A wise man once said, "it's okay to think about jiujitsu during sex. but it's not okay to think about sex during jiujitsu."

Anyone care to give me a TL;DR on the conflict as a whole? I know nothing about it.

Hops! Why haven't I thought of that!? What the hell is wrong with me!?

Definitely not the scoby. Nobody saw a fetus pancake and thought, "that would go great in some sweet tea".

I can't stand this argument. The idea that we should just outnumber and overpower rural populations is exactly why they hate metropolitan liberals so much. I think progressive politics are great, but we have to progress together. The constitution was written in a way so that it balance the population-heavy cities with the rural countryside. We can't neglect and forget our countrymen. The very idea that we should is exactly why they've come to resent the left.

I do a lot of leg swings and try to get my foot higher off the ground every time. I feel like this really opens up my hips and allows me to kick higher.

a huge misconception is that you need to lose weight to start doing muay thai. it's nonsense. you can do muay thai at any weight, and it will help you lose weight, which will help you do more muay thai. start now, eat your veggies, and your weight will solve itself.

most gyms have "loaner" equipment for the absolute beginner, which is going to be some old gloves and maybe shin guards. they'll teach you basic punches and kicks and then you'll get to hit pads for a while. you should not feel pressured to spar/fight until you're comfortable with it. if you want to drop a couple of bucks, get 2-3 pairs of hand wraps and a pair of gloves of your own so you don't have to use the nasty old pair they have for newbies.

HAVE FUN! WELCOME!

Awesome. Thanks for the help. One thing, what kind of gloves and hand wraps would I need if I buy some?

I included links in my comment with some good gloves and wraps. You want 16 oz. boxing or muay thai gloves. everlast makes a cheap pair that almost every beginner gets, they're not great but they do the job. i recommend Venum, or if you can, Fairtex. any wraps will do.

I didn't know they made dudes like this back then. Fuck yeah.

When I lived on campus, I ate at J2 religiously. I would stuff myself during dinner, and sometimes steal things like fruit or peanut butter to eat the following morning. I also used to make weekly trips to HEB to stock up on stuff like eggs, ramen, bread, peanut butter, whatever. Dorm food.

When I lived off-campus, I still ate at J2/Kins sometimes just to go balls-out on some yumyums, but I mostly meal prepped chicken or tilapia, steamed broccoli or salad, and rice or potatoes. I also bought a metric fuckload of bananas, peanut butter, bread, and coffee, and I ate PB&banana sandwiches and french pressed coffee every morning.

long story short, peanut butter.

Do you usually skip lunch? I often get full for a day if I go to buffet.

I used to eat two meals a day: a morning meal (usually JCL big breakfast, or just stuff I had in my room) and then literally as much food as I could eat at J2. It worked out for me, but your mileage may vary.

The desert is so mindblowing to me. It reminds me of the ocean in the way that it stretches out past the horizon.

Definitely not as bad as drinking soda. Soda is what, like 25g of sugar a can? It's terrible for you.

Anything in excess *could* be bad for you, but I think you're fine.

This guy robbed someone of their own life. Maybe when identified earlier that he's unstable, they should have dumped him and all others similar on an island. Life in prison of a living being is inhumane as is death sentence. Either give them a chance in the very beginning by putting them all on an island. Or just wait for him to rape/murder an innocent person, and now requiring justice of hanging him. Very, very sad for the innocent person, and sad even for him.

Can't tell if you're serious...

why would you think otherwise? what would you do otherwise if you don’t think we should execute him? And I think life in prison is just as inhumane. Should we hold his hands and hope he doesn’t do it again? Slap him on the wrist?

Is this not the best option for people like him?

I don't think execution is ever the "best option". "Hold his hand" is obviously not all that has to be done, but I personally feel that our justice system should be based more on rehabilitation than punishment. I don't think life in prison is just as inhumane, either; I would rather spend life behind bars than die today.

Probably not. Just be gentle when you pour, so you don't potentially tear the scoby, if it's that thin. Make sure it's room temperature; too hot and you'll hurt the cultures in your booch.

People think chokes kill people because they see it in movies. You can box the shit out of someone on the street and everyone's like "ohhh! damnnn!" but when you sink in the RNC people think you're taking it to murder town.

Should have slept his ass instead of listening to everyone else and letting him up. Walk away while he wakes up, be gone by the time he's lucid.

Martini 'shaken, not stirred'= Idiot who knows nothing about booze and definitely has no idea what they're ordering, and will most likely not like it.

That said, I'm pretty tolerant of most drink orders, people are allowed to like what they like, even if I don't share the same taste.

Edit: I should clarify, it's the specific way of ordering it to sound like James Bond that I find douchey and tells me the guest probably don't know what they're doing and won't like the drink, not the actual drink itself.

One time I was at a taco place near UT Austin and some kid walked in wearing a tuxedo. He ordered a martini, but insisted that it not have gin. They asked if he wanted vodka instead, and he said he didn't like vodka, but he wanted a martini.

Eventually they just made him one, he said he didn't like it, and just left.

I love stabbing with it. I aim for the solar plexus and try to snap it straight up from the ground in one quick motion. I also love galloping (some call it a "skip step") into a lead leg teep. It's a great kick to close some distance, and it's pretty awful to catch one right in the gut, so it's also cool for punishing someone for getting too close.

I will often sit outside of kicking range and wait for them to step in, and as soon as they do, stab with the teep and then cross-hook-cross.

You can use it for sure, but it limits your offense a lot. You can't punch, and the low grip makes it hard to throw knees to the body. You can foot sweep with it, but it's not as effective as a over/under or double underhooks.
