I dreamt, last night, that I was Batman. And there was some strange shit, like me playing soccer with some kids. But near the end, I was Bruce Wayne and at home, and there was a knock on the door. I opened it, and there were some heavies, clearly looking to start shit. So I threw the door wide and kicked at the lead one.
. To death. Lacy and I were talking about what we would do in the presence of a knife-wielding maniac.
Lacy's take was fairly straightforward. Rush him. Lacy's screennames have evoked superheroes such as Wonder Woman, so... it's not unexpected.
] Lacy: I dunno man, I think in situations like that people should be able to do something.
] Lacy: One man with a knife...
] Lacy: versus fifty or so passengers?
] Lacy: I mean, c'mon.
] EGo: Sure, I'd like to think I'd do something...
] EGo: But realistically, I lack the bravery.
] Lacy: I dunno, have you ever been in a situation anything like that?
] EGo: No.
] Lacy: Even just having to run and get help for any reason?
] EGo: I've watched a truck go amok on the highway.
] EGo: And I ran up and helped the people in the cars he hit.
] EGo: But that's entirely different.
] EGo: That is a relatively calm situation wherein I am not personally threatened.
] Lacy: What do you mean?
] Lacy: I think it's similiar.
] EGo: I mean the truck had gone past, wrecking these cars.
] EGo: By the time I got to them, it's not like the big rig is going to pull a U-turn and come back.
] Lacy: True.
] Lacy: When was this?
] EGo: When I worke? at BMS.
] EGo: Some guys and I went down Rt.1 a bit for lunch.
] EGo: We walked out of the place and some of us started to smoke, so we were standing there when there was a crash
] EGo: We look over to the highway, and a truck had slammed into a car.
] EGo: And kept going...
] EGo: Into other cars.
] EGo: I think eventually he scraped against the concrete barrier to a stop.
] EGo: He was asleep.
] Lacy: Jesus.
] Lacy: DRINK MOAR CALFINEE
] EGo: No one was seriously hurt.
] EGo: Thankfully.
] Lacy: Yes.
] EGo: Cars were well smashed, though.
] Lacy: But still--you booked it out to see if people needed help.
] EGo: Yep, got the 911 on it, too.
] Lacy: So, still.
] Lacy: Not the same as stopping someone with a knife, but good enough.
] EGo: I would run and get help, but faced with a knife guy...
] EGo: I'd run and get others, probably.
] Lacy: What if I was there and I tried to stop him?
] Lacy: I bet you'd help.
] EGo: Maybe if someone else rushed him first, I'd help, but...
] EGo: See, I was typing that.
] EGo: But being the first to jump in there, not so much.
] Lacy: Yeah. Exactly.
] Lacy: Then you can be hero by proxy.
] EGo: Yay, proxy.
