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?

    Favorite Seinfeld Episode

    I tried looking at the search engine and was surprised nobody asked this.

    Which is your favorite?

    Where Kramer gets the pimp coat from that play, Joseph something rather.

    Where Elaine's boss makes the speech and he ends up mimicking Hitler.

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "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!"

    WAY too many, pretty much every episode has SOMETHING that is hilarious in it.
    The gay guys are damn funny, in the soup Nazi episode when they steal the Armoire from Kramer.
    Gay guys in the AIDS walk when Kramer doesnt wear "the ribbon."
    Kramer as a Calvin Klein model.
    Kramer working for free, and getting fired...

    Damn you now Ill be thinking bout Seinfeld all day and not get any work done Thats a big change from a normal day...

    the episode where Kramer and George's dad get to talking and Kramer invent's "the Bro", a "male support undergarment"

    the scene where George's mom walks in while Kramer is helping his dad get "the Bro" on, with latin dance music in the background, is one of the classic Seinfeld moments


    the episode where Elaine embarasses herself at the office party with her lame dancing and Jerry has to bootleg films for Kramer's creepy friend is a close second in my book

    Kramer beating the crap out of those kids in his Karate class and eventually getting his own ass kicked was hilarious!

    I liked the scrunchie episode because something very similar happened to me.

    The one where Kramer and Newman rent the box truck and buy tons of soda to return the bottles to Maine so they can get $.10 back instead of $.05.

    I think it was Maine?

    worst show ever. They react to situations in ways no sane person would, overcomplicate things. And since no sane person can relate to their behavior it's just annoying not funny.
