What type of crack are you on Dean? Your analogy is a mockery of the whole
discussion <if there still needs to be one>.  It's more akin to your dog
deficating on your neighbors lawn - it IS your neighbors lawn and it IS
your dog - 1st time comes the obligatory phone call "is this your sh*t"
but you deal with it,  2nd comes the shout over the fence "clean up your
sh*t" - but YOU still have to deal with it, FINALLY you pick up the object
and hurl it over the fence to your neighbor's picture window screaming
"EAT SH*T" - the only positive thing about the whole experience is that
you really learn that it's better to know your sh*t.

Whose responsibility is YOUR dog - and if you don't curb your dog, and I
have to, I will definately make sure you do not enjoy and want to
avoid the experience in the future.

As far as rape - you need to switch groups - the binaries are killin you -
try for a little relief
