Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right
I've always thought of this statement as complete crap, but I've developed a theory to support my arguement I would like to see if you can point out any flaws to prove me wrong(not talking from my ass).
First off, double negatives; in the manner the phrase is spoken in "wrong" can likely be replaced with "negative," anywho, if I say "I will never not take the trash out," it means that I will always take the trash out, because if I never won't be taking the trash out. Anyway, that's just some early frosting on the cake, it doesn't do much to argue per se.
I think of fights like math problems. (Police/Bi Polar people don't count)
Multiplication: To negate a fight, you need to multiply what wrong has already happened.
You steal my TV, I cut off your arm. You're terrified/incapacitated.
Division: To negate a fight, you need to cut what has been done to you.
You yell at me, I say "Calm down," no offence is taken.
Addition and subtraction is where things get iffy.
Subtraction: To negate a fight, you need to do the opposite of what is done per se.
You punch me in the mouth, I bake you a cake, a few guilty chuckles are thrown out no further offence is taken.
Now, the funny thing about subtraction is if the second number is if the second number is smaller than the first, my only defense is that your "opposite" wasn't good enough.
Addition: This provokes fights, you contribute small remakes of what is done.
You bunch me, I punch you, and so on and so forth.
Ahem, twas dictated but not read, small errors may be around.
