prize for ‘attempt at chemistry’”
Reminds me of the quote from the Simpsons:
“Attempted murder? What a ridiculous charge, you do not give people prizes for ‘attempt at chemistry’”
Just supports my overwhelming desire not to even visit the united states of lunatics.
Mind you, Every time US “cousins” invent some ridiculous legislation, Europe and the UK are not far behind.
I think I will immigrate to Iceland. Have you ever heard anything about Iceland? – Exactly.
Not that I want to keep warehouses of DVD’s that I will attempt to distribute, but living in a society were commercial interest outweigh sanity...
Soon, it will be illegal to make, distribute, and attempt to sell “generic” cola, have non-franchised fast food joints, as they will inevitably attempt to sell generic hamburgers, and, most wicked crime of all, attempted freedom of choice – when you will attempt to choose to collect & filter rainwater, rather than purchasing Dusani, or whatever that brand of tap water Coke sells in the states.
“Statisticians” [read – a moron with “education”] will work out that the average American family consumes 2.3 litres of water per day, with x families in the states, equals x Tons per year. When they will sell only y Tons, they will blame it all on evil pirates, and legislate to have nano-transmitters placed in the water. Then, they will scan the sewage, to detect “liquid” with low nano-transmitter ratio, hence identify the homes buying (or collecting) generic water.
Before long, it will be mandated that a person has to shop at a pre-approved retailer, buying pre-approved goods, at pre-determined quantities. – Want to use less toilet paper – tough! You must purchase one roll a week.
Owner of the toilet paper manufacturer needs more money for another yacht? – It will be “scientifically proven”, lobbied, and legislated that you need to use two rolls per week!
You know I am right!
