Figured you guys would like this beat down
A friend of mine was a golden gloves out of Harrisburg PA... Fuck that... I saw him drop two assholes in college that talked shit and would not shut up. They just kept asking for it and finally they got what they asked for. Each one lasted about 10-15 seconds.

we had a family friend back in the mid 80's who boxed in the navy, was in WW2, my family used to eat at his house after church on sundays. anyway my brother and a friend of his both were seniors in high school talked him into getting the gloves out. he beat the brakes off them and he had to be in his 60's or 70's. Nicest gentleman you'd want to meet. made the best pound cakes too.

    Back when I was a teenager (late 70s) I had a set of 16oz gloves and we used to goof around on Sat nights, usually half intoxicated (drinking age was 18 not that it mattered), and wale on each other. There is only so much damage you are going to do with 16s on. One night on the tennis courts in Hinesville I got matched up with some guy nearly a foot shorter than me off of Ft. Stewart. Yea, he was a boxer, and I wasn't. My whole keep 'um at range and jab away thing didn't work... he got inside and one stacatto run up my abs and ribs and I had enough.

    i bought a set for my sons, they would invite their buddies over on the weekend and box, had to stop if after one got knocked out cold. figured the liability from someone getting hurt wasnt worth it.

    We used to box in highschool while drinking... I think we had 16's, but might have been 14's...

    We would generally just tap and jab each other doing a little sparring, that was the rules, and the other guys around would pull you apart if there were any big swings(upper cuts and hooks were off limits). One night a buddy and I were sparring and he popped me way to hard straight on in the face. I shrugged it off and all our other buddies told him to cool it off(I had been landing a bunch of little jabs to his ribs). He popped me again pretty hard in the face and after I shook it off I went after him and knocked him out cold with a big right hook. His body stiffened up and he flopped down like a fish. Nobody stopped me. They knew he deserved it. That kind of shit happened occasionally. After the fact he knew he was in the wrong...mostly after everybody explained it to him that he was in the wrong and deserved what he got.

    Were all surprisingly still tight friends to this day, 20+ years later.

    ...He popped me again pretty hard in the face and after I shook it off I went after him and knocked him out cold with a big right hook.

    One of our gang got into Golden Gloves when we were seniors in high school. I sparred with him and he could tell I'd been trained for defense so he talked me into joining. Then one of the lower brain power dudes of our crew joined. We'd box in his back yard and it was a decent scene. One day he picked on his little brother too hard and we told him to back off. So the dumbass told me to stop him. He hadn't noticed that I was a natural southpaw that spent most of my time as a righty, so I let him try to be the aggressor a while while I studied his tendencies. I set him up with a few stiff left hand jabs, then switched to southpaw and gave him an 85% three-shot combo. Cleaned his fucking clock. He didn't figure out till the next day what had happened.

    The dumbass's little brother became a very successful collegiate wrestler. He came home for holiday and gave me a call to stop by his dad's house for beers. Proceeded to unleash holy hell on his big brother. Literally mopped the floor with his face. Bloody mess. Thanked me for having his back all those years ago. What goes around... Glad I didn't have to wrestle him, he'd become a wicked beast.

    ive seen that shit happen more times than i can count
    ive even schooled a few dumb asses
    being the oldest guy (51) in a boxing gym , a few newbies thought 1 would be easy lol
    The reason he took this guy to school, is that he would haunt the gym, looking for easy or newbies, offer to "Just spar around" and beat the shit out of them. That's why it is titled "Bully". He lectured him, slapped the crap out of him, and landed some hard jabs, and swats. I am sure the guy went to another gym, after that, but I hope he learned his lesson. There is a longer video, that shows what lead up to "school day"

    It is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are oversensitive, and there's nothing worse than an oversensitive woman.

    My name is Rod. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife. When I retired a few years ago, it became necessary for Andrea to get a full-time job, along with her part-time job, both for extra income and for the health benefits that we needed. Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home from work.

    Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's Grille at the club, so eating out is not reasonable. I'm ready for some home-cooked grub when I hit that door. She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. But now it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner.

    I do what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.

    Another symptom of aging is complaining, I think. For example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. But, boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two, or even three days. That way, she won't have to rush so much. I also remind her that missing lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any (if you know what I mean). I like to think tact is one of my strong points.

    When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs more rest periods. She had to take a break when she was only half-finished mowing the yard. I try not to make a scene. I'm a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too.

    I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support my wife. I'm not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, Guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging wife because of this article, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. After all, we are put on this earth to help each other.

    NOTE: Rod, died suddenly on April 21st of a perforated rectum. The police report says he was found with a Calloway extra-long 50-inch Big Bertha Driver II golf club jammed up his rear end, with barely 5 inches of grip showing, and a sledge hammer laying nearby. His wife was arrested and charged with murder. The all-woman jury took only 10 minutes to find her Not Guilty, accepting her defence that Rod, somehow without looking, accidentally sat down on his golf club.

    If you have to axe!

    When I was in college I was working on a group project with two other engineering students. One a lower middle class white kid from a small PA steel/coal town (let's call him Redneck #2). The other was an Armenian who was raised in Cairo, now living in the US. The Armenian, who was a really nice guy, kind to everyone, and spoke English well but with a thicker accent, asked us sheepishly one day what the word "axe" meant.

    Redneck #1 (me): You mean like an axe that you chop a tree down with?
    Armenian: No, it's definitely something different.
    Redneck #1: Can you use it in a sentence?
    Armenian: Can I axe you a question?
    Redneck #1 (slaps forehead)
    Redneck #2: I've got this one. It's Ebonics - it's the way black people from cities talk. It's the way they say "ASK".
    Armenian: Are there other words like this? <worried he doesn't understand English>.
    Redneck #2: The short answer is yes....we'll discuss it over a beer later.

    It's the world we live in.
