Regulations in the Wild Blue Yonder
Regulations come in three categories. First, you have common-sense regulations to protect public health and safety — the kind everyone agrees we need. Then, you have pointless regulations about the fat content of restaurant food, or who can call themselves an interior decorator. And, finally, there are those well-intentioned regulations that try to do the impossible. Like making skydiving safe. The current skydiving regulations have been deemed insufficient, perhaps because they don’t outlaw gravity.
