This may be a dumb question, but I've always been curious about this. We all know the eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth policy...But what if a man knocked out 1 of your teeth, and when stake your vengence, you knock out 2 teeth or possibly kill him...what happens to you?

I guess you end up in a type of vicious regress.

I would guess thatif you knock out two of his teeth, he is entitled to one more of your teeth. If you kill him, then you would be killed (except for one tooth, which would be kept alive in a petrie dish).
