I was thinking back to PE lessons at school for some reason, and I thought back to the lessons we had in the 'gym'. Of this, I think the most annoying of all the activities was 'climbing a rope suspended from the ceiling'. Why in the hell did we have these? You could either do it or you couldn't - we were never offered any form of rope-climbing classes - and it was just a waste of time for people as lazy as myself. I reckon those that were naturally good at the ropes have all gone on to become the sort of person who spraypaints their name on the signs above motorways.
I much preferred the crash mats, which me and my other rhythmic gymnasts practiced our forward rolls on. Great days.
My favourite ever PE moment was the fat lass doing the hurdles. Probably cruel, but watching her (and she was a big unit) waddling down the track not even making an attempt to jump the hurdles and simply walking into each one, stopping to watch it fall, then stepping over the remains of the shattered hurdle and doing the same to the next obstacle, has just made me giggle to myself.
Funny PE stories? Anyone?
I know this thread isn't great, but it's a vain attempt to clear some of the shit off this page.
