    I know this has nothing to do with rackets.

    As my need is urgent, I urge the Mods to please keep this thread in this section due to the high traffic. At the end of October 23, this thread can just be deleted.

    I've just received info that I have to pitch for "a piece of work". I need members' help on a very simple question. The question is:

    What would you think of, when you think of something "Tropical".

    This is an open question. Please provide your input in anyway you like it.

    I have to prove something in three days otherwise I might loose this job ...

    Thanks, mod, and everyone for your help.

    Palm trees, open clear blue ocean, breezy, women in bikinis, good looking european-ish looking people smiling, relaxing and chatting having a good time just chatting on the beach, fine white sand. And if I can zoom out on this 'tropical lens', I'd see one of those cities that looks like Majorca.

    anirut, this is besides the point of the thread, but i was looking at your sig and i want to try out the filling the handle with foam. Do you fill the whole racquet with foam, or does it just fill the handle?

    Palm trees first, then tropical fruit, or a guy sitting in one of those floating chairs sucking on a ' mai tai.'

    RE: Tropical

    My girlfriend is Brazilian. This is one thing I think of when one says "tropical". In Brazil, the "bunda" or glut max is iconic in the social culture...not in a profane or
    disrespectful way, but, as eroticism is an integral and normal part of everyday life, as it is in Scandinavia, it is a part of everyday conversation. The "Bunda" in Brazil holds a special place, and is intrinsically and anatomically different from other "bundas" around the world. So, to me, it is "Tropical.

    Can you say "Carmen Miranda", or "Energy Independent" , "Amazona"?

    USE YOUR IMAGINATION, MAN!
