How is it that when my point is that I disagree with Jim's narrow interpretation of something and I explain (humorously, I thought) a wider interpretation, I am the one getting branded as stuck on minutae?

Look, people, conversation is conversation. It's going to go where it goes. If you don't like what we're talking about you don't have to post, you don't have to read it. Anyone can start a new thread on this site.

Jim stated something, I disagreed and stated my point. Issue over.

BTW, Jim ... "Gim23"... v. funny.

...Or I could just be talking.

It's a sad irony: In U's satori, he forgot every technique he ever knew; since then, generations of doka have spent their whole careers trying to remember.

Cool. I'm actually not even angry at any of the above mentioned people. Cause Matt's my friend now (bodyguard?).

Narrow Reality Tunnels

I'm just posting some frivolous comments on what I consider a frivolous thread.

Well, first off I think it's funny that when someone has a post consisting of more than a few lines, it is automatically assumed that they take themselves and life too seriously. I think in reality, some people are just good typers and articulate enough to write a lengthy post without terribly much effort.

Also, I feel aikido is a topic to be approached very seriously, seeing as it gives individuals the power to kill or cause serious injury with their hands if they so desire. However, serious topics don't mean fun can't occur. Or practice can't be full of joy and goodtimes. Taking things seriously doesn't mean you aren't having fun and enjoying yourself.

What I'm getting at, is having a serious attitude is a byproduct of being focused.. something O Sensei stressed the importance of.

this is a tad disappointing...

I came into this thread seeing it has 52 replies and thinking "wow this must be pretty interesting" and alas... half of them are about pronouncing acronyms and who called who what...

I hope you guys are happy.

<<with all of the blissfully ignorant gratitude of a Monty Python skit>>

Oh, yes. Quite happy. Thank you.

Thanks,

I'll get over it... Just - and this is to everyone - use some forethought before typing. Just as in the real world we should think before opening our mouths, people online should think before sliding their fingers across a keyboard. I have noticed this rule tends to be forgotten online...

Hey Ethan,

Get over yourself, and try not to take life so seriously. It'll make it much easier on you and those around you.

Peace, Kenn
