Pavement, not sidewalk, e.g. "The thieving git jumped from the building and died when he hit the pavement." Thieving Gits = Bankers Lying Gits = Politicians Tired and Emotional, = Extremely Drunk Heated exchange = Fist fight Frank exchange of views = Screamed verbal abuse at one another. There was a heated exchange after the Lying Git and the Thieving Git had a frank exchange of views on the pavement, about Ugandan discussions between the lying git and the thieving gits spouse, despite both of them being tired and emotional. (Never mention "Ugandan discussions" in polite company, euphemism for extra-marital activities.)
