Hello Shorinjimike:

<<I would rather hone my physical skills then my linguistic ones

Explain the idea well and you know what you are attempting long after we part company. The two are not mutually exclusive. Both must exist together...

And empty mindless rote is not intelligent training necessarily either ?

<<Just for the record Jeff...

Let me try again, more carefully choosen words. Far more physically away from the net, clear enough?

Jeff
