    But I also have no qualms with causing a person's death if that person is an imminent danger to me or my low taxes.

    Fixed for my friends Fran and Piobare...

    'Winning' fights has little or nothing to do with the decision to get into one for me.

    If I feel strongly enough that I will offer violence, then I accept that I will receive violence. I am quite prepared to take a beating in certain circumstances. (and have done in the past)

    The opponent, regardless of whether he 'wins' or not, will know he has been in a fight.

    That's enough for me.


    very honorable position

    #1 and #2 definitely. #3 as a preventative measure. Let's say the first time a guy starts just slapping a chick on the arm, next time he goes out he is confident enough to slap them on the ass when they are alone, the next time he slaps them on the ass in front of their boyfriend. Eventually, he might not take no for an answer. All it took to deter him in the first place was a punch in the gut the first time he got out of hand. If chivalry hadn't left, we wouldn't need to be having this discussion.



    Right, because sexual assault only arose during the decline of chivalry?[​IMG]

    I don't get violent in public. I do get violent with the maids when they break my things or they dont' do a good job at what they are paid to do.

    I wanna see this on TV.

    It takes a lot to make me angry. You'd have to kill a family member for me to get violent. Or spill coffee on a suede bag or something.

    I don't think I can recall ever having been in a serious fight. There have been a couple occasions as a kid or in my early teens, but none serious. Still, I do have a bit of a temper and it shows sometimes. The worst that has happened in recent years were a couple instances of me slapping someone or of me shoving someone. I am not proud of those occasions (I have done it to a woman) but still feel they were justified. To answer the OP, I think there are several dimensions to the question.
    • If I think about it now, rationally, I'd say that I can't think of any situation where I would feel justified to use real violence unless to respond to violence or deter an immediate and serious threat.
    • I am not sure I would hold my temper enough to hold that standard in a real-life situation.
    • Based on my previous experience, I am pretty sure it will almost never come to this in a real-life situation. Maybe I have been lucky, maybe I am just pretty good at avoinding stupid situations.

    just quick question it sems most people will engage in violence over little things does that mean you are willing to take the combat to it´s possible end being killed or killing the other person? it honestly seems a little much for simple sake of pride.

    If someone insulted my coffee routine, death would ensue. Lands would fall to waste. Entire companies of unborn armies would vaporize.

    I kill random bystanders over the smallest perceived slights. Everyone (on the internet) knows how tough I am.

    Where do you guys get into these fights, maybe I'm just lucky or very chill but I tend to calm things down very quickly when they escalate.

    [​IMG] I don't have much of a temper at all. I actually think I have a problem in that I can't get pissed enough when I should. This doesn't stop me from stepping in if I think I should, and can, defuse something, but I don't escalate things to the point of violence. The last time someone started coming at me and my friends for something one of them might have done (it was unclear), I (stupidly in hindsight) sent them to the trunk of my car for my baseball bat and pulled my pocket knife out on the "leader" of their little group, advancing toward him like I was ready for whatever. He turned 180 on a dime and ran back into the bar, and we left. Next time I saw him, he was the door guy at a different bar, and when I walked in he nodded and declined to ask for my ID. I think it was understood that he was out of line and I was defending myself and my friends, and luckily no further trouble came from that, because it could have gotten really bad really fast. That was like 8 years ago and I have rarely had any situation get close to violence since then.

    In the world I live in, if somebody grabs your wife's ass, and you "open a 32 ounce can of whoop ass" on him, you spend the night in the brink, look forward to your court date, and your chance of getting clearance or having lucrative employment are wiped out for the rest of your life.

    I'm willing to bet some of you live in the same world, just off the internet.

    No way!! Haven't you heard? Experts in womanology can attest that the female species love to see some crushed bones and blood splatter... in the name of their honor and as a token of their companion's sweet affection, I mean. It's teh evolution stupid! We was programmed to do taht...
