    Well, I couldn't believe what I was hearing. All of these guys were defeated by a couple of headlights? or did they want to fleece me?

    Well, surely this isn't rocket science. Lots of people have these aftermarket headlights on their Mustangs. All of those thoughts came rushing in my head and made me mad . But I stuffed it back like a good ENTP, and set out to prove something.

    Guess what? I don't have any formal training, and I installed those headlights myself, wiring and all. I drove back over to the mechanic to show them off. The guys just stood there with their mouths hanging open. Priceless.

    I was so proud, I did a whole 'how to' write up with photos at my favorite mustang forum.

    I think I see what you're getting at, but no, that's not what I meant.

    I meant that there is such a thing as proper justice sans revenge, and that it and nobility are intrinsically tied together.

    As such, if you don't believe in justice, as you think it's never noble and is always only revenge, then you do not believe in nobility.

    Revenge is typically self-torturous practice.

    I think I have trouble with making myself clear to people. I didn't mean I believe in justice, I mean that often times, it seems people try to mask vengeance as justice.

    Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

    If success is the best revenge, than misery must also love company.

    Justice..is not fairness, all things considered. Always.
    People don't see all things.
    Justice as defined by people is seldom that. And is never perfect by people.
    So justice as is too often used to describe what approaches fairness, simply can't be made by man. But justice gets replaced by fairness in those minds which are biased. Because of personal bias.
