    nameless wonder, none of your instances involve aggression or conflict, which is the context of jawing people that we are discussing. The fact that it can be such a goofy joke though only illustrates the point that I am making, that it is a relatively peaceable and harmless means of venting aggression.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Jack london, "Before Adam"

      I doubt the drunk guy even knew there was a woman in the shop. Even if he did, I'm not exactly the type of woman to inspire men to fight.
      Now if I were your mother I would be telling you that you shouldn't be hanging around "seedy" tattoo parlours in the first place.

          Yes in Jared Diamond's new book (see other thread under Research) there is quite a lot about arrows, and especially spears, but I dont recall a single mention of fists.

            I know. What have I become? Heavily tattooed and hanging out next to the adult bookstore. My mom would kill me if she knew.

              Seen a couple of fights, been in 2. I didn't take any big hits in those fights, but I have recently since taking up martial arts.

                I worked my way through grad school as a bartender in a pretty crazy bar. I have seen quite a few fights. It is so very true that they don't resemble the movie version in the least. Maybe it is because the fights I've seen are always between drunks, but the guys always looked so pathetic trying to get in a good hit or throw someone to the ground before getting tossed from the place.

                I have seen a couple of solid shots that looked like the took skill, but mostly it looks pretty sad.

                  Yesterdays newspaper had another story of some young guy who got into a minor argument with a stranger in a shopping mall food hall, and ended up being king hit. This young dud now has a brain injury from hitting his head when he fell. His life is not going to be what his parents had expected.

                  This is not an isolated case.

                  I don't get why it is socially acceptable to hit people when the results can be so much more serious than expected..

                    Saw relatively few fights, but one has stuck with me: a high school friend went into the Army and got transferred to a base in the city where I coincidentally had moved to a couple of years earlier, so I would sometimes go on base and visit at the barracks. One day he met me in the front entrance, which was unusual, as I was used to just walking up the central stairs to his room, the two of us having made definite plans for a visit. Well, he proceeds to take me up a side stairs, which was on the opposite side of the building, and two floors up I saw why... there were lookouts posted, and two guys were having at it in the hallway, the lookouts being for COs and stuff.
                    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

                      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                        Well, I was about to say the same as Paleobird already mentioned: seems you hang around bad neigourhoods or they have extended themselves to where you live. Specially a tattoo place has to be respectable, you don't want drunks to mess around with your picture and your health. Go to some that is in a good area, by apointment only, no random customers or curious "under the influence" from street. More expensive, but this is something you get for long time if not for ever after. And artists working in those tend to be higher level too...

                          people should learn how to keep their mouths shut. don't start shit with strangers. how many times do you see some pencil-necked twerp road raging, or talking trash to total strangers? you never know who you are talking to nowadays. the young dude probably should have walked away instead of arguing about chicken nuggets. sounds like he had a brain injury to begin with.

                            Ha ha. I went to the best shop in town and to the best artist in that shop. Downtown Santa Barbara. Rough neighborhood where all the drunks are rich loser guys with nothing better to do with their lives. Except for the fight, the experience was extremely positive, intimate and almost mystical.

                                Well, it's not finished yet. Here's one side that I think is mostly finished on my horribly swollen ankle. He did the flower, not the other stuff.

                                Here's the side that shows the coverup.

                                I am a fan of traditional tattoos.

                                I see this as part of my whole primal improvement plan. The weight loss thing went as far as it went. The health thing is pretty much as good as it'll get. Lifting weights is settled in and progress will be slow and steady from here on out. The next item on my agenda was to fix the tattoo mistakes I made in my 20s.

                                About a month ago I fixed my bad shoulder tattoo. This is Squeaky, my female plumhead parakeet.
