Arm Wrestling

Who loves ya, baby?
Any arm wrestlers in here? I won't ever do it as I just have visions of someone busting my arm like Goldblum in The Fly.

I've watched a lot of the pros on YouTube. In my drinking days I'd regularly goad people into arm wrestling each other in the pub. There's something about it I really like.

I once convinced a particularly spindly mate to arm wrestle a bloke who was into martial arts and about a foot taller than him, dunno why he agreed.

3 types of arm wrestle.

.im stronger than you bosh!
.I know a trick you don't know bosh!
.then the interminable wars of attrition only the evenly matched can have. Stupid pointless establishing nothing. A contest of wills prolonged long past the point of absurdity, boredom, irritation

A guy on my MA is super into arm wrestling. He competes at quite a high level but I can't remember soecifics. He was talking about it becoming an Olympic sport which seemed v unlikely to me. He's a former climber and jacked needless to say.

Corpse is serious about bodybuilding. His biceps are the size of my thighs. He would be the Champ.

It's the idiocy I really like. And it taps into this primal but ever present thing, physical strength, power, domination. This repressed awareness, this fear.

I enjoyed this scene in the recent Twin Peaks series, although Mr C has somewhat of an unfair advantage, what with being a demonic spirit in human form.

I'm not exaggerating much. Youre easily the henchest man here. I've watched heaps of Devon Larrat videos. Dunno why, it's not actually that thrilling.

Yeah - same goes for other exhibitions of strength, really. Even if some bloke's pulling a Boeing 747 with his teeth it's fundamentally visually boring.

You can't really communicate strength visually, except perhaps in combat. Yes, that's it - the effect of strength. If the effect is that a big heavy concrete ball has been lifted onto the top of a plinth it's not ver impressive.
