...of "you are sucks" fame? (Last fall's CSU A-meet)

Why listen to him?

I have been trying not to. But when he e mails essays to wake up to every morning, it's kind of tough.

Oh, and is it the same Alexei actually? I'm not sure. Someone else can answer that.

(And I was sucks at the CSU A meet. That Alexei was right there!)

Yes, same Alexei.

Anger is a good motivator, but I wouldn't want to use it every day -- too stressful. ;-) I like Kitch's solution.

Yes, I do too. Rob suggested spam filter - I think he has a good point!

It did help me do my session this morning though, so that is good!

Oh well, if that's required, we can try a different type of pissing-off motivational strategy each morning! I'm thinking along the yo' mama line.

You've changed pseudonym again!

I think your tactic might at least help me giggle through the hill rep pain...

I think anyone in the US who attempts coaching or mentoring or even giving advice will have the "you are wrong; that is stupid" experience from Alexei. It's a rite of passage.

Best solution is to treat the messages like fortune cookies and add the words "in bed" to the end of each sentence.

"You are suck... in bed."

I would like to request that feet and shoe clone have a sparring match of "yo mama" jokes; I would happily donate to the Cheer Feet Up foundation to see such an improbable exhibition.

Yo Mama is so dumb, she thinks the St. Petersburg paradox is a story about two Russian ducks.

Well, yo mama is so dumb, she thinks marginal utility is the utility she gains from eating margarine instead of butter.

I have no idea what the St Petersburg Paradox is, but that still made me laugh.

Ian clearly such a competition should be opened more widely, though yo' mama is so dumb that she thinks that the Wallace Line is what stops Japan from crashing into Russia.

(I can't play this with feet -- his mum's too scary.)
