(****, why would anybody want to communicate even remotely like that? Is there some badge-of-honour thing involved in coming across like a blaxpolitation-film retard?)
Well, at least you know what "self-identify" means. One day, inshallah, you'll be able to afford the total-transformation-to-white-girl procedure. Worked for the King of Pop--and you won't even need any surgery.
You're not allowed to think this: it would mean we actually agree on something. We both agree that can't be allowed to occur.
Some members of an NFL team came by the club a year or so ago, and I discussed this with one of them. He said that they know what the risks are, even with pads, but are made to feel obliged to go harder than they really want by management for just that reason: "You get all these millions, so go get your neck broken; that's what the fans want to see".
Just like proper spinal alignment is necessary to inflict (and survive relatively intact) an NFL head-to-head hit, wraps in boxing aid in keeping the wrists more stable for more penetrating impact through the target, as opposed to unsupported wrists. This you, of course, will already know. It also aids in mitigating effects of a hit in cases where the wrist is not 100%-perfectly aligned (which might happen in the case of an opponent with good head-movement).
No worries there. Your *ahem* status is secure. Nobody else would ever want--er, be able to attain such levels of purity. Pure is one thing you most definitely are.
True, they did refer to you as "uncle Q"...except when the police and childrens'-aid were anywhere nearby. Be thankful: it's the only reason you are still allowed contact with your family.
There's such a thing as 200 proof dog-semen? Well ****, you learn something new every day...
It's what we in Normandy called "trail mix".
It might have been nice of yours to go on the wagon when she had you in the oven. Oh well, too late now.
You might want to stop posting your "Uncle-Q" stuff. Your relatives can still get restraining orders.
If it were self-evident, denials wouldn't be necessary. Not to worry: nobody sees your down-low, nobody tells. Besides "honey" from labs doesn't count, 200 proof or otherwise.
I thought you were the ****. Oh, that's right: you're aiming high--to be the **** you want to kill. Just don't leave a mess, okay?
No, but receptive-greek sort-of makes you European.
Somebody called "DW" called. Wants to know if you swallow.
There was a time before the no-headhunting rule came in, and some KK orgs are returning to inclusion of it in the ruleset. This is what I'm told at any rate. Been out of that scene for a while.
When I was in DJ, the fucking things fogged up within 30 seconds. Apparently, they're better now. The only protection they afforded was against surface-damage (when you're in Japan, going to work all marked up is a no-no). Like other helmets, however, they do not protect against the sudden head-displacement resulting in a KO (which is why you see KOs in DJ vids), because the neck is not stabilized by the gear.
The ruleset trained for favours more a more generalist approach to fighting. If a non-ground-trained boxer steps into a DJ bout with me, it would get "extra real" in a different way. Different rulesets, that's all.
No ****, really? I was referring to relative frequency of such occurrences, not to some kind of 100% absolute lack of variation in outcome.
Agreed. Protection does not reduce risk 100%. Nobody said or implied that it did...just that they afforded some risk-reduction.
I do club, remember? I see that stupid ****--and the resulting injuries--all the time (and sometimes the assailants involved didn't even have any training). However, busted hands are also common as **** when they collide with heads. Either way, I call it "natural selection".Originally Posted by Goju - joe

How did the barenkuclee thread turn into quoteblock weenie rubbing?
OT: John L. Sullivan's face was clearly protected from scarring by his epic 'stache, your comparison is invalid.

Yeah, Jesus **** nuts, I can't follow all your quote ridden tosh. Sort it out.
On another note, this exact topic was raised as a question on QI tonight (the game show with Stephen Fry as the host, the legend). Fucking hilarious show, first time I've watched it and this came on, his figures were that in the entire documented history of Barenkuclee, there has been only 2 deaths. Apparently in the first year that gloves were introduced there were four deaths in America alone.
He also quoted a Milton (?) regarding gloved boxing (paraphrased from memory), "There have been many deaths and injuries in boxing since gloves were introduced, but fortunately none of them were serious."GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

Those two were just really good examples on either end. Klitschko is a dang artist! I honestly didn't feel great about using him for the tomato can pic (because he is certainly no tomato!), but DANG, he just happened to also have one of the gnarliest looking pumkin heads in boxing history. (IIRC he won that match though...)
