We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Fighting in public is extremely unwise. Most impromptu fights are won by the first punch, greater strength or experience/training. You cannot know what your opponent is capable of or what they can do. Size is somewhat useful in predicting outcomes but often is deceiving. If you lose, especially if you take any action at ll that can be perceived as being willing to participate you will be considered a willing combatant and not a victim. Almost every fight that goes past the first punch, i.e. you weren't knocked out/down right away, will go to the ground. The odds are that people who like to fight or instigate a fight have a ground game, do you? Ground fighting is deadly especially if your opponent has friends who are eager to kick you while you are down. Even if you have a ground game, which every ex high school wrestler thinks they do, it is likely your opponent has a "get off me" tool. If you don't have one and your opponent does you cannot win even if you think you are stronger or took two years of Kung Fu. Fighting strangers in a bar or anywhere is a lose/lose situation.
I took a one-night self-defense course for women a long time ago. We were encourage to use the forearm bone and shin bone to do damage. Very strong and will do less damage to you. Women have more power in their legs than upper body, so you can really whack the hell out of someone by taking aim at their outer thigh and kicking the front of your shin into it as hard as you can.
Most fun I've ever had! I'm not a physically aggressive person, but was encouraged to swear up a storm and batter the hell out of some guy covered from head to toe in padding.
