    Speed Stacking

    Well I was watching a bit of TV last night and there was a full discussion about the latest craze in the US. Speed Stacking. Wow!!

    I was amazed at how fast these people were stacking cups on top of each other and then demolish their tower in seconds with all the cups then inside each other. How long as this been going I thought? Simple idea and look how popular it is now.

    Anyone tried it? Speed Stacking seems like a cool challenge and totally different that the norm of RPG games and computer games.

    It looks cool allright but I think it's boring.

    They seem to stack them op the same way every time. From what I've seen on the telie.


    Nice blood but the signature rules state that your main signature image may NOT exceed 500*115 pixels.

    Speed Stacking - boring?

    Yeh, speed stacking may seem boring, but when you are pressured against the clock then it probably can be really thrilling. Simple concept I agree, but so is running. Running is boring to me, yet it's an Olympic event.

    I think that this speed stacking is stupid, c'mon there are tons of better games to play outside.

    I don't know though. Running and speed stacking seem to me like apples and oranges. Too different. I understand your point, but even then, can you ever imagine speed stacking as an Olympic Event? And I know that's not your point, but running is an actual athletic competition that one would need to train for.

    Now of course, I don't mean to say that speed stacking doesn't take skill, because it definitely does. However, it's too far away from being any sort of a serious competition. And while it is a growing fad, I would not consider it a craze.

    Either way, I think it's cool... But I can't go any further than that. Someone already mentioned that it is all the same moves. I don't know if that's true, but from the small times I've seen speed stacking featured on a TV show, it does seem to be the same. It's all mundane in the end.

    Here's an example of speed stacking for those of you who don't know:

    Edit: Looking at the picture above... I have noticed that it is mostly children - younger teens who do this speed stacking thing.
