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?

    Adventures in Africa

    Ok for old times sake ill throw out a new one. i was recently in Djibouti, Africa. We were pretty much out in the middle of nowhere in a kind of rocky wasteland area. We were out driving around when we saw a small group of hunter gatherer types. About 6 or 7 small kids and 2 older women watching them. We decided it would be cool to hang out with them. So we got out of the vehicle and went over to see what was up. Obviously the language barrier was present, so we had to make due with some version of sign language. This essentially got us nowhere. Finally we realized that maybe we should give them some type of offering. We had quite a bit of food on us so we gave the little kids some m&m's. The second they tasted them these kids started wildin out. im talking jumping up and down, screaming in tongue and ****. Completely freaking out with joy. Each eating half a pack at a time. Then we gave them some jelly and other things loaded with a lot of sugar. They just couldnt get enough of it. Shortly thereafter half their village showed up. We couldnt give enough of the food to them, so we just left a lot of the sweet stuff to the little kids. Anyway as we were loading up to roll out a group of the men showed up and pretty much hijacked it all. Pushed the kids aside and took it all for themselves. Anyhow we left but wound up coming back to the area about an hour later. When we showed up we saw the three men that had taken all the candy puking it all up. I guess they ate all of it by themselves. It was pretty cool seein them get theirs in the end. Anyhow it was pretty amusing and one of the more memorable moments their. Next to when a translator tried to talk us into trading one of the american chicks for a couple goats.

    Yeah dude, if you ever go to Iraq you'll see the same thing. The unemployed Iraqi men beat/scare away the kids and take anything you give them.

    Your co-workers beat you to the ground, sometimes to death, to take candy from you?

    I was referring to the "unemployed foreign male coach potatoe" that I see at work all the time.

    They sound crazy, taking candy from kids infront of you is sort of weird. Usually bad guys try to hide their deeds.
    A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.
