Good day! Before you ask, yes, I am a real Wumbologist. My name is Patrick Star (Dr. Star to you) and I am a professor of Wumbology at the Star School of Wumbology at Princeton University. I also do research regarding wumbo factors.
If you wish to attend my lecture series, shoot me an email at p.star@princeton.edu
Also, my fiancee is Sjorin, so keep your hands off him.

Yes, but a lot of people are self diagnosing for the wrong reasons. I've been diagnosed with a few mental things, but I know more people who say they are depressed and wear straight edge razor blades as a pendant than people who are legitimately depressed.

In Kyokushin Karate fuck yeah you are awarded. Kyokushin is all about destroying your enemy. Shotokan is the Karate style where you dont even really PUNCH you enemy. Dont even get me started on Shotokan. What a joke.
User avatar #176 - cptsweatpants (03/26/2014) [-]
I'm no karate expert, but from the little I know it's banned on most tournaments cause Karate is too dangerous when going all out.
#175 - anonymous (03/26/2014) [-]
It depends on the associate and the style. Tang Soo Do is more traditional, while Tae Kwon Do is typically more sport. Others vary.
User avatar #172 - buriedstpatrick (03/26/2014) [-]
Official SKIF (Shotokan Karate-Do International Federation) tournaments let you hit in the stomach, but not cause damage/pain. Head attacks are not allowed to actually make contact. Every time a person hits, the referee stops the fight, gives points or warnings, then resumes the match. This type of fighting is called Kumite.
I remember a head kick gives you 3 points, and I think a kick to the stomach 2 points. So I think a fist to the face (without hitting, but very close) is 1 point, and a fist to the stomach is ½ point. Last, but not least, a takedown sweep is 3 points, but only if you keep control of your opponent so they don't hurt themselves.

Kumite is not about causing damage to your opponent, it's way more strategic and a more abstract way of fighting.
User avatar #75 - aytoktonik (03/26/2014) [-]
Yes in knockdown styles like Kyokushin , shidokan ,ashihara etc and also in some shotokan and shito ryu championships .
User avatar #15 - Deeticky (03/26/2014) [-]
In the old days, yeah, but nowadays, most karate competitions discourage hitting people too hard, and many will even disqualify you for it. Every now and then though there's one that uses the old-fashioned rules and allows for KO's in black belt divisions.
User avatar #229 - epie (03/26/2014) [-]
Well, as a Kumite (Free fighting) judge and competitor myself, there is roughly 13 criteria you must follow, for example, no attacks to the joints, and no forceful attacks to the neck (for obvious reasons, because if the competitor wasn't very good with their control, but they were strong they could potentially kill someone with a neck injury).
However, yes, one of the criteria is no "overly excessive force or techniques" for example, if you had swept someone and they were on the ground and struck the body, it would be seen as very disrespectful and completely out of etiquette to then kick them and hit them repeatedly as you have already scored the point for one strike.
Firstly, they get a warning if they do this, but then they're out. Also it may be worth adding that you can hit the body, of course. But it must be the torso. If you were to do a controlled kick to the head and lightly tapped the cheek, or just made small contact without the opponent jerking their head from force, that would give you sanbon (3 points) which is the highest.
TL;DR
So yes of course you can hit them, and with force, but if it used in a disrespectful and unnecessary way, such as throwing and uncontrolled punch to the head, it is possible to get disqualified.

Though to be fair, some judges can be absolutely biased to one competitor because he knows their trainer or something and just gives them points very easily, which is incredibly bad judging if i may say so myself. But yes, it does happen most unfortunately. They usually get weeded out when the competitions get to a higher standard though.

