The problem here is there's no consequences to the officer that does this. So they will continue to do it. You have to go to court to contest the ticket which will be thrown out...but you had to take time off from work to do it. Will you flash your lights the next time? Probably not.

It would be one thing to refuse to serve them, but to set them up with a meal then snatch it away like that was pure theater and intended to humiliate. I think a couple of the parents need to have a chat with whoever made that decision...perhaps a bit more...

Cancer from cigarette smoking and mesothelioma from asbestos inhalation are both diseases that happen due to voluntary human behavior. Why should obesity not also be considered a disease? The bottom line is getting help for people that have a health problem, not placing blame.

I vividly remember going from Dover, England to France....on the Dover side, everybody stood in a polite, well spaced queue to get onto the hovercraft...disembarking on the France side the same group of people became a mob all pushing at once for the exit door...

right...that's the issue here, not whether lions are inherently "too noble to eat" but whether eating them contributes to a threat to their survival as a species...

It was supposed to be mind blowing in the way an acid trip was...and I can vouch for the effect you get if you combine the two...

I think the issue is a confusion between free-form experimentation and formalized proof. You need both approaches, but if you want your conclusions to be respected, you need to formalize your methodology at least when you present your findings.
