    Both sentences are written as absolutes. However, most people reading them wouldn't flip out and harp on the way they were written. They would understand that the person likely doesn't mean it in an absolute sense - but instead, in a statistically relevant sense. However, you've chosen to not give me the benefit of the doubt and yet excuse your use of an absolute. This conversation is a joke.

    You interpreted my comment one way and Ikari interpreted it another. I agree with Ikari's interpretation and not yours. It's pretty simple.

    I interprete this as meaning that the safety of public is the same whether or not the person is killed or incarcerated and that you don't need to kill the person to make the public safe.

    oh good lord more dishonesty
    exactly only YOURS is written in absolute because people doesnt have to MEAN ALL lmao
    and what was the INSTANT difference? I told you if you misunderstood mine I would gladly add some to people I didnt try to talk for pages and pages about it LOL

    I dindt CHOOSE anything nor did I flip out LMAO

    and you are still making stuff up, I took your words to mean what they said, Ikari CHOSE to GUESS what you MIGHT mean. and also Zyphlin who I think is smart and objective had almost and identical post I had post 65 and some other poster also commented and said that you werent getting what your statement actually says, so save me with the "most people" dramatics lol

    I would have given you the benefit of the doubt if you just admitted it but here you are pages later trying to act like you didnt misspeak

    but we do agree this conversation is a joke because you are in denial and also its pretty simple that you misspoke :shurg:

    I didn't misspeak. But from now on, I'm going to comment on every absolute statement you make and take it literally instead of doing what most normal people do and assume that you use such statements to mean "X happens in a statistically significant manner".

    you do what every you want and CLAIM its what "most normal people do" lol another failed insult

    I have no problem with this, the difference is IF true I will just immediately man up and admit i misspoke, was wrong or should have worded it better :shrug"

    it will take two posts maybe 3 max instead of pages and pages of nonsense
