    You can take what you want and give them the remainder. You can even decide to give them nothing. The other person has no input into your decision.

    How much money do you allocate to the other person?

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Right now, $100,000 is a lot of money to a lot of people in this country.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    You can buy a decent house and car in many parts of the country with $100,000.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I think it is more akin to most people.

When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns.

    Re: How generous are you? (Part I)

    This is probably much less difficult than I'm making it out to be but I want to assume it's not a word trick question and I was simply given a choice to give some, or none, of the money to the other person. If true then I would give 50% without hesitation. I would feel good about myself and I'm sure the other person would too. However, I would leave immediately not wanting to know what the other person is going to do with their share.

    Interesting...exactly half of us would give exactly half of the money to the other person.

    So basically what you said is that though you "want it all" you're "giving it all"???
