What do you value more, playing by the rules or approaching things by any means necessary?

    You are truthful and realistic. I know a number of wealthy people and while the majority of them played by the rules & are wealthy I know one who admits he wouldn't be wealthy if he did follow the rules (and laws)!

    There's an Olympic gold medal swimmer that admitted he cheated by taking extra dolphin kicks because all the other swimmers do. If he didn't, he would not have won the gold. The rule against it is commonly ignored & unenforced, should be deleted.

    I agree that rules usually must be followed. In rare situations the rules get in the way such as with that poor lifeguard who saved a drowning person who was not in his "area" to patrol and was fired. At times rules don't make sense.

    I agree with you in that each case is different. If I would be fired for leaving my "post" and saving someone's life, so be it. If I had to cheat in a race b/c all other racers were, I would. As the song goes, "I'm Only Human."

    You're right. Some people might not be alive if their rescuer played by the rules & some people might not stand up for themselves if they played by the rules. Entire nations might not exist if the founders played by the rules.

    Honest and realistic, this is something very refreshing where playing by the rules is concerned. Some are so rigid that it is only to their detriment whether in some type of missed opportunity or on the flip side, jail time :)

    I agree but it's irritating to see people who harm others get ahead by cheating. Even more confusing are rules that aren't rooted in common sense such as a lifeguard being fired for saving a drowning victim outside his patrol area.
