    Rate Your Risk of Assault

    I thought this might be pertinent:

    The following test lets you rate your actual risk of being Assaulted on the Street. This test uses known risk factors taken from executive security courses, police detectives and security consultants.

    https://www.rateyourrisk.org.secure....om/beaten.html

    My score:

    Your total is -19.

    (Negative score) A minus score indicates that the criminal would be in danger FROM YOU. The greater the negative score...the greater the danger.

    (0 to 50) This score shows a low risk of assault. You are either highly cautious or a poor target. You should not be foolishly overconfident however. Keep up the precautions and take the test again next month and don't fudge on your points.

    (51 to 80) This shows that you have a moderate risk of robbery or assault. It would be a good idea to be more cautious and cut out visiting an ATM machine at night. Take a self defense or executive security course. Don't carry so many charge cards.

    (More than 80) It would be a good idea to make out a will. Put your portable valuables in a safe deposit box. Think twice before you go nightclubbing or driving. You are obviously having a fun life but to make it through another year it would be advisable to take up jogging, martial arts, firearms and carry a police officer with you when you go out. Carry some cash (25 to 50 dollars) and fewer credit cards.

    Interesting questions... some I wouldn't have thought of.
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    Gee, I guess I'm a "high" scorer here with a +1, but I can live with it.

    This sounds like a case where "Mine is smaller than yours" is a good thing.

    BTW -6 here.

    I rate my chances of being assaulted at 100%.
    Anytime, anyplace. That formula sounds like an insurance guide.
    I'm as ready as I know to be.

    Don't remember the score, but it did say that the bad guys would be at risk from me.

    I hope so. I seriously hope so.
