Liam, it doesn't really matter. If you do discharge, I recommend a 1C (equal to 300mA) discharge down to 7.4V. That'll drain the battery to about 20% remaining capacity, which is a good safe discharge limit. Then charge as normal.
When someone is intent on excelling in an otherwise laudable manner, does he not desire to inflict pain on others by means of his exalted status and enjoy the envy he arouses? Is there not an anticipated delight in an artist's ability to defeat his artistic rivals, which heightens his euphoria in creation?
