15, they say. They don't know the power of story-telling and game-making, because I could handle a lot more than that! Add a little nursery song, and it's hundreds I can handle! Until their parents come to pick them up, that is.

Just yelling "who wants a big hug and lots of wet kisses?" is enough to disable a good number - and make the others line up. I'm an auntie or big cousin to enough kids to know how to make 5-years old flee. [Big Grin]

22. Although I know from experience (read: my girlfriend's son jumping on my head in the middle of the night) that I can barely even take down one.

I wonder if they are taking into account the complete and utter indestructibility of a five year old, especially if said five year-old thinks they're having fun. Seriously. I've watched the kids at aikido and they just *bounce*.

Ha - a weedy - but probably more realistic 6

C'mon you could seriously use a little kid as a weapon? If we are talking rabid zombie kiddies maybe - otherwise who are you kidding (pun intended)

13 – 18 depending on how dirty I fight.

But, hey, I've pushed around (read: serious blowout) an older brother who at the time was twice my weight (more likely 3x at this point due to my own shaping up). Also, I have a much younger brother (by 8 years), and I've been the referee (read: jungle gym) at a few of his b-day parties way back when. I think that if at 13 or 14 I could handle 20 5 and 6 year olds climbing all over me without catastrophic system failure, I think I'd do pretty well today. Hey, I'm taller, leaner, more muscular, and grouchier.

If you really want to be able to take on those little buggers, just remember, at 5 they're still young enough to be replaced. [evil]

I think the test vastly underestimates two things:

1) The possibilities encompassed by the phrase "fighting dirty"

2) My willingess to use explosives

wouldn't explosives fall under the category of weapons? of which there are none?, except possibly a five year old used as a weapon?

what about turning a 5 year old in to a bomb?
or creating a bone knife, or using a femur as a club?
