Yes, there is a huge difference but what I was calling into question was his intelligence. Or supposed lack thereof. Some on here have intimated that he's not the smartest cookie but if he's bright enough to do the intricate work he does repairing electronics surely he's bright enough to know what's right and what's wrong. He was also savvy enough to know exactly how much to charge for his wares and to be able to dodge his responsibility to refund or make good his ill deeds.There is a difference between repairing consoles and understanding morals.

Correction, I used two negatives in the same sentence, not a double negative, there is a difference. Don't try and get me into a discussion on semantics, you won't win.Talking of grammar, here's an important one - double negatives. You just used one, and in doing so you suggested that you hope he gets a desire to rape.

My apologies. I come from a time before everyone was 'differently abled' and words like mongoloid and spastic were in common parlance. These words were in everyday usage for decades and weren't considered offensive until some bleeding heart came along and decided that because these monikers made them feel embarrassed and uncomfortable being around people with disability that we all should, thus culminating in the stinking shitfest of a library of terms we have now. So before you start bleating about me using an 'offensive' term remember one thing, I didn't make the term offensive, supposed polite society did.Plus, as LeGIt said, that term is offensive and you should not use it. Now who's being really, really uncool?
