    question about Arrows and east and west

    Just use the 'find' feature of Your browser. Since the whole glossary is loaded on one page, the functionality is essentially the same.

    A one-cartoon page calender 2005

    I think we got Your point, bennyloh. And I also think we got more than a bit tired of "Arso-san". Won't You do any funny pictures anymore instead of trying to sell one of Your worst pieces en masse? Sorry about the rant, but I really did enjoy Your earlier works.

    Japan-TV: New Sumo Commercial

    Now I finally know how to pronounce Tsuppari! (Hugging...) Anyone recognizing the two guys?

    Kaio yokozuna shoshin?

    Hehe, You're probably right there. (Hugging...)

    Le Petit Banzuke lllustre "6

    I'm fully aware of the risk to repeat myself, but: Great Work! (Hugging...) The statistics about weights and heights per division are particularly interesting. Strange that Juryo has about the same weight as Makunouchi, but is significantly shorter. With veteran Fujinawa dropping to Jonokuchi at 215.5 kg, has there ever been a 200+ Jonokuchi rikishi before? Browsing through the banzuke pictures, I noticed Hakuho's kesho mawashi for the first time: Does anybody know what the romaji letters "SOD" stand for?

    Can't make any sense of it, illiterate me, but the drawings sure are awesome! (Applauding...)

    Please tell me that's a fake! Please... (Applauding...)

    Just before ShoroiKuma gets to answering, maybe we could try an educated guess for ourselves by watching the last bout won by Hagiwara over Osh in Natsu 2004. (courtesy of banzuke.com) Hagiwara didn't look all that convincing in July though, so their next meeting will tell whether he can still handle him.

    Science & Sumo

    @Iwagakki: Are You sure that You did get the point of the study? They didn't want to compare rikishi with ordinary slobs, they developed a method to calculate their body density without immersing them in giant tubs. Could be quite useful, if only for statistical reasons.

    What do You think of Ama then?

    Science & Sumo

    It's not British, it's gibberish, the international tongue of scientists. Once You get used to it, it's not really that hard to weed through. (Like some kind of fancy clothing for that matter...)

    Quite interesting stuff. What does our very own physician Kaikitsune think about it?

    who has got the prettiest wife?

    combined? (Clapping wildly...) I don't think Kaio would consent...
  16. Jakusotsu


    Tokitsuumi of course! This guy is so handsome, he even has two voting slots. (Now if I only knew which one to pick...hmm...going for Tosanoumi instead (Clapping wildly...) )

    How about copying it into a word processor of Your choice? Just an idea...

    Your old fella' is actually much younger than every other Sanyaku (except Asashoryu of course).

    Happy Halloween...

    This must have been on Nakabi of 2004 Haru Basho as Maegashira 8 (look at the number), when Takamisakari mistook the tawara for the salt bucket and tried to throw pieces of straw all around, getting completely entangled, oshitaoshied by Kokkai and put on display for the rest of the day to please the crowds. They wanted to put Kokkai on his shoulder too, disguised as a black crow, but the Georgian was too busy counting his kensho.

    I don't think toughness of bones is an issue here, it's those soft things inside that turn to jelly. I faintly remember a medical study about football (soccer) players. Those who didn't do much headers in their career did significantly better at IQ checks than their bump-happy comrades. I only suffered two minor concussions in my life, but judging by that experience, this severe head-knocking stuff can't be healthy at all.
