Kalarippayat (Kalari)

Kalarippayattu is the martial art form of Kerala, in South India; it is characterised by low crouching postures, based on animals – elephant, horse, wild boar, high kicks and explosive twisting jumps. The name has two components – kalari - meaning the space of practice, built to prescribed dimensions, and - payatu- meaning fighting technique; now it is often referred to simply as 'kalari'.

Wow. That sounds pretty cool.

The highest stage of kalari is achieved when 'the body becomes all eyes'. A technique that emphasizes and leads to such a state of heightened awareness

So let me see I got this right. A Kalari expert becomes all eyes and has heightened awareness of the surroundings.

Didn't seem to work so well for Gitanjali Kolanad, master instructor of Kalari, whose heightened awareness somehow didn't manage to pick up on the six hundred pound lion that was about to kick her ass.

Awareness. Off the chain yo.

M-x spook

So after I made my wiretapping post yesterday, I had the strangest feeling of deja-vu. It took me while to figure it out, but I finally did.

It turns out that way back in 1987, there was an extension written for the emacs editor called "spook", that would insert suspicious keywords into whatever you were editing. The idea was that if everyone did this, the NSA computers that were believed to be monitoring traffic on the internet would become overloaded. I remember using this back in the early 90s, when emacs was my email client.

21 years later, and the only thing that has changed is that what was previously only believed, we now know as fact.

For old time's sake, here's some spook output.

On Telecom Wiretapping

Here's a joke you can email or text around to your friends. I actually made this one up, so be sure to give me credit for it.

Allah is Great,
    Violets are Blue,
I'm on the CIA watchlist,
    And now so are you.
