Someone sent me this through an email, I find it highly inspiring! LoL. Have fun!


Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain?

Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO . Cocoa beans! Another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And remember:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, What a Ride"

The worries of Malaysia Non-muslim

Religion goes with compassion
By: (Tue, 03 Jan 2006)

Race and religion are two subjects that tend to be extremely touchy. So it is hardly surprising that the country's laws place strong restrictions on their open discussion.

Wrongly handled, these contentious issues can inflame public opinion, with serious consequences for the nation's peace and stability.

The mass media have been mindful of these points for a long time and would rather leave these issues untouched than allow the remarkable tolerance that has been the hallmark of our society to be disturbed in any way.

In addition to the constitutional caveats on questions touching on these two subjects, there are also laws against sedition, and various other pieces of preventive legislation that are meant to

pre-empt the airing of ill-considered opinions that may reverberate through our communities. So there are many reasons why we should not discuss the case of the late commando L/Kpl M. Moorthy, whose widow Kaliammal Sinnasamy is questioning the legality of his conversion to Islam, despite the Syariah Court ruling that it is valid.

In addition, it would be prejudicial to the cause of justice to discuss the High Court ruling, which Kaliammal is appealing, that it has no jurisdiction over the case, since the Syariah Court has accepted Moorthy's conversion.

The point that needs to be made however is far removed from any legal issue. Rather, it concerns the social environment in which we live and how issues that involve inter-communal relations are handled.

For all our sakes, and the harmonious development of our society, we must turn away from narrow, hardline approaches that rob the spirit from the letter of our respective scriptures, leaving us with empty dogma.

Such attitudes, ironically, discredit the spirit of universality and compassion that draw humanity to seek solace in religion.

To walk in the path shown by the leaders of the world's great religions, we should evoke a sense of humility in ourselves, so that what we believe to be correct may be in tune with the wisdom of our religions.

In this spirit, we hope that the members of Moorthy's family can come to terms with the circumstances that they have suddenly found themselves in.

And for the officials on whose shoulders rest the public's confidence in the justice and compassion of our religious institutions, we hope that their judgment reflects as far as humanly possible the unfathomable will of the Almighty.
