When Pit Against a Giant Scorpion...

I have recently been playing a bit of Deadly Creatures. After a particularly lengthy amount of playing I came across this video, which I find to be nothing short of an uncanny tie-in. 


  


Having seen this, I find it, and all other rounds of Japanese Bug Fighting to be some of the most horrifying, awesome, and cruel things I've ever seen. Which got me to thinking, what would I do if I was put in a giant aquarium, for the sole purpose of fighting a giant scorpion. 

Personally, I would likely just lie down and die, as my fear of almost anything with more than four legs would prohibit me from thinking rationally. On the off chance I didn't immeadiatley submit, I would try and find something I could use as a weapon, but if there wasn't one, really, what could you do? I think that no matter what this scorpions got you beat. Needless to say I'm sure I'll be having nightmares of this nature for years to come.

So in closing I ask you, what would you do if you were in a fight to the death with a giant scorpion?

How giant are we talking. Giant as in more giant then your average scorpian. I would go for the stomp  or make use of some handy implement and kill its ass. Or are you talking Godzilla giant? In that case I'd probably try to run and realise the futility and stop and end of getting pwned.

poor spider :(

@c1337us: You and the scorpion are of equal size.

RADICAL!

@DanielJW: Then I would still get my ass handed to me. I am sure a scorpion would be far to fast and dexterous for me without having the advantage of size and strength.

@DanielJW:

There's nothing you really could do. I would drown myself in my own tears, knowing I was about to get killed by a mutant scorpion.

@Themanohall: You could call the Earth Defense Force.

When faced by a giant scorpion, I would run the fuck away, I don't care if I'm stuck in a hole, I'll run in circles, zig zag, back flip, whatever it would take.

When faced with a giant scorpion, I would locate some alcohol, douse said scorpion, and watch with glee as it stings itself to death in a frenzy.

@Oriental_Jams: I'm curious how back flipping would help you get away from scorpion. What if he was to snag you on his stinger in mid air? Ouch.

Sweet video. Scorpion wins! Fatality!

That video was fucking awesome. I am deathly afraid of tarantulas, that bastard had it coming.

@Al3xand3r: You should see the one where the scorpion body slams the hornet thing.

I would use a nuclear grenade.

That scorpion was a professional killer.  To kill a scorpion the size of me, obviously I would use the V.A.T.S. system.  But yeah, if you have to fight a scorpion your size with no gun/explosives, you might as well try to end yourself in the least painful way possible.

Wow, I didn't fully expect the scorpion to beat the tarantula, because on numerous occasions, the spider had it pinned down pretty good. Also, in the second vid with the hornet, that scorpion was running like hell for most of the video, and then it does, like, a damn scorpion-suplex to the hornet? What the hell? Pretty strangely entertaining videos......

Finally, I just want to say-the guys who did this are fucking jerks.

Pitted against a scorpion my size... try and stay the fuck away from that stinger would be all I tried to do...

Posted by DanielJW
@AzureSupernova: Really? I think I might take the opposite approach and try to run behind it to break off the stinger. 
Posted by AzureSupernova
@DanielJW:  Wait... if that scorpion was the same size as you, wouldn't that also mean his carapace would increase in thickness by scale too? How the hell do you expect to snap it? Maybe if you tried to trick it into stinging itself by keeping underneath it or if you're willing to risk it get on it's back....
Posted by DanielJW
@AzureSupernova: Maybe just snap off the very end with the stingy part? Not sure. Either way I think being behind it is probably better than being infront where the stinger, and the pincers can get you.
Posted by AzureSupernova
@DanielJW: Oh definitely, lets just hope that tail can't arch back on itself =| This is all taking into account that you aren't immobilized by a one meter long Scorpion...
Posted by DanielJW
@AzureSupernova: Well hell maybe getting under it would be good? His legs seem pretty flimsy, and I'd venture a guess it's under belly isn't it's strongest point. Throw a couple of Galactic Punts to the stomach! Haha.
Edited by AzureSupernova
@DanielJW: Maybe, also if you could get a piece of that carapace loose it might make for some basic defence against that stinger

@T0mF5: Ah yes, we forgot to factor in our unique weapon sets >.> Jk ;P

well, how high off the ground is the rad scorpian. Because i am pretty tall, and if we are talking about it scaling us. Then that would be crazy, but if it is fallout 3 size. I think i could take it out if i was quite a distant away from it and had some serious weapons

Posted by DanielJW
@AzureSupernova: If you jarred loose some of it and used it as a shield, do you think it might break the stinger? Then you could use the stinger as a sword and the carapace as a shield, then just Aragorn it from there.
Posted by AzureSupernova
@DanielJW: Ah, we've blown this whole fighting a Giant Scorpion thing wide open... pffft, bring on something bigger ;)
Posted by DanielJW
@AzureSupernova: ...Giant Moon Bear?
Posted by AzureSupernova
@DanielJW: I was thinking something more insect-like xD But whatever
Posted by DanielJW
@AzureSupernova: I was thinking Giant Cockroach, those things are hella indestructable.
Posted by AzureSupernova
@DanielJW: But how dangerous are they?
Posted by DanielJW
@AzureSupernova: Not very I would say, just really gross.
Posted by AzureSupernova
@DanielJW: Yeah... don't they carry their eggs on their back? They reckon thats why you shouldn't stamp on them cause the eggs get stuck in the grip of your shoes =| That is a job for the MythBusters to tackle!
Posted by DanielJW
@AzureSupernova: That is really, really disgusting.

I'd do like Fallout 3 and back away quickly while using my Lincolns Repeater and frag mines.

I hate hairy spiders. Something about them just makes me squeal.
