    ...I have to wonder if you actually said "genious.

    Sorry, my OCD again. Anyway, the point of that post is that you're implying that it's explicitly wrong to believe in something you can't prove exists. You certainly have the right to not believe it lacking evidence, but you can't say it's wrong.

    By the same token, he can't expect you to agree with him unless he shows you some evidence. Incidentally, I would love to see evidence.

    Although, typically, the only evidence Christians provide on this subject is "Nobody can find his body." Which brings us back to the argument from ignorance.

    So, if he can provide evidence, I'd be interested in hearing what it is. If he can't, then the only thing we can do and remain gentlemen is to agree to disagree about it. He believes it on faith, we don't.

    Edit: You fixed the genious. My obsessive compulsive behaviour is pleased.

    User: MVMosin
    Infraction: Serious offence

    Administrative Note:
    Don't tell high school kids to buy guns to go into fistfights with.

    Message to User:
    Original Post:
    Buy a gun. That's the best advice.

    Otherwise, stand at an angle. Keep one leg forward, and the weight of that foot on the heel of the foot. The foot away from your opponent should have weight centred on the ball of the foot. This will make it easier to react to and soak punches. If your opponent tries to kick you, back up to avoid thrust kicks, and stop other types mid-swing with your forward leg.

    Keep your arms up when you kick. If you have trouble with this, hang a towel around your neck and wrap it around your fists, and throw some kicks for balance. Kicks are mostly defensive maneuvers, unless you're an experienced fighter, which you're obviously not.

    For punches--avoid throwing your shoulder out. If you throw a punch, and you can see your shoulder with your peripheral vision while looking straight ahead, then you're throwing it out too much. When your fist reaches the apex of your punch (The planned "meeting point" for your knuckles and your target) your arm should be entirely straight and preferably parallel to the ground.

    Learn to clench your abs and pecs. It'll make it easier to soak punches that you can't block or avoid. Don't rely on doing this--it's a last resort, and it's only slightly better than nothing.

    Keep your thumbs outside of your fists.

    Some places are easier to apply pressure to than others. With straight punches, the easiest are the insides of the shoulders, the sternum and area around it, the bottom of the chin, (Note that the bottom of the chin is NOT the neck.) and the nose.

    If your opponent is really close, then don't draw back for a punch. That will just leave you open. At that kind of distance, your forearms can be utilised to great effect. Hold them perpindicular to the ground and swing towards the inside of your body, sort of like throwing a hooked punch.

    The easiest way to exert energy from your body is your elbow. From your end, it probably won't feel very powerful, but swinging your elbow upwards is a very effective way to get your opponent to back off. Just don't make the mistake of trying to bring it down on your opponent, unless he's done something stupid to leave himself open. Even then, you will probably be better off using your knee.

    Again, use your knees if your opponent is close.

    Grabbing your opponent's shoulder with your hand, or wrapping your elbow around his elbow is an effective way to control him. If he does either of these to you, counter with the opposite. If he's an undisciplined fighter like most street fighters are, any attempts to grapple you will probably leave him open to being grappled himself.

    Please, for the love of God, don't try to hurt your opponent. I'm only giving you this advice because I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt. That is, I'm assuming you won't go looking for trouble. If he tries to back out, or especially if he doesn't start anything to begin with, then just let him be.

    If he's really got you back into a corner you could just pull a fast one on him and saying something like "OH SHIT WAIT LOOK MAN" and pointing to some place behind him, and then when he looks back like a dumb ass you attack. You'll still get good rep for outsmarting and kicking his ass.

    And if your really desperate, carry sand or black pepper pepper spices in your pocket and throw them at his eyes like a ninja. He'll be crying and shit and you could easily finish him.

