    I wailed on this whiny redneck one day my sophomore year, but that's about it.

    Haven't been in a fight. Growing up I was always the tallest out of my peers and right now I'm 6'4'' 230lbs of mostly muscle, I can get most people to back down before anything escalates.

    If I entered the situation where the opposing party still won't back down and they are posing more of a threat (be it seriously outmatched (size, numbers), weapons carried by them,etc.), my friend that I carry in my pocket is there to stand by my side (mine is the top one):


    Which will later be complimented by a firearm, once I hit my 21st birthday and can buy a handgun and get a conceal carry permit.

    Several, all of which I have won. Though I did break my hand by hitting a guy once.

    quite a few. ambiguous results, especially since i had the habit of charging into groups of people all alone.
    if you're too drunk to knock out the right one or two guys with the initial hits and then noone reacts fast enough to cover your ass that should now be on the ground this will go horribly wrong.

    also got beaten up by the police a few times, but hey, if you throw stones at them you really cant complain that much.

    always got out without injuries requiring medical treatment though, dont ask me how.

    Got beat up once after coming home from a club. Two wannabe gangsters and their female escort, who, I have to admit, did the greatest damage. :(

    I once punched someone so hard I broke my spine.

    I'm a parapalegic now, and I still win most of my fights.

    :)

    to be fair, broken hands are a pretty common fist fight injury.

    Interestingly, this is why boxers hit much much harder then bare-knuckle fighters ever could. Also why boxing bouts are relatively short.

    The last time I fought was when I was about 12. Probably because I moved, and the only person I ever got in physical fights with was my next door neighbor. So basically, I stopped fighting because I didn't have anyone to fight.;)

    Exactly one.

    And I didn't even have to win. The fight ended in a tie. But the perpetrator, knowing he would get injured whenever he messed with me, never bothered me again. Moral of the story: violence does work.

    as an adult, 3 times. 1 when someone tried to mug me, (i beat him up) then 2 of them were football related fights between fans of different clubs and i was in the fight.

    I'm ashamed of the latter, cause in one of those fights, someone got seriously injured.

    Never started a fight and I've only been attacked twice but the same guy, and both times the bouncers kicked him out. It was on seperate occasions in the same place. I'm pretty hard to genuinely piss off.

    I'm a wimp so none yet.

    I'm doing two over summer this year though, maybe more. Team Fight Night and stuff. Those fights are picked to be as even as possible but I anticipate winning both :D

    That doesn't really count as a 'fight' though compared to yours.

    I've joined in on a few jumpings in my day.. (mostly after some random jerk decides to hurt the feelings of a girl one of my friends knows and protects). I've even been on the receiving end once. But I rarely ever pick fights or had them since I tend to possess a mellow personality that only drunk people could get annoyed with.

    How many fights have I been in? One. It was at school and arrangements had been made for me and this other kid to fight. As I had no beef with him, all I did was fend him off and try not to hurt him until he grew tired of "fighting" and called it quits.

    I've been molested twice. One time I was out in Amsterdam with a young lady I liked. As the both of us don't live there, we planned on returning by train (same way we came, that is). On the waiting platform, some baldish guy I had never seen in my life before (he had come up to the platform like 30 seconds after us), walks up to me and starts butting his forehead against my head. (He couldn't have been that tall as he hit my lip, which I noticed bleeding some, and I am not a tall person myself.) I was so perplexed by this behaviour that I just stood there until he stopped and said: "I can go on with this." (Or some words to that effect.) So I said: - No, that won't be necessary. (I remember thinking of my date, not wanting her to become involved in this in any way, so I couldn't just walk away from him.)

    The other time was a couple of hundred meters from where I live. I was walking kind of fast, carrying a backpack of sorts, on my way to the supermarket, when one of two guys (late teens, perhaps early twenties, though I doubt it), tripped me, so I bumped into the other one, causing him to say: "Hey, you bumped into me!" (Yeah, obviously, because I just got tripped...) After which the both of them just started kicking and punching at me. Now I wore kind of a thick coat, so at some point I just got annoyed and said: - Now you better stop. (I addressed the instigator, ignoring his sidekick.) He replied: "Or what?" I said nothing, but turned from them and started jogging off. (I couldn't really run, because of the backpack.) I noticed the leader of the two some time after that in the neighbourhood, but haven't seen either of them since.

    I wouldn't be able to remember the faces of anyone who I've gotten into a "fight" though, as they quite simply mean nothing to me. (I don't know them, nor are they friends of mine. I remember the occasions, ofcourse, the momentary fear, the rage, but not the people; I only remember people I care about.) Needless to say I think all fights are quite pointless; it simply shows the inability of certain people to settle issues verbally.

    :cringe: I am assuming in Dutch molested means the same as in Spanish, as in "bothered, pestered etc"

    But in English it usually means that someone did things to you sexually that you didn't approve of. Just remember that, it could cause some confusion in real life :crazyeye:

    Also I agree with your closing statement :)
