My Bad-Ass Quotient System (measure someone's bad-assness)

Post by suncrafter » Tue May 15, 2007 1:53 am

I love it when people have "who would win in a fight" conversations. You know the kind - "Who would win in a fight between Robocop and the Terminator?" or "Who would win a fight between Peewee Herman and Gilligan?" Etc...

But something that is always laking in those conversations is a proper, quantifiable, measurement of how much of a "bad-ass" someone or something is.

Toward that end - here is my BAQ (Bad Ass Quotient) System:

http://www.normandcompany.com/INDEX/BAQ.html



Questions for all of you, after you take a look at my site...

1) What do you think your own BAQ is? (Be honest.)
2) Who or what should I add to the above list.
3) Do you think I have too much time on my hands?

First thing I noticed is that you have Xena higher than Chuck Norris. Shame on you.

Who would win a fight between Peewee Herman and Gilligan?
That one almost caused me to spray my monitor with cola, and indeed, that would be an excellent match-up.

Edit:
I see King Kong placed lower than Godzilla. You must have seen the original Japanese cut of the film =)

ROFL, Austin Power is more BAQ than Jason, and Willy Wonka more BAQ than George W. Bush... pretty funny.

But seriously, you have way too much time to make something like that...

Chuck Norris isnt Nr.1 because Chuck Norris doesnt want you know how bad ass he realy is.

Not sure if a Butterfly (armed) would hit less then the A-Team (armed).

To be fair to Chuck - Xena is listed as being armed with a sword and her throwing knife/ring-thingy - Chuck was listed as unarmed.

However, even if both were unarmed - MY money would still be on Xena.

There is no chin under Chuck Norris' Beard. There is only another fist.

Mike Tyson rated a lower badass than Chuck Norris. That is utterly unrealistic. Atleast MikeTyson was rated in top 10 outrages men.

I think Bruce Lee deserves a little more credit than to be below James Bond and Worf (all unarmed). 8)

I think those values are entirely made up, and thus contribute nothing to any discussion about who is more badass.

It is evident by the numerous glaring discrepancies, some mentioned previously, and for example that an Elephant rates higher than Dath Vader (even armed with lightsaber), Wolverine (from X-men), and Terminator. Any one of those would easily rip an elephant apart.

Also the basic concept of a Badassness measured by a scalar value is flawed, since relative Badassness is just that - relative. It all depends on who's fighting who, and under which circumstances. There is for example no doubt that Magneto would easily wtfpwn both Terminator and Wolverine (at the same time), but he would be in deep shit if an Elephant or Jackie Chan went after him and there were no metals nearby. On the other hand, Jackie Chan would be powerless against Terminator or Wolverine in any circumstances.

I think nothing actually contributes to any discussion about who is more badass, because there is no point to having one. :P These things are just for fun, not to be taken seriously in any way (which is why I felt the need to add a smiley in my previous post) :D

In short, Everything is Miscellaneous

I think you should compare what is comparable : Chuck Norris is multicore, it should'nt be compared to single core like Xena. It's obvious.

Hmm. I'd like to list my bad-ass quotient as something ridiculously high, but I won't let my ego get the better of me. More realistically, I'd have to say my bad-ass quotient would probably be around 10,005,106 BAQ (same as the Hulk). :twisted:
