I threw a couple punches with my brothers when we were young. I was younger and smaller, so it wasn't much of a fight!

You reach out to hurt me.... There are no rules or morals. You will regret it I guarantee it.

I'm no pacifist, but words work better than fists.

In some cases, yes. Although, words don't always work. Words don't work against the ignorant or the corrupt.

Yes and I don't recommend it. There are other ways to solve things.

Won some, lost some. Don't care for it at all anymore. Doesn't feel right.

Something about it all, like we shouldn't do it or something. Like how a lot of people can't punch in a dream. Ah, anyway that's just my random thoughts on the subject.

Man, I thought I was the only one with those dreams. So frustrating.

Actually I manage to beat someone crazy in a dream who tried to pull a weapon in someone nearby. So I doubt that rule about punching in dreams holds true…

I got beat up in school a few times, but never threw a punch back, so I'd say no.

Oh, wait, are we counting sibling fights? Then yes! My sister and I didn't punch, we slapped, kicked, bit and pulled hair.

When I was younger...I've gotten to shoving and shit talking as an adult, but haven't needed to swing in years.

No. I'll only fight in self defense and no one has had a reason to fight me.

Almost everyday when I was in school then I was a bouncer at some pretty seedy bars. Problem now days is when you fight in school they call the police

it was quite comical actually. I have bad aim, and 95% it missed her and would hit the wall LOL

My last fist fight was in 9th grade. I remember one in eighth grade and a couple in elementary. After the one in 9th grade my mom made it extremely clear that fighting was unacceptable unless my life was in danger.

Almost. I was physically held back. Although, if I wasn't held back, I probably only would have gotten a punch in...

A very few, BS'd my way past many more. Put on the gloves with a heavyweight Golden Gloves contender from California once--landed 5 quick jabs before waking up against the side of the ring.

That's one way of looking at it I guess. I saw it more as standing up for what one believes in/having a purpose and seeing it through. I'm not advocating violence, but I think many youths lack ambition.

Every high school has fist fights, some almost daily. I have been in fist fights however they are usually self defence.
