but its all good. if someone makes an argument based on reading the thing, you make them the odd one out.
if someone cites the 100s of other reviews you say ppl should read it themselves.
if someone cites him throwing a hammer straight in his brothers face, you cite some idylic waltons mountain type horseplay horse shit. yes you are right. its perfectly normal to beat the shit out of your siblings growing up. picking up a hammer and throwing it straight at their face however is not normal. quoting that incident years later with pride is not normal. and if you are seriously suggesting it is, then i fear neither are you.
we all have opinions tho and you are welcome to yours.
good luck with that way of seeing it.
