Proving A Point

Even though no one likes living in an institution I am going to voluntarily commit myself to the sacred institution of marriage. Reading the news I came across this little story and it made me think, "Just how far am I willing to go." It also helped understand some advice I keep getting from the men that have been married for a while and it took this story for it to really sink in. Now I know that, "yes dear," is the answer to most arguments. So from now on when I get into an argument with Mrs. Crazy I am not going to try and prove a point I am simply going to agree.

A marriage-minded man ran naked through his neighborhood, trying to show his hesitant girlfriend that taking risks is important. He got more than he bargained for when he ended up being chased and shot at. "Just when you thought you had heard everything," Ann Arbor police Detective Sgt. Jim Stephenson told The Ann Arbor News. The couple was discussing marriage early Wednesday when the woman said she wasn't sure if she was ready, according to Ann Arbor police reports. The man responded that taking risks is an important part of life and, to prove his point, jumped out of a first-floor window and ran naked across the street. Before he could return, he spotted a couple walking and hid in some bushes to avoid them. A 28-year-old man noticed the bushes rustling and bare feet underneath, then drew a .40-caliber handgun and ordered the naked man out, police said. The naked suitor ran away, but the armed man gave chase and threatened to shoot, police said. The gunman fired a shot and the naked man fell to the ground, suffering minor injuries. A resident called police, who arrested the gunman on charges of aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon. He was taken to the Washtenaw County jail but released following further investigation, police Sgt. Patrick Hughes told The Associated Press. The naked man was not arrested and didn't want to pursue charges, Hughes said.

Are they sure he wasn't running from getting married? That's sounds a little more likely.

One time when I was in college some of us were walking and there was at least six inches of snow on the ground and it was still coming down. Then we saw a guy running in it completely naked. Turns out he took acid for the first time in his life and he had gotten away from his friends. He had to be taken to the hospital
