When has being mistaken for a criminal ever gotten someone killed? Except all those times it happened.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

That's OK, I'm sure eventually they'll work out the kinks. Hey, nobody's perfect, right? :wink:





Side anecdote: I was watching a TV show on netflix the other day, and in one scene, this character appears in a wig that is a different color and hairstyle from her normal hair. She also had different makeup and clothes. Although the scene doesn't explicitly tell you that this is the main character, it was strongly implied from the context, but I had to pause it and look carefully at her face to recognize her. In real life, if I didn't have some other clue, the disguise would have totally fooled me. I guess I'm just not very good at "facial recognition" myself.

Wrongly? Are you sure?
