This is all you do here. You passive aggressively latch onto some aspect of a comment that is immaterial to the actual discussion.

Obstinate, silly opinions are fine on a forum. De-railing literally every thread one participates is really not the same thing.

I put a pool noodle on a stick for a while lol. It works, but I did end up getting a used basket and it is much more fun to throw into actual chains.

Practicing every day will be more important...

In my opinion, anyone with a principled, disciplined approach to a skill would be unable to utter this kind of nonsense.

I certainly don't recommend using the smaller holds at first, but my hangboard has rounded holds at the top that are easier on the hands than a pull-up bar. I think most people could do something...

I disagree with this completely. Effort is what everyone assumes they should concentrate on by default. It is by far the most natural way to try to throw far.

So far, if I could isolate one thing that is guaranteed to produce a horrendous throw, it would be this. One of the first analogies I read when researching the backhand was the popular 'lawnmower'...

Ezra is so fun to watch, but he makes me feel bad about myself. I half expect his next video to be "How luscious hair, a crisp sense of style, and general badassery contribute to drive distance".

Apparently I hold and pour a coffee pot like a neanderthal. I do understand the reference though and lock my wrist in the described position.

No, there is more nuance to what was being discussed. The back-hand hatchet throw was a demonstration of a further nested analogy of throwing a ball in a strange way.
