Can you hold her in your arms and give her a kiss?

I guess distance is not that irrelevant, is it?

Distance as measured has effects on us, which we may shorthand mentally to equate with distance. Distance then, becomes a "separator" that inhibits your ability to see someone, but a webcam overcomes that effect of distance - causing a false sense that distance is an illusion. This is simply caused by the false association in the mind of distance with the classic effects of distance.

Distance as a measure between two points remains as real as ever and unaffected.

Well, look at some campfire on a webcam, and then stand next to one. You'll feel the distance.

I for one am glad it makes a difference, I should hate to get sucked through my TV next time I watch a Star Wars space scene!

Could be handy if you're watching dodgy late-night movies. Amirite?

Do you mean the 5th ammendment to the constitution of a country that has no jurisdiction where you are?

You do not have to say anything

But it may harm your defence if you do not mention,

when questioned something which you later rely on in court.

Anything you do say may be given in evidence
