    Don't expect much, it's kinda childish. Still, I don't regret watching it for the sword fencing and Mila Jovovich in tight clothes.

      Goes both ways. Those with best duelling skills could become bigger assholes

        Won't work. People who are bigger/fitter will win. Winning doesn't mean one is in the right.

          It would only work if the challanger had to accept the choice of duel of the challangee, and any form of competition was acceptable, not just fighting, so you could choose chess, juggling skills, sword fighting, dungens and dragons, quiz on Dr Who facts, anything.

          Then the looser would have to stand up public and admit to being an arse-hole, that might rein unessary dualing as you would have to be propper pissed with some-one to risk a dual.

                      I'm all for dueling however not with guns but with something that doesn't involve death as we shouldn't weaken ourselves. Also if someone challenges say a bigger individual to a dual for a "slight" done to their person and even if they lose they have fought with "honor" and it exposes inner strength. Also as a boy I grew up in a third world country and among those that only looked at strength (not always the physical) as one of the best qualities to have in a friend or ally. Also growing up in that environment your enemy today becomes your best friend tomorrow despite whether or not you win or lose the fight.

                      I know it would flush out the cravens among us for sure. Whoever posted gladiatorial contests I would be game as I might have a bit of an advantage. : )

                        I am all for dueling myself. No guns but everyone should be required to carry a proper knife. if you knew that being a jackhole would earn you a blade in the ass, folks would be a whole lot more respectful.

                        Sure there may be a period of breaking in and anyone who develops a rep as a duelist will loose the right to carry anything but a butter knife. I always am armed, always. In Canada thats a bit of a no-no but tough.

                        I am firmly convinced that there are too many people wasting my personal supply of oxygen and many people that need a proper spanking.

                        Public whippings for many crimes also I think is a good idea. Oh ya wanna drive drunk do ya? well then 15 lashes the first time. Ya wanna take what aint yers? well then 10 lashes first offence. Rape? ohh baby thats gonna cost ya. Murder? well now we have a problem, was it intentional or accidental?

                        Mayhaps it is a good thing I am not in any way in any kind of social power and mayhaps it is a shame I am not.

                        Ya cant raise a dog to bite then punish it when it bites as a grown dog. Raise em respectful, educate them properly from the get go and watch society bloom.

                          I disagree with this because there is a huge risk for both parties in a duel; just because a person happens to be a quick draw doesn't guarantee that s/he will be the 'winner'. There is some degree of luck involved in a duel, and no matter how good someone is, there is always a chance that the other person is better.

                          Plus, there is also always the chance that the winner is injured (especially true if the duel involved swords or some type of blade).

                          Therefore, it's generally in a person's best interests to avoid a duel, regardless of skill level. Winning one duel doesn't guarantee winning the next.

                            Hence why being well behaved is encouraged. Dueling would never be a huge thing as it would be dangerous to everyone involved so folks learned to keep their yap shut. and a lot of the excitable ones get weeded out fast.

                              Yup, we need duels. They don't need to be to the death. A good ole fashion challenge to "take it outside" would suffice. As is there are legal repercussions to such activity even when both participants are willing. I think it would alleviate some general bottled up aggression and repressed anger win or lose for many people. Of course we are relying on old school (or fight club) rules that says "tapping" or going limp would end the bout. Either way a little violence is inherent to being human, so why try to deny it? Accept it and make it a part of the culture rather than continuing to suppress it.
