Which animals could you beat in a fight?........

https://www.zerohedge.com/medical/which-animals-could-you-beat-fight

Delusional overestimation (likely studly fit males) evidenced in the graph. The comments in this article are quite revealing as many therein come from a general population of above average intelligence and experience.

Well besides being a tad bored with the current BLF threading I thot this has relevance
LED-wise considering there are plenty of highly leveragable baton-style or just plain lengthier flashes marketed.

Ya need leverage and most importantly able to employ with speed . We’re talking watt ya should have by the front and rear doors or when ya take a stroll in the local park playing Mr. Hip Flash.

Hopefully most of yuz don’t load these up with heavy batts cuz that doesn’t help ya with
the speed aspect. Instead load them up with let’s say 2 to 3 AA (Eneloop) C to D adapters.

Just enuff to get past the Vf.

Speed, Accuracy, Surprise.

I’ve got PS’s coming on anecdotes and some muscle and skeletal differences between us and them that may give ya a different perspective on watt I mean here. Shocked

PS. One main reason why a chimp will fook up the biggest baddest dude ya know.

How their arms are put together. Look at your elbow area/bottom of your forearm. Our tendons, etc., connect to the rest of the arm by short lengths of these from the elbow fulcrum point. The chimp tho’ has these connecting pretty much from the wrist all the way to the biceps.

Otherwise known as leverage. So when an enraged chimp uses this innate advantage besides sheer muscle density, you basically don’t have a prayer. Much less massive teeth and jaw structure. Even toddler chimps if they need to will basically overwhelm a 6’, 200lb human adult male.

PSS. I tangled with a standard black 15lb adult run of the mill male house cat once . Was rough housing with him pretty good while on its back. All of a sudden he changed demeanor. When I say changed I mean…..“I’ve had enuff of you twirling me around on my back, grabbing and yanking my tail, ears, whiskers, MF. Let’s play some major league BALL shall we.”

Next thing I know the SOB starts mightily kicking with his rear paws, claws fully deployed. Front paws/claws locked around my arm. Blazing speed. Then he bites almost clean through the thumb/index finger web. He raked my forearm so bad I still have grooved scars 20 years later. I bled a touch. He would’t let go either. Until I guess he figured the subtle message was sent and was I ready for Round 2 now?

Yup when a house cat growls…….“RRRRRUUURAAAUUURRRLLLL!!!!” in that deep guttural way he’s tellin’ ya go find another fookin’ hobby besides annoying me AH.

Forget about a male cat locked up in the house and horny as hell with females outside raising a ruckus. They will take ya on brother as in chasing ya around the house; learned that as a young boy. Siamese’s ain’t to trifle with either. Horniness in animals. Yikes!. Fearless.

Pissed off little house cats are highly underrated. Powerful critters. When they want to show ya just how strong get outta Dodge. I lost. Now imagine what a 150lb cougar will do to you. Shocked

It’s not about the size here in Australia we have a issues with a bird called the magpie, they swoop on people and try pick and sctrach your head and eyes. They cause injuries and accidents. How do you defend yourself from a bird?

I know exactly what kind of animal I can beat (twice) in a fight for survival on the street, unscathed. Because I had a gun. Because I have the freedom to have a gun. Because I have the intelligence to know that I have to carry a gun to survive unscathed when I set foot out my door onto my unfenced residential property, and (the horror!) onto the public street.

Because my neighbors have the freedom to select dangerous animals as pets. And because the dangerous animals just simply "get out".

Your timing is propitious. In today's news, two people in north Houston were not defended with a firearm, so they became two of seven million victims of injury annually in the USA by the Almighty *og. I use an asterisk, because I do not want to take in vain the name of the Almighty Do*,  that some people worship and serve and love more than their neighbor, whom they obviously hate.

I feel ya, I have snake shot, as the first shot in my revolver. Mainly as a nasty warning if needed for rabid animals. If not there’s 5 non warnings. Only on my property. No concealed carry for me. Concealed carry is a heavy responsibility,

Geeze. Horrific injuries. Had little idea that bird has abilities to do this.

Carry a racquet ball racquet in areas where this is known to be a big problem?

I feel like if I had an aluminum bat (or a nice stick), I would be fine with just about any animal. Isn’t that part of being human, being able to use tools to our advantage? But you would have to be very quick and precise since you probably only get a swing or 2 before it’s all over.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Aluminum bat. Excellent. Was gonna be a PS. I’ve determined that a Little League size and weight aluminum bat is near purrfect. Preferrably no more than 26” in length. Speed.

