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?

    Hey what's up all?

    Thought I'd drop in and see if any of the old farts are still kicking around. Haven't been here in a long ass time, so wouldn't be surprised if most people have no clue who I am.

    Good to see the board still alive and kicking, I guess Cloughface hasn't screwed it up too badly, probably too busy polishing his wooden british teeth.

    Anyway, I'll pop back in later and see if anyone I recognize is still around, hopefully more than just a few "wtf who are you?" posts.

    Talk to you all later,

    I bet 12 posts he never comes back. He just needed to know if people remembered or cared that he was gone.

    That post might make him come back to prove me wrong, screwing up my whole theory, but i'll stick to the bet. 12 posts. No joke.

    Lol, I'm surprised at how many people are still around. Justin I thought you were gone for good, considering you'd gone AWOL before me even. Still remember that fun get-together, cramming so many people into my tiny condo. What was the Aussie girl's name from the site again? Lol, I remember carrying her over my shoulder passed out down the stairs of that bar the first night out. I wonder if I still have the vids I recorded of Budiak kickin around, those were pretty damned funny.

    Bam you whore, still fighting? Did that problem with your back ever resolve itself? Still striving to be as pretty as me?

    Good to see you all anyway, I may have to troll around a bit, randomly ban someone for old times sake. Seems like I still have my super powers.
