We all tend to believe what we want to believe.
I was at my BJJ class last Sunday and we were going over some armbar drills. And our instructor was telling us how he was reading some Kung Fu book, where it said "if a guy has mount, reach up and strangle him".

I thought karate was an event in the Barcelona Olympics?
Odacon: Don't think so dude.
TKD was a demo sport. I don't think they award medals for demo sports, and Tigi would have been a bit long in the tooth to compete at that stage anyway.

"Well, I don't believe you, and I DID look it up... Judo wasn't an Olympic sport in 1968, and Karate has NEVER been an Olympic sport. Ever."
"Uh-uh, you're lying. Liar. How can you say such things about Sensei Mataalii?!"
"What? Dude, are you serious? Your claims have ZERO evidence to back them up! None of the **** you're talking about ever happened!"
"Pssh! I think it's obvious that YOU'RE the one who's the lying liar, not me. How does it feel to have your pants on fire all the time, Mr. Fibber McGee? I hope you ROT IN HELL for the awful things you said!"
"But it's quite obvious that--"
"Lalalalala I am not listening, lalalalalalala!"
"You can't just--"
"<sigh>... I hate you."
