When I was a kid, if anyone missed practice, the coach would rip their heart right out of their chest and drop it on the ground. The kid would have to pick up his own heart, reattach the veins and arteries, stick the heart back in his chest cavity and sew it up using a spare shoelace. Then the kid would do 500 pushups and run a mile in less than 4 minutes.

180IQ: So... What the hell is a "bear crawl"?


That's what I wondered, then I decided their sadistic Asian coach actually meant to send them to Dunkin Donuts.

I am 90% convinced that you're out of shape and live a sheltered, coddled life. It's always the softest people who scream about toughening up on Internet forums.


You're just a sissy.

Back in my day the coach would regularly hold "penis inspection days". He would make us strip naked in the sport shack and do pull-ups in front of him after greasing ourselves and the rod up. If any of us falls he would start shooting bbs at our junk and beat us with a pool noodle until everyone has zebra stripes of red on us.

Naturally we had to keep it a secret from our parents and other adults. Even back then society was too sissified with snowflake syndrome to instill discipline in teenagers and couldn't process coach's ways.  But man did we build character with him.

Honest Bender: This isn't a death camp.  If someone is telling you to do something to the point of physical injury.... STOP DOING IT.  Unless that person is going to cause you bodily harm => the harm you'd otherwise do to yourself.


Exactly.  This is why the whole "statutory rape" thing is just a crock of shiat as well.

Just because one person is just a kid and the other one is an adult authority figure doesn't mean the kid can't exercise the same kind of informed and clearheaded judgement as an anonymous internet commentator after the fact.

Imagine how a bear walks. Now imagine a supple, milk-skinned strawberry blonde teen girl who developed early walking like that, with her ample posterior toned from sprinting bobbing up and down in the early summer heat.

QT_3.14159: I think the workout is a great idea and a good punishment (though I'm not sure it should apply to someone with a Dr's appt).  Next time they should just supply work gloves for those who do them.


first of all, no kids really need doctors appointments. it is just some bullshiat excuse to skip something.  if you are sick, you go to a doctor and miss a week. no one is ever, NEVER, sick for one day, and you dont go to doctors unless you are sick, really sick, not just flu or cold.   That said, if this biatch really had a reason to go to a doctor, WHAT THE fark IS SHE EVEN DOING AT PRACTICE ? damn, western civilization is turning, has turned, intoa bunch of whining pussies.

Injuring your athletes doesn't build strength, it doesn't improve endurance, and it doesn't develop skill. What it does is teach people to accept abuse by authority figures as normal and acceptable. Citation: this thread.

tlchwi02: I had coaches whup on me for years, and I never had a blister the size of a squids eye on my hands. this is creepy


I'm puzzled by two things here: one, is a backwards bear crawl like doing a crab walk... and two, how did these kids do whatever this is to the point of the injury in the picture? I mean, the blisters look like they tried to grab the headpiece to the staff of Ra. I mean, wouldn't self preservation kick in? These kids must be hard core.

Fark Me To Tears: FTFA: Most of the track team members, though, said they stand by the same coaches who doled out a painful punishment.

"These coaches care about us so much. They didn't intend for this at all," said Solik.

(*sigh*) If these kids really believe this nonsense, then they got what they deserved.


Word. Kids should be born with enough inborn knowledge to be cynical and possess deeply-rooted mistrust of everyone. If they failed to be born with all of this experiential knowledge, then they obviously deserve any and all harm and mistreatment for not having previously known better. Just like all victims of abuse and violence. ...am I doing it right?
