Beating the Regulations

Spread the love


COMMENT: Dear Marty,

you repeatedly talked about the absurdity and stupidity of government regulations. I hope you like this one:
After the end of the World Economic Conference 2016 last night the hotel bar closed at 2:00 a.m. because there is a law in Florida that says “Bars have to close at 2:00 a.m. The barkeeper told us (international people from New Zealand, South Africa, USA, Switzerland, Germany and I don’t know where else from). The bar closes right now but you can order drinks at your room. So I (german) said: “OK, let’s order drinks to someone’s room and take them down here to the bar.” One guy standing next to me coming from New Zealand said: “Fine, I’ll do it.” After 10 minutes he returned with our drinks and we were rolling on the floor laughing! So to undermine the system you need an anti-authoritarian Kraut to work out the strategy and a courageous Kiwi to execute it.

Thank you for this great conference here in Orlando and bringing together all these amazing people from all over the world!

We really appreciate it!

Kind regards,
