    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    is it just me ..... ?

    This may sound like a huge generalization but ....
    ...Is it just me or does the MA world seem filled with former school-yard bullies (especially here in the states)?

    any thoughts?

    thanks,

    MAuser

    No, most of the MA world is made up of the skinny nerds who were beaten up by the schoolyard bullies.

    well, you did ask 'is it just me' so you reap what you sow, I guess. And I gotta agree with them on this one; none of the guys who do MA's here fit the steriotypical 'bully' mould, so I guess maybe its just your school?

    I don't see a lot of ex-bullies involved w/ MA...but I am one! :)

    To be honest...I like fighting...and I have found that MA allows me to fight w/out going to jail.

    I think that is worth my $50 a month fee!
