...and I can bench Pat Robertson's ego.

fudtheman: I doubt that, unless you are as strong as the Governator.

it's a lie from the pits of hell.

whatta freak

But, remember, he only had to lift like 100 pounds himself because he had God to lift the other 1,900 pounds....

Pat and God are tight. They hang out and stuff.

I can barely lift my ass off the couch.

oooh, oooh, oooh, I know how he does it:
2000 of these

This begs the question: What Would Jesus Press?

It begs another question... Which is more difficult for Pat to press, a ton of bricks or a ton of feathers?

Was he lie -ing down when he did it?

*snicker*

Remember, the man can pray away hurricanes. What is 2,000 lbs to deflecting a hurricane with the force of your will?

Wow. I'm afraid all I can do is repeat what Dave said... wow.

He can go & take out Hugo Chavez all by himself then?

Pardon my french, but Holy Bull****

I heard he actually did it with his mouth.

just what exactly is this psycho on?? it aint
jay-sus juice, either.

silly bloggers..didn't you read the part where it said...

"One of Pat's secrets to keeping his energy high and his vitality soaring is his age-defying protein shake."

*SNORK!* @ Chianca!

His doctor, by the way, has leg pressed 2,700 pounds. It is not nearly as hard as the authors of these reports make it out to be. We have multiple witnesses to the 2,000 pound leg press, plus video of the 10 reps of 1,000 pounds.

or, for you broadband users:
100 of these
(dial-up users, don't torture yourselves)

Wait a gol-daggity minute...is this in metric?

the subject line for the email from Mike was actually: Jesus could only bench-press 250. ;)

I'd pay good green money to watch Pat Robertson leg press 2,000 pounds.

Or watch 2,000 pounds press Pat Robertson's legs....

Kim Jong Il probably claims the same thing! That's two people!

Pat Robertson (if elected): Sen. Part Robot

Wow. What a egomaniacal evil, fibbing b@$%@&d. I would be personally willing to go to hell just to see Pat there.

Hmm. Almost.

Start no probe.

Wow. What a egomaniacal evil, fibbing b@$%@&d. I would be personally willing to go to hell just to see Pat there.

Agree'd

That's 100% Grade A USDA Choice Bullshit.

Robot parents!

Maybe that's pounds Sterling.

I cannot believe this. I sent this to my husband, and now I'm getting a detailed lecture (via Messenger) on exactly how and why 2000 pounds is not that much to leg-press.

Glix, please tell your husband that 2,000 lbs is 600 some lbs over the Florida record -- a figure only matched by Olympic-class athletes. Moreover, the 2,700 lbs claimed by his doctor is substantially MORE that the world record. Furthermore, point out that leg-pressing 2,000 lbs would be the equivalent of lifting small car clear off the ground. If he requires further proof, offer to park a car on his legs.

* F&#king robot! *

I can't believe you people are so skeptical. I saw Yoda lift an X-Wing fighter without touching it!

You can say that again, Esker ...

Golly, if Robertson fibbed about this, what does that say about the rest of his pontifications?

I can practically hear the Six Billion Dollar Man music in my head.

Though in his case, it would be little less, like $5,999,999,999.99 less or so.

From the CBN site:

"Disclaimer: Consult with your physician before starting this or any new health or exercise regimen."

Average Joe: "Doc, I'm thinking about leg-pressing 2,000 pounds as part of my new health and exercise regimen."

Doctor: "I don't see why not, Joe. The gamma radiation treatments seem to be working quite well for you."

I'd post a comment, but I have other pressing issues to deal with....

No, weight!

D. Esker - the post so nice you posted twice?

You're just a double-click fool on a single click page.

With leg press machines, it's all about the leverage and pulleys. The numbers on the weights are meaningless. May as well have an amp that goes to 11.

Even if you compare squats with real weights, it depends on how much gear the athletes wear - it can make a difference of hundreds of pounds. But I don't think anyone's squatted much over 1000, even with gear.

Amazing leg strength like that must come in handy when he's carrying bags of cash to the bank.

I think he should try it with his head, I'm sure nothing bad could happen... could it?

age-defying protein shake

Does that mean it doesn't get moldy no matter how long you keep it in the fridge?

The part of the story they left out was that after one rep, "Robertson's entire belief system was crushed, and he now sings soprano"

Someone asked -- "what does that say about the rest of his pontifications?" Can he pontificate? Or is it just only Catholics that can?

*snork* at fudtheman

(My first snork -- ooh, that tickled!)

Peter: Pontificate means "to build bridges." The Pope's title is "pontif" or "bridge-builder," the implication being that he acts as a bridge between God and humanity. A lot of people would question the notion that the Pope is qualified to do that, but I think we can all agree that the Reverend Extremely is less qualified. Still, there's nothing to stop him from trying -- but the maximum load on his bridges ain't so high.

Now you see why snorks are so much fun, Wessonality!

Hey I clicked the translate button and converted to Korean. It was way more believable.

I bet it's because he gets his strength from food he cooks on one of those Jesus griddles!

"One would have to see what type of leg press it was on and under what parameters it was done."

Exactly! Pulleys! Mirrors! Smoke! Magicians can lift airplanes!

Hmm... 2,000 pounds, eh? Only a little more till he can lift Rush Limbaugh.

Major snorks to all!

To be serious (No, please don't) Neil G has nailed it. The numbers on the machine may indicate what weight is hanging on the machine, but that is NOT the weight you are actually lifting. The weight numbers provide a little ego boost. It all comes down to a little thing called the principal of the lever - discovered by our old friend "Eureka" Archimedes. You can lift 2000 pounds through 2 inches with the same amount of force you use to raise 200 pounds 20 inches. So the silly old bugger isn't lying - he's just deluded. `


That's nothing! You should see how far he can sling the bull!
