Have you seen how much effect a nuke is likely to have on a significantly sized NEO? None whatso fucking ever. If an NEO is enough to wipe us out, it won't be screwed by a nuke.
Also the ideal launch point for such a nuke would be from space, not Earth.
That should mean I can go to the bathroom without turning the lights on, just by having my phone emit ultrasound.
If you want an amusing yet informative read on Prenda's exploits, Popehat is the place to go
Roberts breached the 'Yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theatre test'. Only in his case it was a plane instead of a theatre
On top of that there is also Article 10 of the ECHR "Freedom of Expression". Whilst the European Convention on Human Rights is separate to the EU, it is mandatory for all EU members to also regard the Articles of the Convention as binding and effectively a Constitution for all EU member nations. It is ironic that different nations interpret Article 10 differently and thus "Expression" which is legal in one EU member can be illegal in another. Other Articles may also come into play too (Privacy, Association, Marriage etc)

We are prepared to accept a few incidents if it means that no intrusion onto our rights is necessary.
If it's a sword from the fall of Gondolin and forged by the elves of that time, it is already several thousand years old and definitely a rarity. Most swords will have gone rusty by that time, so I for one wish to learn the elvish technique for making stainless steel which maintains a cutting edge for thousands of years despite abuse by trolls and everyone else.
I actually think Google should charge all media organisations to be seen on News where laws like this are in effect but offer a free service elsewhere
...there has been this enormous struggle to find a qualifying plaintiff, there cant be that many who really give a damn, can there?
It really seems like this is a class action by lawyers, for lawyers.
