    I like Segal's style....but it's hard to swallow cause in real life he's a whinning, pussy, fraidy cat involved in all kinds of weird hollywood type activities. And anyone that would let themselves get as fat and slow and ugly as he has in the last 5 years it's hard to believe they have any real mettle.

    Where as Chuck....was tough, is tough, will always be tough. A real world champion that proved it in the ring years on end.

    And Bruce Lee was stoned most of the time....all you had to do was sneak up on his ass and hit him with a pipe....really hard...several times....in the eye or something. Then stab him and shoot him just to make sure.

    Hey, I'm not saying Segal's movies were good. Where other martial artists moves were predictably boring, often Segal's movies were predictably boring. I'm only talking about the karate here. Lee was cat quick and there was POWER. He was also one of the best with weapons I've ever seen, especially nunchucks. As far as Norris goes, he fought mostsly point tournaments, although they used to allow substantial contact but not full contact. Point fighting <sucks> isn't really what karate is about as you only have to touch your opponent and there doesn't have to be any ill effect on them for you to gain the point. I'd rather watch a good kick boxing match. I did like Norris in his role as the hired hit man on Lee (Enter the Dragon), that was a pretty good fight. Real karate is ripping, tearing, breaking, basically it's refined street fighting, nothing pretty about it. Jet Li showed off his stuff in that Danny Glover/Mel Gibson second movie....crap, I can't think of the name of it.

    Hey, something different here, but I was talking to a guy the other day who was asking me about my back operation and I told him the worst thing about that whole deal was that it made me feel vulnerable, something I'm not used to. He said, "Gettin' old ain't for sissies"...great line, it isn't!!

    It really ain't for sissys....as you get older you get violated in more horrible ways than you can even imagine when you are young. By the time you are 60 you're probably just wishing not to die of something related to your asshole.

    Segal's style is definately the most fun to watch....I know nothing about martial arts but when I watch him what he does looks very efficient and very sensible from a physics point of view. Very little wasted motion or energy, nice close-in stuff. And his early movies had some great fight choreography. How about that Bill "Superfoot" Wallace....he always seemed all business to me.

    Doug, how many times have you been under general anastysia (sp)? It's been about six times for me so far...worse case was about 3 times in ten days. It does something to you...permanently...to your mental state...we'll talk sometime. Not necessarily bad things or good things...just tweaks you a bit.

    a real hero type . . .
    BOISE, Idaho - David Bleak, a Korean War medic who received the Medal of Honor for rescuing a comrade amid hand-to-hand combat in 1952, has died. He was 74.

    Bleak died Thursday at Lost Rivers District Hospital in Arco of complications from emphysema, Parkinson's disease and diabetes, family members said.

    Bleak was a 20-year-old sergeant in the medical company of the 223d Infantry Regiment, 40th Infantry Division, when he volunteered to go with a reconnaissance patrol, U.S. Army records say.

    The Army's description of his actions on June 14, 1952, said Bleak killed two of the enemy with his bare hands and a third with his trench knife, and then shielded a comrade from the impact of a grenade that had fallen near the man's helmet.

    Though he was wounded in the leg, Bleak began to carry the injured soldier, the medal citation said. Attacked by two enemy soldiers with bayonets, "he grabbed them and smacked their heads together, then carried his helpless comrade down the hill to safety."

    Bleak returned to the U.S. soon after. In 1953, President Eisenhower awarded him the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military honor, at a White House ceremony.

    Born in Idaho Falls in 1932, Bleak enlisted in the Army at age 18. He was singled out for medic training because he was tall and strong, said his son Bruce Bleak of Moore.

    After his military service, Bleak worked as various jobs, including running a dairy farm and serving as a technician at the Idaho National Laboratory, a nuclear research compound, his son said.

    He called his father a humble man who felt others had acted just as courageously but without recognition.

    "He always said he carried the medal for them as well," the younger Bleak said.

    Bleak is survived by his wife of 45 years, Lois; three sons; a daughter; two brothers; nine grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren, Bruce Bleak said.

    According to the Web site http://www.medalofhonor.com, there are 125 living Medal of Honor recipients. In all, nearly 3,500 such medals have been awarded since the Civil War

    Bleak was the real deal and did well on the test.

    JB, That was my first time being put under. They billed my insurance company like $1450 for 148 minutes!!! I could have gotten them a much better deal privately. It's funny, but I almost went into becoming an anasthesiologist, but I couldn't spell the freaking word consistently. I should have, then I could have a company in which I could bill insurance companies $10 a minute. I think any kind of drug taking alters your mind, but then that's why I do the occasional doobie.
