The key to World Peace by Amarinda Jones...

So, I've been watching a bit of basketball of late. No, I have no idea what's going on 75% of the time but I'm an observer of life and the thing I've taken from basketball is this - the referees hold the key to world peace in their hands. How so? Well, they do this thing when one player fouls another player and the ref get his fists and pound the tops of his thighs twice. There's probably a highly thought out athletic reason behind it but I like to think of it as 'I'm a tad peeved. Please stop pushing and shoving. There's a good boy.'  I like that move. I've incorporated it into my life. And yes, it has confused a couple of people but think about it - angry at someone? Want to avoid a war? Simply face your enemy and pound the tops of your thighs twice. First up, it will confuse your enemy and put them off wanting to beat the shite out of you for a couple of beats due to said confusion and possible laughter. With concerted global effort if we all face an enemy and do the thigh pound thing to get out our discontent then I feel we can avert war - and possibly tone up our thighs. It's a win-win situation.
