Some useful information for you, Bert.
Playing hockey does not teach you how to cut somebody up with your fists, while avoid getting hit yourself.
If it did, hockey players would be champion boxers.
I was taught such things by a professional from age 3.
It helped I had natural aptitude for it, not to mention growing to 6'7, 320.
Just don't zig when you should zag, when the bullets start flying. And you may live to talk about it.

What kind of work do you do, Anon? You are cognizant of the fact that in these days your work environment will determine how much of this physical world you will actually experience? The difference between seeing and reading about?
Are you the kind of guy that believed uri geller when he failed spectacularly on the tonight show because of, as he put it, bad energy?

If you understood what you copied, Bert Legume, you would realize it does nothing to my argument.
You're a funny little guy.
Ahh, such a poor loser, laying on the ground bleeding and claiming you won the fight, too funny.

Fine. You drive him there. He won't be able to drive home.
It would be extremely comical to watch you even try to stand on a pair of skates let along actually move, forget about fighting. HA ha ha ha, I'd give a weeks pay to witness that.

His interpretation of what I said is wrong. More of his projecting his thoughts to others.
I explained it a bit more in my previous post. Dave can be quite ferocious when confronted with something unknown. Took a higher authority to make him behave. The only flash of light in the experience.
I did play with it a bit with a poster or two. The explanation why they would suddenly get this urge to be flaming fags after I left next time. I think GML was the one I did that to.
Not my bod or identity.
I would have laughed like a hyena.
So you have fantasies about assuming control over someone else's body and forcing them to perform homosexual acts, with you "piloting" them the whole time.

I've never watched those things.

I have this inherent distrust of any theories, fads, etc passed over via the mass media. There is profit motives always involved.

Timmy, you make a better rube than me. I'm not real gullible.

Try standing on a half inch piece of sharpened steel on an ice surface, just standing, not moving, now try moving a few feet, now try fighting someone extremely skilled in both skating and fighting, have done both since they were kids. You'd be trying to not fall on your ass while this beast puts you down and out with one punch. I have to warn you, trying to pick your teeth up off a frozen surface is much harder than you think, good luck!!!! Tip.........put your beeding mouth over the teeth, the warm blood will make picking up your teeth easier.

Hockey players play hockey, that is their passion, they have no interest in boxing professionally. Not all hockey player are enforcers, but the ones that are, are frightening, keep your feet on the ground, stay off the ice, its really bad for your health, not to mention the fee's you'll be paying to your local dentist.

No fantasies about such, but a particularly obnoxious Topix atheist may stir up my creative side.

I was asking because you implied in an earlier post that psychic phenomena was truly not an "on demand" thing, lending credence to the idea that psychics magically feel "bad energy" when their abilities are tested.

Quantum physics can have an effect on performance. The observation.

Media psychics are BS.

Another question my Atheist friends.
What happened to the evolution of the scorpions prey? After 430 million years the prey of scorpions should have built up immunities and defenses against the scorpions complex neurotoxins.
One of their favorite meals is crickets. The cricket doesnÂ’t have a chance if the scorpion nails it with its stinger.
Oh Oh, Eagle, your in trouble now, evolution point to how closely you are related to the great apes, and now we find that YOU, little old eagle are also very closely related to..........wait for it..........the Zebrafish, yep its true. 70% of protein-coding human genes are related to genes found in zebrafish, and 84% of genes known to be associated with human diseases have a zebrafish counterpart. They are remarkably biologically similar to people and share the majority of the same genes as human, thats why they have become so important in medical research, and have already made great strides in fighting cancer. Proof that all living things on this planet evolved for a common ancestry. It also point out how important evolution is in medical research. Now because evolution is responsible for fighting cancer and other diseases, it's ok for you to chant in a religious manner
evoooooooooooluuuuution, then say amen!!!!
