(I really really wasn’t expecting people to respond to the fatal flaws post like they did)
today I learned that in the 1600s the Pasha of Algiers made it a capital offense to remove one’s thumbs from one’s girdle while having an argument, in an attempt to limit brawling. as a result, street fights are reported to have become a combination of shouting vicious insults, headbutting each other, and trying to punch one another with their elbows. i am imagining five or six enraged men furiously trying so hard to kill each other with only their elbows, and i am laughing so hard i am fucking wheezing
Either eliminate brawling, or invent slapstick, so either way, win.
