    I had a book about the Lin Kuei, the secret clan of Chinese assassins believed (at least by the author of the book) to have been the beginnings of Japanese ninja clans.

    It featured nuggets like a series of slaps, pokes and rips intended to deafen your adversary, gouge his eyes, break his jaw and rip his cheeks open from mouth to ears.

    The photos depicted the opponent literally standing upright with his hands hanging limply at his sides as this was done.

    I practiced it.

    I was thinking of the perfect action movie... starring me. In my movie, I leave the bitch behind after I destroy the computer that overrides the self destruct sequence. I'm far too hardcore for emotional attatchment to wimmins.

    That a really hard palm strike aimed at the bottom of the sternum could snap it off, and the protruding bone behind it would stab directly into the heart, with instantenous death

    oh, and that montages were necessary in all martial art flicks.....coz you know, even rocky had a montage....

    My friend loaned me some Steven K. Hayes books...

    I firmly believed I could become invisible by using the ninjitsu techniques contained therein.

    I now accept that I was dumb and impressionable, but in no way invisible.

    White paper my ass!
