    IS CURLING THE STUPIDEST 'SPORT' EVER?

    Discussion started by NATO - Feb 15, 2002

    i was watching last night and it just baffled me, how can you be an athlete if all you do is skate in a straight line and brush ice?

    I think Figure Skating is a pretty lousy excuse for a sport. Is it hard? Does it take talent and endurance? Yes! But it is dancing, dancing on ice. Not a sport.

    one person holds a pencil sideways between their hands, another person 'draws back' their pencil using the thumb and forefinger and lets it go, in an attempt to snap the sideways pencil... you trade off turns until a pencil breaks and the person is eliminated... whee fun!

    ive never heard of pencils either but it sounds fun as hell , with a pinch of danger as well ..........but we played football all the time , it rocks :D

    and i reiterate my belief that netball is not a sport.......curling and figure skating are crap , but netball is the worst !!

    I tired quickly of 'football', waste of paper, but did you guys ever use coins to play 'soccer/hockey' or ' basketball'? S/H used 3 coins and b-ball starts with spinning the coin...

    yeah we did the soccer/hockey thing , but never tried the bball.......

    the most part of 'football' is boring , but then you just try to make field goals and hit the other person in the face

    i played pencils...most fun ever....my friend was japanese and could take out any pencil in one hit...he tought me his technique...needless to say, i can wreck in pencils....i still can, when i moved up here my senior year of high school, i was reminising about the good old days in middle school and brought up pencils, the kids here were like, 'wha?'. so i demonstrated for them, and destroyed them all with my emense power.....they all thought i was a little weird after that....esspecially when i let out the sinister, 'muuaahhahahaha'.....

    one more thing, remember when you wanted to battle in pencils, but all you had was a short pencil, hard as hell to break, but when your opponent was off just by a centimeter, smack! right on top the thumb nail....ouch....

    yeah, true combat is head to head and you play until the pencil is in small chunks... if your shit got broke you gained defensive power but lost offensive power....
