Well instead of the rest of the pages being used as a workbook they should have just made it a pamphlet.

So it's legal to be a pirate then?
 
2022-05-27 3:10:46 PM  
Well, I'll be damned!

A law book that is comprehensible, to the point, and completely truthful!  What strange wizardry is this?

And my corporate law professor would still be able to turn that into a full class of Socratic questioning

There ain't no law that says a dog Lichtensteinian can't play basketball hijack ships.

I remember as a kid, I found a book called "The Wit and Wisdom of Spiro T. Agnew". I believe it had a short biography of a couple paragraphs and a picture of the man, then blank pages. I believe I still have it stored in a box somewhere.

I would buy this as a gift for many friends.  wish it was available for purchase.  why does capitalisms fail me so?

Nothing about paddling on the Rhine?

I was expecting it to be one of those fake books that actually has a safe inside.

Doesn't seem to be any laws against it so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

For those that don't get it, Liechtenstein is one of only two(?) countries worldwide that are landlocked by landlocked countries (double landlocked).  So not only do they not have a coast, neither does any neighboring country.

Liechtensteinian kinks are in other documentaries.

Not a lot of cargo ships and deep sea fishery rights for a mountainous country landlocked between Switzerland and Austria.  If they did have regulations, it would be like the NRA having regulations related to oxygen production on Titan, a moon of Jupiter.

Yup, two doubly-landlocked countries.  Uzbekistan is the other.

Me too.  Somehow in my efforts I went down a GIS rabbit hole and ended up with "busty lawyers"

Just because you're landlocked doesn't mean you can't have a maritime administration - looking at you Mongolia.

So can I now teach at a collegiate level???
 
2022-05-27 5:41:49 PM  
Does Liechtenstein even have a small stream let alone a lake?

Makes the navies of Switzerland, Saskatchewan and Bolivia look huge.

Maybe they inherited their Maritime Law from the Austro-Hungarians or somewhere.  At least Austro-Hungary did have a coast.

I like them. But in my experience, tassels usually fall off bookmarks.

Only at Liechtenstein nautical legal schools.

As I already joked about, the border with Switzerland is the Rhine River but it's not very big.

The authors have a phone number in the book. Perhaps you could call them and ask how one might order a copy?

Given the prolific nature of the man's art output, it may as well be.

/"invested" in a RoyL 30 years ago. Besides a couple big famous oils, his work is mainly shiatscreen like warhol's, churned out by the 100.  I think mine cost me $15,000 then, and is worth about $22,000 now.

here's a link to one rando site listing like 22 copies of the same image. Because that's what he did, farker.

It's a tiny little place. And now we're ready in case it gains a sea shore.

Yeah, but if the Rhine is navigable from there to the Bodensee, they could use that as their ocean.  It would be proportionate to the size of their country.

No, just substitute "Donald J. Trump" for "Spiro T. Agnew" in the original title so we could buy a matched set.

/You could also write a book titled something like "Donald Trump's Quotes on Morality and Character" featuring such gems as "Those who have the gold make the rules," "Got mine, fark you," and "Grab 'em by the pussy."

"Okay class, we've pretty much covered everything. Any questions?? No??? This is going to be a long semester."
