    Have you tried sports? Try playing defense in lacrosse or hockey. It really does wonders.

    No, you look like a psycho because you are mentally unstable. You probably have SA to, but that isn't why you look like a psycho.


    And to the OP. You have got serious answers.

    OK, here's a serious answer. You don't have to be on code yellow all the time just pay attention to your surroundings and follow a few simple rules.

    1. Don't act like a dick.
    2. Avoid places with lots of alcohol and testosterone.
    3. Be man enough to swallow your pride and walk away from situations. It doesn't make you a coward, it makes you smart.
    4. If your going someplace where you think you will need to be at code yellow then don't go there.
    5. If you find yourself someplace where you think you should be at code yellow - leave.

    It's really not that hard to do.

    Military, police, whatever, they are aware because they have to be aware. It takes a bit of practice, but anyone can do it. You just keep your eyes open, put your Ipod way, and look for anything that might be alarming. You have senses, so use them. My father was a pilot for over 50 years. He always stressed that if you aren't aware of what's going on you could get yourself or someone around you hurt or killed. It's the same on the road when you are driving, if you aren't aware of other drivers on the freeway, you could end up causing a serious accident. It's amazing how many accident could be avoided if idiot drivers would just be more alert.

    You just have to look, listen and minimize anything that might distract you or impair your senses.

    Pretty succinct and to the point here. Also...never look anybody in the eyes. Eyes can deceive. Watch their hands. Hands are what ultimately are going to kill you---that is, unless you catch a Thai kick to the head or nuts. lol

    These are pretty good, actually. I've done this stuff for years and have yet to be in a street fight. (I'm not counting drunken Navy dust-ups. Honestly, those were more like high intensity hugging sessions.)

    2. Avoid places with lots of alcohol and testosterone.
    Sports Bars on UFC night are a good example. I made the mistake of going to a national wing chain and paying the cover charge. It was nuts-to-butts crowded, which makes people edgy even without adding alcohol. On top of that, arguments were breaking out left and right, several people wanted to demonstrate techniques in the bar, and the restaurant staff was doing their level best to stay the hell out of the way. Handful of folks got 86'ed.

    Since then, when I do catch a UFC PPV event, we'll go to the guy's house with the nicest TV, all pitch in 10 bucks for beer and the event price, and be able to sit on a couch not having to worry about the chubster in the Affliction t-shirt who's already three piss-water pitchers into thinking he IS Randy Couture.

    Really?

    I always found when you look someone in the eyes and refuse to look away or look around they tend to back down more. I find people have problems keepin eye contact.
    How do you find their hands tell tale their intentions (besides grabbing a weapon etc..)
    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it
