    OUGH; Go back to old school and sound it out. You will come up with only one way.

    Ripley often doesn’t hold true and many times don’t follow through enough to satisfy what they say. This is the case and thanks for your six examples, but heck if I’m going to try for the other four …

    There’s a scene in I Love Lucy where Lucy says she, not Ricky, should teach their son to read. To demonstrate why, she asks him to read aloud a children’s story about a wood cutter.

    I’m no martial arts master, but I took it when I was a teenager. And I remember my instructor emphasizing one thing: when someone attacks, the very act of attacking opens up a vulnerability which you can exploit. I never see anyone in the movies employing this technique.

    In traditional Karate, there were only 2 belt colors… white, and black. White signified the beginning of life. Black was awarded after the student had basically learned all of what there was, and therefore, was at the end. Colors were introduced later, as a lot of students (especially younger) were quitting, feeling there was nothing accomplished. A student could study/practice for 10 years, and even longer, and still be a white belt. Apparently, the knowledge, itself, was insufficient to keep them interested.
