Oxymorons

Otherwise known as the Games Room, think of this as a subforum of the social club reserved just for sociable icebreaker games. Beware - they can be addictive!

I assumed that it was that Boots cannot possibly prosecute all shoplifters; how, for example, do they prosecute either (a) those they don't catch or (b) those who shoplift from, say, Prada (if there is one) in Ulan Bator?

maybe it is a statement of intent rather than of actuality. No wonder the Bible (a bit longer than Boots' statement) is so hard to interpret :D
