    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.

    You can pretty much tell how they walk. Seriously. I know I sound like a complete dolt but I believe it to be true. Actually, I am a complete dolt, but I stand by it. Anyone ever read that book "blink"? By Malcolm Gladwell?
    "We often joke -- and we really wish it were a joke -- that you will only encounter two basic problems with your 'self-defense' training.
    1) That it doesn't work
    2) That it does work"

    Blink was a really interesting book. There was a lot of overlap in thinking with The Tipping Point.
