Re: McDojo Fees

Right let me get this straight.....

Decimal point, birthday three zero .1982, no hang on.......

Brithday, decimal point, where I went on holiday....no that can't be right..........Holiday, birthday....no, where have I got holiday from?

Aha! Dog's name, decimal point, birthday, three zeros? No that's not it...........

so K = (e+r)+(pc) to the power of 3.......hmmmm, bit long division, times by 5.............

so the answer's: Belgium, 9 and a bag of crisps. How much is a Belgium?


Please leave my kneecaps alone.

Aikido doesn't work? My Aikido works, what on earth are you practicing?!

Cheers,

Note to anyone not native to the UK. If you want to be totally bamboozled, check out the UK's pre-decimal currency. Going decimal was resisted for quite a long time by the natives as the new currency was seen as too complicated.

The bater system is the only way to go to keep things real - I'll swap you three shiho-nages and a used hakama for a decent yonkyo and small green teapot with lid.

You don't tell me what to do, Emma.

Besides, I don't weigh 200 pounds. I'll have to put on some weight first.

I tried calling, but ended up talking to some very friendly lady in Dheli, we got on quite well, and we even talked about meeting up, but due to the rather expensive call rate, I can't now afford the black belt I was promising myself

You don't scare me.

Not, because I'm tough or anything; there's an ocean between us.
