You would create a thriving black market economy. It already happens here with 'red' diesel that is cheaper and sold in bulk to agricultural buisnesses- a lot of that gets sold on for road usage.
Up the stakes, increase the crime. It would be an equivalent situation to prohibition.

I was away for the weekend and some of the posts during that time seem a bit borderline (a little name calling and politics) but we seem to be back on track now. I am enjoying the debate so please stay within the rules so we can continue this discussion.

If I crosed the line then I apologize. I freely admit that argument is verbal form of martial arts and I enjoy it. I hope that I offended no one and promise you that those who offered a different opinion than I hold did not offend me! I say this because I think one of my posts might have been the most political.

Razor,

I know it's unusual for all of us to agree, but this whole discussion has shown a lot of common ground for us even in disagreement. We disagree on the idea that global warming is a problem, that the science used as it's basis is flawed, and that the sky is falling because of it... but we've all agreed that it's not good to pollute or do things that hurt the planet and the people on it. Whether that's going on is where the debate is right now, and it's interesting...

I personally believe it's a scam, based on bad science, and has been using the "lefty" press to push the "Chicken little" theory out and scare the public. Others are swallowing it hook, line and sinker because the U.N. (and we all know how honest they are... ) has a committee that's recycling the same bad information from 50 different directions, but all coming from the same place.

Matt can't believe that I think what I do, and I can't believe that he swallows the bait and actually believes that it's factual... but all in all, it's been a friendly argument.

How'd that happen?

I've no strong opinion one way or another on this GW issue as I live under the cool shade of a large tree or rather the house is. What I am more worry about (from the martial arts view point) is the reversing of the Earth's magnetic field which some scientists said has happened before a long time ago, presumably before there were martial artists or at least not that those scientists knew of.

My question to all you "global" experts (absolutely no sarcasm here whatsoever, none at all, not one tiny weeny bit) is -- will we all be doing our kata/forms in the reverse order when it happens?

Feel free not to answer if you do not know the answer.

I always wondered a similar question: does chi flow in the opposite direction in the southern hemisphere?

reiki, eyrie ? perhaps could help us out here.


wait...I may have asked the wrong question. in theory we can't end this thread until the third reich is mentioned.
