Haha! Nice...there's another version of this floating around somewhere...

Ah-hah: http://www.capoeira.com/forum_viewtopic.php?2.108362

(Scroll down to Raposa's list posted by Leopardo, that's the best/original one, I think.)

p.s. #18 kind of scares me. XD Though it reminds me of one of mine--"...when you're jogging to capoeira music and try to make your steps match the berimbau rhythm."
