Or maybe those who don't think he's crazy could add their opinions?

Is there anyone (here) who doesn't think he's crazy? Maybe we should define crazy.

Now I can't stop thinking about that Gnarls Barkley song.

Did you add to the discussion at all?
Yeah. Here it is.

"Boy, is this guy crazy!" *cheesy twinkle coming from my teeth as a smile and dimple*

Could he be any crazier? I don't think so, until he tells us some other crazy prediction. Do you think he'll do that? He must be REALLY CRAZY!

Crazy guy.

Pat Robertson leg pressing 2,000 pounds!



Shame on all of you.


How can you doubt this righteous man?

The Bible is full of the Lord's servants doing extraordinary things.

We have Samson, slaying thousands with the jawbone of an ass!!

We have David killing (the GIANT) Goliath with a pebble.

These righteous individuals did super feats and were accepted as God's anointed ones.

Now we have Pat Robertson, in his senior years, pressing 2000 pounds!!!

Surely the Lord is with him.

Where did u find that pic. Wow!

Deep, you say,

.

But the idea was that they as humans didn't perform these feats, and God accepted them, the idea was that God caused those things to happen by annointing them.

Which again, is why everyone freaks out about Yaweh. We're not into that whole, "God putting a cap in your ass" thing. But it's cool in our music videos.

It often helps when doing leg presses to remove the weight locks.

I'm just sayin'.

David and Samson (supposedly) did the things I wrote and more, and this was proof the Lord was with them.

Pat Robertson like Samson has extraordinary strength.

Should David and Samson have been dismissed when they had things to say?


So how can we so quickly dismiss Robertson? The Bible is full of righteous individuals that the public ridiculed and dismissed.

No, he can't leg press 2000 pounds.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_rob...g_press_claims
Quote:
Robertson claims on his web site that through training and his "Age-Defying energy shake", he is able to leg press 2,000 pounds while others claim he is a liar, pushing a common energy formula. 2,000 pounds would be an exceptional accomplishment for a world-class athlete, to say nothing of a 76-year-old man like Robertson. For comparative purposes, when Dan Kendra set the Florida State University record of 1,335 pounds, the leg press machine required extensive modifications to hold the proper amount of weight, and the capillaries in both of Kendra's eyes burst during his successful attempt. Thus, Robertson's claimed achievement would add 665 pounds to the best-ever total of Kendra, a top athlete in his physical prime, who would go on to play professional football in the National Football League and become a Navy SEAL.

In response to the skepticism of this claim, Robertson's website has claimed that his doctor is able to leg press 2,700 pounds, and that "It is not nearly as hard as the authors of these reports make it out to be."

A video has also been provided supposedly demonstrating Robertson doing several reps with a weight of 1,000. In the video Pat Robertson is seen using a 45 degree sled type leg press machine, which reduces the effective weight to 707 lbs (sin(45°) x 1000 lbs). He keeps the safety locks in place at the second step which severely limits the range of possible motion. The seat is positioned to allow approximately six inches of travel after the lock. This setup gives Pat Robertson the maximum mechanical advantage at the last few inches of travel. This is generally regarded to be improper leg press technique, and is significantly easier than a proper leg press. The proper technique is to load the weight, place hands on the release levers and then to press the weight from the stops and then to rotate the stops out. Then, the weight is allowed to slide down until the hip and knee joints are at significant flexion. At this point, the person executing the leg press has minimal mechanical advantage and can press the least amount of weight. In the video, Robertson also uses his arms to push on his thighs, which is also regarded as improper technique.

Nostradamus predicted that Bush would be assassinated in 2007. I dont actually buy that prediction, nor many of the quatrains, but anyway.

Predicting anything is a strange business.
