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?

    What goes into fish food?

    I've lately picked up some pet goldfish. This thin, flaky food baffles me though. What's it made of? Why must it be so thin? Why do fish love it so much?

    I just dunno.

    I like the smell of it but not the taste. Go figure that one out.

    Personally I think the smell enhances the taste. I usually mix it with water+whey protein or milk+whey protein. Sometimes I'll throw in some peanut butter as well. It's also good on cereal, especially like the nonflavored cereal because it adds an actual taste to the cereal. I tried some with Lucky Charms the other day and it killed the marshmallow taste. Goodluck with the goldfish, mine always freaking die I don't know why.

    Might be because you eat all their food!

    LOL it's a possibility I was careless and didn't feed them.

    It's pretty easy to kill them by over-feeding too. I bet that causes more goldfish mortality than under-feeding. Under-feeding (especially in mice) seems to actually make small animals live much longer.

    Unless you starve them.

    It's because every container of fish food is made with love. And love conquers all, even a foul smell.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    do you check your levels regularly?
    what temp is your water, goldfish aren't tropical, they are cold water fish
    goldfish are king crappers, so you have to do keep up on water changes unless you have a seriously planted tank, which is unlikely as goldfish are serious eaters and will eat your tank clean pretty quick
