    Prohibiting prostitution is unconstitutional – MARTIN VAN STADEN

    Thor's original point is the one that's irrelevant though. It's not the primary aim of decriminalization to reduce the specific harms that were claimed as justification for original prohibition... Especially when those harms themselves were exaggerated or false, nevermind just plain old...

    Prohibiting prostitution is unconstitutional – MARTIN VAN STADEN

    How? This was an important element in the cannabis judgement recently - that the original justification for criminalization was based on moral norms that no longer enjoy respect, to put it mildly.

    Rubbish bins - lock or not?

    Call the city and ask them to send a crew to sweep the street?

    Rubbish bins - lock or not?

    Sounds like this is the actual problem. Why do they make a mess in your street and not in others? Our local waste pickers make very little to no mess. A creative solution would get the incentives aligned...

    Retail stores requesting customer email addresses for till receipts.

    Would much prefer the old-fashioned hand-in-to-the-authorities recovery process but yes I'm aware. Thanks for the tip!

    Retail stores requesting customer email addresses for till receipts.

    I like to keep my digital identifiers and my physical person apart. Probably mostly irrational, but if a restaurant knows my email address and I also happen to leave my wallet there, I'm quite a lot more exposed than if I only left one or the other.

    To Stay, or not to stay..That is the question.

    This applies to the rationale for leaving in the first place. I don't understand how anyone who's left on the basis of imminent "economical collapse" is not bitterly disappointed. The glass-half-empty goggles surely don't fall off when they get off the plane in NZ.

    FNB Money Maximiser

    Note it has a cheeky monthly fee. This reduces the effective interest rate. On R300k it's now 6.89%, not 7.15%. But you get instant access, so I use it for short-term liquidity and convenience.

    Where can I report a restaurant for giving me food poisoning?

    People are missing the point here. It's not about proving the restaurant made OP sick, it's about the public health issue and civic responsibility to report the incident. When a restaurant's hygiene is not up to scratch, it's not like just one person gets sick. Nope - Staph aureus...

    Where can I report a restaurant for giving me food poisoning?

    There should be a local health inspectorate you can call to let them know. They probably won't do anything, but hopefully they at least record it, and if they spot a pattern they can act. IIRC if more than two people fall ill having eaten from the same place it becomes a legal obligation for...

    Am I under weight?

    Yes, thanks, I know. But the fact that there's not a single essential carbohydrate, i.e. that you can live a whole life without the entire food group, is an interesting and under-appreciated fact, notwithstanding the caveats. Nevermind the efficiency: isn't it interesting that your brain (and...

    Am I under weight?

    You need a few grams of fat and protein, and your liver will be just fine. Most of the protein in your body is recycled, so you shouldn't overdo it -- your kidneys will just be forced to work excreting nitrogen. Most of your calories should probably come from fat.

    Am I under weight?

    Nope. Google "essential carbohydrate" and let me know what you find.
