Re: Family Jewels or Skill of Ueshiba

My luck I'd give up the goods and be given the skill of Monty Ueshiba, the one-eyed, club-footed carcass removal technician at the medical research facility


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."

Re: Family Jewels or Skill of Ueshiba

Aah, my bad, I didn't think this was a serious query - OK, serious answer is if you allow yourself to be mutilated in this manner you've already lost both your jewels and the chance to attain his skills as they were not only founded in technique but were tempered by the process of attaining them in the first place. You may have gained the techniques, but the experience to use them would be missing and the weakness you've already shown in how you gained them would denote an inability to learn. I've always found that there are no true short-cuts in life.

[can I make a bad joke about hakamas or bowing now please, serious posting is exhausting]
