    I was flicking through Jigoro Kano's book when I noticed an unusual requirement for joining...

    "... To apply for membership, it is only necessary to fill out an application form and resent it..."

    Man, I hated that form so much, and they still didn't contact me about my membership :mad:

    Man, I can understand scorn, but resentment? The Japanese have a very interesting culture.
