Fair fight? I never want to be in a fair fight, I always want the edge. That's the whole point. You bring a knife to a gun fight, sucks to be you.

There is no value in fighting with honor or fighting fair. Military strategists will laugh in your face for even mentioning a fair fight. You want the most unfair fight possible

The concept of fair fighting comes from the medieval code of chivalry which was 99% about how to conduct yourself in war, and very little about how to deal with women. It only works if both sides adhere to the code. Otherwise you're putting yourself at a disadvantage for no reason

The core idea of fair fight is imo about not having anyone salty trying to backstab/poison afterwards or even escalating into something bigger like the popular family feuds. You create rules everyone accepts to avoid bigger loses on both sides.

If you're fighting for fun you want it to be as fair as possible (see: boxing, martial arts). If you're fighting for real, fuck that shit.

I can't even drive this point home to my gaming friends. I love multiplayer strategy games (There's no greater thrill than hunting human prey) and I'm always telling my friends that fair fights are for suckers. Yet one insists on trying to fight 2v2s and then gets pissed when it turns out there really were 4 of them.

Fair fight?

Three men came into his house armed (poorly) to rob him, after robbing his garage earlier that day. That's not just thievery, that is blatant disrespect.

Your kid was disrespectful, brazen, and fucking stupid. He had no honor.

after robbing his garage earlier that day.

Now that's a detail I didn't know.

If my garage gets burglarized, I'm readying one gun, cleaning a second, and then cleaning the first when the second is done.

I'm not sure if you're agreeing with me or not here?

They invaded the kid's home, all three of them. That throws out any legitimacy to a plea for fairness. Fair? A planned one-on-one fight in a public place.

don't you understand? The robber wasn't going to try and kill the homeowners if he had the chance and take his weapon and use it against him. He was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time with a pair of brass knuckles. also, this proves that AR-15s are evil devices that only succeed in killing innocents.
