The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    You guys are a riot. But why do I also have the feeling it wouldn't be all that strange to see a mass cult suicide done somewhere on this date somewhere in the world? Hey if the passing by of a comet is enough...

    I'll just, uh, hold on to everyone's stuff while they travel on forward to the afterlife. Yep I'll take that stuff right off their hands.

    You're putting the wrong inflection on my statement. It was not meant to be self-pitying, it was intended to be malicious.

    Yup. People have read too much into it. If I remember right, to the Mayans it's the "end of an age". Just like one trip around the sun is a year, an "age" is one trip around the galaxy. It's more like when your odometer flips over from 99999.9 to 0. I also think they say an age comes and goes with lots of turmoil. And it isn't always bad, it could be something good, like enlightenment of some sort. It depends on us(people as a whole).

    The thing I find fascinating is how the hell they came up with a calander so damn accurate(time wise) in the first place. They had the stars, the seasons, and whatever recorded history they may have had, and came up with a calander that's apparently way more accurate than the one we use. It supposedly predicts things(in a broad sense) well too, cause it's based a lot on the rythms and cycles of nature. Cool s**t I tell ya'.

    Well.... I get one crack at the Olympics don't I?
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Actually, I have an X-Files book from the late 90s with a similar situation

    Besides the ""ALiens Gave Us The Great Civs" Theory has been around since even before Stargate

    Is it just me or does there seem to be a lot of programs on tv dealing with this situation right now? I'm not sure if it's because I saw this thread and noticed it more or if there is just tons of shows on discovery/history channels about it. Talking about the sun is going to be at the center of the galaxy and could possibly reverse the earth's magnetic poles? That would mess us up real good.

    Meh, I'm still waiting for that new particle accelerator to open a black hole and suck us in. Quantum sciences ftmfw.

    The sun becoming the center of the galaxy? It would have to start moving very fast towards the center for that to happen!

    That's bull... I have been watching and reading nostradamus stuff since I was a kid and this whole thing about him predicting 2012 only cropped up within the last two years, not coincidentally, when the 2012 fad started to catch fire.
    Yes, I've heard about the mayan 2012 calandar thing before a few years ago, but it was only a little thing up until a few years ago, until people started trying to put Sitchin's Nibiru thing as of late, and now suddenly everyone is re-interpreting quatranes from nostradamus to collaborate. It's all a bunch of hooey

    its just another load of crap made up to keep us entertained and occupied, and to scare the fearful into giving up what they own.
    just watch now that its getting closer there will be alot of crap in the media about it. fear is a powerful tool. i see alot of things about it among other bs on the history channel. nobody knows when the world will end.

    if the Apocalypse does happen on 2012, i will eat my hat.

    im just gonna make my own firework that year, just to get their hopes up, and to see them say "Ha i told you!!" to then be utterly disappointed.
    and if the Apocalypse does actually happen i will run up to god and smack him in the face and say "that's for creating cauliflower, stinging nettles and the cast of sex and the city"
