UN, Cuzco. 9/10 on TT FJs.
Slightly less trouble than typing it myself, but mostly it feels better.
I generally start out my "FJs for the x week" by quoting MarkBarrett and stripping away the evidence of such regardless of whether we've performed similarly, because a) let's face it, we usually do perform similarly, and b) he puts a single space between his smiley codes, which I prefer despite its not making a visual difference, and which is annoying to do manually on my phone (where I usually do my posting).

This was exactly my result as well. Danged short-term memory glitch made me forget the NATO conversation of not very long ago.

I could get into a lotus position but would never walk again.

I never heard of "criss-cross applesauce" until it was uttered during this tournament.

Just how old are you?

I'd never heard the term "criss-cross applesauce" until a few years ago. Just not something you're ever going to hear unless you have kids.

I'm also surprised a few people have said they're not sure if they can do lotus position. You're telling me you're not even going to try?

Crap. So are YOU going to be paying this orthopedist bill for me?!?!?

I thought "of course I can do lotus position" but I just tried and I can't do it anymore. :oops:
Like most (all?) things physical, it gets harder as you get older.

And unlike most things, at least for me, it never got any easier with practice.

Thanks for entertaining my request for this poll question, Mark.

I use my hands to lift my feet into position
If there's YouTube video out there of somebody getting into lotus without using their hands, I don't want to see it.

Some things must get easier, right? Let's see...I've got throwing your back out. Anything else?

When I was a kid, "criss cross applesauce" was called "Indian style", which I doubt persists today for obvious reasons.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Ok, I won't link that one but another that might make you feel better. Columbo cries "UNCLE" (from about 36:10).

Look how masterfully he pretends to be inflexible! Way to commit to the role, Peter Falk. (raises glass)
