I agree with you and sortius_nod, this country is a fucking nanny state. We have governments who insist on appeasing a bunch of scared old fuddy-duddies. At this rate every corner will have a padded edge, driving will be at the fixed speed of 40K everywhere and a curfew will apply to everyone under the age of 30(those over that age don't need a curfew, they never go out at night). 1984 comes in a maid's outfit under the guise of fixing your buster.
This country needs to get some fucking dignity and remember where it put it's balls.

I hate people like you who make comments like this. You are posting on slashdot yet you seem to think someone cares for your opinion and that you are not wasting time for simply being there. You sir, are a fucking idiot in thinking slashdot is adding anything of value to your pathetic existence. IMO your time is worth jack, that is why you are here and why you will probably contemplate replying to my post.
You're right. Nobody should ever check IDs for anything because they can all be faked.
In fact, why even have laws? Terrorists can just go around shooting everybody anyway.
For an anonymous coward you raise an insightful point.

Roll carefully, Mr President, the fate of your nation depends on it. Here's my lucky D20...
Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.
