The OP is back. What a coincidence. He left just before S.S. came here, and he re-appears just after she left.
...well spotted....worth a thought...

Kasprov jr gets it. Welcome to reality.
I also love how the girls pretend they hate it as if that wasn't their intention.
By his reasoning, if I get a gun, go to the zoo, and shoot all the animals, that isn't my fault and doesn't count as animal cruelty, because humans have been conditioned by evolution to kill animals for food.
Indeed, it depends on how determinist you want to get about this :) "Don't punish me, I can't control who I am!"
And actually I'm not sure if it's easy to resolve this issue -- how far can you go to rid yourself of responsibility. After all, if you're mentally insane for instance you are treated more leniently. My intuition tells me that somehow, at some extreme, the argument has to break down (yet it's not easy to see the "how").
I have a thought on this idea.
I don't care how insane you are, or how unwitingly you do it. If someone was to go on a killing spree for example, I do not care if they are aware of what they are doing, they should be capped.
If you are a theif, I don't care if you can control it or not, you should be punished.
If someone fights you, you don't say "well thats your instinct so its okay"
Can't stand the mamby pamby well little johnny has this so its okay no matter what he does.
Actions speak for themselves, and controlable or not, all actions have consequences
ahahahahahahahah so stupid
