50 years ago I was a 1-2. today a 9. Would not do to push my grandsons to far.

I'll admit I've fell a few points on the scale since my youthful days but hope I'm still above national average.

Like a marshmallow, so 8.75 at the least.

They are angry to make up for it though.

I think they run and hide from not being in climate controlled surroundings.

Very sad.

Depends.
Every now and then I run across someone young that gives me a glimmer of hope.

That said, I'm in my 6th decade and see plenty of men my age that are worthless.
And probably always were.

And probably always were. While Iím not who I was when I was twenty, I have tried to maintain an active lifestyle, even more so the past few years. Gyms are full of people my age. Either they are the only ones that can afford it or they understand what is coming.

Depends on the definition of soft. I'm soft in that I wouldn't go shoot up a school to take out my frustrations on society. So with that scenario, it seems in today's society there are a lot of hard people.

I know a guy who has tow trucks and does mobile repairs. He said he gets a high number of calls for changing a tire and close to half of them are from men with no handicaps.

Makes a shade tree mechanic like myself laugh. I've changed out alternators and even water pumps beside the road and starters in parking lots since I was old enough to drive.

We have a wrestling mat at my house. My sons have grown up on the mat--often wrestling with me.

I recently made a very quiet and personal decision to stop wrestling my high school son. I outweigh him by 70 pounds but he recently scored a takedown on me. It sucked. And I know he wasn't going full speed--which makes it even worse.

I will now just use the mind against him and his brother.

ask others who know.....many over rate themselves. Ask the toughest fighters around your area...i mean bare knuckle street fighters. Ask local police,they usually have a good idea.

No Marty. I am 6 foot and 200lbs. He is shorter. But nice try. You should come try the wrestling mat!
