1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Guys, guys, guys let's make sure to get our acronyms straight. There's BBJ and BJJ. We don't want Chuck Liddell walking into Unionmade and throwing some poor SA into a kimura.

    Pulling my stuff from Groiled, it's trained everyone to just expect race-to-the-botton prices; or it's a bunch of Pinterest "collectors." @LA Guy I'd love to see some of the small fixes to B&S you've mentioned that are in the pipeline

    Ability to sort by size would be so great. Having the same experience on Grailed, removed the accept offers option after so many lowballers

    Quote:More like separate your head from your shoulders. I have been in Union Made many times, and as a natural 155 lber (walking around at 165 lean, and 175 now, NOT lean, or a big 145 lber) in my unspectacular career, I am pretty sure that I am still among the bigger guys there. Based on the fact that Chuck is probably walking around at 225 or so, healthy, so, a full 60 heavier than the lean me, my guess is that Chuck would separate one guy's head from his shoulders, and that the richoceht of the head would knock out a second guy. I don't think that Chuck Liddell has ever pulled a kimura on anyone, though it is a strength dependent submission, and seems like something that would have played to his strengths (aggression, power). Back on track. I have been wondering if I could design some pants that are a bit like field pants but that are made with a the heavy denim (it's never indigo denim) that is used for BJJ gis, and that are roomy enough for BJJ and martial arts in general, but look good for street wear. The difficult thing is to no have open pockets or anything else that can easily get snagged and ripped during practice, but do have those things that are needed for street use, and to also have closures that are not going to cause abrasions (so, no zippers, and buttons are probably going to pop). I was thinking of pickets that are closed by drrawstrings, and of course, a drawstring waist,

    Funny, in spanish (or at least in Spain) cats are said to have 7 lives, not 9.

    I guess they're considered jerks across different cultures, though, or at least mine is, I'm currently in no-speaking terms with him.
