    I requested a new position in my project be created, a young researcher, someone I could work with for a couple of years to bring up to speed before I retire, a succession plan. We can't be ageist so I wasn't permitted to request a junior person. Nor am I allowed to know the age of applicants. But through some detective work I was able to ascertain the age of the person they have chosen to replace me. He was on the electoral rolls in 1968 ... when you had to be 21 to vote.
    So he's still younger than you?

        If he elbows me in the thigh and/or face again I am going to fucking uppercut him across the room.
        there's always one tough guy, usually a new one.. time to practice teeps and jabs, or just refuse to spar?? sparring is not a fight but perhaps you can learn to relax and slow down an aggressive opponent..

        • Pretend to clinch.......then drop vertical elbows into his collar bones. He'll get the idea pretty quick

              An ideas man, I like it.

              Best part is he is a fair bit shorter, so should get maximum velocity into the dropping of said elbows.

              • Who the fuck calls, gives a TLA as a name and then states they need my date of birth to continue. When I ask what their Three Letter Acronym stands for (so I know their business name) I'm told I need to confirm my birthday before they'll tell me. I ask again politely, and it's still a no, and they end the call.

                      • Finally get off my arse and go to the bike shop to order another visor, take the helmet with me, he says we haven't got the visor in stock, I say, thats ok, you ordered me one in last time. He gets on phone, looks at me and says $65.00, I mention that it was $35 about two years a go and leave.

                        Ebay, about $32.00 delivered.

                          Even better.

                          If he's smart, as you fake in he'll raise and tighten his guard to block any potential elbow strikes.

                          Then drop those fuckers in with all your bodyweight.

                          Collarbones are wonderful things. Great for hooking your thumbs under too and picking people up by. Wait for the tears and squeals

                          • sounds like i've been doing it wrong for a long time, i usually just land a punch in the middle of the bicep and watch as they flail wildly trying to get their arms to work to hit back...

                            all this time i could have been inflicting real pain
                            Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                            when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                              We've been working bicep counter strikes for the last couple of weeks.

                              • So I'm riding to work along South Tce and hear some tire noise on my left, I have a look and a car has driven up inside of me using the cycle lane, I look, wave ... no response. I see the red P plate and think WTF and back off, she proceeds to drive up the road about a metre and a half behind the car in front of her.

                                Then I arrive at work at the same time as someone riding the appended abortion/shitbox/motorcycle and the rider walks off as if I don't exist; totally ignoring my "Gidday". Have I died and am living in an M. Night Shyamalan movie?
