To celebrate, some kung fu.
This is footage from Taiwan, sometime in the 60's, of kung fu masters who had fled mainland China. This is one of the most amazing videos I have seen in a long time.
You know these guys are bad: they don't even have to take off their ties to do Praying Mantis style. I think this video would work very well as an ad for the Mike Gravel campaign as we go into this final week before the Iowa caucuses. That would definitely stir sh*t up.
Anyhow, this settles it: my first New Year's resolution for 2008 is to learn kung fu.
