and what i'm curious to know is: how on earth did YOU find the time to actually just be doing some browsing? (for those who don't know, azlan, who is our webmaster, lives about 3 lives all at once.) - or did you trip over this, while purposefully looking for something else? Image

Grace, to answer your question, I volunteered to be a subject at the Roslin Institute*.<P>However, the copies of me are not as good as the original. Therefore, if you see a post by "Azlan" that's off color, that's not the real me. Image<P><BR>*The scientific institute in Edinburgh that cloned Dolly the sheep.

Maggie's physics thread reminded me of this thread. I wonder if these simulations follow the laws of physics.

I think that nobody can do what the little electric ballerina do Image Even exceptionnal dancers, none of them is so perfect. But it's not so bad after all. To me, to dance is to try to get close to perfection. It is a kind of 'motivation'. But I know that it will never BE perfect Image<P>Maybe you already made a thread about this before, but what does dance mean to you? <P>I like the aesthetical aspect, the fact to give life to a music, to control all my moves... I think it is a very complete art. <BR>

To my mind - perfection would be boring. I like to see a human being dancing, not a perfect dancing doll. <P>Someone recently said it much better than I in a post - and I can't remember who or where it is but....this person said she likes to see the dancer dealing with gravity - not a wispy thing. It's an interesting propostion, I think.
