  1. It's Woods, of all people? Ok, fine. Ewww...
  2. Starting this topic, because perhaps there are bibliophiles among us? Low key or high key.

    She's 3rd in FS, but 1st overall. They did try to squash her TES, tho. Smh.

    I watched the Sakhalin event with earphones, the left one was the commentary, so I just took that one off. The music and announcement could be heard with the right earphone. Fingers crossed it'd stay that way. He just doesn't stop, does he?

    You are indeed being pedantic, which is fine. Notice that I never claim the one I posted was accurate either? Or that I never call it an 'accuracy comparison'? Yeah. My point of posting it was so that people can have different information to think about; not just the one seemingly 'official'. Part of it because I am anticipating cooked up comparisons of his jumps to those of certain other skaters, like they attempted last year. Edited to add: Hmm... I sure hope this is only plausible for quads and triples. Cz for triples and doubles, if this is also true, that'd be pretty sad. That said, I would still think that the size of the jumps as you add more rotation have to be somewhat bigger (longer across and higher), with the exception of skaters who rely on rotational speed alone. You either rotate faster or jump bigger. I concede that for the axel jumps, there are all possibilities that it could be as big or even bigger than the one-more-rotation version of the other types (2A vs non-axel triples, 3A vs non-axel quads). I might not know anything tho. I only studied applied math and I sure as hell didn't compute these things.

    and @Old Cat Lady That's why it's a comparison... I find it hard to believe that his 4S will be of less length (and height-the twitter thread counted the height of the jump at 77+cm) than his 3A. I don't really know how Ice Scope works as well (is this the work of Ice Scope even?), but from the picture, it looks like the camera angle is slightly slanted.

    A comparison, since I do not think that's accurate:

    I don't know how she could continue in the sport and make her skating as effortless when battling this disease. Sounds absolutely painful. Makes me even more grateful for her presence every time she takes to the ice.

    Miyahara definitely received favoured treatment in the past; there's no 'if' about it. Oh, I don't mean them letting Uno win over Yuzu. No, not THAT crazy*. It's Uno vs. everyone else. If Yuzu is there and 80% healthy (which is 100% for everyone else), the only ones who will be trying to push him off the top of the podium will be US feds and media. What I mean is, if people are outraged that TP ignored his URs today, be prepared for it even more in WC. Yuzu might still escape it, but your other favourites might not. *I said that, but, ugh. Who knows. With how EC and 4CC happened this year, I might need to readjust my standard for fudging and crazy.

    Yep. And it is mostly the case of things somebody said/did or didn't say/do on twitter or other forums and then people complain about it here. I rarely go to those, so every time things like this happen, I am like "Huh? Where??? Whut??". I tried to backtrack the convo in the thread to see if it really happens here, and it's getting tiring. _____ Boyang, you are the gold medallist, as far as I am concerned. Come back stronger for WC, my boy! Please regain your magnificent Lz! And keep healthy!!! ____

    For the record, there have been occasions where some of us here got into 'fights' over how Uno's jumps are problematic and how mindblowing it is that judges/TP seem to love his intenseTM performance that those problems rarely get called. I am one of those who agreed that Uno shouldn't have gotten silver over Fernandez in PC. Earlier this season, it took me forever (as in I was salty and keep mentioning it even after the event) to let go when Uno got almost 100 pts in SP despite missing a combo. I've been moaning over how JP feds seem to put all their political power over him and that's how he got the scores he always got. There are many of us who are just as critical of Uno as we are of Zhou. Problematic technique is problematic, no matter who the skater is. I am just tired of repeating myself again and again. And is on the verge of being indifferent towards FS as a sport and towards some skaters, unfortunately including Uno. The fact that I occasionally still voice my criticism of Zhou is actually a sign I still somewhat care that he is competing at all.
  15. I really want to stay up for the Pair FS, but... I have plans tomorrow and need to be awake. Ciayo, Sui/Han and Peng/Jin!! Good luck, everyone else. Am I biased or am I biased? Not sorry.

    @Planet Hanyu Staff Just heads up to you guys, this thread is getting filled with comments on comments/complaints/behaviour that most probably took place at other places. I am hella confused with the thread at the moment. Don't worry, I am gonna ignore it. Just pointing it out now, in case it blew up to the point of needing housekeeping. ______ I am off to bed now, so I can at least catch the last 2 groups when I wake up tomorrow morning.
  17. More cute stuff: Mai falling as she left the ice
  18. Audience's standing ovation for Mai after her FS:
  19. So do I, and did the crowd by the looks of it.
  20. I am gonna post the cute things myself:
  21. Did Mai and Rika do the cutesie picture as they did in... err... IDF? Can someone post it here, please? To cleanse the entire event, and start off my Saturday slightly nicer? Please...
