I mean they can fight. This is their terminology, i.e., "You think that staff can bang?" "Naw, he's sweet. I'll tear his white ass up."

What makes you think any of them would be able to bite you anyway?
When I was an undergrad there was this 100 pound sophmore freak that would get shitfaced off of vodka and start biting me. I would pick her up and throw her onto a couch/bed. She would bounce up like in about 2 seconds and then attack me again. The cycle went on and on. It happened every time she got shitfaced off of vodka. Not once did any of her bites phase me. If her bites couldn't phase me then there is no way a 5 year old's bite would. Well, the ear might be vulnerable. But if you are wearing a cup you will be ok.
her bites didnt phase you cuz she was a drunk ***** who wasnt biting you hard. A 5 year old could rip a chunk from your skin if he really wanted too

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

most posters failed to notice that you get a cup. This makes you practically invincible to them. The only thing I can see them doing is having 10 or so go for your legs and then a 2nd wave crawls on over them to get at your torso, etc. Once they have your whole body pinned (which would require at least 30 dogpiled on ya), the only way to get you unconscious would be if the fattest one got a clear jump on your face/throat from the height of another little kid pyramid.

I'm going with 100+

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

i think 100 is way too high. what happens when you have 40 to go and there are 60 of them sprawled on the floor? it's a basketball court, not a football field, you're gonna sprain an ankle stepping on a torso or crack your head after slipping on a huge pool of blood. then you have 1500 pounds of little kid smothering you.

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

The answer is 1, my daughter is that age and has been trained by hours of watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers combined with WWE wrestling.

A hit in the balls followed by a leap from the arm of the settee is generally enough.

The answer is also 1 cos the first five year old you hit will go running to their mam/dad and tell, either will come out and give you a good pasting.

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

I am 99% sure I could take on atleast 30.
This accounts for getting tired.

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

I think 100 is underestimating even after a day of training, they have weight of numbers but no skill and no real power in punches, biting is the only real weopon they have and as long as you stay mobile you would be fine, only so many can get at you at once.

But you also have to understand that doing this would get very tiring very fast. And if they get you on the ground somehow and start jumping on your head and neck.. you're done.

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

I dont see how they would get you on the ground unless you tripped. At 5 you can pick one up and throw them into the group push them over easy I see it taking more than a 100 to get you unconcious, even if they got you down getting up would be easier than given credit for.

If you said 7-8 year olds I would revise it down a lot but at five I think its lots.

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

Hmm, that's true... the only way I could see them getting you on the ground is if you got very tired and they all started jumping on you, running at you, and pulling you down. The thing is I don't know how long it would take me to get that tired, since I have never tried killing a swarming pack of 5 y/o. So I conclude that the real answer is no one knows.
Although I'm guessing I could estimate between 30 - 200

They have to short enough to kick them in the head as they approach you.

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

dude, if there are 60 little broken bodies littered around a basketball court and you are also having to trample kids as you move around, you WILL trip. what's so hard about this?

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

If you trip though and there are 60 bodies around the 40+ are going to be tripping as well allowing you to get up easy.

Its still a lot more than 100 in my opinion.

Thinking about my daughters school they all line up ready to go in 180 kids aged 5-8 they dont take up as much room as you might think, and I reckon I could take all of them.

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

Is there some type of custodian to clear the kids as they get knocked out or do they just lie there, unconcious?

If it's A, my answer's all of them.

If it's B, I think I can take ~70, maybe more. I'll have a definitive answer after I pick a fight at the local preschool this morning.

Are they allowed to touch the wall? If not, you could just bounce them off the wall and keep going. Plus, they would be relatively stacked up around the edges of the room, helping with the trip hazard.

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

A couple of things to consider:

* 5 year olds are going to be afraid of you...regardless of how many of them there are. Once you hurt one or two of them pretty badly, then they are terrified of you. It would be them running from you, not the other way around. (EDIT --- Okay, I just read the rules again, but still...)

* For 99+% of the population it would be EXTREMELY difficult (psychologically) to hurt a five year old that bad. The first one would be horrible, the second would be worse. By ten, you'd probably be okay with it

* Why are people wanting to avoid the herd of kids that will inevitably form (think of a 5 year old soccer game, just one clump of kids regardless of how much training they have)? Run into it knocking many over and knocking their heads together.

* Remember that their number is always diminishing. So, for example, for those saying 100 --- the question isn't whether 100 kids could take you when you get tired. The question is whether (maybe) 50 could. You drop them at a faster rate than you tire. It would take SO little effort to incapacitate them.

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

I think the answer here is as many as you could fit in the gym. The limiting factor is stamina. There's only so long you can go around punching little kids before you're gonna get tired and I think that's what's going to set your number.

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

I'd say 20ish. My method would be running up to the scrawniest one; snapping their neck and killing them. It would give the others something to think about.

Good thread.

EDIT: Oops missed this.

The kids are motivated enough to not get scared, regardless of the bloodshed. Even the very last one will give it his/her best to take you down.
I'm still snapping necks though, not gonna waste my time with punching, they are low to the ground, I'll just run up, grab the top of their heads and twist, which would be easier then throwing them around,--a best defense is a good offense.

Kill the 5 yr olds, they can't come back and attack.

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

dude, once they go unconscious, they're "out" so it's not like they wake up and start rushing you again. so there's no need to snap necks to take em out.


now, if a man just wants to snap necks, then who am I to criticize?

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

I'm snapping necks. Let word get out to the other 5 yr olds. Also I seriously think snapping necks is less abuse to yourself then hitting the kids. Which will help you hurt more kids in the long run. Grab and twist man, grab and twist.

Probably a couple of them would work their way behind you and get on the ground and like 7 or 8 of them would bull-rush you from the front forcing you to trip. Once you're on the ground, 4 or 5 of them would be responsible for securing each arm and leg, and the remaining ones would just stomp on your head until you are unconscious.
you couldn't get a group of 5 year-olds to work together that cohesively with a month of training, much less a single day. and i highly doubt they would come up with such tactics on their own, in the heat of battle, and be able to get themselves organized to pull it off.

i honestly think the main limiting fatcor is the adult's stamina. it takes energy to punch, kick, throw, and run. how many 5 year-olds you can take out is directly related to what kind of shape you're in. as for myself, i'll say 50. and i think that would be a bit of a challenge.

wait, can we bash them against the walls? if so i'll bring my number up to at least 60, and maybe even 75.
