Ahh nice man. I just got my black belt in Choykwondo. I've done bjj for about 8 years now, Choykwondo for around 12, and wrestling + Judo for 6.

I also started learning some krav maga and it's awesome. If any of you guys are interested in a self defense art look it up.

Nice!

Although I never got into comics, a friend of mine had the old Tick comics and insisted I read them. I did. I actually did get a kick out of them. haha.

It wasn't long after that they had the live action show and then the cartoon. The live action was alright but the cartoon was hilarious.


SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!

Really? Age does not determine preference.
Actually it sorta does. Underage age means that your favorite beer is What Ever You Can Get.

Yeah...Ive been dying to talk hockey lately and ESPN doesnt report on squat. And when they do its 12 hours late and then you have to sift through the riffraff to attempt an intelligent conversation
