Why does Rick G have his LP thong caught up in his butt about sharing? I'll tell you why.
First of all, "sharing" is a communist concept. The communists who thought this up were smart folks. They knew they could exploit this idea by taking and not giving. Who's manning the cash register to tally the takes and gives?
Is sharing wrong? Not by any means and in fact sharing information has led to all of our civilization's successes. Anyone that knows me knows that I share anything and everything that I know. It becomes wrong when the scale is not balanced. The Soviet Union, Cuba, China and North Korea learned this lesson early and used it to the benefit of the powers-that-be for the last half century. The common man in these countries never benefited from this unbalanced distribution of "wealth".
But taking information (or anything for that matter) and not giving anything in return makes you a thief.
That is why I'm pissed that a certain person who uses the word "sharing" as a predominant word in their vocabulary has not shared anything with me and yet wins our state lottery more often than me on the prediction board but has yet to divulge how they are doing it. Oddly enough, they are still asking for "sharing".
So this boy here is not being a commie anymore. Long live capitalism, individual initiative and honesty forever. If I see that inane phrase "would you share..." again on the forums, I'll take my complaint out of the blog and into the forums and I'll be pointing fingers and naming names.
If you're going to share my pot you damned well better share the toilet paper as well.
