The GuardianHounds of Love: why do comedians make such chilling villains?The GuardianIt's similar to how we perceived Takeshi Kitano as well-gangster on account of his tough yakuza pictures, while in Japan he's a TV clown who made a running gag out of Nadia Comaneci's crotch.

Resolved Question: Poll: Who is the best
A gymnast has total control of his/her movements on the floor and in the air. He/she may perform in the Olympic stadium, or in the celluloid world, or in the real world. Korina was a young female, who could "fly like a bird", being so nimble. Nadia is a gold medal winner in the Olympics. Pierce is better known in the Bond movies for his stunt performance. and Laura for her acts in film.
About myself, I lived like a one-legged tin soldier, worked in the mission as a doctor, learning some acrobatics while trying to avoid enemies of Christ. My best performance includes scaling 12-feet high spiked gates, escaping the wheels of a bus by flying out of a metal coil around my ankle that yanked me into a bus, avoiding a direct hit by an autorickshaw by bolting backwards @50kmph, slicing a gap between vehicles speeding at me while cycling and thus hit a scooter head on, flew on, and landed with my first crippling injury in the spine. Next, I fell and broke my neck due to sheer stress, and finally skidded between two buses on a two wheeler (Flyte) of whch, the rear wheel was twisted out of alignment by the enemies of Christ, and I rolled on the road @50kmph. This is my end, and goodbye to all I knew.

Resolved Question: Would Nadia Comaneci four
If Nadia did her 1976 Montreal perfect routines at London 2012 would she definately win the gold medal or has the sport of gymnastics changed. From what I see Comaneci was vastly superior to the 2012 competitors being more fluent with less pauses and infinately superior techniche.
