I disagree about carrying cash. IMHO I'd rather placate the 'robber' by giving him a few hundred bucks and letting him get away. Of course, this assumes the BG gets a jump on me, which is somewhat unlikely for me and most others here, as most of us are continually practicing good situational awareness.
Anyway, if the BG does get me cornered, then a few hundred bucks might save my life (or his).........

Guy pulls into a gas station with a truck load of firewood. Hot looking "Working girl" pulls in and says "I'm part of the underground economy, I believe in the barter system. Do you wan to trade sex for firewood?"
The guy responds, "How much firewood do you have?"

When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.
