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?

    Halloween

    It's not even 7 o'clock and the bratty kids are already pissing me off. Here's hoping that by 2010, trick-or-treating is dead.

    It's not the young, well behaved kids I have a problem with. It's the disrespectful brats in the 11-15 year old age group who ring the doorbell 5 times, don't say "thank you," and spray silly string all around the neighborhood.

    Or ring the doorbell like 50 times in 5 seconds then run into the bushes and keep repeating it. :P

    Last Halloween, some jackass just held the doorbell down on my neighbor's door until it just fried out.

    I just got off the phone with my grandmother, and she said some teenage punks just smashed a pumpkin in their lawn.

    I'm figuring I'll wait outside with the ole double barrel.

    we had four kids stop and that was it, what a bad turn out.
    "No maybe I can't win, maybe the only thing I can do is take everything he's got. But to beat me, he's gonna have to kill me, and to kill me, he's gonna have to have the heart to stand in front of me, and to do that, he's gotta be willing to die himself." Rocky 4
    " You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!" Rocky

    I hate halloween.

    It's not a real holliday where I'm from, and it pisses me off to no end when some little dip****s keep knocking on my door, demanding candy. Last I year I went nuts and told this little kid that there is no halloween tradition in norway and that if he knocked on my door again, I'd mutilate his body.

    ok, so my daughter and I just got back from trick or treating. quick rant. who and why do people give out crappy little sour candies, gum, and suckers. just stick to what kids(and me) want to bring home, candy bars, dots, anything reeses, and the old fashion orange and brown wrapped mystery peanut buttery taffy crap.

    kids were pretty respectful here. plus I have a rep as "the big mean guy" even though i don't know hardly anyone.

    I dunno, not a whole lot of action going on here. Maybe 3 or 4 groups of kids.

    No firecrackers or fireworks either.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
