The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís 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?

    Conan the Barbarian Comics = Awesome

    I think I've started a thread on here before talking about comic books and which ones people like or read but didn't get much of a response. Apparently you guys don't like comic books. Well let me just tell you there are a lot out there available on the internet via torrents and I've found both Star Wars expanded universe comics to be excellent and now my newest little favorite series?

    You guessed it, Conan the Barbarian. I'm starting at the very beginning of the series which was made in 1970 and even at the ripe old age the art and storylines are excellent. Much better than the Star Wars ones from the same time era.

    Conan is an awesome character, much like the movie but even more manly. He's always putting "wenches" in their place and there's even a point where he punches a horse in the face... and I'm only on the 12th issue so far! Seriously I feel like this guy is my idol at this point and I'd highly recommend anyone here who likes comic books check his stuff out. Here's a couple of images of what it looks like:





    Oh and also looking at the ads from the 1970's in these comic books is hilarious. Ads are so misleading it's a joke, there are also a lot of bodybuilding ads and whatnot.
