    I am amazed by the longevity of this thread.
    A while ago we had a Valova & Vasiliev thread, which didn't last long.
    As for a thread someone started who was about to conduct a statistical analysis of quad jumps, you can count the number of respondents on a single hand.

    How exactly is it amazing?

    Beating on a dead horse = FUN
    Statistical analysis = BORING

    I'ts like me saying I am amazed everybody is talking about the same few skaters despite those placed 20th and below at Euros being infinitely more interesting (kinda hard to talk about skaters you've never seen I guess).

    And OMG, it's amazing how people can discuss the lifestyles of inbred celebrities instead of meditating on how witchcraft trials are used as means of social control in the Central African Republic. What is this world coming to?

    Etc. etc. etc.

    tkaug started a similar thread last year but I guess it didn't catch on as it only lasted 8 pages: Fumie Suguri failed to qualify for Japanese Nationals 2011

    It was so obvious too. Eew. Hate bad sportsmanship.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    I just can't believe she did that in public as a prefecture representative.
    She is a 32-year-old adult and some of the competitors are even teenage students!

    Look at her behavior here in front of other younger skaters.
    There are some skaters she doesn't hug with or clap.
    I have been saying for years that Suguri is literally the spawn of Satan. In spite of my endless searches, I have never been able to find proof. Until now!! Bless your heart!! BURN IN HELL YOU FUMIE-DEMON-SKATER!!!

    I'm not fond of Fumie's skating, I admit.
    But every time I watched her in Exhibition, I thought she is better than in competition, I mean much more enjoyable to watch, seems to be much more happy... And I don't understand why she wants to continue to compete. She could be so good and much more interesting in shows.

    Has Fumie considered switching counties? She hasn't represented Japan internationally for a couple years, so she shouldn't have to worry about the Soldatova rule.

    She did a pretty kickass 3lutz in that SP clip. I, for one, would think it would be awesome to have a 30-something international-level skater, and if she brings the bitchy, even better!

    And the longer she competes, the longer a lot of people get annoyed, I'm happy.

    Plus, I love her sparkly booty shorts! She just needs to re-use her old COP programs at this point, though.

    Suguri don't need no Suzuki's hugs of mercy! She is the true ice queen!

    They're from the same club/prefecture, so maybe this event was organized with a '2 per prefecture' rule?

    You accidentally wrote that Fumie should switch "counties", and I was thinking... how would that help? Until I realized.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    Did EVERY skater in the event shake hands and hug every other competitor?
