    Interesting... voice...

    I listened for an example and an explanation of a way to defend yourself. I would have really settled for any explanation of a rational effective technique as that was the claim made. Instead I got a lecture on how "Guns don't kill people, People kill people".

    Incidentally, the damage done from a toaster accident is burnt toast, while the damage done from a rifle is a dead human being. WTF was the toast example about? He said "yes you're more likely to have toast if you have a toaster, yes you're more likely to have a gun accident if you have a gun, but the gun doesn't shoot by itself and a toaster doesn't make toast by itself" So what?

    shorthand EMPTY hand. Half that crap was about guns and the american legal system and how unfair it is to not be able to shoot hippies on sight. The other half was digging into the issues of using fear as a way of marketing something we don't even get an example of or any info what so ever.

    I'm really glad I don't live in america. Don't get me wrong, I liked it over there, but the people would drive me nuts. I have enough crazy to cope with over here, and we're pretty placid.
    More human than human is our motto.

    For some reason, I imagined his voice would be something like this. I like how he says "we can't always be armed" when he and many of his cronies ALWAYS have at least 3 pistols up their asses.

    Well, studies show the ass is the safest place to hold a gun....


    Of course those studies were warped and ultimately relate to nothing other then toasters and bad reasoning.

    I actually liked the talk about Bernie Goetz, who should have just finshed all of them and kept walking.

    I actually agreed with alot of the points he made about stats touted by gun-grabbers as well.

    But all of it is tinged with this throbing claxxon in my head that just goes "BUT HE'S KNOWS DICK ALL ABOUT FIGHTING YET WRITES ABOUT IT."

    I wonder if he's considered the effect forcing SHEH out there is having on his credibility as an author.

    Well I listened to the whole thing and I have to say that Phil was much more reserved in his views than he is on his website. However, I do find it strange that a man who repeatedly says that he “never clams to be an expert” then writes a book on self-defense, which is an act that by its very nature implies expertise or mastery of a subject.

    I have never clamed to be an expert at Judo therefore I do not write fu*king Judo books!!! Or try to teach self-defense to others, as I know that I would just get people hurt by giving them a false since of confidence without any real skill. Anyone who buys into Phil gets confidence, but no ability, which is a dangerous combination.

    Phil can't even reach his ass. How the hell can he put a gun there?

    Was that voice standard issue with those glasses?

    Having read all the previous comments, I'd venture: No.

    Edit: He said nothing for 15 minutes. Nothing. SPend the time staring at the wall, maybe you'll have a mystic vision or something.
