    A pretty close friend of mine is a student of the martial arts. Hes lean and terrifying. Sometimes he pretends practices on me when we are standing around. He was out on detail for the gas company he works for this week. I woke up to find this in my news feed.

    Its a long story so settle in.

    Cause PlazzmaDragy is lazy lol
    Tl;dr: trained martial arts friend finds a quarter, knows its special, goes to a dark gas station alone and almost gets mugged but uses the quarter to defend himself.

    PS: the only part i dont like is that he never told me if he got his Mountain Dew. That jerk :P
    Hes a fopping boss. Oh and ladies, he's single.

    While you described the fight, I imagined you as Sherlock Holmes describing what will happen.
    I did love that film and game of shadows.

    That would make a great Mountain Dew advert. You should totally pitch this to them.

    I was expecting a little more badass story. Like he noticed the guy running towards him, got in a throwing stance, and threw the quarter at him. Knocked him unconscious, wrote a little note to attach to the assailant for the police, called the police, got into his car. Stuck his hand out the window, and caught the quarter. Drove home drinking some Halo 4 Double XP soda. Like a boss.

    BUT. That story is awesome too.

    Sounds like the perp was... drawn and quartered.

    Seriously though, I'm a bit disappointed in you, Bortz. Your friend is quite evidently the living reincarnation of Bruce Lee and you only tell us now?

    The last statement is incorrect. The quarter was actually a save point. What he believes to be a fictional story that he created actually happened, and this reality is the reality that was reloaded at the save point, because your friend was disappointed in not finding the owner in the other reality after waiting many years. So the quarter is by fact, not by speculation, special. Quod erat demonstrandum.
