    Interesting. Makes sense in terms of growing a business... but do you think that necessary makes it 'better'?

    Unofficial Jiu Jitsu thread

    I'd be surprised if you can't find somewhere that does no-gi, with open mat and an instructor who is happy to teach whatever it is people need work on or are struggling with that week. I think belts (whether you're physically wearing it or not) are sort of a necessary indicator of skill level when rolling with people you don't know. I've been training 18months and am still a whitebelt and am thankful every time I roll with an upper belt that they know to take pity.

    Unofficial Jiu Jitsu thread

    Haha yes, just keep going even though you don't feel like you're learning anything. Until one day someone else new turns up and they remind you of how retarded you were when you started and you realise you're no longer the worst person there. I don't understand what you mean by tailored though?

    Unofficial Jiu Jitsu thread

    If you're thinking about doing it, just go and do it. You'll still wish you started earlier... Grappling itself will make you stronger, particularly if you're not exercising a lot already. Bodyweight exercises are good. Strength helps when you don't have technique but at the beginning you're far better of concentrating on getting better. Most people seem to train 3-5 times a week, and it's incredibly tiring and will take up a lot of time. Also, remember when you start training you're not going to have a clue what you're doing. For a long time. It's fine, everyone expects this.

    Cameras-No Smart Phones

    You can but it's still super distinctive. The same way you can recognise Sony, Leica etc. I think it's because I;ve always used Canon it takes a bit of getting used to. The wifi, apart from being a little bit clunky, is a really useful feature.

    Cameras-No Smart Phones

    I’ve had the X-Pro2 for a few months and really enjoying it. The size, the feel, the dials and buttons etc. Also, compared to say, Canon, the lenses are super affordable. I’m taking way more photos these days. Its a tiny bit big with the 16mm lens on but a lot less conspicuous when compared to a full on dslr, which would be about 3x the size. Also the electric shutter means it’s silent and so you can hit a whole new level of candid shots without people. I wish the the video quality wasn’t so shit. Assume it’s the lack of IS that does it but can get better footage off my phone. Also sometimes it’s image rendering feels a bit too dramatically Fuji. But the fact it almost feels like a film camera also is a bonus.
  12. This is vaguely related to this thread...I started drinking coffee about 5 years ago for supposed health benefits and to assist with intermittent fasting. My natural tolerance to caffeine is low but a typical day would be between 5-10 cups and think I became addicted to the jittery feeling. Morning anxiety slowly crept up on me and I couldn't figure out why it was happening but it became normal so I lived with. I eventually gave up coffee completely after wanting to for over a year - but struggled because it's free at work (and so delicious). Within a few days I was going to sleep because I felt sleepy (not just because it was late and was worried about not getting enough sleep), sleeping deeper, waking up earlier more refreshed and the morning anxiety had 90% gone. It hindsight, it seems obvious but it became a normal feeling I didn't really realise what was happening. Anyway, after a couple of weeks I've gone back to a more normal sensible probably about 4 cups per week. So yeah, if you notice you feel like shit all the time - try cutting out any stimulants.

    Police shoot double amputee in wheelchair

    I know this goes without saying but the police in your country are beyond belief. In europe you obviously get police who act like douchebags but I've never seen or heard anything like the scale of america. random killings, tazings, violence, arrests, brutality. Hopefully america gets a grip of its police force and this shit comes to an end and one day you can tell your grandkids about the kind of shit that used to happen in the old days and they will think you were a bad ass for surviving.

    The best of Google Video and YouTube

    Funniest thing i've seen in a while... A mockumentary about a West London pirate radio crew which started off as a youtube mini-series... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14D2WFuLCWo And has just been picked up by the BBC for a pilot: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p00v5jj0/People_Just_Do_Nothing/ (You may need to be in UK to watch BBC)
