The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Cheapest means of travel in the US

    From Los Angeles, California to Detroit, Michigan.. so far i have the following quotes:

    275 (or 200 depending on day) by plane - which is a no no because i hate planes and will not fly on one if my life depends on it. (roundtrip)
    198 by bus - greyhound (roundtrip)
    about 500 by train (roundtrip)
    car would be lets see, 3000 miles (roughly) divided by 300 miles/gallon = 10 full tanks one way.. so uhm 300-350 bucks one way?
    anything else that could be cheaper?

    want to go spend the winter/xmass with my female couzin who promised me pretty much all of her friends but the distance/cost to get there is a bit high.

    Any ideas? Thanks

    craig - not hating planes, just real freakin scared of the thought that in case of an emergency there isn't a DAMN thing i can do.

    I can swim, i can drive, i can run like the wind, but i'm sure that regardless of the situation I CAN'T FLY!

    in would take the plane. it may wind up costing just as much as the bus, but you will wind up there about 12 hours sooner.

    Hitchhiking would be cheapest, but take a plane.

    Traveling all the way to Detroit for pussy seems desperate.

    Take the plane...the bus is more scary than flight, really.

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    only problem i have with planes is the fact that 99.9% of the time, if there is a mulfuntion, you're screwed and have absolutely 0 control of the situation.

    I have driven back and forth from detroit to LA (a few times) - I really don't think that is a viable option unless you are moving. I have riden a Greyhound ONCE in my life. Not only was it overly-cramped and SMELLY and took about twice as long as a normal car drive, it scared the beejeezus out of me. You don't want to Greyhound it. So that leaves airplane or train or walking. Train might be expensive, but you pay are paying not to fly. I must say that Detroit Metro airport is something everyone must experience at least once in their life - great people watching (I've never seen an entire family of midgets anywhere else) and gives you someplace to compare LA to.
