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?

    Arnold Smokin' Dope

    I was at my brother's house today and they had some magazine, it wasn't People but it was pretty much the same thing. Any way, they were talking about all the skeletons Arnolds got in his closet and they brought up his admitting to steroids and they alluded to the clip of him smoking on Pumping Iron. I new that would come up but who cares. Why bring up dirt that's 15-20 years old? What bearing does that have on his running for Governor now? It's just stupid to hold people's pasts against them. At least when it's stuff like that.

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    When they can't debate his policies they have to sling mud. I agree though, it's too old to matter.

    No kidding. And if he owns up to it, who is gonna care? Maybe Clinton was under pressure to set a good example to kids vis-a-vis drug use, but he came across as a real weenie.

    I mean, come on, if you're gonna smoke with people, you're gonna inhale...

    I think it was a cigar he was smoking after the comp. After all Arnold has admitted to smoking a LOT of cigars and recently quit.

    What I got a kick out of was when he was asked on MTV if he had the chance to go back and inhale would he. And he said that he would. Hello?!? He might as well have said, if you have a joint here, right now, I'll take a hit. What an idiot. He was full of classic lines though.

    Nope. Think of the way people look at steroids. Can you imagine a politician encouraging the use of a drug 99% of the population assume does nothing but cause horrible side effects. That would kill anybodies chance for re-election. He might as well say, "Hey kids, lets get some dope. It'll be fun!"

    I've been long overdue to watch "Pumping Iron"... I'll have to pay special attention to the end.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    He will never endorse steriods. Its political suicide. Wouldn't surprise me if he says they were a mistake.

    Yeah, it kind of shows that he's a regular person.
    I don't understand the quote about him having skeletons in his closet, unless they're referring to his in-law relationship to Ted Kennedy.

    I'm positive Arnold wouldn't attempt anything involving steroids, but he might be sympathetic to prohormones. It's a tough call.
