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?

    Only you can prevent forest fires...


    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesnít realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    Parables and Portraits, Stephen Mitchell

    THAT WAS THE FUNNIEST DAMN THING I HAVE SEEN IN MONTHS!!!!!!!!
    My stomach is killing me from laughing.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    Bonfires are so cool; clearly that one was not planned well though

    I wanna hear the explosion and the screaming. Not the Wallflowers. GEH.I am just playing the part when he lights it and takes off running over and over; I can't stop on my own.

    Yeah, that wasn't the best musical selection. Something harder probably would have been better.

    What the hell were they lighting that thing up for anyway?

    Ah. This needs to be shown in middle schools as the number 1 reason you should pour your gasoline on the bonfire all at once, very quickly, before it begins to evaporate.
