RE: 45 posts and 0 arguments!
Fireball, once someone in Sweden took about an hour to explain to me the rules of curling, in great detail. Don't remember a thing. Was interesting though. Same happened with cricket. Also in Sweden (different person though).

I hate sprinters because it's fucking boring, requires absolutely no skill other than putting one leg in front of the other real fast. And they show those bastards for like 70% of time, unlike the REAL athletes like the decathlon guys. Several excruciating DAYS of TEN different disciplines sure don't hold a candle to running for how long? Ten bloody SECONDS. Dodgy

Either way, if all you have going for you is physical strength, let me reiterate - I shudder to think of a humanity based on that. We'd still be living in caves, killing mammoths. Granted, we might be able to fell them with a single blow, but so what?

I am with Ingersoll: "The ages of muscle and miracle - of fists and faith - are passing away." And good riddance. They cannot pass away soon enough Dodgy

Have mercy on me, guys, I am but a weak woman... and there's only so much big, strong manly man I can endure...


... and seeing as there's one here, convinced the only reason I came to Rio after 6 years is to sleep with him *and* I'm finishing my quota of non-dumb books for the year and have another steaming pile of big-strong-manly-man crap to deal with (in one of the worst ones, the big strong men are also amateur boxers *and* volunteer firefighters *and* single dads and can you CRAM even more cliches into a single book?! And then do the exact same thing and book and cliches, but give it another title? Censored )

Where was I? Ah, yeah - nothing like a big strong man in a (white) wifebeater. Nothing as repulsive, I meant Drinking Beverage
