Soooooo...we're saying that a manly man like Rich here should be saying something like: "A stab to the chest? Pffft, 'tis but a flesh wound."? I do not know how many of use have been stabbed, shot, or otherwise forcibly perforated, but from my personal experience: I was completely unaware that I had ripped myself open until someone else pointed it out to me, then the shock and pain hits one rather like a board to the face ( also an unpleasant experience btw, even when it happens by accident ). Shock and pain are shock and pain and cause involuntary reactions such as passing out no matter how "manly" one might be. My thought for the day.
Actually, we're saying that Stan is thinking that. Granted I can only speak for myself.
I *don't* seriously think a "manly man" would or should be doing what you illustrated. And there are people who seriously think that, I just don't think they're in this thread.
