    Ah, those good ol' scots and London is often just plain scary, I much prefer to be in a good size group including some big tough looking people when I go, I would never go on my own, even if I went in the middle of the day and stuck to the nicer parts

    I just found an article about it. It does say DEVELOPED world, which means at least you won't find any warnings on travel sites about the possibility of visitors getting shot seconds after they get off the plane.

    Anyway, as per the OP, I've been told I'm not cautious enough. But not because I'm nice. I've just never feel worried about walking around by myself at night. In fact, I find it calming.
    But even though I might be overconfident about the improbability of dangerous situations. I'm still cynical with individuals who seem to be increasing the odds of danger before my eyes. For example, one night walking in a residential area of Minneapolis when I was about 20, some guy drove up into a driveway, blocking my path, and asked me (with a curiously not-sad demeanor) if I had seen his lost dog and if I wanted to see a picture of it. He didn't put the picture up to the window, so I couldn't confirm there was one, he wanted me to trust that it was in his lap or something. Yeah, didn't fall for that one. Are there seriously women who would?
    Wow, that pervert wasn't even creative.

    Or death. It takes just 4lbs of pressure to crush someone's trachea. I could show you some other death points, but death may be frowned upon in some places.

    An uppercut between the chin and throat is quite painful as well.

    I agree esp. as opposed to an uppercut between the bicep and forearm, for example.

    Huh, I did not know that. Just knew it hurt.

    When I was young, I was in a situation where I had to play along/defend myself. The best thing I ever learned was to aim at his nuts and kick really hard.. several times. Lastly, kick his face when he's on the ground.

    I'm a pretty good judge of character. So when the situation calls for it, I will go with my gut and if put in danger, I'd find ways to self-defend myself. My friend who was in the marines taught me some useful stuff. But, that's why, sometimes, when I go out somewhere, I know I can really rely on my pointy shoes..

    Have I ever been ridiculed for not playing along? Yes.. mainly from clueless peers who live sheltered lives. I have the street smarts in me..

    Women, take up arms. If you want equal rights, you have to prove yourselves.

    Did you read the thread? It's not about equal rights or proving anything.
