The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Attacks in London

    Just came out of a meeting to be told of several attacks in London..

    Not sure who is responsible yet, but there have been several explosions...

    I hope everything is ok for you over there Dan... I'm sure getting home will be interesting as I learned that almost no one drives into the downtown core in London...

    Please keep us updated...

    Whenever there's another incident like this I remember exactly what it was like on September 11th 4 years ago when I was being bored in math class and saw something out in the distance which I thought was a mistake on my senses' behalf. Shortly thereafter, it happened again....and we all know the rest.

    It's really terrible that people would do this. And as *******-ish as it sounds....it's not all that bad that there were only two casualties.

    Shocked, but expected something would happen eventually.

    Not much you can say really.

    Stuff like this pisses me off. And to think its all because of religion...
    Its so ironic that while there are being talks about helping people we have these mother****ers killing innocent victims, seriously how can they possibly think they are doing this for the good of Allah?

    Actually the unofficial figure (from a strong source) is 45. 7 dead on the bus alone. With 150 seriously injured - it could easily rise.

    OMG, they bombed the tube station I used to use every day while I was a student there! Needless to say I think my college here in the US will probably reconsider its study abroad program in London for this coming fall.

    And by doing so they would aid the terrorists. Fear is their only weapon.

    London and everyone in it are in my thoughts. I remember 9/11 like it was yesterday- I feel for you guys (Londoners) in more ways that I can say.

    Stay safe over there-I guess nobody is really safe.

    Fear is not their only weapon. Fear didn't kill 47 people on a bus. When stuff like this happens in other countries I still can't believe we get **** from other countries for trying to kill these bastards.

    Dan, and others in the area just take care and avoid public areas where possible if you can. I'd say this would be a good idea for the entire duration of the summit.

    Stay on the ****ing topic as well. It amazes me how much stupidity and ignorance there is out there that can't distinguish between Iraq and all this terrorism.

    I would imagine that's true for millions of people. I just hope all those we all know living in London are OK.

    People wonder why I call myself Mr. T. One dude asked, 'does the T stand for tough?' I said no. Another dude asked if the T stands for my last name, Tureaud. No it does not. The 'T' in Mr. T stands for tuna. T loves tuna.

    My thoughts are with England today. Just goes to show we're all in this together. Hopefully now some of those protesters will realize the terrorists hate them as well as the English that side with us and quit decrying their gov. at every turn.
