That's better than I can say!
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

I think it should be taken into consideration that I have never actually* replaced pigpooballs. I just like to make my opinion of it known on occasion. Much like a sibling who smokes, I will occasionally remind them that they are slowly killing themselves with increased chances of lung/throat/mouth cancer, but I will do nothing about it.

*that I remember

Why do people keep misjudging me? I am far too lazy to actually do anything mod-like.

... wrote:Lives saved by Batman: B
Lives directly taken by killer in murder of Batman's parents: 2
Lives directly saved by killer in said murder: -2
Lives saved by killer via murder of Batman's parents: (B)+(-2)=B-2
If you don't think that's what the comic means... well, Zach does. And we do. So go over to the pig testicles and lick off the shit.
I would say that saving -2 people doesn't actually make sense.
If lives taken = -lives saved then we can't actually deduce that it's only 2 people (since we are not talking about this single murder, otherwise it would not make sense to count all the people Batman saves outside of the murder)

Once again, if The killers have saved B-2 people and Batman has saved B people then Batman has saved 2 more people than the killer.
If all B people can be attributed to the after effect of Batman and the only event where this deviation occurs is during the murder then you are telling me that Batman has saved 2 more people than the killer in this event. Neither Bruce nor the killer saved the parents that night, neither did they "negative" save them (whatever that would mean) so the number doesn't make sense.

The comparison would make sense in order to justify the murder, but this little equation "B-2" is flawed.
