I dunno where from? I play around in different states and cities and stuff but who knows
Yeah, when you have to keep your ankle braces on while you eat, well... that's not good. You're cute, though. Don't worry. Just don't go crazy at Applebee's.
You mean, no one is cut.
seriously, they look like nice folks-good pix
yeh... but now ppl will complain that ur showing other ppls faces when ur supposed to crop them out in order to keep privacy...
Meg I see You got the Paris hiltons Stance!!! Geesh I see the Lap Dogs Are really Lapping Meg Up GET REAl!!!!
Wow, three angry faces in one post. I'm sorry you feel that way Frodo, but if you don't like them, don't click the links. I'm not here to make anyone mad.
Are you really playing without socks? I can't fathom how people can manage to do that (I've seen other doing that too). I would get blisters all over my feet...
They're probably just really low cut. Which isn't a good idea either, I got a staph infection this year from an infected blister caused by crappy socks. Painfull like you don't even know.
I'm a big fan of low cut socks, also.
Yeah, I don't mean to be rude but most of them (other than you) look like they wouldn't be able to make it through a three set match...or even chase down a ball. And the chick on the left is a total mess.
^ Maybe somebody told them to put their weight behind the shot and thought to themselves "more weight equals a better shot." I'm guessing here.
Yeah, I was the only starting senior on my team this year. Most of them can't even make contact.
Essentially, "I'm the best! I'm the best! the others are no good - I'm much more fit than any of those losers and they're much worse players than ME...." and on and on and on...
It's quite incredible - in a most unfortunate way - that many months into this thread - and a new year, even - she's still doing the exact same thing she was doing months ago. And, as Ivy says, the guys are lapping it up. What a terrible thing to do - encouraging a young adolescent girl to be so entirely self-absorbed, while she craps all over anyone who might possibly be perceived as competition.
100% certainty that if she was a guy doing this, she (he, in that case) would have been shot down by everyone a long, long time ago for being an arrogant egomaniac.
She's only a teen, and she's got you all wrapped around her middle finger already. Paris Hilton, here we come.
Ivy's got the only accurate perspective here.
Deuce, chill.... That's just wrong man...
Everyone else is allowed to post whatever pictures they want. People yell at me when I crop others out. This time I didn't and what happens? More complaints. I never said I was more fit than anyone and I never said I was a better player so relax Deuce.
I'm only self absorbed because you choose to be cynical and perceive everything as being a conceited remark.
Ivy's perspective is hardly ever accurate...unless it's concerning Lotr, then it's right on target.
When was the last time a self-centered egomaniac admitted that that's what they are? It doesn't happen.
When I think of the person you'll be in 10 years if you continue along your current path, Meg, I absolutely shudder. The word 'insufferable' doesn't begin to do justice. You will be, essentially, Paris Hilton - although likely without the fame. That should scare the crap out of you. Others don't mind, because they don't give a damn - they're just playing along, happy to be getting attention from a relatively attractive (physically) teenage girl. For myself, I hate to see young people being so absolutely selfish and self-absorbed. I hate to see it in adults, too - but in kids, it is especially disturbing, because of their relative naiveté - and because self-absorption is so self-destructive. What makes it all the more sickening is to see that it's being fed and encouraged by others - some of whom are adults - for their own selfish `pleasure`. Entirely and obviously apathetic adults.
heres one of me i took out the small kid with donsyndrome but i might put the one with him in it i cant decide, i do think its a it unfair cause his brothers one of my friends now
Are you a dude or a dudette?
it was taken from a crappy phone but im a dude res the othr 1
Soz Whoa Triple Post
Meg, don't sweat it. He's just being Deuce. A grown man shouldn't be arguing with a teenage girl on the internet over something so trivial.
No - a grown man - which I believe you claim to be - shouldn't be encouraging such superficiality and self-absorption in a teenage girl.
How old are you - late 20s, I believe you said? I've seen how you get involved in the "who's the hottest player?" or "who's the hottest actress?" threads, as well as seen how every third post of yours contains some sort of supposedly 'clever' sexual innuendo. It's a given that you wouldn't have touched this thread if the attractive teenage girls were either unattractive, or were teenage boys. You enjoy the attention you're getting from the pretty teenage girls - that's the only reason you're here. It's also pathetic.
MegacedU, shes nice but that aint what he means lol
I really think it's just a generation gap thing. For some older people the thought of people posting their pictures on the internet seems strange, but for my generation it's ALMOST normal, and for the younger generations, it's mundane. Actually, what some of the younger people do sort of makes me squeamish, but I don't see what's going on in this thread as being a problem.
Okay, you don't like my sense of humor, I can live with that. You don't like my humor, you don't like people posting their pictures, you don't like people responding favorably to posted pictures, you don't like a lot of things. It's cool.
I didn't even notice anybody was giving me attention. I'm going to have to go through the whole thread again. Deuce, you take the internet way too seriously, but you can claim victory this round. You win at the internets!
Deuce, you act like I'm some little kid, not just months away from legality. (word?) I've DATED guys in almost their mid twenties. I'm not about to say I'm looking to date 35 but you act like someone older shouldn't even be talking to me. Yes, it's a bit weird that I'm still in high school, but look at it this way, if someone is say, 5 years older than me now, when I'm 21, they'll only be 26. To me that's not really a big deal. Plus, any guy in his twenties who didn't par-take in "Who's hotter", I'd question. It's not like I'm 12 or something.
Also, it's obviously not the only reason he's here. To state that based on such a small portion of his posts is what's really pathetic. I've seen him give some knowledgable and insightfull tennis advice.
