Where doesit end?

Help me out here. I seem to have fallen through to an alternate reality. The BBC news tells me that several heads of state/former heads of state are on trial for being complete assholes, which, of course they were. But we all knew that, didn't we?
On top of that, it seems the entire government of North Korea is being indicted for crimes against humanity. Who knew?
And, as if that was not enough, Russia has outlawed synthetic panties! Good God! What next?
Might they actually hold Obama, or even, GW responsible for this whole mess?
Folks, this could get nasty. We have to nip this in the bud. Who knows where it could lead. Actually holding elected leaders responsible? This must stop!
And, let's face it, making synthetic panties illegal is just going too far!

Re: Where doesit end?

I share your outrage. I'm a cotton underwear guy myself, but it shocks the conscience to think that synthetic clothing should be banned. It's just not natural ;>)

Exactly! I think, in protest, we should all just go commando!

In case you missed the heading, it's off topic.

I demand that edible panties be certified organic.

Re: Where doesit end?

This information is useful to cruisers - places to avoid? In any event it may impact on my plans to set up a Marina in North Korea (the big "sell" is security - from my time on CF I identified that cruisers love security, in NK they don't mess around when providing that. No Pirate problems in NK).

Re: Where doesit end?

FWIW:
The Russian regulation does not specifically target pretty underwear, but rather targets panties based on the garment's ability to absorb moisture. The minimum approved amount of moisture absorption is 6%.
The nations’ trade regulatory agency has deemed that poor moisture absorption is unhygienic.
Moisture absorption in many of the most popular synthetic material mixtures for lace panties is reportedly around 3 to 3.6 percent.

Re: Where doesit end?

So, I assume this means Russians leak more than 6% ( maybe it's the vodka)

Could be a market for vermouth and olive flavored edibles..

It doesn't end….the world is round (sort of) so just get in your boat and find out.

I tried to get on my boat yesterday and couldn't even get close ,multiple snowdrifts over my head. Arrrrrrrrrrrgh, maybe the world is ending.

You have my sympathy. Mt truck has 20ft of snow, 12inches deep, in front of it. I think I'll just wait for spring.
