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?

    Chewbacca is a wookie from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about that; that does not make sense. Why would a wookie, an 8 foot tall wookie, want to live on Endor with a bunch of two foot tall ewoks?

    Rename this thread "random stories mushed into one thread".

    And for the record, CC was lying. This was thoroughly debated earlier and he just turned it all against us. Nice try though.

    While I appreciate the complement, and hope everyone reads my personal story, I must add that to my knowledge, Chewbacca never lived on Endor (unless it was some silly-a** EU thing, not approved by Lucas), nor did he blow-up King Dons with firecrackers.

    Therefore, Superman destroys He-Man, I destroy King Dons Brand cupcakes, "Son of the Owner of Wolf-Dog" destroyed his own arm while sledding off his own roof, and Chewbacca destroys nothing on the Forest moon of Endor other than an Imperial Walker.

    But He-Man has the power of Greyskull behind him. What does Superman have powering him? The sun. And obviously, castle Greyskull outweighs the sun, since the sun is in space and it's weight depends on which gravitational scale you measure it

    Either way, He-Man's secret-identity disguise was much better than Superman's

    But the sun is so massive, it has its own gravitational field. Which is technically true of castle Greyskull, but Greyskull's field would be SOOOO much smaller than that of the Sun.

    So Superman CLEARLY trumps He-Man. <she SNIFFED!>

    the only reason he-man whooped @ss was because his enemies were complete dumb@sses...i mean common, the guy is half naked wearin only a loin clothe, and fights with a sword...sounds more like a playgirl photo shoot rather than a action cartoon...superman would clearly win cause hes just awesome, (and he gets my vote cause he is wearin more clothes)

    Keep in mind, Superman's greatest enemy was some bald guy. At least Skeletor had powers or a stick that shot fire or something, it's been a while

    i've got a quick input on this thread..
    lets say you have two guys identical that weight 200 lbs. one can bench press 300, but the other can only bench 200. why is that? what's the science behind that? to put it more clearly.. how much muscle/strength does it take to push/pull 1lb? any logical sense behind that?? im just confused...

    I wonder if a dish of braised pork belly tastes better than a dish of broiled skinless boneless chicken breasts.
