    Talking Man stops NY subway fight by stepping between the fighters and casually eating cheddar Pringles

    Apparently the dude by the door followed the woman onto the train, which she was, understandably, none too plussed about. Words and kicks are exchanged until our quiet superhero steps in, plying what appears to be Pringles from atop a White Cheddar popcorn bag into his mouth, appearing as if he knows nothing's going on, and completely defuses the situation (this is probably some kind of Navy Seal trick). After that, fellow straphangers plead with the male aggressor to get off at the next stop.

    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    If he'd been eating the salt and vinegar, everything would have ended in a group hug and a rousing rendition of kumbaya.

    If the guy isn't a cop, he should be. That was smooth, gutsy and very cool....not a word was spoken or needed to be.

    Anyone else catch that the chip eaters hands were in a ready position? Im sure it is just because that is how one eats chips but if it were planned it is a good way to be ready but not look like you are.

    Good stuff.

    Reminds me of an FTO I once had. We went to a bad verbal DV with the husband and wife really going at it. Several attempts to calm them down were unsuccessful. They just screamed past us over our shoulders. I didn't notice my FTO walk into the kitchen. I did, however, notice him walk back out to the living room with a bowl of cereal. He sat down at the dining table and started to eat it, slurping and crunching loudly. After a few seconds, the couple stopped arguing and stared at him like a cow looking at a new gate. The look on their faces was "Who the F is this guy eating our cereal??" FTO said, "Are you two done?" It provided a cool down and we were able to go from there. I about shit myself, and I know I'm not near salty enough to pull it off.

    To give credit where it's due, he said he got the idea from some article in an old police rag at some point. This isn't something he pulled regularly.

    There is a fine line though. If you start drinking their beer, things tend to escalate.

    That kind of guy worries me. He's the calm, quiet type that can probably cut your throat with one of those potato chips.

    It's not the potato chips you have to worry about, it's the stealth gummy bears in the bag underneath. Those things are lethal.
