Tolkien Trust Okays Hobbit Movie

jake.tiger Re:What has the Tolkien Trust ever done? (325 comments)

Boo fucking hoo, somebody inherited something of value, and you didn't. Yeah, it's an imaginary something, but in our system even decades old imaginary ideas are valuable. That's life in capitalist, corporatist America. Why single out the Tolkien trust? Because Tolkien should be free to be adapted and misused by every leach out there, not just the official leaches? You REALLY aren't thinking this through.

I for one blame Mickey Mouse.

Military Helmet Design Contributes To Brain Damage

jake.tiger Re:That's a bit harsh... (294 comments)

Actually, the gloves DO cause brain damage. It's nearly impossible to knock someone our bare handed with a blow to the temple, but easy as hell with gloves. The glove protects the hands, not the face. Notice that in college or olympic boxing they wear protective gear on their heads?

Well, I have professional Muay Thai experience and I'd agree with the gloves causing brain damage. However, as far as the general consensus goes, thats because of the gloves flexing and causing vibrations in your head. As well as that you can get hit a lot in the head, I read that it's better to get a hard blow and get knocked out than lots of small ones. Interestingly, I know a lot of sparring partners who dont like sparring in head-gear because they often feel more dizzy afterwards than without. They attribute this to the gear giving even more padding for the vibrations. When it comes to it being nearly impossible to knock someone out bare-handed I gotta disagree. It's got more to do with where you hit, and how prepared the opponent is. As they say, it's the one you dont see that'll knock you out. Obviously there are several other factors as well. In MMA they wear minimal protection on the hands and people get knocked out just fine.

MUDs Turn 30 Years Old

jake.tiger Re:Kobra mudding (238 comments)

I played Basternae and Duris(www.durismud.com) and introduced my friends to these wonderful games. Two of them dropped out of high school because of that! They still mud in fact, every time a new MMO comes out they try it, decide it's too carebear, and end up back at Duris with it's free PK and FULL loot. I thankfully had my major addiction with quake1(quakeworld). I've been clean for 7 years and 43 days now.
