Subject: RE: BS: I Love this Idea
I am no scientist but, I think, have intelligence enough to figure things out like evidence versus belief.

There is very strong evidence that if you kick a piece of shit it creates a stink and gets your shoes dirty. My belief is that this phrase, while hackneyed, is a good analogy for what is happening here. There is no evidence that that shit is aware of the damage it is doing to peoples shoes and delicate nostrils or if it is doing any good for the local fauna (last bit is so I don't get in trouble with Steve!). My belief is that peoples shoes and nostrils would remain unassailed from that quarter if they stopped kicking said shit. I am trying my best to give it up and, to date, instances of my footwear and nasal passages being attacked have reduced considerably.

On the balance of probabilities I would highly recommend other people try it. Trouble is that, as the shit is blissfully unaware that it is no longer being kicked, it continues to try and get up peoples noses.

C'est la vie as we say in Yorkshire...
