    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.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    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.
