The effects of gravity

Sumo (相撲 sumō?) is a competitive full-contact wrestling sport where a rikishi (wrestler) attempts to force another wrestler out of a circular ring (dohyō) or into touching the ground with anything other than the soles of the feet. The characters 相撲 literally mean “striking one another”.

The sport originated in Japan, the only country where it is practiced professionally. It is generally considered a gendai budō (a modern Japanese martial art), though this definition is misleading as the sport has a history spanning many centuries. Many ancient traditions have been preserved in sumo, and even today the sport includes many ritual elements, such as the use of salt purification, from the days when sumo was used in the Shinto religion. Life as a wrestler is highly regimented, with rules laid down by the Japan Sumo Association. Most sumo wrestlers are required to live in communal “sumo training stables”, known in Japanese as heya, where all aspects of their daily lives—from meals to their manner of dress—are dictated by strict tradition.
From Wikipedia.

Thus weight is an important factor in the SUMO wrestlers.

Note on my blogging this week …
I thought I was plagued by another virus on my blog until I assumed that I had run out of storage space of my current 53 G space which I had just renewed on 18/11/2013. An email to inform us on the matter shall be greatly appreciated as we, the bloggers, are also business partners paying “storage charges”. There was a clause somewhere that I can seek a refund of some of the USD $90.00 which I paid so that I can upgrade to 100 G of space at USD $ 160.00. I tried all the options but it is not true at all. I assume that these refunds within a month are NOT applicable to foreigners or non-US residents. So, as the best option available I made the final choice of getting the 25 G space at USD $50.00. After 24 hours, my 2-columned format was back to normalcy. Money works wonder! Yes, nothing is free anymore, sigh.

Drape Your Dashboard In Living Color.

More colourful and easier to use the dashboard from today. Definitely, the choice of 8 range of colours was quite difficult but eventually I chose the brown earthly tones. Thanks, WordPress and the administrators for free addition.
