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?

    Moving

    I don't know why I'm really posting this here. I guess for some potential connections or feedback on the area. But whatever.

    As of July 1st, a week from tomorrow, I'm packing up my meager possessions and hauling ass down to Ft. Lauderdale, in what will be at least a quasi-permanent move (not that I'll never leave, but I will be living there for the indefinite future).

    Anyways, barring the friend that I helped move down two weeks ago and whom I'll be living with, I know scant few people. We met quite a bit while I was vacationing, and found a lot of good hangout spots, but if anybody's a native and can point out any of the local resources, it'd be much obliged.

    So yeah. Wooo Florida.

    The intercostal is pretty cool as long as you don't kill the Manatees with your boat.

    Ft Lauderdale is a cool place, I think you'll enjoy it. I'm not a native but I've vacationed there a few times.

    I would have waited until Hurricane season was over before I moved, but maybe you're looking for an adventure.

    Hey dude, plenty of places to hang in that area, Id be game for meeting up and showing you a couple spots if youd like. Riverfront is the fun spot in ft lauderdale itself (which is most likely where you went), but the casino is nearby and a good place as well (bars and clubs out back). I dont know where all the gyms are up there (though you probably scouted that out already). Let me know man

    Y2A, word. Riverfront and the strip on A1A was mostly where I hung out, yeah. Didn't even realize there was a casino around though. Probably because I was drunk.

    I've got a few gyms in mind already; there's a couple of Gold's around and a World Gym that all look pretty decent. I'm not going to make up my mind till I take a personal tour of each though.

    I'll definitely be in touch when I get down that way. My roomate's already got DSL hooked up so I'll have 'net access.

    Yeah, the casino is south and west of the riverfront/las olas area, its a good time. Its open 24/7 as well. Being drunk is not against the rules, so I forgive you Sounds like a plan, good luck with the move.

    **** you. WHen I move back I am brining 6 hurricanes with me and leaving them in your neck of the woods.
    Dude you will Love Fla.
    I will be around shortly ..alas Ft lauderdale is a ways away from where I am going back to.
    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.

    haha yeah I found that out the hard way.

    93.1 was a nice change of pace-- I actually heard RATM, vintage Metallica, and Pantera all in the span of 20 minutes. We don't get much besides country here, as you could imagine.

    Rock-- yeah, I think so too
