    Sorry, kinda switched lanes there without signalling, didn't I? :oops:

    Yeah, it was a joint Canadian/South African production. Kinda fun, kinda weird. Had its moments. Another one-season wonder, unfortunately. :)

    Thing knows what I mean. Most normal people (without psychotic disorders) know black and white things such as murder are wrong. But other thing such as holding a door for a women ect are taught to us by our parents/society.

    Hmm, SF, might check it out then. I like small-medium bazuzus though, big ones hold no great interest for me. :P

    Exactly, but obviously even killing becomes complicated, what constitutes murder vs justified changes wildly from culture to culture - but everyone agrees that it does in fact have to be justified somehow.

    Precisely. We know murder is wrong on a instinctual level, but how we are nutured/society we live in goes a long way on dictating wheather we think it is acceptible in certain cases for self defence/death penalty ect...

    Some people don't even eat plants that require the plant being killed to eat (root veggies for example).

    Murdering a woman who gives you attitude for trying to open a door for her is always justifiable, IMHO. :D
