I was going to point out that pulling can result in deformity and, unless you keep your wrist straight, one of the many Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTD - used to go by the moniker of "carpal tunnel") which will, regretably, make pulling later in life difficult. As a forty-something year old guy with nearlyl 20 years on this, my second marriage, I can tell you that pulling is more important in the grayer/balder years than it is when you're young and single. That's no lie.

Recently I've learned from my son, a young guy...college student...that you can avoid the CTD by *pushing* instead of pulling. I believe he refers to it as "rubbing one out." And NOW you, as I can, see why it's the younger generations that bring us our leaders in our brave new worlds.
