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?

    "Help me get to know you" thread revisited

    A few years back Maki posted one of the most amusing threads. Learning how other members see us and others was very insightful. Since we've had a few people come and go I thought it would be cool to see if perceptions changed and it would be good to learn about some of the newbies. So here it is:

    Post what you know about WBB members here.

    for example:
    Hulk: Brit who runs the site and is completely tired of George Bush threads.

    elP: Canadian assclown who loves taco bell and twinkies

    Rookie: A guy who's so nice he makes other Canadians look mean.

    Use this as a guide.

    go on. discuss.

    Cal: Small.

    Belial: Only member who's ego is big enough that it makes him dinner and changes the channels on the TV for him.

    Chris: Hairy but strong.

    Doc: So horny, he actually had me worried when I met him.

    Tina: Has a booty that is in need of some of the LP funk.

    Me: Most ace member and true forum owner.

    Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey:

    I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

    Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.
