    Same here, police can apprehend you if you're disturbing the peace in some way or are deemed to be so drunk you're endangering yourself but just being drunk is perfectly legal. The act of drinking in...

    I suppose you're also for banning drinking, most sports, cars, swimming, going outside when it's icy and every other thing which people engage in irresponsibly and thus end up a drain on health care?

    Nope, I stay away from food with an exoskeleton, so arthropods are out of the question. I don't mind of others want to stuff themselves with the little monsters though, and if I had to I think I'd...

    Not criminalising something that a substantial proportion of the population get up to with little adverse effect to themselves and practically none to their surroundings is a substantial gain in...

    I don't smoke but from both personal experience and judging by all the science I've seen it just seems daft to keep it criminalised as it's one of the least harmful things we humans get up to and...

    I'm still working my way through them for the first time and finished Surface Detail last night which was great. Only Matter and The Hydrogen Sonata left to go and I'm genuinely a little sad that I'm...

    Sweden has had no military presence in Iraq and the largest group of asylum seekers by far come from Syria, followed by Somalia and Eritrea. If counted as one country, former Yugoslavia would come...

    Losing touch with culture and losing touch with popular culture are two very different things though.

    Hasn't this always been the case? I can't think of a single time in my life when I could tune in to a pop music radio program and not think 98% of what was played was pure soulless garbage. On the...

    Pretty much, it's one of the least densely populated countries in Europe (21 people/km2, as compared to 30-something in the US or 250-ish in the UK, IIRC) combined with a high degree of urbanisation,...

    There are some parallel themes and I think Moon handles those a whole lot better, but they're distinctly different films with different stories so calling Oblivion a clone seems rather unfair. It's...

    I think the big battle scene where Cruise and his wife are chased by the drones is perfect illustration of why I didn't like the film. I'm never given any reason to care about the characters and the...

    Yes, while I think Stephen Dillane has lifted the character to something more than he is in the books, the writing in the show has been pretty inconsistent in how it portrays him.
