Amazing Feats Youtube
the things some of us are able to do...some possibly decades ago for some of us, now a run to the hospital if attempted, can already feel my back popping.

RE: Amazing Feats Youtube
Yeah, I love videos like that. I have a granddaughter, not quite ten yet, who already does something similar to that hoop thing and I bet she could do the limbo under the car on skates thing, too. Completely double jointed - you'd swear she hasn't a bone in her body. Also has strength in spit of being stick thin and a sense of balance that's crazy.

Ever since she was very little she has always just gone around the house doing crazy stuff for fun (things like curling her toes under and running and jumping and even doing flips on the tops of her toes). About a year ago her mother signed her up for a beginning gymnastics class at the community center and the coaches were like, "uh-uh - this girl needs to be in the advanced class." She got to the advanced class and on the first day the coaches and the older girls were all admiring her feet (they're kind of ugly feet especially with callouses on the tops of her toes but I guess they're great for that crazy kind of stuff). Anyway, one of the younger coaches in the advanced class wanted to start working with her one-on-one because she thinks she's got Olympic potential. Of course, many, many kids have Olympic potential but only a few make it.

Think of all the mistakes made and injuries suffered on the way to conquering those successes. What is that quote by Thomas Edison that states something like every success is the culmination of 10,000 failures, speaking about finally finding the lightbulb filament that worked?
There is great need for a sarcasm font.

For some, getting out of bed is an amazing feat. Wink We used to comment on some of this stuff with: No Brain, No Pain

Yeah, I always see videos of guys taking a dirt bike over a jump and doing a double backflip and landing perfectly and wonder...just exactly how do you work up to that?... I guess most of them started out on bmx bicycles when they were young and limber and I know a lot of times they have "practice pits" for bmx and skateboarders where you come off the half pipe or whatever and do your stunt but land in a big pile of foam chunks. Still, at some point you've got to be looking at that jump while sitting on 250 pounds of motorcycle and say to yourself..."well, I aint never did this before but I'm sure I can ride up this jump and do a backflip and land on the wheels..."
