let's say that some evil magical iguana wizard puts you in a cage with one other person. That other person is a younger version of your dad (mom if you are a pit gal). He is the same age as you. The only way to escape from that cage is to beat up the younger version of your parent. Would you be able to beat him up or would he kick your ass?

the 18 year old version of my dad would probably be able to kick my ass easily. he basically grew up outdoors and has that wild killer instinct that I lack. I'm also pretty out of shape but my dad was a dedicated soccer player and kinda buff, so I could probably last a few minutes in a fight against him before he would make me eat dirt.

ps: you cannot have sex with him or team up and overthrow the evil magical iguana lizard

I often wrestle with my dad for fun. He's strong but I'm stronger than him. (He's 57) I'm bigger/taller than he was.

But my dad was a alpha male in his prime. When he was 16, he violently kicked some 25 years old dude who said my grandfather was a pussy.
Need fashion advice?

Shit. I don't know really. I'd probably have him by a few inches in height, but I don't know about weight. He'd taken judo at that point, and I've taken tae kwon do, but neither of us got too far or likely remember very much. He'd probably have a bit more actual fighting experience, but I'd say it'd be pretty close. It would be interesting to see actually.

Well, no. My dad was quite the alcoholic at my age.

Not a chance.


My dad is, and has been since he was 14 6 foot 3...I'm barely 5 foot. Plus, he actually enjoyed sport so was/is much more fit than I am.

Nope.
Although I am a little taller and heavier than he was back then, probably a better fighter too (down to experience) he would kick my ass. He was a national level athlete at my age! He'd just wear me down and after about half an hour I'd be finished.

No. I'm a bit taller than Dad, but I can't grow a moustache worth a damn, and he had a pretty impressive one at my age.
#16
My dad was a football player in HS, I am a cross country runner...he weighed about 220 and I weigh about 140. He stopped playing in college so he might have lost some muscle by now but I think he could kick my ass.

I'm bigger than my dad. He took wrestling in high school, so he'd have a decent grappling game, but my jiu jitsu background should be able to neutralize that.

Eh i don't know, he probably had some weight on me.....and more fighting experience growing up in jamaica and all.....

I wouldn't go down so easily though.

#21
No, when my Dad was 18 he worked out everyday. Biked to work and back everyday (he was 20 miles from town). At 18 he'd be bigger, taller and stronger than I am. But, I dare say I could outrun him.

let's change the question: are you pro or antti niemi?
#23
I would... at my age he was more buff, but I have a lot more experience in fighting
#24
No. My dad was a beast when he was my age. Give me 7 years and the answer will change, as he will have broken his back at that point.
#26
My Dad's in the Weekend-Army thing... Forgotten the name. So he's probably got a bit more stamina.

But I've got more strength, drive and hatred than he has, so I'll be more inclined to kick his ass (he left me and my Mom when I was a newborn and then told me he never wanted to talk to me again when I was 11).

My dad had been in the army for 2 years at my age, kicking ass, meeting frank zappa (and other notable musicians i can't recall atm,) firing artillery, and drinking his brains out in Germany.

Why was he in the US army in Germany? Cuz society couldn't handle his shit back in the 80s and told him it was the army or jail.

I don't think I can compete, though I don't stand that much of a chance now, all my friends are pretty intimidated by my dad, especially before they know him.

I have that same killer instinct my Dad has. Of the two times we actually fought I swung a guitar at his head like a baseball bat and the other he came out with more blood on him that I did. Lets just say plastic is not tough when whole but is a strong substance for shrapnel.
#29
Well, when my dad was 18, he was a lumberjack, a softball world-record setter, and oh, the nation armwrestling champion, so, in all probability, he would ****ing destroy me in a fight. Now-a-days though, he's a pathetic alchoholic that lives in the "Glory days" and pisses the bed. Who's laughing now, Dad? WHO'S LAUGHING NOW?

My father was a puny, jerry-curled, loser at my age.

Someone has daddy issues. Have you always had a gay crush on your father whilst simultaniously wanting to kill him?
