    I used to be able to sit with my legs 90 degrees apart with my arms on them and touch my forehead to the ground. I'm not even going to try it - the idea of groinstrain just doesn not appeal.


    p.s. my friend does ballet and can do the whole standing-up-with-one-led-parrallel-to-her-body thing. And she is the spit of Britney SPears. grrrr.

    Think that's called a Japana. In gym we used to have to do it holding your arms out in front, and have your whole chest on the floor, not just your head. Man that hurt - used to have people sitting on my back to make me go lower :eek:

    OH DEAR GOD! I used to just do it cause I could, like how I used to pull my knees up into my nighty and rock backwards and forwards, stand on the arms of the rocking chair with walking sticks and rock backwards and forwards pretending I was skiing, and blow so many bubbles that the carpet became slippery.

    And I never got told off. Yay to fulfiling your parents' every wish!

    £5 a pair in a sealed bag, p&p not included. Includes a signed photo of me wearing the socks.
    in all honesty the schoolgirls are offering a better deal.

    Indeed, I'm sure many terroist organisations would love to have it as a biochemical weapon.
