|Winterous||Well I imagine it would have been both anger and sadness, given she just found out her son was stealing (and not petty theft either).|

A little kid at my local, who had been a regular, had been a good player, hood hobbyist, earned himself a ban when he (for some unknoweable reason) tried to steal six or so blister packs (equalling over AU$150) in the pockets of his cargo pants.
The worst part, the part I can`t forget, is the look on the kid`s mother`s face.

As with theft i have seen a few things but hell one time one of my mates left his modal behind so i informed the staff and said that i'll keep it with my stuff so when we would be both back agian next week i would be able to give it to him and not hassel the staff to remeber whos modal is whos. My local guys are great (the maneger is trying to find an only Chimera/Basalisk instruction book for me as force world didn't send me one)

|unixknight||Oh I was just referencing something I read once that was making the point that people's decisions are made by their emotions, not their reason. They cited the example of a typical ad in a magazine for cigarettes. It's usually something like a photo of a group of happy, young, attractive people having the time of their lives, associating this with the product. Then, at the bottom of the page, big as life, is the Surgeon General's Warning saying, essentially: "If you use this product, you will die." The photo appeals to the emotion, the warning appeals to the reason, and yet the ad is effective.|
