Or....you can burn him twice. But then you go to prison, lose your profession, and might end up killing yourself. Not a recommended course of action, but you know, some people roll that way.

"Paul Addis burned the Man and then jumped in front of a train, hurr durr"

Sure, it sucked, but you try keeping it together after your three best friends give a guy a ride home from a bar and he repays them by raping and murdering them all.

Sorry if I offended Maladroit. I knew Paul had a lot of issues, and although I think burning the man early without notice was dangerous, I also think that the harsh prosecution didn't help the guy. I don't intend to mock the guy, I think his life, which wasn't going well prior, got near impossible after the conviction. Too soon, too soon.

I for one, love the snark. Except on the 'Introduce yourself' thread. Here kitty kitty. We really shouldn't run em off before we get a chance to stick their feet in walnut shells full of Crisco and set em on the griddle.

I was in media mecca last year when Trylo came looking for the wifi because he heeded to rescue ePlaya. It crashed and he was in a bee costume and it seemed perfectly natural.
