    Power walking

    I'm sorry but I just watched about 5 minutes of power walking in the Olympics and actually got sick to my stomach. I just don't get it...

    Next it'll be POWER nosepicking, POWER ass-scratching, POWER teethbrushing (disregarding electric toothbrushes).

    if you're riding in a car (not driving) and you look out the side, and swing your arms it feels like you're walking really fast
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    It's not POWER walking, it's race walking. Yeah, it really looks goofy, and is as exciting as watching grass grow.
    The search for inner peace continues...
