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?

    anyone smoke hookah ?

    ive been smoking hookah regularly lately , i mean every night for about two hours and ive noticed no real toll on my body . my understanding is that there is no intake in tars with this form of smoking and only a miniscule fraction of nicotine in comparison to cigarettes . anyone else have any expreience with hookah smoking and their lifting ?

    I'm confused. Maybe this is something new I don't know about, but I was under the impression a hookah is just paraphernalia.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    didn't someone say Billy Bong Thornton?

    hookah is known by many different names in different parts of the world: a shisha, a nargile (pronounced nar-geelah), a hubble-bubble or hubbly-bubbly, a waterpipe. The most famous instance of hookah smoking is probably that of the caterpillar in Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. A hookah consists of a hollow glass (sometimes clay or brass) base which is filled with water, a vertical pipe topped with a clay bowl for the shisha and coals, and a usually colorful hose. When one sucks on the hose, the smoke is drawn down the pipe and through the water, which cools and filters it. This also produces a peaceful bubbling sound. This sound is as delightful now as the prospect of blowing bubbles in a glass of milk was to most of us when we were in kindergarten.
    sounds like ur typical bong description to me...

    Smoking anything is bad for your body.

    Yeah a trditional hookah is not as bad as smoking cigarettes, and they have different flavors. Strawberry is my favorite smoke flavor and the cool thing is that it is all natural no additives. Where did you get your tobbaco and hookah at?
