My reply — Yes, 45 seconds. Or two minutes. Or four minutes. At any rate, I’ve been in fights, and even been literally interrogated afterward re: what happened. When I was told how long in time it actually lasted, I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. Time is DISTORTED COMPLETELY during a fight. And I sure as HELL don’t recall whether my “nose was pinched” or a hand was on this or that part of my body… all I knew was that my head was being SLAMMED and then CRUSHED into a strong steel gate, to the point I was seeing stars. So to me, in my somewhat diverse experience in life overall, must say: That is NO ARGUMENT. Unless you’ve been held at gunpoint by criminals and mugged MORE THAN ONCE and gotten BEAT-DOWN by 16 or more people, then you will never understand what that does to you, and though I can laugh the next day or two, and deal with black eyes and bruises and wounds for a few weeks/months and just say, “Hey, that’s life”… not everyone is like that… Life isn’t always fair – in fact I would say it is NEVER fair. FAIR is what I will now call a FAIRY tale… IT’S LIKE SANTA CLAUSE!!!!! To riot and kill each other and hate each other over SANTA CLAUSE is just SO childish I …. am just going to stop typing.
