    With no small amount of irony, the newest article on the Bullshido home page had the tag line "just because something 'works for you' [feel free to substitute 'for you' with 'once'] doesn't mean it works".

    Ymas has been a little slow lately. I hope someone shows up to tell everyone how legit this is. Or, even better, to let us know how much better this could have been done.

    It's not something I would want to be doing per se, but it obviously worked for this guy. I wonder, How many data points does it take to make a good technique in this case? It's not like you can go around testing these kind of conditions as this was a real incident. Likely a better lesson here is that with speed and commitment, anything that has a physiological basis in reality can work. And as insane as it sounds, kicking a knife out of someone's hand is not 'throwing chi balls' level of crazy. It is just a sub-optimal move. Sub-optimal **** works all the time in the real world.

    I saw a video of a guy running a red light in heavy traffic on a scooter, weaving narrowly between speeding trucks, and made it through unscathed. That is also a terrible idea.

    It did work in this instance. I can't argue that. As far as "how many data points...", I would say that I would be satisfied enough with the documented successes outnumbering the documented failures.

    Sub optimal **** CAN work in the right circumstance, against the right opponent, with the proper alignment of the correct celestial bodies. Hell, I would even go so far as to admit that in proper context, under the pressure of Pascal's wager, I wouldn't​discount anything as potentially beneficial. If I were skydiving and both of my chutes failed, I would flap my arms like a bird until I passed out from exhaustion.

    The robber was obviously scared and not fully committed to a violent conflict and was stupidly depending on intimidation or the video would have been different.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I think the real moral of the story is that you shouldn't cut in line.

    I hope that was intentional. I hate when my puns are unintended.

    It was. It was like a quadruple entendre. You guys are all fucks for not showering that one with up votes.

    I'm a **** regardless, but I concede it worthy of an upvote.

    Congratulations, a random **** on the internet thinks you're clever.
