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?

    My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas

    I wonder what mnemonic they will use now to teach kids the planets? It really doesn't make sense anymore if you just take off the word "Pizzas".

    Even if you did, would it matter? You can call Hawaii a state or call it an island but either way you're still going to the same overpriced Mecca of tourism.

    I'm in favor of the decision, that's just one less styrofoam ball I will have to help paint when my children reach the third grade. I say we go back to the theory of the sun and moon revolving around the Earth and end this planet nonsense altogether.

    Hawaii is both a state and an island obviously.

    I wonder if 2,500 "highly educated" astronomers gave any thought to the fact that they've now got a "dwarf" planet named "Pluto."

    If they had 7 dwarf planets, would they be Happy, Dopey, etc?

    Is Pluto gonna get a rename soon?

    Maybe, in an effort to be more PC we should officially refer to them as "little planets."
