    The little critter is so cute. He can barely keep his balance with that big racket. And those little steps...

    How does one tell if his serve is above the waist or not :D

    That is quite scary.
    The kid has better hip rotation, racket preparedness and forearm pronation than half the adults at my club. :eek:
    His footwork to the rearcourt isn't up to professional standards yet, but I suspect that will improve when he outgrows his pull-ups. :rolleyes:

    Get his autograph now (if he can write). It will be worth something when he's world champion in 15 years.

    Guess I didn't post it in this thread but if you remember the crazy Russians standing on the ledge of some insanely tall tower structure and consequent vid of the SKytower in Toronto ... this is related ;). Back to Russia ... http://www.eenvandaag.nl/buitenland/40780/russische_roulette_op_extreme_hoogte_

    Translated text, no vid possible but basically it's about living life to the max, extreme/making the most popular, daring vid. The kid that get's processed and picked up by his father, turns out the father just got out of jail for murdering his wife (assume the boy's mother). So much for a rolemodel -.-
    Later on one older kid, apparently a medical student, is teaching beginners some techniques but slips on his own descent and loses his leg :eek:

    And yes .. I already saw quite a few of the (trainsurfing) ones from India and Indonesia and probably elsewhere in Asia ;).

    Ahh, but can she ride a bike? :rolleyes:
    It's amazing what human beings are capable of. I just hope that this kid has a life outside of piano.:eek:

    With that type of hand-eye coordination, she can probably do a unicycle without having to learn.

    Immersed in a world of their own, they are just as happy not having experienced what normal people do in their daily lives.
    Probably don't know nor care, if they have no time to stand and stare.

    Here is one where she was a little off. It was a rare find. The critics had a field day [​IMG].

    "... is 16 year old (15/12/1995) phenom Yoshihide Kiryu running a (legal) 10.19 100m. in November. Improving on his own unofficial already youth wr. for 16 year olds, also better than Yohan Blake at age 16 ran". But Blake already ran 10.11 not long after turning 17 and the unofficial record for 17 year olds is 10.09 by Darrell Brown of Trinidad & Tobago.
