When captured and detained by either an enemy or local law enforcement, do not attempt to talk your way out of it by saying in a commanding tone "You better let us out of here, or else!"
Even if you have the 'or else' to back it up, your captor will not believe you until it is too late. Best to have a 'or else' that doesn't also include your own demise.
In other news, it appears to be quite warm across most of the country, but it is rather temperate here. Odd.
I'm at work, but no one else is.
I probably have a rant, but it can wait.
