    2. Is it necessary kill a goose for the feathers? Same thing as, we can get the fur without kill a sheep.
    Hey LB - hmmmm... I've not known sheep to grow fur... just wool...

    I guess with the amount of geese eaten in China, that would be okay? But I think you are right, geese can still live even with a few missing feathers. just like sheep can be shorn (shaved) without killing it.

    Something I hate about badminton is all the times I have to yell at the basketballers to "STOP BOUNCING THAT DAMN BALL WHILE WE"RE PLAYING!"

    good point, those pounding of basketball on the floor drives me nuts.
    Also, it is dangerous too sometime when stray basketballs come bouncing or rolling into my court while we are playing.

    another thing about badminton is playing in old multisport gyms where the basketball backboards are manually cranked to pull the up into the ceiling, or have electric motors that pull slower than the a snail's gallop. in our school gym it takes nearly 15 minutes for the electric motor to fully crank the backboards up to the rest position, and the darn switches don't have a toggle so you need to keep holding down the switches (theres 4 of them).

    lol, exactly for one the school i play in.
    the backboard retraction motor is activated by a key which must be held and turned against a spring resistance in order to work. My fingers get numbed after holding the key for the 6 backboard( well, i dont do them anymore)

    wow, but you guys must have really nice high ceilings then? our basketball nets are just pulled towards the end walls, and i've yet to hit the ceiling during a game, though it can be done just hitting up.

    unfortunately, not all retractable basketball net/boards are efficiently designed. Even when retracted, i can easily hit them with shuttles. Even a grade 6 kid could design them better.

    yes, they are very high ceilings, but cooler and I can effortless hit the ceiling with our clears due to our super-human strength and techniques...

    one of the problems with most of the arms or assemblies that move and hold the basketball backboards are that they are just suspended from the ceiling or rafters. usually that means these backboards, in the stored position are dangling from the ceiling, and often nasty at catching stray cleared shuttles.

    as cooler mentioned, most of the design for the basketball gear are an after-thought, and do not care for the requirements of badminton players.

    Yeah, in most school gyms with such systems (and there are many) the retraction is not complete most of the time, and when it is... it's blocked by the motor.

    Baddy clubs = clubs of lonely hearts.

    Yeah, someone told me once how the whole entire gym of guys got distracted by a lovely lady drop-in (she's not a bad player herself). Funny enough, I was there yet somehow managed to missed out on her presence despite the commotion. Probably explained why I had an amazing streak of wins that evening.

    Also, I was given a pearl of wisdom: NEVER bring a date to your regular badminton club. She better be really into you to withstand the constant attentions from the single guys!
