Metric outlaws, and today's items at the blogs, Maria, and Larwyn.

Did you know about the European Commission's determination to make it illegal, in three years' time, for any products made in or imported into the EU to carry any reference to non-metric measures?
Not only will this cost industries on both sides of the Atlantic billions of dollars and euros, but it is in direct breach of US federal law.
Brussels Journal and EU Referendum ponder the problem.

A Dutch newspaper reported that Moroccan "youths" cheered loudly during showings of the movie World Trade Center in Rotterdam. Pieter confirms the translation at the prior link, and adds,
The translation is accurate although the Moroccans were clapping their hand rather than cheering.

The second paragraph basically says that various visitors left the theater in disgust and that the theater management reacted immediately by having security staff removing the Moroccan youths.

Good catch, it seems not a lot has changed since the real 9/11 when the same happened in some Dutch cities.

I wish the world were as innocent as intellectuals pretend. But we're far from the Peaceable Kingdom. If we're unwilling to behave ferociously toward terrorists and thugs, they'll behave with greater ferocity toward the innocent. That's a consistent equation in humanity's moral algebra.
The Sanity Squad has been discussing that point.

Do Muslims even use numbers?

Maybe the EU will next tell everyone what exact hammer is allowed?
The Yugo cannot be far behind.

Seriously, the EU can't be that dumb, I would hope? Oh, well, I guess they have sworn to comply with the Kyoto Protocols, after all.

What, fausta, correct hammers? I'll have to get me right over there, so's I can find out all about what is most "correct" in all matters.

The Europeans are indeed sooo congenitally sophistricated, aren't they?

As I recall, some ex-KGB guy, or high Soviet ex-official, said he thought the E.U. was being formed as a set-up for a Dictatorship. Seems to fit, eh?

With an approx. 1000 page Constitution, how could anything have been missed, if only by way of inherent contradiction?