    All other neighbors who requested some civility where welcomed with a drunken and aggressive man who told them to promptly fuck off since this was a free country (I am restraining myself from telling you many stories related to their aggressiveness). I would like to take that man up with his way of thinking and do a little bit of free willed action of my own by bugging the fuck out of these people. I am looking for straight out revenge here to which they won't be able to do much or even better - not figure out what's actually happening. They are obviously not the type to be reasoned with, so I won't even try to do so. Let me be clear on this - I want to fight fire with fire. I want to do something to which they won't feel there is much they can do in return save for bending over and taking it up the Borat Tunnel of Love.

    Unfortunatly I have not imagination what so ever, so I was wondering if any PAers would have some devious ideas to share. I've been thinking about sending over all kinds of different authorities like child services and shit but somehow that seems a bit overboard. Obviously, this has to be legal.

    Cat told you to stop having a slapfight with Glyph in the BSG thread, and you didn't. Say hello to your new bouncing baby infraction.

    Those are minor plot points, especially when compared to the overall direction RDM wants to take the series which will undoubtedly be a significant departure from the original series.
    You mean, like, how in the original storyline where an army of robots launched a very effective surprise attack on the Colonies, succeeded in wiping out the 12 worlds and most of the fleet, and only the Galactica and a handful of civilian ships survived? And in the re-imagined series, that's no longer true, but completely changed and different? That kind of major departure?

    Give it up Glyph. Your argument that "if something happened in the original series, it won't happen in this one" is completely wrong.

    And the rest of that paragraph you wrote made no sense whatsoever. Gods reincarnating? What?

    So now you're going to argue that years don't correspond. Even though they make reference to the passage of time which seems to match up pretty well. "In the Re-imagined Series, time appears to be measured by the Colonials as is done on Earth with the term year." Years, months, weeks, etc. They certainly don't seem to be using any alternative system of measurement. And even if they did, it doesn't seem to be particularly different from ours. If anything, this suggests that they took the same system of measuring time from Earth when they moved to Kobol and onward to the Twelve Colonies. That's why they all use the same measurement and not whatever corresponds to their respective worlds.

    We actually have been given evidence to the contrary. That's why most characters have names of Earth origin specific to Europe. And if they were based purely on ancient Greek and Egyptian names, there shouldn't be any Christian or Welsh or Scandinavian names like Michael Roberts and Samuel Anders. Or Hungarian and Italian names like Novacek and Valerii.
    No, it does not suggest that! It suggests that the writers were aware the show would be watched on Earth and made concessions for the benefit of the public!

    You're taking technical details that make the show watchable, like the fact they're speaking English or counting in years/months/days and building your whole theory on that. You're basically building a theory on breaking the fourth wall. Next, I expect you'll integrate in it the fact the whole thing doesn't take place in space but in a sound stage in Vancouver.

    Let me put it as simply as I can. They're from alien worlds. They've never been to Earth. They do not speak English, and do not count in Earth years. To believe the opposite is ludicrous.

    And who created the Colonial's holy book, every character and the Cylons for this series? Unless you're going to argue that it was the writers + God and gods.
    According to the show, the people on Kobol created the holy book. Some guy whose name was mentioned but I forgot travelled with the 13th tribe to Earth and recorded the voyage, then either went back or sent his manuscript back to Kobol, and that became one of the stories in the holy book.

    Unless you want to once again break the forth wall and argue "no it's the show's writers!"

    Man, Cat wanted to get rid of the whole insult contest glyph had going on, and rightfully so.

    Someone wasn't paying attention again. Cat was talking to both of us about fanboy speculation. And after I dropped it, you picked it right back up again. Give it a rest.

    Yanno - I am convinced that youre more interested in scoring points than actually discussing the issue. I said WHICH emails; not WHAT emails. There is a big difference between the two - not the least of which is the fact that one allows your really unecessary ranting to continue, and the other doesn't.

    Grow the fuck up.

    Yanno?

    Also, I fucking linked the fucking email you fucking twat, and every fucking news article specificially referenced that specific email, and yes you would have to live in a hole to not know this
