TGGR,
Likes his women in their 30s, rather than 18 year old kids.


More experience does tend to equal higher quality.  Although there is a breaking point.

Quote from: LMNO
Well, I have to say that with the current legal system being what it is, I can't allow myself the black and white certainty to trust that a person admitting guilt is actually guilty of the precise crime that they admitted to.

Nor that they had all the facts in what their punishment entailed.

Nor that they didn't admit to guilt under threats or coersion.

Hell, I know Law & Order isn't very realistic, but even they represent the system as flawed and easily manipulated.


These are all true, to a point.  I just can't see someone admitting guilt to a cop, a judge, and a national TV broadcast and being innocent.
Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

There's a difference to acknowledging that an action is currently considered illegal by community standards, and admitting guilt.

Until she hits 60 and then a "break" is probably a certainty.  Unless you excercise some restraint of course.   8)

Then I hope you have the sense to call a lawyer, if you ever get in trouble.

Remember Richard Jewell?  THe first guy they accused of the Atlanta Olympics bombing?

They asked him HOW he would do it, IF it were him doing it.

He told them, and then they said he confessed.

Turns out later on that it was a Xtian screwball by the name of Eric Rudolf.

No, but it is true that some restraint would have prevented the whole thing.  Thus why he shouldn't complain.  He had the ability to avoid the "inconvenience" he found himself in.  He, unwisely, chose not to.

Meh.  The safest course is to follow the "half your age + 7" rule.


If you are 20, then she should be no younger than 20/2 = 10 + 7 = 17 years old.

If you are 36, 36/2 = 18 + 7 = 25 years old.

Etc.

Emily Post PWNS JOO!

In Jewell's case that is correct.  He did get a raw deal.

And don't forget, the media is impartial and non-judgemental.

Actually, he was the benefactor of the backlash on that one.

He's a Sherrif's deputy now, and has been decorated for heroism since (involving a burning car, IIRC)

Turns out he's the real deal.
