In this thread take two countries or two gorups of countries and guess who would win in a hypothetical war. I'll start, Brazil vs Argentina and Chile.

If you're talking about sports, maybe. There's also competing in pure wrestling sports that don't involve strikes like Judo, catch wrestling, shoot wrestling, etc. Your potential for different sorts of limb injuries tend to be a bit higher with wrestling though but the danger of head trauma isn't so much. There's also plenty of sports with rules that focus on points rather than knockout blows such as Taekwondo. Alternatively, if you simply avoid sports there are plenty of martial arts that constrain their discipline to teach useful skills without putting yourself in as serious bodily harm.

Ive done martial arts for years and I think its garbage. Theres no reason to watch it over any other competitive martial arts match. The rules are garbage and the fights uninteresting as fuck. Also it’s 100% not “more close to street fighting!!!” Just pure capitalist spectacle and a worse one than boxing.

Watch K1 max instead.

my friend, you situation my seem hard to get out from but it is not. The simplified way to get out of anything is first: Endure and try to surive, then to try to increase your power over your surrodings and life. If you have a bad home situation mby to try to move out. Maybe it is to stay home and get a job so you can start doing shit in life. Then when you have power to change and decide what happens in your life you can change your life to what you want. Here are some links that maybe intrests you. It has some real good info:

all of these are about your brain and things you can do to improve your brain chemistry so you can get out of depression. I have started to think this is a big problem in our world, and the cause of many ills. Dont give up hope brother! Survive and then thrive. Walk if you cant run, if you cant walk, then crawl. One day at a time. One hour at a time. You can make it brother.

No, it means you're sane. If you didn't know, Lynch didn't participate in most of S2 (if you can't tell) and only came back to direct the S2 finale. The middle block of S2 (James, etc.) is universally agreed to be hot garbage. Power through, get to the end, and enjoy S3.

It's not so much the character as it is a complete break from the tone and pacing already established in the series. Besides, if you know it's coming it will never be as bad as the first time when you have to double take like "am I watching the right show or is this a mixup"?

Baseball players make everything look easy. Honestly it is hard for someone to like baseball from just watching it on TV or a stream. You have to have played it or at least grew up watching it. Most people who don't like (not trying to be an asshole) it don't understand it.

months later, during a amphetamine/ketamine binge, he discovers an insanely innovative and groundbreaking implementation of CRISPR modification technology
he contacts a student he knew from the university to assist him with his project, and together they each help each other mature and cope in various ways

Literally watercolors. To paint with watercolors you'll end up thinking about how water interacts with paper, which is a relatively novel thing to model that most people aren't used to considering. Paint the world outside your front door (sunsets are fun), or make a shitty sketch of a robot or a unicorn in pencil and then color it in. Also, they're cheaper than acrylics.

Modern soccer is a joke. “Jogo bonito?”—not anymore. Soccer is marred, among other things, by the beguiling act of—you already know it—diving. Take the 2021 Euro—almost every game here has been decided by a player diving and getting an undeserved call. The most striking example occurred today (i.e., July 07, 2021) in the Semifinal, when a blatant dive in the penalty area by an English player (i.e, Stirling) led to England’s undeserved win over Denmark. Diving affecting major games is not a recent phenomenon—it has been ongoing for years now. Take, for example, the “No Era Penal” incident back in 2014, wherein the infamous dive by the Dutch player Arjen Robben led to Mexico’s undeserved exit in the Round of 16. Hell, back in 2011, researchers published a paper (hereinafter named “Gwendolyn”; see link below) which studied diving in soccer. The paper found the simple fact that players dive when the benefits outweigh the costs of doing so. See Gwendolyn. Keeping this in mind, Gwendolyn suggested that increasing the ability of referees to detect dives and increase the punishments associated with diving may deter players from doing so. See id. But look where we are ten years later. If anything, the problem has only gotten worse—even with the introduction of VAR! Will there ever be an end to this quandary?
I resoundingly say, “No.” The tools are there, but the buffoonery continues. Clearly, the game has vitiated into a shell of whatever former glory it had, and there are no signs of improvement on the horizon whatsoever. Some people may blame the players, but I say to them to heed the old adage: “Don’t blame the player, blame the game.” Indeed, soccer—in its current, professional state at least—actively encourages diving, and I will not judge a player for maximizing his chances to win when his livelihood is on the line. Something must change, but will it? We all know it won’t. I am not here to propose solutions or even suggest that they are any. I am only here to point out that soccer is terminally ill—already dead, I should say—and it’s time to abandon ship. Watch a different sport, pick up a hobby, or actually play soccer in real life—anything beats this facade.
