( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
lengthy missive condensed:

what an asshole. still, sometimes it seems like there's more of them than of us. avoiding bad situations is an awfully good skill to have (even if you know you could take a guy, no prob). i've talked my way out of a potential disaster before -- i think if i had weapons, i'd be tempted to use them. case in point: somewhat recent story here in CA, nice man with family is asleep when house is broken into by burglars with guns. nice man has gun to protect himself and his family. In the firefight that follows, he kills a burglar but is killed himself, and wife is injured as well. (Worth saving his possessions from theft? I really don't think so)

Maybe the best protection is to forgo material wealth, avoid drunken clods, and always use the buddy system.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
