30. I've only been in one real fight in my life
and it was started because A) This guy had been being a pain in my ass for several months, B) I had been having insomnia and I was not myself at the time, and C) He crossed the line from verbal to physical. Nothing serious, just touching. Not even shoving. But I lost it and decked him. This was back in 8th grade, so he did the typical "You and me after school" posturing and I just said, "Whatever. I'm getting off at my bus stop. If you wanna walk home from there, be my guest."

Long story short, it was a weak-ass fight. Neither of us really knew what we were doing. He tried to grab me and swing me around and I managed to brace myself and send him flying instead so his wrist was sore for the next week. He got a lucky hit in and broke my nose, so that was a sore for a couple of days. That's about it.

Well, okay, there were plenty of 'flight' responses back when I lived near two college campuses in Orlando and didn't have my own car. But that was all me dodging stupid and/or drunk assholes in cars who didn't think to look where they were going.
