tallen702: this is in England, then no, it doesn't take much courage because you don't have the right to defend yourself over there
JuggleGeek: What courage? The idiot you are making into a hero breaks into a house when nobody is home. He does it in England, where the homeowner isn't allowed to own a gun, and wouldn't be allowed to do a damn thing even if he did catch the burglar. And when he does happen to get caught and arrested, the farking judge won't even lock him up.That sounds like "Commit all the crimes you want, there is no risk". I can't see why any courage is needed.notmtwain: Admit it. If there were no possible consequence, you would do it. Therefore, you are afraid of consequences and must be a coward.I'm sure this will shock you, because you sound like a dishonest scumbag at heart, but some of us are honest.
oldfarthenry: maxalt: In my house your "huge amount of courage" would be splattered all over the walls and I would sue your estate for the clean-up costs and anything else I could dream up.Be honest - you were doing curls with a 15 lb. free-weight while typing that - weren't you?
BraveNewCheneyWorld: Atheists believe that you're exactly the same after death as you were before you were born.
notmtwain: What's wrong with saying that it takes courage?
MythDragon: So you can be brave and break in to my house, I am gonna be a coward and shoot you in the face
had98c: courage - mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty (according to m-w.com).I'd say a burglar fits that definition (the mental strength, obviously not the moral, but it says OR).The problem is that people seem to only want to assign courage to people doing good things. In the same manner that people assign cowardice to bad actions that aren't in fact cowardice. It just makes them feel smugly superior to assign that designation to actions they don't like.
