I am not saying "Bill is a bad guy".

I don't know.

Just the idea that us Westerners have to help strangers, versus the East Asian idea of only helping those close to you.

As I was saying above, the first rule of surviving an emergency is helping yourself first. Like the air mask demonstration on a plane. Or life vests for drowning.

You save yourself first, before helping others. Otherwise everyone will die.

Helping people is great.

I am just saying we need to really focus on our family, friends, townsfolk, countrymen first.

your view isn't wrong. It's only logical to assist friends first. But beyond that - it depends on how much do you feel a part of your surroundings.

If you're high on nationalism, you'd aim to help your nation. But if you don't feel so strongly about them or decide to help people based on who needs it more, then helping someone far away is fairly logical.

A) you really drank the kool aid
B) Gates had billions unlike us so doing 10% as much as him is kinda tough
C) Gates has fucked more people over and ruined more people's lifes while getting microsoft to be the big evil piece of shit it is today
D) Gates has always shown to be investing in foreign programs where former indistry partners of Gates are also part in so he can pay their companies tax free to do a job, I imagine this isn't some go lucky coincidence (that out of ALL the local companies he can help he helps his friends)
E) He has a track record of doing shitty things, just because he throws lots of money in supposedly good directions deosn't mean he actually deos or that it actually deos anything

Somehow you seem to be thinking that just paying $$$ solves everything and that charities are not simply used as tax free havens (lookup the tax free work Gates could afford pn his private island because of his 'charities' it should still be Googleble)

Stop drinking the kool-aid now son, just put it down

B) What exacly made you assume contributing is only measured in money? But yeah, money can help a lot for those who don't have the money to buy what's needed.

C) idk what microsoft is today, idk what he did to get it this big. And frankly, that is unrelated to the dispute of whether his donations are helping people. Bad-mouthing anyone isn't an argument. Son.

D) I don't even know what you're trying to say. Looks as unrelated to whether he provides long-lasting help to people as your previous "argument" . But while we're at it - oh noes, he tries to pay less taxes to corrupt governments and helps those he can trust, his friends. If only he was like everyone else who loves paying taxes and supported strangers with unknown motives over his friends.

E) Doing shitty things = unable to do unshitty things. Are you into politics by any chance? Because your reasoning is mostly based on bad-mouthing the other side instead of bringing actual arguments.
Furthermore: "just because he donates money, doesn't mean he donates money"
fucking what?
As for whether all the money he donates actually accomplish the goal he states - well that's the thing, SON, charity means transfering the money over to someone. He can't exacly control them after donating them, can he? At best, one can donate money where they believe will serve a good purpouse.


As for your unmarked F)
You seem to think that that shit can get done without paying $$$ ? I've got news for you, SON, modern society largely revolves around money. You can't do shit without money. You can slave around for a decade in africa to help people and it still won't amount to a million dollars worth of help if used for the same things.

There are people who need to do things and they are just as indispensable as the tools, food, water, living quarters and a chance for relaxation those same people need. And last time I checked, those things require money as well. Not to mention that as many as the people going to help poor people are, the quality of their work is far from proffesional. And to get proffesional work done you need to pay them with money.





Let's stop pretending that someone doing manual labor and actively helping all the time somehow tremendously outweights tremendous amount of money. It doesn't.

Expert saber sparring Lee Smith vs Richard Marsden Just take for example how quickly the bouts get decided here. There is no time to be able to move your entire body out of the way while also getting in close enough to be able to grapple them. You need something to be able to block or parry a sharp blade with otherwise you're really fucked trying to fight them unarmed.
#123 - theadricspringheel (09/16/2016) [-]
The only reason they're able to dodge at all in this is when they are near the end of the opponents reach and are simply backing out of the reach of the weapon and backing out of reach will get you nowhere if you have none, yourself.
#121 - theadricspringheel (09/16/2016) [-]
The problem with most of this is that you have to move your entire body faster than the opponent has to move their arm. The only way you're going to manage this when the opponent has an advantage in reach as they do with a sword is really if they overswing or telegraph their attacks which, given that they are likely trained in how to use a sword if they're using it rather than a knife or something else as a weapon. One of the biggest mistakes people make when considering fighting against weapons is how debilitating a reach disadvantage is. The fact is that all the person has to do is be patient and not get backed into a corner and then they can use their reach to essentially prevent you from doing anything.

Jumping over blades and dodging out of the way of strikes in they way you're talking about is almost entirely reserved for film and video games. In reality, people don't have recovery frames, you can't jump over a blade completely unprepared, you would have to telegraph the jump to the point where the opponent would know exactly what you were going to do and then they would likely just feint an attack and then strike you mid-air when you are completely unable to dodge. Putting yourself in the air is the stupidest thing you can do in an actual fight with melee weapons. The opponent knows exactly where you're going to be at every moment until you land and it's so ridiculously easy to land a hit on you when you're in the air.

