    Really excellent essay on the various meanings of "chi"; the ways in which the word is used to describe everything from mystical life force to efficient biomechanics to ignorance/Bullshido, within the context of traditional Chinese culture.

    That is a damn good read; someone sat down and thought about the possibilities. Not perfect, but damn good.

    Exactly.

    I am yet to see a trick by a "chi" person that a hypnotist can't pull off (or somebody otherwisee trained)
    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.
