Bill, if you think some Nigerian con man is going to take a three day vacation
and spend five grand coming to the US to break your kneecaps, when he could be staying home and MAKING money
...I suggest you rethink that world picture.
Go to America to break kneecaps...Or could that mean, be lured to America and subject to arrest there? His risk is bigger than yours, kneecaps are cheap

harder to replace, arguably impossible to replace without a lifetime of complications and pain. Just in case you need to really threaten someone.
And in my neighborhood, no one flies in to break kneecaps without the local padrone's permission, which he isn't going to give to some foreigner poaching on his turf anyhow.

, where any big black dog will patiently explain to you that whenever someone wakes you, they are required to either feed you or play with you. And since they woke you, you
get to set the play rules.
