Response to The thing I'm wondering about CD is
Pole vaulters run full speed down the road
holding out a long pole and then they stick
it in the ground and then it yanks their
shoulders out of their armpits and then it
bends and then it recovers and sails them
up over the top of it like a bullet and then
they come down in a sand pit all stretched
out and elongated.
I don't know of another athletic event that's
similar. Maybe that scottish thing where they
run down the road balancing a telephone pole
and then stop and see how far they can throw it.
