Doing my trainer licence and apparently we'll be playing on Rebound Ace... Great that I haven't played on that surface before. Aug 22, 2016 at 12:54 AM

        Well... It really isn't that hard actually. Definitely somewhat slower, but faster and with a lower bounce than clay, though slightly cushioned and somewhat sticky. I couldn't legitimately slide, only short skids really worked. It was harder on the knees than clay, though less hard than carpet. I quite liked it really and found it to be a fast adjustment.

        Greek philosophy is particularly interesting for moral questions and concerns of human interaction. Many texts were written trying to pin down what is good in respect to a human and how this state can be achieved. Essentially, if an exploration of human nature is what interests you, this is a very fitting starting point :)

        Well in Germany we have what we call "Leistungsklassen" (Performance Classes). In these team contests we play a season and try to get to the next higher league, while getting points for winning in matches against other classes. Rankings within a team are dine based on performance classes. It's dumb, I know

      Having to explain to an atheist what his belief consists of is almost as irritating as doing the same for somebody who is religious.

        We have no partner universities in Lyon unfortunately, and I'm not going to put in the effort for individual applications for France of all places (I might for Japan though ^^)

      Gotta say, Aristotle had some weird views regarding human interactions, particularly friendship...

        Not done yet completely, but I find the rather authoritative and forceful nature of parental friendship rather questionable. The biggest issue I have is with his supposedly objective definition of what a good person is, which to me is a fallacy

        Interesting.
        Good luck if it's a paper you're working on.

        It is a rather easy assignment relative to the commentary I had to do on Hart's The Concept of Law, so it ain't bad :p would love to chat a bit more with you regarding philosophy in general

        Also, if you decide to sell them, potential buyer here. Not sure yet which racket to go for, but its top of the list.

        The 95? I'm probably keeping those :p reason being that their condition ain't good enough to sell really though, it's easier to count the places where paint is intact rather than to list all of the scratches and smudges haha :D

        So basically... Won't be for sale, but funny that I already have a potential buyer for a racquet I don't wanna sell when the 90s are in a great package offer and nobody wants them still LOL
