    • Jedi Ethnicity (Last post by MartaLina)
    • Excellent , i see no need to mention a "race" i am a jew so that would be my "race" then would not it , but after WW2 my family never filled in "jew" anywhere ever again and like you said "human" or "unknown" as for religion you dont have to mention that anywhere anymore but if you mention it , it has to be an acknowledged religion, this gives the funny situation that i can be a Pastafarian ( member of the church of the flying Spagettimonster) but i cannot be a Jedi yet ..loll yet !
    • Acupuncture (Last post by Yasuo Tanoshii Hideaki)
    • I made several positive experiences with acupuncture. One of the most impressive situations was my first time I was treated with an acupuncture needle. Back then I got a lumbago doing gardening. My back hurt like hell an I was hardly able to move. I told my family doctor (who was also pain therapist) and she asked me if she can try something. She pinned a small acupuncture needle right into the pain point. After a few seconds the point where the needle was pinned started to prickle and a feel of warm spread out from this point. The hurt was gone and I was able to move without any obstructions again. In the modern western medicine you usually get a heat therapy for this. E. g. you get a balm to stimulate the blood flow and some time under an infrared lamp. But this is not nearly so effective like this small needle prick in my dorsal.
    • The Ultimate History Lesson: A Weekend with John T... (Last post by Lightstrider)
    • Great stuff here for everyone. Intro + Hour 1 of 5 ] John Taylor Gatto (born December 15, 1935) is an American author and former school teacher with nearly 30 years of experience in the classroom. He devoted much of his energy to his teaching career, then, following his resignation, authored several books on modern education, criticizing its ideology, history, and consequences. He is best known for the underground classic "Dumbing Us Down: the Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling", and The Underground History of American Education: A Schoolteacher’s Intimate Investigation Into the Problem of Modern Schooling, which is sometimes considered to be his magnum opus. He was named New York City Teacher of the Year in 1989, 1990, and 1991, and New York State Teacher of the Year in 1991. What does the school do to children? Gatto asserts the following in "Dumbing Us Down": It confuses the students. It presents an incoherent ensemble of information that the child needs to memorize to stay in school. Apart from the tests and trials, this programming is similar to the television; it fills almost all the "free" time of children. One sees and hears something, only to forget it again. It teaches them to accept their class affiliation. It makes them indifferent. It makes them emotionally dependent. It makes them intellectually dependent. It teaches them a kind of self-confidence that requires constant confirmation by experts (provisional self-esteem). It makes it clear to them that they cannot hide, because they are always supervised. He also draws a contrast between communities and “networks,” with the former being healthy, and schools being examples of the latter; in the United States, networks have become an unhealthy substitute for community.

    • Robes and Sabers (Last post by Competent)
    • Quote: In my path the robes and sabers are purely symbolic images... I honestly agree with this, being that they are something we are naturally associated with, and they carry good symbols with them as well.
    • Saber Flourish Gif (Last post by RyuJin)
    • they can also be used to release excess momentum should a strike miss....ie. you strike from left shoulder towards right hip, the blade gets blocked of deflected you can use the flourish to bring the blade to bear again...taking the momentum of the blade and redirecting it.... when i do flourishes i tend to use a heavy blade for the wrist strengthening...but when i spar i tend to keep the flourishes to a minimum....usually only using them in the above manner...

    • May the 4th be with you. (Last post by Trisskar)
    • Quote: Not sure what the anger is for. What anger? Or are you just implying an emotion into my text without knowing my true emotion? ;) Quote: If you want the "Jedi Community" to do more good, fix it. Hahahaha :laugh: Ah Force.... :) such easy two words to say 'Fix it....' I am not angry. Or grumpy. Or negativly in any condition as it were. In fact...I am in an empty and quite house for a change and quite happy! I am Just speaking as it is. Nor did I say it was a bad thing either ;) The Jedi Community does as it does.... And all those nasty Role Players that dress up and goof around....well :) They do as they do. And a large portion of them....do a whole lot of good and deserves a good 'tip of the old cap' as it were. May the 4th has sort of become that. Thats all I am saying :)
    • From time to time a poem (Last post by Lykeios)
    • For the Thin Line of Gray I have enshrined the future but have not forgotten my past My way is clear and the waiting begun I walk softly I tread the dimly lit ways in the quiet places Yet I roar with passion when challenged My guard is strong, my will and wits keenly focused For I watch the waters and defend those I love The time is here Quietly I begin to walk On the edge of gray tides and moonlit shores Here I walk like the rolls of thunder and move with the swiftness of the kite My ego I seek to leave behind in that Never forgotten past Of which I still dream but never again Shall seek
