Yeah but 15 minutes here and there are bound to add up...especially if you have a window instead of leaving the site

I can't believe you guys are actually competing for this.

Also:  This thread has hit 40 pages.  Wow.

This thread was started with the announcement that I had made it to the top of the list. ha ha.

So I got an email of this picture in my email today.

It is too big to post so I will just link it.  So I decided to make a clean copy with paint and post what I think would be it's strengths and weaknesses.

Opinions or comments on anything about the defense?

It is very pretty Chris.  And as I've said before, 'gratz

The lines of forbiddance on the left side would mean you couldn't reach through and make those chalkings. It would also be very hard to make the chalkings on the right side. And if you wait to add the lines of forbiddance so you can draw the chalkings, that leaves you open to a line of revocation. Also, it looks like at least your left two mini-circles are 6-pointed ones, in which case there's another bind point you could use. The right two mini-circles' forbiddance lines are drawn out of proportion so they won't be effective.

question: is this the defense i would use in the case of a miyabi attack, or is this a defense that a miyabi would be expected to use against me?

I take my miyabi self-defense seriously.  >:(

Well, is there a rule that states you have to draw your lines of forbiddance right after you draw a circle?  Couldn't you draw the inner circle, then draw the outer circles, anchoring it down with those lines of forbiddance, and then after you've drawn everything you need draw the inner lines?

Eer - I'm not entirely sure.  ha ha.

Peter - Yeah, I think you'd have to do what Mi'ch suggests and be only anchored by the outside ones and even then you'd have to draw at least one chalking before you anchored those.  (And I such at using paint for things.)  Ha ha.  I realized they were out of proportion.  From EUOLs originally drawing I first though that the outside circles might be 6 point circles, but then I drew them as 4 point.  *Shrugs*  I'll have to play with it more and probably draw it and scan it in to make a better drawing with paint.

Yeah, if you open up the first link you can see his signature in the middle of it. ha ha.

I'm not too sure actually, apparently Mi'ch and Josh were saying something to him and he drew it on the board and was like, "If this isn't already a defense it is now the Miyabi Defense."  They then proceeded to send me an email of the picture ha ha.
