In general I learned a little more about Singapore's culture and armed forces today because it's National Day here.

In terms of MA, I learned a little about what it means to be realistic in my approach to SD.

(Trying to keep it on topic)

I learned that even when my Sifu seems to be just nitpicking for it's own sake, he cares about me, and wants me to be a better martial artist.

What did I learn today? I learned that a fellow employee will be leaving and she'll be missed.

I learned that a fellow employee who is also a martial artist has to wait for 3 months like myself to be able to get an MRI so that we can see a specialist to fix the problems. (Her leg injury due to sparring in Germany 2 weeks ago; me two crushed vertibrea in neck)

I learned that I'm missing my training and that I'm going next week no matter what pain I'm in. I'll just have to learn my limitations.

I learned that though I can't be all that I can be until after my surgery that today I am better off then most and I should be thankful. And that I will work with the limitations I have as later it will make me a better person.

I've learned that because of the Kick/Punch/Rape thread that I'm angry that this happens and fear more for my wife and daughter more then anything else.

I've learned again how useful this forum is and how thankful that there are such a wide variety of people on it that share many of the same interests. Thanks

I miss my training too,but it's not as important as alot of things.
I learned that alot of people care about me no matter how prideful and pigheaded I am.

I learned that The ring girls that work the 'Hook n Shoot' MMA promoted Fight nights in FL and GA are significantly hotter than the UFC girls (got a couple of dvd's for my birthday).

I learned that to comment on this to my wife is a mistake

I learned that apples taste indescribably better picked fresh off a tree in the countryside than bought from a shop.

I learned that Citroen Berlingo vans do not handle well during hand-brake turns.

I learned that male dogs give can give themselves sexual pleasure using their paw.

I think thats about it.

Continuing in word play of this nature will lead to corruption of the lyrics of 'The Bear Necessities'

The dog in question was my In-Laws new French Bulldog. By a quirk of the breed neither the b1tche$ or Dogs can reach their privates with their mouths. I walked in on 'Gus' (for that is the little sleaze-beast's name) having a 'special moment'. It looked for all the world like he was strumming an air-guitar!!
