dude, the word "CAN and WILL" have slightly different meaning. one is absolute outcome, the other is possible outcome.
Dude, where's my car??
When you say that someone sustained a fatal blow, it means the blow was fatal. It killed.
No if and or buts ... it killed. Undertsand??
for example, a bullet can be a fatal weapon. meaning a bullet CAN kill you, but not neccesarily WILL kill you because there is other factors such as location of the injury, how big is the bullet point, what gun is using to shoot, etc..?
Dude, a bullet is a projectile or ammo. It is not in itself a weapon.
Also, the moment you say it "can be fatal" means that it is possible but not necessarily. Because of the words "it can be"
Not because a fatal shot doesn't kill. A fatal shot means it killed.
likewise, a fatal punch. can a punch kill a person? YES, but would it absolutely kill a person? NO. depends on different factors.
See, there you go again. A fatal punch means the punch killed. Then you talk about ordinary punch. quite different.
okay, let use your poison example. in theory, a poison will kill a person. but in reality, it doesn't ALWAYS kill a person. get it? there's ppl who can survive after taking a poison. again, there's other factors involved to give a definite outcome. so what ya think of my explanation? lol did i make sense or not?
Yes, if you just say poison. But "fatal poison" always kills when ingested ...
unless the stomach gets pumped out before the poison takes effect.
But, then it wouldn't be "fatal"
Do you understand yet??? Or do you want to cling to your definitions???
