well, when we swear on something as silly as cd's and flutes, we're not mocking anything or anyone either. and we could make you say well, would you blow [insert loved one's name here] brains out if you're lying.
either way...suicide isn't funny to me, and swearing isn't funny to you. so why don't we just agree to disagree and not expect to MAKE anyone to do anything?
i'm not trying to be a .bitch, so i'm sorry if i'm coming off that way. but this is JUST an internet game. i think we're all taking arbitrary semantics and putting way more meaning to them than necessary...in my opinion.

See, here's the thing with swearing... it's not totally fool-proof. Look at what Higgi said this round, and realize he is (most unfortunately) not going to make a human torch out of himself at the Inforoo brunch. You can only trust what's being sworn on as much as you can trust the person doing the swearing.
It is Sunday night. Phish just finished playing to their adoring crowd. People start walking to their cars to leave. Among them is Bek . She is visibly drunk, bumping into people here and there and tripping. She seem to be walking in circles, looking for her car. Bek attempts to ask people for help but is stunted by her slurred speech. She is so drunk that she doesn't notice the person following her. Finally, she finds her car. She get inside, and starts it up. KABOOM! It explodes into the air in a fiery inferno! The person who was following her smiles, after walking away from the scene. Someone must not like people drinking and driving.
All we have to believe with is our senses, the tools we use to perceive the world: our sight, our touch, our memory. If they lie to us, then nothing can be trusted. And even if we do not believe, then still we cannot travel in any other way than the road our senses show us; and we must walk that road to the end.
