Stephen King once said that telling an alcoholic to control his drinking was like telling someone with explosive diarrhea to control his shitting.
I imagine that this might be a good analogy for how some of you are feeling today (gravedigger. Yes, that's right. I still love you - - sinner...)

Don't be gun shy. Have at it.
