Re: Shameless plug: I will be teaching a workshop, Santa Fe May 14-19

I'm working on a "manuscript" right now, about Nazi UFO's and fly fishing (I'm not joking). Would that work?

Re: Jonathan Haidt

Checked out the first video while hanging out in the parking lot, waiting for the Jiu Jitsu school to open. I like this guy. Seems like a solid voice of reason.

Re: What a shitty way to go

In this ladies favor, a huge number of these drop off boxes are for profit...where they collect crap people don't want then ship enmass to somewhere they can sell it. Maybe she was grabbing this shit out of the for profit boxes, and taking it to local charities, who have taken a hit due to them. Th...

Re: The problem with the "Put The Chromosme In The Bag" meme

I'd drill, or roll with a Jiu Jitsu training partner with Downs, if one such BJJ player ever came to the academy. But I wouldn't actually fight him in the cage or whatever. Something about that just wouldn't be right. I don't care if I sound "ableist" or whatever, it's not cool to actually fight so...

Have we gone soft, or should I just sit back and wait a few minutes.




Also, I never heard of this meme, either. It's pretty fucked up.
Oh this level of meanness is definitely *not* "IGX SHIT".

It's pretty fucked up, indeed.

I'm staring down the double-barrels of finding that balance right now. You don't want to molly-coddle them, and you don't want to be an absentee parent, either. I get that.

Thirty years later the same researcher wanted to repeat the study. However, after getting the approval he realised this is impossible: kids don't go out on their own anymore. He interviewed the parents (one of them was the kid from the first study), and their opinion was that it is too dangerous fo...

http://images-cdn.9gag.com/photo/agyWoWn_700b.jpg This meme came up in conversation on a thread on my Facebook page. I was surprised that I'd never heard of it, before. So I googled it. Google's autocomplete kicked in after I typed "chr" ... WOW. Anyway, I guess I'm going to Hell now, for Googling ...

She looked after him dutifully and yesterday morning, comfortable in his own bed, while listening to Wagner, he took a deep breath and passed away, on his terms, the way he wanted it. In a moment of lucidity the night before, he said to my mom- "It's too bad we closed the pool..." She asked "Why?" ...

My condolences. Your post makes a very important point though. One spiritual guru, Gurdjieff, once said two things that stuck in my head.

My Step-Dad Bobby was a great guy. He wasn't so much a "Step-Dad" in the classical sense of the word to a skinny ginger like me- he wasn't just some dickhead who was banging my mom and who had weird ideas about "discipline" who I always butted heads with. He was more like a friend, without being all...
