 I couldn't be more jealous. Years of trying has netted a best of about 20 yards. Balls.

 When you can do it, it's not really the liberation, or sheer joy you'd think.

 I guess I shouldn't be such a bummer, but I find in life, there's things people can do, and nobody's really exstatic. Certain people can do certain things, and that's that.

 @Kramz: most people that can’t do what other people can do, can often come to do it just as well through just the sheer nature of tons of practice. This isn’t any cosmic mystery
