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?

    I Just Popped Wood (GOW 2)

    Check out some of the gameplay footage from GOW2. It's going to be SICK.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Yes, this game is going to be awesome. It seems like games these days either go for the overbloom look or the brown look. I'm not digging either of those styles but this game should be fun for releasing some aggression.

    This is a useless quote that means nothing but yet defines me as a profound intellect.

    I just fixed my first xbox 360....

    I've repaired several PS2's in my dad and a lot of computers but never an xbox. It was really simple to tear down and after removing the incredibly poorly planed out x-clamp system and replacing with machine screws and nylon washers the xbox went from RRoD to I've been playing CoD4 for 2-3 hours with notta single issue.

    I did this one for my friend, I've already got five other people wanting repairs now and I'm charging them $40 a pop (they're not friends) and maybe 2-3 more potentials.

    I even scored one for me, guy didn't think it was fixable and said he didn't even care about it so I took it and repaired his too. I probably wont be messing with it for a little while though, but my friend wants me to get gears now that I got a free xbox (well not free... I paid $4 for the stuff I needed to fix it).

    I was supprised that so many people opened their boxes trying to fix them themselves when M$ now has a 3 year warranty on this kinda thing. Oh well, money in my pocket

    Playing COD4 via components though the picture quality isn't breath taking.... maybe I should try out HDMI. It does load faster then it does on my PC though.

    Its a third person shooter, but when you aim it almost zooms into a first person view.

    Mainly I'll be getting this game sometime?

    And because a lot of folks here had they're systems RRoD on them and I don't know what they did, if they bought another or if they sent theirs in. Just putting it out there how easily they can be fixed.

    Also because if I do end up playing GoW2 on live I can get some gamertags or know who to ask for theirs because all the 360 fans usually go to these threads.

    If your attempting the xclamp fix yourself though I suggest not using metal washers or spring washers...

    just the 5mm machine screws (10 mm in lenght) and some 2mm (thick) nylon washers.

    My components are decent so the difference between HDMI and component isn't that great... noticable but not that great (on PS3 anyways)

    GoW 2 looks cool, but I'm glad someone mentioned D3...

    Also excited for Starcraft 2 and Fallout 3... I'm a pretty big nerd, but have played games a lot less since I started working out.

    Why would the creator of a game, a guy who's worth millions of dollars, live in an apartment complex?
