Step with the Evil Shirts on <> suave spokesperson.



Besides, Step strikes me as someone who's honest and trustworthy. We can't have someone like that representing the Family! Perish the thought! We need a smooth talker, an exaggerator, a liar. Think Pat Robertson or Tony Snow.
Um........thanks.............I think.

But he's a student. You can't put "hard-working" next to a student!.

Well, you see, that disqualifies you immediately. The consigliere's job is to be the polite face that makes the offers. The weaponry guys only come out when that fails. Plus you don't look like Robert Duvall (Unlike me. )

Tell you what, you can be Luca Brasi. Don't make any long-term plans.

Also, breaking the sternum, by kicking it or other various method, can stop the heart. That's one of the manuevers that I appreciate immensely.
For a man that knows so much about weaponry you show a surprising lack of need for any.

That reminds me of another movie. This one unlike the one conjured up by Jat's comment, I enjoyed a lot.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0188453/

Ben Chaplin is phenomenal in it. Mostly due to how perfectly he portrayed a shy, boring, undistinguished guy with a good heart, I never rooted harder for the guy to end up with the girl at the end watching a movie than watching this movie. .

The idea of a mail-order assassin sounds just as tantalizing as that of a mail-order groom...

Go easy on him, Step. Rob's a young man in his early twenties. He's supposed to have nothing but lewd thoughts.

I know the nose thing is quite hard to hit, and also requires some strength. If hitting the head, I don't particularly hit for the nose specifically. I just try to hit anything that would hurt, and if it's the nose that I hit, then that's fine. Hitting the temple hard can I think cause up to a concussion, if not unconsciousness (I guess you have to hit real hard for that).

I think you can also cause concussion (not sure about that, though) and knock someone out for a short time by making your hands bowl shaped and hitting one on each ear very hard at the same time. That's just air pressure, but it can do a lot. At least it will gain you some time to flee, as it will surely cause dizziness. Oh, and of course so much air hitting the eardrum is not very good for it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, though. I think I might have forgotten some of the details of what exactly the results of some of the attacks are, since the self defense workshop.


And if all else fails, there is always one attack that will gain you time, at least when being faced with a man.

Like I said, I know it takes a very hard blow. It is possible though. As about kicks, I am very good at executing those. Though maybe not that high if the person is taller than me.

Oh, and did you know that you can use books for self defense? The edge of a hardcover book to just below the nose is very effective and hurts like hell.

I dunno. I'm really wondering where they get all these statistics from, because I'm fairly sure that I've never had a period of thinking nothing but lewd thoughts...

Yep. In a fight, anything can be used as a weapon, even a pair of eyeglasses. Just jab the ear hook into the attacker's eye socket.
