The UK's swing sets on its play grounds are too high, The EU will address this international matter immediately and with swift action!!!

You would think that there would be some more weighty matters to discuss....

Man, I hate the fun police almost as much as I hate the thought police. Actually, come to think of it, I really dislike most all police, except The Police, of course.

Besides, what fun are swing sets if you can't swing 10 feet in the air and then jump out - it's the closest I got to flying for my first decade of life.

On a serious note: Hayek, Crack in the Egg. 'nuff said.

Do you remember those old Charlie Brown cartoon holiday specials? Remember the sound that all the teachers and adults made whenever they spoke?

That's the sound i heard when i read the last sentence of your post.

From another page at that site:
"...Hayek's ideas are at the forefront of the movement towards a society based on freedom of association and exchange according to the rule of law, and away from the control of society from the center according to the whim of government. ..."

This is some interesting stuff.. thanks for the link..

Hayek's "Crack in the Egg" is the theory that once you let government exercise one whim, you have begun a path to the inevitable loss of freedom.

Hasn't that path been being walked upon since civilization began?

or:

Hasn't government been excercising whims since their has been government?

I think it's pretty bogus the article. Totally moronic actually. I agree with you about flying up on swings and jumping off them i've jumped off more swings in my day flying through the air an all that.. great fun.. I used to pretend i was Billy Bishop strafing an airfield as i came down.. then had to eject as i was shot down by the Red Baron.. also mastered the backflip out of them.. a friend broke an arm in elementary school flying out of them.. late seventies or 1980 abouts.. their was no hubbub about it then and shouldnt be now.. stupid really.. I just thought the last sentence up their was .. eh.. .. yeh.. Edit> im being overly sensitive.. sorry..
