Would you win in a fight to the death against the person physically closest to you?

Nope, I'm 95 pounds while my dad is 250 pounds and over a foot taller than me. I wouldn't stand a chance.

Well, it's my 3.5 year old right now. Likely, I could win, but would rather shoot myself in the head than fight my own child to the death.

I could, but I wouldn't. The closest person is my mother.

My two year old is closest. I think he would beat me just because I couldn't harm him, even if he attacked me.

I would never want to even think about it, but Hubby is sitting next to me. He's bigger and stronger, but I can out maneuver him...

Well, I'm alone right now, but if we want to hop over a few rooms, my eleven year old brother is closer than anyone else.

I wouldn't win in a fight to the death against anyone - because I refuse to kill another human being

The only person anywhere near me for hours was the guy from upstairs who feeds the squirrels every day. He was sweeping the front porch. In the dark. I do not want to hurt this man. Besides, I think we might both just collapse if we tried to fight.

I said no only because she's my best friend. I'm, physically, far stronger and several different types of training which would guarantee I would win. However, I'd definitely let her win.

Reading this question with my 2-year-old on my lap, so there's no question who would win.

Without question. The fight is already won. Wait... You were telling us to kill the person closest to us right, Jenninerd? ????

I'd be glad to sock my asshole brother in the face! I never hit or fight him because I dont want to actually hurt him and get in trouble so he thinks he is stronger and can beat me up. He deserves to be punched in the face! Any volunteers?

I have never been in a physical altercation in my whole entire life, I have truly never hit anybody so I doubt the I would know how to fend for myself and that's probably not a good thing

It's the smarter half of my brain right now. I'd either let her win, or she'd trick me into letting her win and make me think it was my idea, either way I'm doomed and might as well just jump off the roof now and get it over with.
