    Yep. Nation of pussies.

    My friend got in a slight fender-bender a few months back. Small dent, not worth making a big deal about, the other driver apologized and that was the end of it. My friends daughter, 12, is upset and disgusted with her mother because she didn't file a lawsuit. Her daughter is still pissed off three months later.

    The concept of forgiveness is beyond her. Sad.

    Just hang around this place for 5 minutes and you will come to the conclusion that the world would be a better place if more people got their ass kicked.

    I got spanked five times in my childhood, I can still remember what each spanking was for and to this day I don't cross those lines.

    In highschool, my friend got punched in the face by an African American guy. It was lunch, my friend (white, rich, racist) saw this Pimped out Camero driving up the school parking lot, total pimp-mobile too. My friend pointed and laughed at the car, the guy was out of the car and in my friend's face in two seconds. Then - BAM - right below the right eye, it happened so fast and my friend was apologizing as the guy got back in his ride and drove away.

    I learned a lot in those five seconds:

    Don't disrespect people.

    Never laugh and point at starngers

    If you're going to be an asshole (or racist asshole) then be ready to fight.

    I would say that violence is a quality educational tool. Natural, organic violence and not systematic violence.
