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?

    Bulletproof Vests

    Hey guys

    So heres the deal.. I work as a bouncer at a couple rather rough bars. Last night some guy got stabbed where I was working. Anyway, one of the other guys I work with was wearing a kevlar vest, and I think it might be a good idea if I get one too, if I plan to do this for the enxt while till I graduate..

    Question is.. I dont know much about them, so if anyone has any ideas on brands / quality / etc. I want one with full front and back, as well as kidney plates on it. Anyone here with experience with tactical vests, bullet / stab proof vests, etc, I'd love to hear some ideas on what I should look for

    S
    Let me get this straight...
    You get play from the girl of your dreams
    PR Shoulder Press using the 3 digit dumbells
    Hit up some fun with the guys
    Then get more play
    (all in one afternoon/evening I might add.. S)
    You are a success my friend . Share your secrets. (Crippy)

    Expensive. Not gonna be that useful for bouncing.

    Better idea - be attentive and learn how to disable those freaks before they can get a hand in their pocket.

    I would go work somewhere else. I used to be a bouncer until I saw somebody get shot in the head right in the parking lot...it's not worth it for $10 an hour. If I wanted to put up with that, I would have joined the marines.

    Lol I get paid double that, and under the table so no tax.

    But my job was cush, just a very upscale lounge club, no problems other than everyone thinking they are VIPs. I don't think I would have ever kept the job if I felt there was a reasonable chance for personal harm.

    But then, it wasn't my livelihood, just an on the side thing to get extra cash. Quit recently since I'd rather free up my weekends.

    If you have experience, I would try and search around for safer places to work. No matter the pay, in my opinion it's not really worth it if there are stabbings or gunplay on a somewhat regular basis.

    Just remember that some bullet proof vests don't stop knives, ice picks, ect, only bullets. Same as the puncture resistant ones worn by correction officers, those won't stop bullets but will stop knives, shanks, ect.

    How long ago did you bounce at Omars? I use to go there often about 4 years ago.

    Thanks man, funny you mentioned that, one of the guys at work last night was telling me that he got some stuff from there a few weeks ago. I'm gonna go check it out this week.

    Just to clarify.. Its not that I'm worried about getting shot, its more as a deterrant, and just in case someone tries to stab something at me. I guess a stab vest might be better. I can handle myself pretty well and detain them, its just that if theres like 5 guys we're taking out, I cant be protecting my face and torso at the same time, so it just takes care of one variable..

    Funny how "someone" keeps posting in my journal, and other posts.. I guess some people just get obsessed or something, its really pretty sad.

    I've always wanted to stab someone with an icepick. One time at an antique store I bought a lot of five antique turn-of-the-century icepicks that are just painful to look at. I keep them in my trunk. Rusty as hell, they'd definitely give you lockjaw.

    Anyways I'm with stupid. Move to a club in a different area. If you've got enough experience at a punk joint like you seem to work right now you might be able to move up a rank and be a doorman at a classier place where the worst thing you'll see is two prats slapfighting over the comfy chair in the pink room.

    ^ This is true. A ballistic vest's fibers are 'loose' to distribute the impact evenly over the entire area. A puncture resistant vest has either plates, which can impede mobility, or some of the high quality ones have new really tightly woven fibers that stop a puncturing weapon from slipping through (and can stop very light firearms, like 22s and zip guns).

    Of course either way as soon as someone sees you're wearing a vest (and they're quite obvious) they'll just stab or shoot you in the head/throat. Not much of a problem for police, who are typically at distance and behind cover... but a very real problem for the bouncer who is afraid a patron he's bouncing will get unruly.

    edit: And it's not 'some'... it's 'most'. Only the highest grade military or swat armor will protect from both.... and most soldiers in the military don't have the 'highest grade' body armor.

    Most folks who stab a cat at a bar will get him below the waist anyway - stabbing him in the glutes o thigh.

    Why?

    It will take attempted murder off of the table in some places.
