This is obviously correct. SMP comes through in spades. I guess we move on to the next challenge. We're done with this one.

This may stump most............
In my experience it's ten strong Margaritas

Bad mistake is to think that the tenth should be a chocolate margarita

I'm good at sharing things but not at sharing stories: the story less shared.

The title of my future biography.

It will involve a lot of mundane stories, dripping in philosophical condescencion, paradox, contradiction and
it will cause general unease and confusion. A bit like life. It won't be popular.

Freedom to choose purpose is completely satisfying so far. Even better when no purpose is also available to occasionally choose. SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

We are witnessing a present day white Ali, lads.



He knew the right was coming and blocked it, predicted a left was likely coming so decided to drop his hands and slip what was probably coming next again while having some fun, risks aside.

Risky fun - the meaning of life.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Protect the brain from stupid sports! Play the sports for fun if you can do it safely but prevent your brain taking risks that are not worthy it when the battle gets immense and the opponent no longer cares for your humanity.

In all my life as a student dealing with bullies i never remember a simple instance that i honestly wanted to destroy the other side or took fun in trashing them. You can hit a person in a fight without aiming to destroy them as if you care for the ultimate recovery of the opponent.

In war you have no such choice. So dont have war then unless something much bigger than stupid pride or ego or near term gain of garbage superficial values is at stake.

I admit, CTE is always in the back of mind as a combat sports fan. Like a guilty pleasure in some regards. Boxing appears to be worse than the others e.g MMA. We had this discussion before I believe and brought up American Football, and pointed out how we are still finding out how dangerous it is to the brain.

There is a bareknuckle fight on this weekend, with a former retired pro-boxer headlining the show. In a sense, we have gone back in time. Boxers began wearing gloves to protect their hands, actually. Due to the structure of the rounds: there are less of them, it's debatable about whether it is worse or not than boxing. Superficially, it looks worse - more susceptible to cuts for sure.
I'll be tuning in, to see how a boxer fares against a mediocre mma fighter in bareknuckle, without the takedowns and ground fighting. We haven't seen this scenario before, you know.

Headgear has been removed in amateur boxing because a study was done, that suggested the headgear causes more trauma than without it. In boxing circles, the belief is that that the headgear was removed to make it more entertaining, and that it leads to more cuts which can cause an opponent to lose where they normally wouldn't.

You definitely need to get out of the house, more. That's all I can say.

I was feeling like **** the other week and usually know why but this time I didn't.
So I said I'd go for a walk down by the river, and sat on a bench. Watching the swans. Two people passed me on bicycles wearing high res jackets, and one said hi and while the second was passing he stopped. I was in deep thought, and he asked me how I was. I looked at the crossbar of his bicycle and it read 'suicide patrol.' Or words to that effect. I had to laugh because it only then occurred to me about how that river is well known for people jumping into, and there I was there because I was feeling down. And replied, "I'm good, I don't feel like jumping into the river, no worries." We then chatted about what it takes to be a volunteer etc.

I went home feeling good again.
Getting out of the house alone, opens up all sorts of opportunities.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

The fact that maybe we all need each other every day doesn't imply we are destroyed otherwise. It simply means that maybe the outcome is better for all in more ways than one can imagine locally by being distant, indifferent and permanently selfish.

As for getting out of home more you know that i have a 7/7 365/365 work schedule right? Sometimes i return home at 1am. I know how the world works outside and i always use as example to people that are unhappy that all it takes is to visit a park or a nice beach or watch a sunrise or sunset to feel that at a basic level its all good.
