17,003 Consecutive Pushups: World Record Held By Vegetarian

US Marine Corps Captain Alan Jones of Quantico, Virginia was struck by polio when he was five years old. Now a vegetarian, Alan could be the fittest man on Earth by amassing a record of physical accomplishments unmatched by any human that ever lived. He holds the world record for continuous sit-ups (17,003 times). In a 15-months period, he accomplished possibly the most remarkable array of physical achievements ever attained by a human being:


*


Lifted a 75-pound barbell over his head 1,600 times in 19 hours.

*


Made 3,800 basketball free throws in 12 hours, with 96 pc hit rate.

*


Swam 500 miles in 11 days, down a river to the ocean.

*


Skipped rope 43,000 times in 5 hours.

*


Skipped rope 100,000 times in 23 hours.

*


Swam 68 miles in a swimming pool without a sleeping break.

*


Swam half a mile in zero degree Celsius water without a wet suit.

*


Performed 51,000 sit-ups in 76 hours.

Peter Singer re Hitler's vegetarianism:
If Hitler had a nose, should I cut off mine?

Hitler though he did not eat flesh got bull testicle shots,
bombed untold millions of animals, provided animal flesh for the Germany
army, yet one of his last acts was to free the animals of the Berlin Zoo
that they be on their own in trying to escape Churchill's civilian bombings.
Hitler was responsible for the deaths
of billions of animals.
Churchill was not a vegetarian but instructed his butler (rather than himself)
to put a ladybug outside.

The quotes of many women are contained at http://www2.acorn.net/doc/avquotes.doc
(or the quotes section on the home page). Thank you to Dudley Giehl,
founder of Animal Liberation, who published 36 quotes in 1970 and to Gentle
World for these particular quotes which were published in 1988.
Buddha: All beings tremble before violence. All fear death. All love life.
See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?
Leo Tolstoy: Vegetarianism serves as the criterion by which we know that
the pursuit of moral perfection on the part of humanity is genuine and
sincere.
Francis of Assisi: Animals have the same source as we had. Like us, they
derive the life of thought, will, and love from the Creator.
Plato: The gods created certain kinds of beings to replenish our bodies..
they are the trees and the plants and the seeds.
Rabindranath Tagore: We manage to swallow flesh, only because we do not
think of the cruel and sinful thing we do. If after our pity is aroused,
we persist in throttling our feelings simply in order to join others
in preying upon life, we insult all that is good in us. I've decided
to try a vegetarian diet.
Gretchen Wyler: In December I shall celebrate 20 years of vegetarianism.
Having excluded dead animals from my diet, I feel more alive physically and
spiritually.
Ralph Waldo Emerson: You have just dined and however scrupulously the
slaughterhouse is concealed in a graceful distance of miles, there is
complicity.
Pythagoras: Alas, what wickedness to have one living creature fed by the
death of another.. in the midst of such wealth as Earth, the best of
Mothers, provides.
Porphyry: He who abstains from anything animate.. will be much more careful
not to injure those of his own species.
Alexander Pope: I cannot think it extravagant to imagine that mankind are
no less, in proportion, accountable to the ill use of their dominion
over the lower ranks of beings than for the exercise of tyranny over their
own species. The more extremely the inferior creation is submitted to
our power, the more answerable we must seem for the mismanagement of them.
H G Wells: In all the round world of Utopia, there is no meat. There used
to be, but now, we cannot stand the thought of slaughterhouses. (In Utopia)

Lew Ayres: star of All Quiet On The Western Front, an antiwar movie
of many decades ago: I am vegetarian because I abhor the treatment
of simpler life forms. There may have been a time and place when mankind
needed animal flesh to survive. That time is neither here nor now. Ultimately
vegetarianism cannot fail to prevail.
Ally Sheedy: I am a vegetarian because the honor love and respect I have
for my brother and sister animals and for the whole world is a reflection
of the love I have for the divine spark within us.
Bob Barker: Let's not eat anything that had a mother and a father.
George Bernard Shaw (in the last century): The average
Dennis Weaver: Common sense tells me that vegetables and fruits are
more natural foods for peple to eat, rather than meat. No one wants
to live next to a slaughterhouse, but we enjoy a little garden patch or
peach tree in our yard.








UNVERIFIED: B B King and Madonna, it is reported, wants to open a
vegetarian chain.
* until his later years in Paris where he said venison and venery
did him in
** While neither Thomas Jefferson nor Brigham Young were totally
vegetarian, both advised that meat should be used sparingly as a
condiment.
*** Newton promoted vegetarian diet in his writings
! Paul Newman, says Jay Dinshah of American Vegan Soc., promised his
wife as a New Year's Resolution to become vegetarian. His 2 vegetarian
daughters were also urging this.
#### Rep. Dennis Kucinich, highly respected member of the House of Rep,
stated on Ch 19 Cleveland that he eats no meat, turkey or chicken.
*%*%*: Thank you to Henner and Seinfeld for making people laugh.
Mary Lu Henner eats no meat or dairy but eats fish and eggwhites.
Jerry Seinfeld occasionally showed his cast eating fish in his sitcom.
Terry Garr publicly opposes fur, has not yet made the plunge.
We mention this only because both have promoted fisheating on television.
**** Please ask the pet store you might patronize to carry vegetarian
petfood.
***** The Villcabamba of Ecuador, the Hunzas of Tibet, the Azerbaijans
of the Caucasus are centenarian vegetarian peoples.
There are 200 to 300 million vegetarians in India, but that is
a minority of the Indian population
****** Peter Sellers had a brief lapse on his honeymoon.. plane
oysters.. which made him violently ill.
People love Peter Sellers not because of his diet or his romantic history
but because Peter communicated that he loved us and wanted to lift our
spirits through laughter.
(Dave Scott, winner of the Iron Man athletic contest, eats a little
fish but no red or white meat.)
******* One of Walt Rave's oil paintings was of a farmer who loved his
cow.. tears streaming down his face as he hugged her goodbye for he
saw no other way.
** Barbara Walters who in 1970 questioned giving milk to her baby daughter
announced on the 5th of April to a network audience that she is becoming
more and more vegetarian.

