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?

    What's a blizzard? Three times in the last 20 years, sparse snow flakes have fallen and immediately turned to water upon hitting the pavement here.

    Here's a pic from March '06 out at Saguaro Lake. Not technically snow in the Valley, but definitely a rare sight!



    By the way, its 5:45 pm here and its still 84 degrees!

    Yeah, I live in AJ at the moment, and believe it or not, a couple weeks ago one night it dropped real cold and snowed on the superstitions, and I'm close to them. I'm less than 20 miles south of Canyon Lake, so I'm close to Four Peaks, which is what is covered in snow in your picture.

    Which year was it when it snowed in Tempe? It was in the last 3 years.

    You don't need snow for people to drive like idiots. Even a light dusting makes the roads total mayhem, even in a winter climate.

    I know how you feel.

    People in minnesota drive like they've never driven in snow before. I don't know how many times I've been tempted to get out of my car and stab someone because they were coming within inches of my car at everystop sign yet they refuse to drive more than 5 feet behind me.

    Oddly enough, not a single flake here in OH. Its just freezing cold is all. 4 days ago it was 55. Right now I think it's around 12.

    I grew up in MI so I was used to getting 6-8" and it not being a huge deal. We'd maybe have one or two snow days a year.

    Down here in southern OH, if we get 4" everything shuts down. We got around 6" once this winter and I'll admit, things were a lousy mess. You'd have thought we'd have gotten a blizzard because down here they don't have half the snow removal system and the plow trucks are much smaller than the ones in MI. Whereas in MI, they get the snow taken care of right away so it doesn't seem like a big deal because the roads are all cleaned up.

    Heck, you should see people here. Even city buses will line up about six inches behind you at a stoplight and woe betide you if you are one second late from moving when it turns green.

    You'd be leaving bodies lying here left, right and center...

    I know, don't you just hate it when classes are canceled and you get to sleep an extra four hours?

    That crap must have just blown right by us. Those storms wreaked havoc on my work day, without ever touching ground here in WV. I'd usually wish it had hit here, but we've had quite enough snow already this winter. They have almost no snow removal in my city (second largest city in the state, no less), and it's hell getting around town for as long as it stays cold-enough to keep it on the ground. It's ridiculous.

    No, I hate when class is canceled and so my building is closed and I can't do the work I need to do, that needs to be done by Wednesday morning.
