Err, nope.

I've only seen it done close up one time (I was about 3 feet away), back when I was at college. A then friend of mine had had an altercation with someone a few minutes before. The someone was standing in line, then friend walked up and stood face to face whilst they continued their issue, friend then suddenly butted the other chap. There was no backwards movement first, left the chap on the floor with a split nose. As Alec said, quick and messy......

I for one do not intend to let anyone that I don't know or trust get that close to me.


A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
