    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The Steamroller

    Q: What is the Steamroller ?

    A: One of the "realistic and practical self defense techniques" explained on Grandmaster Romano's website.

    Q: What does it look like?

    A: Well, it finishes like this:


    Q: I assume the attacker, whom the caption describes as "ready for you to apply the submission hold", is the man who is about to get repeatedly elbowed in the back of the neck and then choked unconscious?

    A: No.

    Q: Wait, who's Grandmaster Romano?

    A: Well, he is "widely known for inventing the Romatron, a billy club keychain", $11.95 each or $24.95 with an instructional video. Next question.

    Q: Doesn't the Romatron look more like a sex toy than a defensive weapon?

    A: Yes.

    Q: So, are there more of these useful techniques online?

    A: You bet!

    Or, more effectively, a rear naked choke.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    Wow, for a second it looked like the guy was just rolling up the defender's body, headed for side mount (having just gotten past his open guard, uh..... complicated, he was standing, guy on bottom was laying back with legs open, anywho, someone understands me)......

    Then I noticed the arm, what the **** is he trying to do, lose?

    Blegh, fool monkey.

    Edit: having just checked out the guy's techniques page...... good lord that's bad.

    bad bad bad badbadbad

    It gets worse. Look at his "Limalama" stuff. It brings hitting a static opponent 20 times to new and sexy heights.
    Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:

    1) I am STRAIGHT! I am STRAIGHT! Get it through your thick skulls, numbskulls!

    2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.

    3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

    REMINDER: I am still the one and only true creator of sonichu and rosechu electric hedgehog pokemon
