    Did anyone else immediately get up and try it, or just me?

      Hello Yabs,

      I did that as well so I am guessing that is probably the universal response. I also tried to see if I could fart and chew gum at the same time just to be on the safe side.

        There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

            My guinea is, thankfully, used to my strange shenanigans.

            I am surprised to find I can do this quite easily. I sadly suspect it is more that I have a pretty good sense of balance than that I am particularly fit or healthy.

              Yep, I tried it straight away!

              I managed it fine, but don't think it was a particularly elegant performance!

                  Thanks, Ms. Diddles,

                  Next up, seeing if I can smash a beer can into my head and belch at the same time. Chicks dig that!

                      I have to remember to work that into my dating profile.

                      By the way, how is you outdoor friend doing with her adventure reading?

                        I'm not sure what she's been reading lately as she's been off on a jaunt around Europe.

                        I suspect she has been too busy whilst away living the adventure to have much time for reading.

                        I recently got some pics on WhatsApp of her getting stuck into a Spanish sherry distillery, so I think that the focus of this latest trip is largely food and booze based.

                          I’m too lazy to stand on two legs so there’s no way I’m trying one.

                            Do you have to do the 10 seconds all at once, or just over the course of the day?

                              i could have done it for much longer but my wife said it was hurting her leg, so i stepped off.
