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?

    True story, USA vs Brits :)

    The following is the transcript of an ACTUAL radio
    conversation in October 1995, between a US Navy ship off
    the coast of England, and the British authorities. The
    transcript was released by the MoD on 10/10/95.

    BRITS: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South,
    to avoid a collision.

    AMERICANS: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to
    the North, to avoid a collision

    BRITS: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15
    degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    AMERICANS: This is the Captain of US Navy ship. I say
    again, divert YOUR course.

    BRITS: Negative. I say again. You will have to divert
    your course.

    AMERICANS: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN. THE
    SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET.
    WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS,
    AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE
    YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH. THAT'S 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR
    COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY
    OF THIS SHIP.

    BRITS: We are a lighthouse. **** off.

    Cute story, which I FIRST enjoyed about ten years ago. And definitely not true. Great joke though.
