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?

    **A moral question -- Think seriously**

    A moral question...

    Think seriously about how you would answer this question.

    I have a moral question for you. This is an imaginary situation, but I think it is fun to decide what one would do.

    The situation:
    You are in the Middle East, and there is a huge flood in progress. Many homes have been lost, water supplies compromised and structures destroyed. You are a photographer getting still photos for the CNN news service and are traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant scenes. You come across Osama Bin Laden who has been swept away by the floodwaters.
    He is barely hanging on to a tree limb and is about to go under. You can either put down your camera and save him, or take a Pulitzer Prize winning photograph of him as he loses his grip on the limb.
    So, here's the question and think carefully before you answer the question below:





























    Which lens would you use?
    "They will spend their nights dreaming of six-pack
    abs and a rock hard physique, little do they realize eventually we will reach
    our goal and they will be dreaming of the body we walk around with every
    dayÖonly then will they understand." -- Severed Ties

    "There are 6 billion people in this world, and I'm #1." -- me

    I would save him.

    I would tie him up and make sure he's secure, and then hand him over to the US for my.. what is it? $15,000,000 reward.

    They don't pay that much for pictures

    Yes, I understand this is a joke.. and I laughed my ass off. However, if this were real. I'd save his ass and get PAID!

    Twiz, think.
    Hes wanted DEAD or alive. you pick him up, drown him anyway, pushing his head under water and take his corpse back to the states for your 15 million reward.

    You are right! What was I thinking?!?

    Then again, i'd rather have him get killed in prison. I hear they like to "stuff you to death" in there.

    i would keep him alive as i do not want a fatwa agaisnt my head.
    then he can be buggered by bubba in prison. and have his beard shaven off as well. if he dies for his cuase he will be happy. if you do things like above to him, it will degrade and for some one like him will be worse than death.

    If that does not work

    sod it, torture him for the rest of his hopefully(very painful) long life.

    For mass murders i would recommend tourture. its a punishemnt worse than death.

    panoramic camera all the way

    if you "evil American" kill him, he'll die a martyr

    give him an international trial, so his supporters can see that he was sentenced to die by the whole freakin world

    It depends.
    If it is a particularly bright day, I might be likely to use my canon 100-400mm 2.8, as the light would have to be fairly bright for me to get a decent exposure(I'm expecting to be clinging to something, not much stability.) If I'm on a sturdy surface, I'd definitely use the 400.

    If its overvast, I'd probably use my 80mm 1.4. its a badass chunk of glass, it is. When I get close up, slap in the 28-105 canon and a macro filter to get wicked shots of his dialated pupils after I drudge his bloated ass out of the river.

    I'd probably use tmax 400 or Kodak gold 200, with red and haze filters, respectively.


    Was I not supposed to take this seriously?

    Hard question.I think it would be good to get a picture of the century. Then again rescue him and collect the reward money but if you rescued him do you think he would give up without a struggle and just the thought of touching him to help him from drowning just sickens me! I think take the picture of me drowning him would be much better.Best photo award and reward money.Yeah yeah!
    Stop contemplating! Just get on with it!

    I'd like to tie him up in a small, dark room. Beat him severely every hour with cane. Take a cigarette lighter to his testicles. Besides the mandatory starvation and sleep deprivation.

    After about six-eight weeks of this, I'd put him on international TV, radio, and the Internet to renounce his ties to terrorism, disband Al-Qaida, call on his brothers to lay down their arms and embrace America as kin.

    When the cameras died, I'd put a bullet in his gut and dump him off a cliff.
