Tothian is.. a bit over enthusiastic in his roessnpes, but he is, for the most part correct. And to DJ, many of us do, in fact, stay in the shadows and use self defense weapond. I'm not going to give out names because, as has already been stated, that is kind of the point of the secret identity. There is actually a slarge divide in the community between the colorful and the non colorful, and the masked and the non masked. Some, such as Clearwater's SUPERHERO, wear bright spandex and don't wear a mask. But they do so because that is how they choose to operate. They aren't the type to slink in and out of the shadows. That's not to say they ONLY do charity work- they do that a lot, but Superhero regularly gives roadside assistance and keeps a lookout for crime. I would bet my life that if he saw someone getting mugged, he would intervene. The fact that he has no secret identity means nothing. Find a picture of the guy, he's built like a lighthouse.But he knows there are risks. We all do. many of us have seen firsthand. One of the greatest among our ranks had an injury that ended up in him being blinded in one eye for several months. We accept that we may end up the same or worse (and yes, the lying dead in an alley idea is not new to us. we accpet that it is very likely). But we are prepared. I can't even count the number of conversations of seen about kevlar and pepper spray and stun guns and dragonskin. Most of us our trained in martial arts, from jiu jitsu to krav maga to escrima sticks. The costume question? It's hard to place. For some people, it's a matter of camoouflage, and being able to belnd into the shadows. For others it's a matter of theatrics and inciting fear in those who confront you. Others still use it as a way to be a symbol, a beacon or a rallying point for your cause. Many of us, though, cannot explain it. Dropping your casual everyday clothes to wear a costume is oddly empowering. You feel closer to the ranks of Batman and Superman, even though you know you don't have powers or a billion dollars worth of equipment. It just feels right. Why does a police officer wear a unifrom? Why does the president wear a suit? It's just the way it's supposed to be.Believe me, we're not just a bunch of geeks who think you can put on a costume and start catching crooks. It's wierd on the surface, yes. I didn't hardly believe it when I first stumbled upon the community. But after I really met these people I was inspired enough to devote myself to training so that I will someday be ready to make a difference the same as them. http://qlitdmjz.com [url=http://vjingkvzfo.com]vjingkvzfo[/url] [link=http://wttfcmed.com]wttfcmed[/link]

Hello all,First I would like to state that the view of Tothian does not represent the view of all Real Life Superheroes.There are many rnosaes why individuals chose to call themselves Real Life Superheroes. It does seem like an over glorified term for basically costumed activist, but it is one of the many terms used by the media.A majority of Reals, if you wish, work within the confines of the law. A few actually work with their local police too. They act as any responsible citizen would, but have chosen a dynamic way of conveying their message. And definitely anyone can do what Real Life Superheroes do.Personally, I do safety patrols (which I do walk around in both costume and regular clothes) with First-Aid and CPR training as well as a chock full of phone numbers for different divisions of the police. Real Life Superheroes should not act outside the law. Vigilantism is a crime. At the same time, I have been working on a lot of fund raising stuff. And if I put on a silly costume but is able to raise money for charities, then hey it's worth it.So yeah, I think a majority of us understands how this looks. And yeah, it’s kind of geeky. But you know, I can look back on my and life and say “Hey there was a crazy time I did this. But a lot of good came from it; we’ve help a lot of people and it has helped me lead a more fulfilling and positive life.”DJ,As for concealing weapons, you need to look into the laws of your city or even state. Some states allow certain self defense weapons; others do allow them as long as they are out in the open. I myself carry a baton, stun gun and pepper spray. I don’t have a taser because that is illegal in Multnomah County and mucho expensive. But then again, for the few times I broken up fights between homeless people, a taser is like overkill and doesn’t solve really any situation. This is another reason why some RLSHer do their homework and figure out what would make impact in their community and dress accordingly. What I do have is solely for my protection and if need be the protection of others. Self defense weapons are only for self defense. Breaking arms and legs doesn’t not solve the overall problems on why individuals chose to commit crimes. It only puts a band-aid on a greater social problem. Other RLSHers realize this and work to inform and teach their neighbors on how to protect themselves and how to utilize the crime fighting resources in their cities. But yeah, research what is legal and not where you live. Buying just any old weapon and walking around with them is kind of asking for trouble.

Toen ik begin deze week in mijn cd winkel in Amersfoort was, liep ik tegen je cd Violent Viola aan. Ik heb die onmiddellijk gekocht, beluisterd en kort op mijn site besproken (rubriek 'CD verzamelprogramma's' onder A). Afgezien van licht gemopper over de onvoldoende achtergrondinfo ben ik vol lof voor je!
Misschien heb je er nog iets aan voor publicitaire doeleinden.
