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?

    Damb is not a word!

    I just want to point out that I am personally offended by the ever-increasing number of illiterate cretins populating the internet that seem convinced that d-a-m-b is an actual word, apparently synonymous with 'damn'.

    I can feel my brain cells wanting to commit suicide every time I see that word in print.

    Fellow WBB members, do the world a favour, and make good use of a hooligan tool or your favourite blunt object to beat sense into anyone you catch trying to use this nonword. We'll all be better off. Really.

    If we did that to every person who misspells words on purpose the number of people on chat rooms and discussion bords would decrease dramatically. It would probably mean death to a lot of them, I mean the board and chat rooms

    I'm not seeing a down side here....

    And anyway, I'm prepared to accept a lot of bad spelling and stupid nonwords. Just not "damb". I'm drawing the line at "damb".

    Yeah, you're right, it may be not that bad after all.

    Maybe it should be mandatory to take a course on grammar and spelling before being allowed to join chat rooms and discussion boards. And I'm joking...

    i think people use damb so it will pass through the ******* censors, that try to stop our **** filled mouths and minds from expressing how we really feel in course/vulgar language that seems to run rampant through modern society

    Censorship rocks!

    Not quite, actually.

    Profanity, nine times out of ten, is simply an expression of futility and/or frustration. People tend to curse when things aren't going their way and want to complain.

    Only the Americans spell it without a 'u'. Smarty-pants.

    And I'm not calling people out on bad spelling, or anything like that.

    I just really REALLY hate "damb".

    I haven't heard anyone use damb yet, but I can understand how that would be really annoying. What I hate besides all the "cutesy" talk (even though these are tied in) is when people use an alternate spelling for something, but the alternate spelling is longer than the original word. An example is "meh" for "me" or "dayum" for "damn." Do these words serve any purpose? I mean, I can sort of understand the reasoning behind using "u" for "you" or something because it's shorter. I don't agree with it, and I think it makes you look like a tool, but that's a different story. At least it has some functionality.

    Of course, we can look at the mentality of people who try to type "cutely" and come up with a lot of reasons why they do the stupid things they do.

    Damb? Is that how you say Damn if you have a cold? I've never heard or seen it like that. The thing that gets to me is the loose, lose, loss bullsh*it on the diet boards.
