I reckon he was a good judoka/sambo guy.Chris Dolman was 4 times world Sambo champion, Geoff Capes can't wrestle but he was the world's strongest man. Actually, I trained with those guys and a few weeks before the contest all the steps were worked out before the big match. But it is not good sambo, I admit. But hey it's the ringThis is sambo But this guy is a legend.

Homosexuality <> PaedophiliaCan I take it then that you are with the St Peterbsburg assembly in opposing the promotion of pedophilia to children ?the objectors seem to want children taught that every so-called lifestyle alternative (for example, heterosexuality or homosexuality or pedophilia) is morally equivalent

This law of "gay propaganda" is idiotic, most likely it won't stay. In fact, Russia somewhat made progress in terms of tolerance to gays. In the Soviet union people went to jail for being gay. Today, there are tons of open and semi open gay celebrities among pop music, fashion, TV personalities. Percent wise, it feels like a larger proportion than in US. There is a ton of gay hostility, but that kind of thing just dies hard -- just like hostility to minorities.Which brings me to my point. Defense of gay rights somewhat puzzles me sometimes. It seems that journalists in the west and the public that simply eats and regurgitates what media serves don't see any other problems with the rights of non gays. In fact, somehow all freedoms that people talk and care about in the west are sexual freedoms. In Russia, a man closed up all sources of independent, non government media, changed constitution to appoint governors instead of electing them, drove out of the country or put in jail all influential people with money and political ambitions. He is setting himself up to become a president for another 12 years after being a president for eight and shadow president for four, he created a one party system that controls "parliament" and put KGB in charge of controlling all profitable economic activity. It is pretty unbelievable that all that media and public in the west have to say about it is that gays are inconvenienced in terms of talking openly about pounding each other in the ass.
