Re: Thoughts for ships

This will incentivize them to minimise the duration they put people on hold.

Re: Carnivorous Plants

I got a Venus fly trap when I was a kid. Instructions said to water it every two days and keep it in sunlight, so that's what I did. I caught a fly and fed it to the plant.

There is no British law equivalent that I'm aware of, and the bill to act system is basically the same anyway.

Law school is a four year undergraduate degree here. First year has to be taken with another degree but the other one doesn't have to be finished.
