    Is it just me or does it seem odd that the poster of this story has an avatar including a knife similar in size to that of the attacker in the story? :eek:

    They don't make tough guys like they use too. Modern so-called Bad @ss are wimps compared to us geezers. The man fought off a robber, walked half a mile in the cold with a knife in his chest, called 911 and sat down for a cup of joe. That's bad @ssery worth of Teddy Roosevelt.:cool:

    Had the man been 20 years younger, we'd be reading about a would-be-robber who go stabbed by his own knife.;)

    I was just at Brays in Westland a couple weeks ago. I thought that was the only location?

    Another story, that if put in a movie, people would say, "hmph, that's so over the top!" It's truly amazing how at times reality is stranger than fantasy or fiction. :D

    That story reminds me of one I read a couple years ago about a man who (if I remember correctly) got totally smashed at a bar and got into a fight during which he was stabbed in the back, but was so drunk he didn't really realize it until he woke up the next morning with the knife still in his back.

    Stabbings just ain't what they used to be.

    Knew a guy who got wasted then jumped off his school roof. He didn't realise he'd broken his back until the next morning.

    Amazingly he made a full recovery. His friend also jumped and made it home with a broken leg, which he also only had treated the following day :rolleyes:

    Wow, it must have been an honour to serve coffee to Chuck Norris.

    A real man would have ordered lots of bacon on the side and a bottle of hot sauce.

    if he was really bad ass he would have just pulled the knife out and used the coffee pot to burn the wound closed.
