    Ironically, the most "authoritarian voice" in this thread - by an order of magnitude - is yours.

    I've met people who believed the former. I've never once met a person - inside or outside the martial arts - who believed the latter.

    Another fiction I've never heard put forth. If it's not real, does that make it a fictional fiction?

    You've left out the other possibility: that it's not a martial art claim, at all.

    Given the rambling nature of this thread, I don't think much of anything would qualify as a side track.

    So,

    A) this is a fake and should be ignored

    Or

    B) the real McCoy has a penchant for nonsense, and should be ignored.

    Same outcome.

    Nope. Double negative, therefore fictional fiction would have to be fact. Like when my students like to say “I’m not doing no homework this weekend.”

    The fact is there is so much fiction and it is not worth much time or effort.

    I disagree. Going by the definitions, if something is fictional it means it has been created and only exists in the mind (i.e. it is not real), so in order to fictionalise a piece of fiction you are literally taking a piece of fiction and making more fiction out of the previous fiction. By doing so you could move either back towards reality or even further from it.

    Recognizing this is a joke -- let's not forget that challenge posts are forbidden by The Rules here at MartialTalk.

    Exactly! Like adding to negative numbers does not give you a positive total.

    Of course it's a joke and of course I don't plan to fight anyone on here and if @Frank Dux sees this then I meant no offence or disrespect and of course don't want to fight anyone it was a comment made in jest when I just woke up and if there's any offence taken i apologise
