1. Because it's there.
2. Because it isn't a 'sport'.
3. Because I can wear scruffy clothing that doesn't have any advertising on it, and fit right in.

Even if I didn't climb, you'd still be complaining!

You want to sell us tee shirts of our own quotes?

Why does the girl in that picture have three arms and one leg?

"Why does the girl in that picture have three arms and one leg?"

Jerry... that's awesome! What an eye you have and you're absolutely correct. I'm still laughing!!!

Guess you've effectively killed any further use of that "hottie" photo, except maybe for scientific gene-research purposes... Good one.

You know, the last time I mistood a shoulder for a boob was on my first date to the movies at age 14... (my date only had two arms, however...)

Oldest trick in the book for free work...

"submit your ideas...if we like them...we'll use them!"

Um, and for those who need bifocals...that's a knee.

Perhaps its a knee. Perhaps not...

Looks like a shoulder to me. She's a mutant!

Have it as you will. This is better

Jerry, are you saying there's something funny about that pic?

I'm betting that's three armed Valerie herself in the pic.

Shameless self promotion might not be cool to some, but shameless self promoters sometimes do big things too.

And anyway, if YOU could make money off your hobby, wouldn't you?

Wouldn't that be better than a real job?

BTW, Valerie, I think your promotion would go over better, on this site at least, if you were topless in the pic.

Of course, that would obviate the need for a t-shirt, DOH!

Crowley has a sliver of lucidity and admits he doesn't even climb:

"If I don't climb, I get to the point where I cannot get off the ground (like now)."

Ya may want to cut back on your tobacco and red meat intakes. Booze is a killer too. Good luck getting off the ground. What a fraud.
