    Default Those Religious people yet again...

    Now they are destroying the environment down in Brighton. In there case they will get bad karma.

    Two Buddhists who released £5,000 worth of crustaceans into the Channel as part of a religious ceremony have been fined almost £15,000 for causing “untold damage” to the environment.
    Their ritual was performed in the belief that returning animals to the wild is good karma. But because the crustaceans were not native species, they threatened other marine life and government agencies had to spend thousands of pounds in an attempt to recapture the shellfish, offering fishermen a bounty to reel them in.

    In the first case of its kind, Zhixiong Li, 30, an estate agent, and Ni Li, 33, a City banker, both from London, admitted wildlife offences and were fined.

    Both defendants pleaded guilty to releasing non-native species into the wild at Brighton magistrates’ court this week.

    Joseph Miller, prosecuting for the Marine Management Organisation, said the case first came to light after a Brighton fisherman captured some of the foreign shellfish in June 2015.

    CCTV footage from Brighton marina showed the group of Buddhists chartering three boats, having also bought more than £2,500 worth of native crabs and lobsters from Brighton and Newhaven Fish Sales at Shoreham harbour.

    Miller said Zhixiong Li had bought the local shellfish and hired the boat. Further investigations found that 361 American lobsters and 350 Dungeness (US) crabs had been bought from a wholesale fish supplier, SeeWoo, in Greenwich, south-east London, by Ni Li.

    I recently did a DC migration with TCS (lovely).
    They blessed the DC before we turned it on, and we then subsequently got complaints from HR for the swastikas above every door in the building.
    HR didn't seem to think that a swastika being a thousand year old Hindu symbol of peace was sufficient excuse.

    At least being Hindu they did not require the cables to be circumcised.

    How do you wire a plug without circumcising the cables?
