How many 5 year olds could you take in a fight?

This came from a friend’s blog and became an interesting topic of discussion at my Mum’s New Years’ Eve party, especially amongst the McIntyre’s!

Here’s the gist:

  • 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.
  • Our own interpretation included the following: they are 8, not 5, i.e. twice as mean, they are also Weegies (the Children are from Glasgow), specifically Barmulloch, scary, you are allowed to be as mad as you like (Aunt Katherine was particularly keen on this rule), children CAN be used as weapons (Neil McIntyre needed this comfort).

    Outcome was,

    Aunt Katherine : 10+ kids

    Neil McIntyre : 7 kids

    Euan McIntyre : 8 kids

    I think we shoujld all be afraid of Aunt Katherine, but we knew that, right?
