    I'm surprised we're just talking about this. Then again, I didn't start a thread about it when I heard the news last week. <-- [EDIT] terrible spelling errors [/EDIT]

    Anywho, didn't Dan Kendra have to have a special modified machine to carry the 1335 lbs world record leg press? And if I remember correctly, the capilaries in his eyeballs began to rupture from the strain. Kendra was in his late 20's and a full-time athelete. Robertson was 73 w/ prostate cancer. This story is such drivel.

    It's more likely that he did those things with his mouth. He's built up a lot of muscle there.

    Using my incredible powers of deduction, I can only conclude the following possibilities:

    1. Pats' cancerous prostate gave him superhuman abilities, albeit temporarily.

    2. His leg muscles became enhanced, by a lifetime of enrichment from blood that should've gone to his brain.

    3. Something involving God and/or Adam Smith.

    4. He was so full of sh**, that the weights rested upon the ever-growing pile.





    ***actually, I saw a (brief) news story on this (with video) - and the weights were nowhere near the weight he claims...there was some wierd denominations used and spacers iirc.***

    Do you mean to say that Pat can't actually lift a Volkswagen using his legs? Surely I would have thought God bestowed upon him this superhuman strength after warning us that, in fact, the hurricanes in Florida were really God's wrath against a civilisation that supports and embraces the sodomites. I even heard some guy in the grocery yesterday talking about how his brother knows a girl that attends a church whose pastor is good friends with Pat's wife. According to him, Pat is planning to climb Mount Everest on his mountain bike.

    Good, maybe that will take care of him once and for all.

    Darwinism at work.

    I'm sorry, but I've been lifting for 10 years and I can only do 470 pounds. He's insane. :)

    Do you suppose Pat would think you were a wuss?

    How dare we question the validity of his obvious superhuman strength. :rolleyes: Welcome to the new world of neocon, religious zealot truthiness. I'd say this was just something stupid or really bad math, but unfortunately it's indicative of a larger problem. Granted most of us think it's crap, and I'm glad someone called him on it. But no doubt there are people out there who believe such things and might even be angry that we would dare claim he was mistaken, let alone outright lying.

    This is kinda like when Cheney shot that guy in the face. Or Bush made that stupid remark about the almost blind guy's sunglasses. I should just take it as it is and laugh it off as stupidity, but it actually kinda pisses me off for some reason.
