Rules are stupid
Rules are stupid. The 'rule of thumb' has been said to derive from the belief that English law allowed a man to beat his wife with a stick so long as it is was no thicker than his thumb! There is a rule that states "i" before "e" except after "c", so wouldn't "science" be spelled wrong? In Seattle, 'you may not carry a concealed weapon that is over six feet in length'. 364 days of the year, parents impose a rule on their kids about never accepting candy from a stranger. Then on Halloween, the rule goes totally out the window and the kids are encouraged to take candy from strangers. As I said, rules are stupid.
