I might respond with, "I've been trained and can take the average dude. Anytime you want to try let me know."

    i don't just randomly walk up and say, "Dude, I bet my little sister could beat your ass."

    Randomly threatening small people (especially women) makes you a douche. Making comments at people considerably larger than you makes you suicidal.
    He wasn't threatening me, s much as trying to spar with a touchy topic (that he KNEW to be touchy, as hed been warned) on a day when I was in a particularly foul mood and anyone and everything. I generally stay away from cracks about people's physicalities, etc. dangerous territory. With the Guys, I know where the limits are and what topics to avoid. With most folks, especially if I have no clue about them at all (no affiliations, friends in common, etc.) I just keep my mouth shut. Which, by the way, is a really hard thing to do if you have a smartass comment to make.

        My only weather related GOTD is that I was out in the sun too long today and now I have a headache. Wah!
        Thank you! And on that note, my gripe of the day is why after earthquakes in Haiti and what happened in Japan, are we so quick to raise money and resources to send to them but with what happened in Tuscaloosa is there no asking for donations for the AMERICANS?

        And another thing....
        Why is it that when tragedy strikes in the south do the reporters always find the toothless-wonder with a 5th grade education and the diction of a backwoods hillbilly standing with his bare-footed first-cousin-wife with 10 kids have to be interviewed infront of thier single-wide and outhouse?
        I learned a valuable lesson with the first steer I sent to slaughter. I should have named him Hamburger and not Snookers.

        • @CoyoteVick---OUCH! That's why I go to female gynos. I think they understand what they are doing to us. Been there, done that sort of a thing.

              There's all of 3 of those families in West Texas, but they find them for every damn wildfire. I hear ya.

              • GotD: My c-section incision opened up AGAIN. Not a lot but I am really, really frustrated. My baby's almost five months old already, this is ridiculous!

                • When my mom has huge eyes and tells me not to eat that/so much, i was eating mushrooms and meat, as she then proceeds to microwave her weight watchers endorsed frozen meal. ugh. pisses me off. and THEN tells me to go on the treadmill. lovely isn't it?
                  I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

                    I have a buddy from way back who has always looked in shape (looks...he is actually pathetically out of shape). He constantly makes little comments about my weight. Now, while there has never been one day since I have known him that I could not kick his skinny ass, I have refrained from doing so. Today I get a text, "That's great you have lost that weight. Still, bunch more to go!"

                    Now, I honestly do not give two shits what he thinks. I have enough self-esteem for most of this forum combined but when a dude who can't do 10 pushups says some shit like that it really should be legal to beat the everliving shit out of him. Just sayin.
                    I'm generally pretty pacific, but some people really need a good asskickin'. I'd put my money on you.

                              You weren't wearing one of those t-shirts with fried eggs over the nipples, were you? Or the demure shirt I just saw on another website that said "Sluts have more fun" right across the chest?

                              • I was working as an engineer on a construction site a while back where there was a severe outbreak of boobfixation. I was talking to one of the supervisors and he was riveted on my chest. I was leaning against a wall so I sort of slid down until my eyes were where my boobs were. He kept looking down. Finally I was sitting on the floor and he asked if I was ok. "Yes, just trying to maintain eye contact"

                                I never had a problem again. With ANY of the workers
