    Should single men be able to sit next to unaccompanied kids on planes ?

    Thanks - I haven't posted for about 5 years so hadn't thought to check it. Will update.

    Except that the "standard policy" is discriminatory, is based not on hard science but on paranoia, and every time it's been challenged, the plaintiff has won and the airline has changed its policy.

    If it's random breath test, not at all. But how about if every man had to pass a breath test through a device fitted to the ignition before he could drive his car, every time he wanted to drive it, but women didn't - after all, men make up the majority of drink driving arrests. Would you...

    Did the lifeguard say that only female carers were permitted near the child, but that males were not? If not, it's a false equivalency and of no relevance here.

    Yet, by standing idly by while these policies are enacted, that's exactly what we're teaching our sons they are.

    Someone also mentioned London Mayor Boris Johnson being asked to move from his seat on a BA flight, for the unimaginable and quite heinous crime of sitting next to his own children. He wrote a great article about the experience: Come off it folks - how many paedophiles can there be

    For this to be a policy rooted in evidence rather than a reactionary knee-jerk to a perceived threat, each airline must have done research as to the frequency of males abusing children on airplanes, and found it happening often enough to warrant discriminating against men based solely on their...

    Pitfalls with Importing - What don't I know?

    Hi Skater, I've imported a bit of stuff from overseas (China, US, NZ) over the past decade and agree with what the other posters said about starting small. The best experiences I've had was with products that could be posted, as they arrived when they were meant to and there were no...

    MRI's use non-ionizing RFs, so there is no danger to the patient. CTs use ionizing radiation. Jamie.

    Obama Wins!

    A lot? How many is that? More than 1? Care to use facts rather than projections? I can't remember a more ridiculous assertion in my 6 years on this forum. African Americans comprise about 11% of the U.S population ... how are you with a calculator Mark? How mant "idiots" are there suffering...

    Obama Wins!

    McCain voted with Bush over 90% of the time during his time in the Senate, and has even used that statistic in his stump speeches to placate the hard core right-wingers. He used to pride himself on voting with Bush, until it became politically expedient not to do so. You can see him say it...
