4. Never use the passive where you can use the active.
5. Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.



Also, I just found an exclusive outtake from the At the Chalkboard series:

It took me literally 5 minutes after I watched it before it hit me, but that video literally sums up EVERYTHING the xfit has become. Absolutely PERFECTLY fitting video, I honestly can't stop cracking up after watching that awesome find I really think everyone should see that and just think about every question they've had about xfit, because that video answers EVERYTHING.
