Kurt sent me a link to a website that is, unfortunately, so burdened with traffic that it is currently down.
The website asks: how many five year olds could you take in a fight?
Now, this might seem rather morbid, but really it’s kind of an interesting question. The Kids will, presumably, use swarm techniques on you. Kids… everywhere. If the ‘fighting kids’ thing has you wigged out, consider instead the question: how many soft short robots could you take in a fight?
Average height of a five year old: 1 meter. (3 feet 3 inches)
Average weight of a five year old: 18 Kilograms (40 pounds)
Average armspan of a five year old: about 38.1 centimeters (15 inches)
The kids feel no fear in their attacks.
You have no moral standards that prevent you from fighting your hardest.
The swarm is made up of the average five year old.
Both you and the children are allowed to fight dirty
The fight starts with you surrounded completely by a sea of kids. The kids start three feet away from you.
The kids were not allowed to make strategies ahead of time.
So you tell me, how many five year olds would you be able to take in a fight? As the comments come together I think we’ll develop a pretty interesting conversation regarding methods, means, and strategies.
