I've generally got the power, not sure about the balance. I'll have to try some of these.

It's a pose held at the top of a push-up essentially (I've also done planks on my elbows, but I guess that's not the way it's done in yoga). It's a core strength exercise.

The thing to remember about any strenuous or intricate activity: You are always going to look like a useless and uncoordinated idiot at first. This is a universal rule unless you're some kind of prodigy so don't stress out when it happens. Focus on learning it so that the problem goes away in time.

If you try the chair pose thing, be careful that your backside sticks out and backward so that your knees don't bend out beyond your toes. Otherwise that would put unwelcome stress on your knees. You can use arms as a counterweight for balance to start with. If can't get down very far at first while  maintaining proper form, so be it. It will take time to build the required ability. Be patient with yourself. Practicing against a wall at first can help you to learn how it should feel.

It really is worthwhile having an experienced coach or mentor help you with form the first time you try these kinds of exercises. It can genuinely be hard to tell whether you have it right, such as in the example with Hanners and her not very level arms, until you are assisted by someone who can watch your form from the outside. And if your form is bad, there is a genuine risk of injury in some cases.

This is a universal rule unless you're some kind of prodigy so don't stress out when it happens. Focus on learning it so that the problem goes away in time.

And even if you are some kind of a prodigy, you'll still look less impressive when you start than an utterly untalented person will after they get just a bit of practice.

Learning always wins over raw talent, with enough time and effort. Always. And that's a good thing! Without talent, one may or may not become amazing at something, but most anyone can get *competent* at most things, with some hard work.

Interesting, that Yoga workout bears a strong resemblance to part of my Karate workout.

Congrats Hanners. You‘ve successfully let out all of your stresses and let them vanish into the air. You‘ve reached nirvana.  :-D

I find fart jokes very amusing (if done right). It's one of areas where I shamelessly allow myself to be a not-particularly-bright ten year old.

In the far distant future when humanity has evolved so far that we no longer have intestines or any associated biological requirements, there will still be fart jokes.

Quote from: Piet Hein
To many people artists seem undisciplined and lawless.
Such laziness, with such great gifts, seems little short of crime.
One mystery is how they make the things they make so flawless,
Another what they're doing with their energy and time.

I think with artists specifically, a large part of creating something is effort that is not readily apparent. It happens inside the head, so it looks like "nothing". And when something is actually being done that other people can see, it looks effortless (with thousands of hours of practice/learning spent to "get there" being in the past, as is any conceptual work done), so people just conclude that it happens "on its own".

It's not exactly an artistic endeavor per se, but if I got paid for listening to every annoying person I've met that thinks translating things is basically just "you know a language passably well, and you just type for a while and the translation is done", I wouldn't have to work as a translator in the first place. I dread to even think what BS actual writers have to listen to.
