    I walk around with a limp for the sole purpose of letting predators know if they want trouble they can get it. Its just away to warn of people if they try anything... its all survival.

    Biologically and evolutionarily speaking, this is all wrong. Walking with a limp would be an indication of being wounded and thus being less able to defend yourself and having lower fitness. Ironically, it would make you more of a target for predators.

    More practically, it does tend to make you look like you've wet yourself.

    I disagree - and not just the evolutionary argument I've sketched out. Do you see the Klitschko brothers walking with a limp? I think that affected limp thing actually marks you out as someone who feels vulnerable and is attempting to play a 'part' in order to ward of any potential threats - it makes you look weaker. Walking and standing tall and confident is far more likely to project an image of strength than limping along pretending to have survived being shot (which, of course, no-one would actually believe).

    I have sciatica which results in nerve pain from the base of my spine all the way down to my right foot. I'm alright most days, but when it's cold I tend to walk with a limp

    You are all talk, clearly you live in a tiny village. Go to any majour city down centre approach someone walking with a limp and chest out see if they backdown from you.

    Sometimes walk with a limp - I have deformed kneecaps and sometimes they take it in turn to give me grief.

    Well, I suppose Hampstead is a village, so yes - in a way I do.

    I think you're getting me confused with a teenage boy who thinks this sort of thing is important or in any way relevant to his life.

    This sounds like you would get the opposite outcome....

    And before you assume I live in a village too... Londoner here, hi! It wouldn't make me think you were tougher at all - sounds a little bit like a waste of your time.
