Another quick night of work for the Frenchman Francis Ngannou. Gets taken down but immediately rolls through and stands up with Hamilton glued to his back. Ngannou proceeds to grab a double wrist lock and torques until their down on the ground and Hamilton is tapping.

The Night Shift

Muse A has a tendency to be a little paranoid. They live alone, and they always have all the doors and windows locked, double-checking them at night before they go to bed. Until lately, Muse A has been able to sleep decently well, but a string of robberies in their town has them spooked. 

Muse B, a friend of Muse A’s, works a very late shift in town, and while they see the robberies on the news, they’re not too worried. They have the standard alarms that make them feel safe enough, and they carry on with their life.

When one of the robberies turns into a homicide, Muse A finds themselves laying awake at night, completely unable to sleep, every noise or shadow making them jump up and grab the kitchen knife they have sitting beside their bed.

Unable to cope, Muse A calls upon Muse B, and asks that they come back to their house after work, just so they can feel safer. They would have complete access to Muse A’s food, television, and internet if they would stay up until Muse A could fall asleep. Muse B, not wanting to go home to an empty, dark house themselves, agrees.

When Muse A is still unable to sleep, they venture out to the living room, where Muse B is sitting on the couch, watching a DVD. They stay up and talk for a while, eating snacks, and Muse A confides in Muse B about their fears. Muse A finally tries to go back to sleep, but stays curled up on the couch, feeling safer with Muse B’s immediate presence. 

As the nights go on, and a routine is established, Muse A and Muse B begin talking more, laughing, enjoying each other’s company, but Muse A never seems any less afraid. One particularly sleepless night, before a very important day for Muse A, Muse B suggests letting Muse A lay their head in Muse B’s lap, in case it would be more comforting.

Muse A finds comfort in Muse B’s touch, and in time finds themselves holding Muse B’s hand, cuddling up close to them and watching tv, always falling asleep with them. When Muse A is fast asleep, Muse B moves them to their bedroom, and returns home to sleep themselves, though they are always tempted to crawl in bed with Muse A and fall asleep with them.

Is Muse B just doing this for a friend? Or is there something more?

OCD

Fun fact: OCD is not just limited to washing your hands obsessively, or checking the door multiple times, it often involves things you can’t see because it can be characterized by obsessive thoughts. Once stuck on a certain thought it becomes extremely difficult to let go of that thought until you find a way to fix it or make it right. It’s like a constant itch you can’t scratch.

Break the stigma, you do not have OCD just because you double checked that you locked your car.

  • Me: leaves bathroom door unlocked
  • Also me: gets murdered
  • Derek Morgan: the door's unlocked. Seems like she was comfortable being in the house alone.
  • Aaron Hotchner: or she was raised in a household that didn't lock doors.
  • David Rossi: or that the house didn't have locks! Reid, when were locks invented?
  • Spencer Reid: Well, the first locks were invented over six thousand years ago, but they didn't become popular in homes until 1778, when Robert Barronin started a wave of lock innovations with his double - acting tumbler lock
  • Penelope Garcia: Got it. I'll check for pre 1778 houses in the area and get back to you, my lovelies.

This sleek electric bike features smart lights and a built-in lock
A team of designers in Seattle are building a bike that could be your new best option for navigating busy city streets. Called the Denny, the bike concept includes a number of clever features that make it a bit more useful than your average two-wheeler. Not only does it have a removable electric motor to give you a bit of a boost, as well as automatic gear shifting, but its detachable handlebar doubles as a lock, so you never have to worry about bringing one along.

Forsyth lock pistol

Manufactured by Forsyth & Co. In London, United Kingdom c.1807~1810′s - serial numbers are overrated anyway.
.49 caliber twin smoothbore barrels, scent-bottle percussion lock, swivel ramrod and gold inlays.

A very rare type of lock, Forsyth’s design worked a bit like a rotating pez dispenser filled with mercury fulminate priming pellets.

Things that are not OCD

-double checking you locked the door
-arranging books in an aesthetically/logically/whatever pleasing fashion
-being annoyed by mess
-cleanliness
-washing your hands OH MY GOD

Things that may be an indication of OCD symptoms:

-a reoccurring, generally distressing thought pattern (obsession) that results in some form of action to relieve that distress (compulsion)

Stop calling yourself OCD because you line your pencils up neat or something!?!!???

Don’t
Do it.

anonymous asked:

You mentioned that joint locks are harder on double jointed people. I'm curious if being double jointed in the shoulders (as well as able to bend my elbows and knees slightly backwards) would allow me to escape some holds better?

In general, but it depends on the person performing the lock, the person in the hold, and how much they know about each other. It also depends on the locks themselves, different techniques do different things and rely on different angles to create pressure. Joint locks are, in large part, about creating leverage and putting the joint on an angle where it becomes painful for it to move. So, it follows that it’s more difficult to put someone with greater flexibility in their joints in a lock because you have to bend it further than you’re used to.

You create leverage, apply pressure, and that causes pain because the joint bends in a way it’s not meant to. And, yes, if you’re not in pain then it’s easier to escape. More so if you’re opponent doesn’t know and isn’t used to working with a training partner who is double jointed, since they’ll initiate the technique to the point they’re used to then stop. This can give the person who is double jointed (or any person who is not fully in the lock) a means to escape, since they aren’t actually trapped.

In short, yes.
