Mleake - wasn't talking about you. I was just trying to point out that we sometimes get empty bravado. I read on another forum that someone was going to run into the pack and pick up a dog by its hind legs and thus the rest will flee.I doubt that's guaranteed.
Or someone who is sure they could make the shots surrounded by a dog pack. Not everyone can make the jump either or get in there in real time.
I also feel the statement that one can't live with oneself, is a throw-away - putting on my psychologist hat. Folks make horribly tough life and death decisions or screw up a situation. You can live with yourself. So that's not a real reason and I regard that as posturing.
Methodologies exist that are efficacious in treating psychological consequences so I don't buy into that.
