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?

    Sychokid trying to solve an equation on AIM:

    RolyPolyAA: 3x - 7 < 8.
    RolyPolyAA: okay well
    RolyPolyAA: minus 3x from one side
    RolyPolyAA: to the other
    RolyPolyAA: then take the 8
    WiNgS162k3: lol
    RolyPolyAA: and subtract it to the other side
    RolyPolyAA: and make them have sex
    WiNgS162k3: u dont know what the fvck ur doing!
    RolyPolyAA: until they produce a 69
    RolyPolyAA: and la la alal
    WiNgS162k3: LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think... it is just like static electricity.. the flow of electrions from one object, through a medium ( air ) to another object..

    I do not understand what your question is.. but static electricity, electric dischage (ED) can really damage electronic components because they induce extra current into the electrical circut of the component, overloading it and blowing it to peices :P

    rephrase your question and i can anwer you better..

    They're trying to tell you it gets zapped by static electricity, but in reality it freezes up because their programmers are crap.

    People wonder why I call myself Mr. T. One dude asked, 'does the T stand for tough?' I said no. Another dude asked if the T stands for my last name, Tureaud. No it does not. The 'T' in Mr. T stands for tuna. T loves tuna.

    Check the manufacturer's website - sometimes they release firmware updates that fix these mysterious problems.

    Electrostatic discharge could affect electronics in a number of different ways. It could clock registers/flip flops which might screw up any asms/fsms that are implemented. Send control signals to different parts of the microproc. That's just a random guess though and more dependant on the hardware implmentation of your mp3 player. But what you need to know is the static electricity SCREWS stuff up on probably the OS layer of your mp3. Resetting it will do the trick. Cheaper mp3 players will not be as well sheilded from outside noise as more expensive ones (in general).
