RAT

The following typical threads that plague martial arts sites will get moved here if not just deleted: 1 - My style is better than Your style" - 2 - "Internal & External" - 3 - Personal attacks - 4 - Threads that start well, but degenerate into a spiral of nonsense.

People may call themselves geniuses. Geniuses don't know what the meaning of the word.

I oppose the ideas that Vladimir Lenin loved, and I have worked at times to undo some of the damage he did to the world. But by golly, I hope I look that good when I am 148. (Been there, done that, still have the creeps.)

I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

from NatGeo/Discovery Channel MA doco:

Bagua Master Sui: "i do not have any wuguan, nor conduct any class or programs.
I realized long ago that that gongli, biomechanic strength study and understanding
cannot be achieved in a definite fixed period of time.

My students come by word of mouth. I do not teach anything fancy or beautiful;
only traditional ma taught to me by my masters. Those who like it can stay;
those that feel it is not what they are looking for can go."

The Internet Russians investigation is lending a new flavor to the term "trumped up."

People who tell white lies will tell black ones too. Maybe everybody does it. However, the only way to know whether a lie was white or black is for the liar to tell the truth.

White lies matter!

You can swear on the Bible that you will protect the Constitution. But, you better not swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Been on a Robert Altman kick. Some of his movies really draw me in and some do not. Who knew 3 Women would be so enchanting?

I still do not see why Putin's Russia would not prefer Hillary's Amerca. (Even I can say "reset" in Russian.)

Trump plays hostile reporters like a bullfighter. He makes a joke about Xi. They utterly take the bait. Red cape!

I do smile when he says "disregard due process" as the punchline, though.

New word: "indoctrinology" -- the science of brainwashing.

E.g. "My husband works as an indoctrinologist for the Workers' Party of Korea."
