Technically It's Gung Fou

It’s very strange, being an old person. You have to constantly remind yourself that a lot of the rules that seemed incredibly useful at one point are dumb, or were always so, or were phantom exertions from someone else’s hierarchy. Also, if you want to take Karate for some reason, or no reason, and if you can find a half an hour somewhere, you can probably do it.

Some things you want as a young person lose their relevance; some of them you could get, now, but can’t see the point. When I was in my larval form, before my ninth molt, I thought it would be fucking awesome to have Devastator and Omega Supreme have a big fight on the floor of my room. I could do that now, and please what remains of that young man in my current iteration, but I know that they’re just plastic now and the living part of them is gone.

At some point I decided to become a verb. I wanted to develop a suite of custom flagella devoted to altering my environment; I got hooked on it. Beneath it all, the desire for supreme kicking knowledge has managed to retain its ancient heat. It was like finding something under a mess which has been a mess for so long that it’s simply what the room looks like now; it had become geography, which gave the rediscovery an archaeological cast.

Watching my son bow into the dojo and cinching his white belt feels more real to me than all the other real things I am supposedly experiencing. It’s heavy in my hand, I could break a window with it. I have very few memories like this.

(CW)TB out.

    Gabe in every panel is priceless.

    Gabe's expression in panel 3 is indeed excellent.

    What's the difference between regular Yoga and Hot Yoga?

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.

    Remember that this is Gabe and he is asking if it is hot in there and if there are ladies.

    I've discovered why I can't see comics lately: the ones hosted on smugmug are blocked by the filter here at work. The ones hosted on art.penny-arcade.com are still viewable, though.

    This was a good one, by the way.

  • TubeTube Administrator, ClubPA admin
    I don't have any work filter and I also can't see the comic

    Me thinks you should consult a psychiatrist. The best part of being an adult is you can have Devastator and Omega Supreme open cans of whoop ass in ANY and EVERY room of the house!

    This is actually a thing. People do yoga in steam rooms.

    If I remember those are actually the same place. *.smugmug.com was blocked by some work filters so they set up art.penny-arcade.com as a workaround. Maybe something got screwed up when they changed the website?

    A stiff boner tends to knock over anyone with pants on.

    When I hear Hot Yoga I think of this:

    (In case of takedown, that's the yoga scene from Couples Retreat)

    First post by long time reader, and I have to say the forum design seems pretty damn solid. Anyways...

    The comic is good but I must say the post is great. That's really cool you're doing martial arts with your kid. I'm not a dad, but I first got into karate with my dad when I was young, and it was an awesome thing to practice with him, for like, bonding.. with emotions and stuff. Yeah.