Time to post some pics...
This first one was taken directly after my High School graduation ceremony back in May 2003. At the very bottom is my younger brother. Far left, who also graduated with me, is my best friend Jared who is currently studying at University of NC - Charlotte. To the right of him is his brother. Far right is me and directly left of me is this guy named Joey...who was the backup up singer for the band I was in back then...I was drummer. Those were the days man...now it seems it's all about science and research.
This one is semi-recent. This was in Columbus, GA shortly before my flight to Germany. Since I know nobody is looking at ME in the pic, i'll tell you who that lovely lady to my left is. She's a very special friend of mine and her name is Brittany.
^ Docalex, you look like Enrique Iglesias in your avatar.
LOL. I can't see it. Sadly though, I don't pull chicks like Enrique does.
Edit: That was a pic (edited by photoshop of course) someone took of me right before a big match last month on indoor carpet. I lost that match because of some female distraction playing at the side court whose rear end looked amazing (I know, i'm still a primitive mammal).
What are you looking at him for? Look at Brittany! Nice catch Doc!
Thanks norcal, I caught her using traditional bait - worms and crickets.
No, the instinct that makes men stare at beautiful females is what allowed us to evolve to where we are now in the first place. So feel no shame in the game. I know when I'm at the gym, a hot girl makes me run about 20 minutes more than I usually would. Actually, I'm spoiled in LA. First NYC now LA, so many good looking girls that after a while your standards become terribly distorted. I go to Target on La Brea to buy toilet paper and it's like Jessica Alba's everywhere just wandering around. I know they're not there to buy anything, they just have nothing better to do and they're hoping to be discovered/seen. Actresses. Phhtt.
Haha tell me about it. They work as good motivation really, I can usually put up a little more than usual if i see hot chicks at my gym.
Yeah, for the most part that's true with me as well at the gym. I can go longer and harder than normal if a hot female is around. This is where peripheral vision comes into play!
The only downside to this is that I tend to "over use" a certain machine. I'll stay in that area an extra 20 minutes or so doing extra sets or something when I could be moving on to something else.
But like ShooterMcMarco said, it's extra motivation. Sometimes our self-motivation for a healthier body is lacking and we need to be reminded that we do indeed partly work out (you can't deny it) to look good for the ladies.
A fit girl on a stairmaster is like a performance enhancing drug for me. I used to love going to Crunch in NYC. Not just to stare at girls, but if you go to the right gym, it's almost like going out for the night. Decent music, nice people, healthy vibe, it was a totally guilt-free experience for me. I wasn't drinking, or being lazy, it was win win. Totally guilt free experiences is a rare thing in today's world.
Alex you play the drums?! WHOA!
9 years set/concert and 6 years of pattery percussion here.
That's pretty cool man. Music is a drug for me...I have to have it. I don't know if you have this problem, but everytime I hear a song I have this internal beat in my head. If I'm bored, I'll start involuntarily beating on the desk or whatever.
Drumming is a very powerful thing to do. We used to play layed back to heavy rock music back when we were still together. There was this one show we played one song for half an hour!!! We were all just flowing in our own realm and doing our own thing...but still very aware of where everyone was at.
I could go on and on - my passion is deep with music.
kim me teadora
me so cool
and yes i am real
kim and i at tennis [ i had a fly in my face!]
us again in the sunshineeee
kim and i on synthetics [i hate them!!]
Woo I haven't played tennis in months =(
Natalia - Is that synthetic grass? I've never seen that before.
We have synthetic grass in a few areas in melbourne. i think i've played on it about 20 times.
How does it play?
Prince, nice picture.
I meant, of course, that this is the reason he's here, in this thread. I have to explain this to you because you're a kid. Accept it - don't deny it. It's who you are.
Another example of your inexperience - you don't know if 'legality' is a word. And you're too lazy to find out. If you were the adult that you perpetually pretend to be, you would know - and if you didn't, you'd find out.
Meg these are the words of a true, absolute - and typically clueless - teenager. Especially the part in bold. You haven't a clue about this aspect (and many other aspects) of life. You have no idea about the effect that gaining the attention of pretty young girls has on the false ego of 95% of men - at any age. There are many, many things you don't know, Meg - and to pretend you know is simply to reveal your own ignorance.
At your age, 5 years is equivalent to about 30 years in your 40s. That is to say that what a 16 or 17 year old will learn in the next 5 years is roughly equivallent to what a 40 year old will learn in the next 30 years. Thus the difference between a 16 or 17 year old and a 22 year old is huge - no matter how "mature" the 16, 17 year old insists that he/she is. The 22 year old will be able to take advantage of the 16, 17 year old absolutely at will - so much so, that it's embarrassing. Of course, there are occasionally exceptions - but you are clearly not one of them. Exceptions on the side of the 16, 17 year old person being at the same level of experience and maturity as the 22 year old are extremely rare - perhaps 5 cases in recorded history. More often, in the case of exceptions, it is due to the immaturity of the 22 year old. I'm sure you've heard this before - and I'm sure you've rejected it before - because you think you're already extremely intelligent and wise and ever so mature. And this is precisely my point. You have no idea.
"When I was 17, I thought my father was the most ignorant person in the world. When I turned 21, I was amazed at how much he had learned in only four years." - Samuel Clemens.
It's alright. It's a bit slower to hard court and has lower bounce.
yeah it is. theres a club 5 mins from my house that only has synthetic courts
its so not cool.
Natalia, are those courts near Freo?
