The secret is out
In a discussion on Qajaqusa a little while ago, a well kept secret was revealed - one of the deep fundamental reasons for exceptional rolling skills, kept secret by a select group of initiated. The truth was revealed when an observant man discovered the very obvious statistic correlation between rolling skills and grey beards - and was further strengthened when one member on the forum testified that amazing things started to happen when he forgot to shave a couple of days.
So the secret is out. Unavoidable I guess in the long run.
But what about Freya, Cheri, Alison et al? Sheer luck I guess...
