Nope, I meant what I typed...
/ver'b*j/ n. A deliberate misspelling and mispronunciation of verbiage that assimilates it to the word `garbage'. Compare content-free. More pejorative than `verbiage'.
As opposed to:
1. overabundance of words
2. the manner in which something is expressed in words; "use concise military verbiage"- G.S.Patton [syn: wording]
He definitely did NOT have an overabundance of words, nor use a technical mannerism with said words. But his words were garbage.

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

There are so many guys out there trying to get into this sport, they don't need to give people a break for the ones that might **** it up. That's all this sport needs is some guy getting brain damage for a little **** talking that goes with the game. His crime wasn't for holding the choke for too long, it was for gleefully stating that he wanted to. Rio, hell, the world is full of guys that can fight, I'm sure they can find a replacement.

CSM definitely has complications but they are rare - estimates range between 0.17% and 1.0% of those treated. Typically the type of problems CSM induces are strokes with some cardiac problems and are transient with most people making a full recovery. The mechanism for stroke is the disruption of plaque on the artery wall and for cardiac arrythmias stimulation of the vagal response. Given that the population who receive CSM are typically older (late 70's is average) and not in the best of health the risks for younger people who are in good health are probably lower (this article describes one study looking at complications).
The interesting thing about CSM is that one should not occlude the carotid artery when carrying it out. That suggests that pressure probably plays a more important role than duration but since the technique of CSM involves rubbing the artery the shearing force may be of greater importance than compression force.
Given that chokes are compression attacks that would suggest that they should have a lower risk than CSM. Anecdotally that seems to be the case as there appears to be nowhere near even a 0.17% incidence of stroke following choking in judo, BJJ or MMA. As an interesting aside if shearing is a factor in increased risk of complications from choking then a poorly applied choke where someone is able to move their neck while trying to resist would be more dangerous than a well applied one that is sunk in tightly. Given that all the choking fatalites that have occured have been as a result of their use by someone who was probably not terribly skilled against people who may have resisted extremely vigorously it could be argued that that is the case. On the other hand I could be talking bollocks.Failing to become awesome since 1976
