Temporal confusion is often a side affect typical with returning to consciousness.

Would you like it in the neck? It'll probably hurt like hell, and you might get bubble hands.

At least with bubble hands I won't be able to type, thus not embarrassing myself again!

Hell, even Kirk at 50ish beats a Klingon in hand-to-hand combat. Kills him, in fact.

They should've called it STAR TREK: KIRK'S A PUNK NOW.

To be fair it wasn't one person. And he was kicking butt until the multiple bullies got the upper hand. Watching a different movie are we?

Not familiar with Romulans either apparently. There was a scene where the Romulan was holding Kirk up with one hand. Obviously still not a match.

Now I know you're just kidding.

Vulcans are also actually stronger than humans.

I was disappointed Kirk never dropped kicked anyone in this movie!!

Just kidding, I can do without the drop kick, but really, he could have taken out ANY Romulan with it!!

He probably hadn't learned the move yet. Bet that's in Starfleet Basic Defense 101.
