All I'm thinking about is an older video of Bubsy trying to get on Heidi. XD Lmao I would link it but she may eat me.

Stillbetterthanmethough.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

So I thought of buying a bullwhip and practice... is it something I can learn or does it require some help, b/c it is way cool. I'd love to learn!

I will totally crack myself in the face, lol.... Let me ask another question.... How long do I need to do this in total secrecy in order to avoid being made fun of?

I actually self taught myself. Although I had a little help from my brother and father who have been doing it for years.
It's all about rhythm, change of direction, and knowing where the whip is.
In order to get the crack of a bull whip, you need to change the direction of the whip at the last moment. The popper at the end of the whip moves faster than the speed of sound, therefore breaking the sound barrier and making the pop.
I know, it sounds complicated.
What I'm getting at is that the key to making the bull whip pop is the change of the direction. The faster the change, the louder the pop.
