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?

    Step 1: Take car to mechanic
    Step 2: Ask him to replace radiator
    Step 3: Give him credit card.
    Squats work better than supplements.

    Here is my preferred method:
    Step 1: Order parts.
    Step 2: Attempt repair. Mess up badly.
    Step 3: Attempt to repair the repair. Mess things up further.
    Step 4: Take car to mechanic
    Step 5: Ask him to replace radiator
    Step 6: Give him credit card.

    Guys, you're both overcomplicating things.


    Step 1: Take out old radiator
    Step 2: Put in new radiator

    It's a Toyota, you shouldn't have to replace the radiator for another 25 years...

    I thought a radiator is what the heat comes out of when you heat your house?

    You're right, except that Murphy's law has a special section concerning any auto repair involving fluids and hoses: There will be a leak.

    Well, it's sort of the same thing except it's helping to keep your car's engine at the right operating temperature. Basically a radiator is a heat exchanger. The radiator in your house heats the air by first getting the water hot using a boiler. The hot water then circulates through the pipes into the radiators where the heat in the water is exchanged into the air. As a result, the water cools and then goes back to the boiler to start the process again. A car's radiator does the same thing except the boiler is the engine. Coolant is used instead of water because it has a lower freezing point and higher boiling point. So, as the hot coolant is passing through the radiator, it is cooled by exchanging the heat to the air coming through the front grill. This cooler coolant cycles back to the engine. This process allows the engine to stay at a stable operating temperature.

    Whoa......I had a howstuffworks moment there, lol.

    The half-million citizens of the District of Columbia, like citizens of the fifty states, bear all of the obligations of American citizenship: they are required to obey the laws passed by Congress; they pay federal taxes; they serve in the military; and they fight and die in our wars. Yet they lack the most basic right that should accompany American citizenship—the right to full voting representation in Congress. This makes the United States the only nation in the world with a representative, democratic constitution that denies citizens of its capital representation in the national legislature. In fact, no fewer than 183 nations provide their citizens the type of representation citizens of Washington, DC are denied.

    which I am sure he knew...


    Um....Belial pretty much summed it up . you will have to drain the radiator,remove the upper and lower hoses, disconnect the electric fans,remove the brackets holding the radiator in and pull it out and throw it scraming apelike and go stomp on it.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    question is, why do you need to replace it?

    Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. I thought about that, but it was hard to tell if he was being serious or not. Still, it might help someone reading this that knows nothing about cars.

    Get the "mechanics" guide to your car (mine is made by Helms) and you should be pefectly fine if you are slightly mechanically inclined.
