Klingon Style


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Ha! That cave is looking pretty lonely now, huh?! :wink:

I heard my seven years old singing "Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh" !! I asked him where he heard it and he gave me an odd look and said Gangnam Style. I think I officially moved into old fart territory.

One guess what the origin of the terms "Jazz" and "Rock'n'Roll" is.
Some of the greatest songs songs in history are about it.
I don't think you need worry.

Unfortunately, with kids the right [wrong] age, I get the beat/phrase and three seconds of it is annoying, and three seconds is nothing for a 10-year old -- Daisy, pray your kids are under the same rock as much of our group...

I wasn't referring to the sex part, but the having no clue where the song line came from. And that, despite the fact that you'd already alerted me to its importance.

Too late. But probably good for them.

Unrelated to Gangnam, my (almost) 3-year old started singing "Hey, baby! Let's rock and roll!" the other day. Apparently, this is related to something her class is doing for their upcoming Winter Variety Show... or at least we think so!

The only take-way there is: any heavy exertion, especially when out of shape and/or without proper warm-up, can kill you.

Which is why I gave up shoveling snow from my driveway years ago.

It seems the Olympics were not the only thing that inspired a generation last year:
