I'm with you, Bren. When something totally out of the ordinary happens, many people's lizard brains take over. In this case, the lizard brain is very afraid.

I've only been tested in much milder circumstances, but I'd like to think I'd be sitting on top of that guy within about 30 seconds.

I would have missed everything. I'm pretty sure I'd be in the break room.

Yeah, I guess if I think about it, I'd be unable to divert my attention from the internet.

Now if he threw my monitor around, he'd be dead meat.

More video (with sound!) from the same office incident.

One of those little thoughts in the back of my mind: how many sociopaths will this inspire? I'm picturing a disgruntled drone in middle America dialing up this video and having that last thin shred of self-control snapping in two.

Dateline - Fredericksburg:

"Yeah, man, that comrade had it right!"

*stands up, lifts monitor*

*sets monitor down* - "I could never hurt you, sweet internet..."

I probably would have taken that guy down too. I am not the type to just stand around while innocent ppl get hurt.

But then again... how many people still go out of their way to help people?

And when they do... usually you get a weird look.

In the last month I've stopped to offer the new neighbour a hand carrying drywall into his house, helped push one stalled car off to the side of the road, helped one woman change her tire at 1am in a bad part of town (which was probably even scarier than if I didn't stop - mine is not the face of "helpful motorist") and probably a few other minor things - holding doors open and the like.

I kind of get a laugh about the quick "what's your angle" look when I offer to help.

Being raised in the South, I try to be gentlemanly, but you, sir, are a real Walter Raleigh.

You really should move down here for the better roads and to help our Southern ladies.

Nah, just working off about 1000 years of purgatory for a misspent youth (and a further eternity for a misspent adult life).

At some point I became determined to leave the world a better place than I got it - mostly because I like what an astonishing idea that is to many people.

How we got here from "man, I would so totally punch that crazy office guy out" is beyond me...
