    Some people ought to be limited to two posts a day- quality, not quantity.
    Feeling lonely and ignored, Rummy? Or just trying to monopolise the site?
    Must be some reason for the increase in output.

    Playing catch up. I’ll bet some of these have been sitting in a Word document for weeks.

    rummy, did you ever get that money from your friend that you sued?

    or, is he still in debtor's prison??
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    As to feelings, neither.
    Certainly not lonely or ignored, judging by the feed back to my threads and posts.
    Not trying to monopolise the site either.

    Felt like making a few posts. It isn't against forum rules. If so, please advise where it states that.

    As far as I understand there is nothing in the forum rules/terms&conditions etc to stop anyone from posting on this Forum.


    Wrong on your accusation of playing catch up.

    Also wrong on your last comment about posts been sitting in a Word document for weeks. I don't do that. Perhaps you do?

    I got it, and also interest and my lawyers fees and expenses.

    Chap turned out to be a gambler which I didn't know.

    Not a friend of mine any more.

    I think that this is a perfectly sensible and indeed a rather interesting post and Doug is not putting forward any political “agenda” here.

    So play nice.

    I was an old student on a trip for my working class liberal arts university in 1998 which, due to its long history of teaching vocational skills teachers was like an Ivy League college to all its extensive technology alumni in Asia and they gave us a special seminar in a Seoul, Korea university where the Political Science professors politely explained that besides being able to dominate US markets for steel and low cost cars, along with the world market for ship building, due to our generously covering most of their military defense costs, they were keeping social costs down by limiting the number of attorneys that graduated each year. The intent being that attorneys would be available for business and commercial clients and unaffordable for divorce or child custody disputes.

    It was sort of the basis for my impolite reply comment to one of our enthusiastic Korean student hosts that stated he loved Americans but felt real sorry for us because our divorce rate was about 50%. I replied that unlike Korea, American women have rights and back in the 1920's when women were shunned from society and lost their children and home if they divorced their husband, America had about 2% divorce rate like South Korea currently had.

    He was embarrassed in front of the group, but later they took us out to their giant artificial steel manufacturing island and city, it was like a giant James Bond movie. South Korea was obviously succeeding...

    And I do not use MS Word for posts. All the edits I am doing after the posting shows I am using the forum dialog box as a word processor...It is a worse habit than practicing on the game during hunting season.

    As do I. I certainly would've placed the US at the top of that list. Interesting. Thank goodness we have a higher percentage of lawyers though!

    So Germany is the most litigious but with half as many lawyers per capita as the US?

    Do Germans sue one another unrepresented or are German lawyers more efficient?

    I guess it depends on how you rate litigiousness. I've not been able to find the source to the article, but have some speculations as to why Sweden is high on the list. In my experience, we rarely sue each other or private companies. We are however a well regulated country where many things (especially building private houses) require approval from government authorities. If we don't get that approval and the authorities are unwilling to negotiate, we appeal the decision. Sometimes this means taking then case to court. That's not costly and usually doesn't involve lawyers. Appeals are often successful.

    The threat title is vague enough to make the list not especially useful.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I think the OP introduces some small dollop of interesting sociology. Not with academic-level intellectual rigor and clarity... sure. But still interesting.
