When I used to go to TKD, there was this person there who I used to be friends with, who started to really piss me off. Anyway, He hurt his back a little and wasn't sure if He would be able to continue TKD.
A part of me felt saying 'OWNED' as if He did quit I wouldn't have to listen to him talking to me every lesson and have him go on about his favourite forms and ****. But I felt really guilty for thinking stuff like that.

Rhamma, believe it or not, what you are feeling is.... (*insert gay gasp here*).... empathy!!!
No matter how fucked up or annoying someone can be, there is no way one can't just switch feelings of empathy when something bad happens to such an individual. After all, he got into it by not being careful... as bad as that sounds, that's what happened.
I think you are feeling guilty that you are enjoying the piece and quiet now that Mr. Nutjob is in not in the office. It just so happens that the piece and quiet is there because the dude is in the hospital. But that was not of your own doing, nor you actually wished it - probably you did fantasize about clubbing him on the head every once in a while, but that's cool. Man, I fantasize about grabbing some of the tards I work with and throw them out of the window on a constant basis... it's healthy since it keeps my sanity in cubicle land.
So **** it, dude. Don't sweat it. Just wish the best for the noisy nutjob, enjoy the temporary peace and quiet at work, and when he comes back, just fantasize how you would strangle him or something like that :tongue3:Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Actually, I do have a story both pertinent to this and to the mission statement of the board.
Ok, I was in the army and it was during the Hand to Hand training from basic. Well, the throws they were instructing us on were ridiculous, and I was just coming off of my stay with my college judo club. So I was paired up with a powerlifter from GaTech and was telling him that they were full of **** and didn't know what they were talking about... which they were and they didn't.
So, this nimrod pvt, 7 years younger comes over and tells me that I am doing it all wrong. I tell him that I was on my colleges judo team for 3 years and that I do indeed know what I'm talking about in this case. Well, he informs that he has a 2nd degree black belt in isshin ryu and that he knows oh so much more about this than me... BTW, we were doing hip tosses... and he further tells me that Judo can't possibly help here because we were training for real fighting and Judo isn't real fighting... isshin ryu however was to his vastly superior knowledge of hip throws...
So anyway, he's walking around telling everyone "how it's done" when a drill sergeant asks for volunteers to demo the throws. Of course, he volunteers like a champ and during his little demonstration he breaks his own fucking leg when the guy he's trying to throw falls on his leg which is turned at a 90 degree angle before he does the throw.
It was a moment of absolute serenity listening to that dumbass howl like a stuck pig.

What is it with Isshin-ryu guys thinking their karate is the **** for military combatives?
Whoever said it first was right, they're the Chunners of the karate world.

A few years back one September morning, someone very rudely tried to drop on me two buildings directly across the street by flying aircraft into them.
They missed me. I survived.
The didn't miss many others - including 20% of my customers. Among those who didn't survive were 28 people I knew very well - including the person who gave me my first job and the one who gave me the initial account to start my business.
I don't feel guilty they missed me. However, on occasion, I do have a twinge of guilt for being slightly annoyed they managed to also miss Howard Lutnick.

Rhamma just hope you're not as annoying as the biker fella but don't know it. You could ask around at the office...
On a similar note, I met a guy who had had a bike accident a few years before, hitting a brick wall upside-down, mostly with his head.
Anyway, the brain damage affected his speech and intelligence, but not his memory.
He could remember being not-braindamaged from before the accident, and could tell me about it. Sad.
But he was still brain-damaged, and slightly annoying.
