The only thing that prevented me from jumping in front of a bus in college was the knowledge that if everything didn’t work out, I could always travel to China and be a Shaolin Monk. Whenever your professor tells you that you write like an ‘infantile retard’, the ‘Shaolin Monk’ career option seems just a little bit more reasonable. Traveling the earth, defending the weak, rocking orange apparel everywhere you go and being considered a demi-god by the Wu-Tang Clan is a pretty good way to live the rest of your life. Dan Hardy knew this, and in 2002 (roughly the same time I decided to become a Shaolin Monk), Hardy traveled to China and began flying through the air and balancing his weight on bamboo shoots. If you don’t believe me, check out this interview conducted by LayzieTheSavage of Dan Hardy talking about traveling to China to train with monks, Georges St. Pierre, ex-girlfriends and the high probability that he will be a US citizen in the future.
