I've often gotten hilarious responses on some of my Tai Pos - most of the time all unintentional.
And lots of Bozos have trolled me on it too, which I quite enjoy (for obvious reasons. Hehe).
Look, when you're writing in the flow, friend, the only way you SHOULD write - it happens. And if it is 't happening, and you're obsessing about every single mis-spelt word or punchooation or what not, then you're not doing it right.
Really, you aren't (if thats you).
Sure, I dont put typos in emails on purpose, and often times while writing I'll fix them, but most of the time I don't
They're there for a reason.
I'm here to WRITE.
Not fix bloody tai pos that hardly matter anyway.
Like John Walker said in his review for Animal Kingdom Workouts ...
This is one of your best books to date, clearly you understand what it takes to create the perfect beast.
Mastery of one's own bodyweight is so much more important than some random goal of adding 10kg to your bench press.
Moving your bodyweight with strength, grace and power is how the human animal was built to move.
People, do yourself a favour and buy this book and learn the lessons in it so you too can join the ranks of the superhumans. Yet another masterpiece Rahul.
Glyn Schofield, you're a clown and quite clearly you've never worked out in you pathetic little life, because if you had you'd know what's important in a "training book" which is the training information it supplies not whether it has typographical errors, "I mean come on man training books are about training not writing style".
And he's right. Hehe. Glyn is indeed what he said and more ... And it truly IS one of my best books ever - literally a behemoth. 68 exercises no less then, you get to the workouts which most people, even advanced gym trainees and crossfitters give up after a couple of rounds.
Like Charles Mitchell said (I dont know if he has this one, I think NOT) ...
"The only reason you're not as rich as Jeff Bezos is because most people look at your books and say F that!
Never become a pussy trainer so you can sell more books!
Keep challenging us!"
Showl will, my friend!
As you correctly said, thats me.
And always will be.
As for the Bezos comparison, hey - I've got time on my hands. Hehe. ;)
But anyway, yeah - taipos.
Like who CARES.
Especially in emails ...
In books, I do my best to ensure that there are no mis-spellings and some slip through anyway, so be it.
Now, last night, a guy - a great guy, I believe - was translating one of my fiction books about a lady called "Pooja" (a vegetable seller I wrote about) (another one of those REAL stories) into Portugese.
Which is great, but ... then I got this from him.
His initial email to me mentioned somethign about tai-pos which I ignored ...
I shoudn't have. Hehe.
Looks like I'll bother you a lot.
Page 3 line 14. odessey
Page 4 line 12. an dfeeling
Page 4 line 18, thats
Are these up to what I've already done. As more come, I'll tell you.
Now, one doubt. Page 5 line 21, he switched back to A.M. I couldn't figure it out.
I guess the first is understandable - he did not know the meaning of the word, so asked - and hey. I love that!
It shows he's INTERESTED in doing a great job, and not a run of the mill job "winging it" via Google or what not, and trust me, the cultural thingies and "figures of speech I use specific to English" - you cannot just Google them and translate. He seems to k now this too.
But the rest?
It's obvious to me...
And three hours later (it was 3 AM then - and midnight when I received his first email) ... he canceled the job.
Ok, fair enough. Seems he got ticked off or whatever, or maybe he wanted a book he could work on on his own time without having to ask for feedback, but still, canceling because of that?
I dont know, I've sent him an email ...
Sorry to see you canceled the translation! I'm happy with you "bothering" me - but if the book is something you feel you cannot translate, thats OK as well.
Odessey - basically means a "long and adventurous journey": "And feeling" "That's" I write in the flow, so typos occur, but those are fine - my readers don't particularly mind them. This particular book was written "even more in the flow", hehe, as you can probably tell. Switched back to AM - if you could paste the whole line, I'll be happy to explain it! Dont worry about "bothering me" - I use complicated words sometimes and many figures of speech unique to English, so many people ask me what things mean while translating - I enjoy that, because it shows the person is interested!
