LATELY — 9 July 2004


Is it pos­si­ble for two coun­tries to declare war, and for both coun­tries to have acted legally? (That is, ac­cord­ing to in­ter­na­tional law.) What are the conditions? e.g. a fight over ter­ri­tory with not racial element? Are there any wars in history that qualify? Does goes to war to re­cap­ture a queen count? Were WWI and WWII legal? (At the outset.)

Why is it that movies in movie the­atres cost the same, ir­re­spec­tive or run time and the amount they cost to make?

Why is it that in most (all?) cities, taxis are reg­u­lated such that the price you pay is exactly the same?
