Yes.Could you be more specific?
"Reading this thread shows the EVIL of some of the people who post on this forum!"
Your the second Lyle I have encountered.I just went through enough Drama here at the Forum and am not looking to engage in more.
Rather than pick sides I wish we could all keep this in mind: we are here United in taking our Country back.
If we don't do that, you, me and the rest of the War Room Posse will be incarcerated or sent to a Gulag.
Speaking for myself, I want very much to hear your side, your arguments on any topic here.
But, I'm not going to allow myself to be dragged into battles between members.
I offer you this: step away from the computer, go have a beer and calm down.
NVEric and ZenRoman do have strong opinions, but don't we all?
I've been posting as of late, only factual or data driven information regarding Artificial Intelligence so members can be informed and educated on the subject. That is not to say I don't have opinions, but that is where I've found the conversations can and often do breakdown and become vindictive, straying far from the Title of the Subject. Like I said, I was recently engaged in just that sort of unpleasantness. I'm sure I will run into the person I was in conflict with again, I will be civil to him as I hope he will be to me. BTW, I did "loose it" and sulked off like a child...my bad.
I would further suggest, if you have a problem with their Posts, confront them with your objections, and your criticisms.
Please please call a truce and move on to the fight of our Lives against the real EVIL - Biden and his Demons.
It's past my bedtime so if you care to respond, I'll read it tomorrow.
Have a good night.
as per conversation about Enlightenmentthe twin paradox is not actually a paradox in the sense of a logical contradiction.
into Powerlifting also.I don't know why it's showing "Video unavailable".
Click on the "Watch on YouTube" to take you there.
Yeah, Lyle Al Alzado.
Suicide by Steroid.
Many many years ago I was into Powerlifting.
Took a steroid pill and couldn't sleep all night imagining the cancer it was awakening in my body.
Threw the bottle away and slept better.
at what body weight for the 4 and a quarter?Not bad!
Not boasting...you'll see why...I was doing 425lb. dead lifts for 10 reps...when I blew out a disc. Can I say OUCH!!!
These days it's light dumbbells' (not referring to myself, although maybe I should), and a Spin Bike.
Was a Taekwondo Black Belt breaking boards...now I can't punch my way out of a wet paper bag. My hands wake me at 3 am...
"You jerk, why did you do that?"
Jumped out of perfectly good airplanes on a dark night unable to see when I was going to meet the ground for a PLF...BANG!!!
Being 18 years old, I got up, dusted myself off and walked off the DZ. But oh man, am I paying for that now.
Recently had a Ortho Surgeon put my Xray up and show me what looked like a lit up Christmas Tree...it was my spine.
He turned to me and said, "There's nothing I can do for you."
If only I knew then what I know now...........I'd do the same stupid s***.
Once upon a timeMany traps and ego deceptions in the process.
I'm at the Rec. Center sitting on a bench.
A man of...oh, at least 80 years old in a sleeveless shirt stops in front of the mirrors.
He's looking at himself, he flexes an arm that resembles a toothpick and smiles at himself.
I think...what does he think he is seeing, Arnold Schwarzenegger?
The Power Lifting was in the '70s.
I would eat every hour and forced my weight up to 198lbs.
I went into the Army, 1963, at 17 weighing 135lbs at 5'11".
I am naturally an Ectomorph.
When I was forced to stop lifting, I deflated back to about 150lbs.
Martial Arts started a little later.
Karate to Tai Chi.
Tai Chi for healing? Yes, but when you're working in the Brooklyn House of Detention for Men...you only accrue more injuries.
Long story short...had to carry an inmate which delivered the final blow to my disc. The Dept. put me out to pasture...on disability.
A couple of years ago, my knees gave out - bone on bone, very very painful. They wanted to do replacements...no thank you. I've seen the bad ones, the ones they don't want to talk about. I'll do what old men did when I was a kid...a cane, crutches or a wheel chair.
But anyway, you know Tai Chi can be rough on the knees...reached the point I had to stop that as well.
The only thing I'm actively doing now is...dying...oh well.
Martial in itself implies combat or self defenseTai Chi Chuan
“supreme ultimate fist”
Bāguà zhǎng literally means "eight trigram palm"
Without the fist or palm, it's not Martial Arts; it's dancing around while paying the money to shysters'.
Your diverting from the internal aspects of TaiChi it's OK.Rare?
IMHO you simply will not.
But you will find lots of "Masters" who completed two years of practice selling you a video.
I recall now that you and I had spoken months ago. We had similar backgrounds.
I left due to health issues.
Came back under a different name.
My Welcoming Party: bannonfan, Aubrey James and grammagirl immediately labeled me a PIT, insidiously scheming behind my back
They are very sick people and should be exposed, called out as I see you have done.
@ If you can show me I'm wrong I will say, "Thank you".Umm...exactly how did I divert from the internal aspects of Tai Chi?
My words did NOT say yes, no or maybe...or anything in the Post above, for that matter, about the Internal aspects, so I don't know why you would say that...please clarify.
I know very well Tai Chi Chuan is an Internal Martial Art. And I do know why it is so. I've been bounced off walls by a touch at the Shur Gung School in China Town NYC many many years ago.
I do not dispute that nor would I divert from that truth...why would I?
Several years ago I was told my Thyroid was enlarged. Why? They don't know...it just happens or is Cancer. So, everyday I'm out there bringing energy up from the earth; bringing energy down from the sky, directing it up the back of my spine to my Thyroid. I wash it, I cleanse it.
The Doctor tells me "It has grown aggressively, it has calcified, it has all the characteristics of cancer. It must come out."
But...but...the biopsy did show any cancer", I plead. The biopsy only gets small samples that can miss it, I'm told.
So, no Internal Energy did not help my out of control Thyroid one bit...and it turns out, it wasn't cancerous.
So Zen, we are not talking face to face where things are much clearer. That's why I hate to text for anything other than: meet me @3pm. Too many misunderstandings and misinterpretations.
All I can do is give my opinions, I can recount my experiences, and where possible give data and facts. Where I can't verify something, I will state that up front. If you can show me I'm wrong I will say, "Thank you".
I want to hear all sides...but, civilly and rationally.
In 2005 I joined a Firearms Forum where nearly every topic was reduced to:
"If you don't have a ,45 you're a pussy!"
"If you have a Glock, you're not an American!"
"If you have a 1911, you're a True Patriot!"
Something happens to people here on the Internet, and that's too bad because it pollutes the waters, creates chaos and division.
Speaking of Strange:
bannonfan et.al are very very strange indeed.
I sincerely hope that we can continue to have fruitful dialogue.