The stuff you're talking about would only work against people who've never been trained to fight with a sword. Being unable to effectively parry and having no reach leaves you so incredibly fucked fighting against a sword. You also don't grab a blade when it's swinging, but when an opponent is thrusting and it's far, far easier to do that dodging cuts from a blade. You say the opponent will become aware of your intentions if you fail, but really your oppenent is aware of your intentions the entire time with what you described. They will know you're just trying to dodge and close the distance so they will make sure not to overswing, not to telegraph and give you an opportunity to dodge, to never leave themselves too extended so that their reach advantage is never in danger.

Someone who's trained will just move way too quickly for you to be able to do anything really in 99% of the cases when you're unarmed.

Halfswording  Why grabbing a sharp blade in a sword fight is not crazy Also when you're inside their reach, they don't have to swing. If you get close enough to a dude with a sword to be punching them then they can very easily put their sword up against you and just draw or push cut. You can only parry the flat of the sword and even then with just your hands and nothing else you're still likely going to get cut up. The biggest shot you've got is to grap the opponent's blade if you have absolutely no prep time. It's easier especially with trusting swords (Ie: rapiers) and totally possible without cutting yourself if you actually know how. It's also easier to do with single edged blades, but still possible with double edged blades. (Example in the video)

Most of the time people aren't going to have a sword, you're likely dealing with a knife, which has next to no limitations in terms of reach. If you're right on top of you, he can still just stab you in the back or side. If you slip up for a moment or if you don't manage to grapple or disable his knife hand immediately you're absolutely fucked if they're actually willing to stab you. If you are dealing with a sword, you make it sound much easier than it actually is to get inside a weapon's reach. Sure with some dumbass who has no idea how to properly fight with a sword you may have a chance to get in closer than he can swing but if the person's using a sword rather than a knife or anything like that, chances are that they're trained. If you're unarmed and they're trained, they know the debilitating disadvantages you have: 1 you don't have anything to block with and 2: you have no reach. If they know what they're doing, you will never be able to close in on them. If you manage to dodge a trust or swing and close, they'll backstep and get you right back into the position of being unable to hit them when they can hit you. In reality with a sword, like, take off your shirt. Bundle it up and use it as a makeshift shield. Cutting through many, many layers of fabric when they're bundled up isn't easy, especially when they're not attached to a solid surface and at least not without doing a draw or push cut and if they attempt either of those you can use the shirt to bind their weapon. Use it to protect your hand and then you can actually try to grapple their sword arm and disarm them. The shirt also works for a knife attacker as well, or better yet a hoodie or something, the thicker the better. If you use it to bind the knife, you actually stand a chance rather than just getting your ass stabbed.

seems like I missed a vital point in doing this. Naturally, just getting up close to someone with a weapon is dangerous for quite a few reasons.
As you have mentioned, failing to grapple the opponent's hand or running into their weapon while attempting to do so is a major concern.

First of all, you wait for the opponent to strike. Otherwise you're just asking to get hurt. Bar from a horizontal slash with a long blade, if the opponent wants to strike you their weapon-wielding hand will get very close to your position. That is why, if you sidestep their strike, their weapon-wielding hand will be very close to you - enough for you to grab it. If you fail, your course of action should be to immediately back off because another strike is most likely coming.

If you do manage to grab the opponent's hand however, you can easily proceed to do what I described previously. Due to striking you, their hand(s) will be stretched out, leaving their body somewhat out of balance, which will make it easier for you to manipulate your opponent's body - namely, twisting their wrist in this case.



If the opponent is doing a horizontal slash, your options are to either back off and wait for a thurst/overhead swing, squat and either back off or get closer without grappling them first, or jump and attempt any of the squat options but ... if you're not Bruce Lee, I wouldn't recommend trying that.



I'm surprised there's so many people disagreeing with me, it should be no secret to anybody that martial arts aren't some bogus and are very effective at teaching someone how to handle at least a 1v1.

Ofcourse, trying to imitate a martial art move in actual combat without training in it first is very dangerous. As shown in the gif, the easiest way for you to deal with someone is to run away. Stopping someone that is running away is incredibly difficult. Martial arts exist for when you don't run away for whatever reason.



As for your suggestion on grapping the opponent's blade - that's a tall task. It simply demands incredible precision to grasp something as thin as a blade that is moving at such speeds. Furthermore, if you fail the opponent is likely to become aware of your intention and be prepared if that happens. That aside, if you dodge on the side of grasping before the blade, you're going to get cut badly.

remember is a bit of a stretch. Having your body memorise the movements until they become instinctive - that's what training is for.