User avatar #256 - Deeticky (03/26/2014) [-]
Yep, all the rules you stated are pretty similar to the ones at the tournaments I've been to.
User avatar #228 - pocoloco (03/26/2014) [-]
Not in Kyokushin though
#45 - salsawin (03/26/2014) [-]
Some of the disqualifications these days are ridiculous. I was in a (very small, low level tournament) where my opponent in my second match kicked me twice in the junk. On the third deliberate crotch shot, I backed up and said "Oh come on!" That "outburst" got me disqualified.
User avatar #258 - Deeticky (03/26/2014) [-]
One of my friends had the same experience, except he said "Are you kidding me?!" once he took his third shot to the balls.
User avatar #93 - deathstare (03/26/2014) [-]
If someone kicks you in the junk, just grab your balls and keel over. Make it look obvious that he kicked you.
#173 - salsawin (03/26/2014) [-]
Probably what I should have done--instead I just hunkered down and did my best to ride it through. My only consolation was that they disqualified my opponent as well.

User avatar #14 - mitdwit (03/26/2014) [-]
Nahman, this is Taekwondo. The point is to score points, not knock the other guy out.
This would leave the guy i the black gi disqualified for unsportsmanlike conduct.
#49 - Seanxone (03/26/2014) [-]
That depends highly on your style. I know WTF and ITF have a knockout = instant win policy with WTF having TKO after an 8 count. Unsportsmanlike conduct is more reserved for hitting a downed opponent or illegal strikes.
#99 - anonymous (03/26/2014) [-]
ITF does not have a knockout policy
User avatar #239 - Seanxone (03/26/2014) [-]
It doesn't? The tournaments from those guys I've seen have had the policy but I guess it doesn't carry down past collegiate tournaments?
User avatar #51 - mitdwit (03/26/2014) [-]
I was in ATA (before it went to shit) and ATF. It was more about defense and technique than offense and fighting strength.
#54 - Seanxone (03/26/2014) [-]
That makes sense, WTF and ITF are the big ones when it comes to tournaments. This one looks like it's ITF because of the gear they're wearing (mitts instead of gloves, no chest guard) WTF is what's used for Olympic sparring and the one I know more about. But from what I've seen ITF gives no fucks, knockouts are insta wins and punches to the face are allowed.
User avatar #58 - mitdwit (03/26/2014) [-]
From my teachings these are ridiculous haha. I can see this being far better in some ways, though.
#60 - Seanxone (03/26/2014) [-]
The styles are highly competitive, Never been to a tournament without seeing a medic being called to the blackbelt matches (really damn terrifying if you're watching the people you have to fight next). But somehow the sportsmanship is still very much there, and everyone is friends with the people who just tried to kick their teeth out.

I've been better. Lacking in money, a proper computer and any reaction pictures (broke my laptop )
But apart from that everything is going well. I'll be having my halfaversary with my girlfriend soon, which is exciting ^^ (I bought a Shingeki no Kyojin wallet and two Black Butler figurines :3) and I'm going to Crete on holiday with my dad in August, so that ought to be fun.
I've also produced some more music, including a vocal only song about penises and anuses (soundcloud.com/vvcjim/mongolian-penis)
How about you? Do you have a girlfriend? How's the music going? You still watch anime?
User avatar #122 to #120 - Wumbologist (07/23/2013) [-]

No, I don't have a girlfriend, mainly because I went to an all boys school, so I hardly know any girls. I start college university in September, which I am MASSIVELY looking forward to mainly for the presence of girls. The music is going swell, just today I figured out how to play "Emiya" from Fate/Stay Night. I still watch some anime, albeit not as much, as I've shifted more to manga and other things.
Another reason I'm looking forward so much to September is because I'll hear the results of a creative writing contest I entered. I think I did really well, but I won't know until September 1st. You can read my story here if you're interested...

i'm studying anthropology/history and i always appreciate when other people know how to use logic and reasoning regarding touchy subjects such as feminism, and having open minds towards it. other than comments like "back in the kitchen lelz" or "feminism is the devil!"
yeah, feminism has had many negative aspects on "normal society" (regarding traditional views of patriarchy) but it has opened up so many doors to bettering our society as a whole. our society, regarding women/gays/liberals is in that awkward teenage stage, where everything is confusing and it doesn't seem like there is going to be any improvement any time soon. but, it will get better in the future. history has already shown us that.

sorry this comment isn't put together very well, i just got home from a long day and i'm very tired. i hope you get the gist of what i'm saying.

