So. For Thanksgiving, I thought of something I thought was a bit funny.
We have our genetically mutated turkey. It has teeth in its beak, along with acidic saliva. Not to mention it's five times the size of a normal turkey.
On the other side, is a 'pilgrim'. He is in his prime and good health. He is armed with a blunderbuss (of course a couple of horns for it, along with rounds) - which he learned to use quite well when hunting with his father.
The arena? A colonial city street.
I'd like to say that the pilgrim will win, which he could. But a single hit from that acid spit is going to be too much to run away from it. If he was able to duck around corners until shooting the turkey into a bloody pulp, pilgrim wins.
Let's just assume that the Turkey's body has the same type of average dimensions of a human.
4x1x1 = 4 square feet = 29 pounds.
7.29 pounds per sqfoot.
20x5x5 = 500 square feet = x
7.29 x 500 = x = 3,645 pounds.
So this things weighs 3+ tons, and assuming square-cube law isn't in play, it's going to have strength to match it. Now, once I abandon it having human dimensions, I imagine its weight might gain or lose a bit, but nothing that'll make too much of a difference (lol, hopefully). It'll be about 20 feet long (abandoning human dimensions), but its movements will be pretty quick for its size. Honestly I see this as either being a tie (they both kill each other when they get close to each other- Turkey scratches Pilgrim, Pilgrim gets a close lethal shot in, Turkey falls on Pilgrim and acid drips on Pilgrim) or being in favor of the Turkey a bit, since the Blunderbuss isn't the easiest to dodge or aim with, or the easiest to reload for that matter.

Fay: Shit, I think I ended up deleting rust a while back because I'm a dumb who doesn't know how to check the shout box. Thought rust was a bot since they didn't have any posts. I'm becoming more than a bot slayer. I'm becoming a monster. Garrgblaeeeehhhh

glent: Hello! I'm new here and I come from Brazil . This forum is active ?

Fay: Hey! This forum is pretty dead/not active unfortunately. No one other than myself really logs on anymore, except maybe one or two old members from time to time.

Fay: Note: However many million years it takes for Gantz: O to get released on DVD and subtitled. When it does: make a thread about it.

Fay: Just realized glent may actually be a bot in disguise using the shout box. It didn't spam anywhere else or have any ads on its profile or signature though, so leaving it around should be okay, no idea which new (once in a blue moon) user to trust anymore.

Haloninjaman808: Yo, Fay, if you ever do see this, give me admin if you can.

nosferatu: Ended up here after binge reading the manga today. Done at 6AM! No regrets. That was one hell of a ride. Will be waiting for Gantz: O. Cheers!

Fay: Haha, that's awesome. Glad another person got to experience the manga. I've been meaning to re-read the manga myself. Now that I'm done with college I can find the time to do that. Also yeah Gantz: O looks pretty cool.

Fay: You can also post/comment on any topic you want it's just no one but myself will probably answer back. If you want to talk about the manga while it's still fresh in your mind or anything about it, I'll oblige you. I was really addicted to Gantz once

UlrichAcheronNacht: GANTZ AND BERSERK ARE MY LIFE, FAYFAY. I BLAME YOU FOR MY BERSERK ADDICTION.

Fay: Haha, I'd say it's a fine thing to be addicted to, at least.
