# 39, 142
The 39 rule is don't ride in front of the battle. What did the Editor do? 142 just was funny and I thought deserved an honorable mention due to hilarity.
I will now demonstrate why monologues are bad.
Philosopher positions a dummy down range and then promptly pushes a button on a controller after getting up range. The dummy immediately begins to talk "Hell (boom)...". Philosopher then shouts "Reset!" after having shot the dummy. The dummy is loaded and starts its speech again "Hello, I am the (slash)...". A thrown axe sticks out of the dummy and Philosopher begins a speech " As you can see by monologueing you give the hero or villain a free opportunity to take you down with little effort. I hope everyone has learned the reasons why monologues are dangerous to the monologuees.".
I think therefor I am.
