This could only happen in the US because we have the freedom to think as we please and also because the US is such a new country that there is no tradition being passed down to get locked into like old countries like China and India, or even in Europe. The US is the melting pot of all traditions of the whole world so there is much variety of thought and so one has to think and pick a little from this and a little of that and end up coming up with something brand new. What I said about China is true, they are very good at copying but have a very difficult time creating something new.




This is the result of you teaching yourself? My friend, you need some history lessons from a qualified teacher IMMEDIATELY. This is stupidity bordering on offensive.

Well past the border into offensive if you ask me.

Even though I have so much over kill in my techniques it isnít funny but still I keep getting stronger and stronger for two reasons. One, I now have eight forty-five pound plates and two twenty five pound plates on my vertical leg press. And I want to make it up to an even ten plates of forty-five pound apiece. I donít know about you but to me it makes me feel macho about lifting ten forty five pound plates all at once, especially since I only weighs 145 pounds. Right now I can lift that weight for 15 reps. It is really cool having your own weight machines because I can work out when every I like, you all should get your machines too.

And the other reason is because the more my body is bulging with muscles, the more solid looking are my forms and of course, the better I look, the better I like it.

One time I was talking about something, I forgot what, and I mentioned something about losers and someone objected and said you can't judge someone as a loser by how they look. And I said I don't because I once know someone who looked all run down and wore ratty clothes and I didnít consider him a loser because his goal in life was not to work and he achieve it; he wasnít envious of anybody. I said losers are people who once tried to be a winner but for whatever reason they gave up and started to envy people who went on to succeed. And so the test to see if you are a loser or not is if you envy other people for their achievements then you passed the loser test and you are a loser. So that is how I see all you people here who envy me so much that you are all in denial over my achievements.

Everybody who has made significant achievements all have their entourage of trolls, even Bruce Lee, even Jesus Christ. In fact there is an old saying about it, ďEnvy is the tax of distinctionĒ and to that I add, yeah and the ďlosers are the tax collectors.Ē So it seems to me that the greater you distinguish yourself the greater the tax you have pay. Just like people who make a lot of money pay a lot more taxes then someone who only makes a little bit of money. And so it seems to me that the greater my troll entourage is, the more the trolls recognize my distinction and the more jealous they are which in a backhanded way I find very flattering. So the more you all work yourselves up against me the better you make me look and the worse you make yourselves look because now everybody knows your true nature. Iím sure if you was in the same kung fu class as I, you'd all be the ones like Iíve seen before setting on the side lines watching me with knitted brows gnashing your teeth at me. After all, isnít that what you are doing right now?

But I didnít come here to talk about or to losers. I came here to talk about kung fu and that is what I am going to do. So all you losers can make me look as good as you like, I appreciate the time and effort you are putting into it but Iím not going to waste anymore of my time with you. Iím sticking with talking about kung fu.

Ok, folks. We have had some fun here zinging each other. But now let's either get back to the topic or this thread gets locked.

Matt,
I'm sorry. It's just that I'm so "jealouse against" guy. I used to feel special when I came here. Now that he is here I can't help but feel like... well... like I'm a loser. I don't know any Kung Fu at all. Crap. I'm never coming back.
