The concept of alcohol proof is not of interest to some Germans.

Never mind the above, I went to see my trainer today and he told me what I didn't want to hear. I think I have post-concussion syndrome, I'm making a doctor's appointment for later this week to get the definitive word, but I'm pretty sure that's what I have.

What does that mean?  Other than no fighting for the time being, I mean.

And, I'm glad you would have opted for the no.  Fighting a 400 lb guy just doesn't seem wise.

About a week ago I was showing one of the young kids a move to use to get easy back control against guys who like to clinch. I didn't explain it well enough to him and instead of going for back control he went for a takedown and we were near the edge of the mat so my head bounced off the cement walkway near the training area.

I thought I was fine but lately I've been getting dizzy spells every day, and I can't play any video games or do any rolling, or even watch anything on TV with much motion in it or I start to feel sick to my stomach. I went to see my trainer about it today and he told me that I most likely suffered a concussion and didn't realize it and after looking me over is pretty sure I have post-concussion syndrome. I'm going to a doctor later this week to get it checked out, and if he confirms it this means no training until the symptoms go away.

As for the 400 pound guy, I'm pretty confident I could royally mess him up standing, but he's a big fat dude so he'd get a hold of me and lay on top of me for three rounds and I don't want to deal with that. It's nasty, really nasty and not something I want to go through.

Akira Kurosawa was apparently a fan of Jim Jarmusch, noting him as a talent to watch. If true, so awesome.

Red Label is good and whatnot, but it always leaves me wishing that my associates and myself could afford Black or Blue Label.

Our department Oath of Office no longer requires one to swear that they are not now and never have been a member of the Communist Party.
