    Need a lot of forearm and wrist strength (and other techiques like shoulder rolling/pressing) to properly arm wrestle. Sheer muscle mass/strength from conventional bodybuilding is not going to get you very far. Cool video of pro arm wrestler vs. bodybuilder:

    There was some televised/PPV type arm wrestling league where you could punch people etc. while arm wrestling IIRC it was called X-ARM or something.

    I need more brown/green/warm toned outerwear. I set up a clothing rack last night to hold my jackets and coats - they're all black/gray/blue. I blame you Styleforum.

    Am starting to think jet is on to something. There's just something really decadent yet also totally sensible about quality knits.

    ... which demand quality jeans, trousers, shoes, boots, sneaks, shirts, outerwear, etc ad nauseum. You can get away with going cheap on base layers, but in your heart, you'll know you''re just cheating yourself.

    I can write a few pages on this topic and would if I had a blog but nothing comes close to warming my cold soul like decadent knitwear.

    It's a sport. Like all sports, a specific set of skills is required. Of course, having the natural physical attributes can give a definite advantage, but if you do not train specifically, you are going to be at a big deficit against someone who does.
