Rules? In a knife fight? No rules!

I’m using it as a metaphor.


There are rules. Then there are no rules. It’s never fair.

This cryptic message was brought to you by the numbers 4 and 7.

    Fair often depends on your point of view. A man’s gotta do…

    The big guy was looking dangerous.

    Number 4 only works when you want it to.

    As for number 7? Part I sums it up; but deploying Part II? That really would be below the belt.

    Thank you Butch. Most insightful.
    I think (maybe) that I was trying to say
    1)It’s life and everyone gets hurt – it’s just a matter of when.
    2)When things look impossible and the rules are against you it’s not always the end. Find the other way.
    3) Who ARE those guys?

  3. Butch says:

    1) I disagree – didn’t you notice the line about not fighting? If we accept your premise that hurt is unavoidable, we might well rage less about it when it arrives. That dumb acceptance can be seductive when there’s a lot of hurt about; why waste precious energy railing against it when it will come whatever we do? But submission to the inevitability of hurt can also make us less careful about our part in inflicting it. All part of that ‘it’s going to happen anyway’ pov. Like my namesake, I’ll defend myself when the chips are down; but fundamentally, I believe hurt doesn’t have to happen and I will play my part to make that true. Aim higher.

    2) I agree. We should never give up looking for the answer. And if you see a friend struggling with their search, when you know what it is, help them out. The ‘give a man a fish/teach a man to fish’ has value; but as teachers, we recognise that sometimes, our pupils need a little direction to get back on track.

    3) Dunno. Does it matter? Their Movember efforts were impressive, though.

    Perhaps we should close this puzzle with Number 5.
