From General Discussion / Pole Vaulting
Posted 19 Aug 16 23:46
Message
Has a pole vaulter ever fallen on top of their pole at the apex of their vault and been skewered like a Maraschino cherry on a miniature plastic sword in a cocktail?

This concerns me as I watch televised competition.

The Panama Hat was invented by Thomason Edisoni of Ecuador.

After hundreds of failed attempts to make hats out if carbon black and lamp wick soaked in saltpetre he finally managed to arrive at a serviceable model that would stay in fashion for an extended period of time.

Fashion can scarcely repay Edisoni for his toil and many Panama hats from his day are still in use.

Invented, Vic? Aren't things that are 'invented' usually processes or devices?

For example, James Hargreaves invented the Spinning Jenny in 1764.

Far be it for me to be pedantic.

Yours pedantically,

Moys

One wonders why such misdirection about the origin of such a fine hat.

I am looking forward to an Inuit emerging from one of those parkas and building an igloo.

Let's not forget whoop wandering, leper leaping and von mongering, I predict new records in Rio.


Quote: Erskin Quint

Ah, halcyon days indeed. A few more:

The spontaneous combustion relay;

Freestyle cat-staring;

the Dandified Marathon, in which spats, a cravat and Malacca Cane-twirling were compulsory, and competitors had to whistle "Little Dolly Daydream, Pride of Idaho" throughout;

Four-man snuff-taking;

the 3000 metre sideways steeplechase;

Semaphore Tennis.

Yes, how could one forget those halcyon days of loam handling and runder trunderling.

Beyond the obvious professionals involved I wonder what Olympic sports might be parlayed into a career once the crowds dissapear.


Let us not forget that the Olympics was only founded in 1896 by Sir Wilbur Olympic to settle a wager he had with his friend Lord Percy of Upper Congo. The wager being that a Chinaman could beat a Hottentot in a trio of events - the 73 acre dash, nude flannel wrestling, and pony tossing.

That wager has long been settled, so the whole thing should have been forgotten by now.

Why are the athletes wearing parkas before their events?

Didn't someone tell them this is the summer Olympics, Hello!

I would not be suprised if a lady human would have a similar effect on a gentleman human. I am a bit suprised that it is an Olympic sport however.

Which country is the front runner?


Quote: Sir Geoffroy Cockface

As an amateur zoologist, I am familiar with apes. When a lady bonobo wishes a gentleman bonobo to make love to her, she pokes her buttocks in the air to attract his attention. This rather erotic if crude display is called "presenting".

So when I heard that Clare Balding would be presenting at the Rio Olympics I was naturally outraged, as well as strangely aroused.

Has anyone else suffered from any similar zoological misunderstandings?

Stupid people like him.

They think, "Trump is rich, successful and stupid, I might still have a chance."

Such wit for young Boris
I'm sure he'll not ignore us
So many many clever words abound
Some lost and some found
Roused together by many in chorus

I coined this new word to characterize followers of Trump.

It seems to sustain itself despite all good sense.

Erskine

While dead whales are hard to come by and may distract some visitors they also encourage other whales to drop in unexpectedly and never leave until they clean you out of krill.



Well, you're welcome to try it. I've only tried it on bumble bees.

As far as house guests go, I generally find that a dead whale in the front garden tends to keep them at bay pretty effectively.
