I honestly do not have time right now to read this entire thread,
How can you not have time to READ, but you have time to WRITE? Which takes longer?
but has anyone mentioned that short hair in large part came about for a military purpose? If the enemy can grab your hair in hand to hand combat, it
gives them a huge advantage. I'd think that would be obvious.
Yes, anyone has. And that has been already debunked.
On the surface, the claim looks good. But what kind of an advantage is it to lock your hand to the opponent's head? I mean, while you are grabbing the
hair, there's a thousand things the opponent can do to you. Besides, EVEN if we take it as the truth, then wouldn't having long hair make for better
fighters? I mean, if you are at a slight disadvantage, you are going to have to learn to fight better.. if you are too trusting in the power of
baldness, you might get complacent and lose the fight because you underestimated your opponent.
Not that a FIGHT-based argument has anything to do with whether a long hair is better for ESP abilities and sensitivity to the nature.
As for the guy who claims to have been bald and known about the SWAT team arriving (why would that even happen?), surely that can happen for other
reasons, like a coincidence? Also, maybe 'losing the hair naturally' is different from 'artificially cutting it off before its time'.
I mean, this obviously didn't happen in the jungle - maybe bald people are more attuned to the artificial city life than the nature..
Also, if you know that SWAT team is coming to your house, would you really rather a) go as far from your house as possible to the opposite direction
of their 'sensed' arrival or b) go sit on a lawn chair with a beer on your hand?
Come on, that's PRETTY TRUSTING attitude that there are absolutely no trigger-happy, egomaniac lunatics among the team, because we all know that only
harmonious and good-willed human beings are accepted to SWAT.. so you have, in this world, a complete, 100% trust that SWAT team will treat you like a
human, respect your rights, listen to you, chat with you, and not take you away, never to be seen or heard of again? This man's trust in the fairness
and goodness of the SWAT is more remarkable than the ability to sense their coming!
Not saying anyone is lying, but perhaps slight exaggeration might be happening, or something..?
I think that non-argument about the 'advantage' of grabbing the hair was invented so that people would succumb to the barber's chair without
questioning the procedure (whose intent is something completely different, and way more sinister - to complete making humans into unfeeling, inhuman
killer robots, you have to destroy their sensitivity, ESP abilities, individuality, looks, et cetera).
Bruce Lee once said, that a man with a knife in a fight is at a disadvantage compared to a man without any weapons whatsoever. Why or how could this
Well, psychologically, the knife wielding man only has one weapon. A martial artist has four weapons. Surely four weapons is better than one!
Surely this same principle happens in a bald vs. long hair-fight. The bald one thinks his baldness gives him an advantage, gets complacent and doesn't
try his best, while the hairman knows that the opponent probably tries to use the hair to his advantage, giving him a psychological edge. He is
prepared for that eventuality, he knows what to do. So when the moment comes, the opponent has lost the movability of the hair-grabbing arm, while
exposing himself in the process, to be attacked freely by the man whose all limbs are completely free!
How exactly is grabbing hair an advantage, could you please elaborate, now? Don't just spout the "obvious" clichés without thought put to them. Do
you have reliable statistics (I know, oxymoron) of any fights that were won/lost because of hair/lack of hair? Can you show me how that works in real
reality? Why didn't anyone think to use Bruce Lee's relatively long hair against him? HMM?
Shouldn't he have lost every match against a balder man?
The fact that he didn't, shows your argument to be just a parroted army cliché, and thus, defacation of a male bovine.
Besides, if you let an opponent's hand so close to your head that he can grab your hair, you deserve to lose the fight.
