When he walked straight into me with plenty of room (10 meters) and no one else was walking there besides me and my girlfriend that does constitute as hitting me first. The impact was so strong that we both fell to the ground.
When I regained my composure I looked up and saw his head there so bamm. The only reason why he didn't get it worse was because my girlfriend was yelling at him and pulling me away.

How often does it happen? Rarely. You were just in the wrong place at the wrong time near the wrong Korean.

What another poster said is true. Alcohol is almost always involved. I would also add to that, the time of night. This sort of thing never happens at 2:00pm in the afternoon.


Basically, avoid areas where idle korean males gather to drink alcohol or sit around.

Avoid backstreets at 3am.

Avoid the vicinity of bars after midnight.


Avoid korean hofs.

Ah, did I mention, avoid korean hofs?

Yes it happened to me. I was walking with my girlfriend (and for all my fans she was 21 years old) in Jeju and some dude just walks right into me. No one else was around and there was plenty of room. I noticed that when he was moving toward me slightly I thought it was strange so I moved a little bit. Next thing I know he plowed right into me So I took my hand and smashed him in the back of the head. My girlfriend started yelling at him. He gave me a dirty look and walked away. What a weirdo!


What is "smashed" exactly?

Did you actually punch him with a closed fist?

Slap his head with your open palm?

Shove his head?

Or is this a codeword for swiped at him threateningly without landing, unbeknownst to him?


Just checking. Because there are so many armchair cowboys who involuntarily exagerrate every time they draw breath.

How much do you weigh that you can be knocked to the ground when someone walks into you? 50kg?

In this world, where the game is played with loaded dice, a man must have a temper of iron, with armor proof to the blows of fate, and weapons to make his way against men.

Life is one long battle; we have to fight at every step; and Voltaire very rightly says that if we succeed, it is at the point of a sword, and that we die with the weapon in our hand.


-A Schopenhauer

You need to learn balance.

And I don't do pounds.

Good, so you won't be confused when you start going to the gym. Come one, build up some muscles. Next guy who plows into you, he'll break bones against your chest...

Or do what a friend did...He saw it coming and so he took a quick sidestep just as the guy was about to shoulder check him. The guy landed flat on his face and busted it up against the sidewalk.

I AM MAXIMUS MERIDAS, GENERAL OF THE FELIX REGIMENT OF THE TEACHER ARMY ROK AND SERVANT TO THE EMPEROR 12AX7-AURELIUS!

I AM BOYFRIEND TO AN EMBARRASSED KGAL AND FRIEND TO A PUNCH DRUNK AND LANDLORD TO A MURDERED TEACHER'S WORLD -- AND I WILL HAVE MY VENGEANCE!




The Praetorian apologists of Dave's ESL cafe Archers tense their bows -- ready to kill
the defiant slave poster....

But something extraordinary stops them. Almost as one
being the other posters in the crowd roar with applause -- they leap to their feet and
thrust their thumbs up! They cheer and stomp their approval of Maximus.

The MODS look around at the people of DAVES esl cafe, amazed.

He finally plasters on a benevolent smile and thrusts his thumb up! The Praetorians lower their bows.

And the crowd cheers. Never in the long, long history of the Colosseum forums have they ever seen such a thing.

Maximus leads his Kgal out of the arena.
