Before I start, I apologize for the thread title. It sounds stupid. Or pretentious. Or both.
I was just wondering when any of you pull off something physically smooth, would you chalk it up to practice or technique? It could be a perfect dive, manuevering out of a dangerous hydroplane spin, landing a new bike trick, hitting someone with a solid WWF style drop kick. Whatever I'm just curious if you assume a lot of control in all of this, or does it kind of seem like luck? I've pulled off some cool things, but I kind of wonder if I'm actually any good.. they just seem like they happen. Like instinct almost. It's like when someone is about to drop a plate and you slide in and catch it. Are you really that cool, or did your hands kind of think for you? Personally, I think I've just been lucky. My mind goes blank in the process of some of this stuff. Maybe people are right. I'm not SP. Maybe I'm some kind of fraud with a little luck on my side.
