Up the spine...

Sometimes the body conspires against us, punishing us for our past overexertions, our moments of bravado, our wills to power, our warped self-images. And while the body can heal, it's creaks and squeaks come and go, we are ultimately voyeurs of our own physical deterioration.

But worse than the body conspiring against our "psychic self" is when our "psychic self" conspires against our body. Not sure what I mean by that? This here clip from the 2007 Miss Teen USA pageant is an example that ought to make you squirm. Poor lass. Public speaking can go wrong in so many ways.
