If that's what you believe your martial arts training has given you, you're deluded.

[quote="tempehmomma"]I can't just turn it on when I need too so I try to keep it on most of the time.


Don't you worry about having that constant level of aggression interfering in other aspects of your life? Is it of benefit to you in any other (social) situation to be so psyched up?

[quote="tempehmomma"]It sucks I can't afford to train right now. I miss that cocky swagger.


Maybe it's a good thing. You could try swishing a graphite stick at a bundle of feathers* instead; far better for you than dreaming about ways of using your foot to deprive other gentlemen of their teeth, no?

[quote="Asleep on a sunbeam"]It's just a way to get violent tenancies (spelling?) outta me when I can't say, go for a walk to cool down.


Shouldn't the aim should be to discourage such tendancies rather than to indulge them even if in a controlled manner?






*plastic ones of course! :)

Exactly what would you know about my martial arts training or my self defence training?

Again with the presupposition. *sigh*

This looks pretty much like a "worst case scenario" to me.

How would you use your martial arts training to get out of that one ?

What do you mean "Again"? Did you read my last post?

No man can handle the worst case scenario. I don't need to know anything about your martial arts training.

I'm not "presupposing" that you are deluded. It was made clear by your "it's f**kin awesome" post.

Not with that attitude they can't. And remember, Chuck Norris is just a man. He'd get it right, perhaps on the thirteenth take.

BGW, I see your worst case scenario, and I raise you.

Chuck Norris told Jack Bauer that he only killed 15 people because he ran out of bullets. Jack told him he only killed 93 people because he ran out of people.

If Chuck Norris were Jack Bauer, then 24 would be 12 because he'd have it all sorted by then.

Chuck Norris counted to infinity - twice. Jack Bauer would meanwhile do something important.

You guys! This is serious thread.

Interesting that the negative impact of Jack's job and training are a running thread throughout 24 though. HE CAN'T SWITCH IT OFF.

No, but he can switch YOU off!
The only reason you are conscious right now is because Jack Bauer does not feel like carrying you.
