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?

    I heard about that but thought it was something from The Onion or something. I love sports but I can't understand how someone can get THAT caught up in their team winning or losing. It's not like we're playing for the team. I'm glad that guy cut his testicles off so he can't further contaminate the gene pool with his stupidity. lol

    To add. the chance of wales winning before the game were pretty low. The chance of dying from smoking are much higher and lots of people do.

    that being said, it a bet i would have not seriously meant.

    He was drunk and anything can happen on a tuesday night. Or whenever that happened. Hey look at it this way, in S.A. a soccer game is the equivalent of an all out riot + brawl, at least here he only stopped the contamination of stupidity in the well of humanity.
