What does a punch sound like?

Who knows? No one, really.

Some but I would say less than 1% of 1%.

10 billion people, maybe 1% of 100,000,000 or 1 million people.


But if a country is at war since 1976 (the last 43 years (I’m 47 years old as of this writing) , the % is probably much higher.  

Afghanistan, with a population of 31 million, must suffer a rate of 25% of actually knowing what violence sounds like.

Perhaps even tougher states (such as Alabama) have a higher rate.

How does this affect us?

Does it help me today that I don’t know what death and violence look or sound like?

TV has such an influence on what I believe is to be true, it’s almost shameful to admit how much.  

I have no clue what a real landed punch sounds like.
