When Sporting Events Turn Uncontrollable

Have you watched a very intense game of wrestling that you feel like both competing players are somehow trying to kill each other? Yes! There are usually certain instances wherein the intensity of the game has gotten into the players very well. One very good example of an intense fight that a player has lost control of what he is doing is the boxing competition between Muhammed Ali and Frazier wherein Ali was so into the game, that at one point he bit Ali’s ear. It is dubbed as the greatest boxing in history because of how engrossed they were in the game, and Muhammad Ali is a testament to it.   There are really a lot of games were players got so engrossed playing, that somehow all that they want to do is to win the game no matter what it takes. Some players become too obsessed about winning that they forget about certain rules, to the point of crossing the borders of the game’s rules. Such instances wherein players get hold of their attention to the games are common in sports like basketball, football and other physically intense sports. Moreover, physically competitive sports like boxing, wrestling and MMA are just some wherein there is a great chance that players will disobey the rules being set for them just to win the game. Such game poses a high probability of seeing players fight like they are gladiators trying to kill one another! And what happened to Muhammad Ali is just one very fine example of it.   But, have you seen a wrestling or an MMA championship wherein one player is trying to strangle the other player? Consider yourself viewing a game of MMA and one player is just too engrossed about winning and it is very evident on his face that he is somehow turning red with rage and he is channeling all energy that he has so he can win the game; and in doing so, he lost control of himself and got caught in a situation where he is at a point of trying to strangle his opponents. Yes! You read it right, he is strangling his opponent. What would you feel? What would the referee or game maker feel?   The referee would likewise feel a sense of fear at the same time a sense of being in control to try to stop the game so that it will not result to untoward incidents. Indeed, it is really scary to witness such things, but nevertheless such events do occur because of the nature of the sport. Have you ever thought of what the aggrieved...

Reasons To Not Get Tattooed

Getting a tattoo may have been what you and your friends were raving about back when you were teenagers. It may have looked cool and good when you first had it, but what do you think would it look like 30 or perhaps 50 years from now? Well, if you haven’t decided on getting a tattoo yet and you were thinking about getting one, then here are some reasons that would probably change your mind:   • Did you know that getting tattoos in some places would require you to be in a legal age before they would even give you the tattoo? Yeah, so before you think about it you have to consult your country’s or state’s laws about getting a tattoo by yourself. Your choices though would be to ask consent from your parents or have it done yourself, either way you’d get into big trouble and a bad tattoo – unless your parents are cool or you’re really a great tattoo artist.   • Did you know that really great tattoo artists that give you quality tattoos cost a lot of money? Getting your skin tattooed with a really rad designs and a long lasting tattoo quality will leave you broke, so if you don’t have enough money for it then you either save up or go for the cheap. But then, saving up would mean waiting a long time upon which you would go for the cheap, but then cheaper tattoos usually end up really bad. Either way it’s not gonna look good.   • The worst tattoos usually come from bets with people you know – especially your so-called “friends”. So before agreeing to a bet that involves tattoos, think about it first. What’s the worst that could happen, you ask? Well, only a tattoo of male genitalia on your face could be the worst thing that could happen.   • Don’t get a tattoo out of love. Well, at least don’t get the name of the person that you are currently in love with. Chances are, you’d break up and you’re left with a broken heart and skin permanently inked with the name of the person you though you are going to spend the rest of your life with. That might just be the reason why you can’t find “the one” in the future.   So unless you are pretty darn sure that getting a tattoo for yourself will not end up with either of the ones mentioned above, then go for...

What Society Stereotypes As Comically Ugly

Stereotypes are pretty negative for most people, but then why not take it lightly and look at the comical side of it? Some people are not making themselves look like the way they are currently looking for a beauty contest, but rather for making people laugh. Some people may think it ugly and make fun of them, what’s important is that they are happy with how they look and how comical they may be to other people. Below are some of the best ones: Too much piercings – while other people find two piercings, one in each ear, enough and the normal thing to do, there are others who beg to differ. Adding extra piercings for the ears, for their tongue, another one for their belly button or their eyebrow is rather extreme for others. But did you know that other people actually fill their whole face with piercings just for the heck of it? Yeah well they might end up looking like human porcupines or human sea urchins, but hey that is what they want. Too much tattoos – other people think tattoos are ugly, and those people couldn’t even begin to imagine if they meet someone whose skin is filled with tattoos at every square inch that they end up looking like inhuman. People actually do that? Well yeah, just because they love it. Others are just amazed looking at it too; it’s like looking at a body painted person, but only more permanent. Too much make-up – well, make-up has been quite in the line of beauty for most people, but did you know that others actually use make-ups to make themselves look funny and comical? After all, clowns are made out of a huge part of make-up and that is kind of like their trademark. Too much teeth – well, people can actually choose to have their teeth fixed but then others prefer to leave it like they are because they make it part of their charm. There are just some people who make the crowd laugh just by doing something with their teeth, like “accidentally” having dentures fall out while in the middle of a serious conversation. Now that’s a laugh. So who says that being ugly is always a bad thing? Well, in the first place was there such a thing as being ugly anyways? After all, it was society who had made ugly happen and stereotyped it so it could have labels. Comically ugly though, will that be a...
