Do you do any MMA training and or follow it?
I did a little kickboxing at one point, but I don't really do any MMA, just boxing. I train with people who do Krav Maga and BJJ, though, but I can't say I practice any of it. I watch a little MMA, but I'm a big boxing fan.

How easy is it, for example, to fool the Ion Migration test which shows when the ink was applied to the paper?
It may be quite simple. It may not be. I don't know. Would Proffessor Barrett have known
Hi Herlock,

I don't know either, but the challenge has gone out scores of times since I've been treading these boards, for one of the scores of people who think it would have been a doddle, even for someone like Mike Barrett, to try their hand at one.

You can probably guess the rest.

Love,

Caz

Tbh, I think it's time to report Kaz for twice making fun of Asperger's, making consistently insulting posts and openly refusing to join in a reasonable discussion about the subject of the thread.

The Macgregor Mayweather fight was interesting. I was surprised he lasted so long.

The issue with this suggestion is that it proves nothing.

There were and are similar calls for people to recreate the Bigfoot suit seen in the Patterson Film, yet nobody considers that it wouldn't prove anything besides the fact that a suit could be made.

We already know that hoaxes can be made and can fool the so-called experts, we saw it with the Hitler diaries.

A better suggestion is for the believers to find literally any evidence that supports the idea that May wrote the diary and that he was the killer in question. This isn't rocket science.

3) Mention of a pub that didn't exist.

4) Wording for a listed item that matched the text for the same listed items in a book published a century later.

Have at it, Kaz.

A few pages ago you was asking about the Will and its reliability (was it really penned by James) but now you're willing to conclude its PROOF we have different styles of handwriting?


Your arguments are not nearly as strong as you think they're.

I wasn't too surprised, tbf, as Floyd is near 41 and hadn't fought for 2 years. He walked Conor down and showed him no respect. GGG v Canelo at the weekend, great fight!
