Re: Canberra, Australia via SCL - Daniel Boyle

This has been discussed before. That's a preference. You don't judge based on preference. I don't agree. It's a form issue. Otherwise you have to have set differently if you're doing bedwetter vs flaming tard. People set across their bodies usually because it makes the trick easier or because they ...

Re: Canberra, Australia via SCL - Daniel Boyle

I reckon the food processor record is lower than the whirr record because stepping out of blender is reasonably hard, while whirling out of a whirl is not. I definitely think variety of components should be an important part of sick 1, and food processor smashes whirr on that criteria - Food is esse...

Re: Canberra, Australia via SCL - Daniel Boyle

I think whirr v food on paper is very hard to judge. Food is more interesting. Whirr is probably harder, generally, although what trick people find hard depends a lot on what they've practiced, so I wouldn't expect everybody to find whirr harder than food. I think though I hit whirr first or second ...

Ingress

Hi Modified people, For a while now I've been playing the fun smart phone augmented reality game "Ingress", and at our recent footbag jam in Sydney last week I managed to recruit a few more footbaggers to the game. In many ways it's a lot like footbag, with lots of small tight communities, and a lar...

Re: Systemic Bigotry: Manifestations and Preventative Measur

The one time when we ran a survey (or any kind of survey) of modified members, this exact issue came up as a serious concern for a significant number of members, a number of who were "closeted" homosexuals. I've thought this is a massive problem in footbag for many years. I'm sure the issue in footb...

Re: Modified Book Club

A top ten PKD is a good idea. Here's my top 9, because that's all I've read I think :P. Will have to work on that. I ignored short story anthologies though, which I've read most/all of, and would be in positions 1-5 if I included them :). I think my top 5 are super good, and I'd recommend to anybody...

Re: Editing with a Time Limit

A much better feature is untimed edits but with an edit history. There seems to be a few of these, although I'm not clear how well developed they are. Being able to keep running lists seems like a popular function of modified, so being able to always edit is something that I'm sure a lot of people w...

Re: Request contest

"Notice how I use tricks like Ripwalk, Ducking Clipper, PLO and other tricks that you experienced players keep telling us to practice. They never show up in contest, so why did you tell me to practice them? Instead, I am going to fail on some Quantum or Fairy nonsense." Because you need to learn tho...

I still have a scar above one of my eyes from getting kicked shortly after I started playing footbag. I didn't need stitches though.

Re: Is the United States a surveillance state?

I would say that the answer is no, or at the very least, when you compare the US to other countries in the area of citizen surveillance, it is much closer to the best countries than the worst. I think the other thing worth noting is that most of the surveillance is essentially passive. A lot of data...

Re: What kind of stretches do you guys do?

I know this is a bit of random news article, but there's a growing body of research suggesting you shouldn't stretch before sport. Stretching after is fine. http://healthland.time.com/2013/04/08/why-stretching-may-not-help-before-exercise/ I wouldn't take these sorts of studies as demonstrating beyo...
