I just wanted to share this. Found it on the Genii forum. It's a diatribe about the cons of zombie performance. (If you don't know what I am talking about, look in the back of your toilet.)
"If you're going to perform a Zombie, please leave out the move in which the ball seems to want to escape, but is gently pulled back by the mage, who used the cloth to reverse the ball's direction.
Physics dictates that the ball would continue along it's chosen path, while the mage's action would pull the cloth off."
It's so totally true. I Never really thought of it before. It's another Broom in the Corner.
And another brick in the wall.
