All in good fun folks!

I wanted to prove a point with my son Davey. He's my GENTLE giant. That's what I call him.

I'm only 5'ft. 8-9". (I might be shrinking...dunno...don't care) and put a cushion on the coffee table to help out our elbows. (performed this experiment 10 mins. ago)

I wanted to show him that I do have upper arm strenght, albeit, not as strong as he has, and wanted to show him the physics behind a 'fulcrum and lever'. I definately have to put this to video.

It started out like this:

1. Cushion is put under both elbows.
2. Arms are lined up. Thumbs are grasped. (you know the drill)
3. GAME ON!!! We (or rather I SHOULD SAY...struggled) to put the other's arm down.

I used alllllllllll my might and that bun-of-a-stitch, put my hand down in 5 seconds. Jesus he's strong. I gave it a valient effort!

Aside from any veins pOpInG or pulsating out my deranged forehead....lololol, we had a good run.

On the average (99% of the time) YESSSSS...men are stronger.

Then I decided to throw a stinkin curve-ball into the mix.

I used my other arm and held it strategically above my fighting arm....and Voila!...s u c c e s s.

I was trying to illustrate a point of physics and strength.

My poor son stuggled til he was going out of his ever loving mind.

I, on the other hand, had displayed NO EFFORT, whatsoever, and had to stop the match, outta fear of sonnyboy poppin a vein or two.

Love it.

I've been studying sum stuffs, and the funniest things is when someone tries to get 'one up on me' - physically - the ones that I've got 'one up on' - they now....alll of a sudden want to try the physical stuffies with me. Problem with them, is that I've figured out how to wrestle their arses now.

I've been working on the physical, and the Spiritual/Phylosophical and Scinetifical in the last while. you have NO idea what I've been up to.

yeah i know what you're saying..

all i'm saying is just let em know that despite you're cool, calm, collected demeanor, you're not the person to be messing with, that's all.

Heh that reminds me of my grandma.. She's pretty strong for 65

I become nauseated whenever I think of arm wrestling. I'm not sure why :shk:



Is there a reason for this to happen, or does it happen regardless?
