You are the best.
When I first saw this thread, I was thinking, "Oh no, not THAT again..."
...but now I'm wondering if the astronauts have weapons.
I have faith that the astronauts would be able to craft weapons in a quick amount of time if needed. If set upon suddenly, more and more of the non-military (ie civilian geeks) personnel are getting combat training (ie martial arts to keep from getting slapped around back in school)
Do the Astronauts have weapons?
...only a kriffing huge rocket, nothing too elaborate.
I don't know...some of those astronauts are pretty scrawny...I'd have to go with cavemen. What they lack in intelligence might be able to be made up for in brute strength and instinct. But not if they were fighting on the moon.
Are they fighting on the moon?
you know...this is the second time this question has been asked today.
You get this from D.C.?
Me! I'd win in a fight!
Once I started laughing when Spike asked the question to Wesley, I knew it would appear on this site.
Thanks IA for reaffirming the faith I have in this group.
Cavemen! they survive in the most annoying conditions with just their hairy selves and some clubs. of course they could beat the snot outta some astronauts!
once the cavemen ripped them outta their spacesuits, they could probably just let the elements have them...
(I think i gave this way too much thought)
I also would think the astros would mkae some wepons quick.The cavemen would run at the sight of the suit and the reflective visor.But you could have the one overly aggresive male who would crack the astros in the face to prove his dominace.Then houstan would have a big problem.
If the Astronauts have weapons, they win.
If not, the cavemen win hands-down.
I'm voting for the Cavemen.
I'm with Spike on this one: it's a primal thing.
Anwelei: unless you started analyizing the difference between neanderthal vs cro-magnon for the cavemen and Apollo vs Gemini for the astronauts you haven't yet reached the point where you should be worried.
In a no weapons scenario, definitely the cave men. they're stronger and maybe faster. The astronauts these days, while physically fit, won't stand a chance, since most are scientists, educators, pilots, etc. Few except the pilot and mission cmmdr even have military backgrounds these days.
I you guys!
But hey...are they fighting on the moon or what because then the cavemen would be at a severe disadvantage unless they got suits.
Given equal advantage for oxygen and gravity situations I still think the cavemen would win. I can just imagine one of them screaming "Ugga Ga Bugga HA!" while whacking an astronaut Equilibruim style.
**If you know where I got the "Ugga Ga Bugga HA!" quote from you win maxium health and get unlimited lives.**
Oh great, IA, now you have me thinking about the difference between different cavemen! (Don't know a thing bout the astronaut crews)
Did you know that Neanderthals had bigger brains relative to ours? By all accounts they SHOULD have outlived and outevolved us (if you believe that kinda thing) So i'm saying the Neanderthals would kick astronaut booty.
NOW i'm worried, hah!
