I'm guessing there was some previous altercation that we missed.

Never take a knife to a shovel fight.
 
2014-01-03 05:14:45 AM
A shovel is really just a blunt glaive. I wouldn't want to the be the knife guy in that fight.

You're supposed to use the shovel AFTER the stabbing part, duh!

I see you've played knifey-shovely before.

Nice pole work from the shovel wielder, by the way. He hits with the blade, not the flat. He makes an unsuccessful, but tactically sound, snap at the knife wielder's face. He uses dirt to blind the guy.

It's a nice fight on his part. The knife guy's attacks are a comedy of errors. Only all the other cars on the road make me think this is real. If it was just him and van man I'd assume it was performance art.

Done in one. Last one out, hit the lights.

Could someone make a gif of the guy falling off the roof. That was the highpoint.

Cripes, getting hit with the flat must have hurt.

I laughed out loud.

Guy was lucky it wasn't sharpened, not that it matters very much at full swing.

Pretty scary crash though. Glad both of them walked away.

If those were my weapon choices. I'll take the shovel every time.

My thoughts exactly.
Knife guy jumping on top of the van was precious. Looked like a newborn foal trying to stand up.

Shovel guy looks like he practices, weapon defense with garden tools.

Lookagain. Looks like an edge hit to me. Somewhere on the collarbone. If they were on the same plane, it would be a brutal slam, but since Knife guy is on the berm and Shovel Guy's in the ditch, he catches it at the beginning of the arc.

Wait, I tell a lie. On the blown up version, I was watching smallscreen, that first hit might be a flat hit to the back or rib area.

My opinion of Shovel Guy is downgraded quite a bit.

Free Advice: If you must use an oar or spade to hit someone: use the edge. It cuts though the air faster that way and hits with more oomph.

My favorite thing is that this random driver comes up on the initial altercation, then follows along on the high-speed chase, just to get it all on film.  Then posts it on the Internet.
 
2014-01-03 08:49:39 AM
A couple things that I thought were funny:

At the beginning knife guy is out of his car and it is still moving fairly fast.  He has to run to catch up.

At one point during the showdown, knife guy pulls up his front leg and I thought he was about to go Mr. Miagi on shovel guy.

Wow, I didn't know it was possible for someone to overcompensate with a shovel.  That's so overcompensating, it should be in the UFC.

This probably played out like the rake fight in "Hobgoblins."

Liveleak. They generally are the fastest to post video clips, usually a day or more in advance of it hitting anything remotely mainstream.

Once the aggressor decided to fall off the roof of the minivan he should have called it a day.

After that performance, I don't think most people would be taking you to be as much of a serious threat as perhaps you wanted to portray.
