    How many 5 year olds ...

    http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...sb=9&o=14&vc=1

    Good drunken debate from a few nights ago.

    The question: How many 5 year-olds could you take on at once?

    The specifics:

    - You are in an enclosed area, roughly the size of a basketball court. There are no foreign objects.
    - You are not allowed to touch a wall.
    - When you are knocked unconscious, you lose. When they are all knocked unconscious, they lose. Once a kid is knocked unconscious, that kid is "out."
    - I (or someone else intent on seeing to it you fail) get to choose the kids from a pool that is twice the size of your magic number. The pool will be 50/50 in terms of gender and will have no discernable abnormalities in terms of demographics, other than they are all healthy Americans.
    - The kids receive one day of training from hand-to-hand combat experts who will train them specifically to team up to take down one adult. You will receive one hour of "counter-tactics" training.
    - There is no protective padding for any combatant other than the standard-issue cup.
    * The kids are motivated enough to not get scared, regardless of the bloodshed. Even the very last one will give it his/her best to take you down.

    I set my magic number at 30, but upon reflection, I think I could take on a few more. How many could you take on?
    I think I could take 40. What say you?

    Coombs could take them all out. He'd grab one of them by the ankles and use him as a weapon.

    Funny (in a strange way!) question.

    Since I get to wear an athletic supporter with a cup inside, the most important thing in all of this in my opinion, I could take on at least 50 of the buggers. Make it 8-year-olds and I think the number gets cut in half at least.

    Then again... the original "Home Alone" movie makes me wonder if I can take just one!

    I think the biggest factor is really fatigue. Taking out 50 little kids would leave most people pretty tired I think.

    Depends on how recently I had been to a Chuck E. Cheese.

    Whew, thank goodness! When I first read the title, I thought this was going to be another Jacko thread. Put me down for a baker's dozen....

    The thing that amazes me is the fact that there was 39 pages worth of replies on that other board. That's nuts.


    I think I could take out 40 to 50. Even though the kids get combat training, I can't see a 5 year old retaining that knowledge, let alone working together with other 5 year olds in order to use that combat knowledge. The one hour of counter-tactics training would be more than enough to thwart any attacks from the kids. Since I would get to wear a cup, I think the only thing I would have to watch out for is a shot to the back of the knee that could knock me off-balance before other kids jump in.
