-I wonder how many lawyers have said that same thing in how many lawsuits in how many courtrooms, and been wrong? Anyway, if you want a rational judge, you're looking at something like a 50-50 chance in this game.-

-If I'm wrong, though, so are you. I'm using your reasoning. So either you don't win or this hole in the rules starts off another SOE. You know, I'm okay with either? Sure, SOEs are a pain, but better that we fix it than that we have undefined values, you know?-
