The Ayatollah's right. You can't sustain irrationality, autocracy and extremism against a tide of information and entertainment shared worldwide and without regard to gender. That's probably what he wants to do, so his policy is wise. But it won't last, even if things have to get (very) much worse before they get better.

Thanks for one sensible answer, more than half way down the thread. Now, can we all guess what is it about Norwegian supply that is so different? Different rules for things connected? Current limitations when most distribution is overhead, or run from more distant step-down, different lengths for charging leads... or what?

Some UK reports suggest that the 'scientists' and 'tourists' on this ship were ecofreaks seeking publicity to show that some previous explorer's route had become eco-wickedly ice-free. So... they got stuck in 'unforseen' thick ice. And so did their rescuers. And then they were evacuated thanks to an awful lot of gas-guzzling machinery - and still (today) can't leave the area. In the UK, we really do enjoy a good joke like this.
