Has nobody here heard of thing called old man strength?

Ya, I'd bet a fair percentage of 85 year old guys could still deliver a damaging blow to even a 20 year old guy.

Being able to deliver that blow may be difficult, but if there's a bunch of them this would be easier and much more likely to happen.

lol... I worked in a drugstore when I was in high school, and these old men would come in and buy like 4 Mr. Goodbars and nothing else, I always assumed that once you're 80 your body can exist on nothing but bad candy, is that the secret to old man strength?!?

It's a pretty common term where I'm from because all these old farmers work till they're 70+. They may look frail and decrepit but they're just lean as a mutha.

I'd buy this for like a 70 year old, but no way for 85 year olds. These are people that should already be dead statistically speaking. If one of them threw a hard punch at me, I think they'd be far more likely to seriously injure themselves than to seriously injure me.

I think the real question is how many knife-wielding 85 year olds you could kill with a bat

Gang fight between a group of 85 year olds and a group of 5 year olds. Enclosed area with a concrete floor and cinderblock walls, no weapons, at least 50 participants on each side. At what ratio of 85 year olds to 5 year olds would the outcome of the fight be even money?

85 year old men are possibly surviving World War II veterans. They've been trained to kill, including in hand-to-hand combat.
