    It's hard for me not to be safe :).  I once had a CT scan of my head after a 600 lb wine barrel hit me coming down.  The doctor told me I am a mutant, because my skull (and the rest of my bones) are about a centimeter thicker than normal.  I am a great big guy, with only a little extra padding.

    I wear a hard hat, full goggles, and protective clothing made from Kevlar.  If a cop wants to take me down, he better bring 3-4 friends, and at least four sets of zip-ties.
    And that's only if I'm not resisting.  I know how to move my hands, arms and wrists to avoid them.

    I like pepper spray on my scrambled eggs, I'm an expert in small-circle Japanese Jiu-Jitsu (Aikido) - and Kempo as well, and can pull very interesting defensive moves that do not look offensive at all - but prevent anyone from manipulating my limbs.

    Think of me like.... Hagrid, but with shorter hair, and not as kindly.  I'm not easily intimidated.

    I'll be there, and I'll be loud, and I'll be in front.
