    Hello mortals.

    Recenly my friend was walking home, and while he was just outside of his house he heard the sound of smashing glass. He walked out of his driveway and saw two burglars run away from his house as fast as they could.

    They had nearly gained entry to his house with a hammer by smashing a window. They left when they heard him coming and thankfully there was no confrontation.

    This left me wondering however, imagine if a burglar confronted/threatened/ or tried to hit you, what would you do?

    Would you physically attack him? Comply with all his demands? Just scream?

    I would opt for phyiscally attacking him however this would probably have many legal repercussions...

    What do you think?

    I would probably find the whole experience enormously arousing and attempt to have sexual intercourse with it.

    Respect his "human" rights and make him dinner, offer him my wife, my children as slaves and the clothes I'm wearing.

    Lol, nah I'd batter the scumbag with a lamp.

    "Hi. You breaking in as well? I've had a look around and there's nothing worth stealing. Want to have an early breakfast with me?"

    Burglars are stupid, right?

    This happened to me recently - I was sitting here at the computer when my door handle started to turn. I went and opened it to find some well dodgy man standing there. He came up with some excuse about looking for "bob" or some ****, saying his uncle from next door let him in (nonsense). I just asked him to leave and escorted him out. Unfortunately my housemate was in the bathroom at the time and he had been in her room first and taken her phone, which he left with. I should have beaten the crap out of him but I stay bizarrely calm in situations like that.

    Id just let him/her take what they wanted to keep myself safe, and then I'd probabaly faint...

    I love how everybody's acting the big man saying "I'd smash the ******* in the face!" when in reality they'd more likely hide/run away/comply with his demands.

    I would have a discussion with him on the ethics of what he was doing and make him a cup of tea.

    Creep around to my brother's room and get his golf club. Then proceed to run, cry, screaming directly at the burglar like a crazy old lady and randomly swinging the club around, maybe I'd get lucky and freak them out or just end up causing more damage

    I'd flatly refuse to give him anything if he just walked in. If he was armed it would be another story...
