    Yeah exactly. It's a fucked situation all the way around. And then there's the question of what if I have a CCW (carry concealed weapon permit) and they pull a knife on me, and I blast them. A lot of places, most notably texas, I'd imagine you'd be fine. But here, in all honesty, even with a CCW (which the entire course emphasizes to not shoot unless it's absolutely life or death), a knife being pulled on you, your life being threatened; you'd still probably get 2nd degree murder or manslaughter. Granted you killed them anyway. Scratch in "attempted" if they live.

    I think mace is probably the way to go. Blind them and run. Make sure not to get yourself, and I've also heard "civilian" mace can be weak sometimes. Also, some people it incapacitates them, others it does next to nothing.

    Maybe I put too much faith in the police, I know quite a few that don't fall into the bad cop category. Maybe they do have better things to do. But they're there for your safety (as cliche as that is), so I'd make use of them.

    This damned city has it's fine share of problems. One night, a group of drunk guys started arguing right outside my open window, about to get into a fight. As my window is ground level, I was scared poopless. Eventually I went into the kitchen and called the cops. Although the guys were gone by then, I felt better knowing a few police cars had stopped by the check things out. I'm sure those guys could have been putting some time in on a robbery or something, but call me selfish.

    It's not even that they might be apathetic or have bad intentions (which could very well be the case) but rather the fact that her call would be about 5 hours away in the queue and they'd probably expect her to stay at the scene and give an ultimately dead-end report. Right.

    You need to adopt a "Stab first, ask questions later" stance I would suggest.

    jesus christ don't get a knife, if you pull a knife on someone you're going to get stabbed or shot if they have a weapon, something like pepper spray is good because it tells people to fuck off and stuns them but seriously having a knife or weapon is going to get someone killed. thats a fucked up story though, that guy deserves to get his balls stomped.

    Nah, it wouldn't have made the difference for them.
    You did the right thing by calling the cops. Something like this used to happen to a girl I used to be friends with. A few guys that were usually drunk or stoned, used to start shit with people all the time, especially any girls in the area.

    I've never given much thought to bears. They're fucking weird. Kind of half canine half feline in appearance in a way. Kinda.

    I've had a female one standing up about 15 feet away in the trees staring me down once when I was about 12 or something. Not a very pleasant experience.

    Oh I've also had them go through my campsites a few times too. I remember hearing one sniffing around directly behind my tent. Hell it may have even stuck it's nose inside. I fell asleep with my eyes open because I remember waking up and not having to open them.

    I wonder if it's as bad as seeing a woman, the size of a bear, stare at you like as if you're her lunch

    I want bear arms. Also, the next I'm in bear country, I'm carrying a sword or my hammer from now on. They say no guns, but they don't say no swords or hammers. Loophooooole!

    AGREED!
    I'm sorry that happened isabel, assholes like that deserve to be castrated slowly by having their balls dipped in sulfuric acid, so that they fall off.

    If you are about to get raped and you pull a knife a rapist would probably kill you on the spot. Probably you will be too shocked (i'm talking from statistics) to react further, or you will stab him and will have to go through a bunch of legal shit.
    Pulling a knife is a shit idea, but if someone would pull a knife on me and i was close enough i would kick him in the balls then kick in the kneecap, if i wasn't close enough to do that without getting stabbed, I would run as far as possible and call the cops via a cellphone, or just get the cellphone out and pretend to dial a 3 digit number. Rapists and perverts like that are insecure cowards in most cases, and they will run or give up if they sense the slightest chance of getting caught.

    A pepper spray would be a good idea, as Andrew said. Trying to control fear next time this happens (god forbid, I don't wish it would happen to anyone), fear is what they crave sometimes. En vid av song's approach of hit first ask questions later is good only if you can deliver an ass whooping really fast to take the guy out (that is not punching to the face, kidney punche,s kneecap kicking, ball kicking, stern punch).

    I just remembered about chick I know in Romania that got assaulted by three macho guys. She beat them beat them all up, held them down until the cops arrived. (she is a black belt). Assholes are still doing time and are probably malnutritioned in a jail somewhere in romania for the next 3 years.

    I know. My humor is lost on you.


    Clearly what she needs is throwing stars. Who's going to keep advancing when they look down and realize "oh my fuck I have a throwing star, in my spleen"