I have decided to purchase "lost at sea"

How are you finding O'Malley's work so far?
#100 to #99 - Wumbologist (01/01/2013) [-]
Well I read every single book the day I got it, so, after having completed it, I ADORED IT. I had seen Scott Pilgrim the movie before, but the books are just on another level—absolute masterwork. Furthermore, I had actually read all of them at a friend's house before, but I just wanted to reread them/actually own them for future reference, because the reread value is absurdly high.
Lost at Sea is also quite good, but in a different, more introspective way, and while you'll still see a lot of the O'Malley-style witty dialogue, it's a more somber work.

Thank you for listening! Don't worry about it; all my videos that I've made public are public for a reason.

Wumbo, i've made a decision.

I'm gonna try and write comedy (situational)

I've got a premise but damn i still feel lost, any tips? I know you've already kinda delved into that and honestly from the résumé of what you once told me, you seem like on another level. Any crucial stuff i should follow?

I'm just a high schooler with a fledging fanfiction career, but I'd say that the most important thing is to make it seem natural. While this necessitates a certain amount of social grace itself, it's important that as you write it, you ask yourself a) would anyone ever say this and b) would THIS CHARACTER ever say it.

So, certain types of people are frequently used in comedy, and there are some tried-and-true character archetypes. For example, you usually will have a...
Cloudcuckoolander
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Cloudcuckoolander
Genki Girl (or guy, but usually girl)
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GenkiGirl
Magnificent Bastard
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MagnificentBastard
Straight Man
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/StraightMan
Deadpan Snarker
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeadpanSnarker
and so forth.

Rather than writing situations, spend a good chunk of time writing characters, down to their hobbies, likes, dislikes, and backstories, and just sit back and let your intriguing characters live their lives, which, if you did it right, should be hilarious. So, when you create these sort of characters, you're not creating situations that will produce more jokes, the characters are. For example, let's say that your token foreigner has invited you for traditional Eastern European food, or that your Magnificent Bastard has for some reason and with no explanation signed your gang up for a curling tournament, with no explanation. These sort of situations would arise naturally from the absurd characters you create. So, now that you've been invited to token foreigner's house, what's the first thing the cloudcuckoolander notices or says--perhaps that it smells like wheat grass. But wait, inquires the straight man, what is that and how do you know what it smells like--cue the Magnificent Bastard, who comments that they most likely overdid the roast, and the musclehead could then produce a hilarious misunderstanding that greatly offends the foreigner's parents. This is a terrible example, but I'm trying to illustrate the point that the jokes should just WRITE THEMSELVES if you create interesting characters in an interesting setting.

I hope this helps, and let me know how it goes.

Yeah, let's do it tonight. I guess I went to bed early last night.

I'm with the anime club until late tonight, so I might miss it, but I have no problem with it tonight.....

i'm not quite sure for myself as well,.,.,
maybe from old sol thread?
User avatar #74 to #73 - Wumbologist (11/22/2012) [-]
Well, I was more active on SOL II, and only ever made one comment on the first one. Ironically, it was one of the first comments, then I left and rejoined it.
What I think is more likely is that we discussed something on some anime-related content or something of that nature.

Besides extremely nitpicky stuff (I'm actually a super smart American, as it turns out), that checks out.

So, Wumbo, I was thinking of doing a Macademi Wasshoi jokesub and was wondering if you have seen the actual series yet.
User avatar #61 to #60 - Wumbologist (11/02/2012) [-]
Sorry, but I can't say I have.
#62 to #61 - Zhuan (11/02/2012) [-]
Well I was going to cast you as Professor Sagami, the blonde in the bottom right. Since I picture you as kind of an unofficial keeper of the peace in SoL thread and he keeps track of Discipline in the Academy, he's also a Robot who's head pops off and is a humorous joke.
