I do it all the time on Swiss trains. Then again, if they put a socket above every seat (on modern trains at least), I somehow expect they won't mind.
As Robert Bosch famously said: "I don't pay people well because I have much money. I have much money because I pay people well."
I think it depends on your frame of reference. North Pole and the various rings around the south pole are correct if you want to end up in the same location with reference to the earth. If you observe the situation from the sun, there's no possible point, since the earth moves while you walk. If you observe the situation with yourself as the frame of reference, any point will do, since you will always end up where you are...
How many idiots will use this in the safe knowledge that they can't be busted for speeding anymore, I wonder...
Not a huge surprise... Though I wonder how they're going to wriggle their way out of that one. I'm guessing they'll just try to ignore it and hope it goes away.

- a cattle prod (for failing "visitors" without visible traces)

- thermite (to get rid of visible traces)
Works absolutely fine in Switzerland.

We will not tolerate such foul language on slashdot!
That still wouldn't help for Iceland...
Lots of options - I'm missing the Cimier Watch Academy (http://www.cimier.com/watch-academy-200.html). Nice, stylish mechanical Swiss wristwatch... but you get to build it yourself.
No disclaimer necessary - I don't work for them.
I recently bought a British film on BR which has a "by buing this Blu-Ray, you're supporting our film. Thank you!"-message at the start. Doesn't take more than about 4-5 seconds (basically as long as it takes to read out the sentence to you)... Even if it is unskippable, I somehow don't mind that one too much.
Nope. But it goes whoosh.
Age isn't immutable. Just wait a while.
I hope whoever bought it will use the domain for something befitting its history... But I'm prepared to be disappointed.
