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

i got taken down by 5 10 year olds at the st. patricks day parade in south boston.... 1 was on my back, 2 were in front kicking each one of my shins, and 2 were in back kicking each one ofmy ass cheeks... i was also drunk. not my defining moment.

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

Ive worked as a summer camp counselor with 5-11 year olds and Ive had many of battles against them. They can put a hurting on ya when they work together and attack from all fronts. Just a kick in the shin or knee causes some bad pain.
You have to use one hand to protect below the belt,so thats a disadvantage. And the training will show them how to wrap up legs quick and take you down to there height, where the real battle begins. A quick jumping roundhouse kick will drop the first 2 to reach me, then two hard punches will take another 2 down. By then you will probably have one on your back if you stay still. Its hard to sling the little punks off your back and it will slow you down.
With sufficient room to run I would have to go with 14. Im pretty athletic and could jump over them, and almost fly around the room kicking them in the head. But Im not strong enough to keep fighting once they get a hold of me and my endurance wears down. Over/under 13.5
Id bet over cuz of my speed.

who the hell thought of this?

EDIT: changing that to +/- 16.5 after reading a few others ideas.

you're overlooking some important things:

1) you get to wear a cup

2) i'm sure you weren't trying to take those kids out...put in the op's proposed scenario, you would fight much harder and be able to ignore more pain.

3) for all but the the weakest/smallest adults, your number is too low.

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

I havent read all of the posts but Im pretty sure one thing that people forget about, and what virtually ensures that any one human being could not take on more than, lets say, 20 five year olds, is BITING. These kids will bite like zombies and will eat you alive.

Personally I think a better question to ask would be, how many cancer patients could you take on, under the given circumstance that should the cancer patients win, their cancer would be cured (eliminates the fear factor of your 5 yr old question)

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

About 20, maybe 12 if all given a sugary drink and chocolate first, and suitably excited by a promise to be taken to toysrus if they can beat up the bad guy.

But they wouldn't stop when you're unconscious. You'd die.

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

Lets look at the advantages an adult has.
1) Speed
2) Strenght
3) Intelligence
4) Height
Based on this i think i could grab oneby the feetand swing him around my head bashing the other kids. Once they get too close i could then run and put distance between myself and them and then do it again. Based on this strategy I'd wager about 35

You think someone can break the record for number of 5 year olds taken at once?

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

if it was me...[censored] unconsciousness...death would be easier....I think the problem is more fatigue from breaking all their necks. The question should really be how many tiny necks can u break before you pass out.

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

Gentlemen, you are clearly overestimating your endurance levels.

The idiots thinking they can do their fancy karate kicks and punches will quickly be trampled to death from loss of balance if not fatigue.

The most sensible attack would be powerful knee strikes to the head as Jaybee70 mentioned. But to ward off fatigue, one would have to use psychological warfare as well. If you could concentrate on mangling one child as an example(repeated knee strikes causing their head to cave in with lots of blood) the others would begin to panic as five year olds are want to do seeing such things. Fleeing towards the closest exit, you would have easy pickings and be able to grab them and destroy them one by one.

Remember, the key is not to lose your balance.
