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?

    "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!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    Not sure how valid it is, but it's interesting.


    *******************************
    WHY MOST PEOPLE ARE RIGHT-HANDED

    Depending upon which estimate you believe, 6 to 16% of us are left-handed. On the surface, left-handers seem little different from right-handers. So why the highly skewed population? Why not 50% of each? Dr. Peter Irwin, at Sanddoz, Ltd., of Basle, Switzerland, has what is certain to be a controversial answer. He was led to his conclusion by a series of experiments with psychoactive drugs, performed in collaboration with Professor Max Fink, SUNY, Stony Brook. Left-handers, the study demonstrated, are much more sensitive to drugs that act upon the central nervous system. Irwin believes that this finding is consistent with the known association of left-handedness with epilepsy and learning disorders.


    "But perhaps the most exciting aspect of Irwin's hypothesis is that it makes evolutionary sense. 'A greater resistance of right-handers to centrally active substances, when Man was a forager and before he learned to identify non-toxic edibles, would have favoured righthanded survival. This might account for the skew in the present handedness distribution that is unique to humans.'"
    And why should left-handers be more sensitive to psychoactive substances? Irwin thinks they must absorb or metabolize them differently, or perhaps there is a difference in the blood-brain barrier that affects the transport of substances into the brain.

    (Grist, Liz; "Why Most People Are Right-Handed," New Scientist, 22, August 16, 1984.)

    A lefty did some research on how lefthandedness affected IQ. He was too dumb to get it up on the internet, though.

    I believe one of the largest reasons for serious and fatal accidents among left handed people is the improper use of products designed for right handed people.

    Somebody did a study looking at longevity and handedness. They picked a large group of Americans of known handedness (Quik Quiz: what was the group of people?) and compared age at death to right vs left handed. The righties barely outlived the southpaws (hint) as as group. Can't remember if the difference was statistically significant or not. In the conclusion the hypothesis was made that the difference might be due to accidents- lefties living in a right-handed world.

    handedness doesn't determine intelligence. however, it is determined from what side ur heart leans towards, whcih i don't think is genetic, cuz i have twin friends, who one of em is left handed, the other, rite.
