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?

    A guy at work died last night

    http://www.theindychannel.com/news/13862899/detail.html

    He was kind of a dumbass, but there were a lot of other people I could name that deserved to die before he did.

    To add to it, he was drunk at the time. They haven't gotten the tox screens back yet, but he was talking to another of our coworkers right before he crashed. It made its way through the grapevine pretty fast. They're not sure he was even driving the car.

    Still...a mistake was made. It's unfortunate that he had to pay with his life.

    Death is always serious, but there is a great example in here. Don't drive over 100 mph! Whoever was driving probably was probably pretty drunk and didn't want to lose his or her license for being over the legal limit.

    So why would you do like 100mph over the speedlimit? So you can stick out like a sore thumb on the street and 99.99% sure of getting pulled over if a cop sees you? When I drove drunk (yes I did until I had to pay a lawyer $7000 + other ****) I always DID the speed limit.

    Yeah, like that will happen. I think you're giving people a little too much credit.

    Get pulled over, hire and attorney for thousands of dollars, lose all your savings and you'll never speed again. Take it from me!

    Actually, he (or whoever was driving) was tagged and was trying to outrun the cops because he was drunk.

    So it's the fault of the police?

    I fail to follow your logic. A cop tries to pull someone over for speeding and suspicion of drunk driving and it's his fault? Unless you're joking, this is one of the most ignorant statements I've ever seen.

    Do you know why police pull over people like him? To stop the possibility of taking someone else's life. I have a strong feeling that you have a grudge against the police because either you or someone else has done something illegal and have suffered for breaking the law.

    Anyways, I don't think he deserved death, there are things much worse than death though.

    It only takes one mistake to kill you and it may be your mistake or someone else's. Drive safely.

    Usually it's a bad idea to 'transplant'. The situation is different in Germany. For one the autobahn is designed for high speeds. For a second to obtain a driver's license in Germany you must pay $1500-2000, and take a MINIMUM of 25-45 hours of professional instruction and 12 hours of theory.

    You've been pulled over since the end of May when you posted this?

    Hmmmm, after being an idiot and just finished off paying thousands of dollars, getting all the points back on my license and finally having money again I've realized how stupid it is. I guess you only learn with time. And after finally paying stuff off and starting to work towards other financial goals I've realized how easy it is to get pulled over.

    My dad almost had his license revoked for doing what I did, and my step-dad just went to jail for drunk driving. I'm seeing it's not all that fun and dandy.

    Edit: Was just trying to warn people of what will happen. I just got the letter in the mail a couple months ago that my license was going to have all points back on it. And with my ridiculous insurance rates I've found that I like to drive the speed limit. Hey, it saves gas! If I really have the urge I'll take it to the track just a city away.