Alicia Silverstone, not Batgirl but Batwoman, is an animal rights
activist.

PRAY FOR THESE
a. Mel Gibson.. that he divest himself of Australian cattle ranch
(Prayers work gradually. Mr. Gibson on Nov 15th narrated a story about
a vegetarian meeting a nonvegetarian tiger. The vegetarian won.)
b. Elizabeth Clare Prophet.. that she divest herself of sheepranching
(it is unusual for someone who claims Eastern religious connection to be
involved in animal slaughter)
c. Ted Nugent.. that the arrows of his bow and arrow hunting be turned
into the laser beams of public leadership in nonviolence
d. The Mormon Church is the biggest supplier of U.S. nuts. May its
business in nuts grow.. and may it divest itself of the world's
biggest cattle ranch (says Time Magazine of August 97).. 312,000
acres of the Desert Ranch near Orlando. If it is planted in
nut and fruit trees and the cows allowed to live out their lives
among the trees, the world will be a better place.
Vegetarians in the Mormon church include Scott Smith, vegetarian magazine
editor and book author (ssmith138@compuserve.com), Jim Catano,
jimcatano@worldnet.att.net, VegWest@aol.com and manhy others.
So LDS are catching up.
(The average vegetarian Adventist lives 7 years longer than the average
nonvegetarian Mormon. These 2 groups were selected for an over decade
long study by the government because they refrain from drinking, smoking,
and the use of caffeine.).
e. May any religious group invested in businesses which harm people or
animals divest of those businesses.

May none be punished. May all be healed by the change which comes
from nonviolent compassion.
How we invest our dollars is how we vote with our souls..
When we are held accountable for our investments, good change
occurs.

Often seen shopping at his local health food store.. David Letterman,
about whom a NY pizza store has named a special..
100% vegetable pizza topping (no pepperoni.. only peppers)

Supporters of http://www.LCAnimal.org which is Chris De Rose's
Last Chance For Animals include Kim Bassinger, Alec Baldwin,
Tippi Hedron (of the Hitchcock Birds movie) and John Travolta.
Jill Clayburgh in "Who Gets the Friends?" I hate to sit on the skins
of animals (about leather couches).
Hugh Downs: Stop eating the fruit bats.
Karla Faye Tucker's final meal was bananas, peaches, and a tossed salad

wow, that's a lot of veggies. Thanks sb11. By any chance do you happen to be a vegetarian, vegan or fruitarian? I'm a fruitarian, and I've never met any others in my entire life. I keep hoping...

Anyway, I thought I'd mention one caution. Even though these people were vegs, many of them were bad people, so it is dangerous to blindly admire them for their diet (just like it's dangerous to blindly disparage all meat-eaters).

Example: Thomas Edison was an animal abuser. He experimented on dogs and cats with his electrical obsessions. He even electrocuted an elephant to death in 1903 to show off his great discovery. He filmed it:
http://imdb.com/title/tt0231523/

True, most vegs I've met are respectable, benevolent folks. But some suck! Cheers. :cheers:

Soupy, thank you so much for the link about Edison..

he also publicly demonstrated
his electric chair with a prisoner whose bones caught on fire




Why did you become fruitarian?


http://groups.msn.com/fruitarian
(the above link was erased
with tens of millions of
others by Microsoft)

http://acorn.net/fruitarian
http://www.egroups.c...ges/fruitarians


A fruitarian is someone who

eats the products of trees, vines,

berry bushes, and plants..

the fruit gifts of the plant which

do not involve killing it.


http://fruitarians.blogspot.com


I am an aspiring fruitarian..

I make my salads with avocado
tomato cucumber peppers.. not
lettuce, carrots or celery.

I buy olive oil and occasionally use soybean margarine
and icecreams made of coconut or rice.

Plutarch was a vegetarian.

lol, some of my favourite animals are carnivores (wolves, seals & whales) so I won't hold it against you :P
Like sb11 says in the post above, fruitarians are people (or animals) who eat only the products of plants without killing or harming the plant itself.

Fruit = the reproductive offshoot of a plant, so that includes yummy stuff like eggplant, beans, nuts, tomatoes, grains and my favourite... cocoa (chocolate)! So it's not as hard as you think. A lot of people are mostly fruitarian, and they don't even realize it :)
