Oh my! I didn't think there would be many other people who know what nordic skiiing is....I have to explain it to everyone who asks, "No...it's not just forward and backwards on the skiis...it's like skating...."

Although I find nordic skiing to be the hardest sport in the world

Nordic skiing? That's a silly name for it. I'd just call it cross-country... Anyways, being Norwegian, there's no way I couldn't be doing it. I wasn't aware of it being hard, though.
I'm a communist. Really.

I just looked outside my window, and there's no snow. So you're obviously lying about this whole thing.

Nordic was the original name

And its definately hard. You have to be in TOP physical shape, and practice your ass off to have the right technique. You need to be aerobically fit and strong as hell.

Your sarcasm detector broke. Wait...maybe mine did too.

I wish I could participate in this, but I don't really have the chance/time/skill.

Never heard that name. Oh well. How long have you been skiing? Or rather, how old were you when you started? It's part of the culture in nordic countries - here in Norway kids learn to ski before they learn to ride bicycles. Or used to back in the 90s, at least. I think there's much less of it these days...
