In an interview that appeared a few years ago on the promotional tour for Taken 2, Liam Neeson was talking about jobs he'd done in a previous life, including a stint spent as a teacher. 

While we all know that his career ended up on a totally different path, Neeson told Dan Le Batard (and his dad) that he had spent about two years imparting knowledge to students, and that one particularly bad day on the job sticks out in his mind: when a student pulled a knife on him. 

According to Neeson's account of the incident, the guy was 15-years-old (and a "big kid" too) and he was trying to get him to settle down, but he was refusing. As a result, he told him he had to stand outside, at which point he produced a knife, and Neeson's first instinct was to punch him because he's a god damn bad ass and he felt threatened. 

While the interview is from a while back, a Reddit user stumbled across it and shared it with the world in case they had previously missed it, or forgotten about it for some reason. We feel like it's the type of thing that you'll always remember. In fairness to the knife-wielding kid though, he clearly had no idea who he was dealing with.
