comment Arm compression sleeves for climbing
@Charles: You rightly said *when the compression of the cuff exceeds your blood pressure, blood flow below the cuff will stop", and then you said, "It doesn't have anything to do with increasing blood flow through the arm".. Personally I find that it has got all to with the Blood Flow, and I was trying to prove a point about effects of Compression on Blood vessels.

@ben: And, obviously, if its blood flow that is not only applicable to a climber, but also to some Fast Bowler as well.

@Ben: Oh, my bad. Probably that line doesn't add much to the answer anyway.

Oh, right: Benedikt is right about arteries and veins. Deleted the line that doesn't add much to the answer, anyways.

@BenediktBauer: See the edits, I was having a word with my sister while I was typing, I knew the end result about Blood flow, didn't know the HOW part of it so couldn't add up the complex data then and there itself. Hope it answers the question now.

comment What is the best mountaineering quote that you have ever read?
@Everything: Makes sense. I got into some serious mountaineering when I was 17 and I think the credit goes to the mountaineering books that I read just out of curiosity. Some of the quotes inspired me a lot, some incidences (written in books) drew me mad about mountains. This was where I began..
