World of Warcraft Races:  Forsaken

"The undead Forsaken are a faction of former Scourge who have regained their free will. Led by the Banshee Queen Sylvanas Windrunner, many Forsaken bear a bitter view of the living, as most living creatures look upon them with fear, derision, and hatred. Notable members of the Forsaken have embraced their state of undeath and move beyond it, whether for altruistic purposes, or far darker intent."

Diogenes was the shit.  He was easily one of the best philosophers ever.  He made himself the least wealthy person, hence living in a “Barrel”.  He also, upon seeing a child drinking from a river with his hands, smashed his only wooden bowl claiming to be “Bested by a child”.  He did public stunts to make a point towards customs and norms including eating in the marketplace in Athens which was generally not acceptable.  When Plato described humans as “Featherless Bipeds” he plucked a chicken and brought it to him, saying “here’s your man”.  Plato changed that description to “Featherless bipeds with arms”.  And here’s where it gets real.Diogenes the Cynic became well known all over.  In fact, Alexander the great, the one man who could have anyone killed just because, went out of his way to find him.  Upon meeting Diogenes, whom was laying on the ground, he said something to the extent of “Ah, the great Diogenes!  Is there anything that I, Alexander the Great, can do you?”.  Diogenes’ response was a crude “Yes, Get out of my sunlight.”But, however, Alexander came back another time, to find Diogenes sifting through a pile of bones.  Alex inquired “Diogenes, what are you doing sifting through that pile of bones?” Diogenes the Cynic responded “I’m trying to distinguish between the bones of your father, and that of a slave.  I cannot tell the difference.”  An insult that any man would want the other beheaded for indeed.  But no, not Alexander.  Alexander went on to later say that if he were not Alexander the Great, he would wish to be Diogenes.Dude’s a motherfuckingbadass.

Diogenes was the shit.  He was easily one of the best philosophers ever.  He made himself the least wealthy person, hence living in a “Barrel”.  He also, upon seeing a child drinking from a river with his hands, smashed his only wooden bowl claiming to be “Bested by a child”.  He did public stunts to make a point towards customs and norms including eating in the marketplace in Athens which was generally not acceptable.  When Plato described humans as “Featherless Bipeds” he plucked a chicken and brought it to him, saying “here’s your man”.  Plato changed that description to “Featherless bipeds with arms”.  

And here’s where it gets real.

Diogenes the Cynic became well known all over.  In fact, Alexander the great, the one man who could have anyone killed just because, went out of his way to find him.  Upon meeting Diogenes, whom was laying on the ground, he said something to the extent of “Ah, the great Diogenes!  Is there anything that I, Alexander the Great, can do you?”.  Diogenes’ response was a crude “Yes, Get out of my sunlight.”

But, however, Alexander came back another time, to find Diogenes sifting through a pile of bones.  Alex inquired “Diogenes, what are you doing sifting through that pile of bones?” Diogenes the Cynic responded “I’m trying to distinguish between the bones of your father, and that of a slave.  I cannot tell the difference.”  An insult that any man would want the other beheaded for indeed.  But no, not Alexander.  

Alexander went on to later say that if he were not Alexander the Great, he would wish to be Diogenes.

Dude’s a motherfuckingbadass.

A graphic everyone should take note of, that I made for kicks when considering a fight between a taller/shorter opponent, or two opponents whose height difference is 4+ inches. You will see the red is the “combat zone” — the zone where both fencers can reach to hit each other. Around that is the yellow “danger donut” (or “bagel of opportunity” for the taller fencer)—where the taller fencer can reach to hit and the shorter fencer cannot. The greatest danger for the shorter is hovering and hesitating at the yellow line and in getting across it into the red zone. (The yellow zone isn’t very big—it varies depending on the relative skill of fencers/their footwork/how much they telegraph). The greatest opportunity for the taller fencer is to strike someone at this range—both tall and short fencers would do well to develop the ability to recognize where this is for their body in space. How does the shorter fencer take away the initiative from the taller fencer to snipe or hit when the shorter fencer is in the yellow zone? Three ways. 1) Footwork — the shorter fencer must be able to get in and out of range quickly and agilely. 2) Parrying — the shorter fencer must be able to parry (perform the Taker) on the way in passing through the yellow zone. 3) Second intention (Provoker/taker/hitter) — Once in the red zone, the shorter fencer must be prepared to make a decisive second intention attack and then cover on the way back out (Abzug). Taller fencers should consider all of this and watch for when a shorter fencer is trying to manage their distance, and take full advantage of the yellow bagel of opportunity.
