It was actually pretty good . . . mostly.

How Judges Cheat — Part 3

Today I thought I’d do #3 in my series on how judges cheat. In Part 1 I told the story of a barefoot Sarah Feldt at a Marriott, and how those judges reinterpreted the plain language of a statute. In Part 2 I discussed my library lawsuits, and how the judges there just ignored arguments (and evidence) that they didn’t like.

Today I’ll look at a different lawsuit I filed against the Ohio State Fair.

There was a comment in yesterday’s The Presumption of Safety that I thought I’d answer in a bit of detail.

Here it is, from Steve:

The Presumption of Safety

One thing we find with parents so protective of their children these days is that many kids just aren’t allowed to go barefoot any more.

But once those shoes are on, parents make a presumption that their kids are now safe because of them.

Not necessarily.

Gag Reflexology

There’s another bit of quackery associated with bare feet, and that’s reflexology. Now, before everybody goes nuclear on me, let me say that I’m not talking about foot massage, but the belief that various body organs are reflected on, and can be affect by, specific parts of our soles.

The human mind is endlessly inventive in coming up with ways to fool itself. It is only with using something like science that we can sort out the wheat from the chaff.

OK, This Is Just Disgusting

The story is about two Moms who started their own business serving a need. The main story is how they built their business.

But it is what their business is for . . .

Statehouse Redux

When last we left our intrepid hero, the Statehouse had responded to his request for a perpetual waiver from their rule by sending him a 3-page application.

Discovering the Difference

Here’s an interesting blog post I happened upon: Being A Warrior Princess is Tougher Than You Think. The blog itself is written by some of the personnel at a hiking/camping/travel store called “Summit Hut” in Tucson, AZ.

The writer, Emily, had always worn Vibrams, but had occasion to try barefoot.

The “E” Tax

What with federal income taxes being due today, and with the Republicans and Democrats fighting over what to do about the deficit, I thought I’d put forth my modest proposal on what to do.

And that is to levy The “E” Tax.

Crane Hollow

On Saturday, I got a chance to go into Crane Hollow in Hocking Hills. For those of you unaware of it, it lies between Conkle’s Hollow and Long Hollow to the north of Big Pine Creek.

When I bushwhack between Vulture Point and Airplane Rock, I’m down in Crane Hollow.

I made a point of heading over to Alley Park yesterday morning. I’m slowing increasing the weight of my backpack, so this time it had about 40 pounds in it.

I found it a bit more challenging for my bare feet, only because I felt the stones more than usual (and my knees complained).

Foot out the Window

Last fall I showed a picture I had snapped of somebody driving down the road with their bare foot out the window.

Concerns have been expressed about how safe that was, and whether it was illegal.
