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?

    Real or Artificial?

    Well what kind of Christmas tree do you have? This is my first tree in 5 years. For me its real, or I wouldn't bother. For me real completes the experience.

    Also for a little Christmas cheer heat some pepermint schnapps and add swiss miss chocolate. After a few mugs you'll be ho-ho-hoing.

    I prefer real trees but have an artificial one because my wife wanted it. The smell of a white pine is great at christmas time.

    I was going to put a comment about real or fake in my first post, but didn't want to set the pace for this thread.
    I think the smell is why I like real too.
    I decorated my palm tree last tree. Whats Ficas?

    I love lights. Though Iam to lazy to actually go outside. I like the neon feel in the house. Maybe I'll leave them up all year, give it the dorm room look.

    I think I got a defective tree. I can't smell it. I am a little stuffed, but not much. Maybe I haven't left the house long enough. If not I am bring the tree back for a refund.

    You probably burned your nose out trying to smell it too much. Step out side for a minute then try it.

    What about favorite Christmas movie? Mine is National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Last couple years I've started to like Christmas Story, I can see the truth in it. Never like it as a kid though.

    I went to the bar for an hour last night and walked the dog today. Thats my life.
    Wait and see after work tomorrow. My noise is a little stuffy. It isn't bothering me but maybe effecting my sense of smell. Like I said the smell is the big thing.

    Ditto National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Chevy Chase and Randy Quaid are great.

    definately has to be real.

    But saying that we have a fake tree in my student house because a live one would sit and die in the corner for the next 6 months.
    half the time I have no idea what you're talking about. the other half, I'm not listening.

    Real.

    I decorate a 6' metal pole. Festivus, the holiday for the rest of us.

    Jk, I get a real try as well. It's tradition, and it completes the holiday ensemble, with the smell and needles to pick up.

    Thats cool. I like little trees in the house. I got a royal palm. It hasn't gotten any taller. Branches keep dying too. It keeps growing more palms though.

    I've had both, and fake pines are a lot better. Otherwise all this sap and crap gets all over your hands when decorating it.
