Re: Footbag jokes

I heard a footbag joke about 9/11 a few years ago, but I think a few people on this forum would find it offensive so I'll keep it to private discussions. It's a bit of a dad joke anyway.

Re: Modified Book Club

Thanks Danny. Yeah we should try to write all our comments about the book club books here I guess. Here's my review from the other topic. Crying Of Lot 49 I'm a bit mixed about this. I really enjoyed the start. Pynchon's prose is excellent, and it was also funny and intriguing, however I really felt...

Re: Time it takes to get good

It's certainly possible to get good while still playing by yourself, and many of the top players in the world have. The key though, and why the question of how long it takes is so difficult to answer, is how you train. If you spend a lot of time drilling and aiming for improvement, then you can impr...

Re: Mirage

Far mirage from a clipper is "paradox mirage" and gets 3 adds (clip>same in>op toe). The third add is a paradox add. Near mirage is just a mirage and gets 2 adds. XBD add is only given to moves that end in a cross body position, not that start in it. So with the combo clipper>mirage, you only get on...

Re: Health Supplements

Proved by science? Let's see that science then. It seems particularly clear that for people with balanced diets and no diagnosed medical illness, that the vast majority of supplements do nothing. These "Green Powder" scams are numerous and I'm yet to see any actual science supporting them. Why not j...

You can add image tags to your signature. So if the images are merely hosted somewhere, such as a .org gallery, then people could just add them themselves.

Re: Kellogg's and footbag- a moral dilemma!

Sorry, no edit. I have a typo. I wrote "However if teaching children are involved, I usually agree to do it regardless of the payment, including doing it for free, because I have a vague hope that one or two of them will continue to pay", but the last word should be "play."

Re: 2014 Book Challenge

Hooray we agree on something. I really enjoyed Million Little Pieces too, despite the controversy, and I agree about the 12 steps. Actually various studies have shown that people are just as likely to quit regardless of whether they use one of the "12 steps" programs or seek no external help at all,...

Re: London/UK based Footbag expert/talent needed

With posts like this, I'd advise messaging or emailing at least one of the people involved, rather than just posting in the topic, as time may be of the essence, and the people might not check the topic. I'll look up Matt Bailey and email him now.

Send Lotus Footbags

Recently Lotus, an iconic Australian footbagger, lost his house and everything in it in a large bushfire. Thankfully he and his family evacuated in time. Being a bit of a hippy, he's been deliberately possessionless in the past, and claims to not want things or money (although there is a MyCause you...

Re: Footbag Project Forum Inquiry.

There are a few different projects going on, so it could be helpful, although just posting them in "General Footbag" is also ok. I guess people would be more aware of project discussion if there was a particular forum for it, and we might inspire more people to help.

Cool. I've read the first 7 pages so far, on ebook, still waiting for my physical copy. Obviously I'm not far into it, but it reminded me a lot of Vonnegut. Your description makes me think that too.
