    More than a little OTT. Back in April over here they put up barriers blocking beach access, everyone one just moved them aside and proceeded with their fishing, picnics, diving etc. lockdown laws over here have no legal teeth, it's just stern requests which you can choose to adhere to or not. Guess we can "thank" the war for that.

    I'm kind of surprised as that doesn't seem very Japanese to me.

    The Japanese have two faces. A very strange societal psychology indeed. Generally speaking of course. Full of contradictions. It melts my brain. Loathe the place. Amazing place to visit, wouldn't wanna live here, oh, I do, but not for much longer, back to the land of sanity.

    I agree. Conversations we had with prior with Border Patrol and Immigration/Customs were more in tune with, "Hey, just don't come ashore" (the normal practice). The summer ended with Canadian gun boats patrolling the River. They were even out at night. No US agency to be found.

    If Americans are out there enjoying the dive sites, than the Canadian subjects will wonder why can't they go out and enjoy them too. And so reasonableness has gone out the window.

    Anyways down with spline nuts, even if we must smuggle them across the border.

    I remember years ago when I used to work in a gaming industry in Reno, we have some Japanese customers over as guests. In a rule area I remember they were amazed that people would actually come to a stop at a stop sign with no one around. Lol

    Yes, if you can be seen, be on your best behaviour, if you cannot be seen do what ever you like. Smoke and mirrors, it's all largely fake and pretence. Again, in general, of course there are some very nice people, with a population of 128,000,000 some have to be nice it's a statistical "certainty", much like the States I'd guess.

    Two guys in coonskin hats carrying muzzloaders & paddling a canoe...

    But seriously, stealth black RIB with a machine gun on the bow, and armed personnel aboard...
