I've always wondered why pullups the end-all be-all of physical fitness. It's not like a pull-up is useful in a bunch of real-life situations - for that I would look to vertical climbing where leg-levers and arm-levers can be used in tandem, and people with long arms compared to their body can compensate with their other muscles.
I went to high school in the City of Angels/Thong Song era too, and no one went to school dances at my school (except for prom of course). I went to homecoming dance my sophomore year and there were maybe 100 kids there out of a school of 1200.
I don't agree with a single word of this article, but maybe that's because my true identity is first name Ted last name Bundy.
Arthur Chu is an occassional commenter on another site I frequent, so it's strange to see him get national press! There have been a few other contestants over the years who hunt for daily doubles, and as a viewer I do get disconcerted at the questions being all out of order, but on the other hand I love when people play creatively within the rules.
My aggressive avoidance of anything that looks vaguely "viral" means this is the first time I've seeing Pentatonix! I love everything about that group! Their choreography! The beatboxing! Ahhh!
I have tiny tiny arm veins so this is relevant to me. I once made a poor dr's assistant cry in frustration because she could not draw blood after 5!!! sticks! I warned her! I warned her about my veins! Some people seem to take, "I have tiny veins that are hard to stick" as a challenge, unfortunately for me.
@Jinxie Maybe I just over-explained the joke? Although then we're just laughing at someone who's likely depressed.
People without a chair when the music stopped didn't end up in suburban San Diego, which sounds like a pretty regular and not-that-terrible place to live.
@509331430@twitter Just don't register? My husband and I didn't register. We some unexpected cash. We got some incredibly sweet, unexpected gifts from family members who wanted to give us gifts. We got some booze. It all worked out.
@muddgirl Yeah, my husband's cousins all had dollar dances, but no other wedding I've been to has had them! It's definitely cultural.
