You can figure out the rest.

Just so that you are aware, 90% of people living in France get anal pleasure out of ratting people out.

Fact.

Why bye bye? A single infraction wouldn't typically be enough for a ban.

I was head-butted by a very large and very drunk man at a bar once. Reason: I accidentally knocked over his beer while acting out a story for someone. I promised to buy him a new one, but then got waylaid at the bar talking to someone and he didn't like waiting. No, he didn't like it at all.

Had a bump on my head the size of a tennis ball.


Then I started crying. I am not ashamed to admit that for the excellent reason that this text is white.

Fighting was a fact of life growing up in my neighborhood in the 70s. I've been involved in countless fights as a young teenager all the way up to joining the service, where fighting for fun stopped from that time forward. Mostly I gave it out, and even now 30 years later think about those who took a beating for our amusement with regret. Sometimes I was on the receiving end though.

I remember being 16 and a guy who was a local badass and in the USMC at the time grabbed me and wanted me to dime on a friend(who was standing nearby). That was by far the worst beating I've ever seen or been apart of. With military boots this guy beat and kicked me into a spoked hubcapped while the snow around turned red. He complemented me on taking a beating. My friend was scared more than I was and was yelling "Tell him Mikey did it". I couldn't feel anything and just started swearing at the guy and telling him he was a p***y and couldn't punch for s**t. He ended up walking away. The black and blue bruises made me look like a raccoon for some time.

Another time my friends and I were doing something with a guys car we shouldn't have been doing. The owner came out of nowhere and the chase was on. I had slippery sneakers on and couldn't gain traction in the snow. He caught me and inflicted another severe one. Funny thing is he then took me into his office and sat me down for his whole office staff to look at. He then took me to the police station and explained he wanted me arrested. The cop took the guy around the corner where I heard him blasting the guy out for the apparent wailing the guy gave me. the cop chewed me out and I was on my way.

One time I was completely innocent - where I was walking down the street and two guys approached me, one was giving the heads up like "hey, you got a cigarette?" He then hit me with a shot that sent me right down. I bolted back to my work, and the cops came since I needed a ride to get stitched up. The cop was a friend and on his radio a call for a all cars respond to suspects who were n pursuit came in. He asked if I minded the extra ride, I said no problem. We found the guys running over a hill, and I was left in the back seat while the friend and his partner jumped into the chase. After awhile another cop car pulls up behind the car I'm in. The cop looked in saw me, and thought I was one of the suspects. Makes sense, I'm in the back of the car, and I have a cut and blood on the side of my face. A crowd is gathering around, including people I know, and the cop grabbed me and started threatening what he was going to do to me. When I tried to explain he cut me off. Finally my friend came down the hill scared at the scene which was about to take place and jumped in to explain.

That was a close double whammy beating.

It all depends on where you live and what the accepted norm is. In some places if you didn't beat you got beat. Glad I no live where I do, and my son will never know different while he's growing up.

Two weeks?

Good. I reported him when he said some really inappropriate and nasty things to Shifuimam in a thread a few weeks back and am glad to see the mods cracked down on for his comment to Monique. Regardless of what you (collectively) think of Monique what he said to her was not acceptable under any circumstances.

Thanks mods to whoever dropped the hammer on Calverson. feel free to delete this post if it proves to be too much of a derail.

One should never stop striving for clarity of thought and precision of expression.
I would prefer my humanity sullied with the tarnish of science rather than the gloss of religion.

How sad. Obviously just bored. Nothing better to do but harass their middle-aged neighbors.

What if that old dude had been a nut-job and come busting out of his apartment with a sawn-off shotgun? It happens.

Pro boxer. Ouch. I was still standing though, and even landed some shots.

the boxer was either not very pro, or he was seriously holding back, or it was a publicity stunt.

I'm trained at competitive amateur level, and it was during a sparring session. Details...

My face was still pretty sore though
