Liam Neeson, IRL and the movies, throat punching his way through life.
 
2012-10-05 02:44:54 PM
After that the kid was Taken 2 detention
 
2012-10-05 03:13:59 PM
He is a very dark man, with a particular set of skills.
 
2012-10-05 03:16:09 PM
I highly doubt that.
 
2012-10-05 03:21:38 PM
In Ireland in the 1970s, the only reprimand a teacher could get for punching a student would be for not following up the jab.
 
2012-10-05 04:38:15 PM
Gosh, what are the odds that a former teenage boxing champion would punch out a wiseass teenager?
 
2012-10-05 04:39:08 PM
Yeah, but he was a kindergarten teacher.

New Rule: From now on, all of Liam Neeson's movies must be titled,
"I'm Going to Hunt You Down and Kill You."

Liam Neeson may have my favorite career arc of any actor. He stared out as sort of the movie equivalent of a Shakespearean actor, Schidler's List/Ethan Frome type stuff to let your filmography professor know how refined you are.

Then he basically had a mid-life crisis or just got too old for this shiat, decided to have fun instead, and signed up with George Lucas. And he's been having a ball doing nothing but stunt-work and scowling ever since. Including having a shattered-glass-fueled fist-fight with a medieval European direwolf that magically teleported to Alaska for some reason.

Basically, I hope I enjoy myself as much as he does when I'm old and tired of my current job.

Knife? no, he just called him a dick.

But Liam is a bad ass. He used to be a boxer and was pretty good, for a white guy.

And he used to box, so that probably A. took the kid completely by surprise and B. hurt like MF-er. And good on him for doing it. I bet that little punk thinks twice about getting all macho and bullying from that moment until the day he dies.

Not really. He started out by spending about ten years doing supporting roles and stuff like Darkman. Then he hit his high drama period.

A normal conversation at my house:

Me: Honey, the new Liam Neeson movie is out today.

Honey: Which one is that?

Me: Liam Neeson Punches Stuff Again.

Honey: Wasn't that out a few months ago?

Me: No, no, that was Liam Neeson Punches Wolves.

Honey: He didn't punch anything in Batman, right?

Me: Nah, but he still kicked ass. Mmm, Liam Neeson in a suit...

Honey: In the mood, babe?

Me: Oooooooh, yeah.

Every school should have the designated alpha male "bad cop" who's allowed to pop a fresh one on the kids who get out of line.

(csb) My parents taught in an elementary school where legend had it that my dad, a couple of the other older male teachers, and the principal were grandfathered out of the no-corporal-punishment rule because they'd been in the war. Worked for me. By all rights my nerdy scrawny asthmatic ass should've been a given for weekly ass-kickings but nobody started any shiat until I moved up to middle school. (/csb)

From Wikipedia:

At age nine, Neeson began boxing lessons at the All Saints Youth Club, and later became Ulster amateur senior boxing champion.[

Also:

Neeson was enrolled in 1971 as a physics and computer science undergraduate student at Queen's University Belfast in Belfast, Northern Ireland, before leaving to work for the Guinness Brewery. 

I need to have a beer with Mr. Neeson.

He was sword fighting in Rob Roy way before Star Wars and all that other shiat.

I don't know if i'd call him a 'hero' without more information... For all we know, he did something to the kid which warranted a knife being pulled on him, then he additionally punched the kid out.

High school teacher here...been teaching for 11 years now, and have taken three knives off students. Never had to punch them in the face to get them either. Not trying to jinx myself here though...

My personal favorite was off a 6' 4", 230 lbs+ Mexican gang-banger that went by the name "Kilo" who had asked me at one time, "Hey Mr...what would you do if I socked you in the face some day?" I told him I'd defend myself, and gave him a look that made sure he never questioned me again. Saw him the other day...he's in his mid 20's now...cusses like a drunken sailor, but said he missed me.

My senior year of HS, I had an English teacher who... God, I still adore this lady. She was one of those that worked your ass hard, didn't give a shiat about you if you didn't try, but if you did... she was awesome. One of those that you hated until the light went on, and then you loved her, no matter how hard she was pushing you. Tiny older lady. And I do mean tiny. Most of us were bigger than her.

One day, some guy busted into our class with a switchblade. Started screaming at her. Apparently, he hadn't done any work, so she warned him - and he kept up with it, so she shrugged and flunked him, and her report on his behavior (drugs, other stuff as well) meant that he was expelled for a while and made to repeat the year. He showed up with the knife right after he got the news. This was actually really unexpected. It was a very well-off town, and "you screw up and I'll take your Lexus" usually worked if a kid's parents found out anything bad. Lots of CEOs' kids.

This little old lady stands up, orders everyone out into the hallway, grabs the guy by the shirt, throws him towards the other side of the room, and then runs and LOCKS HERSELF IN with him. (Yes, locked in. I don't know why. For a rich town, it was an OLD building, and had a lot of weird things like that.)

The girls ran for the principal's office, and the guys stayed behind trying to get her to open the door. All they heard was the guy cussing up a blue streak and a lot of banging noises. When we got back with security and the door was unlocked, he was sitting on the floor, looking busted up and freaked out, and she was sitting at her desk with the switchblade out. Nobody knows exactly what happened, nobody could get her to say anything about it, and the dude just kinda vanished after that.

She got exactly zero crap from anyone for the rest of the year, and from what I heard, pretty much ever after that. I talked to her after graduating, and she said the story had snowballed into "she killed a kid for a bad paper", which she was VERY pleased with.
