    At least you gave a scientific name for that Box Jelly Fish I presume it is different than the ones that periodically invade Hawaiian waters. Here we use Adolph's Meat Tenderizer as First Aid for that problem. Which happens to be the only use for that product as far as I'm concerned.

About doc
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
pretty damn old
Physician, jack of most martial arts, master of none
I am a physician by trade, who specialized in Intensive Care Medicine and Anesthesiology, both in the consultant and management areas. My career ended suddenly in a suspicious automobile accident. Ironically, it was this cataclysm that started me on my continued journeys to Shaolin, and, the gradual growth and evolution of this web site. was started in 1997, and since then, has been responsible for my involvement with millions of viewers, thousands of community members, a hundred or so member visits to Shaolin in China, more than a few television documentaries, and one National Geographic featured article.
Martial arts experience:
Shaolin gong fu, Sanda, Qi Gong, Kenpo, Judo, Seidokan, Muay Thai, American Boxing, some Wing Chun and Jiujitsu, guns and other fun destructive devices.
Years training:
twenty seven plus
Favorite hobbies and sports:
Scuba, snowmobiling, skiing, racquetball, computer stuff, church, teaching martial arts, teaching church. And too many other things in Thailand that I probably won't mention.
Music Preferences:
Anything but country, jazz and overly loud rap.
Other interests:
Getting into trouble. A regular occurrence with me.
What do you love and hate the most?:
I hate dishonest and dishonorable people. Like, some of the 'monk" pretends I've dealt with. Oh, and I also hate Tom Cruise.
Favorite personal quote of yours?:
Remember Rule Number One...
Favorite Quote:
"Remember rule number one", said by me. What rule number one is, is none of your business.
Favorite Films:
Doctor Zhivago, The Winter War, Stalingrad (all versions), Citizen Kane (I'm showing my age).

Oh, and I like Battlestar Galactica. The new one.
Favorite games:
Tribes 2 and the War2003 mod. Half Life 1 and 2, FEAR, and X3 Terran Conflict, which I spend an inordinate amount of time playing. ARMA 3, and Dishonored. My wife hates all of it.

Oh, and can't forget about Doom and all of its iterations.
Favorite books:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boule, I Am Legend by Richard Matheson, What Dreams May Come by Richard Matheson, anything by Antony Beevor (history stuff).

And a few others I can't remember.
My favorite website URL:, of course. I spend enough damn time on it...
About me:
I'm big and scary. I'm not sexy. I shave my head, which makes me anathema to Mormons. I eat chocolate cake for breakfast, occasionally with pretzels. i have a large hairy German Shepherd named Mickey, who is probably bigger than you. I like traveling Asia and Thailand. I love computer games, and I like working on this website. Basically, I like doing things that don't make me money and cause me a lot of headaches.
MySpace URL:
Are you kidding?

Some special things other russbo members have said:
The tarnished imagine I was referring to was the monks in the U.S., we already know what your image is " knight in tarnished armour with the heart of a lion". RJW

Funnily enough, I was just reminiscing about Shi de Cheng and my time in Dengfeng. Really I was thinking about the moments and people in life who shape your path. Then, I realized it wasn't de Cheng who shaped my future. It was you. After al, it was you who encouraged me to take the plunge and study with him. And you didn't even know me. How many other people could probably say the same thing about you. Probably quite a few...So, well, thanks. JW

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. I've become a Reiki master along the way and would be happy to send you some distant healing to help you sleep, if you're open to it... JW

You're just a jaded cynical mother****er.... Jeffpeg

Russbo sounds like someone who just rampages through China, leaving destruction and stunned natives in his wake. Sa Mantis

He's a mix between Confucious and Archie Bunker; you've got to experience him to know him. Scott J.

As for your karma. You have helped a lot of people over the years, Rich, and you have done a lot of good, and had fun along the way. Im sorry you had to shut down your school your dream. I certainly understand wanting to chuck the whole thing, the websites a lotta work and grief, but Shaolin has been such a huge part of your life even if you decide not to share it with others on a mass scale again, you're still friends with monks like your Master. Just stick to what drew you to it in the first place and try and stay out of the rest of the bullshit . Anonymous

What an extraordinarily gigantisized benificent bald headed bad ass creature you are. Bloomin Lotus

I know it has been a dream of yours to open that school and I cant understand why it has to end like this. I have always looked up to you for your courage to go on even when the situation was really shitty and also for the fact that you always have seen things in their true colours. Not to forget about your humour, your sarcasm and your cynicism. And now its about time that you give that asshole a good dressing down, dont let him destroy your dream. Show him what the other side of the coin is like! Its a part of his growing up, I guess! Anonymous

That hapened to me too when my parents found out my mother's brother who'd been living with us for yrs had been raping me several times a day most days since I was 11... Thats the Uncle YoU remind me of!.. (Blooming Lotus)


Experienced Community organizer. Yeah, let's choose him to run the free world. It will be historic. What could possibly go wrong...

Delayed return to Thailand

by doc on 11-18-2008 at 04:21 AM
HI all

Looks like our return to Thailand is going to be delayed. Again. We’ve run into unexpected issues. Again. And, again…

The house is coming along nicely, but there have been some complications. The walls and ceilings have finally been refurbished, textured and painted, but we’re having difficulty with the cabinet section. We’re not having trouble picking out what we like. We’re having trouble finding contractors that stay in business long enough to finish.
