The Defuser.

This morning I caught a radio guy talking about how to defuse an argument.

He recounted how his bishop advised him and his wife who struggled with quarrelling. He told them to stop right in the middle of the dispute. And then pray.


Not only would this act allow for a "cooling off," but it would seem almost impossible to be outwardly angered while upwardly focused.

Not sure this would work in courtroom arguments though.
