FTFA-For a decade, it went undefeated in the annual Skytrax 'World's Best Airports" awards, losing its crown to Qatar's Hamad International Airport in 2021...

Apart from bribing FIFA for the World Cup, Qatar apparently bribed Skytrax for that award.  Doha's airport is remarkable only in that you can't get a beer there unless you pay an exorbitant amount to get into a lounge.

No, they bring those people in bulk to do the actual work, then cram them in slums so the "citizens" don't have to see or worry about them.

When I was in Singapore, I saw little evidence of the supposed draconian rules - there was littering, plenty of public smoking, etc.

In fact, in terms of extreme rules and aggressive enforcement, many European countries do not screw around with traffic violations. In Norway, for example, they most definitely will pull you over for going 3km over the limit, and the fine is several hundred dollars - and speeding fines there can escalate to 10 percent of your income.

I had to fly home from Changi once back in the '80s. My flight reservation wasn't confirmed so the agent told me to get to the airport "as soon as it opened in the morning". Huh? An airport closing at night? What kind of chickenshiat is this? So I took the last boat shuttle from our ship at 10 PM and had to hang around Clifford pier for six hours because all the hotels were booked up. Finally I got so bored I took an expensive Singapore taxi to Changi. The airport itself was open but it was deserted, all the ticket counters closed until 7 AM. Somehow I confirmed my reservation and flew to San Francisco. I barely remember getting off the plane, getting into a taxi and going to a motel. I slept there for about 18 hours.

So, does Changi still shut down at night?

It's more the penalties than the rules.  Countries that have the death penalty are without exception subject to religious extremism and a wholly perverted judicial system biased in favor of the ruling elites.  Countries that still use corporal punishment are in a similar category.

'Disney with the Death Penalty" is not just a joke for Singapore, but at least they are more open about their particular form of barbarism.

I disagree. The death penalty is far more humane than locking persons in a cage for their lifetime. The problem arises when you have people convicted of crimes they did not commit. Most of that arises from being convicted purely on eye witness testimony and circumstantial evidence. Many justice systems have racial biases and bearing false witness baked right into them. If it were purely hard evidence to convict someone of a crime worthy of a death sentence, or any conviction for that matter, there'd be no problem with a death penalty. Why keep a JW Gacey around? So people can say look how civilized and enlightened we are that we keep a convicted killer alive in a cage. We could spend resources actually helping people, rather than helping murders and drug dealers with 3 hots and a cot for a lifetime. But as I eluded to earlier we can not have a death penalty because of those wrongly convicted.

Debating which is more humane, death penalty vs. lifetime incarceration is like arguing over who was the worst dictator.

My understanding is that in Singapore, corporal punishment is most often used for drug-related crimes. It's part of a world-wide pervasiveview that drug use of any kind should never be tolerated, that it's a criminal justice problem not a health problem, and that to deter it, there need to be draconian penalties, whether that's corporal punishment or decades-long prison sentences.

I guess here in the United States we can pat ourselves on the back for not caning people over low-level drug offenses, but we're still handing down ridiculous prison time, and thanks to gerrymandering, we have elected leaders who refuse to legalize marijuana despite the fact that virtually all Americans agree it should be legal for at least medical use, and 60 percent for recreational too.

I got to say, I am a fan of draconian speeding laws and aggressive enforcement. It's such a delight to drive in European countries with these policies -- nobody is racing down the highway, weaving in and out of traffic, etc. I live in Atlanta, and it feels like I narrowly dodge a traffic accident once a month from reckless drivers. I'd particularly would welcome average speed cameras on major thoroughfares in neighborhoods where people go ridiculous speeds -- there's absolutely no justification for going 10 or 15 over 25 or 35 -- that's how pedestrians get killed.

We had a good time wandering around Changi. We got in early and had an early flight to Phuket the next day, so we went to town and then came back to the airport and looked for the best chicken and rice in each terminal before heading to sleep in the airport hotel.

It's a very impressive airport. We really liked Singapore too.
