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?

    Why would you want to eat acorns if there is perfectly normal food more easily accessible?

    If you want to be frugal, you could always become "freegan"

    I knew a guy who's whole family ate acorns. They were pretty weird though. The kids went barefoot most of the year and only wore shoes when it got cold. The kids also referred to their parents as Ma and Pa. That was funnier than them eating acorns to me, the only time I'd heard about people calling their parents Ma and Pa was in books I'd read about hillbillies... that's some Little House on the Prairie type s##t... I felt sorry for the guy though. People picked on him and called him "Ratboy"... Kids can be cruel but that's another story entirely....

    When the United States reaches the stage of civil unrest, Acorns are the best option. I have the military survival handbook and recipe's on how to prepare and cook road kill. And lots of acorn recipes: acorn meal, bread e.t.c. If worst comes to worse.. I'm ready.

    I remember reading this for the first time, I was sitting in the grad library and could not stop myself from laughing. It was so bad I had to walk to the bathroom so I could calm down, lol.

    Acorns seem to work for squirrels, so maybe? The only problem is I don't recall ever seeing any 250 pound powerlifting squirrels around......if I had I'd run like crazy.

    HAHA; this thread is too funny for this site. It should be on a comedy forum. You're all botards in the best sense, kudos.

    However; it really ticks me off how young people act like they're new age rebels, but they talk like 1920's conformist pigs. Like ''If the government, big buisnesses, local molestors aren't doing it; WHY WOULD YOU!?! Like OMGZERS''. Hey; if I grabbed some random weed out of my backyard, blended it into a paste with some of my butthairs, and it became a popular treat and a respected source of many nutrients (like crap molecules, yum); would you eat it and say it's Gods grand rainbow fart design? Just because people do things, it doesn't make them good. People smoke. They jerk off upside down while choking themselves. Human beings aren't really all that bright.

    Carp has incredible amounts of protien compared to other fish. I hear it's gross and is a bottom feeder. Most people won't eat it. You could, but most don't. Because most don't, would eating it be stupid? Is the opposite of conforimty ignorance? Especially in a totalitarion regime that we have. Kids these days. Look also at what cows eat (and guess what geniuses; it isn't grass); alfalfa. Alfalfa has an incredible nutritional profile, and if you can find some growing in a field for free, pick it. Most people wouldn't eat it, but don't crap on the people that will take an Afalfa supplement. Stop sucking uncle sams teat you emos! Lay off the different peeps around you (or as those dopes on lost so unintelligently call them: The Others), HAHA.

    And while we're on the cow subject: The March 25, 2002 issue of Hoard's Dairyman (the dairy farmers magazine) reveals a mixed menu of gourmet foods in a dairy cow's diet, including chicken feathers, blood, pork, fish, and soybeans. Just thought you might want to know that. *GAGS*

    I read Detard's post in this thread - http://www.wannabebig.com/forums/sho...ighlight=acorn

    So I did a search for "acorn" to see what was so funny. Enjoy, all you who missed it the first time.

    If you seriously want to collect a "free nut" from your backyard then collect those pinecones.

    This delicate and buttery nut, which contains the highest amount of protein of all nuts and seeds, comes in several varieties
