    Default Fair Extension...Could YOU do it?

    After reading this story, I sat and thought, is there someone I could do that to? Is there possibly someone in my life that I hate enough to take all their happiness and make it mine?? And I was disturbed when I thought, yeah there is. So what I want to know is, is there someone in your life you could do that to?

    I don't think I have anyone like that in my life. I'm not really jealous of anyone either. So maybe that means I'm the guy everyone hates!

    Not jealous of anyone, but there are people I hate- maybe two. They never harmed me except indirectly by hurting someone I loved- a lot. I don't know who one of them is as he got away with it as far as I know. I am not consumed so I would have had to think about it when asked if there were anyone I hate.

    And yes, I would take the deal at their expense and call it Karma.

    When I first read this book I was thinking the same thing after I read Fair Extension. After reading about the horrible outcome, I don't think I could. But, at first I would probably say yes and and end up feeling bad afterwards as soon as that person's unhappiness unravelled. It is one of those things that the notion of getting rid of your own misfortune and giving it to someone else sounds pretty tempting. But the reality of it would be ugly. I think that Stephen King has a wonderful way of bringing to life things that people only dream of. (not acting out)

    I would agree. It is one of those things that you would think about but would never do. That is what makes Stephen King such a wonderful author. He brings to life things that a person would only dream about.

    I could sit by and watch as suffering was inflicted on two very deserving people--and take pleasure in it--yet if that also included hurting those around them I would have to say no. Unfortunately.
    If just these two people were affected though I would say "yes please."
    (I must be twisted, as just thinking about that has made me smile.)

    It`s " Morality " all over again...extended and much more horrible this time.

    And again, NO on both counts.
