This thread is full of win ... hehehe thongs.
This has rarely come up for me, but I can think of a couple of occasions. In the first instance I was as sober as a priest. And like some people here, I just stayed silent. I always figured that if I didn't have something nice to say, I wouldn't say anything at all. And when I smell bullshit I'm generally not thinking of telling the guy how much he impresses me with his stories.
The other time I was drunk and somehow got caught up in a conversation and the gentlemen in questions was telling me how 'his friend' could stop an armbar easy, by pinching the achilles ... and I said "why wouldn't you just break his arm at that point!?". I had only been training for a few months at that point too. Still baffles me.
Dookie Ride sounds like a new 10th Planet technique.
nah, eddie bravo learned it from me. it's a 69th galaxy jew jitsu technique. if do right, no can defense.

i need to read that book. outliers was amazing.
please expand on the "way they walk" diagnosis.
Blink was a really interesting book. There was a lot of overlap in thinking with The Tipping Point.
