Or can any of you solve the Rubik's Cube as fast as this robot?

My freshman year in college, we had a couple of the girl's gymnasts on my dorm floor, so our crew got to know the team pretty well.  Anyway, the flexibility is cool and all, but every single one of those girls was jacked up from gymnastics.  i don't know if it's the intense training or the fact that that kind of flexibility is just plain too much on the body.  But it was nearly 100% rate of just odd injuries.  knees, shoulders, hips.  It was quite shocking to me to see that happen in 4 years.

It was amazing enough when the first one got in the box, but when the 2nd one got in there with her, my jaw dropped. I was not expecting that.

An interesting article on why flexibility is overrated (realizing that projecting reality on a fun and frivolous discussion ruins the fun!):

An interesting alternative if you're into stretching already is to look up resistive stretching or dynamic stretching.

@zridling: that kid is amazing!  How old could he possibly be?  12 or 13, tops?

I am *TOTALLY* that flexible, when I do the back bend just before I squeeze myself into my plexiglass cube for the night.

I have to admit though, that at 232 pounds, my ribs don't stick out quite as much as the performer.

Okay, it's lunchtime and that means it's time to squeeze myself into the shoebox cafetia.

Later gator!

And using the correct word gives a whole new meaning to what you just said. ;) ;D
