    Which line was better?

    "Nobody puts Baby in the corner."

    Or

    "Be nice. Until it's time to not be nice."

    I use both in my martial arts teaching at least once a month...

      I suppose you'd love to have that greet you every time you pull in considering your admiration for the man.
      See for yourself. This video was taken before the new gate was put in. It's all merchandising.

        I am a very big Swayze fan. But he had one of the most disturbing roles in motion picture history, and no I don't mean the one in that shitty trucker movie, "Black Dog". "Dirty Dancing" and "Road House" have got zero on this skull fuck.

          What exactly do you think that is supposed to show me?
          I don't need youtube to see the house.
          It's like 20 mins away.

            Do you know who actually owns the property? According to what I read, it's not any Chapman. I think it's a corporate lot, making the branding a given. Is there any indication Duane Chapman is responsible for putting that sign up? Is that really his full time domicile? If so, why doesn't he own it?

              Yeah, no shit.
              He's a fucking tv star.
              I wouldn't put shit in my name.
              Hell, it's probably a lease.
              He does live there.

                Well, who is going to check for online assessor's office records, or whatever it is called there?

                Not me !

                  I put in the address on the site just now, not that it matters.
                  It didn't return a result so it must be down.
                  He's not exactly shy about being seen there, go figure...

                  That area is really, really expensive.
                  Very dangerous coast too.
                  This is out on the point:




                  A little local flavor, the volcano goddess Pele has a little sister named Hi'iaka.
                  Pele was forever being pursued by the pig/fertility god Kama-puaa.
                  In order to distract the advances of Kama-puaa one day, Hi'iaka ripped off her vagina and threw it in the water.
                  That became the mound "Dog's" house is on.

                    At the time I wasn't looking for wife material.

                    A 90 second motor boat would have sufficed .

                      There's a place for sale down the street.
                      Maybe you can invite them over for cocktails.

                          Famous types more often than not, have assets held in trust, form a LLC or a holding company to protect themselves. Imagine going from the verge of bankruptcy to $6,000,000.00 in a short period of time, I'd want to protect my shit too. Hell, if all the mothers of his children hit him up for back child support, he could be wiped out; not to mention all the bad guys he's chased around the country. Lawsuits, whether with or without merit are very real and just defending one can cost a ton.

                          That doesn't even take into consideration the privacy and security issues. Dog the Bounty Hunter was entertainment and not much more. Chasing down bail-jumpers isn't what made him the money, being tacky (popular tacky, but tacky) made him famous and being famous made him wealthy.

                          The only thing that I ever overthink is women lol.

                            Which one of your students do you refer to as Baby?

                              Whichever newer black belt or brown belt starts acting like they buy into the tough guy image.

                              I also encourage them to attend the twinkle toe heel hook club sessions too
                              (A semi-weekly ballroom dancing class taught before open mat by a 230lb wrestling coach who was also a competitive ballroom dancer.)
                              The only trick is combat sports tend to have footwork that is on the balls of the feet,
                              But a lot of ballroom dancing is apparently heel-toe in the footwork.
                              Mestre Carlson Gracie Sr and Mestre George Gracie both taught and competed in ballroom dancing (this is true, no joke)
                              And Mestre Helio Gracie was also very accomplished as a ballroom dancer
                              (and was a competitive swimmer and competed in rowing before he took up Jiu-Jitsu).
                              So, like the late great Patrick Swayze, Dirty Dancing and Kicking Ass seem to be critical complementary skills for the well rounded martial artist / combat athlete.

                                I have recently taken up swing dancing for the same reason I started jiu jitsu. Tossing b****** is my favorite.
