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?

    7-year-old gets stuck in stuffed animal game machine

    http://www.chippewa.com/articles/200...news/news3.txt







    SHEBOYGAN (AP) -- A 7-year-old boy had to be rescued with the help of a locksmith Saturday after crawling into a supermarket's stuffed animal game machine while his father talked on the telephone.

    "He was sitting right in there with the stuffed animals," said Shift Commander Mark Zittel of the Sheboygan Fire Department.

    He said the boy, whose name was not released because he is a minor, crawled through about an 8-inch-by-10-inch opening to get into the glass enclosure via a chute where the toys come out, but when he tried to get back out his way was blocked.

    The stuffed animals are prizes that can be hooked by players with a crane-like device.

    "His dad was three feet away at a pay phone," Zittel said. "He was talking on the phone and he said the next thing he turned around and the kid was in the thing."

    He said the boy stayed calm and didn't panic as firefighters responded to the Piggly Wiggly store and then moved the game machine to the back of the store and got a locksmith to open the main loading door. The process took about an hour.

    "There was no panic," Zittel said. "We could have broke the glass if there was an emergency."

    The boy was not injured or traumatized but desperately had to go to the bathroom, he said.

    But rescuers hadn't figured out how the boy was able to crawl into the game, or why no one in the store's busy lobby spotted him and stopped him before he got inside.

    That's awesome. He could have peed on a stuffed animal though. I'm sure it would have absorbed most of the urine.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    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

    They should have tried getting him out with the mechanical claw. I bet that would have freaked him out.

    Yeah but maybe he had to do a #2, that would have been a prize to keep in the machine though...

    Thats funny.

    You know, the standard test for failure of a protective shield or barrier is whether or not you can create an 8x8 inch opening in it, which is the size that a child or very small person can fit through. I remember watching an episode of 'Beyond 2000' where they were testing this bulletproof glass type material and they were totally unable to breach it.

    They should have my mom talk to the glass for about 20 minutes.




    So what was that article about?

    I think they should have sealed the machine off and suffocated the little bastard. And taken his obviously attentive parents to prison and executed them.

    Seriously, though, if you have some free time and want to amaze yourself at how horrible 99% of parents are, try this:

    Go to the mall and step inside either a ladies' clothing store or a kids clothing store. Find a comfortable rack to lean against, and just stand and watch. I did this a couple weeks back while my friend was shopping.

    First case. There's a stroller in an aisle, with nobody around. The kid inside must have been 2 at the oldest. He proceeds to climb out of the stroller, falls to the floor and starts crying. This kids mother comes from the far back end of the store and gets mad because her unattended 2 year old got bored and climbed out of his stroller and fell. She sits him back down, heads off and comes back with another boy who is probably 6 and says, "You watch your little brother." Holy ****. He's 6 and HE'S IN CHARGE?

    Meanwhile, the boss gets occupied discovering Mr. Winky and the 2 year old starts climbing out of the stroller again. This time he gets out but doesn't fall much so he doesn't cry. He starts to make a run for it when suddenly a little girl, maybe 4, rounds the nearest rack. They stop and stare at each other for a minute and then they both sit down on the floor and start playing with dust on the floor or something. But wait, where the hell did this girl come from and where the hell is HER parent(s)?

    I start looking around, because obviously this 4 year old girl isn't at the mall by herself (I hoped). The first Mom comes back after what was probably another 10 minutes, takes a quick glance at her 2 year old on the floor with the girl and her 6 year old standing in the aisle groping Mr. Winky, and turns and heads back to the other side of the store.

    Now here is the real kicker. This lady walks into the store, fingers through some racks, checks her watch, fingers through some more stuff and happens to stumble into the 4 year old girl. She says, "Are you behaving yourself?" The girl nods and the Mom promptly walks back out of the store into the mall!

    It's just amazing. But it makes it much less shocking to see a 7 year old locked in a vending machine after observing **** like I saw during the holidays.

    You really can't. We're getting into (in America at least) the 3rd and 4th generation of parents who either don't know how or don't want to parent. I think I have a good grasp on being a parent because I know I had strong parents. But if I had weak parents, I wouldn't have the precedent set before me on how to be a parent. And likewise my children won't either.

    It's a real nasty cycle. I don't have any answers for it, either.

    If someone got the kid with the claws while he's in the machine, would they get to keep him?

    Chris Mason is my master.....

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.
