    I "do" Hapkido. I must admit, I have heard bits of bullshido spout from my instructor's mouths from time to time, but never anything like this.

    A person can touch a certain area and unbalance a person's health energy and cause illness and maybe eventually death.
    If i spat at my finger and rubbed it against your peritoneum, you probably would get rather ill in a relatively short time, this however would require some instruments as my knife hand has been a bit rusty lately.

    I recently read about a swedish study, in which the acupuncture used in local pain relief actually increased the suffering of the subjects..go figure.

    The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), for example, considers acupuncture a "valid modality" and its "techniques should be regarded as surgical and/or medical procedures." The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) also considers acupuncture a valid modality and has formed a Task Force on Therapeutic Options to consider the value of acupuncture and other practices.

    They don't really even have to be "fine" needles. I got to have a chat with someone from Atone Pain Tribe, a performing troupe that does suspensions, fire eating, and various other freakities. (For all of you who are unfamiliar with suspensions, imagine basically taking a meat hook, sticking it through a large hunk of your skin, and then hanging yourself from it.) She said that it hurts like a bitch for the first minute or so, but after a while, it stops hurting, and an intense natural high overcomes you.

    Mind you, this isn't in support of accupuncture, just a point of interest about sticking things in people.

    And I thought my nutting fridges etc made me tough.

    What a woman.

    I think I'm in love
    What am I?:

    I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.

    I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

    That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:

    Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.

    My friend got to meet the Enigma, Katzen, and others from the Jim Rose Circus - he said such carnie folk are a kick in the ass.
