They spend so much time flinging themselves around that their poor little knackers are rather at risk so they just kinda ... shove 'em up somewhere safe. Brill.

The Shaoulin Monks performed a story (The Wheel Of Life) demonstrating a lengend that has been recited for several years. The main purpose was to demonstrate their skills and tell you of how 'The Five' came about.

The Shaoulin Monks oringinated from the Shaoulin Monastry in China and they perform Kung Fu martial arts. They have to have incredible control over their body to perform such moves as well as being able to move with incredible speed and have the type of stamina that come with it.

Cirus act? :roll:

Anything involving people flinging themselves around to entertain is a circus in my view, and that includes Liberty X. Don't get me wrong, I really like Liberty X. When did I lose the ability to post anything sensible on this damn site?

I see... but this is not to entertain us, it was to inform us.

Or you can look at it that I was at a theatre therefore was there to be entertained I suppose.
