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?

    The Others

    If you like having the crap scared out of you, then run, don't walk to your nearest cinema to watch "The Others" starring Nicole Kidman. I went to see this last night with a couple of friends, and found the suspense so rivoting, with a build up of fear so compelling - I actually found myself putting my arms down at my sides to make sure that when I jumped in horror I would not accidentally gouge myself with my fingernails...

    "The Others" is one of the best scary movies I have seen - better than "The Shining" - on par with "The Exorcist". Nicole Kidman, who I have never been a fan of, puts in a tremendous performance, and the two kids who play her children are outstanding.

    Don't let anyone spoil this movie for you - just know that it is about a woman living with her two children in a large mansion in the mid 1940's.

    Be warned: don't expect a good nights sleep after watching it, though...

    Actually, Bam, you are right - that fingernail comment was pretty faggy... How about,

    "The tension was so taut that I feared I would hit myself in the balls when jumping in fear..."

    or, "The tension was so intense, that I had to sit on my hands in fear of bashing the puny little dude on my right with an inadvertant jerk of surprise..."

    Hehe - maybe I should leave the movie reviews to the fat guy on T.V....

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Craig, you're the third person now who has recommended that movie for a good scare...I'm not a Nicole Kidman fan either, but I love a good horror movie.

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.
