While it may be the case that 'cracking' your joints isn't very good for them, everyone (except salachair, Bris and Ian) loves to do it. This idea is for a newly-invented 'ancient' martial art/ exercise regime/ yoga-esque meditative technique based entirely on cracking your joints.
come from the books and videos explaining how to get satisfying clicks and crunches from every joint possible. Experienced practitioners will have coloured headbands to wear and be able to click every vertebrae in their backs individually.

||In ancient times, there lived a master who spent 60 years
in solitude practicing the art. It is said that he could
crack every joint in his body simultaneously, emitting a
sound which could be heard across mountain ranges.
Today his followers, in order to help fund their
monastaries, perform around the world, entertaining
millions of people annually. Synchronised cracking,
rythmic cracking, combat cracking and crack-dancing are
all part of their exciting performances.
||Welcome to Crackatoa, population, OW, quit that.
||//everyone loves to do it//. Sorry, hippo, but I really, really, *re-ally* do not love to do it. In fact, I absolutely hate to do it. And when I hear other people do it, I want to boak. It is A Bad Thing To Do.
||Crack-dancing. Sounds like something to do with ultra-low rise or sagging pants.
||<cracks fingers, toes, neck, back, knees, ankles and wrists, elbows. smirks at salachair.>
||What [salachair] says and with similar emphasis. I'd divorce a joint cracker (if I had somehow managed to miss the habit during the dating and engagement part).
||You can add me to the list that salachair and bristolz currently populate.
