    with a good system, the videos look better than most movies. What's not good about interactive movies? Most people i know rather'd be at the cinema than the gym.

    well sure it sweats but prolly several times less than a grown up guys hand. girls sweat less than guys and kids sweat less than grown ups. youre both so i thought sweat shouldnt be the reason your grips dont last long.

    best overgrips i know are head agassi pro grips. since head doesnt do badminton stuff and tennis grips are longer than badminton ones youd need to cut it down to the right length.

    Girls sweat less then boys? where did that theory come out from? And maybe kids sweat less then adults, that might be true. Bigger body, right? Oh, I'm making us sound like animals! lol. I meant, perspire. lol. And I never liked computer games.

    Is that because buys drink more?

    In the gym, girls (I mean the ones really can play, not the ones sit on the bench waiting for their bf) can't finish 1 bottle of sports drink in 2 hrs, but guys can finish like 2 or 3 at the same time period.

    i think its the other way around. guys drink more cuz they lose more liquid and need to 'refill'. girls weight like 100lbs. guys like 170. we need to move alot more mass. were also not as good looking, dont smell as good, dont sound as cute and we cant smile like they can.

    but we do drive better and know how to program a vcr.

    Hahahahahha... A very funny post... Let me add a little bit more:

    - Girls weight 100 lb say they gain too much weight lately; Guys weight 170 say, finally, I am back in shape

    - Guys drive better because we are "forced" to get more training

    - Guys know how to program or even fix a VCR, because girls are the ones sit in sofa, holding a bottle of drinks, and eagerly waiting to watch Brad Pete, etc...


    - Errr... are we off the topic again???

    I've managed to finished drink a 500 litre bottle in 3 hours before.....and didn't need to go to toilet at all! Mum said it was because I sweated it all out on the court. lol. Hmm....was that off topic? Yep, I think so.

    when i play 2 hours i need 3-5 l gaterade dending on the intensity of the game and the temperature of the hall. after ten mins my tshirt is all wet. after 30 mins sweat starts dropping from my t shirt after 90 mins my double partner complains that the court is all wet and makes him slip.
    i just figured im pretty disgusting.
    but after youve been wet and sticky all game being clean after the shower is a really really good feeling.

    oh yeah, hot shower after a game is good stuff man
    i don't sweat much, so i don't change grips often
    and the only time i need to change grip is when the friction from my hand and the grip wears it down.
    i go to a gym for around 5 hours, and play half that time. i don't usually sweat too much cause there is so much cool down time, but i drink about 3x500ml bottles of water plus a sports beverage around 600ml. i don't drink a lot at a time, that way i don't need to use washroom or cramp up.

    Did some research, found out the amount of sweating depends on the person alone. For instance, after 10 minutes of playing, I'm sweaty while some of my friends aren't.
