Spelling Bees,UFC & Darwin

I was in the gym on the stair master and the tv was on TSN with the mute on. The show on the sports network was the Scripps Spelling Bee competition. This is now a sporting event , sort of like bridge except for the tweener set.
It seems like everything these days is now some sort of Darwinian contest in the name of reality tv.
An ad during the Bee competition was this kind of punching dummy, endorsed by some UFC thug. Naturally there were chicks punching the bag dressed in dental floss. The only thing more sexy than a chick with a gun is a chick with a good upper cut apparently.
Back to the Spelling Bee and I noticed that the young contestants would give each other the high five -but ever so gentle just making palm to palm contact -real gentle like. I also couldn’t help but notice that a priest was one of the judges for the contest. Something very disturbing about watching young boys line up in front of a priest
How do you spell P-E-D-O-P-H-I-L-E?
On the way back from the gym I noticed that the tattoo shop is selling UFC shirts apparently this is the demographic.
Despite the rise in interest in UFC I am shocked to notice the decrease in arm-to-arm combatbility in our armed serivces , police, military etc.
This was my main complaint after our RCMP killed Robert Dziekanski with a taser. This despite there being six cops on the scene. My shock at that was that none of these guys knew how to defuse one guy with basic martial arts skills?
This brings us to the sad news of the day with the Israeli raid on the Floatilla. What I can’t believe is that strategically the Israelis weren’t prepared for arm to arm combat and didn’t send in their martial art experts. The unpreparedness is shocking as are the results.
Finally -how do you spell peace?

ps Say Yes to the Arab boycott of Israeli/Jewish products. The nuclear bomb ws the product of Einstein’s mind.
