    That's simply not true and it sounds like the old meme spread some years ago that predators only go after certain prey, period. Wrong, while predators (and all animals in general) are largely...

    BTW, I've got a question for the OP:

    Is there much graffiti in Scandinavia? We seem to have a debate here in America if this is a form of littering/destruction of property or art....

    I'm not sure how to characterize the people's relationship with the Thailand Govt, but I know you don't spit out gum in that country:D Cops love to cite people for that. BTW, Bangkok is a really neat...
  4. Maybe I should have used the term, Conflicts...

    Maybe I should have used the term, Conflicts instead and yes, land ownership prevents tons of conflicts, but I emphasize prevents, not eliminates.

    Even in these countries with Freedom to Roam...
  5. Yes, I was talking more locally and I said...

    Yes, I was talking more locally and I said Prevent, not Eliminate.

    With respect to the larger picture, such as China's land grab that is currently going on, laws are not enough, you need a strong...

    I really don't understand your comment. Exactly what are you questioning? Do you question the fact that all people fight?

    Yeah, the idea that Indians (or any people) lived in harmony is just wrong. All people fight and especially when it comes to food sources and land. Land ownership and laws prevent wars.

    We're all...

    Yeah, if you're hiking the AT and all of a sudden decide to walk to the beach, you don't really need to worry about magnetic declination, but if you want to land at a specific beach, than you had...

    I guess the real question is: Why do we have such a problem here with people trashing places, be it public or private land?

    This has been a problem for a while and seems to be growing, but why is...

    I mentioned it before, but should emphasize that this is something that is deeply embedded in the culture of Norway (and a few other countries in that region), at least from what I've read and it's...

    The body wants what the body wants. That sandwich would be totally appealing to a starving thru-hiker that's been on the trail for over a month and doing serious rationing.

    I said above that I...

    I really do like the idea of not needing permits or paying to visit parks; I do wish we had that here in the U.S. but it seems like, at least what you hear on this site, that many people love the...

    I was NOT blaming the law, I agree that it's the people that break the law which are at fault. The problem is that when your population increases, the amount of law breakers increase and that will...

    BTW, not all is peachy in Norway with this law, proving once again that it's seldom greener on the other side of the hill. Apparently some tourists taking advantage of the Freedom to Roam law

    From the little reading I've done already, this law doesn't just apply to private property.

    BTW, for all on here that don't understand the concept of property ownership and want this law here in the U.S., keep in mind this goes way beyond simply walking across a tract of land. It would mean...

    One thing I forgot to mention is that I totally agree that the permit system and pay systems we have here in the US for parks is something I totally hate and in that area, I would very much like to...

    Interesting thread Oslohiker.

    I definitely agree that Norway is NOT a socialist country, very much a capitalistic, and with an economy based much on oil reserves from the North Sea.

    Personally,...

    I don't know if they are all Africanized, that sounds dubious; however, I agree with the other two points, that their sting is no different than a European honeybee and that they are very much more...

    Same thing happened to me in Maine. I was going uphill, directly into the rising sun, so I put on my cycling cap to keep the sun out of my eyes and I got into a very good rhythm when all of a sudden,...

    I'm not an expert either, but I don't think just the act of swatting a bee with release those pheromones, unless you smash it, then maybe that will be enough to get them pheromones on you; and of...

    Let's not forget that, thanks to our conservation efforts, a lot of animal populations are rebounding. I remember so many animals that were endangered when I was a kid, but virtually all of them are...
