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?

    You Guys See The Star Wars Kid Video?

    Man that is so funny. I laughed so hard. Then I saw the SWK 2.0 Video and was almost in tears. Someone was nice enough to make his video look awesome.

    It is funny as hell, but I get to wonder. It probably wasn't too funny for that kid when it first got out. Now he is famous around the world for being a dumbass on video. It's kinda bitter-sweet.

    I saw a report on french telivision, that kid is from Quebec, he's "special" and he was devasted when he learned that video was all over the net. It was actually th emost downloaded thing on the net I believe at the time. There are organizations that have been made to raise money to compensate the kid hehe.

    That is some heavy stuff. Well he should not feel so bad, I believe most of us are not special and have done stuff like that if not worse (I realize our stuff was not posted all over the net though). God knows I have. I was busting out man. I saw the first clip, then the second one and I was in stitches. I also saw the Clone Wars, Terminator, 3D, Braveheart and Reloaded.

    I agree, I feel bad for the kid if it devastates him, but it's still funny as hell. He shouldn't take it so seriously, it would still be funny if it was one of us doing it, but I guess for a special person, being teased must be worse.

    "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!"

    Maki hating Ninjas = impotent emotion with no consequences
