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?

    Im against capital punishment I think it's stupid and only brings us to his level.
    I am SO glad I'm female.
    Seriously - I had NO IDEA it was this complicated.
    I just tell my husband he makes love like a God, feed him a steak, and I'm done for the day. Super easy.

    Seems like a horribly small sentence. If only we could somehow kill him 148 times over.

    Since we can't hanging is as good as anything. He needs to leave this earth so he doesnt cause anymore harm. Now god can judge him and send him where he belongs.

    Iraq happened to schedule the verdict two days before an American election! Amazing!

    They should have just shot him in the spider hole.

    I won't believe he's dead unless there's footage on the hanging. They should broadcast this live with a parental warning. This will be a happy day.

    Doesn't affect me regarding the election in any way. But the point of my post wasn't regarding the elections. However, things like this do tend to happen around election time.

    I don't think that would ever happen, sorry to say but a hanging is extremely gruesome...we're talking broken neck, blue face, twitching. It'd be too much to be broadcast here...I'm sure it'll be filmed some how or another, maybe put on the internet?

    If they showed that terrorist beheading of an American, I think they would show the hanging as well. Sick ****.

    You forgot about the 600,000 or so Iraqis.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Didn't Saddam used to put people through meat grinders? (while they were still very conscious)

    And the trillion dollars we have spent.

    Why would you even mention money? Life is sacred and more important than any amount of money.

    Yeah, we shouldn't be concerned about a trillion dollars.

    Actually, you can quite accurately figure out the value of a life. Actuaries have done this for a few hundred years now.

    Military lives are quite precisely values, and the government has set up a number of different plans. The death gratuity is now $100,000, tax free in addition to 200,000-400,000 in available insurance. So, a dead American service member is worth about $500,000.

    Of course, the opportunity cost of the trillion dollars we have spent on war could probably vaccinate and provide clean water to the whole continent of Africa, saving hundreds of thousands or millions of lives.

    But I guess none of this matters because lives are more important than money.

    I wish they'd just killed him and made it look like a suicide. There's no glory in suicide if you don't take anyone with you, I don't imagine, so it would have cut the balls off of the factions that want to see him as a martyr. As it stands - if he goes to the gallows he goes proclaiming that he is still the rightful president of Iraq, and urging his followers to never give up until they've driven the invaders from their land, and overthrown the imposter government.
