VERBALLY let people know what your boundaries are [and be reasonable about it], and if the line gets crossed, then it's time to pop off.

Having martial arts training doesn't make you a bad ass. It just makes you more effective at what you choose to do. Yeah, anyone could stand there and slug it out for 10 minutes and end up with a busted-up face, but having training means that you can take someone down to the ground and put them to sleep in ~ 7 seconds, w/o any bloodshed or broken bones, and then walk away and continue your day.

Tsk tsk. You know not of the DRUNK ARGUMENT FU. I guess that the Dunning-Kruger effect wasn't just Nazi Zionist propaganda after all.

No, I wholly picked up on your sarcasm in referring to my martial arts abilities. But instead of pointing it out and having you backtrack and claim sincerity, I just rolled with it. It's not worth it to start shit for no reason. Our time is finite, homie. And I don't need require your approval to have confidence in myself. I know my worth and abilities. Your judgment means nothing to me.

Quick, painless, efficient death is the only violence I'm down for.

Different people have different definitions of "violence," and varying levels of its acceptance. Some people think MMA is human cock-fighting, but will sit through 'Saving Private Ryan,' where people get shot to shit and blown to bits for 3 hours. To each their own, I suppose.

Lucem, you're right, it's silly to talk about what I would or wouldn't do IRL. Glad you brought it up. Maybe you should write an instrumental about it. I recommend a piano paired with a clarinet. With ambient sounds of you hanging from your shower curtain you ****ing failure.

Art Is Dead. Buy My ****.

No.
Self defence and sport is OK though.

Hunting humans for sport is fine. Got it.
