cyber_slacker: My first job ever was teaching riflery at a camp for intellectually handicapped adults when I was 16.

You don't know how fast you can run until you hear a shot go off while standing near a group of intellectually hadicapped adults.


so you were teaching republicans?

Brave: Took part in a Fark tipping thread.

Doubly Brave: Took part in a Fark pizza thread.

Bravest of all: Visited the politics tab (granted it was for only a moment, back in 2009, but it still happened)

Stood between a hysterically crying woman and the big guy she was arguing with in a local park- right after I started dialing 911 for her I noticed he was holding a pistol. It turned out he was a farking ATF agent and the gun was intended for her dog that had been running loose and menacing his kid, but until that all got straightened out I was pretty sure I'd walked into the situation that was going to get me killed.

I was going to say something, but that shut me down. That is the bravest thing I can imagine.

You have incredible strength.


Dunno, plugs aren't that heavy.

Acharne: I once started a conversation with a Hell's Angels member...
...while both of us were standing at urinals. He didn't speak English so I had to speak to him in French.


Needless to say he was really, really surprised anyone would do that. I welcomed him to my hometown and hoped him a healthy visit.


They're not that bad. Most of those dudes are pretty friendly as long as you don't piss them off. Chatting one up at the urinal probably wasn't wise though.

Lots, but the ballsiest, least concern for my own safety are:

1)Climbed up on a flipped-over car hanging off a cliff over a lake to look for the driver. In the middle of the night.

2) Grabbed a 100lb pit bull in a headlock so he couldn't pick up a terrier he had in his teeth and shake it 'til it's neck snapped.

3) Stopped a mugging, three guys beating up one smaller guy, and one subway groper by literally stepping in between.

Well, once I put on an Evel Knievel jumpsuit and a crash helmet. Then I walked over to a group of large balck men shooting dice in an alley and stood in the middle of them and yelled NI**ERS!

Belatryx: I called off a huge wedding 4 months before because I knew we were not ready to get married. Then I took the initiative to move out on my own on a crappy waitress salary to forge independence. Its either brave or stupid, I haven't decided yet.


Well, certainly brave. Kudos (coming from a guy who spent nearly a year in a tent in the woods-but had a job the whole time).

I broke up with a lying, cheating, bipolar Gemini woman after she demanded to know what kind of ring I bought for her.
/Best decision I ever made.
She refuses to get a job, lives at home with daddy (28 years old), and is constant source of drama and rumors in a group of people who no longer want anything to do with her silly ass.

So, yeah Belatryx, you are doing well! :-)

Bravest thing ever: Last year in Ybor City, some HUGE hispanic guy was breaking into my car and I confronted him. He punched me in the head but I forgot to fall down. Instead I plucked my car keys out of my pocket and asked him if he ever had a set of keys stuck in his neck.
He told me I could get shot for saying things like that. I asked him to produce a gun. He ran off, with his two friends.

/crazy white guys wins

Got to define your terms subby, objectively brave or subjectively brave?

Objectively it would probably be the time I walked into a 7-11 at 3am to get a cup of coffee and noticed the half dozens teenagers inexplicably present there and the gun in the waistband of one of them. Objectively it was probably a brave thing to decide that I wasn't going walk out to leave the clerk to his fate and that the kid with a the gun was going to get a faceful of hot coffee and coffeepot if his hand moved anywhere near the gun. (my presence apparently spooked the kids enough to take off on their own) But that didn't feel brave because It didn't feel much like a choice to me

Subjectively it was the car accident outside my apt in Chicago at 4am. Specifically the moment where I saw the badly hurt or dead taxi driver, and knew that if went over there and felt for a pulse, he was MY responsibility until the EMTs came and that if I farked up, in my mind It'd be the same as if I killed him. That was motherfarking TERRIFYING

My high school girlfriend broke up with me, got married out of spite to me. I would go over to her place when her husband was at work and fark her. One night he came home early. I grabbed my clothes, kicked out the window and dropped 8' into a ditch then ran naked around the block in case he was chasing me and when the coast was clear... got in my car and drove off. Wasn't brave but it was a Benny Hill moment.

this is why it should be legal to kill cops like this. this ahole pulled a gun in public because of a dog.

