Thanks for the video josephpalazzo ! Very interesting, I never realized why the jerks of the world could be so arrogant about the horrible things they do. OJ was a good example, he always has a proud smirkey look on his face when he talks about butchering his wife and Goldman.  :cry:  Solitary

In some cases, it is important to lie. A lie can be something where the safety of yourself and others is kept. Most of these casses nobody is at win without somebody losing.

When I was living in Japan, I came across a palm reader.  He had practiced his "art" in the U.S. and spoke excellent English.  He told me that doctors wives had more money then they knew what to do with.  So, he let them give it to him.  

I really think he thought what he was doing was good.  He was making the "rich" doctor's wives feel good and "letting" them give him money.  He wore a fur coat and had diamond rings on his hands.  Yeah, just like how pimps are portrayed on TV, minus the hat though.  So, he must have been doing pretty well.  He also seemed to think he really could read the future by reading someone's palm.  Takes all kinds, doesn't it.   :rolleyes:

He really made you believe that he thought that he could read the future by reading someone's palm?  Then he was really good, since that's the whole trick - making you believe that he believes.
