"an invention is the start of something"
LOL, once again you are lost. An idea is the start of something. Plenty of people get the idea to invent something, like a printing press or a
flying machine, just as plenty of people playing a game of basketball have the idea of shooting a basket, but the idea of shooting a basket and
actually putting the ball through the hoop are two different things. Plenty of people tried to invent a printing press, probably the first attempt
was not too long after the first book was written, as far back as BC, just as the idea for building a flying machine had been around for along time,
and attempted many times before the deed was ever accomplished.
The same goes for the printing press.
Sure, you can smack somebody because you think they insulted you, usually someone you are sure you can take, but chances are you keep your mouth shut
when it is the other way around, or you think the other guy might give as good as he gets. So you smack some punk around, and he has to take it. But
later on, you might find that he will seek his revenge, and you turn the corner and there he is with all his friends or some kind of equalizer and at
that point in time, you might realize that it would have been better to throw and insult rather than a fist in the first place.
Isn't this how gang banging gets going in the first place, and even wars. You have to join some gang, because otherwise it isn't safe to walk down
the streets, cause if you are not part of a gang, then you are always the punk, cause you are always outnumbered.
Yeah, that is some really great logic. How many people get killed or wind up in prison because they had to react violently to an insult?
