Judges: Don't know the law? It's understandable

Thumb Up

Some countries have such database

Atleast in Finland the ministry of justice maintains an online database with all current laws and regulations and even the goverment proposals to the parliament for upcoming laws, all freely available over the internet.

http://www.finlex.fi/en/ has the english explanation.

But the israelis DO want f-22

"Noticeably, the Israelis plan on buying the F-35: they think it'll be useful. They aren't even bothering to ask for Kopp's beloved Raptors."

Is quite wrong, the Israeli airforce has stated several times that they would love to get the F-22.


F-22 exports likely

"As far as Dr Kopp's standpoint goes, there is absolutely nothing to suggest that the Raptor will ever be exported to anyone: he is arguing for a "solution" that isn't on the table."

Is also bit wrong. The very fact that the export ban of F-22 was recently lifted suggests that there is high probability of such in future. (else why bother lifting it),

Countries that have stated an intrest to buy it are atleast Japan and Israel.

Did we say you can read that?


Would make for good research

Just have some professor (or several together) assign all types of possible dodgy books to stodents with the intructions on what police stations to go to to ask for opinnions if they are legal to own and then make a report.

Say you have 100 books, spread out on 100 students, each book given to 3 students, and every student thus getting 3 differtent books over the course to ask the police about.

Then write a research paper on the responses..

Firefox 3: now available bug-free, say devs

Thumb Down

Waiting for a fast enough version

So still using FF 1.5 as FF 2 was a mess and while FF 3 RC 1 was slightly better than 2, it is still painfully slow.

This is atleast with the way I browse as I have dozens of tabs open at any given time and keep some open for weeks.

Both FF 2 and 3 just freeze for several seconds every now and then without a rhyme and reason. Also middle clicking quickly to open about a dozen tabs only half open as the opening of a tab freezes everything for a good fraction of a second. Also FF 1 line does a bit of this but there the pause only happens after 2-3 tabs and is way shorter.
