"... On Sunday night, History Channel will present a fantastically detailed special on what, at first, sounds insane, but is nonetheless true: "How Bruce Lee Changed the World." It's something untold millions of Bruce Lee fans have known for four decades.

So how did a martial arts guy, who died at age 32, change the world?

Lee, you'll learn, changed not only cinema -- remember, he produced the first martial arts movies without special effects and turned himself into the first ever Asian superstar -- but music, arts, fitness, martial arts, body building and, oh yes, philosophy.

Lee also invented mixed martial arts -- which is now a multi-multi million dollar industry. (The last pay-per-view Mixed Martial Arts Championship earned $50 million!) ..."

If BL really wanted to change the world, he wouldn't have cancelled out on Roman and Sharon the day the Manson family showed up. Now that could have changed the world.

Even if he didn't invent MMA, he did save Bosnia. We must not forget that.

Fix'd.

If you need a change of pace there are some awesome "Street vs Sport" and "Wing Chun iz 2 Deadly" threads I could point you to.

Bruce Lee, to paraphrase Sean Micheals, is that annoying little nugget you just cant seem to flush.

Most people don't know that Bruce Lee invented bling. Yes, yes he did.

Turned it on this evening expecting a lot of stupid **** to be said. I wasn't disappointed. I'm surprised they didn't play a clip of Bruce eating a ham sandwich and claim we have him to thank for sliced bread.

I got the distinct feeling Shannon Lee and her mother were whoring/milking Lee's image and legacy for all they could get.

What did BL plagarize? I understand he's unpopular here, but I want to understand the arguments against his philosophy more concretely.

He didn't plagiarize, publishers plagiarized for him. He borrowed lots of his personal philosophy from others and his personal essays detailing that philosophy were published posthumously.
