David: With The What Now?

“All right. Think of it like this. Suppose you have a shovel, so you start digging straight down toward the center of the Earth. You toss each shovelful of dirt over your shoulder. As you keep going deeper and deeper, eventually you will reach a depth at which you are unable to throw the dirt in your shovel high enough to escape the hole. It will instead fall back down on your head, refilling the hole at best, or in the worst case burying you alive.”

“What does that have to do with whether or not the defendant mugged somebody?”
