re: number XIII:
as told by Dan “Stork” Roddick
The most powerful force in the world is that of a disc straining to land under a car, just beyond reach. This force is technically called “car suck”.
The higher the quality of a catch or the comment it receives, the greater the probability of a crummy throw. (Good catch = bad throw.)
One must never precede any maneuver by a comment more predictive than, “Watch this!” (Keep ’em guessing.)
The higher the costs of hitting any object, the greater the certainty it will be struck. (Remember: the disc is positive – both cops and old ladies are clearly negative).
The best catches are never seen. (“Did you see that?” – “See what?”)
The greatest single aid to distance is for the disc to be going in a direction you did not want. (Goes the wrong way = Goes a long way.)
The most powerful hex words in the sport are “I really have this down – watch.” (Know it? Blow it!)
In any crowd of spectators at least one will suggest that razor blades could be attached to the disc. (“You could maim and kill with that thing.”)
The greater your need to make a good catch, the greater the probability your partner will deliver his worst throw. (If you can’t touch it, you can’t trick it.)
The single most difficult move with a disc is to put it down. (Just one more.)
