How do these people get on national television?
« on: November 27, 2009, 11:31:07 AM »
This is a joke but also a serious question. Watch:

Apparently self-control is not to blame. Rest assured people, you're not responsible for your actions ;) :-Sarcasm

I mean, there was stuff said on there that was correct but the whole premise of the discussion made me want to punch a baby.



And please no knocks against Fox News, even though they deserve it in this case.

Television isn't about entertainment. It's a shuttle for ads  :)

Getting rid of my television was the best thing I've ever done.

sigh... Exercise making you hungry isn't the problem. It's the lack of will power most people have to not eat bad food.

I'm with you Charles- TV is for squares!
This post was based off of my personal gatherings. Enjoy:)

and this is why i dont watch the news anymore..

i did a bit this morning and found out that everything thats been happening for the last few years is still happening... people are shooting their family, AMERICANS are dying in plane crashes in china or somewhere over there (but who cares about those other guys right?) and iraq still has nukes....

the only thing that changed is poor old tiger got into a crash, at 2 o clock in the morning outside of his mansion..... we are all worried about his physical health while i wonder why no one suspects drinking, seeing as HE crashed HIS car....at two in the morning....can anyone say attention whore??


yay, news sucks....

(sorry, i hate propaganda...)

The shadow overtake us, we are known
We're more than carbon and chemicals
Free will is ours and we can't let go
We are the image of the invisible"

I stopped it about halfway through.

Exercise makes you hungry?  GTFO!?  No way!  :-Sarcasm

Of COURSE exercise makes you hungry.  The point is that you need to act on that hunger differently.

So dumb.  Tell people whatever it is they need to hear to think they think its just fine to sit inside all day and eat bonbons....at least without exercise you want to eat less candy.

This is how I misparsed it.

I stopped it halfway in as well.  It made me want to kick small children across the room.

Americans as a whole have no self-control and no work ethic. Simple as that. They eat garbage and then ask "Why am I fat? I use my bowflex for ten minutes, 3 days a week after I eat my KFC!"

Americans certainly have a work ethic.  I think you are using the wrong word here.

Americans just have many many misconceptions about exercise and proper dieting.  In example, see the food pyramid.

I can't believe scientists just discovered that exercise makes you more hungry.
It's supposed to!!! Thats cuz exercise burns calories, which comes from your food! It's possibly the worst discovery of all time.

Well they shouldn't be eating so many calorie dense foods after they exercise.  After all of this I'm going to have go around HS hearing, "Exercise doesn't make you lose weight!" and subsequently be forced to bang my head against a locker.

Now that I think about it, I've actually found I'm not as hungry a while after exercising. I might be hungry but my appetite is less so I eat less.

My favorite part in this whole video was the woman in the red jacket while the "scientist" was talking ;D
Haha same.

If you insist.  America hasn't failed - there are just some misconceptions.  Do you think everyone has failed who has a misunderstanding?  If so, then you are a failure by your own definition because I am sure you have some misunderstandings on some things, also - we all do.

I don't know if I'm some strange exception, but I'm not really hungry after exercising.  I have no desire to eat.

America is a great country. Unfortunately the media is complete trash. If American people are naive enough to actually think that not exercising will help them lose weight... then I am worried for our country. And of course there will always be people who are lazy and believe everything they hear in any country, that is just how it is.

It really is sad to a news story like this run because you know that there will be people that take it to heart. This is my biggest gripe with 24 hour cable news. They need to fill up such a large amount of time and if that means using factually incorrect (or just plain stupid) news stories, then so be it.
