System froze up while I was editing - last NBA analogy from below
Venezuelan gang kidnaps me just for fun. Take me to an Olympic high dive. "son, dive in and we will let you go". But it will hurt like heck and I may get hurt. "don't jump in and all 4 of us will shoot you". No thanks. All 4 draw their guns and point at me. OK. I will walk up to the top. "now just jump". Don't tell me what to do. (guns are cocked). Look guys, can't you let me dive from a shorter board. "no. This amuses us". How do I know you won't do this again in 7 years? It is humiliating. "you don't. Look. Jump or die". No one tells me what to do. I close my eyes and hope they don't actually shoot.
