I think that if 24 hour news existed in the 40's we would have invaded the USSR to stop them from getting the bomb. I bet that would have worked out well.

But, for real, they are always trying to start some shit with Iran. And when Iran is down it will be Pakistan, and then we can start conquering the rest of Asia. 24 hour news is always beating the drums for the next war. It's the only time they get good ratings.

"But Avery seemed to think that everyone in the military thinks a certain way"

I didn't mean to imply that at all.  I just meant that if someone is active duty military I will engage them ina debate about politics.  Regardless of how they feel, I just let them say whatever.  That is just my thing.

I took up chain smoking at the airport briefly during a time when there were PILES of foreign soldiers stopping through town to various training camps around here. About 90% of the lookers would just sit and smoke back when you could smoke in designated glass rooms around the airport. I would always make sure to forget a lighter too. Man those were some lazy, good lookin' days. Can't say as I smelled anything other than Camel Filters though.

tae kwon do sucks, it's a MMA world now and tae kwon do just happens to be by far the least useful. Even generic "Sensei doesn't know what he's doing" Karate is better.

Except in so far as it can be used to teach small children a degree of martial discipline. What I remember from Tae Kwon Do is mostly philosophy and how to count to ten in Korean. I "remember" the jump and spinning kicks, but that's exactly the sort of crap that isn't useful. Roundhouse kick is all you get that's useful and you can get that from anywhere, it's not even as good as Muay Thai knees though.

Tbh, the only thing you really need to learn is krav maga. No fancy battle stances or meditation, no. KM is about ending a fight as fast as possible, even if that means breaking bones of the opponent.

I knew Krav Maga was going to come up. I have a block on that stuff though, because I just think of goddamn Mossad and the goddamn zionists every time I think of it.

Fighting styles are going to depend on how big you are and what your physical properties are. I'm a big guy with a long reach, and I find that for me Muay Thai works better for stand up and I've always been fond of jui jitsu of the Brazilian variety. Royce Gracie gave me my Green Belt, so I'm stuck in love with that one.

KM works well if your name is J Lo, lol. I don't need to end the fight quick, I'm probably not defending myself from someone bigger than me (it is probably instead that they are agressive and have a big mouth, I don't need to start fights either), I just need to know how the spacial and momentum mechanics work (judo or jui jitsu can get you focused on that, although it is Krav Maga's bread and butter I don't deny) and then settle for dropping knees and elbows.

Rob.S.Pierre

I guess for Utah I might go with

B. Yung.

I'm sure that B. Yung the mormon rapper would be a big hit with the right crowd. It sounds like a fun niche market, real crazy. Infiltrate mormon society as a mormon rapper named B. Yung rapping about getting scores upon scores of bitches, and then, when the moment is right, spike the kool aid.

Not so good in texas though. Dammit. What sort of shit is that?

@jf, yeah, it was a long time ago. I haven't done much martial arts in the last few years but when I graduated HS I had a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, a red in Karate and the green. Royce came up to properly affiliate the school since at that time the instructor was not qualified to distribute belts.

@nkwilczy - Where were you training that you got a green belt?  BJJ belts go directly from white to blue, unless there's some sort of weird system that no one else uses.

It was some place in NC, in Henderson called Midnight Blue. I didn't realize that to be the case, and it's been brought up already that this was a while ago. I ended up leaving the place because of some quarrel between my sister and the owner's daughter when I was about... 16 so 2002 was the last time I had any sort of vested interest in the belts. In light of that, it could have just been a kid's belt for all I know.

I still think the mystery secret is totally fair.  Becaue it could suck, but then so could your rapper name.  It's like the mystery box in let's make a deal!

I'll tell you my mother's middle name!  Or...I can tell you something about Taco Bell.  I'm good at that.
