    I don't think it's that bad, especially when you contrast it with the amount of money our government regularly steals from us.

    I know, I just thought it was funny when in relation to your avatar. As for the government stealing from us, I agree that they steal a lot from us..but I still couldn't justify stealing money from someone like that. Who knows how poor they are and if that money causes a real setback for them. I do it because I would like to think that someone would do the same for me if I lost my wallet. It's nice to know you can count on the humanity of people.

    I don't try to justify it. I know it's wrong, but that's just the way the world works sometimes. At least I'd let him keep his identity...

    But would you help him find his sexual identity?

    I bet Ethereal would try to get an extra $50 for giving the dude the honor of slobbing on his knob.

    Re: If you found a wallet on the street...

    I've been on the finding and losing side a few times. I know what it's like losing a wallet and it's no fun. Regardless, I simply could not live with myself if I took something that did not belong to me. It's that simple. So I would return the wallet to the owner with every dollar intact.

    I have a few lost wallet stories, so I'll bore you with one right now. Back in my university days, my wallet was stolen from my purse in a bar. I was irked, but what could I do? So I had to take the painful steps (*ahem* pre-internet days!) to get all of my cards and ID back.

    Queue 12 years later, I get a package in the mail. It's the wallet. No money, but the ID is all there (not that I needed it). I had lived at various addresses in all those 12 years, but yet, it found it's way back to me. I have no idea who sent it, but they must have had an interesting time tracking me down. I thought it was very cool, even though I had no more use for it.

    If I saw it lying on the ground in a gay neighborhood, I would kick it all the way to the city limits before bending over to pick it up.
