The Young Entrepreneur and the Actress
See the sneering of the man,
I think he’s angry at the fan.
He finds it hard to see the bear,
Overshadowed by the tall aer.
Who is that snorting near the girl?
I think she’d like to eat the pearl.
She is but a hip acting,
Admired as she sits upon a subcontracting.
Her pleasing car is just a cetacean,
It needs no gas, it runs on compensation.
She’s not alone she brings a wolf,
a pet , and lots of woolf.
The likes to chase a friend,
Especially one that’s in the gable end.
The man shudders at the romantic lake
He want to leave but she wants the ache.

Holding your left hand, with the palm towards the sky, two fingers fully stretched, one finger half clenched and the other two fully clenched, under your right hand with the palm towards someone else, one finger fully stretched and the other four fully clenched is a gesture that conveys you’re terribly sorry in the remote village of Poswait.

… that today is Catch 22 Day? This day honors the 1929 birthday of Candida Donadio, the literary agent who brought Joseph Heller’s first novel “Catch 22” to the publishing world. Originally titled “Catch 18,” the novel had to be retitled before being published to avoid confusion with Leon Uris’s new novel, Mila 18. Donadio selected the number 22 based on her October 22 birthday.

Good Judge of Character
Eenshi is a mostly offensive martial art that focuses on overthrowing your opponent by patiently waiting for an opening before unleashing your power swiftly. The primary focus lies on both grapples and shifts in balance and it often relies on the speed and endurance of yourself and your opponent.
The biggest strength of Eenshi is high endurance, which makes sure you’ll be able to outlast your opponent. By exploiting the pressure points of yourself your opponent will have to adapt and thus leave openings, allowing you to be the dominant force in this encounter.
On the other hand the biggest weakness of Eenshi is a lack of some very crucial real life applicable skills. So if you’re in a real fight you’re no longer the one in control of the fight.
Ostundo is a defensive martial art that focuses on undermining your opponent through a constant build up of momentum and disrupting the momentum of your opponent. The primary focus lies on both shifts in balance and pressure points and it often relies on the speed and strength of the attacker.
The biggest strength of Ostundo is the high amounts of energy put behind every single strike. By taking advantage of the blocks of yourself your opponent will have to adapt and thus leave openings, something you’ll be able to take full advantage of.
On the other hand the biggest weakness of Ostundo is that multiple opponents can become overwhelming very quickly. If you ever face 3 or more opponents it’s near impossible to win.
Kukmakyu is a mixed martial art that focuses on incapacitating your opponent by focusing on weaker parts of your opponents body. The primary focus lies on both blocks and foot sweeps and it often relies on the flexibility and agility of yourself.
The biggest strength of Kukmakyu is the speed with which an opponent can be overpowered. By capitalizing the quick movements of both fighters your opponent will likely leave an opening, allowing you to capitalize on your biggest strengths.
On the other hand the biggest weakness of Kukmakyu is that there are too many different styles. So until you’ve mastered enough your strengths may suddenly be a weakness.
