"It would be a shame if the circuit breaker popped and you didn't notice though right?"
Wrong. You don't know much about AIS do you? Or shipboard electrics
"Rules are for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men" So you think SOLAS etc. are for the obedience of fools? The opposite is true. SOLAS is to combat the actions of fools. or don't you know anything about SOLAS and the sad history of safety at sea?
"which are Sea Shepard?" I suggest you are an idiot for even contemplating that post in the context you made it.
Fools rush in springs to mind.
Do you know what ADS-B is? Do you know the difference between ships and aircraft?
wrt AIS. Ships fitted with AIS must keep AIS in operation at all times, except where international agreements, rules or standards provide for the protection of navigational information. OK?
"a straightforward radar receiver to detect another ship's emissions long before you're in radar return range." Please explain
"Arguably the Sea Shepherd's campaign has delayed the decline of the Japanese whaling industry" Arguably it hasn't.
"There's many ways of finding out where ships are that don't necessarily require satellites" Such as?
Anyway, satellite AIS is now quite cheap and widely used by merchant vessels. No military needed.
It is ironic that government pushes the use of electronic billing and paying and yet still demands proof in the form of utility bills etc.
Similarly with insurance companies, pension funds and so on ad infinitum.
On a sightly different note, one utility co. I had problems with went incandescent when I provided a copy of my current passport as proof of identity, at their request, which passport was different from the one I had provided about 18 years previously. One has to wonder at the wonders of bureaucracy.
"communist Russia." Wrong. USSR. You sound like a Septic, because that is what they call Russia today, that or Soviet Russia.
"RAF radio direction finding stations (RDF, the short-lived original term for radar)" Wrong, completely wrong. RDF is RDF and radar is radar. They existed side by side for decades.
Phil O'Sophical, you say "I just think it's a silly idea to have one government", which is interesting as you are saying no country in the EU has it's own government and therefore there are no parliamentary elections for Westminster. Vey interesting indeed. I can only presume you don't get out very often. Did you by any remote chance vote for the UK to leave the EU?
So the UK could regain the sovereignty it never lost etc?
"especially something political, like "global warming" or "climate change" or whatever name Algore is using for it these days" you must have been listening to Monckton and the other lying deniers..
Big John can you please explain why an innocent person would wan't to pardon himself and jis associated? An innocent person would have no need to do that. Or, for your obviously non existent brain only a liar and guilt ridden con man would contemplate pardoning guilty people and himself.
Interesting the Tories are ideologically opposed to public ownership of public utilities whilst happily encouraging foreign governments to profit off the UK taxpayer. I suggest there is something going seriously wrong in the UK and people have not yet woken up to having been suckered by snake oil sales people.
I find it interesting that people on the right wing of politics are always screaming about the BBC being left wing and people on the left wing of politics are always ranting that the BBC is rigjht wing. Which is a fact. Try reading HYS for a few weeks and comments on YT etc.
Stop and think about this.
Also what most proponents of getting rid of the BBC because there are free tv channels seem to forget that they are paying via the ads, whether they use the products being advertised or not. Exceedingly unfair.
They also seem to want people like Murdoch to control the UK media. Total lunacy.
Go to the USA and see what happens there, mostly crap, at least the BBC sets a high standard which other channels have to try and emulate.
End of rant.
"In America they still have free speech" I think you misunderstand what free speech is, it doesn't mean licence to abuse people or be racist, which so many Septics and quire a few Brits seem to think.
It arises from freedom to criticise the government of the day but has been hijacked to mean an excuse to be obnoxious.
"Many of the famous names in science believed in God."
What is that supposed to prove other than the fact that there was no alternative in their societies at the time if they didn't want to be ostracised or even tortured etc.?
And what about all the non-Christian "names" from outside the so called Christian World? Presumably they don't matter because the weren't Christians. Correct?
You give religion a bad name. Thank god!
