radios on ships

Postby sks24 » Thu May 20, 2010 8:03 pm

I apologize in advance for asking after this here, but I just had a close friend die, and I want to cite case in a letter to a lawmaker.

But I can't remember the case.

I think the majority opinion was written by Holmes, probably sometime between 1902 and 1932, and the court held that radios on ships should be mandatory. I'm pretty sure it was a civil suit.

Also: what are the best web forums to ask questions like this?

Thanks,
Scott

Crap, I know exactly what case you are talking about but also don't remember the name.

My condolences as well.

The weird thing is that I rarely forget case names, but I think this case was in the notes of my book or something.

I would just like to point out that I approve of radios on ships. I also think that basic cable is a must.

It would have been 172 if you mentioned pay per view porn.

180 if you said "screw radios; gimme porn!"

Nah, the right way of spelling it just hasn't caught on yet. Give it time, give it time.

It's a non-standard word meaning give me, not give mie.

I like how it only took a few posts to devolve from death to porn.

Dude, just because two words make up a new word doesn't mean that it should be spelled the same way, haha.

Gimme sounds like some kind of Spanish or French word.

OED says gimme. And I kind of love that the OED has an entry for it.

OP, I'm sorry about your loss. Also sorry about the derailing of your thread. Unfortunately I don't know the answer to your question.

Oh please. Because I took half a second to apologize to some guy who'll probably never even check the thread again for helping it go off course? Don't hate because your defended spelling is wrong. :P

It's Hooper. Thank you very much for your help. Were my friend's medical records in the cloud, she would likely still be alive, and her seven YO little girl would still have a mother.