/dont get me wrong. I HATE DOGS. I HATE PEOPLE who let their dog run around. but still. give me a break.

Stand up in a court of law and plead "not guilty", then ask the judge the true nature of the charges filed against me. The sole charge was the lowest class of misdemeanor for a criminal traffic violation, but as there was absolutely no possibility of jail time for the charge I received no state-provided counsel either, and had to (successfully) argue my case on my own.

Wrote a novel, submitted it, got rejected, and wrote another one.

As a distant second, I shot a man who broke into my house when I was 12.

When I was 17 I carried my cousin down a hillside after he'd stepped on broken glass in a wading pool, nearly slicing his damn foot off. The neighbours barely got him to hospital on time. I spent the next two hours shivering on the porch, covered in blood. When my dad came home he freaked out, thinking I'd been stabbed. Then he gave me a beer...
 
2012-05-01 03:29:14 PM
I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane. but I chose to do that.

I can't think of a time I had to call on some deep bravery to control a situation out of my control.

/can't decide if that is good or bad
//well, a couple guys wanted to fight me in high school, I didn't back down, but sure as all wasn't throwing the first punch, they got broken up before i got punched in the neck. but see, that isn't even that brave

Farted while giving a eulogy. I was in a position where I couldn't adjust my stance and all eyes/ears were upon me. I couldn't do the one cheek grab and slight spread to diminish the sound without it also being unnoticed. So I let it go and by the grace of God, it was an SBD.

/Also saved a buddy's little sister from drowning in a quarry. She was getting tired swimming back and went under a few times, so I towed her the rest of the way. A few years later, yes she did.

LlamaGirl: Pulled the plug on my mom.


Weird feeling, isn't it? My brother had ALS for nine years. After a "major event" he was unconscious for a week and after sitting with him for a day, I knew he was gone. So we had a family meeting, my parents and me. It's just too much to ask a parent, so I volunteered.

Simultaneously the best and worst thing I've ever done.
 
2012-05-01 03:32:04 PM
The serious answer: Quit a job I despised, with no backup plan, 2 weeks prior to giving birth to my oldest.

The Farky answer: Wearing my brand new Colts fleece jacket through O'Hare right after SB41.

OldManDownDRoad: Complained at a company meeting that giving our execs a membership in a private club that excluded blacks was unfair to our black employees (to say the least). That wasn't brave, I just thought it was something they hadn't really considered. I thought they would do one of two things: refer it to a "committee" and hope it was forgotten, or actually give up those memberships.

I was wrong. There was a third option, and that was to make my life as miserable as possible so I'd quit. I did after six months of hell.

Still wasn't "brave" since I didn't know of the negative possibilities. But I'd do it again in a heartbeat.


Depending on how long ago that was, you really should have a long chat with a good employment lawyer about a situation that screams "classic retaliatory constructive discharge"

I wouldnt call it brave, but definitely the hardest thing I have ever done...

I placed my first child for adoption. I could have made it work if I really had wanted to, but I wasnt in a place in my life to where I wanted to be a single parent. I stay in contact with them and get pictures every so often. Best but toughest choice I have ever had to make.

Since "brave" is synonymous with "stupid" in ups, I offer my husband's story:

He once talked a female coworker into leaving her bad marriage.
Everyone already thought said female coworker was having an affair with him (she wasn't, but no one knew that).
Her husband was also coworker, and his superior.
He helped her move out of her house that day.
Husband was home at the time, and watched angrily as they moved furniture.

I'm still amazed that he didn't end up shot or fired or both. Eighty levels of Bad Idea™.

Kissed that guy I really wanted. 13 years together and today's our 8th year anniversary. Good timing, what!

And started kung fu, lo these 2 months ago, while being horribly unfit and fat. It still isn't easy, but one day...
