( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Well, I see our old friend Cop is back. Its actually somewhat fascinating to see how trolls can pull people into prolonged and meaningless debates. These threads remind me of one of my moments of clarity.

I once had an old dog that I raised from a pup. Later I adopted a four year old dog. The two were very competitive, and each apparently saw himself as the alpha male. When I let them out in the morning they would squeeze through the door shoulder to shoulder, neither one willing to let the other go first. One day they dashed out into the yard side by side and stopped on either side of a lone dandelion. One hiked his right leg, the other his left, and they drenched that dandelion for what seemed like an eternity, neither willing to stop first. Of course this incident didn't settle anything between them, but in that moment I grasped the true meaning of the the phrase "pissing contest".
