    Huh. didn't know that - I was never that interested in Street Fighter as a kid...

    All I can say is, I'm just glad his skin is green and not, y'know...

    Guile's stupid shield -- what a cheap move. And that leg sweep that could take out Manhatten?
    But Sagat had cute bandages. Take it back! Take it back!

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    At least a Brazilian having a white mother with blonde hair and blue eyes is reasonably plausible....unlike every martial arts expert in East Asia being white:
