Then the end result would be negative for him but the solution smart, would he then be dumb for doing a smart thing to end up in jail(which would be stupid)..?

    But interesting view unlike some people in this thread who is just making unintelligent comments(and trolling). Thanks!
    No matter what the end result is, he still figure out a way to do it. That is smart. What's even more impressive is that not only was the solution clever, it was simplistic.

    Look at skiers. Who in their right mind, would want to slide down a friggin mountain covered with snow at dangerous speeds?? But we can! because some person possessed enough intelligence to come up with a zany idea like that.

    Talk about zany ideas... Look at ancient Olympics. Men competed NAKED, while running! Can you believe that? Supposedly it helps them perform better. Personally I find that hard to believe, but I guess they didn't have the luxury of spandex.

    What I'm saying is that all of these things are pretty stupid things to achieve, but to figure out a way to achieve them, that in and of itself is smart.

But on the other hand if you are just out shopping in the US and some robbers rob the store you are in and aim a gun at you to kill you and you happen to have a gun with you and kill them first, then its smart.
    In my opinion, yes.
    so killing is not always dumb. you're changing your story. yesterday I was a terrible human being for implying that any killing could ever be justified or "smart."

    gross.

    I wouldn't say irrelevant.

    I didn't say it in the first place because it didn't seem worthwhile to answer the OP with "I don't know." I was responding to a part of the discussion that I actually have a concrete opinion about.

    You're such a country bumpkin! I happen to have it on good authority that people of those times didn't all wear togas, that is a common misconception. Many people in that era wore leather breastplates, leather tassel skirts, and leather high boots.

    Not ALWAYS, but usually. You got the difference between the two ways I described self defense?
    I am not changing my story at all. I think its dumb to kill other people, the exceptions are very few.

    I said you were a terrible human for saying the following things, which "self defense" is enormously toned down from.

    Like I said, it depends why the need is there in the first place to kill in self defense.

    Rrrrr, catwoman? You just go around killing people because you think they pose a danger? Who makes you a judge of those things?

    Hmm, you ever did that? How often do you see rabid dogs anyways, are you from Fiji? You often have fleas? Ive seen roaches once, thats when I lived in Flordia. They have roaches in the Canary Islands as well, but they are outside, why would I kill it for being outside? You hunt roaches? thats just weird.

    You put "babies you dont want" alongside fleas, roaches, rabid dogs, bacteria, and agricultural pests. Wow. It was shocking enough to see that yesterday, but to see it again today I am really starting to wonder about certain things..
    Its smart to kill babies you dont want? Isnt it smarter to just use pills or something? Do you actually kill babies you dont want? I could NEVER kill a baby.. Have you ever seen a baby? How in the world can you kill such adorable creatures?

    Yes please, it would be interesting and scary to see the full list I believe.

    Well, killing passivly like you kill bacteria when brushing your teeth is not the same type of killing I am talking about. But do you really hunt rabid dogs, criminals and roaches and kill them? And you kill babies?

    again, is it "dumb" or is it "wrong?" there's a difference.

    arguable.

    I'm not from fiji but I've read to kill a mockingbird, and you have to kill those SOBs before they kill you.

    my cat gets fleas every summer, yes, and although I treat her every three weeks you do come across the occasional flea. I could just let it go, I suppose, but I usually drop it in a glass of soapy water.

    most regions in the united states have roaches, in my experience. I've lived in three different parts of the country and they all have them, and they don't just stay outside. they like kitchens. my house I live in now doesn't have any that I know of.

    I'm glad. the point was to make you wonder.

    popular opinion says yes.

    yes, I love hunting. baby hunting is not as challenging as criminal hunting, but more satisfying.
