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?

    California town on sale on eBay

    "A tiny Californian town, which was the first to be put up for auction on eBay, is on sale again on the online site."

    The owner, businessman Bruce Krall, is hoping for a minimum bid of $1.75m (£1m) for a town he admits does not even have one horse.

    The price does, however, include three cows, eight houses, and a post office.

    Mr Krall says he no longer has time to spend in Bridgeville (population: about 20) but he says the town offers the "opportunity of a lifetime".

    Lush green hillsides, sweeping mountain views and warm sunshine are among Bridgeville's delights to tempt buyers, according to the advertisement on eBay.

    The seller has no doubt that Bridgeville, founded in 1865 in the wake of California's gold rush, is worth the money.

    "You get 83 acres (34 hectares), you get redwoods, you get a river, you get eight houses, you get a post office. That sounds like a bargain for $1.75m," Mr Krall told the BBC.

    Mr Krall bought the former logging town, which lies 420km (260 miles) north of San Francisco, for $700,000 (£400,000) in 2004.

    In 2002, Bridgeville had become the first town to be auctioned on eBay, selling for $1.77m. But the winning bidder backed out after seeing the poor condition of the properties and the overall neglected state of the town.

    The Bridgeville sales site says the town has been fixed and is now "in great shape and ripe to be taken to the next level," suggesting it could be the site for private or corporate retreats, or "you could recreate your own working town".

    Mr Krall says Bridgeville's inhabitants are happy to see their town up for sale again.

    "They're taking it in their stride. It's not like it happens all the time. There's only been three owners in the last 130 years."

    I couldn't find it on ebay.

    That IS a good deal, though, as long as the residents are friendly!

    I'll "Buy it now" if you include the 20 residents in the auction.

    Seriously, I'm in the market for some servants who can cook high protein meals and detail my camaro convertible.
