One of the many jokes has 2 Englishmen, 2 Scotsmen, and 2 Irishmen stranded on an island. After 3 month the Scotsmen have managed to put together a still, the Irishmen are fighting each other at the beach, and the Englishmen are still waiting to be formally introduced.
In reality when it comes to bar fights the Irish and Scots are pretty even imo, and having grown up in a German town with a large UK military presence, the Brits are right up there.
Later, musicians and roadies completed that part of my education
A friend growing up in Glasgow told me on weekends there was not much else to do other than drink and fight, and if there was nobody else around, mates would fight each other.
On night at at then Casa Vega a well sized and inebriated pro footballer said twice to my Scottish friend; "So you are Irish, right?" Gary replied "No I am Scottish," shortly after the third time the guy was out cold on the floor. The whole thing (including the Glasgow kiss) took max 5 seconds.
Its often the medium sized wiry guys you have to look out for, and the scariest are those crazy enough not to care what happens to themselves
P.S. The nastiest variants of the Glasgow kiss involve razor blades or barbed wire sewn into the edge of head gear / caps.
