      But he spends all his time farming the land and doing manual labour. Surely he would kick your ass.

        I have grown up eating nutrients and am 6'5". That man is 5 heads tall. He must be around 4'8".

          Your "nutrients" are microplastics and shitty processed food. This man will casually turn you into fertilizer

            Malnourished farmers have shit nutrition. There’s a reason why our average height is only just now recovering to pre-agriculture levels.

              Which is why it's all the more humorous you'd still get your ass beat by a manlet, even on his fast day.

              In a legit streetfight with a medieval Peasant and a Redditor, my money is on the peasant over the Redditor. However, they'd lose against just about anyone else.

    Well consisting every pitchfork I've ever seen is like 5 or 6 feet long at the longest, he might be a halfling. Certainly a manlet.

          Even without it, he's probably pretty strong from working the land doing manual labour everyday.

            It is true. I work behind a desk all day, he likely is much physically stronger than I am. Frankly if I had to bed I would put my money on the shit farmer. Despite that, with no pitchfork it would at least be a fair fight. Might not be favored but at least I'm in with a shot. With the pitchfork I think I'm out.

              If he gets the pitchfork I get a pistol. Only fair that we get to use readily available weapons of our time period, right?

                Pitchfork is primarily a tool, not a weapon, so you too get era-appropriate tool of choice. I'd recommend forklift.

                I'm not sure about this. There is only a finite amount of people in the past that had less advanced weapons then I have today, but a potential infinite amount of time in the future where there are people with more advanced weapons.
                If we are doing time-travel cage fights then I would prefer tech stays out of it, or there is a very good chance the next guy in the ring has a nuclear ray pistol or some shit like that.

      Forget the pichfork, what about those houses? If you look at the scale of the field (blades of grass by his feet as large as flowers right next to the house) he can't be more than dozen yards from them so it can't be trick of perspective.

        the house is in a dip and he's on a rise - notice the grass seems to cut off suddenly right behind him and then again a short distance back
        the perspective is a little fucky but he's definitely closer to the "camera" than he initially seems

        Fast twitch muscles are a real thing. Literally every martial art will have you train for explosiveness. It’s the difference between a sprinter and a long-distance runner.

        The reason why
        >I’m sure to win because my speed is superior
        Is a meme, is because more muscles = more speed = more power (generally). Though, being a gigaroided powershitter is not a great physique for fighting, as you’ll gas out in about 30 seconds (not to mention flexibility). Lean and muscular is the best.

    Good people, things will never go well so long as goods be not in common, and so long as there be peasants and gentlemen. By what right are they whom we call lords greater folk than we? On what grounds have they deserved it? Why do they hold us in serfage? If we all were made by the same gods, how can they say or prove that they are better than we, if it be not that they make us gain for them by our toil what they spend in their pride? They are clothed in velvet and warm in their furs and their ermines, while we are covered with rags. They have wine and Hispanices and fir bread; and we oat-cake and straw, and water to drink. They have leisure and fine houses; we have pain and labour, the rain and the wind in the fields. And yet it is of us and of our toil that these men hold their state.

      Dumb fuck, these have served us for generations. Would you rather take some oligarchs who has no ties or tradition related to you? Who would displace for the sake of profit? We all have part to play: we farm gods greens and they farm men for the good of all.

        In addition to what the other guy said, not only is the nobility probably better fed, they are better armed, and trained to fight, and kill, as individuals, and in groups, to consider logistics, and to anticipate the strategic plays of an enemy.

        A small body of armed, trained people, has always been able to dominate a larger body of unarmed, untrained people.

          Exactly, peasants were strong because of manual labour, nobles are strong and specifically trained to fight, The daily life of a regular knight was insanely intense physically. Those dudes must have been the equivalent of modern special ops soldiers in terms of phyisical condition and fighting ability.

          Guns don't kill people. Bullets do. But it doesn't matter because by the time you finish digging through your beauty products and whatever other trinkes you keep in there the simple man with a simple tool will have aleady won the engagement.

    >by the size of the pitchfork, the peasant is 4'8-4'10, maybe 120-130lb to my 5'8 220lb
    >he's a medieval farmer so he's probably wiry and can handle himself in a fight, and is almost certainly used to fighting bigger men
    >I'm an obese asthmatic myopic autist with a dull sense of pain and a poor temper, who hasn't been in a fight since high-school six years ago
    I can shoot a can off of a tree stump at 100 yards without a scope 9/10 times but that doesn't mean anything in hand-to-hand combat. Unless I can somehow grapple him with my weight "advantage" and gouge an eye or some shit in the first two minutes, he'll outlast me and knock me out. Might kick out my knee or crush my head with a rock. I'm not exactly a prime combatant but I hope to change that while I'm still young. Already lost 30lb changing my diet and am working out, but my lungs keep shutting down on me after a few minutes. Anytime people say they don't want gene-edited fetuses, it drives me wild. Most of my genes came out of a sewer. Crazy thing is my younger brother's an athletic chad quarterback with 130IQ and perfect eyesight. Same parents, same source, he just had a better roll of the dice. Don't resent him for it, is what it is. Peasant would probably kick my ass.
