No TNT or dynamite available - but I have a contact

by Deadly Ernest In reply to aaaakkkk!!!!

who may be able to get you a Tactical Nuclear Weapon, now that would give them a blast of light they won't forget.

The question is "How much do you like, or dislike, dealing with the CIA?"

Hey, I'm only joshing, of course I'm only joking - you hope.

No matter how tempting, you can't just go around blowing people up. Okay, physically, I am sure you are capable of blowing people up, but you shouldn't. Although, some people REALLY do need to be blown up, don't they.

I guess the bottom line is this, don't **** anyone up or you'll get in trouble. And even if you didn't get caught, you might **** up people who didn't deserve it and get your Karma out of whack.

In that case

I'd go see Wile E Coyote. I understand he has a pretty good supply of Acme dynamite. I'm not sure how it will work out for you, it never seems to go well for him.

I agree with Robert heinlein in one of his statements

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Jaqui

And that statement could be applied here with a small adjustement. In the quote below, just change the word tax collector for the identifier of your choice.

In the book 'Time Enough for Love' Robert Heinlein makes the statement

"It's a crime to shoot at tax collectors, and miss."

Two others of his I like are:

"You shouldn't go around killing everyone who disagrees with you, it liable to get you talked about."


"When someone starts a sentence with the words 'It's none of my business but' you should punctuate the sentence there, politely but very firmly. No need to kill them the first time."
