Sam, you have me in splits. I like the way your top floor works. It must be all the bass you hear from your sub mixing up those neurons and nephrons

In any case around that time, hero-type people used to also wear gloves with cut off fingers for breakdancing. Some even wore it for weightlifting. Sometimes they would wear just one on the right hand and walk with someone who would only wear a glove on his left hand.

I guess if you could breakdance and lift weights in your car while driving, gloves would be useful.

P.S. If you do the moonwalk while driving, does that become brake-dancing?

Sam,Technically, it is illegal to wear gloves during weight lifting.
Ur lift will be claimed "bad" by the judges.

John: Micheal Schumacher, the F1 driver..

Well I haven't met Sam in person. Just seen snaps. Even then, trying to visualise Sam breakdancing with white gloves, sleeveless vest and 'shorts' and sandals with flailing hair has me in splits ...

Idea - Sam can we have some orange JBL branded perfumed gloves pleasse ..

Ok I think I've annoyed him enough ! Back to the topic. And no, never used gloves, though during my biking days did eye the 'hero' type cutout leather gloves.

Well...I do wear gloves while driving and I have found it to be quite useful when i drive aggressively on a dirt track for practice for instance and this is something that I do very often. Regarding the usage of gloves for city driving, I sometimes use gloves there too but not very often. They have their advantages for chaps with hyper hydrosis and other interesting forms of discomfort.

Hey, I was wondering why no one mentioned guys with Hyperhydrosis. Its been only a few weeks since I have started taking my (dad's) car to office. Now, I am severe case of hyperhydrosis. That means my palms sweat more than my armpits. Imagine my discomfort. My dad often complaints how wet and oozy I left the steering wheel and the gear lever. I always use gloves while riding. When the AC is on, my already wet hands become cold too. So I was wondering if there are any stores that sell decent (or branded) gloves around Ernakulam. I searched in amazon and ebay and couldn't sight anything interesting. So any suggestions?? Help me, maybe??
