i was reminded by the "largest animal/bare hands" thread.  this was a subject that came up often, back in the day. 

bear in mind that the average 5th grader is 4' 4" tall and 74 lbs.

Given ample space to maneuver, well over a dozen, probably two. I figure most of them will go down with a single solid hit, so it's just a matter of making sure they don't swamp you and start biting and clawing your eyes out. I'd more likely be defeated by my own conscience betraying me, "Why the fuck am I hurting little kids oh god get me out of here."


I am assuming that they will be armed with the usual school related things, so, if given enough ammunition I would have to say all of them.

i was talking more hand-to-hand combat.  not to say you couldn't pick one up and use 'em as a club against the rest.

With bare hands?

I'd say maybe 20, depending on how many waves they came as. I know 5th graders like to latch onto limbs and i imagine that'd be my downfall.
We appear to be doomed by our DNA to repeat the same destructive behaviors our forebears have repeated for millenia. If anything our problem solving skills have actually diminished with the advent of technology & our ubiquitous modern conveniences. & yet despite our predisposition towards fear-driven hostility; towards what we anachronistically term primitive behavior another instinct is just as firmly encoded in our make-up. We are capable as our ancestors were of incredible breathtaking acts of kindness. Every hour of every day a man risks his life at a moments notice to save another. Forget for a moment the belligerent benevolent billionaires who grant the unfortunate a crumb of costfree cake. I speak of pure acts of selflessness. A Mother who rushes into the street to save a child from a speeding vehicle. A person who runs into a burning building to reach a family trapped on the upper story. Such actions,such moments,such unconscious selfless decisions,define what it is to be human
