re: Galveston sand vs Biloxi sand - MWP
Galveston to basically anywhere just North of Port A suck. The only saving grace is you can drive on them which helps if you want to surf fish or have a solid base of operations for ice chests and other beach stuff without having to carry shite very far but otherwise just a tremendous eye sore. ...

re: One of the most humbling experiences as a man is realizing you aren’t the same anymore. - MWP
I was probably my strongest at 40 natural and that is comparing myself to 20 something year old me on gear but extremely naive. I caveat that by saying there is definitely something to continuous strength training with no extended gaps of non training. In fact I’m not terribly far off some of my l...

re: Armageddon is the finest film ever made - MWP
I love Armageddon and will religiously watch it every time I see it when I’m scrolling through the TV. It brings me back to a time when I was out in the field working pipelines and it was almost a trainwreck every other day but we worked shite out. I mean the film is somewhat realistic until they ...

re: BJJ practitioners: any concern about carotid artery dissection? - MWP
Congratulations, that is an awesome accomplishment. I’m in line for mine. It’s been a long journey that I’m positive is just a new beginning instead of a milestone. Out of curiosity, who are you under or what school? ...

re: BJJ practitioners: any concern about carotid artery dissection? - MWP
[quote]I hope you've made a full recovery. Any lingering aspects? [/quote] Not really. It was kind of humbling at first because I lost most of my upper body strength initially but it came back to about 90% through mostly decompression. Seriously not willing to scare you away from jits though. ...

[quote]However, it's not the pain I'm afraid of - it's the loss of mobility due to possibly serious injury. I'm most worried about my neck - where I have some tearing an dessication of discs that already limits me in some activities.[/quote] It is a valid concern. Right after I got my Blue Belt ...

re: BJJ practitioners: any concern about carotid artery dissection? - MWP
Never really even thought about this honestly. I’m more worried about the 2 stripe white belt spazzing out on me. I guess if it really bothered me, I would tap the moment someone locked in a choke on me instead of fighting every sub like it’s a life or death outcome. ...

re: WM Open is much trashier than LIV - MWP
It’s a little over the top for a tour stop but I am quite positive I would have a different opinion if I was there in person. On a slight hijack, what’s the deal with everyone wearing these hoodies? That shite looks like something you would wear to the gym, not a golf course. ...

re: Did you take martial arts lessons at any point in your life, and which one(s)? - MWP
[quote]i'm sure you'd take Royce Gracie[/quote] I think most guys getting into BJJ from the late 90's into the early 2000's were cult followers of Royce. However, it's funny that he wasn't even the best brother. They picked him because he was the less skilled of them all. I am under Royler and...

re: How many good, old-fashioned fist-fights have you been in? - MWP
In a ring or cage, a bunch, since I boxed Golden Gloves and then got into MMA. Outside of that, one in high school after football with a teammate and maybe 10 during college at bars. One of those was a legit standup fight that never went to the ground which is unusual. I was already a pretty ...
