How to have an argument

Frank at IMAO says,
DON'T kick the other person in the groin when he strays. He might forget what you were talking about in the first place.
and
DON'T pile drive the other person into a folding table when you find a topic you vehemently disagree on. Though it would be cool, it's just not civil.
and
DON'T burn the other person's house down over a small disagreement on a fact. Yes, insurance will probably cover it, but he'll be less likely to listen to what else you say.

There are lots of other dos and don'ts we would all do well to remember. I really loved this comment on Frank's blog,

Arguments are simpler down here in Alabama.

"He needed killin'"

"But war is baadddd, mannn"

I could see this happening in my family if we owned any guns, wait a minute, some of us do. I don't know of any family in Alabama though.
Thanks to Baldilocks for the link.
