    have you ever watched women volleyball match?

    how many jump smashes in one match? 100 or 200 or 300 maybe?

    how many jump smashes in one women badminton match? 1 or 2 or 3 maybe?

    I certainly have and I want to know just as much as you do why the female players are not using the jump smash except for a few. May be it is a case of the jump smash not being "energy-efficient" ( the returns is not worth the energy used), being executed from the back court or the three-quarter court area as compared to the volleyball spike which is usually executed near the net. However, once in a while we do get an "iron hammer" like Lang Ping who do it from further back. Anyway just take what I said in (just for laughs) as "just joking" which was my honest intention.

    Then you should ask a question like exactly what you just did-why don't they use their legs to do jump smash like male players do?

    Laughable comparison. Volleyball is 6 team sized, net is higher, ball can be touched 3 times, etc. Why dont you ask table tennis and tennis male players to do jump smash?

    When I joked about how females do not climb trees like the males I was actually trying to attribute the lesser number or absence of jump smashes in the females’ games to their weaker physical strengths and femininity.

    I think Celeng understood me and was only reminding me of how the fairer and supposedly weaker gender (not aware that the 3 letter word "s*x" is barred) can rain down spikes after spikes in the game of volleyball. I personally do not think that he was trying to equate the two sports or was trying to compare an orange with an apple, so to speak.
