Flight cause you won't remember fleeing but the scars will definitely be a reminder of the scars

It depends on the fight. If it's something that really matters than ya fight! But if it's not very important or something that you don't think is right then well...

Flying is way better than a sword or something. But lie everything in this world it's dependant on context.

It depends on the situation, but if at all possible, I'll go with flight. I'd rather avoid a fight entirely, if possible. However, if the situation is inescapable, I'll fight with knives and guns and teeth and nails and you will never see the light of day again. (This goes for both physical fights and actual arguments with people.)

Freeze.
>_<''

If it's against bears, snakes, anything that's not a human, you're generally better off freezing- because if you freeze, either they don't notice you're there, or they don't see you as a threat. Because generally the only reason any animal (other than humans, cus we're silly) would try to hurt you is:
- You're in their territory and they see you as a threat.
- You're near their offspring, and think you're gunna murder 'em.
- They are hungry, and you just happen to be there. (That generally doesn't happen unless they've eaten a human before. They don't generally see humans as "food", just something randomly passing by. They don't know we're delicious. In fact, if a lion eats a human, you actually have to kill it, because once it eats one, it likes the taste so much that it refuses to eat anything else. It literally looks for more humans to eat.)
- You hurt the animal, or perhaps the animal was hurt by another human, so it attacks you.

Looking into an animals eyes is generally a sign of aggression and dominance, so if you do that, you could be attacked too.
In most cases, if you stay away from 'em and out of their territory, they'll leave you alone.
Actually, I think if you run into a bear you're supposed to lay down as if you're dead.
The problem with running is that most of the things you'd be running from are faster, and if you fight, unless you have a weapon, are usually stronger.
And in the case of canines/felines, the moment you run, it becomes a game.
Then you're definitely screwed.

I guess that depends on the opponent :P I have no experience of fighting, so I'd probably run. If I wasn't clearly going to be able to beat my opponent, then I'd fight.

FLY until they catch you.... then fight :) haha

It really depends on the situation. Sometimes it's just not worth fighting and others it's impossible to run. < both literally running from physical danger and more intellectual fights. It's more about knowing when to quit.

Choose your battles.
A fool is quick to anger.
keep the warrior mindset.
Never compromise your beliefs.
Pain is weakness leaving the body.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight it's the size of the fight in the dog.

if there's something worth fighting for, then fight.
if fighting proves foolish and vain, then flee.

but if fleeing is against what you believe,
then fight even if it seems foolish and vain.

Did anyone else think of more abstract ideas first rather than "physical danger" ones? Such as standing up for your beliefs when it counts and being able to provide answers, or walking away when someone challenges your faith and whatnot... Just a thought ;)

But yeah, even then it depends on the predicament. I think one should be prepared to fight for one's beliefs if necessary, but getting away from the situation is not a bad thing either. I don't think we owe it to every last person to explain/defend why we believe what we believe.
