I probably don't understand time very well, but for some reason I'm thinking this would not be a factor.

And Mark says sorry:

http://blog.sfgate.com/hottopics/201...9-911-comment/

“To speculate about such a situation is ridiculous to begin with, and to suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible. I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive, it was certainly not my intention.”

The two situations aren't comparable at all. That guy was Vietnamese. The hijackers were Arab. They get totally different treatment from Marky Mark.

Yeah, I was trying to word that differently but it didn't come out right. His skills today obviously didn't apply then, but it shows his aptitude towards fighting.

The articles didn't mention what he trained (or if) prior to Roach & Ward, just that he took his training very seriously for the last 5 years. Roach said he's be comfortable with Mark fighting pro after a 3 month camp.

Yeah, that wasn't a street fight. He jumped a Vietnamese immigrant for his beer.

Haha... you are correct. He was a POS as a kid for sure. He hit the guy with a giant stick.

I'm not seeing the "Haha" part of the story. He beat the shit out of a guy, to the point that he lost an eye, because he was Vietnamese.

The "haha" wasn't directed to the crime itself, but to the fact that I completely misremembered the details of the assault to that extent. The E! True Hollywood story might have glossed on the details and I filled in the gaps, or I just recalled them incorrectly.

I guess the only question left is; is the beatdown preceeded with "Feel the vibration, bitch!"?

Uh, that's pretty much the definition of a street fight.

If I was in Hawaii in 1941, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor wouldn't have been successful.

If I was in Ford's Theatre in 1865, Lincoln would still be alive today.

Someone remind him that there were no squibs and nobody yelling "cut!" on that flight.

Considering the terrorists had a few box cutters...I'd say "cut" was certainly one of the words mentioned over and over.

If I was in Cloud City there's no way the Empire would have been able to pressure Lando. There would have been some blood and a lot of panic but by the time Han showed up I would have gotten on the comm and said, "Bring her in easy old buddy."

If I was on that flight, there's no way Mark Wahlberg would have been able to take out those terrorists.

Wait, that one doesn't work.
