I was really tough on myself when I missed a payment. I broke my pinky to show myself that I wasn't kidding around.

>Would you sacrifice universal healthcare for the sake of linquistic

Linguini marinalliza? Sure, why not. I love Italian food.

>Would that make you morally responsible for as many

The only deaths I would hold myself morally responsible for are the skunks who drive in their cars from New Jersey, park on my block, and cause noise pollution with their fucking car alarms. Once we establish the dictatorship of the proletariat, all traffic into NYC will have to be on foot.

>If I truly believed that your stance was the most productive, I would be

>If Mark has enough do-ray-me

>use of those funds.
