159. This from one who cannot answer ONE simple question.

If you were contemplating killing someone would you honestly use a gun or a car? In fact, let's get your gutless appeal to premeditation as a factor out of the way. if your car is in the parking lot with the gun in the glovebox and you just found out your best friend was shtooking your wife, beat your children, stole your FAVORITE gun, embezzled your retirement, got you fired, framed you for child molestation and hired a hit man to assassinate you and was currently stalking you through the halls of your workplace with the immediate intent of killing you would you:

1) Get your car and drive it through up the stairs and through the aisles of the building to run him down like the dog he is

or

2) Get your gun

Now I am sure you would argue that number 1 is a perfectly reasonable choice, but I think I'd go with number 2 there.

Now about your worries that I cannot use your words to deduce your beliefs, that only happens if your beliefs don't match your words. Personally, I find that only happens for untrustworthy people (cf our earlier conversation about trust for the implications).
