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?

    Where Enron learned Economics

    Got this from a friend... -

    A concrete-truck driver moved to Texas and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

    The next day, the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, but I have some bad news. The donkey died in the back of the truck."

    "Well, then, just give me my money back." "Can't do that. I went and spent it already." "OK, then. Just unload the donkey."

    "What ya gonna do with him?"

    "I'm going to raffle him off."

    "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"

    "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."

    A month later the farmer met up with the readi-mix driver and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"

    "I raffled him off. I sold 500 hundred tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898."

    "Didn't anyone complain?"

    "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "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

    Enron is a bunch of morons. You would think they would have burned all those documents after shredding them, but the just left them in boxes, and now they have been found.

    I hear they have people putting the documents togeather like a puzzle.

    Very smart Enron, not.
