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?

    LOL I always love it when developers put random stuff in like that. Isn't it called an "Easter Egg" or something random like that? They always have that sorta stuff in video games.

    Geez people, it's not because of google developers. It's called googlebombing. The page rank is based on the popularity of sites linking to a given site and so there are enough popular sites linking "failure" to the GWB bio to boost it to #1.

    ^ I don't know man, there are certain oddities when it comes to Google. I've seen stuff like this before and the search doesn't always just list webpages in order of popularity or hits. Try googling "ounces per cup" and you'll see what I mean (although it's not the best example, there are better ones but I can't think of any off the top of my head) instead of popping up webpages it just goes straight to telling you how many ounces there are per cup.

    And I highly doubt that the majority of people looking up "failure" were looking for info on GW...

    Okay, look, your conspiracy theories might be really cool, but google for "google bomb" and you'll learn about what's really happening.

    Christ, the wiki entry for google bomb lists this exact one:

    Geez.

    Ooooooooh, see what I didn't get was that people were purposely doing it, like as an organized effort.

    Ha! "Tim needs help". Nice
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    Josh needs a new bicycle.
    I do.

    Surely to stop hatred what we need is more respect for one another?
    ... However, imposing a law won't stop hatred.

    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.

    Apparently I need:

    "A stable, secure, and loving home."

    "My body is not growing as it should, and I can't process food properly."

    "A patient, experienced family who is willing to commit to adoption
    and be able to meet my special needs."

    WTF?

    Google has many of these features built in. It has the converter as you mentioned, it has a calculator (Ex. type in six(45) ). You can also get definitions, by typing define: keyword (Ex. define: powerlifting). There are MANY others as well. Check out http://www.google.com/help/features.html

    google > life

    The best function is the one where you ask them a question and they google it for you and come up with an answer (links, references, all the works) Costs ~ $ 5. God knows how many times that's saved my ass the night before an assignment is due.
