Futcha, it appears one thing you didn't learn from karate was respect.

Well, the way you seem on here would make my old karate teacher cringe. He taught us things about respect and self-control. You seem like you'd go looking for a fight.

I agree. He's never been to karate class nor ever stepped foot on ice.

i understand what you are saying, we have had it so good for so long we have lost our ID
(immigrant drive) the ability to work 10 hrs then go to school 5 and scrimp and save to pay for everything cash.
the school where this is learned is called school of hard knocks.
special foot note ---school of hard knocks does not produce success stories if the student is full of rage and anger at an imaginary cause of all his woes.

Of course most of you aren't going to agree with me on this site because this is a yuppie site, but the realest people are those who grew up in New York all the way into the mid-90s. People in Phoenix don't know real, people in Seattle don't know real, people in LA don't know real, people in Miami don't know real, people in Atlanta don't know real. New Yorkers know real, the true New Yorkers with balls. I'd rather New York be 7 million still and still real than it be 8 million now and be gentrified.


Futurecop,, do you have any imperfections? Is there any sense in which you are not iinfallably perfect? Now you are telling us that you are better than anybody else in the world because you have New York City roots. Are you for real?

The answer to this will be interesting, though I can imagine what it will be. This thread is garbage and should die, yet I can't help staying tuned.
