    i've found from my personal experiences that after about the 10th time it isn't a big deal anymore.

    Which part of Brazil did you say you lived in, again?
    I heard it's beautiful there, this time of year....

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    *cough* No! It's actually pretty messy, with the arrangements for the World Cup and stuff, you know...

    Wouldn't that make it easier to hide in plain sight?

    Edit: actual question:

    I suppose it could get easier since there'll be more practice to devise better, more efficient methods. But a nagging conscience could also make it increasingly hard.

    They dont say it in all the movies, in the John Rambo franchise they dont, in fact they make the point which is made in good real life writing about war and soldiers in war and that is that people DO adapt and can even get to liking killing too.

    I'd imagine that it would. The biggest problem for me is the whole morality issue. If i could get over that hump...then who knows what I'd do?

    No. I believe the question it's pretty relevant.
