I recently got to the point where I can throw my body directly into a perfectly horizontal flag. When I first began learning to do them this seemed like an impossible feat. Now that I have begun doing it it doesn't seem as impressive to me. It's a very strange sensation. Not the being able to do it but the anti-climatic nature of it.
Both my foot flags and hand flags feel real solid now. The next trick is to learn how to move between them without using the ground.
But since Kennedy also expressed an interest in the subject I've done more research on the evolution of the shaving of the bush.
It appears, according to In The Beginning by Carmichael, Pearson and Hattikudur that women to be married in some Muslim cultures have all of their hair removed for the wedding.
Interesting. I wonder if this means the hair on her head as well? Anyone know anything more on this?
Here's the link Josh gave me to all those Playboy centerfolds. If you recall I looked through them a couple of days ago and found that "women went from having full bush as late as 1994 followed by a transition period between 1994 and 2004 in which strips and other shaves came into popularity. And finally by the end of 2004 it became apparent that all the women had completely shaved or waxed".
I'm still looking for more on this subject. If you have any stories or knowledge to share on this I'd love to learn more.
Last night I did a thorough examination of all the Playboy centerfolds between 1953 & 2008. In my research I was able to learn that the women went from having full bush as late as 1994 followed by a transition period between 1994 and 2004 in which strips and other shaves came into popularity. And finally by the end of 2004 it became apparent that all the women had completely shaved or waxed. I'd love to learn more about the sociology of this change in the fashion of women's hygiene. Do Playboy centerfolds follow the fashion or do they drive it? What happened in 2004 which caused this change to take place?
Another thing I love about the internet is that any time someone writes about Saturday Night Live they feel they have to include their opinion that SNL is no longer funny. If the writer fails to mention it then there is always the local commenters who will dig up a rarely discussed view that SNL sucks and used to be funny before. Aside from the internet I have witnessed this now for decades. Apparently not everyone has gotten their notes on this fact. And on the internet this is every where. In fact 2 out of 3 comments on the internet are there to kindly remind us SNL sucks.
