Profitable Punishment By Jenn June 8 2004
All that glitters isn't gold. Similarly, all that is brown isn't shit.
Faced with a choice you, by definition, have more than one option. Each have their benefits and detriments. But sometimes the best choice by conventional wisdom isn't really the best choice.
I went to a Catholic high school. We were required to attend an hour long mass every week. If you did not attend mass, you were punished with 1/2 hour of work.
So, by skipping mass and taking the punishment, I recouped 1/2 hour of time already alloted to the weekly mass.
