Just exactly how much is too much?

Linoge wonders about the same thing I’ve always wondered: just how much is too much?

Whenever someone says “too many” or “too much” or even “too little”, that always brings an implication of “just the right amount.”

So what is that right amount? Someone will say that “oh that’s too much/little” and then I’ll reply asking them “OK, then what’s the right amount?” and no one can ever answer that…. unless it’s a knee jerk “one is too many” sort of reaction, like Linoge mentions.

Give his post a read.

  1. To be honest, it is BobS’ question, I was just reprinting it… but I would certainly like an honest, straightforward, specific answer as well.

    • It’s just a rhetorical thing really…. to say “oh, that’s too much” well then, what’s the right amount? Applies to anything really.

      • I seem to recall something Stalin once said: “One death is a tragedy. A million deaths is a statistic.”

        Unfortunately, there are some people who are willing to exploit tragedies to whatever end they can.
