What not to say...

Here are a few things not to say to a psychopathic terrorist/warlord/etc. bent on world domination or at least one who is holding you or someone else captive or is gloating over his evil plan while you're helpless at the moment to stop him/her.  The reasons not to should be obvious: it doesn't work and makes you look silly.

1) "You won't get away with this!"

2) "You'll kill lots of innocent people!"

3) "You can't do this to me!"

I'll try to think of more, but if you have any suggestions for other things to not say when faces the "bad guy," please leave a comment and tell me.

Oh, don't forget to download Yahoo! Widgets here and the "Evil Overlord" widget here.  This evil overlord knows not to make the same mistakes many previous ones have.  Here's one of his rules I particularly like:
"Rule 178: If I have the hero cornered and am about to finish him off and he says "Look out behind you!!" I will not laugh and say "You don't expect me to fall for that old trick, do you?" Instead I will take a step to the side and half turn. That way I can still keep my weapon trained on the hero, I can scan the area behind me, and if anything was heading for me it will now be heading for him."

Prov. 17:28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

The list of What not to say... was pretty good. I couldn't think of anything else.

Rule 178 is a good one. :)
Of things not to say, "You won't get away with this." has got to be the most commonly used phrases when in that kind of situation. Not a smart thing to say.
