The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    yeah my hair is pretty long too.. about as long as deeders was in the "deeder and ruffian pics"

    and its true.. loads of students have that long shaggy haired look about them.. mostly because we're too lazy/poor to get it cut all the time!

    I think it looks horrible. I keep my own at setting one on a barber razor through the sides and setting two through the top... that's short enough to not be a nuisance to care for while having a little color on my pale-as-snow skull. Whatever works for you, though.

    Just for the record... It really kinda peeved me that he posted this on here before I even got to see it... HE didnt even tell me about it until later that morning- he wasnt even going to tell me I just managed to guess.... I think he wanted to 'suprise' me.

    Also for the record- I really am not a fan of the bald look period... especially not in replacement of what was his beautiful hair. I told him if he wants to go bald to at least go fuzzy bald like what Shock Boxer described.... At least then 1) his head doesnt look like its covered in snow... and 2) it covers all the funny looking bumps and moles and stuff.

    I do not like it though... he knows that... and he told me he didnt care, so yeah... YOU need to discourage the haircut not encourage it LOL!

    *Cries*... I want the lovely hair back!

    In all honestly and at the risk of sounding a little gay, the bald look doesnt suit you from what i see on the pic!

    You look a bit like Vinnie Jones' younger brother..
