I am sorry you had to go through that and I wish the world were a better place. I haven't experienced either, I have walked out on a woman who was threatening violence. I paid the police to escort me back to retrieve my belongings. I am not criticizing when I say that it may have been better for you (and potential future victims) if you had reported it. Your choices are your own and I am in no position to judge. Thus the statement is my own thoughts as to what I would suggest if asked. I don't call the cops when there are issues. I did bring one with me to ensure I was not blamed for anything when I retrieved my belongings but I had to pay his salary to get him to do so. It took a half hour but they demand a full hour minimal so it was $35, nothing major.

And even your article shows that men are more likely to inflict serious injuries or use weapons.

You must be a weightlifter. Those goalposts are heavy and difficult to move. I have no dog in the fight but I do see a lack of logic. 15 yard penalty and a loss of the down.

A wise person once pointed out, to me, that a mine that spends three million dollars on electricity is actually rightly interested in anything that provides even a one percent increase in efficiency. I think that is applicable here. The percentage may be similar but the overall number is vastly different.

I had a Mustang's 5.0L dropped into my 82 245 (not as uncommon as one might think - it is a great sleeper). It was loads of fun. I used to drink and drive and was doing so in the winter one night. The snowbank and ensuing rollover made it no longer fun. I no longer drink. I had to choose between driving and drinking. As I live many miles from anything, well, I drive. In a week I managed to ruin quite a bit. That was my motivation to stop. I probably should have quit in a rehab or a hospital as I had been drunk pretty much constantly for many years. Oh well, I lived. Additionally, about the only thing I'd hit out here would be a moose. Drunk driving is like a local sport here which I really enjoyed when I moved here. I was good at drinking, good at driving, but one day I suddenly was no longer good at doing both. It was an expensive week (technically 8 days).
