Re: Aikido on a wasp

when i first saw this thread, i thought wasp, as in W.A.S.P,
as in White Anglo-Saxon Protestant.

...and I was like, "Hmm...aikido against White-Anglo-Saxon-Protestants?"
..that's weird..
then i started thinking about distracting uke with SUV's and 2.4 children.

and then i thought, i just better click on the thread and look for myself.



then I saw aleksey's post, and knew i did the right thing.

i'm going away now...

Ah, right, they do have a purpose. Perhaps we should send you some of ours?

What do you think O'Sensei was doing when he was swinging a bokken around. Get enough accuracy with that thing and wasps become a thing of the past and your lampshades are never touched.
I discovered that a 30cm (or for the traditional practioners 12 inch) rule is not as good as 30p green fly swat shaped like a big hand. Now, if I swung a bokken I would have no lampshades and lots of broken furniture? Or is that the next level to achieve in wasp aikido?

Uh huh. That's the test for Shodan.

Judan is when you swing the bokken at the wasp, it merely wobbles in mid air and everyone thinks that you missed....until you point out that there is a wasp that will never mate again.

Cheers,

Matt.

Matt Malloy, I formally accuse you of being a Mork and Mindy fan for that last joke, for which there is no excuse!

I admit it. I throw myself (interesting technique) on the mercy of the court with no ukemi.

What can I say. It all seemed so innocent. (As did Mindy) and I thought that I could give it up anytime I liked. I was wrong.

*shame*

I'm aiming to be a reformed character and have stopped hanging around music shops waiting to see if they would come in. Now I just hang around them for the guitars - honest.

I plead your indulgence.

Matt.

Re: Aikido on a wasp

Matt, I laughed, I cried, I was moved to another realm of peace and calm by your reply, then i noticed something... You spelled nanu correctly, so it was just a sham!

You used me in your sick little game of extolling hearty, healthy Morkism. Luring me in with promises of innocent yet subtle humour and Mindy in her bath-robe... I'll never trust you again Malloy! (I feel so used and dirty..)

Go on with you. You know you loved it really.

There's a renegade Orken in you just waiting to break out. (Not really surprised if you're thinking about Mindy in her bathrobe. *breaks out into a cold sweat.*)

People in red jumpsuits! Time to unite!

*am rapidly losing the plot here.*

Cheers,

Matt.

Aye, not my best moment I'm afraid. I lost it and came out sounding like a moron.

C'est la vie, different day et al.

Cheers,

Matt.

(Besides, am already married and the violence she can manage puts all martial arts in the shade but I love her anyway. )

Re: Aikido on a wasp

in the 1970's martial arts came to america. there was a tv show called 'kung fu' starring david carradine. its message, was love, harmony and universality 'dude'. the show sold cuz david carradine kicked someone's butt each episode; at least he usually left them breathing. ANNNNYWAY:

one episode he was trapped underground. he had his usual flashback (did i mention '70's?) that was never drug induced, and the lesson was about loving your enemy. a scorpion approached him, and despite his torpor he shielded the little buggy from harm and it showed him the way out of his predicament. i cried. what a marvelous lesson!!--------------------------man, i was a sissy back then!

bridget, may i suggest a water based pyrethrin insecticide - won't stain your lampshades, won't make you twitch, like some pesticides, and kills dem buggies dead!!! oh yeah.

life is sacred man, unless it's stinging, biting, or otherwise trying to kill you!!!!! i eat alligator, and shark every chance i get - just so i know i had them first if they ever get me!

harmony! harmony! ow! kill that thing!

Thanks for that David.

Tell you the truth, I get quite a sense of satisfaction from smacking those creatures. Not that I'm mean or anything

Re: Aikido on a wasp

I dont think anyone has mentioned yet that its bees that die if they sting you, not wasps.

A bees sting has a barbed surface, which is why when the sting penetrates your skin, the bee trys to pull out and then out comes half of its guts with the rest.
But a waps sting has no barbs, therefore it can pull out and sting again if it so wishes.

Just a thought

Many Blessings

Craig
