"just how does one do that "royally"?" With style and vigor. # "anyway, you're right about the contract though one could question whether or not the contract stipulates if one's back side should be kicked for failure to fulfill one's part of the deal, unless the purpose of the contract was to preven...

i wish people would read what i post

i was pretty clear: 'if the best a body can do is...'

if you can write sonnets, write sonnets; if the best you can do is a grocery list, write grocery lists

never suggested folks 'ought' to write stupid or wrong, only that folks gotta go with what they got

If the best a body can do is 'Ure wright.' Then, if they have sumthin' worth sayin', I'm good with it.

Do people need contracts? Yeah, they do. Here's the thing: Scott's bacteria is just bio-automation, largely predictable; a man, on the other hand, can 'choose' (to honor his word or break it). Scott's bacteria is reliable; a man sometimes isn't. So: when Lou breaks his word to Stan, Stan -- after ro...

There are utter idiots who spell right and wise folks who can't spell for shit.

Bottom line (again): I can work with 'kat' for 'cat' but can't do diddly with 'dog' for 'cat'.

"Henry and Gaffo, I still don't get it."

Seems to me: you got a pretty good handle on it.

"To murder is to deliberately kill a conscious individual with malice aforethought. To have malice is not to have respect. Therefore murder is wrong. ...by definition."

"So, tell me, does anyone 'deserve it'? If so, why?"

yep

different folks deserve it for different reasons (but that's between me and them)

-----

there's killin' as a defense of self, others, and property: not murder

there's killin' for gain: murder

there's killin' cuz some folks just plainly need to be dead: murder

I endorse the first & third.
