Pants clarification update

My four-year-old son said he wished he could jump into his pants, during this morning's clarification, so I showed him this video (via Althouse). I love guys like these.

Is this one of Gene's talents that won you over?

Gene has many talents, yes, but not likely one like that.

You know this video made me think of you, Luther. You think these guys are on the college gymnastics team?

Uh, I meant not likely that particular talent.

Is there an editor in the house?

I’m pretty sure these guys are just run of the mill circus freaks. Notice they have to have someone hold the pants so they can jump into them. We gymnasts used to goof off by throwing our pants in the air and then flipping into them whilst they were in mid flight.

Well...the first segment showed a guy holding his pants which he jumped into. Better back up the video for proof, though. I'm notorious for creating things out of thin air.

But the last one of the teeter totter backflip into 'held' pants was 9.9's the whole way across. I gave him a 10 but the butt from Belgium had a deal with the Madagascar judge and knocked him down to a 9.8. Idiot. I'm lodging a protest.

A gymnast on my dorm wing had the ability to get into a hand stand on the arms of a lounge chair starting from a seated position.

Of course, I'm completely easily impressed in many things. I'm so bad, I even impress myself sometimes thinking I'm just so clever. But then a day or so passes, and I come to the realization whatever I tried to pull off was quite mundane, and just plain stupid as often as not.

I just noticed you have a preview button. I could really use one. Usually allows me to shake my head and delete whatever before it escapes into public and embarrasses me once again. But tonight be humiliated just doesn't seem to invoke its usual sting.

rxtgcp...oh, that goes down there, doesn't it? Wondered why it was just sitting there shaking its head at me.

being humilialated sounds a bit better, don't you think?

Why, yes it does, now that you point it out.
