I appreciate the end result, but it would be so much better if he was doing this because he wanted to do it and not as a revenge tactic to spite his neighbours. Even though they say that's not what it's about, that's really what this reads like, and I worry that the tenants might be the ones that pay the price because George decided to start a small war with them.

This is more your inexperience talking. You can do everything possible to instil a sense of civility in your children and still have little monsters.

The problem here is you think parenting is an easy job. Newsflash: everyone who doesn't have kids thinks parenting is an easy job. Once you have your own your opinions will not be anything like they are now.

"An all girls environment is reasonably necessary for the school to improve the self-confidence of girls in their academic abilities"

No it most certainly is fucking not. By depriving either sex of opposite sex interaction you are just disadvantaging them for when it comes time to work in the real world where you won't be gender segregated. Bullshit like this really makes me think these people are idiots.

Most modern vehicles record telemetry already. That black box data can be used to help determine what the cause of an accident was. This is just an evolutionary step in that technology.

You could see it as bad, but you could also see it as making it easier to prove you weren't at fault when an accident occurs. I personally wouldn't want it, but it's the sort of thing one should examine from all sides before making a snap judgement. I'd find it particularly interesting to install in police cars. Oh, you were doing 90kph in a 50 zone with your police cruiser with your lights off? The system has just issued you a speeding ticket.
