Michael Grab has mastered the art of stone balancing. He explains how he does it. “The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of “tripod” for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. In the finer point balances, these clicks can be felt on a scale smaller than millimeters. Some point balances will give the illusion of weightlessness as the rocks look to be barely touching. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.”
I still have full faith in Usopp and I know he’s going to make his way back there and confront them but maybe not as Usoland but as Sogeland. You’re going back there even if I have to drag your body back there. Obviously he already forgot about Robin because if he knew she was a toy then I know he’d fight for her. If you think about it from Usopp’s perspective, he could be dying for strangers. Sure they’re in this together but when it comes down to it all, they’re not his nakama. Luffy’s a pretty good example of how it’s always nakama first. Any other favors he does are just because they’re along the way. And to Luffy, an alliance is basically sealing your blood as best friends. That’s why he’d go so far for Law and because they know it’s such a corrupt kingdom.
