I weigh 100 lbs and I can easily piggyback a 140 lb person. I've done some partner aerials and whatnot. Whether the LW can do it depends on what kind of back problems she has.
Contact improv is CREEPY.

You assholes have no idea how lucky you are. I live in an ugly, sprawling college town so dumb that when you see a cyclist in the bike lane, it's even odds that they're GOING THE WRONG DIRECTION. It's terrifying and makes me explode with rage. When I used to bike to work, I would shout at the wrong-direction bikers or lower my helmet and bear down if they didn't immediately yield. I got in a fight with my ex when I said I would bump them into traffic if they didn't move; he said that was unethical.

I can't fucking get away from reddit. It's not some obscure corner of the internet, it's the fucking Front Page Of The Internet. President Obama was on reddit. My ex-boyfriend was on reddit all the goddamn time, seriously, almost every time I walked out of the bathroom at his apartment he was glued to reddit on his computer like it was an electromagnet that turned on every time I left the room. And he's 29. I go out with another guy who's in his 30's and also hopelessly addicted to Reddit. These are otherwise smart, more or less evolved males with halfway progressive views on gender, but they uncritically suck down all that sexist poison, and it shows. Every time I hear about what a shitty, hostile place reddit is, I get mad at these guys for loving it.
