Apparently, it's not only the suits, but the pool as well, since something about that pool has been tweaked to increase swimming speed. Oh, and have any of you thought about how the Chinese have three of their six gymnasts not meeting the requirement for age? In gymnastics, the younger they are, to ...

Used to smog??? I'm sorry, but it may be a touch easier for the lung-damaged SoCal-ians to handle it, but they're still lung-damaged, so they likely wouldn't be there anyway, unless they were competing in things like, oh, waterpolo (well, not much of the nation plays it, so...), fencing and other th...

Well, it's not like the mountainous jungles are that easy or open, to be able to explore to FIND them, especially when you don't even know they're there. I've not explored jungles, but I HAVE done so in forests and mountains, and sightlines are very short, so you could be within a quarter mile of a ...

Gotta love that financial stress! I know that I sure do.... I mean, living without a consistent income has become altogether too normal for me, and, well, it's working wonders for my body and my soul (well, my mind, actually). I really hope that you two WILL get what you need for work, and that it w...

I agree on that, TM! Putting all that weight above the head would make anyone who was putting it on feel like he had reverse liposuction, but instead of it being put back where it was, it's put in a huge tub and then balanced on the shoulders... just too much! However, if he could get the metals cha...

Aldan was sitting at the bar with his sugar-free chocolate/strawberry icecream shake, when he realized that things had been rather calm (relatively speaking, of course) for quite some time, which got him rather worried. After untying his katana's pommel from the scabbard, he returned to his shake.

Really, the Silmarillion could almost be considered a single book of novellas set in the LotR universe, but take place at the time when the Rings were first created, and goes through the results of that creation. I'd suggest that it be checked out, also, by any fan of the trilogy, as it's a wonderfu...
