    wel, I happen to have a serious bone defect. To give you an idea of what commonly happens to me: once I was walking when a felt UNBEARABLE pain. When I looked at my foot it was...twisted; like my toes were all turned and facing one way, the rest of foot another. I could feel the bones in my big two moving around and pressing agaisnt the skin. After 10/15 minutes..it fixed itself.

    Turns out, all through my life (and there is nothing the docs can two) my bones will randomly dislodge themselves all over my body, pushing on other bones. Its happened in my finger, feet, neck and jaw. When I walk for more than 5 minutes, I can feel stres on the arch of my feet, I can feel the bones pulling away - it's both extremely incomfortable and painful.

    lol. Just wanted to make it clear that I CANT play badminton. Though I played when I was younger, I was advised to stop playing sports altogether (I played football/spccpr, badminton, basketball tenis etc).



    lol, but yeah- I fall into number 4 . Sorry for the life story :P

    ouch, i'm sorry to hear about your predicament.
    well, at least you've found a place that provides you with the resources to watch the sport, even if you can't play it.

    True Dreamzz. I wasn't very good anyway now I simply have an excuse. Though I do miss it. I can play very casually for 10/15 minutes at a time, so I wont complain.

    I'm obsessed with badminton.
    I play when I can.

    Hmmm I guess I'm more of a #3. I crazy about badminton, I play at least once a week cus I don't know that many clubs in Mississauga. And I am interested in international tournaments, but there's no tournaments or badminton/sports tv programs that shows badminton in Canada. Plus watching it on youtube kinda ruins my interest. I prefer watching the tournement in person. Kinda gives you the motivation to improve
