Now I can talk to him about MMA without him giving me a weird face when I say kimura or oma plata.
LOL Omoplata and Gogoplata are good choices to shy away from when you're not talking to someone with knowledge of a ground game. They always look at you like "WTF are you stupid?"


Also, prolyfic, + rep for the effort man

The worst people are the ones that walk around wearin Tapout shirts and you try to start talkin to them about MMA and they say "nah, I just bought the shirt because it looks cool." I've gotten that line about 3 times.

One time the guy was actually wearing KenFlo's signature shirt, and yet had no idea who that was.

The thing that I've noticed about uneducated viewers, is that they compulsively keep asking more ignorant questions. On Saturday this girl was asking why Camoes wouldn't just bite Batman. Then she asked if they were trying to pull of a kama sutra position, showcasing her lack of knowledge in that field too. Which is good, cause idiots shouldn't breed. She kept asking why Hardy wouldn't just get up. Loved 5 rounds of listening to that and her other idiotic questions. It rivaled the discussion that viewers in front of me had about the Undertaker beating everyone in the UFC.

step into the scale and record your weight, put on a lot of clothing and start running in a treadmill, make sure you don't consume any water, you are going to sweat like a pig, after a good while get into the scale again and compare the weights.

After that start loading on carbs and drink water, a lot of it. again step into the scale and compare weights, enjoy.
