Q: RIP --> ''I'm so mean, I make medicine sick''

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2016/jun/04/muhammad-ali-greatest-quot...

 

 

Muhammad Ali's best quotes: 'Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee'

 

 

I ain’t got no quarrel with them Vietcong”

 

 

Henry Cooper and Muhammad Ali

At a time when the people of the globe are increasingly divided by every race, color, gender, elitism, and religion; the death of a Muslim-named, anti-war, black man who claimed to be the "the greatest" appears to have brought the world together... however briefly.

In his memoir, Mohammed Ali - who died last night aged 74 - discussed how he'd like to be remembered...

  

"I would like to be remembered as a man who won the heavyweight title three times, who was humorous, and who treated everyone right.

 

As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him, and who helped as many people as he could. As a man who stood up for his beliefs no matter what. As a man who tried to unite all humankind through faith and love.

 

And if all that's too much, then I guess I'd settle for being remembered only as a great boxer who became a leader and a champion of his people. And I wouldn't even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was."

You'll hear plenty of reasons why Muhammad Ali is a legend in the days following his death --€” from his biggest victories to his inspirational words--€” but few stars who share that label can claim something like this.

 

 

Ali once talked a suicidal man down from a ninth-floor ledge, saving his life. According to a CBS News report of the incident, which occurred in Los Angeles in 1981, Ali rushed from his home a mile away and volunteered to talk to the young African American man who was threatening to jump.

pretty cool to be considered as one of the Coolest Cats ever !

 

I admire boxers for their athleticism,,,, but those heavyweights are crazy,,,  duh, I'm no expert, but it seems to me to catch a full-on punch from Ali, Frazier, Foreman, would kill a man.  So again, what I'm trying to say is they are Brave, yeah, but crazy to get in that ring too.  

I really admired that man and I'm not ashamed to say that his passing brought a tear to my eye.

 

RIP Mr. Ali

Damn shame, he was a great athlete.

This year seems to be the year a lot of the great names die.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
