    There's only a few things that can't be solved with a karate chop to the throat.

    Ahh the old "blow to the windpipe" trick...

    Just as good as the "dislocate the knee" kick
    or the "chicken-wing" <Reverse WristLock> followed up with a blow to the
    back of the elbow.

    Very few people show much motivation after that...

    Yay Grandpop !

    Just goes to show that many older people refuse to go gently into that good night. Chalk one up for the good guys.

    ETA: I couldn't for the life of me remember the origins of that line, so I had a quick consultation with the Great Google, and read what Wikipedia had to say:

    "Thomas watched his father, formerly in the Army, grow weak and frail with old age. The poet relates this experience in this poem. The speaker tries to convince his father to fight against imminent death. The speaker addresses his father using wise men, good men, wild men, or grave men as examples to illustrate the same message: that no matter how they have lived their lives or what they feel at the end they should die fighting. It is one of Thomas' most popular, most easily accessible poems, and implies that one should not die without fighting for one's life, or after life."

    That pretty much says it all.

    I hope I'll be in the right condition at 79 to be able to do that...congrats to that older home owner.
