Those who say the Japanese aren't burdened by so-called "judeo-christian" puritanism are proven wrong when it comes to drugs. The urge to control people's private lives can be just as strong here as in places where people believe the creator of the universe cares how we eat, dress, or perform sexual congress. Activities which produce no victims should not be crimes.

Posted in: What is the most effective way to put an end to Somali piracy? See in context

It's ironic how int'l shipping, the industry that's gone the furthest to divest itself of modernity, is beset by a pre-modern plague. That said, my solution to Somali piracy would be to blow up the mansions built by the rich ones. Satellite images could reveal them, give an hour's notice, then drop a 1000 pound bomb on it.

They should train people to stand properly on the platforms. Seems no matter how much safety gurus rail against this problem, no one listens. Perhaps she became scared, and died of freight.
