    They donít need to. It is implied.

    I lost track. Somebody remind me. Twelve people voted that they could take a gorilla. Stealsurface admitted to being one of them and made his case. Do we know who else and what their thinking is?

    If you click to view results it will show who those macho denialists are. AEvospace, bearcub69, bobz, exsparky, frorider, grskier, m2711c, pepperdawg, RootSkier, sirbumpsalot, stealurface831, VTskibum are all tougher than King Kong.

    Edit: Whoops. Looks like you lose the ability to do that after voting.

    I dispute the poll premise.

    How could you kill a gorillla if you don’t have arms?

    Karate kicks are awesome. But that’s a hard fight without arms.

    Thx mods. Itís an awesome signature.

    incorrect. i never said i could take a gorilla. i said--and maintain--that i could take a 120lb chimpanzee if given flakka.

    Who has the advantage in any physical category? Letís just go with the chimp instead of the gorilla because the chimp should in theory be easier.

    Strength: chimp
    Bite force: chimp
    Agility/speed: chimp
    Raw animal ferocity: chimp

    Really we humans (Iím assuming most of us posting on TGR are humans, although some are possibly chimps) and only have the edge in things that take brainpower (again, questionable for your average TGR poster)

    So maybe high-level martial arts folks that can use body geometry and the opponents strength against them could have an edge. Or if there were tools on the battlefield that the human could use to reduce the physical advantages of the chimp, like a spear.

    Does unarmed include shedding COVID?

    I stand corrected. Apologies. And I stand by my ďthe chimp would eat your face offĒ conclusion.
