If so, he needs to look up the definition of "gallant". But I think he was probably one of those jackasses who thinks there's some merit in dying with glory rather than running away and staying alive.

Some yahoo yelled at me, saying 'GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH', and I thought, "I'm feeling generous today.  Why not BOTH?"

...anyone who's dying deserves to cry, piss, shit their pants, whatever.  Someone else's notion of what that should look like is just bloviations of an idiot who hasn't been there.

It was a different time. Back when people still were programmed with ideals that they would fight and die for... rather than our modern society where we're programmed to think the whole thing is a pile of shite.

umm, there are no shortage of idiots who still believe that ideals are worth dying for. And you don't have to think that "the whole thing is a pile of shite" to think that staying alive is valuable.

THIS. I bet 99% of the people who believe in "dying gallantly" would actually shit themselves on the spot when confronted with their own horrifying and painful death. Unfortunately, that will probably remain academic for most of them.

Once I defended my wallet against two attempted muggers which had only a few pieces of id, no credit cards and only five dollars.
Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

Sounds like something I would do. But I am crazy as hell, what's your excuse?

I was young and the hassle of having to reissue four ids (military, state, school, libary) probally was a strong factor. That and he didn't have a knife

so, in other words, you weren't trying to die gallantly. And your wallet is not an ideal.

Isn't defending ones property an ideal? Even if its junk

Besides he could have had something...

It only counts if he had something with which to violently removes bits of you from yourself. And in order to die gallantly you have to...die. You are alive.

no, defending one's property is just that, defending one's property. If, rather than mugging you he had attempted to tell you that you worshipped the wrong god, then you would have been fighting for an ideal. Also, you can't be trying to die gallantly unless you're actually going to die, or at least are utterly convinced that you are.

During finals week I survived almost entirely on convenience store fried chicken and jelly beans.

In my defense, that convenience store has the best fried chicken, and they were JellyBelly beans.

I think I was dieting or something.
