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?

    Black Jack!

    I just got off the boat and won $20 bucks on the black jack table. I know it's not much but it was my first time playing so I was a little pumped. Does anybody else like to gamble? What's the most you've won or lost?

    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

    I've won $155 or so in under 10 minutes in a casino.
    That same night I ended up losing $300 in 20 minutes, luckily it wasn't my money.

    I walked into Bally's with $40 and walked out with $113k.

    I bet huge in certain instances, so it's not like I kept making $40 bets all night, but it shows what gambling can do if you get lucky.

    I play Craps about once a week.

    The most I ever won was in November when I went to Reno. I walked up to the table with $45 and walked away with $675.

    Gambling is cool.

    SF - what the hell game were you playing to win that much?

    Gambling is a tax system for people who don't understand mathematics.

    I thought that was the lottery.

    Your odds arent so bad if you know what you're doing in a casino.

    All casino games are bad news for the average joe. There are a very few games where the odds can be in your favor, over time, with a good system. It's also possible to game the casino with a very complicated system, though they will figure it out quickly and ban your ass.

    So, basically the best gambling is against other people, preferably stupid rich folks.

    Me likey the texas hold 'em. Great fun with friends.

    Better odds than the lottery, but over time the result is the same - less money in your pocket and more money in their pocket!

    The sad face was just because it's easy to walk in with $113k and walk out with $40. Gambling is a rotten thing.

    I think I spent a good portion of the money on dotcom stocks. I drank a lot of it. Bought some clothes. I think officially I pissed away about 10% of it. The rest was put into stocks that I later sold for ridiculous prices.

    Sorry kimpy, but I don't want people thinking I'm your sugar daddy.

    Love to gamble.


    Was doing well at the Luxor a few months ago. However, the Palms wasn't as nice to me.

    gambling is barely half the fun in reno or vegas.

    getting drunk and looking for fights and creating 3 room orgies is what its all about.

    I gamble quite a bit on just blackjack. It's a lot of fun obviously but anything that fun can't be to good for you. In like a total of 15 hours playing on blackjack I have come out about even. Winning the most at one time 120$ and losing the most at one time $200.
