Wow, you VTGs sure are babies. Maybe you should consider that a punch in the face isn't always reason to retaliate, but to make sure you don't get punched again.
Grow up.

I'm so confused as to what a VTG is... But, I'll throw in my two cents

People are strange creatures. You and your friend are going about the way things have always been, and finally you say the same thing you've said two hundred times in a negative fashion about whatever aspect of their psyche you're poking "good clean fun" at...

And they snap.

They snap, because they've never told you that it affects them everytime you say that. They snap because once you said it, others in your cliche of friends have probably said the same thing. Maybe you're not even the original person who came up with this insult, this "aspect" that is to be mocked.

I've been on both sides, mocker/mockee. I've been hit in the jaw because I pushed someone to far, did I hit back? No. They are my friend and if they are acting in such a dramatic fashion there's reason that must be found out.

I've been hit in the jaw because someone was being aggressive and attacking me. Did I hit back? Yes. They weren't coming after me because I had pushed jokingly to far, they're attacking me for whatever other reason.


Huge difference, if you think that Self Defense is "protecting" yourself from your friend who snapped and hit you once in a sociology class. Thats not so good of a definition, unless he kept coming.

Are you (mike) asking if you could have done better in general or for your rep? If after he sat down you went at him, I would have been on his side.

Which hurts worse, getting punched or getting mocked ?




Initially getting punched would hurt more,but the pain goes away eventually. The same with getting mocked I suppose.

phoenix,
A VTG(virtual tough guy)is smoeone whos posts make them seem ultra tough. I am naturally ultra ultra tough and completely undefeatable so I have no reason to post such nonsense and if you don't like it I'll beat up your whole dojo with one arm tied behind my back.

I was not implying that he should do that, I was only implying if it goes to dier extremes, like a fight that was unexpected. Sorry if i came across to viloently.
