    You're literally literally wrong.

    藥 does not mean "liquor". It means medicine from a plant.

    Sub's right, these jokes write themselves.

      Alas

      Bottle says "For External Use Only".
      Correct, you will die if you drink many dit da jow. However jow itself simply means "medicinal herb", any plant you can make medicine from.

      Dit da means falling and getting hit. So even aspirin is a form of dit da jow, synthetically made.

      There are weeds growing on your street right now that you can crush up to relieve topical pain and sanitize wounds.

        It helps increase circulation, swelling and pain.

          You're not very funny, so don't try starting now.

          Like I said before, ethanol is the primary catalyst for this particular type of jow (the type you rub on bruises)

          There are many other things added to most good dit da jow, including the things BKR mentioned. Would you like to know more?

            I ate my neighbor's willow tree bark. I think he believes there's a beaver on the loose. Kratom was better in smaller dosage.

            Did not drive.

            We cool?

                Since my time may be short for this life, I'll be brief.

                Ken po is a Japanese bastardization of Quan/Chuan/Kuen Fa/Faht. These cover the last 400 odd years of Chinese and Japanese martial arts and their southwesterly travel from culture to culture (including places like Korea). Those 400 sum up the last few thousand years of Chinese hand to hand land warfare.

                So when evaluating kenpo, it's best to examine the teacher and their teachers. You don't know what you might find, you might get Benny the Jet wearing a KEMPO shirt.



                Kung fu is a broadly applicable term that means skill attained through hard work. Weightlifting is kung fu. MMA is kung fu.

                Gonzo is bad at comedy. So, his kung fu in that area is very poor.

                        No, you just don't like yourself.

                        With very good reason, mind you.

                        You are a coward, a narcissist, and a petty selfish fuck with no control over his own emotions, let alone your multiple personality coping mechanisms.

                        But, your kids need you.

                        So, man up, and I shall refrain from pushing you too far.

                        But, I wouldn't push it, if I were you.

                          You didn't even know what jow meant, because you had to look it up.

                          Any medicine you can crush from a plant is jow.

                          Your kung fu in kenpo and jow making is hopeless.

                            It's not the ethanol​ that'll get you. It's the tropanes and whatever else is in the topical formula.
                            Wouldn't drink it for the same reason I don't eat sticks of icy hot.

                              Rabbit et al. are mostly correct - Jow is basically bathtub gin - herbs steeped in vodka, or denatured alcohol, if it's cheap. Some you can drink, some you can maybe tolerate, others will give you a nap which will relieve all your ailments, permanently. Depends on the recipe.

                              The alcohol provides for solubility and quick evaporation (providing a sense of cooling).

                              Certain oils from certain plants, eucalyptus for example, or any strong peppers (capsaicin), certain mints (menthol), camphor oil, etc. can provide that warming sensation which we associate with athletic liniments. Some of this is due to mild irritation, which stimulates blood flow. Others are due to restricting the skin's ability to "breathe." Go ahead, dip your hand in room temperature canola oil, or glycerin. It will feel naturally slightly warm...

                              Some of these things contain acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin); fun aside, a slightly different version of that compound from the same source plant is commonly used to kill Plantar's warts.

                              Other ingredients that channel certain energies or release the bad fairies from your capillaries are just salesmanship, at best.

                              You can prove this out by looking at the ingredients in Ben Gay, Icy Hot, Tiger Balm Red, etc... those things "work," because they have commercial formulations of the exact ingredients that make good jow "good." I guarantee you can remove the fairy flowers from any good jow, and it will work the same.
                              Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.
