R201 - Ban on standard glass bottle caps

Post by miokalia » Thu Mar 17, 2011 9:42 am

Yaro Fourier, after being unable to remove the cap from a bottle without destroying it and causing minor cosmetic damage to his claws, flew into a rage of righteous indignation and took it out on the Federation Council.
After angrily tearing through some recent WA briefs, he found a proposal authored by someone who experienced the same issue, so he ported a comparable proposal for a Resolution over to the council.
(http://www.nationstates.net/page=UN_vie ... 1300357037)

WHEREAS: Standard bottlecaps requiring a "bottle opener" and not compatible with the obvious "twist off" methodology have caused undue trauma and consternation among people
WHEREAS: Many minor injuries are inflicted upon beverage users by these dangerous cap configurations.
WHEREAS: Attempting to open these with one's teeth can cause tremendous dental damage which can cost as much as $6000 to repair poorly, and as much as $10,000 to repair sufficently (I'm actually not kidding about this one).
RECOGNIZING: That these non-twist-off bottle caps are complete evil and must be stopped with extreme prejudice.

BE IT RESOLVED: That "standard" or non-twist-off bottle caps be permanently banned within the jurisdiction of the Furry Federation for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever.

Representative Fourier said,
"I'm pretty much over it now. And actually, I do agree with the representative there. This isn't really something that warrants a law at all.

So I am going to vote no on my own proposition."
