I am continuatlly amazed at how much I don't know and I gather theirs only two things I can guarantee in life...

1. There are many things I am never going to know!
2. Someday I am going to die!

I figure I better be content with that, one way or another! I am contented to have the opportunity to learn from people such as this while I have the chance!

I just want to offer up some appreciation for the level of respsect in the thread. It's easy enough to express a differing point of view with out running people down. It tends to keep things a discussion and not a blood bath.
So what you're saying is, this forum has no business being on the internet.

Actually, I also appreciate the level of discourse on this subject in this thread. Good read all around.

Sorry to all who went over to jazzercize.com looking for the forum, didn't mean to waste your time.

But wouldn't it be awesome if they jumped into the fray??

I can see the postings on their forum:
I'd be willing to put up one of our athletes against any other system's athletes, and I'd bet that after 10 minutes of high kicks, purple spandex, and songs from the catalog of the Pointer Sisters, any other athlete would run from the room, covering their ears screaming, "Make it stop!! Make it stop!!"

Again, sorry for wasting your time.

Hey that guy sounds familiar......

Default Excellent post Robb

Robb,

really enjoyed that. I was worried that this would descend into a slanging match and that was never my intention.

Now this is the trend you all need to be wary of:

I see Paris Hilton leading an army of transvestites to CrossFit HQ for the final apocalyptic showdown.

10 daiquiris and some Scissor Sisters for time anyone?

I keep it simple.....condense 2 things into 1 and say "I have no clue when I am going to die"....really free's up my day.

A naked gym? Right ON! Will someone hold the rope for me while I climb it?
