    Si mon, I've been there once- I think I bought a Pakistani folding bowie knife and a grilled corn wrapped in foil. I mostly go to the one by the sports arena. My gf lives by the Santee one though. They seem to have a lot of bizarrely specific trade tools where you have to ask what they are, and 70s marlin fishing equipment that couldn't possibly be used anywhere near by. Oh, and trailer hitches.
    There's always a Fair circuit throw back that's 5 years or so behind the times, like the guy doing a demo for quick n brite or the slap chop.
    That's the saddest thing I've ever heard.
    I almost forgot about the two 45 year old guys trying to sell DJ services. Best part is they are apparently using the same equipment that they started with 25 years ago. How much DJ'ing do you need for crappy mariachi music anyways???
    I've never been to a wedding that didn't have this kind of DJ. Hey, they might even have an Oingo Boingo album.

    Complaining about calling them "nunchucks"? Were you the kid that insisted "NO! It's pronounced KARA tay! Don't MAKE me kick your ass- I've got a yellow belt!"

    Pronunciation matters in the martial arts. Especially when referring to "Chinese stars" and "nunchucks".

    And shuriken and nunchaku should be properly italicized as well...

    Or so says some old Asian guys who hears his American students butcher the language.

    Somehow, this doesn't work the other way around though, because to some, butchered English and a heavy accent is actually the mark of a genu-wine Oriental master.

    Personally, I refuse to believe that so many techniques I've learned are correctly called "You do this way".

    You missunderstand. I am well aware that the proper terms are shuriken and nunchaku.

    However, we're talking about the shank stand at the open air market. Those pot metal wall hangers are about as authentic as the names I gave them.

    Is it phonetically pro-nounce-ee-aay-shun or pro-nunc-ee-aay-shun?
