interviews. Now, I am getting ready for a new round of interviews but the shirts no longer fit.

    I am stoked on the one hand because I am getting huge. But I am pissed on the other hand because I have to buy a whole bunch of new shirts.

    You should still wear one to your next interview, and then burst out like the incredible hulk.


    Or just buy some new ones.


    Nice avatar by the way.


    Wait... what was the purpose of this post?

    So as not to start another pointless thread... and seeing as it is somewhat on topic as someone brough up the Hulk.

    Did the Incredible Hulk fight crime?

    Look, I found geek paradise. I didn't find any evidence of crime fighting for the hulkster, though.

    I went into the "University Village" today to get a haircut. The people at the salon don't speak English. I don't recommend anyone get a haircut from someone who doesn't understand their language.

    I have to wear custom tailored pants and shirts to work and just bought some....

    but my car was just broken into and all of my custom tailored pants and shoes and my phone were stolen and I hate russians.

    But I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance/


    wait...no, i didn't
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    On Topic: I had a great chest/tri workout last night but got home really late and didn't get enough sleep. Bitchy today like after a bad lay. Ugh.
