    From Austria, who painted the famous ampitheatre painting, one of his favourite subjects was Adele Bloch Bauer.

    Also from Austria is professional football player Muhammet Akagündüz who was actually born in Turkey

    mm, river and boca was named by an english journalist the no.1 sport event worldwide. That is the biggest match humans can enjoy. The others? celtic - rangers come up after the ONE.

    I do...frequently. How can a derby be good when Rangers just beat hearts 4-0 and the 2-1 win at Easter Road. Well 2-1 just doesn't display how dominant Rangers were.

    it doesnt really matter how other teams do against the teams do in the derbies, everyone knows hearts are **** just now, but that doesnt change that its usually always a high action, fast pace game between hearts and hibs

    perfect example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dA5K0HEPWCI

    One thing that gets me about the video, how did they know the rats enjoyed it (at the end)?

    Cos they kept chasing the hand. The sounds were assumed to be laughter, or at least sounds of pleasure, but the fact that they are chasing the hand does point to enjoyment.

    You exert less force/use less energy pulling a sled than pushing it.

    True - it backspins. The others all topspin.

    Hahah, I broke a finger a few months ago (non-tennis hand, luckily). Can't straighten it. Worse in the cold.

    My knee gets sore after a lot of tennis on hard courts. Way worse when it's humid and cold. Good as new when it's warm outside (or if I warm-up properly on a treadmill or on the bike).

    By the way, Sentinel has become the master of double entendre around here. (eg: Venus, shiite clay court season in a Roddick thread, converting BPs in the 'Nepri thread). Thought I'd go ahead and proclaim that. Well done, Sentinel.

    I too got a virus thingie just before the AO (no kidding), recovered fast but not fully it seems. Feel good one day, heavy another.
    My leaded rack has begun to feel heavy. I get a fever every week, that takes a couple days to go... I think I have a fever coming on today !!!

    I know you'll all say "see a doctor", but I have lost faith in these witch doctors and shamans around here ... I just let nature heal me.
