In the movie Richochet with Denzel Washington and Jon Lithgow there is a prison swordfighting scene (or something equal ridiculous) where they use phone books for armor.
Being 14 I really wanted to try it out. Unfortunately my brother and I couldn't track down enough copies.

Wow, just brilliant. My hat is off to Kickcatcher.I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
"Step away," I hissed.

Phil's response reminds me of the response of Social Text in the Sokal Affair.
As much as I hate it, Wikipedia has some good info on what it is <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sokal_affair">here</a>.--

Should this be mentioned on Wikipedia? I just checked back there and someone has added a couple of positive quotations about Phil.
One of Elmore's non-traditional instructors characterized him as "a good student" of "average to above average ability" who "picks up concepts quickly and is good at applying them."
"Since Phil Elmore has been my student," stated Dan Donzella (one of Elmore's traditional instructors and his current teacher), "he has made steady progress in understanding and using the Chuan-fa/Tjimande systems. His power and technique have improved steadily..."Best Vietnam War music video I've ever seen put together by a vet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDY8raKsdfg

Phil's official rebuttal to Kickcatcher:
Good ol' Phil."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

The problem with the left (much like the problem with the right) is that they each contain their right nutjobs, and good debate is often hindered because the nutjobs are unfortunately very vocal. Sokal's stated intention was that he wanted to reclaim the "intellectual left" from charlatans like postmodern professors and show that there are leftists who still believe in objectivity and the classical liberal values of Mill and Locke.--

Phil's rebuttal is just plain pathetic. Does he really expect anyone to believe him? The guy is delusional.
