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?

    I liked mr rogers. I had to burst out laughing when biguglyogre talked about those puppets. Man i hated those things..scarey creepy king friday and prince tuesday. Mr dressups puppets were weird too.

    And so it begins,
    My eyes wide, yet I see only darkness.
    The world is mine, yet it crumbles with my touch.

    All things must end they say;
    to end before beginning?
    Tis the sadest loss of all.

    RIP, he put on a good show for a long time.

    As long as my all time favourite tv personality, Bob Barker remains alive, I will remain sane. Although, personally I think he will live forever, or be frozen and unfrozen when there is a cure.

    I watched Mr. Dressup the most though, he was ace.

    LOL @ Berserker


    I was always kinda creeped out by Mr. Rogers. There are plenty of worse shows a kid could watch than his, but I just thought it was too damn wierd. Sad to hear he died though.

    Yeah, I liked those, but Lizzie's right about those big headed puppets being kind of scary. Poor Mr. Rogers...

    I liked Mr. Dressup as well...and Read-a-long and The Polka Dot Door and all those shows from my childhood...

    That is bad news. The children of the world just suffered a terrible loss. I don't remember watching much when I was growing up, but I do remember the show that he interviewed Lou Ferrigno in his trailer on the set of "The Incredible Hulk" while they were applying all the green makeup.

    I did hear that they will still play old episodes of Mr. Rogers. So atleast his legacy will live on.

    If you start out by disbelieving every story like that you hear, and supplement that with checking out places like snopes.com, you'll come out ahead.

    It truly is sad when a man like this passes away. As a convicted child molester, I don't have a living idol anymore. He taught me everything I knew, from using puppets and funny voices to charm children, to taking them to factories to show them how cookies or other treats were made... And then grinding their bodies in with the cornmeal so that the evidence was lost.. It is a sad day..

    Heh. But in all seriousness, it's like a part of my childhood has died. Everyday I grow older and it's harder and harder to hold on to my youth (which is why I hold on to other little boys). Something like this makes me sad.

    I've checked multiple sources on it. I'll look around some more. I may be wrong.

    They said the same thing about John Denver.

    "Fred Rogers got his start in television through his musical background when, after earning a bachelor's degree in music composition in 1951, he was hired by NBC television in New York to serve as an assistant producer (and later as a floor director) for several of the music-variety type programs (The Voice of Firestone, The Lucky Strike Hit Parade, The Kate Smith Hour) prevalent on TV in the early 1950s. A few years later, he returned to his hometown area to develop programming for WQED in Pittsburgh, the nation's first community-sponsored educational television station. One of the first programs he developed for WQED was The Children's Corner, which contained many of the elements and characters Fred Rogers would incorporate into his own show when he made his on-camera debut as host of Misterogers for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1963. "

    Not only did Fred Rogers never serve in the military, there are no gaps in his career when he could conceivably have served in the military -- he went straight into college after high school, he moved directly into TV work after graduating college, and his breaks from television work were devoted to attending the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary (he was ordained as a Presbyterian minister in 1963) and the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Child Development. Moreover, Fred Rogers was born in 1928 and was therefore far too old for an active combat position in the Vietnam War.

    The birthdate alone would have clinched it for me. He'd have been what, 42 years old in 1970? You don't see too many 40+ year old dudes being assigned to sniper duty, let alone any combat trade.

    I heard it on the radio and read an article about it somewhere. It's not like some guy told me it and I instantly believed it. BTW, thanks for the spelling correction, it looks like you have your work cut out for you.
