    If there were two of them which would mean I have no chance of escape, I would just shrug and say "Threesome??!" but then I'd kick them in the groin and tie them up with a skipping rope or some plastic bags, or any pieces of clothing, although the piece of clothing might tear and there would be two of them and they'd probably try and kill me, oh ****! I've only just considered the possiblity that they might be armed! Well if they were to be armed with, let's say, a gun or a knife, I guess I would try and negotiate wih them.. or tell them that there is more money in the vault that I keep up in the cellar, and they'll go to the cellar and I'll lock them up and call the police.

    Or if there was only one burglar, I would probably just find the closest physical thing and smash his head in (Yes, I said 'his', they all tend to be men).

    If he looks way too strong to be knocked out by a baseball bat, I'd just walk right out of my house as if i've just walked into the wrong house.

    As much as I'd like to say I'd use my awesome ninja moves.......I'd probably freeze, panic or even scream to be honest. Eek!

    Just need my hand.
    That explains everything, I thought the censored word referred to you taking a large dump on command.

    Hate to burst your bubble anyway, but my bf said he would love to watch me having a **** (your meaning) so if this is the case for all men then perhaps that might not deter the burglar after all...

    Well firstly, that's a fairly big if for such a massive generalisation.
    Secondly, my house mates seem very averse to seeing my penis. So not all men seem to like seeing that at the very least.

    Depends on the situation obviously. If some big black guy (going by the stereotype that black guys are genetically superior to whites) broke into my house with a gun, I would clearly let him be and hide under my bed. But if some minuscule white female broke in brandishing a dust mop I would be like lol gtfo *****

    My friend and I came back from the union one night to find the front door open. We went in, and although nothing had been disturbed we assumed that the burglar was in the house, so I said we should arm ourselves and my housemate picked up..... a small, circular hand mirror ie an incredibly useless weapon. So I think the answer is that I would try and resist, unsuccessfully.
    Also it turned out that my other housemate had unexpectedly come back blind drunk and left the door open.
