From watching Men In Black, I learnt about the Orions Belt constellation and can still recognise it in the nights sky. What movies have imparted knowledge thats stuck with you?

So I saw the film when I was very young, maybe five or six. Having learned about Orions Belt from it, this sparked an interest in astrology which I've continued to pursue as a hobby throughout my adult life. I had every colouring book possible when I was little!

Id be interested to know of any films that may have imparted similar knowledge on you that has stuck with you and perhaps began an interest in a certain subject or hobby .

What is and is not a "black belt"

Several years ago I worked for the Best mediocre company to Buy electronics from.

I am a simple man, and I care very little for how I dress. The only thing I ask is that I am allowed at least a tiny bit of personal expression.

Background: I worked in the mobile/cellular department for 3 years. I had already had a couple years experience at a certain Shack full of Radios, and was the local Cellular guru. I had trained everybody in my department, and was the regular go-to man for a certain Squad of Geeks when it came to anything that touched a cellular network.

Managers came and went, assistant managers came and went. Until Emily. Emily was about my age (young), and came in with a mindset that she was a go-getter and knew all about everything cellular.

On several occasions coworkers came to me instead of her for questions, I had to fix a few of her mistakes, and she'd argue with me on processes (that I tweaked because they didn't work otherwise).

It was at this point that she, a die-hard rules girl had decided that she hated me- so, she began nitpicking my wardrobe.

First, it was my boots- I like work boots, they have ankle support and she had taken away our ability to sit during the day. So, I needed comfy shoes.

They were not dress code, as they were not black. Okay, well, that's fine, I switched to black shoes- (occasionally 'forgetting' whenever she had a day off).

Then, she committed a grievous sin, she attacked my belt.

Belts were required by dress code, and they were required to be black belts. My belt was a black belt with Deadpool logos all around it because I'm a diehard Marvel fan.

>Emily: I'm giving you a warning about that belt, dress code says you need to wear a black belt to work.

>Me: It IS a black belt, it's just got a logo around it.

>Emily: Well, it needs to be ALL black.

>Me: Nowhere in the dress code does it say that, it technically says it's up to the GM's decision. Besides, what about (Coworkers 1-5) who all wear patterned belts?

>Emily: This is my decision and I say you need a black belt.

So, of course, I go ask every other manager in the store- not a single one of them cares, especially because we live in an extremely liberal city where personal expression tends to be taken to extremes.

I finally ask the GM, he's shocked that he has to answer such an asinine and pointless question and indicates that he doesn't care.

I helpfully mention this to Emily, to wh

The one move guaranteed to tap high level black belts…gratitude

Since 2020 has been all about the pandemic and clickbait I’ll see if I can bring them together in this thread. This has undoubtedly been a crap year in many ways. If you haven’t lost your job, you probably had a pay cut or dealt with other significant issues. Lots has changed about the world, including the world of bjj. One of the schools I use to train at is closed for good, and the one I go to now has an uncertain future as case counts rise. BJJ is a hobby for me and I feel for the high-level athletes and people who make a living from it. So I wanted to share some thanks.

I have trained with the same 2 people in a pod since March and I am grateful for them as we have been able to improve our games without any of us getting sick yet (fingers crossed). There are folks I use to roll with every week that I haven’t seen in 9 months as we are on different pod schedules. The gym isn’t the same community it has been, and you all have helped be some of that community for me. I have learned from you all and laughed at/with many of you. The content here and bjj instructionals have played a larger role for me this year, than ever in the past to maintain a connection.

I have worked outside of the US on a number of occasions and understand that to others thanksgiving is an odd holiday…because it is. But I have a young daughter and every year I have her write down 5 things she is thankful for. Given the day, I thought I would bring some of that gratitude here and thank some of our internet friends and I hope others will pay it forward by adding thanks as well. Or add good feedback, or funny content, or whatever helped make this year a bit more normal. I’ll keep it to 5 so can’t get to everyone, but thank you all for taking the time to read this and add any other notes of gratitude.

  1. u/StephanKesting , u/bernardofaria_bjj , and the many others who were quick to give away content at the beginning of the pandemic. It was great leadership and made my (and I am sure many others) days of the hard lockdown a bit easier.

  2. u/LachlanGiles my training pod has spent time working on your half, half passing, and body lock, and your new guard retention instructionals are fantastic works. You live on a different continent but have probably made more of an impact on broad changes to my bjj this year than anyone else. Power of internet friends.

Need a new black belt

I know there have been a million threads about belts, but I need to replace my black belt for competition. I’m looking for something a little nicer that my gameness belt. I kind of like the pear weave ones. I’m looking at Kanji katana, jiujitiero, kingz Peale weave, Fuji pear weave, and of coarse kataaro and eosin. Any feedback or on any of these? Thanks
