Was out for a walk in the middle of town in Reykjavík/Iceland. I was waiting on a light to cross the street when some guy ran up to me, shoved me to the ground and put his foot over my chest as he shouted something about me owing money. I said he obviously had the wrong guy. Then he told me to shut up as he called his buddies over saying "he got the bastard". He then threatens to stab me if I move and then kicks me in my left side because I re-adjusted as I was lying there.

His friends come and see Im not their guy and they run accross the street. The same guy attacks another man and I use the opportunity to call the police, the guy runs off down laugarvegur and the police dont find him but talk to me and ask me to describe him ect.

I now have a bruised shin, sore side. But worst of all I spilt my monster energy drink when he shoved me. Evil or Very Mad

By any chance do you resemble the prime minister and were your assailants speaking with Dutch accents?

Wow, you have to love the Internet keyboard warriors sometimes. I bet if you're out alone and are accosted by a guy who may or may not be armed, fighting back would be the very last thing on your mind.

Besides, escalation is a *****. Don't do it unless you know what you're doing, because you could end up in the ER or a box.

Seriously, how many people live in Iceland? Go find him--from the CIA World Factbook:

Age structure

0–14 years: 21.5% (male 32,818; female 31,614)
15–64 years: 67.5% (male 111,216; female 100,367)
65 years and over: 11.0% (male 15,589; female 18,001)

Cut out 0-14, 65+, and female 15-64. Hell, you can probably guess his age to ±5 years, and get down to a pool of around 50,000. Most likely less, especially if you know what he looks like, if he's a foreigner or native, etc.

He could have stabbed you. You are very lucky, actually.

Knife wounds, just as most people instinctively know this, can be incredibly dangerous if the attacker knows how to use it, e.g., twists the blade before pulling it back, or slashes while deep inside the tissue.

You are one incredibly lucky fellow.

Or do a tour in the armed forces and learn a full range of pvp skills, that has kept me from being ganked for a while now.

Tsk tsk, when the police find him I hope they give him a good talking to concerning his manners. The correct procedure when looking for a fight is to randomly insult people until you find someone who's up for it, the idea of ganking someone's monster energy drink is simply not sporting. Wink


Joking aside that sucks mate, were I in Iceland I'd offer you a hug and a strong drink. I think the word shaken is a good description of how it feels to be attacked, nothing exaggerated or emo and still able to maintain composure but there's a voice inside that starts to question and maybe be a little more observant. At least that's how it's been for me.

There's a big difference between a random brawl and a person who's got a specific aim to rob or hurt you, it's the nasty side of our monkey minds and has an odd side effect of bringing depth to our little world of New Eden.

I think you'll find the ancient Icelanders had a more nuanced approach, their original community was comprised of people who got as far as the Shetland Isles and decided that the climate was too sunny and warm for them.

For this reason they only kicked the men. Women were taken as a form of central heating.

Damn you and your culture, I was talking about this.


Not sure how much truth there is to it, sure there was viking raids n all that but I suspect that Icelandic humour has is basis in the ability to sell rancid fish to foreigners.

As for the sagas I'd like to read them but unfortunately haven't got round to it yet.
