      Ravi,The qouets would have got me to understand.I think your point about if one goes looking for it in the real world they\'ll not find it so romantic\' is probably true. I\'ve been on the streets at night when something goes down, it lacks the framing that organized sort of basement sports events provide. Secondly, a gun trumps fists and feet, so there is always a question if someone has one sort of advantage.Or political demos with the cops all around ready for a little sport. Takes the idea of duking it out into another place. That place is where you lose go to jail and deal with jail life. All of which seems to me gives the fantasy of basement fighting a bit of delusionary aspect.To speak to being in fight, I\'ve been but there is always a question in my mind what will I do. I\'ve mostly lost the fear of losing. I\'ll walk into a bunch of teenagers who are being provocative to give them a little frisson of threat. Or if a guy is beating a woman or trying to really intimidate a women or children then I\'ll intervene, step between them. I never know when I do it if I can stay there or not. But it never feels like I\'m macho. It feels if I can use the moral framing thingy, the right thing to do at the time\' sort of thing. But scares the bejabbers out of someone with me.Doyle
