Is this really about organic foods now? Lol Well this is the off topic thread. :lol:

Also, i feed organic veggies and fruit to my birds. However, theres truth to this, whats better than buying organic food so you know its really organic and safe for enviornment is growing it yourself. When you have neither option you just do what has to be done. However, you can tell when something has pesticides when you have a pet. Your pet gets sick eventually or dies. Than again, I get USDA approved stuff and im still unsure at times.
Lucid dreaming will always be apart of me that I cherish. Even If I'm different.

I don't give a fuck. Food is food. :mrgreen:

To get back on topic of the off topic,
Food is sometimes "food".
Just be informed and know what it actually is.
There are countless examples of deception, but just off the top of my head, most "honey" and "maple syrup" in the U.S. is actually corn syrup with flavourings.

I got that from this video:

I've probably been in half a dozen fights. Wins and draws---never lost! But I'm not proud of my physical confrontations---seen as they are often the product of a breakdown in communication---so much as I'm proud of my resistance to violence which only fails me when I'm physically threatened or provoked.

Extreme ire and self-defence---always ignited by an egotistically unreasonable individual---are the only contexts which antagonise my proclivity for composure and civility.

I've never been a troublemaker and every time I fought, I always believed I was doing so for a good and noble reason. My adversaries have always expressed an unscrupulous nature and threw the first punch ...

... so since I know myself to be reasonable and mostly scrupulous, I naturally consider myself to be the only person at the time to be deserving of help and worthy of victory! So I help myself. If I lose, it's an injustice. If I win, I hope my opponent has learned a lesson.

In a similar moralistic vein, if I ever wrong someone and the wronged punch me, I'll take it if I find I'm the despicable one.

But I'm almost always right. And I only fight when physically provoked. Never when verbally abused.

So if you ever see me under some colossus, be sure to help me because there's a high probability that I'm right! :mrgreen:

Yeah. My fights have always been against bullies who tried to mess with me,I never went out of my way to be an asshole and start one. I lost only 1 fight,but that loss ended up being a giant "blessing in disguise" (for lack of a better term,we both despite religion. :lol: )because it ended up starting me on the path to heavily researching martial arts and violence(I was OBSESSED with fighting and violence back then,and that's putting it lightly. I've mostly gotten over it by now though),which is why I know the things I do now. I can say with confidence that I'm far more knowledgeable about violence than your average tough guy. (and especially the average civilian) and the knowledge prepared me for the very last fight I was going to get into in the future. To this day,I'm still very much proud of what I achieved there,not many can say they defeated the baddest/most feared bully in the high school they went to. :mrgreen: (You know what? Perhaps I'll send you the saved conversation I had about that fight later,just because I want to hear your thoughts.)

Anyway,what I'll talk about here now is just about that one fight I lost,I'll focus only on the physical altercation itself and cite the things I learned from it. I don't really remember the cause all that well anymore,and its not really all that interesting anyway. (Its a typical bully scenario). here goes:

R(the bully)and I are in each other's face,R's been verbally abusing me and I had enough of it. I was punching R in the chest,hoping that I could intimidate him to back off. (This was my Big mistake in this fight,let me cite an important quote by Theodore Roosevelt: Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft. This is especially true in a fight,if a situation is bad enough that you have to go physical or hit someone,you hit them with everything you have and the full intention to deck them. Had I done this,I almost certainly would have won)

Unfortunately,R capitalized on this mistake and hit me with everything he had right on my nose. Damn,it was the hardest punch I ever took in my life. My head was spinning,and my eyes were watering. (I wasn't crying,its a natural reaction to getting hit in the nose. but fuck,was it embarrassing :oops: ). R started raining lots of punches into my face and I couldn't defend myself because the tears in my eyes blinded me. (or was it my rocked brain? I can't tell). In addition,I might have actually froze because I didn't expect such a fierce counter-attack.

I don't know how many punches R landed,but I was about to fall on the ground. However,in the midst of the beating,the thought came to me that "If I fall down,there's a good chance he's going to start stomping and kicking me on the ground. I can't let that happen!" and so I got angry and forced myself to charge right in to clinch and lean unto him. I was bigger and taller than he was,and so I was able to place my body weight on him and use him as a support. Here's a fighting scene that I can say most accurately depicts what I was doing:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHqSDtMNPeU (Go to 42:40 to see the clinch)

and...it WORKED! The guy couldn't hit me anymore(I got lucky that when I clinched,I was able to tie down both of R's arms) and I was able to rest on him until the fight was broken up by the surrounding people. Once they peeled me off of him,I glared at him eye to eye(I don't know how I look like when I'm angry or in combat mode,but they say I look very scary,especially because my eyes tend to turn red.) then proceeded to just walk away. I hate to admit it,but I wasn't in any shape to fight anymore at that moment. I lost. My nose was bleeding profusely,but thankfully it wasn't broken and that was the only injury I sustained. You could also say that I may have lost the battle,but still won the war anyway because R came apologizing to me later on and didn't want to mess with me anymore. What do you know,even when you lose,fighting can still successfully resolve a situation with a bully. :lol:

Oh...and here comes lesson #2. Clinching is a great way to recover when you've been rocked(though be sure to do your best to tie both of your opponent's arms with the clinch,although this may not always be possible). I should have done that IMMEDIATELY as soon as that first hard punch landed and rocked/blinded me. Had I done that,I would not have taken so much punishment and I might even have been able to recover enough to get back into the fight. Another option is to try and wrestle your opponent to the ground and rest on top of him until you recover. The 3rd option that I learned from Marc Macyoung is you can lay on the ground and use up-kicks to keep the opponent away until you're able to recover. Of course,being rocked is not a position you want to be in(Trust me,I know. :lol: ). These 3 tactics are simply meant to keep you from getting annihilated until you can recover.

I dunno if you guys find this interesting to talk about,but I felt like bringing it up. haha. I'm not as obsessed about this as I used to be,but I'm still a fighting nut. haha :D

This is the fighting thread. Why are we talking about food still? :D

Bullies, like predators in the wild, only attack the weak. Even if they can win, they won't risk getting hurt. Just give them the crazy stare that lets them know you are in survival mode as if being attacked by a wild animal, so you're going to gouge their eyes out with your thumb. If they don't heed your crazy eyes then I guess you might end up even worse (albeit, with a cool souvenir), so in that case, treat it like a bear attack and run!
(Or are you suppose to stay still and make loud noises? It might work by confusing the bully until it loses interest and finds other prey.)

At any rate, yea, if you are gonna fight, FIGHT!
Or cry like a girl and then when he looks away in disgust, kick him in the balls.
(Do I even have to mention what show that last line is from?)
