I think they are trying to get around it by telling me that all of their prices are exclusive of VAT, even though they are the same exact prices inclusive of VAT at other shops.

The dilemma is that it's already half price with free shipping, though...

First day of class, Rhon, the head instructor, gives this speech about how if you want to get in touch with your chi you're in the wrong place. They're there to teach you to fight. Haha. Fok said that guys who have the most swagger are the ones whose bodies are functional, and I definitely felt that way while I was doing it.
Incidentally, if anyone can recommend a place for Brazilian jiu jitsu in NYC let me know. Been curious about that for a while now.

There are a bunch of Cesar Gracie schools, but Matt Serra's gym on Long Island is legit. Apart from having great BJJ credentials, Matt Serra has a pretty decent UFC record, and his BJJ is not only very inventive (from reputation, I've never trained at that gym, or with any of his students), but it's very suited towards MMA, which I think makes it more effective. BTW, this is blasphemy to many BJJ purists, so, probably don't go around saying it to a Gracie Baja guy unless you are looking to fight, but traditional BJJ doesn't seem to have evolved to account for people just being able to stand up out of the guard, especially big, strong guys, nor to account for the fact that lots of guys are strong enough to pummel dudes senseless even when they are in the guard.

Renzo Gracie has a school in NYC. The head coach John Danaher is top notch.

she's perfect because you and her share common liking for juvenile and materialistic endeavors foo.gif
post #59018 of 109053
materialistic yes, but juvenile? dozingoff.gifsarcasm.gifeh.gifplain.gifrolleyes.gif

well if you put it that way what is your perfect girl besides common interest and attractiveness

yeah for better or worse video games strike me and always have as juvenile. i always got bored with them, except FIFA/PES kept me entertained a little while longer. Still I'd rather play the real thing. or lift weights. sup knucks
no problem in common interests, but if the common interests are so superficial then i personally would be asking some questions of myself. attractiveness is just perceptions of symmetry coupled with personality etc blah blah blah derail thread tongue.gif

i'm too old skool i guess.

Yeah and books are just fancy blended wood and the mona lisa is just some gunk on a sheet of cloth and love is just random neurons firingfight[1].gif

 

RE Diablo, though, being juvenile isn't really a bad thing because pretty much everyone age 20-30 grew up playing either the first or second one as a kid, so a new one after 12 years is a cool nostalgia trip for like a week; it's juvenile but that's the point and weirdly enough it's one of the few things that tie that generation together.

i honestly dont play video games anymore but there's something attractive about a girl who plays games, drinks beer, and watches sports. i guess common interest. i would file personality under common interest.


i guess you're suggesting a perfect girl would be someone intelligent or knowledgeable (as opposed to materialistic things)? but really somebody could be knowledgeable and intelligent about something but she wouldnt be perfect for you if you had no (common) interest in the subject.

you are. the average of all the faces you've seen is what you think beauty is. average face = symmetrical face.



also this thread basically exists to contain the derailment that happens on all threads on sf

no, attraction was in the physical sense (or else it would have been redundant to even state that) and so what is physical attraction ? well there are theories about it etc. not worth getting in to. that's different than the absurd reductions about books and paintings.

and if a video game is one of the few things that ties a generation together no wonder the generation is so screwed up and disconnected with microtrends ruling a disconnected society. thankfully, i'm 64 and well beyond your childish ways bigstar[1].gif
