Suesh, there's this great thing called "google", it's almost making libraries obsolete except to house unemployed ball-boys, you should look into it, it would answer all your questions on the meaning of life.

This was a "PRACTICE" "ettiquwte" thread, therefore we were not keeping score--at least I wasn't. As a MENSA member and a somewhat serious tennis player, you should be familiar with body parts and the basics of anatomy like synovial joints and proprioceptors. Maybe you haven't had enough injuries yet, having a minimal understanding of human anatomy and physiology will help to prevent getting them.

Professor, maybe it's time to take a summer class on the body and a little less Chaucer. Without giving Suesh a lie detector test, I don't know if his question was "honest" or not, who knows what evil lurks in the minds of men? For example if I didn't know what MENSA was, I wouldn't reveal my lack of knowledge by asking you to educate me, I would google it.
