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?

    iv made a right mistake!!

    iv just spent the night in my student accommodation in leeds, prison like door and windows to keep burglars out i thought it was just to be secure. But i thought id take a walk to the local take away, i got talking to the guy behind the desk and he said you must be mad walking around here on your own, i explained i was new and he said its a student area and there alot of muggings gangs of teenagers walk around until the early hours and threaten everyone they meet with screw drivers, he said if you try to fight they will stab you with them.

    he went on to say he knew one 12 year old skinny little lad who walks around with a screw driver and he said he wouldnt think twice about threatining you and he would stab you (im 6.3 106kg) he just said dont come out on your own and get a taxi everywere, and if you have to go out dont act like your scared because it will just make them pick you out and if they start shouting you ignore them because they want a reason to attack.


    i couldnt believe it im gutted i got a taxi the next day thinking the guy was exagerating and the taxi driver said his son had a house on my estate with some friends and he was walking home and a group of kids made him take them to his house and open all the doors while they stole everything, and the taxi company on the bottom of the street had to close because kids kept smashing windows on the taxi's even while the police were watching but there that young they cant do anything. he said if one threatens you and you attack him and get the better of him he will find you with his gang (he went through some stupid gang names like XGG crew ) and they will follow you home and then do you over.

    I suggest you carry a guitar (looks cooler than a violin) case with you everywhere you go with one of these babies inside of it. :evillaugh




    Then when they try to threaten you you can just start them in the with it.

    Plus, you're from England so this look will fit you quite nicely.

    if somebody threatens you with a screwdriver, take the screwdriver from them and stabb it in their heads, in their freaking heads, and they will never look at you again.

    Where abouts in Leeds are you talking about. Sounds to me like Beeston to the south of Leeds city center.

    Police can't do anything because they're too young? That's a new one.

    look at the time i posted it and you should understand.

    the taxi driver said the pests are that young and offending that much there is little they can do, and its costing them too much.

    I think the taxi driver is trying to improve his business by making you afraid to go anywhere on foot. A 12 year old with a screwdriver just doesn't scare me.

    Dude, I am sure you do not encounter the same gang issues in your state as we do in Los Angeles CA. Everyone tries to comeoff all Chuck Norris or Charles Bronson, but when the time comes, it is fight or flight syndrome at its best.

    If you think a flash light is going to help you against 8 guys who have gone through shiet, been shot, stabbed and did not get kisses or hugs from their parents, then you in the Matrix man.


    All police carry guns and flash lights. I have yet to see them do away with the gang issues in Los Angeles.
