Uganda is a bit more backward than us. They should take ours.
Then it should be ignored.
Ireland's worst air disaster occurred early this morning when a small two-seater Cessna plane crashed into a cemetery. Irish search and rescue workers have recovered 2826 bodies so far and expect that number to climb as digging continues into the night.

I suggested we do it based on population.

In each case, China. Hence the reference to bowing... :>

And why is that??? Differing conditions in differing states may make
what is sensible in one state totally unsensible in another. Road
conditions, weather conditions, social sensibilities, etc.
For example "road trains" can make perfect sense in Nevada, where
allowing them in California or Oregon would be total lunacy. - and the
highway laws reflect that.
Well, given that most of our states are bigger than your *country*, I guess
it would be comparable to saying Brits, French, Danes, Swedes, Germans,
Italians, Spaniards, Portuguese, Austrians,... (you get the picture;
I think I've named less than half the land area of the USA) should
have the same laws, same language, same currency, same *leader*, etc.?
Given that Europe had a long headstart on these things (vs our ~300 years),
you'd figure you'd already have ALL of that down pat, eh?
Good luck convincing the rest of the Continent!
Since the leaders are different, it's reasonable to have different laws. But you only have one president. By all means have different laws, but have different governments too.
So you're admitting you're just young uns?
Unfortunately we are beginning to go your way with the EU shit. They impose stupid laws which all the member countries have to abide by, although some seem to get away with ignoring them.
We are with Europe, but not of it. We are linked, but not compromised. We are associated, but not absorbed.
And should a European statesman address us and say "Shall we speak for thee?", we should reply "nay sir, for we dwell among our own people".

Yes, but you're in Canada. I don't know when DRL's became mandatory in
Canada but they are not in the US. Some manufacturers installed them,
some did not. My 2007 Toyota had them; my 2011 does not. Go figure.
Since they are not illegal in the US I'm surprised they are not
installed across the board.
Different attitude towards "government".
I can recall demoing some kit for some "ministry" official
(details long lost) in the mid 70's. They sent a car to
"Please fasten your seat belt"
"Oh, no thanks. I find them too confining..."
"It's the law."
"WTF?? You can't make me... (hmm... best not forget who I'm talking
to!) I mean, Wow, that's interesting!"
They were not installed on many vehicles for the US market because
many people were stupid enough to NOT BUY the vehicle with DRLs just
because it had DRLs. That was the result of marketting studies done by
Toyota and others. So Corollas built in Cambridge for the US market
don't get the module installed - or have the function dissabled in the
Not sure but I believe the same is true of the Civic built in
Alliston Ontario for the US market.
OT but my 2000 Solara has a driver's window that goes all the way down
with one push, but requires holding the button to go up.
My friend's '99 Rav4 had a button that went up or down with one push,
a year earlier, cheaper car, but better switch, IMO.
