    I was mildly surprised the legal question thread got closed, I feel like it isn't that uncommon for people to post general legal questions here and a quick thread title search agrees with me.

    Why do you say that? Kidding.

    It's a loaded topic and people I know personally are EXTREMELY emotional about it right now. I understand the move.

    Yep. I wouldn't allow a discussion. There have been decisions made here that I may have had small quibbles with. Not this one.

    Ok, it wasn't clear to me (perhaps it should have been) that it was *that* legal issue. I assumed it was of the genre "what can I do if my neighbor won't mow their lawn" or "what can I do if someone scrapes my car in the parking lot" or something. Guessing I missed the original topic, consider me thoroughly un-confused!

    Normally, in terms of my thought process, I am the Queen of Unintended Consequences. Today, I am the Empress. There are some spectacular unintended consequences raging in my mind, some of them I wouldn't mind seeing come to pass. Most of them are really, really bad though.

    Vague on purpose - I know you know what I'm talking about but I'm just going to leave it there.

    My tongue-in-cheek response was quickly removed by the mods. What I wrote was a factual statement. I want that on the record.

    I am hearing you on that. But in today's world, what applies to the goose does not necessarily apply to the gander.

    I know the answer to that: not many at all. A few years ago a good friend of mine made the attempt...he was in his mid fifties, is a world class designer of microprocessors, has plenty of money, but they turned him down. He thinks it was his age. They don't want their already burdened health care system to be further burdened by a bunch of incoming Yanks.

    My grandmother was Canadian. I wonder if they factor that in to the decision.

    Stories about people lost in the wild often feature a scene when the protagonist stumbles onto a camp/set of footprints/food remnants, experiences brief relief only to realize it is his own --- and that he's just expended a lot of precious energy stumbling around lost in a circle.

    bout right.

    Saw the last half of the film Marathon Man last night. Film was definitely different back then.
