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?

    Long Island Driving Rules

    I just got this as an email, and i know many of you are Long Islanders so I share, the Long Island Driving Rules.

    1. A right-lane construction closure is just a game to see how many people can cut in line by passing you on the right as you sit in the left lane waiting for the same drivers to squeeze their way back in before hitting the orange construction barrels.

    2. Turn signals will give away your next move. A real Long Island driver never uses them. Use of them in Massapequa may be illegal.

    3. Under no circumstances should you leave a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, or the space will be filled in by somebody else putting you in an even more dangerous situation.

    4. Crossing two or more lanes in a single lane-change is considered "going with the flow."

    5. The faster you drive through a red light, the smaller the chance you have of getting hit.

    6. Never get in the way of an older car that needs extensive bodywork.

    7. Braking is to be done as hard and late as possible to ensure that your ABS kicks in, giving a nice, relaxing foot massage as the brake pedal pulsates. For those of you without ABS, it's a chance to stretch your legs.

    8. Construction signs warn you about road closures immediately after you pass the last exit before the backup.

    9. Electronic traffic warning signs are not there to provide useful information. They are only there to make Long Island look high-tech, and to distract you from seeing the state police radar car parked on the median.

    10. Never pass on the left when you can pass on the right.

    11. Speed limits are arbitrary figures, given only as suggestions, and are apparently not enforceable during rush hour.

    12. Just because you're in the left lane and have no room to speed up or move over doesn't mean that a Long Island driver flashing his high beams behind you doesn't think he can go faster in your spot.

    13. Always slow down and rubberneck when you see an accident, or even if someone is just changing a tire.

    14. Throwing litter on the roads adds color to the landscape and gives Adopt-a-Highway crews something to clean up.

    15. It is assumed that state police cars passing at high speed may be followed in the event you need to make up a few minutes on your way to work, or the beach.

    16. Learn to swerve abruptly. Long Island is the home of high-speed slalom driving thanks to potholes.

    17. It is traditional in Long Island to honk your horn at cars that don't move the instant the light changes.

    18. Seeking eye contact with another driver revokes your right of way, except in Garden City where it acts as an invitation to duel or play chicken.

    19. Never take a green light at face value. Always look right and left before proceeding. In Long Island it is common to stop and then decide which direction to turn.

    20. Remember that the goal of every Long Island driver is to get there first, by whatever means necessary.

    21. Real Long Island female drivers can put on pantyhose, apply eye makeup, and balance the checkbook at seventy- five miles per hour during a snowstorm in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

    22. Real Long Island male drivers can remove pantyhose and a bra at seventy-five miles per hour in bumper-to-bumper traffic during daylight hours (who would want to at night?).

    23. Heavy snow, ice, fog, and rain are no reasons to change any of the previously listed rules. These weather conditions are God's way of ensuring a natural selection process for body shops, junkyards, and new vehicle sales.

    I never use my blinker, becuase if the driver in the lane next to see my blink they speed up not to let you in.

    Durring the summer I was drving down souther pky at rush hour. When all of a sudden traffic slowed down to about 20 miles an hour. Everyone was looking over at a car on the side of the road, I was wodnering what happened? Then I see it a 20ish girl bending over in tight pants to change her tire. My gf and I started cracking up, I would have stopped to help...