Let me know if you can / want to continue working on the book, if not, all good.
We'll see what Nelson says...
But focusing too much on taipos is a sure sign of either being overly fastidous or a Bozo, flat out.
Which he might be the former, I dont know ...
Anyway, on that front, I got an email this morning which was so suited for Bozo Glyn in Brum.
When you are 33 years old and not earning a single penny and you keep on trying to earn but not getting success, what should you do?
I take this back - the FIRST part of this is so suited to Glyn.
This was a post about people giving up etc "because they did it for months and saw no resutls" or what not, and persistence ...
But for Glyn, he never TRIES in the first place.
True, he tries to scam and does it - then gets found out, and booted back to curb. lol.
True, he's the best damn troll out there - bar none. I'm yet to see one better!
Other than scammer, troller, racist jerk and utter fool (and everything else ya'll know), I'm yet to see anything GOOD being said by anyone about Glyn - let alone productive.
He recently sent me a note about "I scammed the nation" i.e. glyn.
Anyway ... thats the Bozo update for the day, but there was another Bozo who sent me this on Twitter.
Bandar ki shakal, ghade ki aqal aur naam hai Mock-er-jee Chup kar be bhsdk
My Hindi BE weak, but basically he called me a monkey face and "donkey brain" or something like that.
I've been recommending Glyn to him. Hehe.
Anyway this was my OP -
HEre we go again. LOL. Seems Bozo is drunk... Ah wait, hastags... #drunkmuzziebozos lol Did the Prophet show up as yet? LOL
You might wonder what the discussion was about?
Well, he was claiming I hashtagged my posts to increase visiblity and that "no-one cares".
Apparently he does for one. Heh.
And the INITIAL discussion was me responding to the dastardly attack in NZ.
A terrible, terrible thing to happen and sad that these bloody extremists are targeting what used to be one of the safest places on earth, truly an oasis (still is in many regards).
That was what I said on Twitter, and apparently this Bozo responded complaining about racism.
But Bozos, of course love to play the race card.
Absolutely! Every single nation in history should have fought against their White, 3rd world colonizers who came and stole everything from minerals to their culture and their land. Find a mirror and take a good hard look.
Weird, these idiots.
I mean, let bygones be bygones - move the fuck on - we aint exactly in the Jim Crow era no more!
I should have known, some Bozo would come and classify a terror attack as fighting against racism or some BS. Really, get a grip dude. Playing the race card ... such an old and STUPID technique. Not to mention, it hasn't been applicable for ages!
He then sent me this gem -
Race hasn’t been applicable in ages? Wow! You’re so far from reality it’s shocking. Since you can use Twitter, I’m sure you can google, but then again, that would need a few grey cells which you clearly are missing.
I then made the comment about Prophet.
As expected, that got his goat.
And as these trolls do, he reverted back to his "own language" as he was clearly unable to respond cleverly in English - not just that, but he reverted to "type" i.e. vile abuse because he knew what I was saying was right. Hehe.
Typical Tom Tom, just like Schofield, wonder if the two would get along. HEhe.
Always fun to bring 'em out of the woodwork, or the rocks they crawled out of (popped out of as this nut tells me).
And that, my friend, is the update for now.
PS - A couple of my other "consternation inducing tweets" ...
Tony Greig was indeed a class act - and classic - two in one. hehe. Yes, those Sharjah matches, now that you bring it up. CLASSIC!!
Unfortunate, but true - there are cities (or towns??) in the UK that pretty much follow Sharia law! Must stop immediately, this pandering to terror and extremism of any nature!
And, a sensible one ...
Amazing how many oppressed people's gained education, improvements in health and sanitation, which leads to better quality of life.
And my response to it ...
Which I basically responded by giving him the example of the Brits in India, true, they did terrible things and NO-ONE is supporting or advocating colonialism, but they did give the country the railways which are being used till this date...
Anyway, now that y'all know, yet again, my position on all this, I'm out.
Enjoy thy Sunday...
