    I just played a game of table tennis (ping pong to some).I forgot how simplistically entertaining this game is. Here is a small list of reasons why I think ping pong is the realness -

    1) It requires minimal physical exertion. Unlike normal tennis you more or less stay in one spot. ( this means you are spared wearing those ridiculous short shorts you'de normally find yourself wearing if you were to play tennis )

    2) its a game of quick reflex's, so unlike other minimal exertion games, like lawn bowls, or golf (these games are both cool in my book. But i'm saying compared to ping pong ...) You are not just standing around like a goon making conversation with your opponent.

    umm thats all I can think off at the moment... but really ping pong is great. As is drunken ping pong...

    fuck yeah...ping pong is the shit. especially when beer is included. however, i must say that i absolutely hate walking after the ball to pick it up. i mean yeah, i'm lazy...but bending down to pick up a ping pong ball over and over tends to get annoying. kna mean?

    finally a fucking thread about table tennis

    china ruled in this fucking game at the olympic

    pingpong is really tired, both physically and mentally if you play with the right person
    when you are drunk, i recommend not to play pingpong because the paddle will break your window *personal experience*.
    let's hear more about pingpong..

    when i was younger me and my dad would go and build things and paint houses or whatever the fuck for other people. Once we went out to this farm, well, it isn't the type of farm you're probably thinking of, these were rich people that owned a farm.. anyway, I forget what the job was.. but they had table tennis in one of their rooms and I played that shit for hours. Then we went to go get pizza and i got a lucky rabbits foot from the pizza joint.

    I have this very expensive ping-pong table right behind me. It is very heavy. Noone has played pingpong on it for almost two years. We use it as a dinner table sometimes.

    Ping pong actually takes quite a bit of skill and energy and eye hand coordination when you are at the professional level.
