    I have friends who are actually still angry about that. I'd never seen Georges' vid, but I'd seen the walk in when it happened.

    I find that hilarious.

    I'm able to listen to and understand Georges' French interviews, and his personality comes off very different in those. He's still mostly the same at heart: respectful, self-aware, friendly, and still a bit dry. However, he's nowhere near as mechanical and uncharismatic. The fact that he's very repetitous and (what I find to be) bordering on corny and cliché is totally a product of English not being his first language.

    I think people overlook this in part because his accent isn't that bad, he can usually express his thoughts without hesitating,and he seems to understand English perfectly (which is always much easier), and in part because many people don't speak a second language, so they don't quite understand.

    I can communicate fine in French, I have to at work almost every day. Like Georges, I can get all my thoughts accross without struggling. However, I basically find it impossible to be funny in the same ways I natutally am (or think I am) in English.

    So yes, I also always took it as Georges basically saying 'Oh yeahhhhhh I totes paid someone to kiss Penn.'

    the psychological part is the most important here. Maybe he will be scared to throw kicks again. One thing is to throw them against a ball, and different thing will be to throw them at a leg
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Well a lot of people included experts like bas rutten have said that he threw the kick incorrectly in order tog enerate more speed. So from a psychological perspective he can view it as "ok i will move my hips in when I kick so my leg wont shatter into pieces again".

    It is not as if leg kickng in general will result in that terrible injury a combiation of improper technique and a perfectly time check is what did it.

    I'm sorry if you're still offended at hearing that you aren't funny.

    I hope you can have a nice day, despite that devastating information.

    See, this is what is pathetic about you. You do this passive aggressive shit with sniggles half the time, and it sucks.
    I'm anything but butt hurt. I'm kind of amazed that I didn't know it was a myth, but I'm comfortable admitting I was entirely wrong about it.

    But you still think you're funny, and you haven't posted anything even remotely amusing in months.

    And reporting Kevo and Mikeyknox for calling Baroni douche? I explained the difference between calling someone a cheater and a douche, but you were too infantile to read it, so I'll make it short and simple for you: That's a bitch move, and it needs to stop. You've been warned.

    Haha. Yes, please do inform your friends about the truth. This is his attempt at sarcasm (and I totally agree with Swift regarding his inability to express his personality in the same way in English):
