After reading everyone's replies so far, I believe that no one here knows what they're talking about.
Firstly, the chinese, as always, take things to the next pointless level. Making kids promise to become manlier is a sure way to create more tension
and more divide between "alpha-males" and "sissies".
But as pointless as that is, I see a lot of guys saying it would be nice to end fights with fists again. I see a lot of people being offended by
believing that they themselves are the "sissies" of the world.
I do not CARE about your "metrosexual" types or "homosexual" types or whatever sexual thing you think you are.
In my personal opinion, lack of intelligence is rampant from individuals who believe that gender, sexuality, or color matter for anything besides
MEDICAL EMERGENCIES. They are physical attributes and must be dealt with purely physically.
Now as for all you guys who want to hit a guy in the face, get over yourself. IT takes a stronger man to absorb the frustration and have a chat about
the stupidity. If you must resort to defending yourself, don't feel proud that you skinned your knuckles on the idiot's face. You should be angry
at the idiot for feeling like he/she had something to prove.
As for all you guys who want to defend their, for lack of a better term, "lack of manliness", get over yourselves. Everyone is afraid, but y'all
take afraid to the next level - a dangerous level. Why be so afraid when you're going to die someday? How incredibly pathetic is that? Being
passive is NOT a good thing. Being aggressive is a staple of being a man! Aggressive doesn't always have to be a negative thing. IT can be a
positive thing as long as you try to keep the right attitude.
Competition arises from aggression. The trick is not to be a prick when you lose!
But of course, some people will lose more than others... then they become afraid. Cry me a danged river. I bet the "metros" here have had a LOT
less run-ins with people - especially since you aren't Tarzan the Christian! Try that one on for size, yeah?
Except I was raised by no fools. I can think, react, and move faster than everyone I know. I can lift more than most people my weight. I can throw
faster and farther than -anyone- I know. I learn more quickly than anyone I know. In fact, there isn't a thing that I can't do. Most everything
I've put my mind to is accomplished.
And yet, I am also pretty good at making people feel unthreatened and therefore less likely to want to fight. In fact, one of the most common ways
for me to dissolve a fight is to have the idiots start making fun of me and saying how I'm "not worth the effort". All the while, they fail to
realize that it was my idea all along.
An earlier poster indicated that you don't see tough people involved with higher learning. If you don't know my posts in threads, then I suggest
you refer to Dr. Klitschko.
He has the highest knockout percentage (95%) of any heavyweight boxing champion in overall fights. He also holds the distinction of being a three time
world heavyweight champion, having previously held the WBO and WBC titles, and has never been knocked out or knocked down in any professional boxing
His younger brother, Wladimir Klitschko, is the current IBF, WBO, IBO and Ring Magazine world heavyweight champion. Vitali is the first professional
boxing world champion to hold a Ph.D. (in sports science).
Well, now that I've embarrassed myself a bit, Enjoy.
