    Ah, Robert Heinlein! Reading Spaceship Trooper always reminds me of my infantry bootcamp summer. Good memories in my case :) My favorite quote from him is this famous one: A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a...

    Self defense - TKD girl avoids kidnapping

    All right. Now I'm sorry for having shared that story. In the future I'll refrain from posting non MA technical stuff. Hopefully I will avoid creating threads that end with such stupid debates. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk

    Self defense - TKD girl avoids kidnapping

    Doesn't look like it. She was bruised. Also, why would you suggest something like that? Although it is always a possibility, this is rather dismissive of a young person who, for as much as we know, has been brave and fierce enough to defend her person. Maybe her life.

    It seems you are right. I didn't get that he was released only a few hours later. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk

    Self defense - TKD girl avoids kidnapping

    The main suspect was released today without charges after a few days of detention and interrogation. I guess they might have arrested the wrong guy. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk

    Self defense - TKD girl avoids kidnapping

    A kidnapping was thwarted in Quebec City because the suspect did not know who he was messing with. On Sunday afternoon, the victim, a 13-year-old girl, was exiting a cafe on Champlain St. in Quebec City near the Cap Blanc stairway right behind the Plains of Abraham when a man grabbed her by the...

    If there is a doubt, there is no doubt. It means trust your feelings. If you feel something isn't right, it means something isn't right. I like this quote because in a civil society, we learn to repress our feelings, discard or distrust them. However, if we learn to connect with them, we can...

    That's only avoiding the problem. I find it is always better to deal with problems with other people in a direct, honest, and respectful manner. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk

    Funny fight stories

    I'm 5 feet 8 (well, 5' 7" 3/4, really). The only time I decided to piss off a guy was in high school and he was 6' 4" hehe. Smart move on my part! It escalated a bit and he pushed me. I just shoved his arms away and two teachers passed close by. One said "Hey, no fighting!". That was it. Best...
