I never said...
« on: September 10, 2011, 08:37:03 am »

Whenever I am tempted to think I have scribed something so perfectly there is no way anyone could misinterpret it, I remind myself of this 7-word sentence and its 6 different meanings.

I never said he stole the money.

Now read it again, six times.  Each time, stress a different word.

I never said he stole the money.

maybe needs to be made a "sticky" thread ... seems to have been alot of mis-interpretation of things posted on here lately.
or maybe just some very sensitive readers?

Actually I don't think anybody said the money had been stolen at all. You're just reading too much into things HP  ;) .
Experience is what you get just after you needed it.
