    The Slow Lie

    I keep seeing people post about how going slow helps your technique. It doesn't. The thing that helps about going slow is that other people can see what you are doing, and correct you. That is it! :)

    I Love Me Some Karma

Her mother knew me and set us up, but she loved him and after four months she kicked me to the curb and went back to him. One of the issues that made their relationship so bad was the heavy drinking. Long story...

    I didn't know this was going to happen.

    When questioned on faceBook, I admitted to voting for Obama, and was instantly un-friended. Dang, I thought we were friends. I only voted for him because my boy, Nader, wasn't on the ballot. O_o Sean

    Spinning Back kicks.

    So I was taught that the spinning Back kick is simply a reverse close kneel, look over your shoulder, and kick; however I have also seen them done as a pirouette with the kicking leg cocked high. Which one do you advocate? or do you see them as two useful concepts? un-useful? Sean

    I live across the street from a Good Will drop off point, and I can't tell you how many times I see people using it as a Good Will pick up point.

    Herniated wrist

    I did this at work but it could have just as well happened in class. I over strained my left hand and now part of the inside of my wrist is resting just outside and sort of on top of my hand.

    Dumb Question

    OK I gotta know. I have read The Catcher In The Rye years ago, and I gotta tell you. I just don't see the big deal. John Lennon's assassin had a copy on him; so, he saw something in it. Movies have been made with this book as the big reason why everything has happened; so somebody please tell...

    So you look off to the right and see: an old woman, the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and a viable Republican candidate. You decide to wave at them. Which one waves back? . . . . The old woman. The other three are only figments of your imagination.:)

    Just curious...

    If we are trying to cut teachers salaries, because, they don't have classes during the summer, and our children are falling behind the rest of the world in math and science, why not run school year round? We could hate the teachers less and teach our children more. Its a win win. Or we could...

    I got to experience the shock knife the other day. Its shaped like a knife but the cutting surface is lined with little bug Zappers. It feels like a cat scratch or tattoo, and it leaves a mark. It makes practicing on eachother seem a little more realistic. I would recomend it. Sorry if there is...
