    You can believe it...but you cannot know it.


    I think having faith in anyone but a loved one or close friend is naive.

    So I trust nothing outside of that group without proof (unless I have to trust them/it for some reason).

    But, each to their own.

    In my younger years I was a hippie. Then married. Kids was born and responsibilities began. Began to develop are right-wing views. Which over the years, become very conservative.

    Is that you throwin' down the gloves? 'cause I am in! You could get here in 20 hours or so... depending on flights and headwinds.

    I played one tourney and they gave me a rating in the 1200's. I beat all the guys on the UCLA Table Tennis Club the week before.

    I have those quick hands too... something false and I snatch it before most know it even fell... used to freak my ex out when I would do that because she was shocked out of still talking. I am better at extreme sport stuff though... big wave body surfing (the Wedge, Newport Beach), downhill mountain biking, rock climbing... stuff when it is just reactions and your life on the line. I am no junky... just find it fun. And I am fast... one of the faster white guys out there. All this makes me simply awesome. Awesome I tell you.

    1200 is respectable. My kid is playing about 1400 but his rating is a couple hundred points behind. I made a big jump 25 years ago when I took out the then top two cadets in the USA who both were over 2450. sadly I went to the 93 US Open after three weeks fighting viral than bacterial pneumonia and had no stamina-I lost deuce in the third to the NYC #1 Fernandez who was 2500+ and same with 2350 Collegiate Champ Sean Lonergan and lost three deuce games to the Mexican #1 in the 30+ third round. lost a bunch of points to lower rated players though a few points here and there I would have been over 2300. About 1800-1900 now. DOn't play tournaments these days

    when I got married, we went on a Royal Caribbean Cruise and they had a ping pong tournament. I was not allowed to use the pair of paddles I had with me-though I often played with this German guy who was about a 1650 on that 10 day cruise. But when they had the tournament the ship was moving and it was windy. The German guy got beat by the guy I played in the finals and we played one game to 21. He was up like 11-6 but we changed sides and I got the side where the wind was coming at me-meaning I could hit hard and the ball would stay on the table (and I was a really good hard bat player at on time). I won 21-11-everything this guy hit was blown long off the table on that side.

    I played him later in the cruise when we were docked at one of the ports -he wasn't bad and he too had his own paddle but he had never seen some of the serves I had (reverse Pendulum) and missed almost all of them

    I went on an Alaskan Cruise and the ship is crewed by Philippino's, if you can believet that, and I spent a lot of time playing them in the crew galley... that was fun. My university had a ton of Vietnamese students and I was the only white guy that got into those games simply because I approached them to play. I think that I should have played some more tourney's and seen what I could have done.

    when I was in Law school, I was on one of the very best university teams in the USA-before Texas Wesleyan or Lindenwood started recruiting TT Players. We had a team that would have made the UN proud-team members including international level competitors from Iceland, India and Ghana, Me, a Chinese-American guy from Jersey, an Israeli-Canadian guy from Toronto and a former US #1 Junior from the Middle of Nowhere Pennsylvania who had beaten both the Boggan boys at the US Teams.

    We would expect nothing less from a scion of the most prestigious family in the state.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
