All I ever did was respond in the tone with which I was addressed on this thread.
Any criticism I have made in relation to certain persons has been entirely based on the (lack of) content of their posts.
If I appear childish, or if anyone id disappointed by my conduct on this thread, I am just going to have to accept that, because i cannot in any sincerity apologise for any of it.

Cord.

May I also add that if, judging from my relatively miniscule number of posts on this thread, I have been in anyway, owing to any inherent / congenital lack of cognitive comprehension of the highly complex technical issues under consideration by so many esteem / knowledgeable members of this august Forum,.....ehhh....(where was I)....ah yes, I do apologise for whatever, to whomever and on howsoever...ehh...I may have...ehh......anyway it was nice talking to you all....and....ehhh...........

I've stayed off of this thread. Seeing as how it's gotten to it's TWENTY SIXTH page though got my attention and I figured I'd take a look and see what was going on.

The FIRST Now now, John. Play nice please. to appear on the scene was Andy44. He started his sh*t slinging by saying the guy that just beat up two opponents "needed to really improve" (I'm paraphrasing).

I suppose we have to allow him his opinion, EVEN IF IT IS WRONG.

Shouldn't this thread be closed by THIS point? Not having read the entire thread yet (only so many hours in the day), I can't see what purpose it's serving to stay open.

I see to drinking buddies who, like many drinking buddies have a difference of opinion. This goes on for some time. Then of the two buddies one trys to de escalate with his pal by embracing and placating him. Uncertain whether that stratagy will work, I believe he impulsively and most likely habitually takes the attention off himself by lashing out and creating a straw man or common enemy. I believe his subconsious thought was I will stand the best chance of escaping the present threat of violence from my partner by creating a situation in which he he becomes my mate again rather than my attacker. On the part of the boxer I see a reaction based on conditioned physical training. I imagine he saw the altercation taking place as he and the girl approached, yet to some degree was still suprised by the appearently random swing. Nothing just happened. There was cause and effect involved. Keep in mind all those frames happened in less than one second. Much of what happened was on a subconcious level and based on previous conditioning there was very little rational or reasonable thought going in to the peoples actions. This thread is very much like the video. We have the opportunity to react or respond. One being based in our conditoning and the other being freely chosen conscious thought. If we have the opportuniny to choose, the question then becomes did we choose wisely. Who can say? The people in the video had a few seconds, we have had two days to consider our response and still behaved like chimps.




i think oldman has got alot of it right here, proberly the most rasional explantion iv heard. all the rest of u are going off on crazy tangents lol

On my dial-up computer it took over twelve minutes to download the video. This gave me a long time to think about what little I got to see every half minute or so. I started to wonder who actually took the video, from what vantage, and how the photographer was able get the whole action to take place in the best field of view: by the "discarded" newspaper.
Then I wondered, if the boxer's haymaker punch went past the girl-hitter's left ear, why did he go down so hard? And the often repeated, "Back Off!" was a yell, not a scream. Great theater!

OK. Now you can put a lid on it.

Thanks

I just down from the Isle of Skye
I'm no very big but I'm awful shy
All the lassies shout as I walk by,
"Andy, Where's Your Trousers?"
Let the wind blow high and the wind blow low
Through the streets in my kilt I go
All the lassies cry, "Hello!
Andy, where's your trousers?"
I went to a fancy ball
It was slippery in the hall
I was afeared that I may fall
Because I nay had on trousers
I went down to London town
To have a little fun in the underground
All the Ladies turned their heads around, saying,
"Andy, where's your trousers?"
The lassies love me every one
But they must catch me if they can
You canna put the breeks on a highland man, saying,
"Andy where's your trousers?"
