Re: Another side question

I say never. Having the protection of a teammate to bail me out on the rare occasion I get in trouble is huge, well worth doubling the tykes, possibly tripling.

Hell, if I just fended off 75 rabid 5 year olds, you'd better believe I'm going to go WWF style on those last 25 just for giggles.

The cup certainly helps-but my knees/shins remain vulnerable so I'd say.....

I have to think I could knock out that many with just my fists/short kicks before they break my shins
are you made of glass? how hard do you think a 5 year-old could hit you? they'd be lucky to make bruises.
Yo my ex-girls son was 2 1/2 He poped my in the mouth busting my lip open.(we were playing of course) Dont entirely under estamate these little bastards.
That's because you let the kid get within striking reach of a part of your body that's soft and vulnerable. Have the kid punch you just as hard in the shin and he'd break his fist. Also, if you had punched the kid back even at half force he'd probably be dead. These kids are so weak, I'd say you can probably knock out a good 20 or 30 just in the first minute by zig-zagging through the crowd so they can't get a grip on you and grabbing random ones by the head to keep them still while you punch them in the face.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

The kids would suffer more from the presence of corpses than you would. At least you have the agility to avoid the corpses-these 5 year olds are so uncoordinated and can only take small steps so you have to assume most of them would trip over some corpses on their way to rush you. At that point, you could just step on their heads or kick them in the face. I might even think that it gets easier and easier to get these kids the more you've downed as you can adjust to the terrain better.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

You'd have to hunch over so low to actually tackle/barrel into them that you'd fall over the second one of the kids pushes you. A much better strategy would be the zig-zag and punch approach I mentioned earlier.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

A group of little kids were walking through my campus today. I could swear they were eyeing me out- I know it. I almost went medieval on their asses!

I'm thinking the best approach would be to rip the legs off one of the spindly ones and use the bloody legs like clubs.

You can't pull a leg off a kid... just swing the whole kid around.

I still can't believe people are discussing "hitting". It is very much more efficient to snap the little bastards necks.
I love the nech snapping idea.

Would probably be best to pick your moments though. Like say you have one not really in the group coming towards you. This would be a moment to neck snap..

Maybe afterwords you can toss the toddler into a small group of them to immobilize for a few moments. Perhaps even use the neck snapped as a weapon until another nech snapping oppertunity comes along.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

Typcially, when eating 5-year olds it's considered pour etiquette to rip the leg off before you eat it. As long as the leg is rigid, this shouldn't be a problem.

I think Patrick's strategy is best so far -- keeping up to speed on the perimeter picking off stragglers, mixed with sprints through the pack to break them up and delivering knees to faces.
Excuse me. This was my strategy. Except that it calls for kicks rather than knees.

I think the number is a lot less than people think, and definitely less than 30.
I agree. I heard about an 800 pound tiger getting killed by a pack of 30-40 wild dogs. I think the five year olds would have you on the ground pretty quick and that's the ballgame.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

"If I somehow get knocked on the ground, what is the worst thing they could do?"

Sit all over you pinning you down, then sit on your throat. They could certainly stop you getting back up and claim a Judo victory.

Some thoughts: I think the best way to imagine this is Zombie five-year olds. Zombies don't get frightened and are willing to take as many hits as they can before being incapacitated.

If you did it on a bouncy castle (that's what a Moonwalk is, right?) you really wouldn;t be able to take many. Those things are fairly enclosed, but more importanly you would absolutely not be able to keep your balance for very long when they threw themselves at you.

I'm taking the under on this, assuming the over/under is around 30. If a large mass of five year olds charges into your legs, it'll knock you over. If they're normal stupid frightened five year olds, its much more, but that's not hat I understand the problem to be.

I don;t think the zig-zag through the crowd would work; you'd lose momentum as more and more tried to grab your legs and you'd eventually go down.

and, suppose you could pick any weapon, but each kid gets the same weapon. what would you choose (if anything)? I would take a 35-pound spiked elongated mace or a 45-pound broadsword.
the problem with heavy weapons is that they will tire you out swinging them, even if you are stronger-than-average. sure, the kids won't be able to lift the heavy weapons, but you've only got a limited number of swings in you, stamina-wise.

i'd take a nice aluminum baseball bat. sure, the kids will be able to lift it, but there's no way they have the strength to swing it hard enough to hurt you. and don't say they could all team up, because only a few kids can all hold it at the same time, and even then their swing would be terribly uncoordinated and weak. you could just stand there and play tee-ball with their heads all day, using the occasional kicks, etc., to deal with some of them.
I've been thinking about this, and my weapon of choice would definitely be a chipper/shredder. It would get slippery, but I'm thinking I could chuck a few of the kids in there and then "aim" the small shards of flesh and bone at the eyes of the other children, blinding them. Rinse and repeat.

The problem here is that there's not just going to be one of these - all the kids will each have their own too. So you'll have 100 chipper/shredders. Actually, this might be to your advantage, as it would inhibit any sort of massive herd if they were scattered about the playing field and you could potentially arrange them in such a way to give you a territory advantage where you could force them to come at you one or a few at a time.

I guess I'm just old-school. I'll take no weapon or one that would essentially boil down to no weapon.
