    Has Anyone Actually Purchased "Shorthand Emptyhand"?

    I was thinking about buying it and posting a review. If someone else is already in the process though I won't bother sending him anymore money.

Never mind that it doesn't fucking work. Oh no, they're too fast for track. They run on the STREET.

      In case you don't like reading epic novels: Afronaut bought 2 copies and sent them to Omega and Tiffer for review.

        I was going to order it so the "YOU DIDN'T EVEN READ THE BOOK" excuse can't be used. But now I think I will bum it off Omega after he is done.

          In fairness, Katana and Scrapper have next dibs, at least on one of the copies. But you lads may have to work that out for yourselves. I try not to mediate disputes between people who could grind me into a thick, red paste.

            And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

              I'd never throw well earned money in the direction of Phil. I'd rather puree my own testicles in a blender first.

                Now that would be an excellent usage of well-earnt money.
                Rad ki was made up by adolescents. I do not know who created trad ki but it was not made by adolescents. your an ass dude, Im not being a little bitch you are, your past the level of a bitch. Your beyond Bitch! If im easting my time with ki and psi, then your wasting time to prove frauds, and all shit like that! -theoutsider

                Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower

                The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.

                dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing

                Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
                I want to learn how to use them in case my arm gets broken in a fight.
                what would you have me do? if my arm gets broke, not block punches? -sempi-stone

                  I'd like to see this "pass around" copy. I'd ship it on to the next guy too.

                    If I'm not mistaken the thing is available electronically - a pdf I would assume. If somone could just circulate that?

                      We don't want to be accused of online piracy. Damages credibility. Passing around a copy of the book is more legally justifiable.

                        Aside copycat piracy...

                        Is quoting something against the law?

                        Is posting pictures of that book against the law?

                        Is making fun of that thing against the law?

                          Yes, you're right. Good point.

                            Can't actually find a link to buy it as an ebook on the booklocker.com site.

                            I did find a pdf of an excerpt which was typically overwrought.

                              Depends. You might get a libel lawsuit (slander in print) if you're actively doing what we do to Phil, but there are very strict requirements that must be read so your average name-calling doesn't end up in court. Really differs from place to place.

                              Quoting generally must be referenced if the permission of the author cannot be obtained, but there is very rarely a problem with this. I doubt it's even illegal, but if it is, it's so rarely enforced that it's a non-issue. Just so we don't get into trouble, do reference and give credit to an author where you quote so you don't get accused of stealing intellectual property. With pictures, I have no idea. Might be the same deal as quoting. Generally these things have a great deal to do with how much value they have and how much detriment is incurred and so on and so forth. Small, minor things won't get you in trouble.
