    Nice Slam poetry really started in America and now it's international.It's really just another form of performance poetry, but there's a lot of great traditional Irish poetry out there too
    Yeah I know. Didn't the idea for rap come from slam poetry?

    I don't think so. Slam poetry really started in the mid 80's and it's really just a competitive poetry reading, rather than a style of poem. Rap was well established by the time Slam poetry came along, but I think rap might have had some roots in spoken word

    I've never been told I sound French, but about a week after I grew my moustache a guy stopped me on the street and asked if I was French

    Wow. How do you break that many bones? Do you have a brittle bone disorder or something - early onset osteoporosis? Do you box or something?

    Nobody could be that​ clumsy, surely.
    I've never been diagnosed with a brittle bone disorder so I hope not!

    I'm dyspraxic so pretty much incredibly clumsy...they've all been doing really silly things. To be fair, five bones adds up quite quickly. Wrist (football), fingers (door), collarbone (in a car crash, easier than you'd think), patella (tripping over a sofa) and ankle (trampoline), all easy enough *at least I like to tell myself

    I've got dyspraxia really bad, never broken any (of my own) bones

    "Of my own"

    Like most conditions it affects each person differently...one of my brothers is also dyspraxic and has only broken 2 bones for example.

    Or maybe I'm just clumsy.
