From what I understand, you are right: she did not have any children. But, do you have to have a baby if you have sex? The Clinton/Lewinski affair reportedly did not. Oh, wait; oral sex is not sex, right?

As for your math and six shooters, I'm sorry, I don't get your number:

If you re-spin before every trigger pull, each player only has a 1 in 6 chance of getting the bullet, or a 5 in 6 chance of not getting the bullet. Thus, if you re-spin, it is possible to go all the way through a cycle with no one dying. If you do not re-spin, someone is dead (or at least has a bullet in their head) at the end of the first round. 1/6, 1/5, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and then, well, "I don't want to play this anymore."

And, of course, it is possible that the guy who has that 1/6 chance in fact gets the bullet right then and there. Game over.

Don't get me wrong, Ethan. I'm not belly aching because today's society makes sex illegal one day and legal the very next. (Eighteen years old shy by one day versus eighteen years old even.) Or, whatever cutoff age you may select. I'm just pointing out that often, society's rules are not good for the individual. Wear a helmet on a motorcycle. Why? it's MY head. Life is full of risk. Simply taking a drink of water can be deadly. Should we stop? Leaving an airplane without a parachute from 30,000 feet up would seem to be rather lethal once you came to that sudden stop at ground level. But, a Jugoslavenski Aerotransport hostess survived a fall from that high on 26 January 1972. Should everyone try it?

I suppose to summarize, there's a difference between malum in se versus malum prohibitum. I've written about this before, but consider:

Why is it wrong for ME (just me) building or modifying my house without a license, or copyright infringement or even illegal drug use? What about prostitution or weapon possession? Even hitchhiking is illegal in many places. How is it malum in se? How about resisting arrest? The cops erroneously try to arrest you for something you know you did not do. So you complain and refuse to be handcuffed. That's malum prohibitum.

You're going to say (just like my parents preach to me), you have to have laws to live by.

Sure. I see it's wrong to kill someone for no reason. (As opposed to killing someone for a legal reason.) That's malum in se. For the most part, I agree with those.

But forcing me to put a motorcycle helmet on?
