I Could Take 28 Kindergarteners in a Fight, How ‘Bout You?


Sometimes when you read about education issues all day you starting thinking things like, “How many 5-year olds could I beat up before they finally got the best of me?”

And sometimes there’s a resource out there that’ll give you the answer.

How Many Five Year Olds Could You Take in a Fight?

Here are the ground rules:

  • You are in an enclosed area roughly the size of a basketball court
  • There are no weapons or foreign objects
  • Everyone is wearing a cup (so no kicks to the groin)
  • The children are merciless and will show no fear
  • If a child is knocked unconscious, he is “out.” The same goes for you.

My favorite question:

During the fight, would you feel morally comfortable picking up a child and using him/her as a weapon to throw at other children?

28 for me! Feel free to take the quiz and post your results.

From their website:

Please Note: All our badges and widgets that you can install on your blog come with an extra link attached that you may remove if you wish. The extra link is the <a> tag located at the very bottom of the HTML code we provide. Removing it will not affect the widget in any way.

They’re up front with that extra link – excellent. Sneaky link tactics stink.

    I remember having this discussion with a friend of mine a couple years ago. Another guy couldn’t stomach the idea of fighting five-year-olds, so the parameters were changed to robots with the strength and ability of five-year-olds. I guess it makes it more morally palatable. It was the inspiration behind the naming of a website actually – (not my website… just pointing it out).

    My result: 17 of the little punks before they would overtake me.

  2. Where the heck do you find this stuff??? ROFL

    According to this, I can take on 17 of the little terrors. Heck, I’m a mom of twins… I take on double terrors every day! LOL

    Heh, funny… I just stumbled upon this meme last night.

    Twenty-six for me… looks like I need to start going to the gym more.

  4. I think everyone’s had this thought – at least briefly – after seeing that episode of Seinfeld where Kramer takes on the karate class.

    Like with a car accident, I wanted to look.

    But alas, the website gets eaten by district filters.

    Weird…I wanted to see how many I could take, but when I get to “OK I’m finished. What’s my score?” it takes me to some online dating service.

    I think I’d prefer beating up kindergarteners.
