    i have been working almost constantly for the last 14 hours and i am so sick of it. so i decided to have some fun...

    as regular badminton players, our bags have tons of items we bring to and from teh gym. but as days goes on, the bag gets accumulated with lots of stuff. you never realize what you have accumulated in it!

    so everybody, open your badminton bag now and show us what kind of junk you have in it. don't omit anything!

    here is what i found after taking out all the items in my bag, piece by piece:

    (approx clockwise order in the picture)

    - bag: Yonex 6 racket bag. so stuff it was about to explode.
    - socks : dirty. probably 2-3 weeks old
    - 3x t-shirt, 1x long sleeve t-shirt, one pair of shorts, one pair of underwear (out of sight) : all dirty, all more than a week old.
    - water bottle : dirty, 2 days old
    - rackets (bottom to top) : 2x cab20, 1x Iso600, 1x AB2000, 2x cab22 (strung), 1x cab22 (unstrung)
    - piece of plastic from grip tape
    - grip tape packaging (empty)
    - two tags from stringer (to mark name and tension wanted)
    - two badminton shuttle tube end caps
    - old grip tape
    - permanent marker (used for shuttle spin experiment)
    - pack of tissue paper
    - pile of Candian coins
    - one Hong Kong $5 coin
    - pile of US coins
    - almost used up roll of BG88Ti
    - cell phone - i lost this nearly 1 month ago, i just found it while i was unloading my racket bag. i am serious, i looked in the bag more than once before and i couldn't find it. the bag was that stuffed!
    - two badminton DVDs
    - half full tube of YangYang 300B shuttles
    - 5 used badminton shuttles (saved up for doing drills)
    - two pair of sweat pants
    - one pair of SHB89M
    - two t-shirts - clean
    - one fleeze vest - somewhat clean

    yes. all these fitted into my badminton bag!

    show us yours! :)

    - 2 tubes of Yonex Mavis 300 shuttles
    - 1 tube of Prizm (Forza brand) feather shuttles
    - 1 tube of Carlton Aerogear 770 feather shuttles
    - 1 box of granola bars
    - 3 racket cases: yellow style MP99 thermal case, Muscle Power case, and one Black Knight racket case.
    - Bag: Yonex racket bag 2224 (6 rackets)
    - AXE deodorant body spray
    - combination lock
    - felt marker
    - "bag of goodies": scissors, lotion, bandages, and 1 roll of gause
    - electric tape
    - Rackets: YangYang Tactic 8500, Yonex MP 99, Black Knight BK-770.
    - pack of Colban self-adhesive support wrap
    - pair of Yonex shb 92 shoes (old but still good)

    Hardware not included in the picture that I usually pack in my bag:

    - 1 Yonex Isometric Ti Swing Power SX + case (in repair)
    - change of clothing
    - full water bottle
    - bag full of grips (about 20-30 of them) (actually, they're in my bag, forgot to take them out for the picture)
    - 1 tube of Yonex areosena 20 shuttles
    - cell phone and "badmintonalberta" handbook with phone numbers and badminton rules.

    I try not to overload my bag with too much stuff so you'll notice that I don't have as much material as kwun or ants (then again...I didn't take the hardware not included in my bag for consideration):D .

    Sorry about the picture quality. I used my webcam to take this pic because my digital camera ran out of batteries:( .

    You guys are either pack rats or simply in lost of space to put your stuff but that's quite the norm with baddy enthusiasts, no?

    As with shiri, I don't have a pic because I don't have a digital camera, but I can really say that my bag really shows the minimalist in me.

    - 1x Yonex 3-racquet bag
    - 1x Yonex racquet, Ti-10
    - 1x Yonex racquet cover
    - 1x Yonex Extreme grip
    - 2x tubes Gosen Gold shuttles (they're free...)
    - 1x tubes of usable shuttles
    - 1x 1.5l 100 Plus bottle
    - 1x badminton/tennis/squash shirt
    - 1x pair of knee guards
    - 1x bottle of Yoko Yoko painkiller (is it a 'painkiller'?)
    - RM0.30 worth of coins

    During games, it'd include the
    - 1x set of car keys (as if it's ever be 2x...)
    - 1x of house keys
    - 1x cellphone
    - 1x pair of clean socks
    - 1x pair sports shorts

    One question to all you people:
    Where do you keep your wallets?

    PS Did you buy a new phone in the meantime?

    Tsk! Tsk! Yonexfanatic! Don't you know me well enough by now to know that I would never steal your wallet;) Heck! I bet that I have more crisp dollar notes in my wallet than yours:D. Jack you?! I got more 'hardware' in my bag than you, so shouldn't I be more worried about being jacked;)?

    Voltaren, eh? :eek:
    Heavy stuff -- that's a synthetic morphine pain killer if I recall correctly. I hope you're not driving to your badminton sessions... :p

    How does Voltaren combat inflammation?

    Voltaren is not really a morphine pain killer product.

    Its active ingredient is Diclofenac which is part of the NSAID family.
    In brief, it inhibits the release of the agent causing inflammation at the area affected.
    By the way, emulgel is quite expensive, i use ketoprofen also a NSAID, costing 4-5 times cheaper. NSAID is THE solution for sprained ankle and other inflammation if u want fast effect. Do not used ointment or menthol rubbing, it does not reduce the inflammation.

    Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are very well tolerated, widely used and are often the initial therapy for common inflammation, such as that which follows a muscle strain or sprain. They can also be used to treat a high fever. They are called nonsteroidal because they are not steroids, which treat inflammation by suppressing the immune system (inflammation is one of the body's healing responses to trauma). Instead, all NSAIDs treat inflammation in a way similar to the mechanism of aspirin, the most well known and oldest member of the class.

    How They Work
    NSAID drugs mainly inhibit the body's ability to synthesize prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are a family of hormone-like chemicals, some of which are made in response to cell injury. The common mechanism of action for all NSAIDs is the inhibition of the enzyme cyclooxgenase (COX). COX is necessary in the fomation of prostaglandins. This enzyme actually has two known forms, COX-1 which protects the stomach lining and intestine, and COX-2 that is involved in making the prostaglandins that are important in the process of inflammation.
