I'm sorry if you took it that way. It's not what I meant. I told that story to make it very apparent that I don't usually want
to hit people. I am not that guy. I have been hit pretty recently and just laughed it off. I would feel just as bad if I happened to hit Steve and put him in the hospital as I did when I kicked my drunken roomate and did the same thing to him. I didn't mean to hospitalize him, but that doesn't really mean that he didn't deserve to be hit. Steve, had he done something that got me this pissed off in my presence, would probably have been hit. It is out of character for me, thats it. I wouldn't go through some fancy storytelling phase if I wanted to just come out and threaten Steve with hospitalization or death. I would have just said it. That is not what I meant. If it gets me banned, I've already said I understand why. I can see how what I said could be taken the way you did. I apologize for the misunderstanding.
