Save my life from what, exactly?
Uptalk? Ain't that the name of a telecom company? And yes, I do identify white girls from time to time. I like to identify them tits, the knockers, the ta-tas, the chest cannons. Nah I'm sayin? **** yeah!, son!
Ah, yes. I heard a New York linguist referring to this as "uptalk". You can probably look up the term. Apparently, "uptalk" is a principal means by which white girls self-identify. Is there something you'd like to share with us? I mean, it's okay--we're not here to judge...
I considered this at one point, and this is what I thought would be the major thing leading to the high preponderance of spinal injuries in the sport. That fucking helmet turns the head into a end of pendulum, fucking swinging about the neck.
Which is why I implied that it would never happen. Dispersing force of impact over a wider area, pads help protect against blunt-force trauma, but offer no protection against any form of torsion injury. Also, domes add weight to the head, increasing the load on the neck in such cases as a body-to-body impact hit: the extra mass attached to the head causes it to snap around on the neck, as a result of such a hit, even more forcefully than it would otherwise.
Also makes the sport far more entertaining for bloodthirsty Americans.
At the same time, however, the blunt-force-attenuating effects of padding give players a general impression of being less vulnerable, rather than just being less vulnerable to blunt-force trauma. This, despite the fact that they are at least as vulnerable to deep-tissue and torsion injuries as unpadded contact-sport participants. This can make them less careful with their hits.
My point was that I think that **** is all about training and technique. When motherfuckers in MMA swing for the fences they are clearly not giving a **** about their hands. I've competed in both boxing and MMA, albeit breifly, and when I swing, I fucking swing. My main concern wouldn't be the fist, but the wrist. And when that **** is properly aligned one aims to go through motherfuckers.
You've doubtless seen the different nature of the punches thrown in MMA versus those thrown in, say, boxing. How much of this is due to gear and how much is due to the more generalist training regimen of an MMA fighter (versus the more specialized training regimen of a boxer) is another matter.
Betta recongnize my status, mayne. I run **** (no, not diarrhoea). Abbott and Costello used to call me Uncle Q. We exchanged material, they wrote some **** for me. You know, for Q. For Q, son, for Q.
No doubt you also wrote Abbott and Costello's Who's On First script as well. "Your" Falk-U. routine is about as original as that. You are indeed the motherfucking boss.
Interestingly the highest J. Wray and Nephew go up to is 63%, which is nowhere near 200 proof. The only time I ever had 200 proof was from my the lab. You ever had 200, son? That's chemically purified 100% alcohol, son. That's what we drink in the hood.
Please, show a little national pride: go at least 200 and call it Wray & Nephew. Thanks in advance.
Perhaps your Francophonicity is stopping you from keeping up with neologisticness and my flexible linguistic skills (and no, I don't mean my skill in performing oral sex on babes, although I'm pretty good at that **** too).
Here we go again. Once again, Q, it's "xenophobe". You'll never get into that much-sought-after (by you) position in your local white-supremacist group if you insist on sounding all greek-philo to your fellow-white-sheeters. It just won't wash. Capiche?
************ please, I don't file, because I'm no clerk, and I'm no fag, or phag or whatever (I like the honeys). You should also know that I commit coprocide, because I be killin' that ****.
Meanwhile--and yes, we've been over this as well--in your case, it's either "coprophile" or "coprophage" (or, in your specific case, both). Looks like we'll just have to keep going over this until you get it right.
At least I'm not French.
So...not fucking English up as much as the Americans means you speak good English? That's like saying you run better than a dead person so you're marathon-grade.
Pride? Dude, Pride went out years ago. It's all about the UFC now. And yes, I'm trying to get into that cage (no bondage).
...I have no doubt you figure prominently in Pride events worldwide. We won't let your aforementioned white-sheet brethren know until you're ready to go public, okay?
****. Lucky you. I masturbate to Daido Juku videos sometimes. Since when does Kyokushin allow head punching? And in DJ, don't you use helmets with face protection? Face protection is as good as hand protection when the helmet is soft.
Since most of my striking matches have been KK in Japan (headhunting allowed, but bareknuckle) or Daido-Juku (same country, more headhunting, sometimes with minimal hand protection), I've been happy with knuckles-to-cheekbones and chin-down to both protect the sweet spot and align my spine properly.
Also, you need to remember that people trained in KK or DJ will not be at good at putting hard, fast punches together as boxers. Not to say you're a ***** or whatever, but sometimes **** gets extra real in boxing ring.
Definitely. No argument there.
With the above-mentioned kind of hand protection (if any) opponents slamming fists into the top of my head (pretty much the only above-the-neck-target they have) have done little more than break some of my skin while more often breaking their hands.
Damn right, because everyone knows you're a *****.
That's not me claiming to be all tough and ****. It's just that, in a collision between an unprotected hand and the top of a human head supported by a properly-aligned spine, the relatively-small bones of the hand will break first.
But boxers have fractured their hands with 10oz gloves as well, sometimes that **** just happens.
Would that be the case with the greater protection afforded the striker via gloves and wraps? Dunno. Maybe not.
Likely not, but gloves still mean you have to keep your wrist straight and not hit hard places too often.
I sure as hell think so. This is going to be an even more important discussion in the future when technology gets further and further ahead. They keep making lighter football boots that let motherfuckers run faster and kick harder. Perhaps the same will happen with gloves, but then again glove technology hasn't changed too much in the last 50 or so years.
Question: do you regard gloves and wraps to be PEDs (Performance-Enhancing Devices)? I do not speak of "cheating" here, since both participants would be similarly-equipped. However, if a puncher can bang harder with protected hands supported by stabilized wrists, does that not equal PEDs? Just curious.
But here is something interesting about padding though. In 1983 there was a famous fight in which Panama Lewis, the coach of Luis Resto removed much of the padding from Resto's gloves. In this fight, he beat the **** out of Billy Collins and tore his iris causing him to never box again. Resto never suffered any hand injuries. And he was wailing just as hard. (Now there is some dubious **** about him covering his handwraps in plaster of paris, but that aside...) Less padding didn't result in less wailing on this occasion. And what of the facial fractures and eye injuries that will definitely be more common in barenkuclee?