Can be readily found in thrift stores for less than $5.

Yeah, as in, “Don’t you die like Gramma and Grampa did, Turkleton!”.

So now you don’t wrangle snakes or drink strychnine.

I would put my money on any animal larger than a medium size dog. Even something as small as a raccoon would be pretty formidable I think. They have teeth, can be single minded in attacking, and are quick.

Why do cops shoot attacking dogs rather than clubbing them?

Let’s take wolverines for something on the small size. They are about the size of a medium dog yet have been known to kill bears.

Chimps are several times stronger than people, have arms, and are intelligent as non-humans go. I’d definitely would put my money on them.

Anything like lions, tigers, gorillas, etc are going to be a short and ugly contest for sure.

Honestly speaking, probably a small to mid-sized dog, if it was just my fists and feet. But I agree with what others have said, with a bat or some other sturdy weapon? I’d feel much more able.

I remember reading a story years ago in a… err… men’s magazine about a guy that had his skull cracked by a cougar but still managed to overcome the beast. As a teenager that was an interesting read.

1-2 years later I was out camping and looking for firewood when I came upon a large group of kangaroos. I thought I’d be polite and move off to one side in the scrub… where I came upon a male relaxing with 2 females. The females seemed mostly unperturbed but the male immediately stood up tall looking straight at me, scratched the ground in front of him and stood tall again. The roo was still shorter than me (I’m 6’3”…or was at the time) but it seemed like the presence of the roo was bigger than me. I backed up slowly and tried to disappear into the scrub.

I’ve had a few moments that got my heart rate up – cows/ bulls, horses, snakes, dogs, maybe 1-2 others. I think it really depends on the situation and how lucky you are. I don’t think I could win/kill against many animals but I might stay alive.

The digital mouse has still got me f’‘’‘d though Oops

Motorbike helmet or maybe it should be called “walk outside helmet” then.

Birds sure like eyes. Those weird feathered flying lizards.

When we were on vacation in Uganda 8 years ago we were within touching distance of a family of mountain gorillas. The guides wouldn’t let us get closer than a few feet away because of the fear of giving them our germs and diseases.

They were really peaceful and mellow, with an infant playing on a tree branch close to us. Of course when 2 males decided to charge each other I about jumped out of my shoes Facepalm

I think “win a fight” depends an awful lot on the word win…
And the conditions at the time. With full winter garb an encounter with an aggressive dog would end badly for the dog (assuming my 40 years younger – 6’3 220lb.- than now self). In shorts and a tee-shirt, at my current age, it would end badly for me.

Add a weapon into the mix, once again it depends on what win means. Feed the ?? your arm and cut its throat with a moderate sized knife.. You win, but maybe never regain full use of your arm.

In the era of the old time African big game hunters I have read accounts of one hunter dispatching a lion with a knife. Also a leopard being done in with a knife.
Both hunters did not go away unscathed.
Someplace I read that a leopard encounter is measured in stitches per second. Like 100!

For some reason Kangaroos seem to come up in these discussions. Why? Perhaps it’s the boxing thing.
A Big Red male Roo could easily open you up from eyes to toes if so inclined. The key word is so inclined.

As for people keeping exotics for pets – You must always be prepared for when you say
“Get off the couch!”
And the critter turns to you and says
“NO! Make Me”.
you should never own something you can’t beat in a fight.
All the Best,
Jeff

Fruit Flies .

I know their weakness—rotting fruit. Even in a room clouded with ‘em, I set out my trap—a tall glass with rotting fruit at the bottom, then step back. They can’t help themselves. Within minutes they’re swarming about in the glass, eager to lay eggs in the rotting fructus. Then… with deft hand, the glass is covered, trapping the helpless varmints. I saunter over to the sink, start a heavy stream of water and tuck it between thumb-forefinger to begin a rapid filling of the glass. Halfway, I stop. And then… the MAYHEM. I vigorous shake the glass. The fruit flies face their aqua armageddon, violently tossed about, most of them drowning. I remove my hand to survey the carnage. Ah, a few of the pesky buggers still live, twitching about in the fruit swill floating at the surface. I feign rescue with my finger, which they gratefully latch onto as I raise it up. But in their dazed confusion, they know not what’s coming—another finger. To bring on the game “Fly Crush.” I am their demon.
