The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Giving something back :)

    I have been here for like 1,5-2years now, and it has been great, Ive learned more than I could think of, I have even met Fangel in person and he is a great guy.


    Norwegian Culture, do you want to ask anything about norway, our landscape, our culture or history, like what did the vikings really do, what did norway do under WWII, just anything, ask and I will answer.
    A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.

    You must be thinking of Sven, well, he is very strong and he trains alot outside in cold air, but I think its more of a lucky break, The scandinavians arent stronger than anyother nations, so I will have to just answer lucky break, hehe.

    Actually I think discovery had a program were they said that the polynesians and the maorians are most muscular from the natures side.

    Norweigens have horseshoe's up their butt.

    Lots of oil, beautiful landscapes with Fjiords where every 360 degree view could be an ansel adams print, generally peace loving and tolerant people.

    How'd you get so lucky

    Tryska - Lutefisk tastes like something is rotten, and old, it smells horrible, but it has this aroma and you have to drink alot of norwegian hard potato liquer to be able to eat it.

    DoubleGulp - Fishing is great, we have alot of salmon and trout and really quiet peacefull rivers, its really awesome in the summertime, me and some friends usually go up in the mountains and fish all the night and just talk about stuff and really have total harmony.

    We have a king, his name is King Harald, he is a bit of a sleepy character, our prime minister is a priest who rules after the bible.

    The guy who you might be referring to "saving the world" was a norwegian guy who got really pissed at this german boat in habor in his town, and he swam out and put a bomb on the ship and he swam back, and then the ship blew up, apparently, there was some really important stuff in there.

    Rock, did you know you write with a Norweigen accent?

    My question: If I vacationed in Norway for a week what's the best time of year and where's the best place to stay? Actually I want to know from your point of view not what you think an American tourist would want. Where would you spend a week on holiday and when?

    Thanks Rock. Seriously how can I find out more about this place, such as accomatations and transportation? I'm planning to visit The Continent in 2004, I was thinking Rome/Florence but you just put Norway in the running.
