Read the Barbara thread... Too much Soap Opera and drama... Kiddies playing at trying to be grown ups. Real or not? Who knows, and they are,
apparently, a tempest in a teapot. At this time, other than "Yes you are ...", "Know I'm not ...", "Your Momma wears combat boots"... "I'm
gonna kill you" ... "No! I'm gonna kill you" ... and like that, there isn't much there that is really worthy of an investigation, in my lowly
opinion. Cold as it sounds, perhaps they ought to all, really, have a go at each other, clean out some of the gene pool, and let folks, skeptics, and
believers, alike, get on with whats gettin' on.
Sandrat ... I kind of agree with you, but there's way too much drama involved (as usual), and not enough open/public knowledge, or acknowledgment,
or evidence other than "he said" ... "she said".
The real problem with the venue that O'Finioan is involving himself in is that, far too often, people like him come out of the woodwork with
extraordinary claims, fears of the government taking their lives, etc. Problem there is that they then tend to either disappear back into the
woodwork (become an non-event) or go on to make a lot of money of folks by carrying their extraordinary claims to the extreme, writing books, making
grade b movies that are sold on websites for outrageous amounts of change, etc.
I think that if, just once, someone, like Duncan, came forward with the extraordinary claims and provided proof, not extraordinary proof, mind you,
but proof, then it might set better with skeptics like yours truly.
Insofar as his martial arts claims, I am continuing to check with my many, and varied contacts in the martial arts world. Nothing yet ... Someone
would have surely heard of him, were he as well rounded and adept at so "many" arts as he claims. But, on the other hand, there are a good many
charlatans, cheaters, and flat out liars out there, claiming high ranking degrees, and such, and even with evidence to that extent, lots of people
still go to see them, plunk down hard earned cash and try to learn to ride the tiger. So ... Who really knows?
