Anyone know what this is?

Post by DeafinONEear » Tue Jun 03, 2003 8:27 pm

I downloaded this movie (~1.6M) and I can help but keep watching it... anyone know what it is?

A google search on "cupping" with a bunch of different modifiers yielded nothing.

I saw that girl on daytime TV. It is some super stupid white trash X game reject sport.

It is a timed thing, where the (dork) who makes the most pyramids in the allotted time wins a voucher good for one free trip to the crab leg bar at the sizzler or something. totally wierd phenomenon...

i've seen all sorts of regular tame videos with neat stuff like this happening with stileproject written on top... the first time i saw it i went there thinking i'd find all sorts of other great videos showing people breakdancing in the air while set on fire or something........... you know, excellent stuff. but instead i remember almost rolfing up, yuck, that place is yuck~

i did some research, apparently the sport is called "cup stacking" and there is even a major website on it:

http://www.speedstacks.com

apparently they even have a page talking about the benefits of being a cup stacker:

http://www.speedstacks.com/sport/benefits/index.htm

and for only $200 you can get the stackmat and tournament display! http://www.speedstacks.com/store/products/403.htm i cannot wait to get one for my bedroom.

and anyway, here is a link to information about the girl that is in the actual video we saw: http://www.speedstacks.com/news/spotlight/emily.htm

and OH SHIIIIIEEET... there is even a major worldwide association! http://www.worldcupstackingassociation.org/

Well it figures the big money had to come in and ruin the otherwise innocent sport that was fast approaching being America's new national past time. And thanks to cassembler for reassuring me that I am not the only one with a dirty mind.
